Ordering Process

Consultation
Contact us here or give us a call at (281)962-1013. We’ll meet with you virtually or in person to communicate the scope of the project and your vision of the end result.

Presentation
Once we have an idea of what you’re looking for, we’ll generate a list of product options for you to choose from if you don’t already have a specific product in mind.

Estimate
A preliminary statement of the order, subject to change. Mockups can be produced at this stage to help you visualize the potential end results.

Sales Order
An official statement for you to approve final product quantities, sizes, colors, imprint methods, and in-hands date.

Design Phase
Once we finalize the sales order, we’ll start designing art for your order. If your order involves text content (such as a brochure or business cards) we ask that the client provide that information.

Feedback & Edits
Once the initial design has been developed you will receive an art review. If the design needs changes, this is the step in which that communication is passed along.

Purchase Order
When the final art has been approved we will send the order to production.

Invoice
After the order has been shipped or collected and received by the client we’ll send you an invoice for the order and close the project. Feedback and suggestions for improvement are always welcome.
