Terms & Conditions

Two Little Words reserves the right to change these terms and conditions at any time. Any such changes will take effect when posted on the website and it is your responsibility to read the terms and conditions on each occasion you use this website and your continued use of the website shall signify your acceptance to be bound by the latest terms and conditions.

Samples illustrate print and quality but may not be to your exact requirements -  we will send you exact proofs when you order.

All orders that you place with Two Little Words will be subject to acceptance in accordance with these terms and conditions.

Supply of information
Please ensure that information supplied for stationery is in a usable format and accurate to the best of your knowledge, to minimise amendments. Information for items needed on the day (Order of Service, Menus, Place Name Cards, Table Plans, Table names/numbers) must be signed off a minimum of 2 weeks prior to the wedding date to guarantee delivery in time for the wedding.

Proofs are sent via hard copy using the wording and layout agreed in your order - please note that you are responsible for checking spellings and grammar. If items are signed off with typing errors and subsequently printed, Two Little Words takes no responsibility. If replacements are required, they will be charged for. Also note that colour on screen can differ from printed colour and although colours are standardised you need to see hard samples using the exact colour you require before signing the stationery off for print.
Any changes required to the wording must be emailed through and the proof re-issued, rechecked and signed off. There is a £2 fee for re-issuing proofs.

Signing off
Two Little Words requires that, once happy with the proofs, you sign, send back a sign off form to confirm that you are happy with all elements of the proof from start to finish and are happy for the entire job to be printed. Lead times vary but in a small number of cases, printing can occur as quickly as the same day as sign off, so any subsequent corrections, not mentioned before sign off will result in the additional/amended invitations be charged on top of the original order.

All stationery, artwork and designs are the copyright of Two Little Words. All rights reserved. Due to the bespoke nature of the printing small variations in colour may occur. You are responsible for ensuring that you have permission to use any material (for example poems and hymns in your Order of Service or photography/imagery on bespoke stationery) you ask Two Little Words to include in your stationery. Two Little Words does not supply original artwork for printing with other suppliers.

Two Little Words reserves the right to feature your stationery and descriptions of it on promotional material, in magazines and the Two Little Words website or blog, but will never disclose your personal details or wedding details to third parties or online.

Bespoke Service
Bespoke service is charged at a flat rate of £50 payable with your invoice, this cost is not all encompassing and if a lot of time is spent developing a design the cost may need to be revised. If you like an existing design but would like minor changes made this is not usually charged for, depending on the work involved. If you want to do this please contact Two Little Words.

If you commit to the full bespoke service by agreeing for design work to start and then decide not to use the designs provided a charge of £25 will be invoiced to cover the cost of admin and initial design. All designs remain the copyright of Two Little Words and are not be reproduced on any other items unless permission or files are supplied by ourselves. Two Little Words also reserves the right to add your design or elements of it to our range of stationery styles after your wedding date.

Once we have received your order, we aim to get proofs to you within 3 working days. Once approved your finished stationery will be delivered in two weeks, sometimes less. You can pay a rush charge of £25 to have your stationery made top priority, this allows us to pay for expedited postage from our suppliers and work outside of normal hours to get them sorted for you. These time-scales are from when payment is received. Every effort is made to get orders processed and sent as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, these timings may change due to circumstances beyond our control, but we will always keep you updated on your order.

The total sum for your order is due on sign off and before printing commences.
