With all products for reproduction (e.g. invitations, programs, menus), you will receive proofs to view and sign off on before printing. This is your opportunity to quality check your design. After you okay, any printed mistakes are no longer my responsibility. However, the other areas of the project will be designed with the utmost care and if anything isn't top notch, please let me know ASAP so that I can make the necessary changes.

With handwritten products (e.g. envelopes, escort cards), please understand that I am human, and I do make mistakes. Be sure to double check your order and report any mistakes in a numbered list via email with the subject line "Mistakes." I will redo everything free of cost. If you have made a mistake on an address and it needs to be rewritten, you will need to pay for me to rewrite it. Please send an email with the subject line "Redos" and list the redos in numerical order.
