Terms & Conditions

Please note that by placing an order with MAGVA Design + Letterpress you are agreeing to our Terms & Conditions

Our promise
All our letterpress prints are printed the old fashioned way. At MAGVA Design + Letterpress we use an antique manually operated Chandler & Price dating from 1885, a Vandercook Roller Series Proof Press dating from 1929, and a Heidelberg Windmill dating from 1969. These antique presses coupled with carefully selected cotton or sustainable papers help to create a letterpress print with character and impression. We take great pride in our customers satisfaction and therefore take the upmost of care when producing our goods for them. Attention to detail and quality are our hallmarks and we promise to ensure that all goods delivered to our customers meet our standards of excellence.

Letterpress ~ A hands on craft
The nature of letterpress is such that subtle variations in inking, colour, impression and position will occur during a print run. These all combine to give each piece it’s own character and uniqueness. We promise to check each piece prior to dispatch to ensure that it meets our standards.

Please ensure that you are satisfied that letterpress printing is the right choice for you. Once an order is submitted for personalised stationery we are unable to change/cancel the order.

Making a booking ~ Your print slot
Once we have checked availability and confirmed your printing schedule a non-refundable payment of €100 will secure your calendar date (print slot) for when your stationery will be printed. This €100 will be deducted from the order total.

Proof Reading
Proof reading is the clients responsibility. MAGVA Design + Letterpress will provide a digital proof copy of the work for client approval prior to printing. Once the client is satisfied they are required to date and sign the proof and return same (a reply by email to a digital proof is also accepted).

We strongly recommend that the proof copy be viewed by more than one individual to ensure its accuracy for content details, spelling, grammar etc…

MAGVA Design + Letterpress will not be held responsible for any mistakes/errors that go unnoticed after the final proofs have been signed, such as spelling, grammar, details etc…In approving the final proof, the client accept’s responsibility for any errors that maybe noticed at a later date.

We will not accept returns or demand for refund for unnoticed errors after final proofs have been approved.

If errors are discovered after the final proof approval and the print run has started, a full reprint charge will be incurred.

Due to the unique process of letterpress printing, the cost of printing plates and the setup involved, it is not possible to create one of prints for proofing purposes. All proofs are done and completed via the supplied digital art work. This finalised and proofed art work by the client is then used to create the printing plate.
