9. How do I know you will design the stamp the way I want?
Unfortunately we are not mind readers! We rely on the information you supply to us. You can request a proof to be emailed to you before we proceed to make your stamp but the best way if it is critical it is laid out to your design, is to put it on a word document and email it to us, we can then work from this layout.
10. The stamp is wrong - what can I do?
When we design the artwork to go onto the stamp we copy exactly what you put on the order, so if you put a lower case letter at the front of your name for instance we would copy it as you have specified it in your order. If the mistake is yours (ie you made an error when you told us what you wanted), please contact us as we can produce a replacement text plate at a much reduced cost to correct the error. If the error is our fault we will supply a new text plate free of charge or give you a refund if you prefer.
