Disclaimer

Whilst the internal production process may verify that material is within specification the onus is placed firmly on tradehouse/sender to supply material to specification. It is also a requirement that advertising material is delivered on time so quality measures can take place. Late material may miss these checking procedures which could pick up possible problems/errors.

Pacific Magazines reserves the right to refuse any material that does not meet the required Specifications.
