We are an Australian owned and operated business. All prices are in Australian Dollars (AUD) including GST and are subject to change and availability. Sizes and designs may change over time. Bluebelle Studio reserves the right to update their pricing at any time without notice. 

PAYMENT & ORDERING

As each job is printed on a to-order basis, full payment payment is required before work can commence on your job (50% deposit for custom orders, followed by final payment upon approval for print). The easiest and most efficient way to order is via our secure online shopping cart through STRIPE. It’s user-friendly, and you can be assured that your personal details are treated with the utmost security and privacy.

SAMPLE PROOF

A PDF proof will be emailed to you for approval before printing. Once you have checked and approved your proof, please email your approval in writing to hello@bluebellestudio.com.au. Once your approval has been received, your job will be sent to print and posted out to you. Please allow minimum 20 business days from approval of your proof to delivery. (See 'Ordering' for more information on lead times). For custom colour and design work we only send out hard copy proofs prior to print ON REQUEST. As per our Printing/Colour policy below, there may be a slight variance in colour to the proof and your final print run.

PROOF READING

The PDF proof is sent to you to check the content. Please be aware that due to variations in monitors and also to the different print process we use, the appearance of colours and images in the finished product may vary to how they look on your screen or to prints from other sources. Client errors that are signed off through the proofing process are to be reprinted at the clients expense. It is the client’s responsibility to check all copy is correct. Ensure that all text supplied is as final as possible, we allow for one set of text amendments at proof stage (two sets for custom).

GUEST LISTS

If you have selected to put guest names on invitations, we will email you a spreadsheet template for you to fill out and email back to us. Please ensure all names typed exactly as you would like them to be spelt and written. eg. Mr & Mrs Doe, Bob and Jane Doe, Robert & Jane. And for place cards one name per line or cell, eg Bob, Jane etc.

It is important that you ensure all spelling, punctuation and spacing is correct on your guest list as our printer uses an automated system and your list will be printed exactly as supplied. Any errors supplied by clients on their lists will be reprinted at the clients expense.

ALTERATIONS

Our standard pricing includes the placement of your wording/images into your chosen theme/layout, plus one set of text amendments at PDF proof stage (two sets for custom jobs). Additional amendments will be charged at an hourly rate. Alterations to your order may be made until the final PDF proof is approved. Once approved, no alterations may be undertaken. Signed approval back to us will confirm the completion of your order.

Bluebelle Studio is committed to providing you with a flawless design process with the utmost attention to detail. If however any errors are made on behalf of Bluebelle Studio they will be reprinted free of charge. It is the client's responsibility to supply, then check all wording and layout to ensure it is correct before signing the authorization on the final PDF, if errors are found after this sign off, we will have to charge the client for a reprint. 

COLOURS

As all stationery is printed digitally it is possible that subtle colour variations can occur between each piece.This is not a fault of the design but a natural effect of the printing process. There can also be a colour variation between stock types because of the way the ink sits on different card stock varying in material and texture. Therefore designs printed on shimmer can have a variation in colour and look compared to those printed on smooth white card stock.

Please also be aware that due to variations in monitors and also to the different print process we use, the appearance of colours and images in the finished product may vary to how they look in the proofs on your screen or to prints from other sources. Stationery can not be refunded or returned because of normal printing effects. We take pride in the quality of our work and assure you that all of our stationery is printed to the highest professional standards. Bluebelle Studio cannot be held responsible for colour differentiation.

PLEASE NOTE: The colours shown on our printed colour palette and in our samples are a guide to the shades we have available. Due to the variable nature of the digital printing process, these colours do shift between each print run, therefore an identical match to our printed colour palette that you have received as part of a sample pack may not be achieved.

If you wish to have a specific colour, we offer 'off-set' printing (more costly) in which you choose a PMS colour to replicate.

PRINT ON WOOD

Our wood invitations are REAL TIMBER. This means that no two invitations are ever the same. Each batch of timber harvested may look slightly different from the previous, even though they are the same tree type. This is due to the natural characteristics of the product. 

SAMPLES

We take great pride in the quality of our work. If you are unsure of the quality of our finished product we highly recommend the purchase of a sample prior to ordering.  As above, it is possible for a variation in colour to occur between your sample pack products and your finished order. Samples printed on shimmer will also vary in colour to those printed on other stock. As each order is printed individually we can not guarantee exact colour matches to samples or swatches supplied. Sometimes we may supply samples in custom colours different to what is shown on our website - this is to give you an idea of the options available - if you would like to order in this alternative colourway please select the custom colour option at time of order, otherwise your order will processed in the standard colours shown on the website. 

STOCK AVAILABILITY

Orders are subject to stock availability. In the event of supply difficulties Bluebelle Studio will inform you and discuss alternative materials or designs.

WRITING ON STATIONERY

Our stationery is not designed to be put through another printer to type the names of your guests. If this is the outcome you would like please choose to have guest names printed on your order. If you are writing on the invitations it is advisable to test the pen you are planning to use first to avoid smudging and double printing. We recommend that you allow at least 5 -15 spare invitations in your order quantity to allow for calligrapher errors.

POSTAGE & PACKING

Postage will be calculated at checkout. Wedding and party orders are delivered by either Australia Post or Courier and will require a signature. We are not liable for any damage whatsoever caused by third parties as we take great care in packaging your order to reach you intact. Bluebelle Studio cannot be held responsible for any loss or damage in transit once the order has been dispatched.  You will be supplied with a courier tracking number on the day that your package is collected from our studio so you can track your goods from door to door.

DEADLINES/DELIVERY TIMES

Please be aware that printed images may differ in colour, darkness/lightness and quality to that of prints from other sources/print methods and to that of how they appear on your screen.
