REGARDING HANDLING/DESIGNING PROCESS OF PHOTOS/KEEPSAKES
All items to be included in the album are to be mounted in an archival-quality album, using only photo-safe adhesives, papers, accents, pens, etc. I understand that only those products labeled by reputable companies as “archival-quality”, “photo-safe”, “acid-free &/or lignin-free” will be used; and thus any resulting damage from defective products are not the liability of Lily Avenue Paper Designs (Sheri).
Unless otherwise specified, photos and memorabilia will be mounted in the album using “photo-safe” &/or “acid-free” adhesives that are considered permanent. While it may be possible to remove photos, it is not recommended, as damage to the photos will likely occur.
Unless otherwise specified, photos & memorabilia may be cut (cropped) or altered during the creative process. Sometimes during the creative process, it is more pleasing for the final layout design if unnecessary backgrounds or objects are eliminated from photos in order to draw focus to the subject of the photograph. Professional portraits will not be cropped. Embellishments may also be placed directly on photos.
In the unlikely event that photos &/or memorabilia provided are damaged by fire, flood, earthquake, hurricane, tornado or other unavoidable disaster (including, but not limited to, theft or auto accident) while in our possession, Lily Avenue Paper Designs (Sheri) is only liable for the cost of reprinted photos, if negatives &/or scanned photos are available. I understand that photos or memorabilia that are irreplaceable (i.e. no negatives exist or there are no other copies) will not be Lily Avenue Paper Designs (Sheri) liability or responsibility in any way, nor will I take any recourse. Before sending us photos for which no negatives exist, we highly recommended making a scanned copy to keep for yourself.
