GENERAL CONDITIONS 

 

The Lica design studio /Elisa Ostländer is a textile design studio that produces individual print designs based on its own 

ideas and markets its products to customers worldwide.

 

TEXTILE PURCHASING PROCESS

Once the customer has agreed to purchase a ready-made textile design, which can be done either by 

email or by signature in electronic or “wet ink” form, the purchase is deemed final. By doing so, he has 

made an “art request”.

The customer will receive the corresponding sample swatch or paper printout from lica design studio. 

A sample swatch is a piece of fabric onto which the respective design is printed.

All artworks are in repeat and color separated, ready for printing. All artworks are exclusive and unique. 

 

In the case of sales that are not concluded in person, the fabric sample swatch or paper printout will be sent 

to the address specified by the customer for this purpose.

The customer will receive a link from lica design studio through which he can download 

the relevant file as high-resolution data in, at his option, PSD, TIFF, AI, EPS, editable PDF and/or large document format. 

This can take place via lica design studio‘s website system or via an online service provider such as WeTransfer.

 

SPECIAL DEVELOPMENTS 

If customer requests special print developments, a precise briefing and deadline is needed. 

The request for a special development corresponds to an order and is billed at the price listed in the offer .
