Letterpress Products Terms of Use

Please understand letterpress printing is a craft - lovingly practiced by artisans and enthusiasts. At Page, each piece of paper is hand-fed through antique presses, which allows for the unique look and character of our products. It is a meticulous, finicky, and at times, pain-staking process, but the result is a thing of beauty. Please be aware due to the nature of the letterpress process you may find inconsistencies in ink color and impression. Your printed piece may appear differently than those shown on our website or from samples received from Page Stationery. and may not entitle you to a refund or reprinting of your product or service. Please see limitations of liability and warranties sections below.

To receive the discount you MUST enter the discount code provided in the coupon box at the time of the order. Failure to do so negates any discount and discounts cannot be given after the fact.



Where do I get these Photo sizes for Christmas or Baby orders

Mpix.com has all of our sizes, 2.5" x 3.5", 3.5' x 5" and 4 x 6 photos. They die cut their pictures so the corners are slightly rounded. You can opt to not have them rounded. Ezprints.com is another. These are standard sizes except that the wallet size may differ from vendor to vendor. You should check to be sure what size your developer considers a "wallet" photo before ordering your photos. Local processors like Costco may provide many of these sizes. Please check with your processor before ordering. We are not responsible for photo prints or issues from improper sizing of photos.

Digital Asset Management. Formal purchase agreements, use or rights agreements, or archive agreements should accompany any digital file. A sample of what is requested or hard copy proof of that file should also accompany the file. The agreement should note the costs for the use of the file, the period of time the file should be saved or archived, and the ownership of the file in its original and final form.

It is the customer's responsibility to maintain a copy of the original file. The provider is not responsible for accidental damage to media supplied by the customer or for the accuracy of finished input or final output. Until digital input can be evaluated by the provider no claims or promises are made about the provider's ability to work with jobs submitted in digital format, and no liability is assumed for problems that may arise. Any additional translating, editing or programming needed to utilize customer-supplied files will be charged at prevailing rates.

Versions. All files should be clearly named or clearly dated with relation to their use. All old versions or unnecessary files should be deleted or erased from any storage or transportable media intended for use by a commercial supplier. Properly sized and marked hard copies or laser proofs of those files should accompany the project. Costs incurred by the mistaken use of improperly outdated files may be the responsibility of the provider of those files.

The setting and communicating of copyright guidelines and usage guidelines for an original image or a file are the responsibility of the customer.

The copy of the original file given by a customer to a provider remains the property of the customer. All other files created or amended by the provider are the property of the provider.

The amended file created by a provider to achieve an end result or product remains the property of the provider.

Some files created on different operating platforms may be mutually incompatible. Some files created by different versions of the same software may be unusable. Large image files may take hours to transmit through commercially available access lines.

Software. Files used by clients for production work may be created and saved in the latest accepted industry version." High end prepress computer equipment" may not be able to improve the quality of low resolution original images.

Corrupt files. A corrupted file, or a file that can't be read or laser printed by a client may not be able to be used or accessed by a supplier.

Use of photographs or illustrations is dictated by a rights agreement or negotiated ownership agreement. Subtle changes to those images using computer-generated techniques or changes in their final format may infringe on the artist's rights and contractual agreements.

An image or file downloaded from the web and used or repurposed for a commercial application, may infringe on the rights of the creator or originator of that image or file.

It is customary in the industry to charge for the time or materials used by a supplier to recreate an original file into a usable file for production or for a client's use.

It is customary in the industry to charge for special digital retouching or image manipulation to photographic or illustrative images.

It is customary in the industry to charge for uploading or copying a file to transportable or transmittable media.

Transmission of some digital files through commercial e-mail or Internet service providers may be limited. Attachments to those files may also be limited in quality to text or to small image files.



Enlargements. A "high resolution file" remains high resolution only if it is used at close to the same size in which it was created. Some graphic files, if not compressed properly for transmission, may output only as text files. Some graphic files if compressed using the latest version of a compression program may not expand or open if that latest version is not used by the recipient of that file. Some compressions may also lose data.

Designs or illustrations created electronically can only be proofed properly by using some form of high resolution output and proof devices.

Proof Process and Approval

Once your online order is submitted and paid in full, you will receive a black and white proof via email within 2 business days. The initial proof and first round of changes are free of charge. Each additional proof thereafter is $30. Please make sure you print out your proofs at 100% to ensure accuracy. Check your proof carefully and email back any edits/changes. We will make revisions and reply back to you. If approved, please reply noting approval in the subject line of the email or fax. Your estimated ship date is based on the date of approval. Ship dates are estimated and we try our best to adhere to this schedule, but they are not guaranteed.

Page will not be responsible for undetected production errors if: - proofs are not required by the customer; - the work is printed per the customer's O.K.; - requests for changes are communicated orally.



Remember, we print directly from the approved proof. Page Stationery is not responsible for ANY spelling, typographical, design or sizing errors that have been approved. Page Stationery is not responsible for proof errors that are made by one of our designers, this is the purpose of having a proofing process and why we offer one free round of proofs for customers to diligently review their order. Page will not incur the costs of reprinting and shipping orders due to these errors, nor will a refund be issued for these errors. Please keep in mind that colors appear differently on computer monitors than they do in person. The colors shown are not an exact representation of the printed inks. When you submit an order to Page Stationery and/or approve your proofs you are agreeing to this approval policy.

Color Proofing. Because of differences in equipment, paper, inks and other conditions between color proofing and production pressroom operations, a reasonable variation in color between color proofs and the completed job is to be expected. When variation of this kind occurs, it will be considered acceptable performance.

Press Proofs. Press proofs will not be furnished unless they have been required in writing in the provider's quotation.



Cancellations and Returns:

You may cancel your order and receive a full refund if we have not yet emailed you a proof. You may cancel your order and receive a partial refund if we have already emailed you a proof. In this case, your refund will be the total paid minus a proof fee of $30. You may NOT cancel any orders that have already been approved. We do not accept returns on any custom orders. These orders are final. They are non-refundable, non-returnable and non-exchangeable.

Your order will be canceled and we will refund the cost, less any customization options, design fees, rush related and proof processing fees.



What is the turnaround time for a custom order?

Generally, it takes us about 7-10 business days from proof approval to complete a custom letterpress order. Keep in mind, turnaround time is not guaranteed. During peak season especially wedding and holiday, turnaround times are longer. A turnaround time may exceed 10 business days at any time.
