Does this seem a little ridiculous to anyone else?
We are trying to order our STDs (and eventually, our invites) through Catprint. They sent us a hard-copy proof of our STD, but the front image was all pixelated and weird. So FI (a graphic designer) tweaked the image so it wouldn’t pixelate if stretched and sent it back to them, requesting another proof to make sure it looks right. Catprint said they could, but for TEN BUCKS. Our entire order is like 30 bucks. Ten bucks to send ANOTHER postcard? That just seems insane. We don’t know what to do. I don’t want to pay the $10 but I don’t want to print all 90 STDs just to have them look bad. FI is so mad he doesn’t even want to use them for our invites anymore.

It’s a ridiculously high for one print, but compared to how much the rest of your order comes it seems like you’re saving a lot of money already anyway. Personally I think it would be worth it to make sure that your entire order won’t come out wonky again.

@elysion: I know, it’s just kind of the principal of the thing to me. That just seems so crazy! What happens when we order our invites and we need more than one HCP to make sure they’re perfect?
I emailed them back saying I thought that was high, we only want a gaurantee that they won’t be pixelated and now I’m wary of ordering my invites through them. We’ll see what they say.

Geeze, Vistaprint only charges $2 for a hard copy, but you can get a free PDF proof from them, too. $10? That really blows.

@vorpalette: How do you get proofs from VP? I could never figure that out.

It does seem high but they outline the $10 charge on their website. Considering the first proof was free, just think of it as $5 per proof.

It seems very reasonable to me, since I ordered my invitations from Crane (through a retailer), and I had to pay $20 for each additional proof. I realize it sounds like a lot, given the overall price of your order. However, if I were you, I would want to know that the invitations were going to turn out the way I wanted them to, rather than risk having them arrive in a manner that did not meet my expectations.
