The Proof (PDF preview):


What is a preview?

A PDF preview is a model of your chosen item and text. It allows you to verify the text and layout of your article to make sure that you are absolutely happy with the way it looks before ordering.
Important: we remind you that you will be responsible for checking your preview so please do so carefully.

I have ordered something, when can I expect my preview?

One of our designers will send you your preview within 48/72 working hours after we have received your order. Then confirm it or request a modification by email.
Please note that your 1st modification you make on your PDF preview implies a 24-hour delay (48h for the 2nd, etc..)

When should I refuse/ accept my preview?

You can refuse your preview if it contains any big mistakes (wrong font or spelling mistake in a name). Accept your preview if it is exactly the way you would like it to be or if it contains a small mistake that can be easily adapted. If your preview merely has a slight mistake, please add a commentary that clearly explains what to correct and how.

Important: If in the unfortunate event you have to you refuse your preview, please indicate why you are doing so.

I validated my preview when can I expect my order?

You can expect us to send you your order within 3-5 working days after having given us your printing confirmation.

I can’t seem to open my preview.

Maybe you do not have the program Acrobat Reader. This program allows you to open most of the documents available on-line. In that case you might need to download it first on the website of Adobe http://get.adobe.com/uk/reader/

If you already have the program Acrobat Reader but are still unable to open your preview, please contact us.

Why can't I print my "ready to printing" in colour?

We usually work with traditional pantone printing colours. Because of screen calibrations, you would not have the exact card colour on your computer. To evoid this problem, we edit each ready to printing in black and white mentioning the pantone printing colour we used.
You should note that it is not recommanded to read the ready to printing on your cellphone! You should rather use a PC or your tablet!

Do I have to validate my birth announcement preview if the baby is not born yet?

No. We advise you to wait until the baby is born to validate your preview and add all missing information as a commentary (date & time of birth, height and weight).

 

Other questions:


Will my order arrive completely assembled?

No, on arrival your order will not be assembled; this will be up to you. But don’t worry!  We will add an assembled model to each order of cards with a higher grade of assembling.

 

What does paperweight mean (example: 250 gr.)?

It concerns the paper thickness and is calculated in grammes per square meter. It helps calculating the final weight of a page, a flyer, a business card or a wedding invitation by multiplying the length (in meter), the width (in meter) and the paperweight.
For example, for a 10 cm x 15 cm x 350 gr.m² invitation, the weight of each invitation will be: 0.10 x 0.15 x 350 = 5.25 grammes.

 

How many items can I add to my basket during my final order?

As many as you wish from the required minimum (except for the end-of-series, because the number is limited according to the stock) and, for most items, in multiples of 5. These 2 datas are indicated on top of the "Enter my text/Order" fuschia button, on each product description.

 

Is it possible to personalise texts and photos?

Yes, our texts ideas are only there to help you create your own. Please feel free to modify them in any way. You can add your own photo there where you see “with photo”. If an item does not specifically indicate this, it is not suitable for photo printing.

 

Is it possible to change the paper colour or the accessories of a product?

Unfortunately not, it is only possible to personalise the text, colour and font.

 

Can I change the required amount of a product after having validated my preview?

Yes, please contact us as soon as possible to do so.
