Custom Proofing Costs

Setup fees for custom work

When we print your initials on a tag, add custom artwork to your invitation background or setup your return address on an invitation envelope there are labor costs associated with the time involved. We have standardized that fee to $30 per item. The fee covers multiple draft copies and two proof copies, all delivered electronically, not physically.

Customized Text Fee- $30
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. 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 $30 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 $30 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.


If you are ordering a complete invitation set, be sure to change the quantity (and update cart) to match the number of unique pieces you are ordering. For example if you are ordering an invitation panel, map card, and mailing envelope, your quantity for the proofing fee would be 3, totaling $90 in setup costs.
