What sort of images should I send?
We recommend you send us the highest quality images that you have, ideally between 300KB-2MB in size. Low resolution images (less than 300KB) will produce a less than optimum print result.
Please only send images that you wish to see on your cards.
If scanning images please set your scanner to a minimum of 300dpi. Do not crop or alter images in any way, we will do that for you as part of our process. We will also do any red eye removal and minor blemish removals.
The fastest method is to email your photo directly to us, however we also accept photos via mail. Our postal address can be found under the Contact Us page.
We have seen some spectacular results when people pose for the invitation in a similar pose to the example on our site. So have fun, set and get snapping and remember... set your camera at one of its highest settings to make sure your files sizes are high. Happy Snapping!
Please note also that the quality of the finished product is dependent upon the quality of the image that we are sent. Once a proof is approved and production takes place, Little Dance incurs cost. If subsequently an issue is raised that is caused by an inferior image being approved by the customer, Little Dance reserves the right to recover reasonable cost incurred. This is particularly relevant for enlargements such as banners.
How many photos should I send?
If you are unsure of which photo to use you can send up to 2 photos and let us choose which will suit the best. But please, to save your time and ours please only send the photos you would like to see in the design.
Do you offer returns?
Printed product and custom productions.
Once we have your final approval we send your order to print or production immediately. At this point we cannot halt the printing or manufacturing process and your order cannot be stopped.
We do not accept returns of personalised items or custom orders.
We do not accept exchange or returns of food product under any circumstances.
If your item is damaged in transit please keep all packaging and email photos of the damaged item and packaging for our review.
If you simply "change your mind" please be aware that Little Dance is under no obligation to issue a refund and as a general rule do not offer refunds. Like any business, we incur costs during the sale and delivery process.
If however we do agree to accept a returned product please note that, just like if you purchased from a bricks and mortar store, you will need to return the product, in a resaleable condition to Little Dance at your cost.
If Little Dance does agree to accept returned product we also incur extra costs. These might include but are not limited to re stocking, cleaning, bookkeeping & data entry, and handling costs.
Such returned items will accordingly attract a reasonable re stocking fee (currently $15.00 per order) to cover these costs. This will be deducted from any refund due prior to payment.
Please also note that Little Dance does not refund the shipping incurred to send you the product in the first instance.

In some cases this may not be possible due to the size, complexity of an order or at peak times (ie Christmas or Easter), however in all cases your order will be shipped as soon as we can.
Depending on your timing, how many alterations are requested and how promptly we receive approval to print, the entire process can take as little as 3 days plus delivery time, (not including caricatures).
Non personalised items are packed and despatched on the next available packing day, provided they are a stocked item.
Special orders can take longer.
Typical delivery time frames within Australia for items sent courier are approximately seven business days from receipt of your order. This can change subject to order complexity, and when your final approval to print is received by Little Dance.
Note - delivery to Perth, Townsville and Darwin can take 3- 5 business days.
Colours may vary slightly from what you see on your screen to the finished product due to (but not limited to) different monitor settings, ambient light, monitor brands, monitor resolutions etc. Just like different television sets show different colours so do different monitors. Printing on different mediums may also create a colour variation. If you are unsure of a colour please contact us prior to ordering to discuss.
