Spelling, spacing, grammatical errors

g. It is important to ensure foreign fonts or scripts (e.g. Chinese or Thai etc.…) are displayed correctly.
h. No print run is identical, and deviations may happen due to different techniques and materials. Potential deviations and how we propose to resolve any issues are discussed below, to ensure the product stays as true as possible to the design.
i. Colour Deviations
Our experts are eager to deliver the highest quality to you. However, colour deviations do occur and accuracy may slightly deviate from the provided artwork files. When placing an order with Zenprint you accept certain limitations regarding the colour accuracy. This includes, but is not limited to:
There is no guarantee for the same colour as compared to the screen or online proof colours. There may be significant changes when changing from the screen calibrated RGB to the printer based CMYK profile. Moreover, each screen can show different colors, independently of the exact color profile.
The same colours as previous print runs.
The same colours compared to digital proof colours, up to 5 % deviation.
The same colour within a print-run (first vs. last).
j. Deviation in physical dimensions (Size/Cutting/Etc.)
The deviation in size can be up to 3mm.
The deviation of the cutting position can be up to 2mm.
Orders can be printed with up to 5% variation in size.

m. Zenprint offers different methods of proofing before releasing your order to production. Some are included in the design price and some will be available at an additional cost. We mainly distinguish between:
Online proof: Included in the purchase price. The purpose of the online proof is to check whether all the elements are in place, and not to check the color accurrary. Hence, it can display significant differences to the final product in terms of color accuracy.
Digital Proof Print: Charged on an item by item basis. The proof print is color-proof and will be closer to the final product, with a possible deviation of up to 20 %.
