Fonts & Design Style
The fonts and overall design style used for this Newspaper Holiday Card are as pictured. If you would like a new, custom design with a different style, layout, or fonts, please contact me to receive a custom quote.
Your order includes three (3) PDF proofs: the initial proof, plus two (2) rounds of revisions. Revision requests after proof #3 are subject to a $25 fee per proof.
Final approval is required before sending your order to print. Please check the proof carefully. After approval, your order immediately moves on to the printing phase, and any further changes will require additional fees to reprint the order.
Need to know more before placing your order? Shoot me an email! I’m happy to answer any questions you may have.
Timeline & Process
Standard processing time for design, production, and delivery is about 2 weeks. This allows:
- 2 days for design of your proof
- 2-3 days for checking the proof, revisions, and approval

*Please note that the above processing time begins after I’ve received all content.*
You should factor in additional time to prepare content, complete my questionnaire, and provide a photo. Actual timeline is dependent on how quickly you provide all text and photos for the newspaper, respond to proofs, and give feedback/revisions. The number of revision rounds may also delay the process.

Policies & Notes
Since this is a customized item, I cannot accept returns—but please contact me as soon as possible if you have any problems with your order. I definitely want you to be happy with your prints! Please review the Shop Policies for more specific details before placing your order.
Photos you provide must be high-resolution to result in a quality printed product (generally larger file sizes are better).
I always do my best to fix obvious errors when I see them, but it is the buyer’s responsibility to make sure all information, grammar, and spelling is correct before approving the proof to be printed. Once the design is approved and sent to the printer, any further changes will require additional fees for reprinting your order.
