Howden’s Print Specific Commercial Combined Policy
You probably know this, but there are numerous commercial insurance policies out there. The common issue is that these “commercial combined policies” tend to be very generalist “jack of all trades, master of none” type policies. This is especially true for the print industry, which hasn’t before had an insurance solution that meets its individual requirements.
We, as the only approved broker for print by the British printing industry federation, can offer you the print specific commercial combined policy, the only insurance designed exclusively for the print industry.
Under this policy, every part of a printer’s story is covered, offering solid protection to you, your team, stock, and premises. Take a look below at what’s included under our print specific commercial combined policy:
- Operational error
Covering mistakes or errors made in the printing, including typos, incorrect colours or images, or misalignments in the printing process.
Damage to Customers Vehicles, provided under the Customer Vehicles Extension.
- Non-machinery breakdown insurance
Covers losses or damages to equipment or machinery that occur due to non-mechanical reasons, such as power surges, electrical failures, and human error.
- Bookbinders’ public liability
Covers printers or bookbinders where documents have been incorrectly trimmed, palletised, or bound and couldn’t be distributed.
- Sub-contractors’ stock
Policy cover means if any sub-contractors’ stock is damaged, customers get repaid, and the premises owner doesn’t personally foot the bill.
- Inching and crawling
Personal accident cover for those injured whilst working on machinery.
- Libel and slander public liability
If a printer makes a misprint and the result is something that could be considered either libellous or slanderous, that’s covered, too.
- Financial loss public liability
If a piece of branded material has an error but is distributed, this is much-needed protection against the cost of a reprint or lost business.
- Breach of copyright/confidentiality public liability
Printed something without the appropriate permissions? This is also part of the policy and cover.
The print specific commercial combined policy is much more than a product. We can say that because the policy paperwork is backed up and supported by a team of expert brokers who understand printing from the first page to last.
