TIMING OF DESIGN TO PRINT (usually TWO to THREE weeks)
Once we have your $ and your words/design ideas/photos (everything required) we will begin your artwork.
The TWO to THREE weeks start from when we get everything – Deposit / your wording (emailed only) / photos (approx. 500kb per photo or image) / design ideas (from the internet) etc…
Delays can happen if you make many changes, or take days to proof the artwork, also allow extra time if printed proofs are being freighted to you either via courier or nz post.
Please do not be offended if you need them sooner than THREE weeks, and we say it is not possible.
As it would not be fair to bump our current clients to fit you in – please come in or email your fully prepared information, wording, photos, ideas.
Wording MUST be EMAILED, this eliminates spelling or typing errors. (also we do not have time to sit and retype your wording, or to try to decipher your writing)
If you change your whole design concept after we have designed your first concept you will be charged for a whole new design.
Once we have your deposit and your words we will begin your artwork.
We will email through a proof to you usually within 5 to 10 business days.
Any changes can be made, you have up to 3 complimentary proofs that will be emailed to you.
If after these 3 proofs you require any further changes these will be charged at $15 per Proof.
Please check this thoroughly Spelling, Names, Dates, Contact Details. etc…
We cannot be held responsible for any errors or omissions detected after approval for print.
Once you are happy with the proof, we like you to see a Printed Proof, you can pick this up, or we can freight this to you for $5 (usually ready within 3 business days). (RD add $4.70)
If you require changes AFTER the sample has been made, and/or a new sample is required to be viewed, you will be required to pay an additional charge of $15.
Once this has your final approval, please email to confirm, and we will then go to print.
If you would like the proof on multiple stocks, the first is FREE, then $6 per different stock. (* more complex – more $ each)
If you change your whole design, you will be charged a new design fee.
Invites are usually printed within 5 business days of signed off approval. This may be longer for large quantities or more
complex invitations. Printing is all done on site (apart from some foiling/letterpress/some die-cutting, we have commercial
