Hello and welcome! We offer original invitations and party printables for your celebrations. Please take a look around to see if we can help with your next party!

Sign up to our mailing list and receive a coupon code for 10% off your first order of US$20 or over: http://eepurl.com/bq3yTX

Rush order supplement here:- http://etsy.me/1JPVatV (to be purchased in addition to the invitation listing).

Matching items such as files for thank you cards, favour tags, a welcome sign etc are available to match all invitations. Please see here:- http://etsy.me/227I0T5 or ask me for further details.

I currently offer DIY printable files only (no printing). This means you are purchasing a customised digital file (jpeg or pdf). You only need to buy "1" file. I will do the customising for you so you will need to send me over the text. You can put this in the box at checkout or send it via Etsy message or to my email (whichever is easier for you). If you are buying an invitation file with space for a photo, please email me the photo: photos [at] dulcegrace.com (or to the email address on your invitation receipt).

If you will be printing as a photo print, I would suggest you buy the 6x4 (or 4x6!) size. If you want to print onto cardstock then 5x7 offers you more printing options (for USA customers). The invitations shown in the listing pictures are all 5x7 size. 4x6 has a different aspect ratio (different proportions) so I generally charge a little more to cover the time I spend re-sizing your file to a 4x6.

I send invitation draft files via Etsy message only for your confidence and security. I am happy to email the final invitation file to wherever you request.

Oh, and I spell customising with an "s" as I am British :)

If you want to change honoring to honouring or mom to mum that is absolutely fine.

In general, my invitations can be adapted for use for any non-commercial event, as long as the layout and number of words will stay the same. So if you are looking for a baby shower invite but don't see exactly what you are looking for, be sure to look at my bridal shower invites too. A change such as this ("Bridal" to "Baby") wouldn't be chargeable. If your use would need a change of layout then this might be chargeable - please contact me for details.

I am happy to make your invite files in Spanish (customer to provide text) as long as this is not longer than the English equivalent - please ask me to check over your text if you are not sure. I ask all communication with me to be in English however - se debe hablar inglés.

I'm also happy to make the files in Portuguese (again, customer to provide text) as long as this is not longer than the English wording. Again, please send over the wording ahead of purchase if you are not sure. Obrigada!

Where can I print my invitations in the USA?
I will put some links below for cardstock printing services (these are NOT affiliate links). These services will print and cut the invitations and most include envelopes too.

You could also print as a photo or 2 per page onto cardstock at an office supply store, or as a photo print, or employ the services of a local professional printing company.

How long will it take for my file to be ready?
Current turnaround time for matching party printables DRAFTS is 2-3 BUSINESS days. Draft files (proofs) are sent via Etsy message only. You should then allow a further BUSINESS day for your final or revised file.

A business day is Mon, Tues, Weds, Thurs or Fri. I do work on Saturday mornings but apart from this I try to switch off from work over the weekend.

What if there is an error in the proof or I need to change something?
All invitation listings include 2 rounds of revisions (so a further 2 draft files) to correct typos/ spellings or change words. It may not be possible to include more text after the draft has been issued and for this reason it is very important that you provide all text before the issue of the first draft.

Draft files after the 2 rounds will be chargeable (but this very rarely happens that a client needs more than 2 rounds of revisions). After you have "approved" the draft file and I have prepared you the final file for printing, changes will be chargeable.

I welcome enquiries about custom work.

Please note I have another shop on Etsy too - www.dulcegracedesigns.etsy.com

Everything I make or design, I do with love. Hecho con cariño! I've always loved designing and creating things, and working with my hands. The digital age has not changed this at all - it has just given me more mediums to work with!

About

follow your heart

Originally from Europe, a series of serendipitous events took me to live in the heart of South America.

Again, a series of serendipitous events brought me back to my first love - graphic design.

Which brought me here to Etsy. I love designing beautiful and functional graphics of all types.

My inspiration is my upbringing where I learned the beauty of items with a history, and the importance of not wasting things.

I'm combining my passion for designing with 10 years of customer service experience and aim for 100% client satisfaction.

If you have received an order number from Etsy (this will be a 9 digit number beginning with 1) then your order HAS BEEN RECEIVED! As long as you have provided me with all your desired text (either in the notes to seller box - please check your receipt) or via Etsy message or email then no further action is required by you at this time. I will provide your proof (draft file) in 3 business days (roughly 72hrs Mon - Friday) via Etsy message.

Current turnaround time for matching party printables DRAFTS is 2-3 BUSINESS days. Draft files (proofs) are sent via Etsy message only. You should then allow a further BUSINESS day for your final or revised file.

  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Buy with Apple Pay
  • Pay with Sofort
  • Pay with iDeal

Payment
Payment via Paypal (you don't need a Paypal account to checkout via Paypal) or credit/ debit card via the Etsy website direct checkout.

If you have a coupon code, please be sure to put this in the little box at checkout (where it says "apply shop coupon code" or similar"). Before checking out, please double-check that that discount has been taken off your total.

Cancellations and refunds are not available after the first proof has been issued.

If paying by echeck, I reserve the right to delay sending a proof until the funds have cleared in my paypal account. This may mean a delay of a week in receiving your proof.
Shipping
all items are sent electronically therefore no shipping payment is necessary.

Files will normally be delivered via email (to your Etsy registered email address unless otherwise requested).

If you have ordered several files or large files then I will most likely upload these to a dropbox/ vault and send you the link to where you can download them.
Refunds and Exchanges
Cancellations and refunds are not available after the first proof has been issued.

In the very unlikely event that your final file has technical problems that mean it does not print well, I will work with you to remedy this issue.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am not able to provide proofs before purchase.

The turnaround times listed in my shop announcement refer to the timescale after receiving the later of:-
a) cleared payment
b) all necessary information (including photo, if applicable)

The current turnaround time for the proof (draft) file is 3 business days.

All proofs are sent via Etsy convo only.

Your purchase price includes ONE (1) final file. If you require 2 types of files, or need 2 files eg with different start times, then this will be chargeable. Please inquire before purchase.

I send jpeg or PDF files only. Source files eg AI or PSD are not available under any circumstances.

Requests for changes after the final files have been sent will be chargeable.

DulceGracePrintables is not responsible for any errors in a file which has been approved by you. Again, no matter who made the error in the file (or why), it is the customer's responsibility to check the proof over carefully and make amendments if required.

I don't run a spell-check (as it won't catch errors in proper nouns eg names) and I don't proof read the invite. IF I do see something in your text then I will point it out to you however after a day in front of the screen things can seem a bit hazy!

Vistaprint's "7x5" template is not 7x5 and thus requires additional work by me to resize your invitation so that it can be printed on Vistaprint. The current charge for this is an additional 25%-40% of the current purchase price (depending on the design).

Text and alterations must be sent to me in a format that can be cut and pasted ie not handwritten. If you wish to annotate something by hand and send it to me then this must be in addition to the text to be cut and pasted.

Please note that the color you see on your monitor may not be the exact color on the actual printed product. Also, all monitors display color differently. Please take these factors into account when placing your order. You are welcome to convo me for a sample file to test out the color at your printer of choice before placing your order.

All files are for personal (non commercial) use only and may not be re-sold, forwarded or shared.

Frequently asked questions

I don't get it! What would I be purchasing?

This listing is for the personalised digital file, which you can print as many times as you want to. Or you can go green and just email the file to your invitees.

I will personalise the file for you, then send you the draft file via Etsy message, so you can check it over.

The final file will be sent via email or download link.

What is your current turnaround time? Do you offer rush orders?

My current turnaround is 2 working days plus additional time to format the final file for you or to make revisions.

I do offer a rush order supplement here:-
https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/240505009/please-rush-my-draft-file?ref=shop_home_feat_1

(ideally, please purchase the rush order supplement at the same time as the invitation listing).

Where can I print my file?

If you are in the US please consider the following for ease of printing.
http://bit.ly/Dulce-Mpix
http://bit.ly/dulce-Staples2
http://bit.ly/Dulce-Zazzle2 *
http://bit.ly/dulce-Costco2
http://bit.ly/dulce-walgreen
http://bit.ly/Dulce-Walmart2
http://bit.ly/dulce-Shutterfly [choose "5x7 flat stationery cards"]
*this is an affiliate link so I would earn a small commission on this transaction. It would not increase the cost to you however.
You could also print as a photo print or 2 per page onto cardstock (8.5x11 or A4).
If you are outside the US, feel free to contact me for ideas on where to print.
Please note that sizing for Vistaprint is different and a small additional fee would apply (so I can make the file the correct size).

What size invitation file should I choose? 5x7 or 4x6 or A6?

If you want to print as a photo print (so onto photo paper, NOT onto cardstock), I would really recommend the 6x4 (or 4x6) size as it is normally much cheaper to print as a 6x4 than as a 7x5 photo.

For cardstock printing, 7x5 (or 5x7) will give you more options.

You CANNOT print a 7x5 file as a 6x4 (and vice versa). They are not just different sizes, they are different proportions (different aspect ratios).

I don't recommend A6 unless you live in UK, Aus or NZ.

Please note that sizing for Vistaprint is different and a small additional fee would apply (so I can make the file the correct size).

Will Dulce Grace personalise the file for me? Or do I need to do this myself? Where do I send my photo?

Dulce Grace will personalise the file with your event information and ensure this is formatted properly. You won't be able to edit your file.

If you have chosen an invitation with space for a photo, please email the photo file to: photos@dulcegrace.com

Sounds great! How do I proceed?

To proceed, please add the listing to your "cart" (there should be a green "add to cart" button), add matching items (if desired) then complete the checkout proces.

What if I need to change some of the text in my draft file?

This listing includes 2 rounds of revisions (so 2 further draft files) which is sufficient for 99.9% of my clients. You will be able to correct typos, change words etc. It's not always possible to add more words (especially blocks of text) so please make sure I have all of the information from the start of the transaction.

Once you have "approved" the file (and I have sent you the final file), any amendments to the text are normally chargeable.

Can I customise this design?

It depends on what you mean by "customise" and what changes you are looking to make! Text changes such as "mom" to "mum" and "honoring" to "honouring" are no problem at all.

If you want to change the colours or fonts you must check with me before purchase to see if this is possible (and whether it would attract additional costs).
