Artistic Style I consider it an honor to be a part of your special events and want you to be thrilled! Before contracting my services, please spend time reviewing my work to ensure you like and trust my artistic style and abilities. You can be assured I will create your project to the same quality as the samples on my website.
Licensing As the artist, I remain the sole owner of all artistic rights. Commissioned art is for personal use only. Separate commercial licensing agreements are available.
Photography Emailed copies of professional photography taken of my work are always appreciated. You are encouraged to share images on social media (credit with “Calligraphy by Adela Chavez”). If sharing on Instagram, please tag @adelachvz.
Quantity Changes If the quantity of guests/product decreases after payment of the deposit, the original agreed-upon terms remain in effect.
Text Submission The provided text will be written exactly as submitted. For commissioned pieces, no changes may be made after work has begun. Name/address lists may be provided as Word document or Excel spreadsheet. Please note that if the text is not submitted by the requested date, it is likely to delay the order deadline.
Additional Blanks Please understand that error is inevitable in hand-produced work. For projects such as envelopes and place cards, please provide a minimum of 20% additional blank product with a minimum of 10 count. The more extras I have, the faster I can work and the sooner the order will be completed.
Corrections Please review the final order upon receipt to be sure there are no corrections needed. If any corrections are needed, please email a complete list within 72 hours of delivery.
Calligraphed Mail With any handwritten address, the automated postal scanners may have trouble reading the envelope. Any address that cannot be read by machine is routinely hand-inspected and mailed by the postal employees.
