Acceptance
The Client is taken to have exclusively accepted and is immediately bound, jointly and severally, by these terms and conditions if the Client places an order for or accepts delivery of the Goods.
In the event of any inconsistency between the terms and conditions of this Contract and any other prior document or schedule that the parties have entered into, the terms of this Contract shall prevail.
Any amendment to the terms and conditions contained in this Contract may only be amended in writing by the consent of both parties.
The Client acknowledges that:
the supply of Goods on credit shall not take effect until the Client has completed a credit application with VP and it has been approved with a credit limit established for the account. In the event that the supply of Goods request exceeds the Client’s credit limit and/or the account exceeds the payment terms, VP reserves the right to refuse delivery.
VP reserves the right not to supply any Goods, or refuse to accept any Copy, at any time for any reason (including where such, in VP’s opinion is or may be unlawful, offensive, contains Prohibited Content, does not comply with clause 13, or is otherwise inappropriate), and VP shall not be liable to the Client for any such action; and

Electronic signatures shall be deemed to be accepted by either party providing that the parties have complied with Section 226 of the Contract and Commercial Law Act 2017 or any other applicable provisions of that Act or any Regulations referred to in that Act.
Authorised Representatives
The Client acknowledges that VP (for the duration of the Services) liaises directly with one (1) or more authorised representatives, and that once introduced as such to VP that person or persons shall have the full authority of the Client to order any Goods and/or to request any variation thereto on the Client’s behalf. The Client accepts that they will be solely liable to VP for all additional costs incurred by VP (including VP’s profit margin) in providing any Services or variation/s requested thereto by the Client’s duly authorised representative.
In the event that the Client’s duly authorised representatives as per clause 1 are to have only limited authority to act on the Client’s behalf then the Client must specifically and clearly advise VP in writing of the parameters of the limited authority granted to their representatives.
Errors and Omissions
The Client acknowledges and accepts that VP shall, without prejudice, accept no liability in respect of any alleged or actual error(s) and/or omission(s):
resulting from an inadvertent mistake made by VP in the formation and/or administration of this Contract; and/or
contained in/omitted from any literature (hard copy and/or electronic) supplied by VP in respect of the Services.
In the event such an error and/or omission occurs in accordance with clause 1, and is not attributable to the negligence and/or wilful misconduct of VP; the Client shall not be entitled to treat this Contract as repudiated nor render it invalid.
Change in Control
The Client shall give VP not less than fourteen (14) days prior written notice of any proposed change of ownership of the Client and/or any other change in the Client’s details (including but not limited to, changes in the Client’s name, address and contact phone or fax number/s, change of trustees or business practice). The Client shall be liable for any loss incurred by VP as a result of the Client’s failure to comply with this clause.
On-Line Ordering
The Client acknowledges and agrees that:
VP does not guarantee the website’s performance; and
display on the website does not guarantee the availability of any particular Goods; therefore, all orders placed through the website shall be subject to confirmation of acceptance by VP; and
on-line ordering may be unavailable from time to time for regularly scheduled maintenance and/or upgrades; and
there are inherent hazards in electronic distribution, and as such VP cannot warrant against delays or errors in transmitting data between the Client and VP including orders, and you agree that to the maximum extent permitted by law, VP will not be liable for any losses which the Client suffers as a result of online-ordering not being available or for delays or errors in transmitting orders; and
when making a transaction through the website, the Client’s information will pass through a secure server using SSL (secure sockets layer) encryption technology or any other similar technology as disclosed by VP and/or displayed on the website. The encryption process ensures that the Client’s information cannot be read by or altered by outside influences; and
if the Client is not the cardholder for any credit card being used to pay for the Goods, VP shall be entitled to reasonably assume that the Client has received permission from the cardholder for use of the credit card for the transaction.
VP reserves the right to terminate the Client’s order if it learns that you have provided false or misleading information, interfered with other users or the administration of VP’s business, or violated these terms and conditions.
Price and Payment
At VP’s sole discretion the Price shall be either:
as indicated on any invoice provided by VP to the Client; or
the Price as at the date of Delivery of the Goods according to VP’s current price list; or
VP’s quoted price (subject to clause 2) which will be valid for the period stated in the quotation or otherwise for a period of thirty (30) days.
VP reserves the right to change the Price:
if a variation to the Goods which are to be supplied is requested; or
if a variation to the Services originally scheduled (including, any applicable plans or specification changes that incorporate a change of style, type, layout, artwork or where additional proof changes are required to the Services) is requested; or
extra work caused by the Client’s corrections, including resetting and/or over-running of composition; or
where additional Services are required due to the discovery of hidden or unidentifiable difficulties (including, but not limited to, change in scope of work required, change to methodology and quantities, inaccurate measurements, change of design, print colour, ink, paper or medium, size of embellishments, delivery or any delays caused by the Client, ) which are only discovered on commencement of the Services; or
in the event of increases to VP in the cost of labour or materials (including but not limited to overseas transactions that may increase as a consequence of variations in foreign currency rates of exchange and/or international freight and insurance charges) which are beyond VP’s control
Variations will be charged for on the basis of VP’s quotation, and will be detailed in writing, and shown as variations on VP’s invoice. The Client shall be required to respond to any variation submitted by VP within ten (10) working days. Failure to do so will entitle VP to add the cost of the variation to the Price. Payment for all variations must be made in full at the time of their completion.
At VP’s sole discretion a fifty percent (50%) deposit of the contract Price may be required up front and the balance payable on completion of the project.
Time for payment for the Goods being of the essence, the Price will be payable by the Client on the date/s determined by VP, which may be:
on completion of the Services; or
on or before delivery of the Goods;
by way of instalments/progress payments in accordance with VP’s payment schedule;
for certain approved Clients, due twenty (20) days following the end of the month in which a statement is posted to the Client’s address or address for notices;
the date specified on any invoice or other form as being the date for payment; or
failing any notice to the contrary, the date which is seven (7) days following the date of any invoice given to the Client by VP.
Payment may be made by electronic/on-line banking, credit card (a surcharge per transaction may apply), or by any other method as agreed to between the Client and VP.
VP may in its discretion allocate any payment received from the Client towards any invoice that VP determines and may do so at the time of receipt or at any time afterwards. On any default by the Client VP may re-allocate any payments previously received and allocated. In the absence of any payment allocation by VP, payment will be deemed to be allocated in such manner as preserves the maximum value of VP’s Purchase Money Security Interest (as defined in the PPSA) in the Goods.
The Client shall not be entitled to set off against, or deduct from the Price, any sums owed or claimed to be owed to the Client by VP nor to withhold payment of any invoice because part of that invoice is in dispute.
Unless otherwise stated the Price does not include GST. In addition to the Price, the Client must pay to VP an amount equal to any GST VP must pay for any supply by VP under this or any other contract for the sale of the Goods. The Client must pay GST, without deduction or set off of any other amounts, at the same time and on the same basis as the Client pays the Price. In addition, the Client must pay any other taxes and duties that may be applicable in addition to the Price except where they are expressly included in the Price.
Delivery
Delivery (“Delivery”) of the Goods is taken to occur at the time that:
the Client or the Client’s nominated carrier takes possession of the Goods at VP’s address; or
VP (or VP’s nominated carrier) delivers the Goods to the Client’s nominated address even if the Client is not present at the address.
At VP’s sole discretion the cost of Delivery is in addition to the Price.
VP may deliver the Goods in separate instalments. Each separate instalment shall be invoiced and paid in accordance with the provisions in these terms and conditions.
Any time specified by VP for Delivery of the Goods is an estimate only. The Client must take Delivery by receipt or collection of the Goods whenever they are tendered for Delivery. VP will not be liable for any loss or damage incurred by the Client as a result of Delivery being late. In the event that the Client is unable to take Delivery of the Goods as arranged then VP shall be entitled to charge a reasonable fee for redelivery and/or storage.
In the event the Services have commenced, (including, but not limited to, VP’s plant is set up to print or preparation of the Goods has started, etc.) and then the Client requests to halt the Services and/or causes a delay in the continuation of the Services, then VP reserves the right to charge the Client additionaly for such delays in accordance with clause 2.
Risk
Risk of damage to or loss of the Goods passes to the Client on Delivery and the Client must insure the Goods on or before Delivery.
If any of the Goods are damaged or destroyed following Delivery but prior to ownership passing to the Client, VP is entitled to receive all insurance proceeds payable for the Goods. The production of these terms and conditions by VP is sufficient evidence of VP’s rights to receive the insurance proceeds without the need for any person dealing with VP to make further enquiries.
If the Client requests VP to leave Goods outside VP’s premises for collection or to deliver the Goods to an unattended location then such Goods shall be left at the Client’s sole risk.
When quotations are based on specifications, roughs, layouts, samples or dummies or printed, typewritten or other good copy, any extra work or cost caused by any variation by the Client of his original instructions or by the manuscript copy being, in VP’s opinion, poorly prepared or by the Client’s requirements being different from those originally submitted or described may be charged to the Client and shown as extras on the invoice.
All work carried out whether experimentally or otherwise at the Client’s request will be charged to the Client.
Any tabulated work and/or foreign language included in the job but not contained in the manuscript originally submitted for the purpose of estimating may be charged to the Client and shown as extras on the invoice.
Unless otherwise agreed, the Client shall bear the cost of fonts, colour proofs, or artwork, specially bought at the Clients request for the job.
Where the performance of any contract with the Client requires VP to obtain materials or services from a third party, the Contract between VP and the Client shall incorporate and shall be subject to the conditions of supply of such materials and services to VP, and the Client shall be liable for the cost in full including VP’s margin of such materials or services.
VP is under no obligation to provide samples of Goods ordered other than by virtual (computerised) sample. Whilst every effort will be taken by VP to match virtual colours with physical colours, VP will take no responsibility for any variation between virtual sale samples and either the virtual sale sample displayed on the Client’s computer and/or the final product. Should a physical sample be required, this will be provided on request by the Client, and will be charged for as an extra including return freight, the charge will be contra against final invoice.
VP shall not be held liable for inks wearing off through general wear and tear (including but not limited to a low resolution file provided by the Client for use in the product etc.)
VP recommends that photographic and logo images provided for the Services are a minimum of 300dpi.
Accuracy of Client’s Plans
The plans, specifications (including CAD plans) and other information provided by the Client to VP are accurate. The Client acknowledges and agrees that in the event that any plans, specifications (including CAD plans) or information provided by the Client is inaccurate:
VP accepts no responsibility or liability for any loss, damages, or costs however resulting from these inaccurate plans, specifications or other information;
VP is entitled to suspend or terminate the supply of Goods or Services to the Client if there is a material change to the scope of Services as a result of inaccurate plans, specifications or other information;
VP will not be liable to the Client for any loss or damage the Client suffers because VP has exercised its rights under this clause.
Proofs and Prototype Samples
Where printed proofs or prototypes are required, these will be included in the Price and shall be provided as either a digital proof or a physical prototype. Any additional prototype samples will be subject to an extra cost and will be charged in accordance with clause 2.
Where printing in four (4) colour process, the final result may vary from the digitally printed proof due to the difference in the two print processes. The digitally printed proof should only be relied upon to show that all elements of the design are included in the final pdf and that all content is correct.
The Client acknowledges and agrees that where VP is requested to create a new product and carry out necessary testing, then all associated costs over and above any agreed unit Price shall be borne by the Client and invoiced as an extra in accordance with clause 2.
VP shall be under no liability whatever to the Client for any variation (beyond the reasonable control of VP) in colours between the approved prototype and the finished Goods.
Printing includes all processes involved in re-producing an image from electronic file onto any item.
Whilst every care is taken by VP to carry out the instructions of the Client, it is the Clients responsibility to undertake a final proof reading of the Goods. VP shall be under no liability whatever for any errors not corrected by the Client in the final proof reading. Should the Clients alterations require additional proofs this shall be invoiced as an extra.
While every effort will be taken by VP to match PMS colours, VP will take no responsibility for any variation due to substrates, half tones and/or detailed graphics between sale samples (including but not limited to virtual or physical samples) and the final product.
Client’s Property and Material Supplied by Client
Where the Client supplies materials, adequate quantities shall be supplied to cover spoilage. Sheets and other materials shall not be counted or checked when received unless requested by the Client in writing.

Trusts
If the Client at any time upon or subsequent to entering in to the Contract is acting in the capacity of trustee of any trust (“Trust”) then whether or not VP may have notice of the Trust, the Client covenants with VP as follows:
the Contract extends to all rights of indemnity which the Client now or subsequently may have against the Trust and the trust fund;
the Client has full and complete power and authority under the Trust to enter into the Contract and the provisions of the Trust do not purport to exclude or take away the right of indemnity of the Client against the Trust or the trust fund. The Client will not release the right of indemnity or commit any breach of trust or be a party to any other action which might prejudice that right of indemnity;
the Client will not without consent in writing of VP (VP will not unreasonably withhold consent), cause, permit, or suffer to happen any of the following events:
the removal, replacement or retirement of the Client as trustee of the Trust;
any alteration to or variation of the terms of the Trust;
any advancement or distribution of capital of the Trust; or
any resettlement of the trust property.
General
The failure by either party to enforce any provision of these terms and conditions shall not be treated as a waiver of that provision, nor shall it affect that party’s right to subsequently enforce that provision. If any provision of these terms and conditions shall be invalid, void, illegal or unenforceable the validity, existence, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall not be affected, prejudiced or impaired.
These terms and conditions and any contract to which they apply shall be governed by the laws of New Zealand and are subject to the jurisdiction of the courts of Waikato, New Zealand.
VP shall be under no liability whatsoever to the Client for any indirect and/or consequential loss and/or expense (including loss of profit) suffered by the Client arising out of a breach by VP of these terms and conditions (alternatively VP’s liability shall be limited to damages which under no circumstances shall exceed the Price of the Goods).
VP may licence and/or assign all or any part of its rights and/or obligations under this Contract without the Client’s consent.
The Client cannot licence or assign without the written approval of VP.
VP may elect to subcontract out any part of the Services but shall not be relieved from any liability or obligation under this Contract by so doing. Furthermore, the Client agrees and understands that they have no authority to give any instruction to any of VP’s sub-contractors without the authority of VP.
The Client agrees that VP may amend their general terms and conditions for subsequent future contracts with the Client by disclosing such to the Client in writing. These changes shall be deemed to take effect from the date on which the Client accepts such changes, or otherwise at such time as the Client makes a further request for VP to provide Goods to the Client.
Neither party shall be liable for any default due to any act of God, war, terrorism, strike, lock-out, industrial action, fire, flood, storm or other event beyond the reasonable control of either party.
Both parties warrant that they have the power to enter into this Contract and have obtained all necessary authorisations to allow them to do so, they are not insolvent and that this Contract creates binding and valid legal obligations on them.
