Customized Text Fee - $120
This nonrefundable print setup fee will cover multiple draft copies of your custom text or art placement on one surface of our many custom products. Because this is an invitation package, proofs for every component is included in this fee.

Once you submit your text a proof will be generated within 72 hours for review. You will be asked to review and approve your proof prior to printing. Here's an example of our proofing pages: Your Proofs. Your order will ship one week from the day you approve your proofs.

Included in this $120 purchase is one print round of proofs which will be printed on a similar paper surface to your custom product purchase, then scanned and provided electronically in either .JPG (image) or .PDF (image) form. Should you require changes after seeing your initial proof, a second proof will be provided and covered by this $120 fee. After the second proof additional changes can be viewed for $15 per iteration.
Once your proof has been approved no further changes are possible.
