The file layout, content, and text is the responsibility of the client.  Creative Mate Design reviews each file for sizing and resolution.  Typos or other potential errors are the responsibility of the client.  If an order does need to be reprinted due to an error with the design, please contact Creative Mate Design.  We will be happy to assist the client with placing a discounted reprint order.  Please review the Reprints/Refunds Policy.

Reprints / Refunds

To be eligible for a reprint or refund, you must notify Creative Mate Design via email at regarding the issue within 7 days of the order being delivered to the shipping address provided.  “Delivered” is defined by the shipping company tracking time stamp.  Once we receive your email regarding issues with your order, we will inspect the digital images provided of the order and notify you that we have received your request.  We may contact you to clarify the issues raised with your order.  Be aware Creative Mate Design provides custom printed cards that are printed as a batch.  Due to variances in the production process, we may deliver up to 4% more or 4% fewer cards than the actual card quantity ordered.  Be aware that reprints/refunds are normally not approved for delivered quantities that fall within this tolerance.

If a reprint is approved, it will be printed in the next available production run and shipped via 2-3 day method.  Reprints will only be shipped via Express 1-2 day method if the original order was shipped Express or if the client pays for Express shipping for the reprint.  If time does not allow for a reprint prior to the event, we will initiate a refund to your credit card (or original method of payment).  If agreed by both parties, Creative Mate Design may fully/partially refund the order rather than issuing a reprint.

You will receive the credit within a certain amount of days, depending on your card issuer’s policies.
