Pricing for Custom Gobos
Prices are in US Dollars if not stated otherwise. Rush fees may be applied according to the selected production speed. There is no extra fee for artwork processing if the artwork is provided in the required format. Please refer to our Artwork Guidelines
. If the artwork provided to us requires extensive reworking, we may have to charge an extra fee. In this case we will ask for your permission before proceeding.
Turnaround Time = Production Time + Shipping Time.
Most gobos can be rush produced as fast as Same Day, for the regular production times; see the custom gobo order options on our website for the desired gobo type. If a proof is required, then the Turnaround Time starts after the proof is approved. We cannot be held responsible for delays caused by conditions beyond our immediate control.
When a proof is required, please allow extra time for proof production and approval. Once the proof is approved, you can expect a standard Turnaround Time.
Proof Cancellation/Artwork Fee
Proofs typically do not receive a fee unless the following occurs:
After the first proof, one more proof or revision is allowed at no charge. On the third revision and beyond, Studio Time artwork charges will apply which is $25.00 for each change.
*This does not apply if we have made an error, only if there is a desired artistic change.
Cancellation of proof will incur a $25.00 studio time charge.
Cool ink/Cool ink HD proof which is $25.00.
Same day/Rush proofs incur the normal charge that the specific gobo would be.
We hold proofs for up to 30 days. After that we will reach out and check on the status of the proof. At that time, we will either need to produce or cancel. If cancelled, it will incur the $25.00 studio time charge.
