1. Order Process & Website
Once you place your order via the checkout and the supplied order forms on the website, we will send you an email confirming receipt of your request. This does not accept the order, only acknowledges the details have been received. Accepted payment methods are Paypal, Personal Cheque, Postal Order or a Bank Transfer. Once payment is made in full, a receipt will be supplied to confirm the payment. The order will only commence once all essential details have been submitted and full payment has been made. Once an order form is received we consider this your full instruction to proceed with a design proof. Turnaround for the proof for Cute Map and Cute Path design orders is up to 14 days unless the Fast Track service is purchased which involves a proof within 5 days.For Matching Stationery Orders, the proof turnaround time is 7 days unless the Fast Track service is purchased which involves a proof within 3 days. A contract between you and Cute Maps for the sale of our products will only exist once an order has been accepted, confirmed, paid and dispatched (via post or email) to you.
Amendments following the proof:
Note prices are kept reasonable as they are calculated on design times attributed to an initial proof and, if required, a second proof with small reasonable tweaks. Therefore, large redesign requests, additional design requests and lengthy changes once a proof is issued incur the additional design fees. For 2018, our design fees are £45 per hour. Shifting and resizing also incurs additional costs. Small reasonable tweaks are free of charge.
Small reasonable tweaks are:
spelling corrections, wording tweaks, font tweaks, colouring to motifs, small design tweaks to motifs at the discretion of Cute Maps.
It is the customer’s responsibility to fully check the proof for any errors and misspellings. Cute Maps is not responsible for any errors after final approval is received from the customer. If errors are discovered after the artwork has been approved and production has begun, the client is responsible for all costs including reprinting.
