Production begins upon receipt of initial booking fee payment, relevant client documents, shop policies and supplies. The design and assembly process can take 3-8 weeks from start to finish. Please give yourself and us enough time to complete your order, taking proofing, designing, printing and assembly time into consideration.
Two complimentary rounds of proof revisions are included. Any additional rounds of revision will incur additional cost and will be billed at the final invoice. Please note that the more rounds it takes, the longer your completion date will be pushed back, so we recommend you communicate your desired changes all at once to avoid additional revision rounds. If proofs or information is not turned around in a timely fashion, your workflow may be subject to interruption by other standing projects.
In addition to the design elements, it is extremely important that you thoroughly check your proofs for correct wording, event dates, event times, and spelling of all words, including names and places. Clients must approve proof designs before they are printed and/or inked. This does not apply to individual envelope addresses or place cards, but rather the general style and layout chosen. Once final approval for the proof is received, you are giving Theoberry Stationery the permission to print all pieces as they appear on your final proof. No changes can be made after proof has been approved. Theoberry Stationery will not be held responsible for any errors found after your approval. Any reprint to occur after approval of the proofs will be clients responsibility. In the event that your prints do not match the approved proofs, Theoberry Stationery will take full responsibility for any reprinting costs.
Handmade paper are hand made one sheet at a time, no two sheets are the same and every sheet is unique in its own way. Every sheet will vary in size, shape, texture and may appear imperfect, but these unique qualities is what makes handmade paper so special and beautiful.
CALLIGRAPHY ON ENVELOPES
The nature of hand addressed envelopes will vary from that of printed addresses. Each address will vary depending on the letters, length of names, street names, city and state lengths and visually appear different from one another when compared. Addresses with 4-5 lines of text will look different from those with fewer. Please have this expectation set when ordering hand calligraphy. Each envelope is a single work of art, and must be appreciated as such.
CALLIGRAPHY AND THE POST
The post office reads envelopes electronically. Due to the nature of calligraphy, some addresses or calligraphy styles will be more or less difficult to read when put through Australia Post and other postal companies. It is the nature with any hand written address. 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. Theoberry Stationery is NOT responsible for resending, reprinting or reimbursing for invitations or addresses that do not make it to their intended address. As with any mass mailing, you are likely to have 1-3% of your pieces be undeliverable. Please check your address list carefully to ensure all your addresses are correct to minimize this effect. To further minimise the effect is to have the addresses written in block letters.
WAX SEALS AND THE POST
Our wax seals are made from flexible wax and when it is properly placed onto the envelope, it is capable of bending with the envelope without cracking. However, we recommend sending wax seal invitations in an outer envelope to prevent the wax seal from getting caught in the post office machinery and to prevent damage to the wax seal during transit. Theoberry Stationery is NOT responsible for any damage wax seals and invitations that occur during transit.

However, if the error is found on the name/address list provided by you, a refund or replacement will not be offered.
