    What I love most is creating. It is inherent to me. Whether I am painting, baking, arranging flowers from my garden or simply coloring with my children, I try to find ways to make the everyday beautiful. I have a love for vintage, am a striver for perfection and get a profound joy out of making people happy. I feel blessed to be able to work on some of the most momentous occasions of a person's life. Weddings, births and anniversaries. Thank you for letting me be a little part of that special day.

Highly individual and almost sculptural in its results, letterpress printing marks the revival of elegant, social correspondence. It was the country’s predominant form of printing until the 1940s. Today, only a small amount of high-quality art and hobby letterpress printing remain.
Using the oldest form of printing on a restored 19th century Heidelburg press, LITTLE DOVE DESIGN captures the delicate beauty and tactile warmth that is so often lost in more modern printing techniques. Subtle variations in inking, color, impression, and position are inherent to the process. The client understands and accepts this in advance.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Other Method
Payment
A PDF file of the design will be e-mailed to you for review. Simply edit the text and provide any feedback on the design and fax it back to Chauhie. (You must have Adobe Acrobat Reader to open and view the PDF. It can be downloaded for free at www.adobe.com.) Client agrees to sign off, agreeing that we will print your order based upon the layout shown on the pdf. Client will mail or fax back one set of signed proofs to Chauhie. Once the signed proofs are received, we will order film and plates and schedule a print date with you.

After all revisions are approved, LITTLE DOVE DESIGN will make a FINAL PDF for you to ensure that everything is perfect. Please take time to proofread it carefully. Client agrees to sign, and approve all artwork, text, illustrations and colors for printing, and will note any edits clearly. Make sure the spelling, grammar, punctuation, layout and type styles are exactly as you want them. Client understands that LITTLE DOVE DESIGN is not responsible for any typographical errors, and will not incur the cost of reprinting and shipping orders due to any errors, nor will a refund be issued. Once a client has signed off on the proof, the liability for any error lies with the client. You must e-mail or fax back the PDF proof with your signature on it before the printing process can begin.

Upon approval and receipt of the final PDF, LITTLE DOVE DESIGN will proceed with printing. Depending on the agreed upon time schedule, it may take anywhere from four to six weeks to print and ship your order.
Shipping
LITTLE DOVE DESIGN ships all orders via insured USPS or UPS service. In the unlikely event invitations and related material becomes lost or damaged due to the fault of the carrier, LITTLE DOVE DESIGN is not liable, though LITTLE DOVE DESIGN insures all packages for the replacement value of the contents, and will work with the Client to replace any printed items in a timely manner at no additional cost to the Client.
Refunds and Exchanges
Due to the personalized nature of invitations, once a proof has been signed off on and a deposit received, a refund cannot be given. If an order is cancelled before a sign-off, a design fee will be deducted from the total and the remaining amount refunded.
Additional policies and FAQs
LITTLE DOVE DESIGN will be happy to work with you to create custom designs that capture the sentiment and spirit of your event.

Ink, color and impression - Ink colors on our website are a close approximation and may not be an exact match. Computer monitors may vary the colors. Ink swatches are available for a small additional fee. Please remember that letterpress is a very different process than traditional off-set printing. The color of the paper, texture and ink coverage, may produce subtle variations in color. We do our best to provide a clean, crisp and deep ink impression. However, certain complexities in type and design will effect impression levels.

Ownership - All artwork, concepts, drawings, illustrations, photography and typography whether preliminary or final, shall remain the property of LITTLE DOVE DESIGN and may not be used or reproduced by the Client without the
written permission of LITTLE DOVE DESIGN .

Right to Showcase - LITTLE DOVE DESIGN retains the right to photograph all completed designs and use photographs for publication, use on our website, exhibition, or other promotional materials. This includes but is not limited to editorial use in wedding and other trade publications.

Frequently asked questions

What is typical turn around time for custom orders?

Depending on the time of year and how involved a design is, it is best to allow six to eight weeks for design, printing, and delivery. Custom work may exceed this timeframe, so it is recommended that a consultation be made to ensure deliverables are met. On average, printing will take four weeks once design approval is given. Rush orders will be charged an additional 25% of the total package price.

International Orders

We will ship either Global Express, FedEx, or UPS. You agree to pay any associated taxes, duties, and/or customs. Please ask about international shipping rates.
