We reserve the right not to begin work on a project until such letters or purchase orders are received and approved by 1833menus.com. Such approvals would
constitute an agreement between us in accordance with terms specified in such letters or purchase orders.

for certain work done, we will under no circumstances produce any work on a purely speculative basis.


A quotation not accepted within 30 days may be changed. All quotes are based on material costs at time of quotation. It must be understood that an estimate is just that. The final cost for a project may be
less or more than estimated. Factors most often not present when estimates are given include the following:

Unless otherwise specified, our fees do not include such items as photography,
outside scans, illustrations and other such contracted artwork, copywriting, retouching,
color separations, printing, paper, messenger services, shipping, postage,
and long-distance telephone calls and faxes. These items will be regarded as out-of-pocket expenses
and will be billed in addition to our regular fees, and may be subject to a standard service charge.
In no case can a phone estimate be considered anything but “ballpark.” As a rule, we do not engage
in phone estimates.


If the scope or nature of the job changes to such an extent that the original “Letter of Agreement” or purchase order is no longer applicable, a new or additional letter or purchase order should be submitted and agreed to by both parties before any further work proceeds. Alpha will not be responsible for errors in production if customer does not supply comparison proofs (laser or ink jet copies) or any changes to project not
submitted in writing. Verbal requests are not accepted as proof of change to order.

ownership rights in the goods, materials, and/or services being purchased
by the purchase order or “Letter of Agreement,” and will relinquish all such copyright and other
ownerships when reimbursed for the goods, materials, and/or services purchased. This reimbursement shall
consist of charges at 1833menus.com rates for the above-mentioned and will be shown on a numbered 1833menus.com

for the work have been paid or satisfied in full. It is the customer’s responsibility to maintain a
copy of the original file. 1833menus.com is not responsible for accidental damage to media supplied by
the customer or for the accuracy of furnished input or final output. Any additional translating,
editing, or programming needed to utilize customer-supplied files will be charged at 1833menus’.com

Because of the differences in equipment, paper, inks, toner, and other conditions between color proofing and production operations, a reasonable variation in color between color proofs and the completed job is to be expected. Whether a difference is a reasonable variation shall be determined by 1833menus.com in good faith and its sole
and absolute discretion. When a variation of this kind occurs, it will be considered acceptable performance.
