Color differences may occur between the visuals presented on the site and the print received by the customer. Indeed, the images presented on the screen are brighter and more contrasted than the printed images. You must also take into account the settings of your screen which can affect the colorimetry and thus give a rendering that differs from reality. Note, the texture of the paper cannot be contractually restored to the screen. This is why Rue Vendôme cannot be held responsible for the differences observed between the images presented on the site and the print received by the customer. Likewise, Rue Vendôme cannot be held responsible for differences in printing between several orders.
