The primary value of the SignMonkey.com Website (Web Site) is the ability for users and potential purchasers (“Users”) to create signs and graphics that display any content they choose. This is done by means of computer interaction alone between the Users and the Web Site.
As such, you agree that no SignMonkey.com employee, employer, officer, owner, agent or authorized representative is responsible for monitoring the content of the signs or graphics created or uploaded by Users, neither while on the website, nor after purchase and during the production process.

You, as a User, have many opportunities during the purchasing process to check your purchase for layout and content and agree that you have done so.

Including but not limited to: color, font size, font type, font style, font color, position of text, position of graphics, color of graphics, quantity of text, quantity of graphics, spelling of text, use of text, size of graphics, justification of graphics, justification of images, or color of the background.

SignMonkey.com sells its products through an E-Commerce Web Site viewable by computers connected to the Internet. These computers may view SignMonkey.com products solely through their computer screens (“Monitors”). Monitors may be configured to display images and colors in a variety of ways, both through the use of hardware setup and software setup. There are many possible settings for Monitors and there is no true uniform standard to which all Monitors conform. What may look one way on one monitor, will look different on another.
Furthermore, computer monitors display images with light and use a standard known as RGB to do so. SignMonkey.com produces products in a variety of ways (CMYK, PMS, and others) that do not use light.
As such, you agree that SignMonkey.com does not guarantee that the colors, as they appear on the screen, will look the same as the colors as they appear on the purchased product. SignMonkey.com works hard to make the colors on the screen be as true as possible to the printed colors, however, the differences in Monitors and the differences between light and pigment make it impossible to guarantee matching colors for all Users.
SignMonkey.com permits users to upload images onto their signs and products through the SignMonkey.com Web Site. You agree that SignMonkey.com is not responsible for the quality of the images you upload. The SignMonkey.com Web Site attempts to make a “best guess” as to the best viewing distance of your image based on the internally stored DPI (Dots Per Inch) contained in the image file. The Web Site assumes that 100 DPI is best viewed from 3.5 feet and tries to make a best distance estimate based on that assumption.
You agree that you alone are responsible for making sure that the quality of the image you are uploading is of high enough quality to be satisfactory to you at the size you select on the sign or product that you are purchasing.
Images are created and stored in a variety of ways and you agree that SignMonkey.com is not responsible for ensuring quality images for any image file format uploaded to the Web Site.
