Yes. Floricolor would like to offer you 50% discount in all Sample products. You don't have to worry with what to write our where to put it. When ordering your Sample through FOS 2 (Floricolor Ordering System) you will only have to select the "Sample" option. We will after add to each product a sample stamp. This stamp will say: “Sample. Not for resale, Sample only”. In what concerns Books the Stamp will be printed or engraved on the cover or back cover.

Due to the high volume of orders received on October, November and December Floricolor will not produce any products with sample discount.
The production of sample orders requested during this period (October, November and December) will be paused until January 2nd, 2018 when the production will be resumed.

See the "Sample Policy" on the last pages of our Price List to know which products cannot be ordered with sample discount.

No. You can choose between a wooden box with your logo printed on the top slide with 20 different materials.

07 - What is your turnaround time?
The production time is different for each product and can be consulted on our Price List and web page. To this, you should add the shipping time according to the shipping address. For turnaround time, the date of uploading files is considered as the first business day if the order is placed till 12 am (Portuguese time) between Monday and Friday. Even so, it is necessary that files received are in perfect condition for printing (quantity and measures).

08 - How do I order my Floricolor Albums?
You should create a client’s account which will allow you to use our FOS (FTP) to order and upload your files.

09 - What color profile do you recommend?
sRGB is the best color profile for photographic printing.

10 - Do you color correct my files?
It’s very important to have your monitor color corrected as we print without adjusting your look and style. Every photographer has a slightly different branded look that is unique to their studio. Please ask us for the Calibration Proof and download the file available on the website to adjust your monitor.

11 - How can I get access to pricing information online?
The first thing you need is to register on our website, on Client Registration (upper right corner of the homepage). Upon receipt of your attempt to register, we will validate your registration and send username and password that will allow you to download our Catalogue and Price List. This process takes up to one business day. Unfortunately we do not work with the general public. Only professional photographers will be authorized to access such secured information. How do I update my Client Information? Please send an e-mail to geral@floricolor.pt that someone will contact you as soon as possible.

12 - How can I show your products to my customers?
Our catalogue was made thinking on this issue. You can download it and show it to your customers as it has no prices shown.

13 - Are all of your products made completely in house?
Yes, the only product that is not made by our team is the Bag.

14 - What forms of payment does Floricolor accept?
With the update of FOS to the version 2.0 the payment of all orders is made exclusively online with Credit Card (Mastercard or Visa) or PayPal.

15 - What is the best way to protect my Album?
The most effective way to ensure your albums longevity is to store it away from food and liquids, the direct sun light and far from too warm or to cold and humid places. Every product will have the Instructions for Use with it.

16 - What if my Album arrives to me damaged?
We stand behind our products and hold ourselves to the highest standard of quality. Because of the handcrafted nature of our business, there may be minor variations in material color and construction which are to be considered as the individual personality of your Album. However, any damages or major flaws resulting from shipping or negligence on our part must be photographed and sent to geral@floricolor.pt 24 hours after receiving it so we can correct the situation.

17 - Can I change my Album order after it has been placed?
Due to the custom nature of our products, your order cannot be cancelled once it has been placed. However if you notice that you have made a mistake please contact us immediately through geral@floricolor.pt and we will do all we can to help you.

18 - Do you service international customers?
Absolutely! Although we may have different products, Price List and currency depending on each country, but we can ship anywhere in the world.

19 - Do you have warranty?
All our Albums have lifetime warranty if the instructions of the best way to protect your Album are complied.

20 - From when will my order be validated and am I liable to pay?

After sending the files your order is validated. If you have questions about the price, previously consult our Price List. Any changes or cancellations will only be accepted in writing and immediately after uploading the files, otherwise you will have to bear the costs of the order production process to date of the request for cancellation and/or changes.

21 - For how long will Floricolor keep my order's files stored?
For storage reasons, order's files are automatically eliminated from Floricolor's servers 7 days after the order is complete. For this reason Floricolor is not responsible for returning the files or warrant its reprinting. If you want to receive your order's design you must request it by email to your account manager within the mentioned period.

22 - VIES does not work. What is the problem?
The VIES validation system does not belong to Floricolor and therefore it is not controlled or supervised by us. Here is an explanation provided by the European Commission about the operation of this system:

The Commission´s web site is a real-time system which checks the validity of VAT identification numbers against the databases maintained by Member States. In other words, when you check a number, it is the database of that Member State that is being checked.
Some parts of the system may be unavailable at certain times due to the necessity to back-up the Member States' databases.

This is a known problem, and the Commission is working with Member States to ensure that the length of time that their databases are down for updating is kept to a minimum.

Despite the existence of the limitations mentioned above, the validation of VAT numbers of all customers inside the European Union is legally mandatory. For this reason, we regret that this service may not be available at any time and we ask that you continue to try to place your order.

We would like to remind you that VIES is the only official and legal platform to verify and validate VAT numbers.

23 - How should I number my files to make sure they are printed in the correct order?
If you didn’t use Floriware to design your Album, always name your files with 3 digits (example: 001.jpg, 002.jpg, 003.jpg, 009.jpg, 010.jpg, 011.jpg, …) according to the correct order in which your album should be printed.
