Thankfully in the thirty years that we have been in business I rarely recall a cancellation. But my advisors have mentioned that a Cancellation Policy needs to be in place…. so here goes: If you would like to cancel your order please call or email us. Our work is billed based on the work we did and any paper stock or services we may have ordered especially for you. Your order form whether online, via email, or in person is our guide for completing the order as per your request.

In addition, you may call Mrs. Olewski, the shop supervisor, at any time during your order if you have questions, or David our manager, to see how your order is coming along.

We work closely with our customers on all orders, and are in touch with them in each stage of production.

If you have additional requests, such as, shipping you order to two different locations, do not hesitate to contact our helpful staff for assistance.
