Following your complimentary consultation (where we will discuss things such as color scheme, style/feel, working, etc), a custom quote will be created based on your design needs and quantities requested. Your custom quote will be sent in a PDF and must be electronically signed within 72 hours. Approval of your custom quote confirms that you are ready to move forward with Painted Pine Studios as your designer and you will be required to submit a 40% deposit to hold your space in our design calendar, this amount is deducted from your final total.
2:Deposit & Payments
The purpose of the 40% deposit is to confirm your space in our design calendar as well as to cover any design time on the initial design for your products. All deposits are non-refundable once the design process has begun, however, deposits may be refunded if the client must cancel PRIOR to the beginning of the design process. Deposits will be DEDUCTED from the final total for all work to be done, these deposits ARE NOT an additional charge and this will be reflected in the quote/contract. Final payment must be provided at the time of proof approval, all final balances must be paid in full before any production/printing will begin. Payments will be accepted via PayPal (with the use of a credit or debit card) or check, a $75 fee will incur for all returned checks.
3: Design & Proofing
Once your deposit had been received, the initial design process will begin. During the design process, I will be checking in frequently to request additional information as needed and to ensure we are on track with the look of your invitation suite, custom guestbook or other products and a proof will be provided for revision within 2-3 weeks from the beginning of the design process.
From here we begin the revision process, your custom quote covers up to 4 revisions and we ask that ALL revisions be provided at one time to ensure we make the most out of both our time. After each revision, a new proof will be submitted for approval, please ensure you take time to FULLY proofread each design to ensure no errors are sent to print. We understand the proofing process may take some time to confirm all spelling and wording is exactly as it should be so we allow the client to take up to 48 hours to verify everything is accurate on their custom design. A final proof will be provided following this process and will need to be approved with a digital signature prior to the printing stage.
4: Printing & Delivery
Once designs are sent to print, there will be NO MORE changes permitted, if an error is caught by the client after designs are sent to print there will be an additional revision and printing charge required for those changes. Upon final approval, Painted Pine Studios is no longer responsible for any errors in grammar, spelling, punctuation, etc. No refunds or discounts will be provided if any errors are found after printing has begun.
