    Notes and Special Requests

     

     


    All of our standard Trade-Terms and Policies apply. 

    *Note that letterpress black ink on white paper does not create a solid carbon black density. The appearance of type is quite black, but larger elements will appear more or less dense.

    We will send a PDF proof of your card for approval before going to press. We will print the cards as shown unless we hear from you within 24 hours. 

    Note that no design changes are included in the price unless there are specific problems which are related to the text. We apply our best typographic practice to the templates, given the text that you provide (within reason). Any other design changes (size, placement, etc) are billed as customizations with a $75 minimum charge.  

    Please note, the cards are printed on SOFT-WHITE stock, not bright or florescent white. This is the only stock offered for the Zen of Letterpress cards. For other paper options, ink colors, etc, please see the Exquisite Business Cards Estimator!
