Terms & Conditions
To receive an estimate for letterpress wedding invitation and stationery orders please contact us here. Don’t forget to read about our process and the options available to you. If you have additional questions with an order, please contact us directly by email or phone: +612 8006 8878. We are more than happy to help.
We will send you an invoice for payment via email. Please review your invoice carefully to ensure all of the details of your order are correct. Any options or items not included in the invoice will not be included with your order.
For all Collection and custom design printing orders we supply the invoice in a minimum of two parts, a 40% design deposit and the remaining balance prior to commencement of printing. Exceptions to this payment plan may occur if you have a extensive additional ceremony and reception items that are not required until your wedding day.
For all supplied design printing we require 100% payment prior to printing.
No design or printing will commence until all issued invoices are paid.
For custom designed and Collection orders, we do not put a limit on the number of proofs allowable. We send digital PDF proofs of your design by email for your approval. For a smooth and simple process it is preferable to receive all of your edits in a single email per proof. Please note that each computer screen or printer cannot give a 100% accurate representations of Pantone colours, or our selection of colours, compared to the final colour when letterpress printed.
Proofs are extremely important as the final approved proof is used to generate your plates, these cannot be altered once they have been cast.
By approving the final proof you agree that all text and design are correct as shown with no further changes necessary. Please proofread slowly and very carefully, check through every little detail one last time to be sure it is all 100% correct. We strongly suggest you get a friend or family member to play proof reader for you, you might be surprised what you didn’t see. Once you approve your proofs, there can be no additional edits for spelling, punctuation or content without incurring additional costs for new plates, or if necessary, reprinting.
Any edits or changes to your order (including embellishments and quantities) can be made any time prior to the final proof approval. In the case of an order cancellation, Paper Elephant reserves the right to retain a minimum cancellation fee of 20% of the deposit total if the order is cancelled prior to any design development and approval. If an order is cancelled after designs have been supplied, Paper Elephant reserves the right to retain all monies paid so far.
Please note that colours can vary slightly between individual pieces (such as invitation printing and RSVP printing), it is recommended to order all of your pieces together (pre-wedding and ceremony/reception pieces) whenever possible. Colours may also differ between letterpress printed and flat printed pieces. If using your own home printer to create your own DIY pieces the colours will most likely differ greatly, as we run press checks with our flat printed pieces to ensure the closest possible colours.
A total of 5-6 weeks is recommended for a custom design suite to be sure you aren’t rushed with your decisions. A Collection based design usually only requires 2-3 weeks. The printing process for either, or supplied designs, generally takes 4-5 weeks.
All packages will be sent by a specified delivery date. Delivery timeframes for international orders may vary, please enquire about an estimated delivery timeframe. Rush orders may be available depending on our studio schedule – please contact us for details, availability and any additional fees.
All orders will be issued with a tracking number and require a signature on delivery. Please be sure you are delivering your order to a destination where someone can sign for it, if nobody is available the order will need to be picked up from your nearest Post Office with the notification that they will leave for you and identification. You will be able to access the tracking number provided to you once your order has shipped enabling you to monitor the progress of your delivery.
We strive to achieve the highest quality in our printing, and see our products, customer service, printing and delivery as above average. However, should you be dissatisfied with our service please contact us to discuss your concerns. If you have already received your order and are not satisfied, please contact us immediately, return your order to us in its original condition and we can take matters from there. However, please note that any errors found in your prints that were present in the final proof approved by you cannot be considered for refund or credit. Refunds are not available on design services for any reason. Please remember that letterpress printing is a craft where slight variations and irregularities are part of it’s charm. Our hand mixed inks can vary slightly from batch to batch, making a 100% colour match from run to run unlikely.
