    Tradition with a twist!

    Emily Jane Mavridoglou, founder and designer of Dorothy Jane Design, has always had a passion for design, letterpress and all things paper. She loves seeking out boutique shops to find unique stationery for her handwritten notes. This began as a little girl, exchanging letters with her grandmother, Dorothy Jane. Dorothy beautifully hand wrote every letter to Emily. It is only fitting that Emily’s dream be named after her, Dorothy Jane, a passionate and loving woman who told Emily she could accomplish whatever she wanted to do in life (because she had the brains and a heart!).

    After working in the design industry for 10 years, Emily found that she wanted to do something more meaningful in her life, something that would bring joy to other people’s lives. Nothing made her happier than designing her own wedding stationery suite and putting it together by hand. With a little encouragement from friends and family, Emily set out to live her dream.

    Emily’s designs are as unique and personal as each of her clients. All of her cards are handmade with careful attention to detail and craftsmanship. Emily loves bold pops of color, polka dots and sparkles. Emily’s a stickler for tradition and etiquette, but loves to add a personal twist in the details. After all, she wore green shoes on her wedding day!

    10. Nature of Product
    Custom paper goods are made by hand, which may result in slight irregularities and inconsistencies. These variations include, but are not limited to, paper dimensions, ink color and embellishments. Designer strives at all times to provide accurate representations and display our products and goods. However, depending on the monitor settings, web browser, printer and printer inks, etc., previewed and final products and goods may slightly vary. Designer does not guarantee exact color match between the Final Proof for Print Approval as it appeared on Client’s monitor or as printed by Client and the products or goods as delivered. Products and goods produced by letterpress may have variations in color, registration and depth of impression due to the nature of antique letterpress printers. Products and goods produced by digital machines may have variations in placement, which include but are not limited to; center of page and the slope of the design or type. Any such variations add to the uniqueness and beauty of the product and are not considered an error or defect. Such variations will not entitle Client to replacement or a refund.

    11. Inspection by Client
    Client shall be responsible for promptly and thoroughly inspecting all products or goods in their printed/assembled form upon pickup from Designer or upon receipt of shipment. Client must inform Designer of any issues or concerns, such as missing or damaged products or goods within forty-eight (48) hours of pickup or receipt. Failure to timely inform Designer of any such issues or concerns within that inspection period shall constitute final approval and acceptance of the products and goods and a waiver of any deficiencies or flaws in the products or goods, whether or not such deficiencies or flaws may be the responsibility of Designer.

    If a products or goods are deemed to be defective due to the fault of Designer, with respect to a deficiency or flaw identified and brought to Designer’s attention during the foregoing inspection period, then, as Client’s sole remedy, Designer will reprint the defective products or goods at no charge to Client. All defective products and goods must be returned to Designer in their entirety within 7 days of pickup or receipt.

    12. Cancellation
    In the event Client desires to cancel any Services in this Agreement after the Design Deposit has been paid, the following terms and conditions shall apply:

    Cancellation Prior to Proofs. If Client provides notice to Designer that Client desires to completely cancel the Agreement prior to the submission of the Initial Proof to Client, the non-refundable Design Deposit shall be retained by Designer. If Client provides notice to Designer prior to the submission of the Initial Proof to Client that Client desires to cancel only a part of Services to be provided under this Agreement (e.g., cancellation of certain items or elements specified in the Addendum, such as the elimination of enclosures or ceremony programs), of a partial cancellation prior to the Initial Proof(s) for the cancelled item(s) being submitted to Client, the non-refundable Design Deposit shall be retained by the Designer but the estimated Fee may then be adjusted to reflect the reduction in work associated with the cancelled item(s).

    Cancellation After Proofs. If Client provides notice to Designer that Client desires either to completely cancel the Agreement or to cancel only a part of Services to be provided under this Agreement at any time after submission of any Proof to Client, but prior to Final Approval, then, in addition to Designer’s retention of the non-refundable Design Deposit, Client will be responsible for immediate payment to the Designer for the time incurred for Services performed by Designer prior to the cancellation, as well as for the costs of supplies ordered prior to cancellation (such as paper, envelopes, ribbons, boxes, etc.). Payment for such time and expenses for any partial or complete cancellation shall be in an amount, to be determined by Designer, that represents the time and expenses incurred that are allocable to the cancelled Services and that are in excess of the relevant portions of the previously paid Design Deposit. Payment of any Fee determined to be due upon complete or partial cancellation shall be made within ten (10) days after Designer determines and notifies Client of the amount due as a result of the Client’s notification of cancellation.

    Cancellation After Final Approval. No refund of any Fee paid will be made after Final Approval is given by Client.
    Design Agreement
    This Design Agreement (herein the “Agreement”) is made between Emily Mavridoglou, doing business as Dorothy Jane Custom Stationery & Design located in Lancaster, Pennsylvania (herein “Designer”), and the Client (herein “Client,” who together with Designer are the “Parties,” and each is a “Party”). This Agreement sets forth the terms and conditions which govern each transaction between Designer and Client with respect to the purchase and sale of design services, the creation of stationery or other custom paper goods by Designer, and any related production services provided or to be provided by Designer to Client.

    1. Services, Designs and Products
    Pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, Client hereby engages the Designer to provide design and production services for the creation and/or production of designs, stationery and other paper goods (herein collectively referred to as the “Services”) specified in further detail in the Design Specifications Addendum (the “Addendum”). The Addendum is made a part of this Agreement and is incorporated herein by reference. Designer agrees to provide such Services to Client in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, in exchange for payment by Client of the costs and fee described immediately below. This Agreement, including the Addendum may be modified only upon mutual agreement of the Parties in the manner set forth further below.

    2. Fee
    The Estimated and Final Fee: The Designer’s good faith estimate of the component parts of the total fee (herein the “Fee”) for the Services to be provided are set forth in the Addendum at the time of the execution of this Agreement. The estimated initial Fee set forth in the Addendum is valid for fourteen (14) days after presentation to Client. After acceptance, the estimated initial Fee for the Services may be increased or decreased in accordance with changes made to elements of the Services, including, but not limited to, the overall design scheme, papers and finishings chosen, other material costs and printing methods, and other unanticipated variations in the Designer’s costs, with all changes subject to the provisions of Section 5, herein, and any cancellation subject to the provisions of Section 12, herein. Client shall be informed of the final Fee prior to the printing of the Designs. Payment by Client of the total of the adjusted final Fee is required prior to printing, as set forth in Section 3, herein.

    Additional Costs: Unless specifically included and estimated in the Addendum, any and all outside costs, such as work performed by other vendors and contractors, and including, but not limited to, artwork and font licenses, custom calligraphy and finishing work such as die cutting and edge painting, will be separately estimated to Client for approval prior to printing and will be added to the final Fee.

    Sales Tax: The Services may be subject to sales tax depending on the residence of Client. Sales tax will be added to the final Fee and paid by the Client. All sales made within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania currently are subject to a 6% sales tax.

    Rush Charges: The Fee for Designer’s Services is based on normal and reasonable design and production schedules. Accordingly, knowledge of Client’s schedule requirements is essential to Designer’s ability to provide an accurate estimate of the Fee. In certain circumstances, a special charge for an expedited (“rush”) schedule may be included in the Addendum or added after the Agreement is signed. Services required to meet a rush schedule typically are billed at the rate of $75 dollars ($75.00) per hour. To the extent possible, Designer will advise Client in advance of any required rush charges to meet Client’s requested completion date.

    3. Payment
    Client agrees to payment of the Fee in two installments as follows:

    Non-Refundable Design Deposit: A Design Deposit will be due and paid by Client upon the execution of this Agreement. The amount of the Design Deposit will be stated in the Addendum and vary in accordance with the nature of the required Services and the amount of the estimated Fee. The Design Deposit is not refundable. Both this signed Agreement and the non-refundable Design Deposit must be received by Designer in order to commence Services.

    Remaining Balance: The Remaining Balance is the difference between the Design Deposit and the total of the final Fee after all adjustments have been made. The final fee will be set forth in an invoice delivered to the client prior to printing. The Remaining Balance will be due and paid upon Final Print Approval, prior to printing.

    Methods of Payment: Payment may be made via check, cash or credit/debit card. We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. Acceptable alternative payment methods include Paypal or Etsy gift cards. Checks shall be made payable to Emily Mavridoglou and mailed to: 850 Stonebridge Drive, Lancaster, Pennsylvania 17601. A charge of forty dollars ($40.00) will be assessed for any returned check and all subsequent payments must be made in cash, or by cashier’s check or money order.

    4. Completion Date and Proof Process
    Completion Date: The Designer will provide to the Client a final estimated completion date for the Services at the time of the payment of the Design Deposit. The completion date for any Services that require the delivery of products or goods to Client is the date upon which such products or goods become available for pickup or shipment. Any delay in the completion of the Services that are not the fault of the Designer, including any delay by the Client in communicating with Designer (including, but not limited to, any delay in providing copy/wording, approval or other input regarding the Services); any unusual transportation/shipping delay affecting Designer’s ability to provide the Services; unforeseen emergencies other circumstances experienced by Designer not constituting an incapacitation as provided in Section 14, herein; or other circumstances beyond the control of the Designer, shall entitle Designer to a reasonable extension of the estimated completion date as may be necessary as a consequence of any such delay.

    Proof Process: Following initial consultations and preliminary discussions with Client, Designer will provide either a Collection Design set or a Custom Design set, as follows:

    Collection Design. One (1) initial digital design proof (“Proof”) and one (1) additional digital Proof to allow for revisions, and one (1) Final Proof for Print Approval.

    Client Responsibility for Review of Proofs. All Proofs will be provided in electronic PDF format. It is suggested that Client print all Proofs in order to properly review them for accuracy and feedback to Designer. Client is solely responsible for proofreading, identification of typographic or other errors in Proofs, and verification of accuracy with respect to all information contained in the Proofs, including, but not limited to, names, dates, times, locations and spelling. If Client requires correction of any such errors after approval for printing, Client shall be responsible for all fees and costs as necessary to remedy such errors.

    Timeliness of Client Review of Concept and Proofs. Client agrees to timely review all Concepts and Proofs within the period allowed for such reviews, and to promptly either (a) approve the Proofs or (b) provide to Designer written comments and required corrections that adequately and sufficiently identify Client’s concerns, objections or the desired corrections. Designer’s ability to meet the estimated schedule is dependent upon Client’s prompt performance of this review obligation.

    Client’s Review and Final Approval of Proofs. The Final Proof for Print Approval of the Designs will be sent to Client via email for approval prior to printing. Client must thoroughly review the final Proofs, and send the Designer written approval to print (“Final Approval”). Final Approval constitutes agreement by the Client that the spelling, layout and content of the order is correct and that Client has performed the obligation to review as specified above.

    5. Changes and Reprints
    Any changes by Client in requested Services after the Design Deposit is paid, whether with respect to the paper stock, number of inks, additional pieces of stationery or ink colors, may require additions to the Fee. Any changes made at any point after printing has commenced that would require the reprinting of any items will require additions to the Fee, both for the revision and for any reprinting. Designer will inform Client in writing of any additional Fee for such changes prior to the commencement of the production or reprinting relating to such changes. For any increase totaling more than ten percent (10%) of the initial or adjusted final Fee, Client will be required to sign an amended Addendum specifying the changes and the additional Fee prior to commencement of production or reprinting relating to such changes.
