Digital Printing – Colour
Please be aware that when matching existing digital prints, colour sometimes varies when printed at different times. This is due to atmospheric temperatures and humidity. There is a chance the colours may vary slightly if we have to match your existing signage. However, we will endeavour to get as close possible to the original. Should this be a problem, please contact your account manager prior to commencement.
Specific colour matching – At Kingman we endeavour to meet any colour specifications you provide to ensure your brand guidelines are met. Please be aware that all colours look different in different lighting conditions. A colour may appear correct in daylight but not correct in fluorescent lighting conditions. Please advise what kind of lighting we need to consider when matching your colours.
Digital Printing Installation
Applying digital prints to walls freshly painted will only be warranted if the following conditions are met:
- Walls are to be prepared professionally by removing all gyprock dust, sealed and undercoated and finish coated;
- Walls are to be painted free of blemishes and bumps;
- Paints with Teflon (such as wash n wear) should never be used and will void all warranty;
- Walls must be painted a minimum of 7 days prior to print installation to allow for the paint to adequately dry.
Digital print application to glass off-site is not warranted by Kingman. This is due to the number of people handling the glass once it leaves our factory. These include the transport contractor and glaziers. Once the glass arrives on site, modifications may be made by the glazier installers which prevents the graphics on panels lining up with the next. As neither the transport nor glaziers will offer guarantees for handling or artwork lining up, we have been forced to do the same.
We recommend that any graphics that are to be applied to glass be done so on site. In the instances where this cannot happen, we ask a representative of your company to attend our factory and sign off on the installation or alternatively a waiver. Should damage occur after the glass leaves our factory, costs for replacement or repairs will be charged accordingly.
Kingman Engineers reports exclude the structural soundness of all surfaces including walls, footings ceilings and roofs or any structure that a sign is fixed to. Accordingly Kingman accepts no responsibility for damage caused to a sign, premises, surrounds, vehicles or people, where the structure is found to be unsound.
