Consultations

COVID-19 UPDATE  (24-03-2020)

For obvious reasons I am not currently hosting in-person consultations. 

I am happy to chat via email, over the phone or using Skype. Even if your event isn't for some time, feel free to get in touch.

So long as my supplies are still coming in (which at the moment they are), I am working from home and continuing on as normal as possible.

COVID-19 UPDATE  (24-03-2020)

For obvious reasons I am not currently hosting in-person consultations. 

I am happy to chat via email, over the phone or using Skype. Even if your event isn't for some time, feel free to get in touch.

So long as my supplies are still coming in (which at the moment they are), I am working from home and continuing on as normal as possible.   

 



Visiting Us - SORRY, NOT CURRENTLY AVAILBLE - Please email, phone or Skype me.

To help try and keep our stationery costs down for you, we are an internet only site and do not have a regular store.  It is possible (by pre-arrangement) for you to come and visit and view some of the sample invitations with Cally and further discuss your particular requirements.  As this is most commonly requested outside of regular office hours, consultations are held at a residential address in the postcode area: CF3 2NN (between Cardiff and Newport, South Wales). 

During your time here we can sit down with a cuppa and I can show you the invitation samples, cardstocks, ribbons and embellishments.  We can discuss your particular wishes and tailor your stationery specifically for you so that it is perfect for you and your event. You are welcome to bring any friends or family members along with you that you wish. If you have your own ideas for a design, this can also be discussed during the consultation. It is a great time for any colour-matching to take place, as colours on a screen can vary slightly from the item itself.

If for any reason you decide that it isn't for you, that is perfectly fine. There is absolutely no obligation to place an order and you will never be pressured into making a decision while you are here. You will at least have had a cuppa :-) 

If you decide not to book a consultation, you can still an order an invitation sample online. We are happy to refund an invitation sample against an invitation order of 20 or more, effectively giving you a sample for free. Please note that should the sample cost exceed the cost of the actual invitation style purchased, the lower value will be refunded. 

 

Why is there a cost for a consultation?

I love meeting my clients and hosting the consultations. Unfortunately over the years there have been an increasing number of people who have arranged consultations and then do not turn up without the consideration of letting me know that they won't be able to make it. This can affect my other clients and also my family. It is for this reason that I have introduced the £5 cost for new client consultations, which is payable at the time of booking. The cost is completely refunded against a stationery order of £50 or more, so you will not lose out by coming to see me.  I am happy to try and accommodate a time to suit you, so as well as during the day, I will also try and hold consultations in the evening or at weekends, if this is easier for you. The consultation sessions usually last anything from 30 minutes up to about an hour, but can vary depending on your individual requirements.

You will be sent a text message to remind you of your consultation the day before.  If you are unable to make your consultation and can let me know with at least 3 hours notice before the appointment time, I am happy to either refund the full consultation fee for you, or rearrange to another day/time. Whichever you prefer.

If you are unable to provide 3 hours notice, or simply do not turn up, unfortunately the consulation fee will be forfeit and donated to charity. If you are running late, don't worry. Please just let me know as early as possible. I will always try and accommodate you if I possibly can. 

Contact details and full directions will be provided when arranging the consultation. 

To arrange a consultation, please email: hello@cardsbycally.com so that we can arrange a day and time to suit you, then you can go ahead and purchase the consultation here. 

I look forward to meeting you :-)

Parking and access

There is parking available on the road directly outside the address.  There is a single step into the building. The narrowest doorway into the conusltation room is approximately 72cm. 

Sorry, we do not have a disabled toilet. The toilet doorway is approximately 59cm in width.



 

Come and have a cuppa and a chat and we can tailor the stationery specifically for you.

 

Consultation costs are fully refunded against an order of £50 or more, so why not come and see the samples first-hand?  

 

There is absolutely no obligation to place an order and you will never be pressured into making a decision while you are here.
