Polkadot Stationery is a result of from my lifelong love of stationery. As a child, I would spend hours making my own cards, notebooks, and paper goods, and scrapbooks.
My Etsy shop was born in 2012, when a colleague had her wedding invitations delivered to our workplace. She'd had them designed professionally, but she was disappointed with the invitation design which looked traditional and plain.
I'd studied Graphic Design in college, so I decided to try my hand at some invitation designs! My shop now consists of wedding stationery, event stationery, and travel-related digital products.
I'm inspired by interesting typography and I love combining both modern and retro elements in my designs. I also thrive on ideas that are different or unusual.
I hope you find what you were looking for in the Polkadot Stationery Etsy store! If not, give me a holler and I'll see if I can custom design something just for you!

Refunds and Exchanges
I am happy to refund your payment (less a $5 fee to cover payment processing fees) if you submit it before I have started on your design. Once I have begun designing your stationery I can't offer a refund, however, I am more than happy to work with you until we have a product that you are happy with.
*** For instant downloads ***
As long as I can see that you have not downloaded the files, then I am happy to refund your payment (less a $1 fee to cover non-refundable payment processing fees).
Additional policies and FAQs
*** What does the design fee include? ***
Included in each of my listings is the initial layout of your text in my design, and 3 rounds of simple text changes. Please note that your stationery may look different if your text layout is in a different format to the one I have used in my design samples. The design fee does not include me writing any text, explanations, proofreading, or searching for/editing images on your behalf, so please send through your text and images exactly as you would like them on your stationery.
*** Can I have guest names on my invitations? ***
I'm more than happy to add your guest names. This does take a little extra design time so the cost is an additional $15 USD.
*** What if I want a language other than English? ***
You are welcome to have multiple languages on your design. Keep in mind that all translations must be provided by you, and the fonts may have to be changed from the sample fonts as the ones I have used may not support foreign characters.
*** I haven't finalised all of my text details yet. Can I do this later? ***
It's absolutely fine to finalise your stationery at a later date, just send through your text details once you have them finalised.
*** How long will it take until I receive my stationery? ***
I usually get back to you with the first draft of your files within 1-3 business days of receiving your text details. If you'd like to make any changes, I can make them again within 1-3 business days, and then they're all yours to print and put together.
*** Are you able to print my stationery? ***
From 2016, I will not be offering a printing service as I will be travelling long-term. To organise your own printing - do a search in Google Maps for 'digital printing' and you should find some print shops in your local area. If you are in Australia, you could also use Kwik Kopy or Snap Printing who have stores in most major cities. For US customers, try Staples stores or Vistaprint online.
*** Do you send printed samples? ***
I primarily sell DIY designs and unfortunately I don't usually sell/send printed samples, however my number one priority is making sure you are 100% happy with your stationery, so I'll work with you until you are completely satisfied.
*** Can I discuss my design with you over the phone or in person? ***
Unfortunately not - I work multiple jobs and travel a lot, so my work hours are sporadic. I have structured my business to be online only so that I can attend to your enquiry around other commitments, but I assure you my online customer service is equally as good as it is in person!
*** I can't find a design that suits the theme of my event. Can you help? ***
If you can't find any stationery to suit the theme of your event, I'd be more than happy to put together a custom design for you! Just send me a message with your ideas and I'll give you a quote for your personalised stationery.
