These General Terms and Conditions (“Terms”) apply to any and all products of Joram Corporation, dba Polyfuze Graphics Corporation (“Polyfuze Graphics Corporation” or “Seller”) purchased or used by any person, entity or other organization acquiring those products (“Purchaser”).

To the extent reasonably possible, Seller will attempt to ship Products to Purchaser by the requested shipment date and/or in time to meet any requested delivery date in any Purchase Order. Seller cannot control actual in-transit shipping times. Production schedules can vary due to a variety of reasons and, therefore, shipment and delivery dates cannot be guaranteed.
Unless otherwise stated in these Terms, the delivery terms will be F.O.B. Seller’s warehouse. Purchaser may specify to Seller the carrier Purchaser desires to carry the Products in writing at least seven (7) business days prior to shipment.

If no carrier is specified (or use of such requested carrier is not reasonably practicable), Seller may select any recognized common carrier without responsibility or liability to Purchaser for such selection. Seller shall have no obligation to arrange for any valuation of the Products being shipped over and above the standard valuation provided in the carrier’s tariffs or other rate schedules at the lowest rates of carriage. Purchaser acknowledges that the risk of loss shall pass to Purchaser upon the common carrier taking possession of the Products and that Purchaser shall have the sole responsibility to insure the Products against loss and/or make any special arrangements or valuations with the carrier.

4) PROOF APPROVAL
There is a proof approval process that must be completed by both Seller and Purchaser prior to the start of the initial production of Products by Seller. The proof approval process includes, but is not limited to: confirmation of material type and the material color that the Products will be applied to and confirmation of any items related to compliance of the finished part. Any Purchaser supplied art will need to be reviewed by Seller and prepared for processing. Prior to production Purchaser will receive a digital proof approval from the Seller. Once the Purchaser provides proof approval and ink match is complete, production will be scheduled by Seller. Proof approval is the process for Purchaser’s pre-production Products inspection approval. NOTE: Colors may not match Pantone colors specified on various color monitors or printers.
5) GRAPHICS OR PRODUCT TECHNICAL SPECIFICATION
Polyfuze Graphics Corporation Surface Enhancer Products and Graphic Transfer Products are intended for application to polyolefin materials. All Polyfuze Graphics Corporation Products are comprised of compatible pigmented material instead of ink. Proper application may require variations in time, temperature, and pressure. Purchaser and Seller understand these settings will impact performance of the Products. Purchaser is solely responsible for proper application. Upon proper application, Polyfuze Graphics Corporation Products will fuse to become a permanent part of the polyolefin product they are applied to. As a result, after proper application, the Products will be bound by the same molecular properties as the polyolefin part itself including some color fade and chalking over time.
GRAPHIC TRANSFER PROCESS CONSIDERATIONS: The color of a Polyfuze Graphics Corporation Graphic Transfer in its raw material form may appear different prior to fusion with polyolefin part. Slight color shift may occur when using a light colored Graphic Transfer on a dark colored part. Various in the customers plastic can also contribute to color shift.
Graphic Transfer Products made to meet specific regulatory compliance may limit color pallet and exact color match, while reducing light fastness and weather ability.
6) SHORTAGES AND OVERAGES
Polyfuze Graphics Corporation has established a 5% manufacturing policy which means that we occasionally experience shortages or overages on custom order quantities due to normal manufacturing processes. By placing a purchase order, you acknowledge, understand and accept that your orders may be over or under by a maximum of 5% (though we normally print extra Products for each job). In the event that we produce less or more than you ordered (within our 5% policy) we will adjust your invoice accordingly. Individual unit prices are locked-in at the time of order confirmation and will not be adjusted with + / – %5. NOTE: When placing an order, please make sure you don’t leave yourself in a situation where your business is negatively impacted by a shortage of Products.
7) LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
Notwithstanding any provision herein to the contrary, and other than as otherwise expressly set forth herein, Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that Seller shall have no liability to Purchaser in connection with the products in excess of the total amount of consideration paid to Seller hereunder. No action shall be brought by Purchaser for any breach of any contract arising or resulting from this Agreement more than one year after the cause of action therefor accrues.
8) FORCE MAJEURE
Seller shall not be liable for any failure or delay in performance for the period that such failure or delay is due to causes beyond its control, such as but not limited to War, Acts of God, Forces of Nature, fire, earthquakes, drought, floods, acts of terrorism, strikes and any other matters beyond Seller’s reasonable control.
