Deposit to begin / Payment in full (for specialty)

If you like our designs and/or our custom style sounds like a good fit, we'll move forward with your deposit of 50%. Deposits are non-refundable once we begin working. We'll collect all your information in this stage or you can email us your information. We'll order sample materials so that we can prepare and be ready for your hard copy proof.

Proofing Stage

For ready-made designs, first proofs will be sent within 3 days (or sooner). For custom designs, please allow up to 2 weeks for first proofs. All digital proofs/options (round 1) are emailed. Reviewing and feedback is exchanged and up to two additional rounds of proofs are sent. You are entitled to one complimentary hard copy proof which is mailed (USPS Priority) or you can swing by to view in person. You may choose to skip this step and we'll proceed to finalization with approval.
