Class Code 4299 Rates & Quotes


Class code 4299 is used for employees that engage in commercial printing, which includes incidental assembling, stapling, or binding or circulars, pamphlets, or catalogues. Printing operations covered by this classification include, but are not limited to, hand typesetting, press operations, printing or embossing by machine from engraved plates, and photocomposition methods. This code should not be confused with a stationery manufacturer, however, as a stationery manufacturer creates goods generally used for writing purposes, while a print shop prints more varied products for the general public. Class code 4299 also applies to insureds engaged solely in electrotyping and the production of electrotype plates, those that manufacture or assemble rubber or plastic stamps, and the manufacturing of playing cards.

Exclusions to this code would be those employees working for businesses that engage in the following: bookbinding, engraving, newspaper publishing, photoengraving, quick print shops, or reproductions by means of offset-type duplicators on paper sizes smaller than 18 x 23 inches.

Codes 4299 and 9501 shall not apply to the same location. Insureds who are engaged in manufacturing operations involving computerized plastic or vinyl signs may not combine these Codes. Code 4299 should be applied when an insured does not engage in the manufacture or preparation of mounting surfaces. The sign manufacturers under consideration will typically use plastic or vinyl materials, a desktop computer attached to an electronic scoring device, and small knives. Some may also use drills and circular or jig saws to fabricate boards upon which the lettering is mounted. The computer is used in conjunction with the electronic scoring apparatus to die-cut the plastic or vinyl into letters or other graphic shapes. The small knives are used to hand-lift the cut letters or graphics from the vinyl sheets. The letters or graphics are then affixed to various mounting materials, which may include wood or plastic. These mounting materials may be purchased precut from others or fabricated by the insured. Insureds that engage in the above operations and do manufacture or prepare mounting surfaces are excluded.
