(Section 1) General Shop Terms of Service. Cost and Refund Policy.
  1. Purchase of listing for Digital File
    1. Unless specified otherwise on the product page, the stated product cost on the product pages of our Etsy listings is for the Digital File only.  By purchasing our product(s) on Etsy, you are paying for the cost of the design, personalization, and customization of that product within the scope of our shop terms in the customization section.  At the conclusion of a standard order, your payment on the order entitles you to receive high-resolution printable JPG file(s).
    2. We deliver the digital files via a method of our choosing between e-mail or a dropbox link.
  2. Start of work on your Project
    1. The work on your project related to your Etsy order begins only after all necessary information and photos have been received and after we’ve begun the design process of your project.
    2. Our communication with you via Etsy messenger or e-mail does not constitute start of work on an order.  Ask us as many pre-sale questions or post-sale, pre-work questions without any hesitation.
    3. However, when the design work commences on your project, your refund policy changes (see below) and the turnaround timer begins.
  3. Option for Additional Print Services

    1. You are entitled to the full refund on your order if the refund request is made prior to the start of our work on your order.
    2. If the request for refund is made after we’ve started working on your order, but before the final product is delivered, we will diagnose the progress of the order at the time the refund request was made and issue you a refund on a pro-rata basis of work completion.
    3. Due to the nature of our services, we cannot issue you a refund after the first proof of the product has been completed and delivered to you.
  5. Usage of your custom project for demonstration on our Doljabi Etsy Shop
    1. Even though the nature of your custom work may require our usage of additional time and resources, we try to not shift those costs to you, our customers. However, in instances where your custom order results in a creation of a fairly distinguishable or a new product line, and in order to assist in recovery of the additional time and resources used in creating your project, we may at our discretion choose to display your project on our Etsy shop as a product demonstration.  This helps us in avoiding usage of extra time and resources reverting the work back to the version which contained the previous assets for display on our Etsy shop.
    2. The featured projects as a product demonstration may contain photo(s) of your child.
    3. In order to maintain certain degree of privacy of your project, we may use a fake/stage name on the product demonstration featuring your project.
    4. If you wish to prevent the usage of your project as a product demonstration on our Doljabi Etsy shop, please submit the request to us in writing prior to your order. Please do keep in mind that we may need to bill you additional costs of custom work (or time incurred in reverting project assets back to prior version for product demonstration), depending on our resources used to complete your project. In this event, we will communicate to you prior to begin working on your order an accurate quote of your custom order.

  2. After your review of the initial proof, we provide a reasonable amount of minor revisions without any extra charges, as our ultimate goal is your satisfaction.  The basis for reasonable amount is determined by what’s considered to be fair by normal standards and is also based upon your conscientious effort to provide accurate details during all previous communications.  However, please do note that each revision takes time to fix and prepare.  Therefore, it is important that you provide accurate, detailed information right from the beginning.  We understand that certain details such as venue address, date and time of party can always change.  We will absolutely accommodate those changes without any issues!

Depending on the type of revision and its specific circumstances, we may or may not be able to accommodate your customization/revision request on your order.

  4. Non-minor Customizations to Template & Non-minor Revisions
    Include but are not limited to:

    1. Items that are not shown on the photos or description on the product pages which may force large alterations to the template with its inclusion.

    3. Other template changes.
    4. Change of faces for the Personalized Characters Doljabi Boards.  See more on section below 5)[e]
  5. Customization of Personalized Characters Projects and Revisions.
    1. We may or may not have a character/caricature template of your need at the time of the order.  Please inquire beforehand on whether we can accommodate certain set of personalized characters.
    2. If we’re unable to accommodate certain characters, the nature of the reason is primarily due to our inability to obtain a commercial extended license for certain vector images which allow us to sell those artworks as part of our design.  If you absolutely need certain character, please refer to the section below on “Use of Vector Images under Extended Licensing”
    3. Unless you’ve explicitly stated during your order in the order comments section or during Information submission at, we reserve the right to match your child’s face to a character/caricature at our discretion.  We select the photo(s) to be used from the pool of all photos received from you up until the point of commencing of the project.
    4. We select the photo by which we deem to be the best match for a particular character at the time. (For example, crying face photo for a rock star singer)
    5. Despite our best efforts and intention, you may not ultimately be satisfied by the match, as we understand that each person’s personalities are different.  Therefore, you are entitled to one free character revision per order, for any reason. 
    6. Each additional revision thereafter will be an additional $5.00 per character revision, which will be billed to you via as a custom order prior to working on the additional revision(s).  The work for additional revision(s) will only begin after the additional payments have been made.
    7. To avoid any problems during the production of your order, please choose your photos carefully and be proactive in assigning certain photos to specific characters prior to submitting them to us.
  6. Use of vector images under Extended Licensing
    1. If the customer absolutely needs a certain work requiring the purchase of an extended license of a vector image, and he/she consents to the payment and the purchase of the license , we would be able to accommodate the usage of virtually any artwork or any personalized character.  However, each extended license can cost anywhere between $25 – $100, and that cost will be charged to the customer.
    2. The customer that consents to the payment for an extended license to a vector image will be reimbursed in increments ($10 per sale) for each additional sale we make with the usage of that licensed vector image until the customer’s cost of purchasing the extended license is fully recovered.
  7. Custom Orders and customization of existing products
    1. Definition: Custom Order – The creation of new custom templates not existing in our product listing at the time of the order.
    2. Custom Orders may:
      1. Have different pricing structure than specified for other similar product of the same category.  A good faith estimate of the cost of your project will be communicated to you prior to the start of our work on your order.
      2. Follow a separate turnaround timeline than specified for other similar products of the same category.  A good faith estimate of turnaround time will be communicated to you prior to starting on your project.
    3. Additional custom requests which have not been communicated to us prior to the order may arise during our work on your project.  Please communicate those concerns to us immediately and we will let you know whether these additional requests can be accommodated, and how much it would cost in addition to the initial order.
    4. Custom Order Conflict with another Designer’s product.
      1. We do not perform custom template work which ends up resembling another person or another shop’s work on Etsy.  Due to the amount of time and effort involved with creating new templates, we need to be able to post the product to Etsy for additional public sales. However, when that product may resemble another designer’s product, we would not be able to list the product.
      2. By not being able to re-list for additional sales, the cost should be incurred by the time spent on custom work on an hourly basis leading to an exclusivity license, where we would not be able to sell that product to anyone else.
    5. Interference with usage of others’ intellectual properties.
      1. We DO NOT accommodate in the Custom Order any requests for, the usage of a licensed, copyrighted, and/or trademarked characters and designs including, but not limited to, Disney, Warner Bros., Nintendo, Star Wars, Dr. Seuss, etc.
      2. We DO NOT accommodate any requests for the usage of any logo depicting a brand, trademark, or a company.  We can however, use a generic capitalized letter as an alternate logo placement.
    6. As much as we’ve love to accommodate all of our customers’ requests, each non-minor customization comes with use of additional resources on our part which may conflict with your initial understanding of what you’re purchasing.
    7. We want all of the terms of our sale to be very clear to our customers, therefore we try to avoid a high degree of customization without your full understanding of the costs it may entail.

    Thank you.  We appreciate your understanding.

(Section 6) Printing and Finishing Instructions
  1. Doljanchi (Korean First Birthday) Party Invitation – Digital File Only
    1. Once we send you the initial proof and you accept the design, we will provide you with instructions on how to download the printable JPG file at 300ppi.
    2. If you have a specific print shop in mind, you must inform us of respective shops print specifications such as bleed size, color space (RGB/CMYK), and other specifications. If no specifications are provided we will prepare the default print specifications as shown on #3 below.
    3. The Printable JPG file at 300ppi will contain .25 in of additional width to allow the card design to extend past the edge of the “trim” or “cut” to allow for even cuts.  This is referred to as the bleed.
      1. The printable files have an additional .125 inch of bleed past the trim line to account for potential uneven cuts.  Safe Line covers an area where print shops guarantee won’t be cut off during the trim process.  The “trim line” will be .125 inches away from the “safe line” on all borders. Depending on the print press you use, the actual trim point can be cut anywhere in between the “safe line” and the edge of the image file (.125 in + .125 in = .25 in edge margin). However, usually the trim lines are somewhere in the middle of that at just .125 in from the edge of the image file.
