Vinyl Impression aims to complete all projects in 7 working days (Monday to Friday inclusive), unless otherwise stated by a member of our team.

APPLICATION SURFACE: STRUCTURAL
While Vinyl Impression Ltd will advise on the most suitable products for each application surface, it remains the customer’s sole responsibility to check the application surface and ensure its structural suitability before placing an order. Any damage caused to an application surface (e.g. glass partitions, windows, walls (all construction types) etc.) remain the sole responsibility of the customer even if damage is caused after interaction with any product or service supplied by Vinyl Impression Ltd.
APPLICATION SURFACE: SITE PREPARATION
Surfaces that require preparation include textured walls, fragile structures or surfaces that have broken down over time including but not limited to poor paint works and finishes. All painted surfaces must be left undisturbed to fully cure for a minimum of 4-6 weeks unless otherwise stated, as different material will vary.
APPLICATION SURFACE: UNUSABLE SURFACES
An unusable surface is defined as those which are heavily textured, fragile or show signs of excessive expansion and/or shrinkage, or those which alter due to extreme temperature changes from the physical environment including air-conditioning and heating systems. This list is not exhaustive. If you wish to place a graphic near a heat or cooling source, you must inform Vinyl Impression at the first point of contact before quotation.
Whilst we use industry recognised removable material, Vinyl Impression do not accept liability for damage caused to the application surface. For more information contact our sales team at email@example.com
REMOVAL OF GRAPHIC/S
We have different materials that will remove with different levels of damage to the surface. Please note, we cannot guarantee that the surface underneath will not be damaged. Removable materials does not guarantee no damage. We recommend for adhesive vinyls using a heat gun or hair dryer to gently soften the glue to help removal but this also does not guarantee no damage.
Whilst we use industry recognised floor graphic materials that are specifically designed for purpose, Vinyl impression accepts no liability for trips, slips and falls that occur as a result of their use. It is the consumer’s sole responsibility to account for all graphics, specifically floor stickers, in health and safety risk assessments. Customers are also responsible for monitoring the health of the graphics after they have been applied taking all steps to ensure safety remains paramount.
INSTALLATION: OUR TEAM
The price of installation is calculated based on an approximate duration of a job and can increase onsite if a customer makes any alterations to the agreed visuals. Any alterations that increase the installation length will be charged at £40.00 an hour ex VAT per installer.
Installation generally will not be confirmed until artwork has been agreed. However, installation can be ‘pencilled in’ on agreement that artwork will be submitted 7 full working days before the proposed date. Vinyl Impression reserves the right to cancel if the artwork is not submitted by the requested date, irrespective of monies paid.
The customer remains solely responsible for the preparation of the application surface and its easy accessibility before the installation crews arrive on site. If the standards are not met the installation team have the right to leave the site immediately and the customer will be charged in full for that installation. Any subsequent bookings will be chargeable in addition to any fees already paid to date. The decision on whether a surface is suitable for installation rests solely with our lead installers. However, if the customer insists on installation they can sign ‘the waiver’ that states they lose all rights to claim against any and all damage, peeling and bubbling or visible defects to the graphic caused by the surface. This list is not exhaustive; please ask for the waiver for more information.
INSTALLATION: SELF INSTALLATION / THIRD PARTY
Vinyl Impression accepts no liability for damage caused by installation by self-installation or by any third party not authorised by Vinyl Impression including but not limited to painters and decorators, other graphic installers and self-application. Self-application is defined as installation by anyone associated with the end user and/or purchase agent who is not a professional authorised by Vinyl Impression Ltd. Third party installation should not be booked before the products supplied by Vinyl Impression are delivered and checked thoroughly by the purchaser. Vinyl Impression is not liable to pay any fees associated with a third-party installer if the graphics are delivered later than estimated or in some way faulty.
REMOVAL: OUR TEAM
Vinyl Impression offer a removal service of graphics however once again, we cannot guarantee the surface condition. We do not take any responsibility for any damage caused during the removal process and it would be the clients responsibility to repair the surface if any damage occurs during removal. Once repaired, any new graphics can be applied however this is very unlikely to happen in the same visit.
Vinyl Impression does not take any responsibility for the damage caused and it is the clients responsibility to repair the surface. This is in any case, even if there is a problem with the print that is not the clients fault. We are not responsible for the surface.
It is up to the discretion of Vinyl Impression as to whether they decided to conduct any remedial works on site. This may include such works as priming the surface or silicone / filling areas where necessary, however this does not guarantee that the material will not lift or peel.
We will always do our best to ensure materials don't lift off or peel, but wall surfaces and paints are so varied, we can't take responsibility for this, and it is our discretion to choose what to do.
REMOVAL: SELF REMOVAL / THIRD PARTY
Vinyl Impression cannot guarantee the final surface finish once a vinyl has been removed. We do offer different materials that will remove with different levels of damage to the surface. Removable materials do not guarantee no damage. We recommend for removal of adhesive vinyl using a heat gun or hair dryer to gently soften the glue to help removal however this also does not guarantee no damage.
Please note, in some instances glue may be left on the surface. This is the clients responsibility to move and can be done with a hair dryer and a cloth. Failing this, sanding may be required to smooth out the surface.
Vector artwork must be submitted in an original file, which must be saved as an .ai, .eps or .pdf file. All files need to be submitted ready to print unless an artwork service is included in the order or otherwise stated. Any amendments needed beyond that which is normally expected will be chargeable at £50 per hour per artworker.
All images for wall murals must be submitted as high-resolution jpeg or tiff files (at least 150dpi at 100% or 300dpi at 50%). Whilst Vinyl Impression will endeavour to advise on the most suitable images for purpose, however all images will lose a degree of quality when scaled up to the size of a wall. Vinyl Impression will print a sample for all custom wall murals as standard to check the quality. In instances where quality falls below the expected standard at a viewing distance of a meter, Vinyl Impression will send the customer the printed sample to decide if they wish to proceed with the selected image.
If deadlines of artwork submission are communicated, the purchaser and all agents associated with them must adhere to the timeline. If this timeline is negatively altered due to missing submissions, Vinyl Impression holds the right to change the delivery date or delay or cancel installation, irrespective of the graphics purpose including if they are needed for specific date or event.
ARTWORK DIGITAL FILE OWNERSHIP
All edited and custom design files remain the sole property of Vinyl Impression even if they contain elements of predesigned work. In this instance, edited artwork is any files that are adapted or altered from their original form beyond that which is expected with print and or cut preparation.
Electronic copies of files can be made available for a fee that is determined by the Vinyl Impression sales team at the point of request.
By placing the order, the client declares they hold the right and correct licences to reproduce all text, images, artwork and digital files supplied. The client assumes absolute liability for any resulting violation of copyright in any action brought by a third party.
