Finishes and components on Meet PAT products are updated periodically to respond to the demands and changing preferences of our customers. As a result we may discontinue some options before expiration of the Applicable Warranty Period and do not guarantee that any replacement product or part will be identical to, or match the finish of, the original.

The production of printed materials involves many subjective decisions of matters including but not limited to colour, density, fit and finish. Where the Purchaser does not personally attend and review all proof and print production stages the decisions that Company makes will be held to be the Purchaser’s decisions. The Purchaser will indemnify and hold Company blameless should any aspect of the printed material be considered cause for rejection of the material by the Purchaser, the Purchaser’s agents or any other party. While Company will endeavour to ensure information included in printed materials is correct the Purchaser as the final responsibility for proof reading all materials and ensuring that there are no errors or omissions. Where estimates refer to delivered quantities of items such as but not limited to printed matter an acceptable variation of ±10% will apply.

Natural Materials
Any imperfections in finishes or in natural materials used should not be considered as faults but a typical characteristic of these crafted products.
