Everyone is rushing these days. It is not my problem if we start on your invitations late, but when you avail of the rush option, it becomes my problem. :) You are paying for overtime, expedited sourcing, and the disruption of our workflow to prioritize your project. On top of that, we will throw in our sanity, inner peace and good night's rest. These things are priceless to us. If you need your invites by a certain deadline, let's start your project early or pay for the rush fees. :)

 

For rush printing, artist may make the discretion of choosing readily available materials to meet the deadline. This might be choosing smooth paper instead of textured paper, or printing the background color instead of colored paper. This might also entail a slight alteration of invitation card size, depending on readily available envelopes. For decisions that will involve color changes or noticeable changes in design and size changes, artist will inform the client.

 

As much as we’d like to keep everything the same, rush meaning that we will have to cut corners where we can save time. We will spend extra costs on expedited shipping between sourcing / suppliers, ordering readily available envelopes and accessories, and disrupting the usual work flow to accommodate the rush project.

 

Client might also be asked to book for the pick up of the project. If there is no time to consolidate, client might be asked to book the pick up from several locations. (E.g. envelopes from the artists, cards from our shop).

 

If in case client avails of rush arrangement and changes mind mid-way, 50% of the rush fee will still be charged and is no longer refundable, once we have started on the work even if we have not yet made the first submission.

 

Please manage your own schedule.

We do not give "deadlines" for clients to submit forms. We might not be able to follow you up. We do our best to manage your project timeline, but as we handle many projects, please help yourself to submit everything on time and follow up.

Submit late, design starts late and production starts late. :)
