You will receive one complimentary proof via e-mail. Proofs may appear to look slightly different on screen. Please review the proof carefully to ensure that all information is accurate. Note proof colors may vary slightly from your final printed product. Carefully read the Color Variation section. Your final approval is needed before printing will begin. Once the proof is accepted, Couture Envelopes is not responsible for errors or changes.

Color Variation & Quality Control
Ink lots, paper stocks, environmental conditions, various calibrations of browsers and monitors may alter the visual appearance of colors. Due to uncontrollable variables in the process, final colors can vary from samples and proofs. As this is a natural occurrence, no discounts will be given for variations. We take pride in delivering a high-quality product. If you have any questions or concerns about color or variations, please feel free to call or e-mail us prior to ordering. Also note that each product is handmade and may vary.

All designs are as is. Expectations include incorporating type where necessary and possibly removing or covering a portion of your illustration.

Photo Submission
You may submit your photos in one of several ways: upload a digital image to, supply us with a CD or mail us a copy of your graphic. 

The overall quality of the final product depends greatly on the original graphic supplied to Couture Envelopes. Please carefully read the Color Variation section. Call and we can help you choose the best method for you. Color correction and photo retouching may result in additional charges. All original photographs must be clearly labeled and will be returned. Couture Envelopes is not responsible for the loss of or damage of any materials provided to Couture Envelopes.

You can digitally submit a photo in JPEG and TIFF. Certain camera RAW files will work and may be sent, but note those files might be too large. If your file is in a different format or you are uncertain we can take it in the form you have, call and we can discuss options.

There is no need to size your photo before sending it. Our designers will make necessary changes to fit your photo.

Be sure your picture is larger than the space on your chosen envelope to allow for cropping.

Be aware of how your photo will fit in the space. For example, a vertical photo is a poor choice for a horizontal space. As a rule, envelopes are horizontal. That said we can place a graphic on an envelope vertically should you like that or we can custom crop your graphic to show horizontally.

Photographs may be converted to black and white at no extra charge. Note converted photos will not have the same contrast as an original black and white print.
