THE SMALL PRINT

terms and conditions

When placing your order you are agreeing to the following terms and conditions. Throughout the terms and conditions ‘you’ and ‘your’ refers to the customer, ‘we’ and ‘our’ refers to Calendar Paper Co.  

ORDERING & QUOTES

  1. When placing an order a deposit is due upfront to complete your booking, unless stated otherwise.

  2. The remaining balance is required before your order is sent to print, unless stated otherwise. If your order has two print bookings (i.e. saves the dates and invitations), the balance payment will be split into two payments of printing costs.

  3. For individual bespoke artwork or digital orders we require the full balance upfront. If we are printing the artwork (rather than delivering a digital file) you will receive a digital proof via email before we send to print.

  4. Quotes are valid for 30 days. This is due to possible changes in suppliers' costs. Upon booking the printing costs will be estimated and final printing costs will be confirmed during the design process. In most cases the estimated cost will be the final printing cost however please take into account that if you are booking far in advance printing costs may rise by up to 5%.

  5. We have a minimum order quantity for personalised items (excluding some on-the-day stationery) of 30-50 items depending on printing technique. Minimum quantities are set in place due to printer set-up costs.

  6. Upon ordering you will be booked into our design and production calendar. If you miss your booking, or do not supply the information for the required date, your design and production space is no longer guaranteed and turnaround time may take longer than quoted.

  7. If you require more of the same stationery items because you have ordered too little, minimum order quantities will still apply. With invitations we highly recommend ordering 10% extra in case of unforeseen changes to the guest list.

 

PAYMENT & CONTRACT

  1. Payment of the deposit non-refundable as it used to reserve the design and production space for your order. The balance payment is also non-refundable as it is used for the production costs to create your personalised items. Payment for bespoke artwork or digital files is non-refundable as it covers the time spent creating the artwork. 

  2. Your booking will not be finalised until we receive your deposit payment. Please complete these in a timely fashion so that we can complete your booking for your chosen date. 

  3. Your invoice will clearly show the estimated printing costs for your order; any increase in costs, extra items or extra artwork charges that arise throughout the process will be added to your balance invoice. You will be advised of these in advance.

 

DIGITAL PROOFS & AMENDMENTS

  1. All proofs will be provided in digital form.

  2. You will be sent up to three rounds of digital proofs . After this any further proofs will be charged at our hourly rate of £30 p/h. Please remember to give your full feedback and amendments at each stage of digital proofs. 

  3. Please note, if you have requested illustrations as part of your order, these will only be subject to minor amendments during the proof process.

  4. You are solely responsible for checking all the details of the digital proofs, once approval has been given we are not liable for any errors. Once the order has been sent to print no more changes can be made.

  5. If an error has been made on your part and you realise once you have received your stationery, we will make every effort to reprint for you at the same price but please be aware minimum quantity requirements may cause a price increase.

  6. Time is of the essence during the design process, please respond to proofs within the timeframes given.

 

PRODUCTION & PRINTING PROCESSES

  1. Orders will not be sent to print until the proof has been approved and the balance has been paid. 

  2. If there are any delays due to our suppliers we will inform you immediately.

  3. Whilst we do our best to centralise all designs, all printers experience a small percentage of movement during printing.

  4. We use the highest quality professional digital printers however due to the nature of digital printing, colours may differ slightly when reprinted. We cannot guarantee a 100% exact colour match if you require a reprint or have stationery printed at different times.

  5. We do our best to represent the colours as close to true life as possible however colours can appear to look different from screen to screen, and from screen to paper.

  6. There may be slight variations between pieces due to the handmade nature of the items. Paper and card may occasionally have tiny imperfections; these are natural flaws and are unavoidable.

  7. Wax seals, silk ribbons and tassels are made to order and shades may vary ever so slightly from batch to batch. 

  8. Please note there is a 3mm tolerance for card sizes.

  9. Due to the handmade nature of items we cannot guarantee a 100% exact colour match to samples.

  10. From time to time our suppliers discontinue products; if this occurs we will inform you immediately and offer suitable alternatives.
