SHOP POLICIES

*•.¸♥¸.•**•.¸♥¸.•**•.¸♥¸.•* Payment*•.¸♥¸.•**•.¸♥¸.•**•.¸♥¸.•*

All payments must go through Paypal.

Here is a great article on making payments through Paypal:

Please note: By purchasing any item in my shop, you are agreeing that you have read and agreed to all shop policies and procedures. All designs in this shop are copyrighted: ©Belinda Castaneda
http://www.etsy.com/shop/akapertyfultings/policy

All payments must be paid in full within 3 DAYS of:
*committing to purchase
*custom order being posted

If you won't be able to make payment until a designated date, please convo me BEFORE I post your custom listing, and I will be sure to post it on the designated date. Once 3 days have elapsed, and payment is not made on a custom order, I will not repost the order.
If there is a deadline that you would like for me to meet, you must FIRST convo me about it so that I can let you know whether that deadline date is possible or not. If I do say it is possible, it's made on the assumption that payment is received immediately as I do not start on any project until payment is received in full.

Please be sure that at checkout, you complete the entire process. It is very common in Paypal to overlook the last few steps in completing the checkout process.

{{ DOES NOT APPLY TO JPEG FILES}}

In the U.S., photo prop signs are sent out via USPS Priority Mail.
Included with the Priority shipping will be a tracking number on your order. I will send the tracking number the day I am shipping it out.

In general, items are usually shipped out 3-9 business days after payment is received, but sometimes as soon as the next day. It really depends on the order itself AND on my workload and/or prior commitments at that time. Of course, large orders will take more time. Be sure to convo me BEFORE purchase with details of your needs (quantity of items, deadline, etc.). I will then let you know if I will be able to fulfill your requests.

Please be sure that the address you have on your Paypal & Etsy are the same. I will not be responsible for any delays or missing packages that are caused due to not having the correct address at the time that the package is ready to be shipped.
If an item gets sent back to me because of incorrect address, you will be responsible for paying another shipping cost for me to resend it.

I am currently only shipping within the United States (unless otherwise stated in listings).
INTERNATIONAL shipments are sent via USPS First Class and can take up to 5-7 weeks to be delivered once it's been shipped.

I like to recycle as much as I can, so many shipments may have reused cardboard & packing content. (re-purposed cereal boxes, mailing boxes, etc.)


*•.¸♥¸.•**•.¸♥¸.•**•.¸♥¸.•* Insurance*•.¸♥¸.•**•.¸♥¸.•**•.¸♥¸.•*

{{ DOES NOT APPLY TO JPEG FILES}}

I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR PACKAGES ONCE I HAVE SHIPPED THEM. If you would like to purchase insurance, please let me know prior to ordering so that I can add it to your listing.

INSURANCE WITHIN THE U.S. ................FREE (For up to $50 of insurance)
.................$2.45 (For $51-$100 of insurance)
.................$3.05 (For $101-$200 of insurance)

INTERNATIONAL ONLY OFFERS INSURANCE IF YOU PURCHASE EXPRESS MAIL OPTIONS......SO IT WOULD BE $50 FOR EXPRESS FLAT RATE ENVELOPE AND INSURANCE WOULD BE INCLUDED. YOU WOULD RECEIVE PACKAGE IN APPROX 3-5 BUSINESS DAYS (after it is sent).

For CANADA it would be $36.00 for EXPRESS FLAT RATE ENVELOPE WITH INSURANCE INCLUDED, AND WOULD ALSO RECEIVE IN APPROX 3-5 BUSINESS DAYS (after it is sent).

So please, if you have any reservations, please purchase insurance.
International customers.....please consider purchasing the Express flat rate to be covered.

Unless description of an item was falsely defined, or if I did not send what is on your receipt, or what was agreed to in Etsy conversations, I do not accept any other returns. You must notify me of the problem within 2 days of delivery of package, via conversation here on Etsy (not to any emails you may see on receipts or on facebook). So please be sure to READ full description of items, as I try to be as detailed as possible. If you need more information/ pictures of an item, please convo me BEFORE purchasing, and I will do my best to provide you with answers and additional pictures.

If the only remedy for the problem is a refund, then I will request that you send item back (you pay return shipping) and I will refund for product costs only, as soon as I have received returned item(s). Item(s) being returned must be postmarked with return within 3 business days of when item was received.

I cannot be responsible for any delays or missing packages that are caused due to not having the correct address at the time that the package is ready to be shipped.

I also cannot be held responsible for lost, damaged or stolen goods after I ship items. Please consider purchasing insurance with your order.

I reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.

*•.¸♥¸.•**•.¸♥¸.•**•.¸♥¸.•* KRAFT PAPER CARDSTOCK*•.¸♥¸.•**•.¸♥¸.•**•.¸♥¸.•*
This type of paper will vary in shade, texture, hue and markings. "Kraft" is the process of which they use to make Kraft paper. Here is a definition I found on Wikipedia:
Kraft paper is paper or paperboard (cardboard) produced from chemical pulp produced in the kraft process. Pulp produced by the kraft process is stronger than that made by other pulping processes; acidic sulfite processes degrade cellulose more, leading to weaker fibers, and mechanical pulping processes leave most of the lignin with the fibers, whereas Kraft pulping removes most of the lignin present originally in the wood. Low lignin is important to the resulting strength of the paper as the hydrophobic nature of lignin interferes with the formation of the hydrogen bonds between cellulose (and hemicellulose) in the fibers.

As more and more companies go out of business, I have had to scramble to find new suppliers of Kraft paper cardstock that is thick enough and suitable for making my photo prop signs. This is why I feel the need to let you know that the Kraft paper will always vary in shade and texture in my shop......not only because of the changes in suppliers, but also because of the way (process) that Kraft paper is made.
