3) Color Matching
Skippers-Ink sells its products through an E-Commerce Web Site viewable by computers connected to the Internet. These computers may view Skippers-Ink 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.
Further, computer monitors display images with light and use a standard known as RGB to do so. Skippers-Ink produces products in a variety of ways (CMYK, PMS, and others) that do not use light.
As such, you agree that Skippers-Ink 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. Skippers-Ink 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.
Skippers-Ink sells products made out of several different types of materials: Canvas, Aluminum, Galvanized Steel, Acrylic, plastics, glass, Stainless Steel and wood. You agree that you have read our website and/or researched independently and that you know what each of these materials is and what you are buying. Skippers-Ink only guarantees that you will receive the materials advertised on the Web Site that you purchase. You agree that Skippers-Ink is not responsible for products received that are made of materials thought by the purchaser to be something other than advertised on the Web Site.
