QUALITY OF PRINTED PRODUCTS
Colours and/or materials may differ slightly, the quality of the images online is not comparable with the true products. We advise Customers to request a sample before ordering printed goods. Samples sent may not reflect on the quality of your finished goods as card stock and printing methods may vary between batches. Card dimensions given are approximate and there may be some variation between batches of cards.
Because of the printing method, goods produced at a later date may not match exactly. This applies with all batch printing and is not a compromise of quality for which Wild Sea Calligraphy can be held responsible. We use print suppliers who are based in the UK and we only print on the highest quality paper stocks. Our printer utilises digital print; as such there can be a degree of movement in the printing process; up to 1/16-inch and up to 1/32-inch tolerances are quite standard in digital printing. There can also be differences in the final colour between paper stocks, printer types and different batches of print.
For personalised orders Wild Sea Calligraphy will produce digital proof copies of all inserts required as standard. Printed copies can be arranged but may be subject to a fee depending on the printing methods involved.
The checking of the proofs, samples and order form is the sole responsibility of the Customer. Wild Sea Calligraphy requires written confirmation either by letter or e-mail that the proof, sample or order form is correct or that amendments are required. Wild Sea Calligraphy will not commence printing until the Customer confirms approval. Please note that e-mail confirmations will be dated and filed. Changes made after confirmation of approval are liable to a charge.
AMENDMENTS OR CANCELLATIONS
Any amendments that the Customer requires after work has commenced will result in an additional charge at Wild Sea Calligraphy’s discretion.
Any errors on the part of Wild Sea Calligraphy will be rectified at Wild Sea Calligraphy’s cost. Wild Sea Calligraphy may require that any printed work in question be returned together with a written record of any faults. Postage will be reimbursed to the Customer only where the fault lies with Wild Sea Calligraphy. Prints may be replaced or rectified at Wild Sea Calligraphy’s discretion.
Your order is printed and assembled to order therefore we are unable to provide refunds for unwanted designs nor can we accept cancellations once printing has commenced. There will be a charge if your order is cancelled before printing but after proofs have been compiled. This charge is variable depending upon the complexity of the order and time spent but will not be less than £50.00. We strongly advise you to request a sample of your preferred design prior to ordering to avoid possible disappointment.
We include up to 3 revisions of customised and bespoke work. Any further revisions will incur a fee of £30 per revision. If a substantial design change is required we will send you an amended quote for the new work and invoice you for the work already carried out.
If for any reason a workshop has to be cancelled by Wild Sea Calligraphy attendees will be notified as soon as possible and an alternative workshops date and if required venue will be secured. All tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable. If the class has to be cancelled due to illness Wild Sea Calligraphy will make every endeavour to find a replacement teacher or will postpone the workshop and rearrange for another date.
Wild Sea Calligraphy is confident you will be happy with its products, however in the event that you are not, please ensure Wild Sea Calligraphy receives any complaint you may have within seven days of receipt of goods. Please note Wild Sea Calligraphy can only exchange faulty goods after they have been received back in full.
