Color representation on screen vs. printed pieces
Colors on PDF proofs are used as a guide only. Colors and size on PDF files are not always 100% to scale. Ink colors will vary from computer monitor to monitor. When printing proofs out on home printers ink colors will vary from printer to printer. For accurate colors refer to the ink chart color chart from the Smitten sample kit.
To make changes to your proof simply reply to the email from your designer and any changes will come in 1 business day. We are also happy to chat over the phone or in person at our studio during business hours.
Number of changes and proof charges
The first three proofs are complimentary and any additional proofs are $20 each. We recommend that you bundle as many changes together as possible so as not to accrue unnecessary proofing charges. Each new PDF that is sent from your designer is considered a proof.
We ask that the final guest list be submitted at the time of proof approval. This helps keep our print and production time line as accurate as possible. Proof approvals submitted without a final guest list will incur an additional production fee. We recommend that you begin gathering your guest addresses as soon as possible!
If a cancellation is needed after the first proof has been sent a cancellation fee of $100 plus the cost of any additional proofs will be applied.
Please remember to check for spelling, grammar, dates, times, addresses and phone numbers. You’ll also want to double check items such as fonts, layouts, ribbon color, envelope color, backing paper color and order quantities for each piece. Use the checklist below to make sure all pieces are correct. have someone who has never seen the order before do a final read through before approving.
Smitten on Paper is not responsible for any errors found after printing. We do everything in our power to send out perfect orders. If there is a mistake on our part we will correct it as soon as possible or come up with a solution that works for everyone. If there is a mistake on the order as approved, we will have to charge for reprinting. We obviously do not want this to happen so please have a fresh set of eyes look over the order before approving.
Please check your order thoroughly when it is received as we cannot make any changes or refunds after 14 days from receipt.

Mailing your Invitations
Smitten on Paper is not responsible for your invitations once they are sent out through USPS (or any other international postal carriers) to your guests. We highly suggest that you order extra invites to account for lost, damaged or returned items that may occur during transit time via USPS. We always recommend that you have your invitations hand-canceled.
What is hand-canceling?
Hand-canceling is when each envelope is hand marked by a person at the post office instead of being run through an automated machine. The post office ensures the stamp(s) you put on the envelope can’t be reused again by marking or “canceling” it with an ink stamp. Unless you specifically request your invitations to be hand-canceled, they will be processed and stamped by a machine, which might tear or smudge them. We always recommend invitations be hand-canceled at the post office to ensure that they arrive at their destination looking as beautiful as possible. Check with your local post office for availability and pricing before you purchase postage. We cannot assume responsibility for the state of your invitations during mailing, but we have found hand-canceling is the best way to ensure a flawless delivery.
State Sales Tax
Retail customers in the state of California will be charged the state sales tax rate of 9.5%. Wholesale customers are not charged sales tax.
