PRODUCTION POLICIES

SBW agrees to produce work as listed on the SBW website at your request for the fees shown at checkout. Semi-custom suites generally take anywhere between 3-6 weeks to produce depending on the amount of personalisation included in your order. This does not include shipping time. SBW will strive to work within this timeframe however it is your responsibility to cooperate in a timely manner. SBW will not be responsible for not meeting deadlines due to delayed customer action or response. If you require more work done after placing your initial order, this can be accommodated for at your request but may incur additional fees which will be reflected in your final invoice. You will receive this final invoice before your order goes to print. Please be aware that in doing so, this may also result in an extended timeline. In this case, SBW and the customer will set a new agreed-upon deadline.

RUSH ORDERS

Rush orders are orders that are required to be produced within 3 weeks of enquiry and will incur a 30% rush fee of the customer's total payment. This total payment includes any additional fees incurred from any additional work requested by you. Please note that with rush orders, you may also have to consider expedited shipping options which consequently incur higher shipping costs. 

 

DESIGN POLICIES

As included in your fee, SBW will allow one design revision round for minor changes in spelling and wording. Any additional revisions will incur a $75 fee unless it is due to fault of the artist. It is extremely important that you thoroughly check all your design proofs for any errors including but not limited to spelling, times, dates, names, URL's, design elements and layouts. Once you have given your approval for the final design, you are giving SBW the permission to put into production all designs as they appear on the final design proof. SBW will communicate possible issues you may have with regards to your designs in the process of your revisions if any but will not be held responsible for any and all errors pertaining to the relevant stationery designs after your final approval.

HANDWRITTEN CALLIGRAPHY WORK

With any items requiring handwritten calligraphy, please be aware of the slight variations in spacing, size and style that may occur. By engaging SBW's services for any handwritten product, you are agreeing to trust the artist's capability and artistic style. If you are unhappy with any part of the calligraphy, please get in touch within 48 hours so the situation can be assessed. If SBW determines that the calligraphy is clear and legible, you may purchase replacements at your expense. On the other hand, if it is clearly the fault of the artist as determined by SBW, a replacement product will be sent to you at the earliest convenience free of charge. It is highly recommended that you refer to the various calligraphy styles available on the Guide to Semi-Custom Invitations and to make your own judgement call before engaging in SBW's services with regards to artistic style as seen on the SBW website and social media platforms.
