shirleykloes' Shop Policies
Welcome. Thank you for visiting my shop. I have been designing and creating greeting cards for more than 10 years. My mom was in a nursing home and that got me to thinking that I could send her a card every week to cheer her up. Mom died in 2003 and I have been sending cards to encourage residents in nursing homes and the elderly with messages from the Bible or sayings I come across ever since.. I generally keep 300 - 400 cards on my table all the time. I do a craft event once a year. I try to make my cards look elegant. So enjoy your search. Contact me if you have any questions or if you would like custom made cards. I can put them on Etsy and reserve them under your name for you to order.
I belong to a secret stamper club. We send 2 cards every month for 6 months. We then have a pot luck dinner and reveal our name to the one we sent cards to. It's a lot of fun to get together with other stampers. A few of my friends and I get together once a month to stamp and exchange ideas and cards, too.
How did I get into stamping? My daughter, Mary, use to have a business where she made stamps and sold them wholesale to retail stores. My first stamps came from her inventory. She sent me a hugh box of stamps and I was hooked. It took several years to decide what type of cards I wanted to make. I enjoy pretty cards. My daughter doesn't have her business anymore but she does make beautiful cards.
Right now you can use Pay-Pal, or credit card for payment. If you decide to cancel please do so within 24 hours. Taxes are included in the price of the card. Handling fees are included in the postage fees.
I will ship as soon as I receive your order or on Wednesdays. If you order on a Tuesday or a Wednesday, the order may not be shipped until the following Wednesday, provided I have received payment. During the summer, especially in August I am out of town a couple of weekends but home on Wednesdays.
I ship all cards in a plastic bag to protect against moisture. If embellishments require a box so they arrive in perfect condition then I will ship in a new box. If an item needs a box to ship this will be reflected in my shipping charges. Minimum box shipping is $5.35. I try to figure for this in my shipping rates. If you have any questions, please contact me.
Refunds and Exchanges
All sales final. However, contact me, if you are not satisfied with an order we can discuss it and possibly exchange it on a one time basis. Any additional expenses will be incurred by the customer.
Additional Policies and FAQs
Generally my cards are blank for you to put your personal message. I do have verses for almost any type card. Contact me if you want a verse and I can add one of your choice. All my items are handmade, so no two items are identical. That's the beauty of the product. Please allow for slight variances from what is shown in the made to order photos. If you would like to order quantity, contact me and we can discuss. I try to make cards that can be remade. But it depends on paper availability.
Those countries I have shipping rates listed for I verified with the post office. They should be okay as is.
