How does Pristine Packaging define a product as defective? Pristine Packaging defines a product as defective if the product has the following: improper construction, cuts or finish, errors in structure, or printing from manufacturing. In the case of paperboard, due to its nature, cracking occurs when creased in printed areas; this is because of over-expansion in such material. We do not classify minor cracking in non-laminated card stock as defective; because it is completely normal for that to happen. Also, cracks bend, or scratches due to mishandling or during shipping are not classified as defective. Pristine Packaging assumes responsibility for all manufacturing errors and will re-produce and re-print at the discretion of Pristine Packaging management. We encourage customers to inform us immediately if there are any defects in the products.
Customers should supply their artworks, designs, and images in CMYK format.

We urge customers to adhere to these specifications, however, if they do not do so then Pristine Packaging is not responsible for any printing errors that might occur as a result of negligence on part of the customer.
