Addendum - Archival Policy

Archival Procedures

When IMAGE ZONE provides production on your ORDER, you can normally expect :

* A backup on hard drive for approx 10 days

* A file retreival CDR copy made for you if requested for .25 per megabyte or $25 minimum (within 10 days of completion)

* Please note that after 10 days there is a chance that your files are no longer available in any digital form

* We do not guarantee you will be able to open or use the files without having compatible software. Image Zone uses high quality industry standard software which may not be on your system.

It is always our intention to be of service to you. It is in your BEST interest to have your own copy since hard drives can fail or be hit by power surges or damaged in such as way as to make retrieval of your data impossible.

Keeping a backup of the computer files is the equivalent of having a safety DAT or additional CDR of your final master. A proactive stance will always be your best protection.

If you desire to have a back up of your files and the project is more than 10 days completed and we have it on our system, there will be a .35 per megabyte or $75 minimum archive retrieval fee in addition to the fee to burn the CDR. Please note again that it is likely that after 10 days we will not have your files in any digital form and will not be able to complete your request.

If you need our production files converted to a file format you can use, we can convert files for $15 per file. (some files are not able to convert depending on the program we use, please specify at time of order if you are uses the files with a specific program)

Computer alterations requested after project has been completed.

* For those who have computer backup - minor changes run between $25-50. If changes are extensive and will require a proofing stage, a quote will be provided.

* For those who did not obtain a CDR backup, there is a .25 per megabyte or $25 minimum archive retrieval fee in order to locate computer files if they are still available plus one (1) hour minimum to make computer changes. This is subject to review once the specific changes are specified.

Leftover print, films or materials

Please note that all materials left at IMAGE ZONE are stored free of charge. They remain the customer's property and are left at the customer's risk. Under normal conditions you can reasonably expect that your materials will be stored and available for up to one year from your initial order. You will be notified if and when we are cleaning out files. After one year, should any items be missing or damaged regardless of it being at IMAGE ZONE, it is the customer's responsibility to replace when needed . IMAGE ZONE does not have a budget to return customer property. If you wish to have your materials returned after completion of your order, please allow UPS fees to recover your materials.


IMAGE ZONE can never be responsible for originals. i.e. artwork, watercolors, masters, pictures, films of artwork of which you do not have a backup etc. If your project uses these items it will be customer's responsibility to secure these items from IMAGE ZONE either in person or by writing and at customer's expense.

We strive to keep you 100% in the loop when it comes to what we do for you. If you have any questions about any of this information, we welcome the opportunity to talk with you and clarify anything regarding these policies.
