3. Delivery of Goods, Shipping
3.1. The Seller shall inform the Buyer of the delivery deadline for the goods prior to entering into the contract. If the Seller does not communicate this deadline and no written schedule for the delivery of goods exists between the Parties, then it shall be assumed that the Seller will deliver the goods to the Buyer within a period proportionate to the usual time, which comprises the production process and delivery of the goods. In the case of the procedure according to the previous sentence, the Buyer shall not be entitled to refuse to take over the goods (or a part thereof) on the grounds that the performance is premature. The delivery period shall begin from the approval of the author's proofreading, production of a GMG proof, or a physical 1:1 sample according to Article 9, whichever comes last. In the event that the Seller is to provide a gradual performance, the Buyer must send the Seller an express request, before entering into a purchase contract, containing the dates of individual deliveries in the form of a schedule; if this schedule is accepted by the Seller, its shall be explicitly stated in the order / purchase contract. The Parties therefore expressly agree that any and all prior communications regarding delivery deadlines must be stated in the order / purchase contract, otherwise they shall be disregarded.

If the Buyer fails to cooperate by confirming the delivery address, or informs the Seller that it refuses to take over the goods without an objective and serious reason, the Seller shall be entitled to deliver the goods to the Buyer without the Buyer’s consent or cooperation. If the Buyer refuses to take over the goods (i.e. refuses the goods upon an actual attempt at delivery, or refuses a delivery by e-mail or letter), the goods shall be deemed to have been duly delivered, and the Seller shall be entitled, in compliance with paragraph 3.5 of this Article, to request payment of the purchase price, reimbursement of the costs of transporting the goods back to the Seller’s premises, and a storage fee.
3.3. If there are no obstacles preventing the delivery of goods, the Seller shall be obliged to deliver the goods by the agreed deadline or within a period appropriate to the nature of the goods and the place of delivery. The Seller is entitled to deliver the goods sooner. In such a case, the Buyer shall not be entitled to refuse the goods. Objective obstacles to the delivery of goods are considered to comprise any circumstances which are not the fault of the Seller, particularly malfunctions, problems with the transport of goods from a supplier of the Seller, strikes, road closures, events of force majeure, delays due to a customs process, etc. If the Seller is delayed in delivering the goods for reasons specified in the preceding sentence, the Buyer shall not be entitled to refuse to take over the goods, to withdraw from the contract, or to request any kind of compensation from the Seller.
3.4. The Buyer is obliged to accept the goods and confirm delivery on the delivery note. Unless a record of damage is made at the same time, the Buyer confirms by accepting the goods that the packaging of the shipment was intact upon delivery. If it is not possible to confirm defects in the quantity or quality of goods on the delivery note, for reasons on the part of the freight forwarder, the delivery note will be sent electronically prior to the delivery of the goods via e-mail. If the Buyer fails to send the delivery note with sufficient qualitative or quantitative reservations to the Seller immediately after receipt of the goods (no later than the same day), the Buyer is deemed to have accepted the goods without reservations. Damage to the packaging of goods must be noted as a damage record in the presence of the forwarder’s employee, as later claims will not be considered by the Seller. In the case of reservations, the Buyer shall proceed in accordance with Article 6 of the Terms and Conditions.
3.5. If the Buyer fails to take over the goods at the place that the Buyer has specified and, as a result, it becomes necessary to redeliver the goods or to deliver them in another way than agreed, the Buyer shall be obliged to pay the costs associated with the redelivery or different means of delivery. If the Buyer fails to take over the goods, the Seller shall be entitled to charge the Buyer a storage fee in the sum of 0.5% of the purchase price, excluding VAT, for each day until the goods are taken over, however in a minimum sum of CZK 220, excluding VAT, per pallet and commenced day of the delay.
3.6. The Seller is also entitled to partial fulfillment of the Agreement.
3.7. The Buyer shall always receive the actual quantity of goods produced in accordance with the tolerances stated in Article 11 of these Terms and Conditions.
3.8. The shipping cost is stated in the offer.
3.9. In the case of dispatch of the subject of the Purchase Agreement on pallets, the Seller will charge EUR 8, without VAT, for each delivered pallet, unless they are compensated by exchange. The Buyer undertakes to hand over for exchange to the Seller’s forwarder only the pallets that correspond to the type and quality of the pallets delivered to the Buyer by the Seller in the delivery of the goods. Otherwise, the Seller is not obliged to accept such pallets.
3.10. The goods are most frequently shipped in paper cartons in the Seller’s standard dimensions. The quantity of products within a carton varies, however, they are always filled so that unnecessary waste is avoided. The cartons are usually marked or labeled with the basic information with respect to the carton contents, such as the name and type of products it contains, quantity etc., along with an indication of the Buyer for clear identification. If the Buyer has specific requirements for labeling, marking, packaging or indication on the cartons, the Buyer must inform the Seller of this fact before the Purchase Agreement is concluded. The Seller is entitled to reject the requirements for packing, labeling, or markings made after the Purchase Agreement is concluded and to deliver the goods to the Buyer according to the Seller’s standard conditions. The Seller is also, however, entitled to pack, mark or label the goods in another way, depending on the nature of the goods.

If the Buyer fails to make a claim within this period, the goods shall be considered to have been duly delivered. If the goods are deemed to have been duly delivered according to the preceding sentence, the Buyer shall also lose the right to make a claim for defects for deliveries of further goods which are identical to the goods that are deemed to have been duly delivered. Should the specifications of the goods be subsequently modified due to a claim for defects or other actions of the Parties, then the newly agreed specifications shall fully replace the originally agreed specifications for future deliveries. Any kind of changes according to the preceding sentence, however, shall require the Seller’s express consent.
6.4. The Parties have expressly agreed that goods produced on the basis of the agreed purchase contract may show the deviations or tolerances specified in Article 11, which they shall not consider to be defects for the purposes of the purchase contract. The Buyer acknowledges that claims for defects can only be made within the scope of the mutually agreed specifications of the goods. If the Buyer has a requirement for the goods that does not ensue from the mutually approved specifications, and which the Seller may not necessarily be aware of when entering into the contract, then goods provided by the Seller that fail to comply with such a requirement shall not be considered defective, but rather defect-free in compliance with the purchase contract.
6.5. The Seller shall resolve any claim in accordance with the Civil Code and other generally binding legal regulations, provided that the subject of the sale is defective and the claims to the Seller for liability for defects are satisfied as follows: delivery of the missing part of the item of sale or supply of substitute goods or a reasonable discount on the subject of sale or the removal of other defects.

Sochora 27, 170 00 Prague 7.
9. Interpretation of Terms – Print Matrices, Matrix, Proofs, GMG Proof, 1:1 Sample and Plastic Bag Abbreviations
9.1. Printing matrices – A matrix (block, cylinder, photopolymer) is a print template used to print on products in flexographic production. This is a cost billed to the Buyer separately to the sales price of the product. The print matrix is kept by the Buyer and can be re-used in the event of repeat orders. Its price is based on the number of colors, print surface area and the material of the given product. The exact price can only be calculated based on the print data received. The Buyer is entitled to request the Seller to send the exact amount for the matrix prior to conclusion of the Purchase Agreement. If the Buyer sends print data after the conclusion of the Purchase Agreement, the exact cost will be reflected on the invoice prepared by the Seller following dispatch of the goods, unless otherwise agreed.
9.2. Author/Designer Proof – For each new order with new print data (graphics) from the Buyer, the Seller will produce an author/designer proof prepared according to the options and limitations of the chosen technology and product. The author/designer proof is usually not processed again for the Buyer’s repeat orders already agreed to in previous executions. The maximum print area of the selected technology will be simulated directly in a preview of the author/designer proof. If the Seller has made more extensive adjustments, such as redrawing graphics or adding graphic elements that were not delivered to the Buyer in the author/designer’s proof, the Seller is entitled to charge an additional fee of EUR 30/hour for the time required for this processing. The proof, most commonly sent in PDF format, is used to reconcile the placement of individual graphic elements in a specific product size format. Approval of the author/designer proof by the Buyer is binding and any subsequent claims will not be considered. The author/designer proof does not serve as a binding color preview if the work in question involves a complex CMYK printing or a 1: 1 sample has been produced following communication with the Customer. For printing directly in Pantone colors, the Buyer delivers the selected color according to the Pantone color chart or a color is proposed to the buyer during the author/designer proofing. If a GMG proof or a 1:1 sample is delivered to the Buyer for the order, these physical prints have priority over an author/designer proof and final production will be made on the basis of their approval.
9.3. GMG proof – used for approving CMYK prints made with flexographic technology. This involves producing a physical proof with an emphasis on the colors of individual graphic elements whose positions and placement have already been confirmed by the Buyer according to an approved designer’s proof. A GMG proof is always sent to the Buyer in physical form to the stated address, and with its approval, the Seller commits to preserving the demonstrated color scheme and the Buyer agrees to accepting the goods if the approved color scheme is maintained.
9.4. A 1:1 sample - Physical 1:1 sample - shall only be made after an agreement with the customer, specifically in the event of increased costs for offset printing technology and flexographic printing technology for the manufacture of products from woven, non-woven, cotton and other textile materials. The production of a sample shall be invoiced to the Buyer in a pre-agreed amount with a delivery date of 2-3 weeks, unless agreed otherwise. Samples serve for the approval of colour, size, material and its weight in grams, and other technical elements, such as surface treatment, type and design of handles, or printing effects. Upon approval of a 1:1 sample, the seller undertakes to deliver the goods in similar specifications to such a sample, and the Buyer undertakes to take over the goods, provided that the basic specifications of the approved 1:1 sample are complied with. Compliance with the specifications means adherence to the basic visual appearance of the goods according to the sample and adherence to the dimensions of the goods (this shall not affect production tolerance). Any differences in the design of the goods which do not affect the actual or anticipated usability of the product, or which do not alter its appearance in comparison with the approved sample, shall not be considered non-compliances with the specifications of the goods according to this paragraph. If the Seller makes a sample in accordance with the above at the request of the Buyer, at least 2 counterparts of every such sample shall be made. The Parties shall then each retain one counterpart of the approved sample, and shall confirm this fact in writing specifying the order number. The Buyer is aware that samples are always produced by hand, and may therefore vary from the goods described above, while still complying with the specifications of the goods.

10. Description of Individual Production Technologies
10.1. Flexography (Flexographic) – Technology used to print on low-density polyethylene (LDPE) film, high-density polyethylene (HDPE), paper, non-woven and woven textile materials, cardboard boxes, food storage bags and other bags. Flexographic production allows the option of edge-to-edge (full bleed) printing, complex CMYK printing and personally-selected dimensions with extensive production limits. A print matrix is always required – see explanation of terms below.
Minimum print run for flexography is 5000 items, unless stated otherwise.
10.2. Screen Printing – This technology is used exclusively for printing on already produced products, for example, promotional bags. Printing is possible in direct colors specified according to the Pantone color chart. The print area is restricted and always shown in the designer’s proof. Each color is applied to the surface separately. Multi-color designs may show minor deviations due to the overlay printing technique. An advantage of this technology is the color saturation and coverage.
The minimum print quantity for screen printing is 1000 items, unless stated otherwise.
10.3. Offset Printing – Offset printing technology is used for printing on paper or textile. This is our highest-quality printing technology and allows various surface finishes to be added according to the customer’s requirements, such as lamination, UV partial varnishing, 3D partial varnishing or embossing and other print effects. For gift bags and boxes, the customer can also choose the color of the handles. This technology allows the type of material, weight and size to be selected and makes it possible to print on the entire surface area of both inner and outer sides of the product with complex CMYK printing.
The minimum quantity for offset technology is 1000 items, unless stated otherwise.
10.4. Digital Printing – Digital printing technology is suitable for printing on plastic and paper materials. It is used for more complex printing and performed in smaller quantities when it is not possible to print using flexographic technology. Printing is performed on a white base. One advantage is the possibility to personalize the product, which allows each product to have a different graphic motif.
The minimum quantity for digital print technology is 1000 items, unless stated otherwise
11. Production Options, Tolerances and Deviations for Individual Technologies
11.1. General tolerances in the quantity of units produced
- 5000 – 99,000 units: +/- 10 %,
- 100,000 units and: +/- 5 %
11.1.2. Screen printing: no tolerance
11.1.3. Offset: +/- 10 %
11.1.4. Digital printing: +/- 10 %
11.2. Other general tolerances and deviations for flexographic technology
11.2.1. Products made of plastic (LDPE) and high-density (HDPE) materials
In flexographic production, the front and reverse sides are printed next to each other. A gap of approximately 1.5 mm is between the two sides, which disappears either partially or entirely after heat sealing. For edge-to-edge printing on LDPE plastic and HDPE plastic products, fine white lines may appear.
Due to the thin layer of color printed on the film using flexography, it is not possible to use any colors other than black, gold or silver on pre-colored film. When printing on clear (transparent) film, it is recommended to first print the base in white and then print the desired motif over this. A slight misalignment of the white color and the printed motif may occur during this process.
220.127.116.11. LDPE Plastic Bags and Totes
- Thickness: +/- 4 %
- Width may be narrower by 5–10 mm
- Height may be smaller by 5–10 mm
- Height of the folded bottom: +/- 5 mm
· Placement of pass-through: +/- 5 mm in the horizontal and vertical axes
18.104.22.168. HDPE Poly Bags
- Film thickness: film: +/- 0,005 mm
- Width may be narrower by 5–10 mm
- Height may be smaller by 5– 10 mm
· Placement of pass-through: +/- 5 mm in the horizontal and vertical directions
11.2.2. Paper products – Depending on the material selected, the color may differ slightly from the approved designer proof or GMG proofs. The underlying color of the bags affects the color of the printed ink. In flexography when white paper is used as the base, the selected color shade may be lighter, whereas with natural brown paper, it may be darker. By concluding a purchase agreement, the Buyer acknowledges that in the case of flexographic printing on paper products, slight deviations from the desired color resulting from the selected paper material may occur.
22.214.171.124. Paper bags, boxes, totes and cardboard boxes
· Deviations in width, depth and height may be +/- 2–10 mm, depending on the size of the product
· Weight of the paper or cardboard may fluctuate by +/- 5–10%, depending on the nature of the material
11.3. The Seller draws attention to and the Buyer notes that laminating during production may affect the color of the printed material beneath the lamination layer and in such case, it is not possible to claim a defect in print color. For approval of color, a color proof, the GMG proof or a 1: 1 sample product is used, which will be provided by the Seller. This sample and GMG proof may incur a charge and will depend on the Seller’s pricing and business strategy.
11.4. The Seller draws attention to and the Buyer notes that in the case of using OXO additives in HDPE or LDPE film (so-called eco-friendly film), the durability of the material cannot be guaranteed as this material begins to decompose practically immediately after production due to oxidation and the effects of heat and light. This is an unstable material, which if stored properly, usually maintains its properties and lifespan for around one to two years.
11.5. The Seller advises and the Buyer notes that the Buyer should become physically acquainted with the characteristics of the goods before concluding the Purchase Agreement. For this purpose, the Seller will provide a sample to the Buyer on request. According to the sample provided, the Buyer may acquaint themselves with the specific features of the goods and printing that may not be included in the Purchase Agreement. If the Buyer does not do so, it is deemed that the goods have characteristics that are appropriate to their nature (such as load capacity, handle appearance, print quality differences based on different printing technologies, material quality, etc.).
12. Additional Provisions
12.1. Offsetting of receivables or their holding against claims of the Seller or application of any kind of right of lien on goods or lien on the goods by the Buyer is excluded.
12.2. The Seller is entitled to assign a receivable, including the accessories resulting from the invoice of the Factoring Service Provider. If the Seller makes use of this service, the Buyer will make a payment to the account of the Factoring Service Provider as instructed by the Seller. The Buyer’s obligation arising from this invoice is satisfied only by fulfillment to the benefit of the Factoring Services Provider. All necessary data is listed on the invoice (bank, account number, Factoring Services Notice). The Seller is entitled to use factoring services without the Buyer’s consent. The Seller’s decision to use/not use factoring services is not predetermined by the payment morale of the Buyer.
