This site may contain links to websites that are owned and/or operated third parties, and that are not under the control of Creative Design Studios. These links are provided only as a convenience. Creative Design Studios does not evaluate, review, monitor, or endorse the content of such sites and is not responsible in anyway for the information, services, products or other materials available on or offered by such sites, the accuracy of the content on such sites, and /or the privacy, security and safety practices of such sites.

We strongly recommend that content uploaded to Creative Design Studios for order fulfillment is:
- At a minimum of 300 DPI at 1:1 ratio (or 100%). Content that does not meet this standard may experience print or images that are fuzzy, pixilated or otherwise distorted for which Creative Design Studios does not accept any responsibility. We reserve the right to reject content that does not meet this standard, but we do not assume any obligation to verify that the content meets this criterion.
- Designed in CMYK and uploaded to Creative Design Studios in CMYK with no embedded color profile. (You may upload in RGB or some other standard if you choose, however, the color will be converted and Creative Design Studios is not responsible for any inaccuracy or color shift that occurs as a result of the conversion).
Creative Design Studios guarantees that its prints will meet CMYK industry standards. We cannot guarantee “match-print” color fidelity and cannot prevent slight color shift throughout an order. Because we cannot control the color reproduction of a customer’s computer monitor, we cannot guarantee that the actual print color will precisely match any preview as it appears your monitor. Creative Design Studios is not responsible for any color shift in converted photographs (RGB images) with black, near black, or gray tones. Color shifts from a perceived black or gray must be addressed prior to file submission. Proofs do not guarantee black, near black or gray final output. Please note that the application of UV coating may have an effect upon or change the appearance of printed colors. Creative Design Studios is not liable for the final color appearance of a UV coated product.
Creative Design Studios’ standard turnaround is dependent on the product ordered; if you do not specify otherwise you will be charged for standard turnaround for the relevant product.
Turnaround times do not include shipping time. The estimated date you will receive your order is a combination of the selected turnaround time and shipping time. Once your order is placed your turnaround time generally cannot be changed and billing charges will not be reversed.
For your convenience, depending on the product ordered, Creative Design Studios offers a variety of different production turnaround times. Not all of the following turnaround times are offered on every product; the available turnaround times will be listed with product as part of the order process.

If you choose group shipping this may add at least one additional day to your chosen turnaround time.
Although we endeavor to ship the quantity ordered, Creative Design Studios reserves the right to ship within 5% over or under the requested quantity. If a minimum quantity is a necessity we recommend that you adjust the total quantity ordered to account for the possibility of an under run.
Creative Design Studios has and assumes no obligation to proof or otherwise review the content or layout of your order. Even if a Creative Design Studios customer service representative has inquired as to the attributes of one of your prior orders, you are not entitled nor should you assume that Creative Design Studios will review any other order you place. Orders are printed in their “as submitted” form and the customer is fully responsible for final proof and layout verification and approval prior to submission to the print process. Creative Design Studios DOES NOT make any changes on customer files. Once you submit an order to the print process you are agreeing that you are fully satisfied with the document layout and content and you accept responsibility for any errors therein. Creative Design Studios will assume that you have verified the spelling, grammar, content and layout, etc. are all correct and it will not accept any liability for errors such as misspelling, graphics, grammar, damaged fonts, punctuation, transparency, overprint, improper layout, bleeding, erroneous cut or fold lines, die lines or crop marks, sizing, etc.
Creative Design Studios does not provide proofs of any order unless the customer requests it as part of the order process and it is an option available for the product. If you request a proof then it is your responsibility to verify the proof against the original (and to correct any spelling or grammatical errors, etc).
If a proof is requested, then your job will not be processed or deemed production ready until you have approved the proof in writing. Please be aware that this may impact the job turnaround time.
Creative Design Studios offers two options for EDDM services: Print Only and Full Service.
The EDDM products are printed for delivery to you. You may choose the have your products bundled in packs of 50 or 100, pieces or you may choose to have the entire order delivered “loose,” i.e., not bundled. If you select Print Only, we do not fulfill any of the USPS requirements for EDDM (whether Retail or Business Mail Entry Unit) products other than the bundling service; you are solely responsible for the setup and delivery of the products to the appropriate United States Postal Service (“USPS”) location. We do not select or assist in selecting the postal routes for your EDDM mailing, and we are not responsible for (and do not verify) the layout or setup of your EDDM mailing piece, including, without limitation, the sufficiency and placement of the address and mailing indicia location. Please consult the USPS website for applicable rules and guidelines for proper EDDM processing.
Full Service EDDM provides an interactive map that allows you to select USPS postal routes for your order. This information is provided on an “as is, where is” basis and Creative Design Studios makes no representation that the information is current or accurate at the time your order is placed. Once you have selected the appropriate routes, you must use the Creative Design Studios provided template (with pre-set mailing indicia) to create your EDDM mailing piece and to upload the file to Creative Design Studios. If you moved the location of the mailing indicia or address section, please verify that you have complied with USPS rules and guidelines.
Once uploaded, your EDDM order will be printed as received with the number of products needed for delivery. It will be bundled, prepared for mailing and dropped off to the USPS location closest to the Creative Design Studios production facility that is fulfilling your order. Upon delivery to this USPS location, USPS assumes all responsibility for delivery to your selected postal route(s), and your order is subject to all USPS rules, guidelines and timelines. Any delay, damage or loss occurring after delivery of your order to USPS is the responsibility of the USPS.
When you place your Full Service Order, you can select a “Target in Mailbox Date,” which is typically a minimum of twelve (12) business days from the date you place the order. The Target in Mailbox Date is an estimate based on information provided to us by the USPS. Creative Design Studios does not guarantee that your order will be delivered to your selected postal route(s) by or on a chosen Target in Mailbox Date.
If your order includes time sensitive or dated materials, we recommend that you use the Print Only option, place your order well in advance of the date needed for delivery to the USPS and select a shipping service level that ensures delivery to you by a certain date. If you decide to use the Full Service option for time sensitive or dated material, you are assuming the risk that the materials may not be delivered on time and we recommend selecting a Target in Mailbox Date that is at least 25 days from the date you place your order. A better alternative for time sensitive or dated material may be to use Creative Design Studios’ mailing service. Please contact our customer service department for more information.
The Full Service option requires the use of Creative Design Studios’ mailing indicia. We provide USPS approved templates, with the mailing indicia and address location pre-loaded, for your download and use. If you move or alter the position of the mailing indicia or address section, however, you are solely responsible for ensuring the new positioning complies with USPS requirements. We will not verify your compliance with USPS requirements when you upload the file to us for processing.
Please Note: No refunds will be given, whether you choose the Print Only or Full Service option, if the mailing indicia and/or address area do not meet USPS requirements.
From time to time Creative Design Studios may offer promotions and special offers identified by a Coupon Code. Each Coupon Code will have different requirements and rewards. Typically, you will receive a Coupon or an email that contains the Coupon Code. If you receive a Coupon or email that contains a Coupon Code, please read it carefully — all requirements stated in the Coupon or email must be met in order to receive or take advantage of the promotion or special offer. Unless otherwise stated all Coupon Codes are limited to one-time use and are limited to current Creative Design Studios account holders in good standing.
Promotions and special offers may be limited to certain account holders (e.g., they may be limited to loyalty levels or the terms may vary by loyalty level).
To take advantage of a promotion or special offer, enter the Coupon Code in the applicable field when placing an order. Not all products are eligible for promotions and special offers. If a Coupon Code does not function when entered, it means the product at issue does not qualify for the promotion or special offer; this determination is final.
A Coupon Code may not be combined with any other promotion, special offer, discount or reward offered by Creative Design Studios (including Rewards Points redemption). If you enter a Coupon Code or take advantage of a promotion, special offer, discount or reward (including Coupon Codes issued for Rewards Points redemption), you will not be able to enter another Coupon Code or take advantage of any other promotion, special offer, discount or reward.
Coupon Codes only apply to products ordered through Creative Design Studios’ website; they may not be used in conjunction with the purchase of products sold by or under the brands of third parties (including, Creative Design Studios affiliates and/or websites linked to any existing Creative Design Studios website). Coupon codes can not be applied to custom orders.
Coupon Codes cannot be used to pay for taxes, shipping and handling or other charges. If the promotion or special offer has a minimum purchase requirement, taxes, shipping and handling and other charges do not apply towards the minimum purchase amount.
If a promotion or special offer is for a defined amount (e.g. $10.00 off) and applies to a multiple- item order (e.g., multiple sets of business cards), it will be allocated to each eligible item based on the proportion of the item’s value to the total value of all eligible items, excluding shipping and handling, taxes and other charges. Certain items may not be eligible for the promotion and will not be included in the calculation.
Promotions and special offers are only valid for a limited time. They will expire on the date or within the timeframe specified in the offer. If no date or timeframe is specified, a promotion or special offer is valid until the end of the month is which the Coupon Code is first eligible for use.
Coupon Codes (and the Coupons or emails that contain them) are not for resale, have no independent cash value, are not redeemable for cash, and will not be replaced if lost, stolen or deleted.
Coupon Codes will not be retroactively applied against orders already placed with Creative Design Studios.
If a Coupon Code is used and the entire order is cancelled or rejected, or if you return all items in the order then, subject to the terms of our Returns/Refund/Reprint Policy, you will be refunded only the actual amount paid. The coupon code will no longer be valid.
If only part of your order is cancelled or rejected, or if you return only some of the items in your order, then subject to the terms of our Returns/Refund/Reprint Policy, the relevant discount or promotion will be applied to the item(s) that are kept. The foregoing notwithstanding, under no circumstances will a promotion or special offer of any kind be applied to create a credit balance. If the balance of a partially canceled, rejected or returned order is less than the value of the promotion or special offer, the promotion or special offer will be applied to the outstanding balance (not including shipping and handling, taxes and other charges). The balance of the promotion or special offer is void, and the Coupon Code will no longer be valid.
Creative Design Studios reserves the right to discontinue a promotion or special offer or coupon at any time and with immediate effect.

In the event you make one or more changes to an existing order that incur additional charges, those charges will be applied to the credit card that was used for the original order, or to an alternative credit card that you provide to us.

Since at least 2010, Creative Design Studios has accepted and absorbed raw material price hikes from vendors and escalations in personnel and distribution costs. Our drive to create efficiencies in production has enabled us to resist the need to pass these price increases along to our customers.
It should come as no surprise that we are continuing to see increases in material, labor and distribution costs.

Shipping & Refund/Reprint Policy
We reserve the right to update and revise these Shipping Policy and Guidelines without prior notice to reflect changes in our policies, services and/or in response to our customers’ feedback. When we do make changes to this Policy, we will revise the “last updated” date at the top of this Policy. Please make sure that you review it frequently as anytime you place an order with Creative Design Studios the current Shipping Policy and Guidelines will apply.
Creative Design Studios offers several shipping options, including FedEx and UPS or their related services. Our standard shipping level (“Standard Shipping”) is by ground or economy shipping. Shipping rates will be presented based on what should be the most efficient option available for your order, but you may elect to use an alternative method of shipping during the ordering process
If you have dated or time sensitive material please plan accordingly; leave plenty of time to receive your order. We strongly suggest that in such circumstances you do not rely on Standard Shipping delivery.
Our shipping charges are based on the rates charged by the carrier, as they may vary from time to time. Saturday delivery is available at an additional charge. Please contact our shipping department for more information regarding Saturday shipping. All orders are shipped FOB shipping point, which means ownership and risk of loss transfers to you once we deliver the order to our shipping carrier. If you elect to pick up your order, ownership and risk of loss will transfer to you when you (or your agent) take possession of the order. If you take advantage of our local delivery option, ownership and risk of loss will transfer to you when you (or your agent) accept delivery, or when we leave the order if delivery without a signature has been authorized.
Unfortunately, we cannot use a customer’s personal account with UPS, Fed Ex or any other carrier.
The estimated delivery time for any given shipment will vary according to the method of shipping you choose and/or by your location. Please note that although we strive to meet the estimated delivery times, because we use a third-party shipping service, we are not able to guarantee a specific delivery date or time. If you have time sensitive materials, please make sure you allow sufficient time to receive your order.
When you place an order, you will be provided with the Creative Design Studios production site where your order will be processed. We have company owned production sites located across the U.S. and your job will generally be allocated to provide the most efficient shipping based on your chosen delivery location. Certain product offerings, however, require production at a specific production sites and the shipping time and charges will be calculated based on that location.
For Standard Shipping to a delivery point within the United States, you can use our Shipping Maps to estimate your package arrival from the time of shipment. Select the Shipping Map that corresponds to the shipping carrier and production site you are provided with at the time of your order. Please Note: these Shipping Maps only provide you with an estimate of the delivery date; we do not guarantee delivery on the date indicated. Also, when estimating your package arrival, the time frame denoted on the Shipping Maps does NOT include the day of pickup by the carrier or the order turnaround time.
If you select a shipping service level other than Standard Shipping the delivery date will correspond to the service level chosen. Again, the delivery date does not include the day of pickup. If you select the relevant shipping carriers 3 Day, 2nd Air Day, Next Day Air, or some other special delivery level (or their equivalent) this means that the shipper is guaranteeing its shipping service within the time period selected. Note that only these special accelerated shipping services are guaranteed within the time frames given. Standard Shipping is NOT guaranteed to deliver within the estimated arrival time.
Your estimated shipping time is in addition to the order turnaround time you selected during the order process. Add the turnaround time and estimated shipping time together to estimate the actual delivery date. Click here for the turnaround time choices.
Creative Design Studios will ship to a destination outside of the United States; however, it may be necessary to separately estimate the shipping method and costs. You may be able to enter the destination in order to receive an estimate of the shipping costs, but you should contact Creative Design Studios (or the shipping carrier) to receive an estimate of the shipping time involved. All pricing for international shipments is in U.S. dollars. Our pricing includes product and shipping costs only; customs duties and other costs incurred as a result of international shipping are in addition to our costs and you are separately responsible for these costs. We reserve the right to refuse to ship to certain international locations. Please contact our Shipping Department for more information regarding international shipping.
We reserve the right to change the site initially allocated to the production of your order. (For example, equipment failure, natural disaster or order volumes may impact our production capacity requirements necessitating a change in site). Should this happen, you may be informed by email and it may impact your estimated shipping time, etc. You can check our Shipping Maps for the estimated transit time from the new production site.
Our shipping process cannot generally accommodate the aggregation of multiple print orders for shipping purposes; each discrete product ordered will be shipped separately, will require a separate shipping charge, will have its own estimated shipping time, and may arrive on a different date to other products you have ordered. If you are ordering multiple products, it is possible that these may also require different production sites and the estimated shipping time may vary for each separate product. If you are ordering a specially priced package of products, there will be only one shipping charge incurred, however, the individual products may be shipped separately and arrive at different times. If the receipt of multiple products is time sensitive, please plan accordingly as we cannot guarantee that multiple product orders will be received on the same delivery date.
Limited Group Shipping
For certain limited product lines we are able to consolidate multiple orders for group shipping. The Product Builder page will indicate if group shipping is available on your product order.
- The following rules apply to group shipping orders:
- Orders must all be placed at the same time;
- Maximum run size per order (see specific product for details);;
- Group shipping must be designated at time of order;
- All orders must be same product type;
- All orders must have same turnaround time (NOTE: Same day turnaround is not available on group shipping);
- Each order must be for the same quantity (e.g., 1,000 business cards);
- Order must go to same address;
- Order must have same contact person.
- Choosing group shipping may add at least one day to your chosen turnaround time. Please factor this into you order time.
- If one or more jobs in the group of orders designated for group shipping is delayed, for any reason, all jobs within the same group will be held and delayed until all jobs are complete.
We recommend that you do not choose group shipping for any job that has a time sensitive deadline.
- The due date for all jobs designated for group shipping will be determined by the time of the final approval of the last approved job within the group. If an order for six jobs is placed on a Monday and they are designated for group shipping, but one or more of the jobs are not approved until Wednesday, then the turnaround time and due date will be calculated as if all jobs were approved on Wednesday.
- Once a group of orders has been designated for group shipping we cannot release any part of the order from the group for an alternative mode of shipping (earlier or later).
- A change to the shipping service or address can be made through the link on the site up to the point of bindery only.
We recommend that you do not choose group shipping for any job that has a time sensitive deadline.
Orders that exceed size or weight limitations for the selected delivery level may be divided into multiple boxes. Your order confirmation and/or product tracking information will reflect the number boxes you can expect for your order. If your order is divided into multiple boxes, each box will incur a separate shipping charge and we cannot guarantee that all of the boxes will be received on the same day.
Because our carriers generally do not ship to a Post Office box, it is your responsibility to verify that an actual street address has been entered, and that it is the correct and accurate address (including zip code) for your delivery. Economy Shipping does ship to residential and Post Office Box addresses; however, a correct and accurate address is required. We strongly recommend that you include a telephone contact number in your shipping information. We are not responsible for any delays, losses or increased delivery charges caused by mistaken or incorrect delivery addresses. We are not responsible for any delays or losses of product once the product is delivered to the carrier for shipment.
Please verify that your payment information has been correctly entered. Shipments may be delayed because of improper credit card information and we are not responsible for any delay or loss associated with this.
Holidays may affect and delay your shipping times. Please take holidays into account when estimating your package delivery time.
If a package is not delivered due to a customer refusal (which would include a failure to pick up the product from the carrier, if applicable) or an error made by the customer, e.g., not submitting the proper shipping address, it may cause the package to be reshipped (with the corrected address if applicable), and you will be charged an additional shipping fee for this reshipment. You may also incur additional fees as a result of the inability of the carrier to deliver the order, as well as return fees. Even if you decline to have a product reshipped, you will continue to be responsible for the product cost, original shipping and any additional fees incurred as a result of the product being returned, and you consent to these fees being charged against the credit card used for the transaction.
If, after placing an order, you wish to change the shipping address you may do so up until the time the order is out for delivery. Each time that you request that we intercept and transport an order to a new shipping address (i.e., other than the one currently chosen) you will incur an administrative fee of at least twelve dollars and thirty-five cents ($12.35) as well as any increases in the shipping fees and other charges UPS may impose. You consent to these fees and charges being charged against the credit card used for the transaction.
We will make every effort to adhere to the estimated shipping schedule and delivery date for your order. However, equipment failures, technical problems, shipping delays and other problems beyond our control may delay the printing and delivery process. Under such circumstances rush charges and other production fees may be waived or refunded as applicable, however, such delays are not grounds for cancellation of an order. By placing an order with Creative Design Studios you are agreeing that we are not responsible or liable for, and no refund, cancellation or credit will be due as a result of shipping company delays, acts of God, weather conditions, environmental or dangerous goods incidents, perils of the air, public enemies, public authorities acting with actual or apparent authority, acts or omissions of customs officials, authority of law, quarantine, riots, strikes, work stoppages or slowdowns, or other labor disputes or disturbances, civil commotions or hazards incident to a state of war, local or national disruptions in ground or air transportation networks or systems due to events beyond our control, disruption or failure of communication and information systems, disruption or failure of utilities, international customs issues, any other circumstances that are beyond our direct control.
Please take note that if you choose a residential address as your delivery address the carrier will typically not require a signature at the time of delivery and the package may be left at the address. If you require a delivery signature, please contact Customer Service.
We reserve the right to update and revise this Returns/Refund/Reprint Policy without prior notice to reflect changes in our policies, services and/or in response to our customers’ feedback. When we do make changes to this Policy we will revise the “last updated” date at the top of this Policy. Please make sure that you review it frequently as any time you place an order with Creative Design Studios the current Returns/Refund/Reprint Policy will apply.
We guarantee that our printed products will not be defective in accordance with industry standards. You may contact our Customer Service Department and a Creative Design Studios representative will be pleased to help address any general issues you may have with your print job.
If you believe your print job is defective or has not otherwise met your requirements please contact Creative Design Studios, IN WRITING via the online support system, within six (6) business days of receiving your order. If you do not contact us within this time frame we will assume that your job was satisfactory upon receipt and will be under no obligation to provide a refund or reprint. Once you have contacted us, we will then have five (5) business days to determine if a reprint or refund is appropriate, or to advise you that more information is needed to process your inquiry. If we request additional information to verify an inquiry and it is not provided within a reasonable time, we will be under no obligation to provide a refund or reprint. If we determined that a product is in fact defective or has not otherwise met our obligations, one of the following two resolutions will be offered:
- We will reprint the print job with rush production.
- We will refund the original order price.
We reserve the right to request samples of any allegedly defective merchandise prior to either of the above resolutions being agreed to.
A Customer Service representative will generally contact you within 24-48 hours of us making the determination that a reprint or refund is appropriate in order to confirm the approved solution. If you do not make contact with our representative within five (5) business days of their first attempt to contact you with the approved solution we will assume that the issue has been otherwise resolved and no reprint or refund will be given. Once the approved solution is agreed then, unless we agree otherwise, you must return the entire original print order to us, at the address provided by our Customer Service representative, within 15 calendar days after the date the solution is approved. If you do not return it within this time frame you agree that the original order will be charged against your credit card on file with Creative Design Studios.
A refund or reprint will only be possible after an approved solution has been authorized and, unless we agree otherwise, provided that the entire original print order has been returned to and received by us.
When applicable, a refund will be issued within 10 business days of our receipt of the original product order.
A reprint will begin rush production within one (1) business day of our confirmed receipt of the product or such earlier time as we may agree to.
