A printing company may charge for cancellation of a placed order. The fee charged usually depends on the stage in production that the order has reached.
Printers require compensation for all incurred cost and related obligations. The incurred costs extend from the labor needed to process the order when it was placed through all subsequent production processes that have occurred. The further along in the production process, the higher the cancellation fee is. The related obligations are additional charges including any restocking fees for materials ordered to produce the job and any subcontracted services required to fulfill the job specifications.
