All sales are final, unless otherwise noted. No refunds are given once Business Now Services Inc. begins working on your order, which means Business Now Services Inc. has received your necessary materials (i.e. digital files and payment) and started work on your job (i.e. your job is in production).

All purchase requests must be submitted with an approved payment method unless otherwise expressly stated. Approved payment methods include any of the following methods:

Our Sales Tax Policy
Business Now Services Inc., is required to collect and remit sales tax in all Canadian jurisdictions that administer such tax.
Business Now Services Inc. will reproduce colour from submitted print-ready files as closely as possible but cannot exactly match colour and density because of limitations in the printing process, as well as neighbouring image ink requirements.
Please note that we accept no responsibility for colour variations between submitted print-ready images and the actual artwork or product they represent.
You are responsible for the accuracy of your print-ready artwork files, and you must proofread all files carefully before submitting to Business Now Services Inc. As postal regulations are subject to change, you are also responsible for complying with current mailing restrictions for your layouts. Check with your local Post Office for current guidelines and restrictions. Please use our file preparation guidelines and product templates to assist you in creating print-ready files. We also offer design services for a fee.
You certify that you have the right to use the image(s) in your artwork files. DO NOT send any “one-of-kind” transparencies, prints or artwork. Although we take every precaution to safeguard your materials, we are NOT responsible for loss or damage of images or artwork.
Under these Terms and Conditions, you agree that you will NOT upload any artwork files consisting of the following material: any material that could give rise to any civil or criminal liability under applicable law; and any material that could infringe rights of privacy, publicity, copyrights or other intellectual property rights without the permission of the owner of these rights and the persons who are shown in the material if applicable. Business Now Services Inc. is unable to print sexually explicit materials, including photographic genitals, violently explicit materials, and speech promoting hate or violence.
Printing Turnaround Time
Printing turnaround time begins once your order has been placed and your print-ready files have been uploaded to your account, attached to your printing job, and approved for printing. Please note that if we are unable to print your files because they do not conform to our file requirements, your job status will return to “Need Artwork” and your printing turnaround time will be reset.
For printing jobs that do not have complete digital source files provided, printing turnaround begins when we have your print-ready file(s) for your print job, not from when the order is first submitted.
If your job or proof is approved by 6:00 p.m. PST (9:00 p.m. EST), printing turnaround time begins that business day. For example, a job for three-day printing turnaround that you approved by 1:00 p.m. PST on Tuesday will be shipped out to you by end of business Friday. Please note that Business Now Services Inc. office is closed Sundays and all Statutory Holidays for British Columbia. As a result, these days are not considered when calculating printing turnaround time. In addition, printing turnaround time does not include shipping transit time, and you should allow additional business days for delivery based on the shipping method you selected.
Shipping and Arrival Times
Shipping transit times vary, and Business Now Services Inc. assumes no responsibility for delays caused by shipping carriers, weather or any damages resulting from the failure to receive a job on time. Your order may arrive late due to unforeseen delays in delivery service, the breakdown of equipment, illness, etc. Business Now Services Inc. is not responsible for delays due to improperly prepared files.
Target arrival dates are calculated by adding the printing turnaround time to the shipping transit time. For example, a product with a printing turnaround time of two business days and a shipping method of 2nd Day Air would have a target arrival date four business days after your files have been received by us. The cut off time for accepting files is 6:00 p.m. PST (9:00 p.m. EST). If your files are in by that time, we will commit to printing and shipping your product within the selected timeframe.
You agree that shipping terms for all Business Now Services Inc. products are shipped “Freight On Board Shipping Point” or “F.O.B. Shipping Point” – title and risk of loss transfers to you at time of shipment or pickup.
Pick-up orders will be held for 30 days at our facility. After 30 days, we will recycle your order.
