Do you charge sales tax?
Creative Invites and Events is located in Cincinnati, Ohio so we charge Ohio Sales Tax to anything we ship to the state of Ohio.
Is it safe to charge my order to my credit card?
We do not store your credit card information on our servers and our website is encrypted to protect any information you share with us. We will never sell your information to a third party and you have to opt-in to receive any newsletters or other communication with Creative Invites and Events that are outside of processing your order. Your card will be charged once your order is placed and if we do not receive an email confirmation on your digital proof within 45 days we will refund your purchase minus a $125 design fee and any other customization charges. Our order process is a 50% retainer to begin working on your design and the remaining balance is due when you approve to print. If you are expediting your order (less than two weeks to print) then the whole balance will be due at that time.
What type of payment do you accept?
Creative Invites and Events accepts MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover.
