Colour correction is a subjective subject, AtkinsTechnicolour’s staff are trained in recognising colour deficiencies and making adjustment to bring images to an accepted standard. Every effort must be made by the client to communicate any colour preferences that the client might have. Colour correcting is not a colour matching service. Colour matching will incur a surcharge on both the colour correction plus print cost. It is impossible to get a 100% match between two images, AtkinsTechnicolour will get a reasonable match between prints within the limits of what is possible.
Colour management – AtkinsTechnicolor’s services are ICC compliant. Digital images supplied for printing must have an embedded ICC profile. Any image supplied without an ICC profile will be assumed to exist in an sRGB colour space. All printing devices have a limited colour gamut, as a part of AtkinsTechnicolour’s ICC compliance, we will choose a suitable rendering intent to best translate the clients’ out of gamut colours to the printers gamut, this will result in colours changing, and AtkinsTechnicolour’s priority will be a photographic continuous tone representation of the image and not an individual colour’s accuracy.
All prints are borderless and print sizes specified are approximate and are listed in imperial and metric, sizes are rounded. Where there are no specific instructions cropping will be at AtkinsTechnicolours discretion or full frame will be printed. Prints requiring mounting will require an additional 5mm on all sides greater than the substrate size required.
AtkinsTechnicolour will use its best endeavours to ensure that orders are completed within the advertised service times but will not accept liability for damages or allow cancellation in the event of failure so to do. All service times are based on receipt of material from the client, which are clearly and correctly presented with all working elements required to produce the job. Service times shorter than advertised may be possible, and if required, may incur a surcharge to pay for penalty rate wages.
Every care is taken by AtkinsTechnicolour to safeguard material left by the customer for processing. In the event of any loss or damage to that material in any way whatsoever and for any reason whatsoever (including negligence of AtkinsTechnicolour or breach of copyright) whilst in the custody of AtkinsTechnicolour its agents or subcontractors or whilst in transit back to the customer, such claim must be made within ten days of receipt and AtkinsTechnicolour’s liability shall not exceed AtkinsTechnicolour’s charge for processing the relevant service provided that this limitation of liability does not affect the other rights and remedies in respect of the service or product which the customer has under the Trade Practices Act 1974. There is no guarantee in respect of colour variation in the processed film or prints. All special instructions to AtkinsTechnicolour will not be binding on AtkinsTechnicolour unless confirmed in writing in a clear and precise manner.
