- you are duly authorized to use such credit card for the purchase
- charges incurred by you will be honored by your credit card company
- you will pay charges incurred by you at the posted prices, including all applicable taxes, if any.
- Proofing & Revisions
- You are entitled to two rounds of revisions for Emery Ann Collection designs. Additional revisions shall be provided for an additional fee of $50.00 per revision round and will be sent in a separate invoice.
- If after print approval and before your order has gone into production you choose to make a change, you will be charged a revision fee of $150.
- After your order has gone into production, revisions cannot be made unless you pay for printing, material, and revision fee of $150 for each piece.
- If you wish to change an item, and that change substantially alters the specifications as described in the original estimate, or scope of work, you and Emery Ann Design, LLC will execute an additional signed agreement reflecting the revised order specification and fee.
- Accuracy. You assume responsibility for providing correct times, dates, and spelling of all words, including names and places, in addition to the design elements. Before Emery Ann Design, LLC begins the final project, Emery Ann Design, LLC will submit a final proof/print approval email to you for review. Once approved, no changes can be made and Emery Ann Design, LLC will not be held responsible for any errors found after approval, nor will Emery Ann Design, LLC be required to make any changes.
- Quantity. Most styles of invitations must be ordered with a minimum of 25 in multiples of 25. It is recommended that you order at least one extra for a keepsake, one for your photographer to take detail shots, and a few for any last-minute guests or keepsakes for other family members as it is more costly to order reprints. Please also keep in mind that invitations are being handled by the USPS and may be lost in the mail, ordering 10-20% extra in case of this is always a good rule of thumb.
- Timeline. Please see the specific item for design and printing times. The design and assembly process can take up to 8 weeks for collection items and extra time for custom designs. You understand that delay in approving the proofs will result in a delay of the order.
- Emery Ann Design, LLC sends details form within 1 business day of order.

- Production will begin and ready to ship within 2-3 weeks unless you add assembly and embellishments. Please see product page for specific timing.
- Rush Orders. If a rush order is needed, an invoice of 60% of the order will be sent to you and will not begin until payment has been received. Rush orders are accepted depending on availability and the needs of the project. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to see if there is availability for your rush order. Emery Ann Design, LLC shall not bear responsibility for rush charges for delivery and printing to meet a deadline.
- Address List and Guest List. If you order guest addressed envelopes or variable data printing such as place cards or escort cards, Emery Ann Design, LLC will send specifications on prepping your address list and guest list if needed for addressing envelopes and any day-of stationery such as place cards or escort cards with a specific CVS file. Addresses, names, and other information will be written exactly as they appear on provided list from you. Emery Ann Design, LLC will not make etiquette or spelling corrections. If you wish Emery Ann Design, LLC to prepare or adjust a list, a $200 fee will be added onto your final invoice per list.
- Embellishments. Emery Ann Design, LLC cannot guarantee that identical embellishments displayed in photographs or samples of past work will still be available from the same suppliers at the time of ordering (ribbon color/width, envelope color, etc.). Emery Ann Design, LLC will make a good faith effort to match the embellishment shown or requested. You authorize Emery Ann Design, LLC to make a complementary substitution based on her professional opinion and the requested design if necessary.
- Variances. It is possible that subtle variances in color can occur between print runs. This is a natural effect in the printing process that cannot be avoided. Due to the nature of handmade items, each will have slight variations. Stationery cannot be returned or refunded because of these variances. Emery Ann Design, LLC will not bear any responsibility for reprinting or shipping. Emery Ann Design, LLC will provide digital mock-ups for client approval for designs, color, as well as digital images for envelopes and materials. As computer monitors use a light-based source to show color, and calibration of color varies from computer to computer, there is the chance that a client’s prints and/or envelopes and materials may arrive with a slight variance in hue from the client’s original perception. Emery Ann Design, LLC shall not bear any responsibility for reprinting, shipping or brokerage charges as a result of a reorder for this cause.
- Creative License of Designer. You understand that the nature of designing stationery is unique, and will vary from piece to piece.

- Consistency. Emery Ann Design, LLC will use reasonable efforts to ensure your desired Services are produced in a style and manner consistent with Emery Ann Design, LLC current portfolio and Emery Ann Design, LLC will try to incorporate any reasonable suggestion made by you. However, you understand and agree that:
- Every client and wedding is different, with different tastes, budgets, and needs;
- Design services are often a subjective art and Emery Ann Design, LLC has a unique vision, with an ever-evolving style and technique;
- Emery Ann Design, LLC will use its artistic judgment when providing Services for Emery Ann Design, LLC, which may not include strict adherence to your suggestions;

- Dissatisfaction with Emery Ann Design, LLC’s aesthetic judgment or artistic ability are not valid reasons for termination of this Agreement or request of any monies returned.
- The Post Office. Although the post office reads envelopes electronically, because all typography designs are unique, some addresses or calligraphy styles will be more or less difficult to be read electronically. You understand that any address that can not be read by machine will likely be hand inspected. If the address still can not be delivered, it will be returned to the address of the return. Emery Ann Design, LLC is not responsible for resending, reprinting or reimbursing for invitations or addresses that do not make it to their intended address.
- Posting.
