=================================================================

=== When ordering ===

Please copy the following list and send the completed list in the "Note to DarlingSailorDesigns" box during checkout:

★1. Child's Name:

★2. Child's level in school (daycare, preschool, kindergarten, 1st grade, etc.):

★3. Date of first day of school:

★4. Child's Teacher's Name *OR* school's name *OR* a favorite (book, song, color, movie, song, etc.):

★5. Age of child on first day of school:

★6. Favorite (color, book, show, movie, subject, best friend, food, song, or you choose- but please, only 1 item):

★7. Name of School *OR* fun summer activity *OR* 2 things child loves *OR* weight and height (please keep VERY short):

★8. What child wants to do when he or she grow up *OR* another favorite (book, song, color, movie, song, etc.):

★9. Year your child will graduate high school:

★10. Color Palette you chose (please see the listing photos for palettes that you can choose from):

OR If you would like your own color choice, please let me know 2 to 6 colors (do not include white as one of your colors) from the last photo using the number that corresponds with each color you are choosing:

Please note that the color on the screen may vary from screen to screen as well as slightly vary when printing. Because printers use different printing calibrations, printing may vary. Try not to choose colors that are very close in shade/hue.

=== DIGITAL FILES ===

• All files will be either JPG or PDF (you choose) and in 300 DPI, RGB color setting. No bleed included, but if you need a bleed or CMYK color calibrations, please find out from your printer if they need these settings and submit those specifications when ordering.
• All designs with glitter are digital faux glitter, not actual glitter.
• All designs with chalkboard design are best printed on regular stock paper, framed (remove glass before photographing or using for a party decoration-- this is the best way to get the real "chalkboard" look!)
• Once you have received your file and are happy with the final design, you can download the design from the email I send you and take it to a local print shop to print. (Office Depot, Office Max, Staples, Costco, Kinkos, Walmart.Com's stationary print, or print from home on card stock!) For Vistaprint or photo labs, please choose the JPG options.
• This method is best for the buyer in a time crunch, or you want to save by printing on your own. Some printing companies charge less than $10-15 for even large size prints!
• All digital files will be sent to your email and printing tips/FAQs will be included.

=== PRINTS ===

• All international orders, please message me before ordering a print.
• Do not purchase print if you are in a time crunch! I need at least 5-7 business days to design, print, and ship your item. Shipment is done via USPS First-Class Package Service. If you need an upgrade, email me prior to ordering. Rush shipment and rush printing is an upgraded fee that is set by the printer and USPS. I can not control these upgrade prices, sorry!
• You will receive a proof in your messaging inbox on Etsy (not email) PRINTS WILL NOT BEGIN UNTIL YOU GIVE ME THE GO-AHEAD AND APPROVAL TO PRINT.
• All proofs for these are sent within 1 business day (these take priority). Upon proof approval, I will calibrate colors and settings for the best print quality and submit for printing. Printing takes up to 3 business days to print, package, and be ready for shipment. All large posters are shipped in a sturdy mailing tube.
• Drop shipped from our lab partner in Pennsylvania.
• Printed on commercial-grade printers with top quality archival inks and heavyweight matte fine art papers. These matte stock prints are flat, not glossy, so perfect for eliminating reflections. The quality is stunning and the prints are made to last!
• Please note, because of different types of printer calibrations and screen calibrations, teals and bright blues may have a slight contrast or hue difference once printed.

FAQs

All designs will be started only after payments are approved, but can not be promised early without a rush fee.
All digital files are free, but all hard prints will have a shipping time listed on each individual listing. Digital files are submitted via the email address on your Etsy account.
Business days include Monday - Friday. Business days end at 5 PM, but designs may be delivered to your email address as late as 11:59 PM EST. Saturday, Sundays, and federal holidays (holidays recognized by the federal government) are not included in the business days and should not be counted when estimating the delivery of an item. Rush orders will be processed 7 days a week. Please allow for a little delay in responses on weekends and holidays.
Due to the digital nature of most listings on DSD, refunds are NOT offered after an image is submitted, including high resolution proofs. All files are emailed as ready to print and can not be refunded. In the case of a mistake on the behalf of Darling Sailor Designs, the item will be corrected and resubmitted. This also includes any images that are submitted without a watermark. However, with custom orders, customers will be sent a proof/proofs before sending the finished product to ensure customer is happy with purchase. DSD is not responsible after the item has been accepted by the customer or for any errors made during printing.

I am unable to issue any refunds during flash sales for any orders existing prior to the flash sale.
Darling Sailor Designs can not issue any refunds on digital items because of a change in event details or cancellations. This policy includes but is not limited to wedding, party, or other event cancellations or change in details of event due to any reason.

Any edits past the 72 hour editing window will be required to purchase a $3 edit fee.

Orders are deleted from DSD's system after 7 days. If order needs to be changed past the 7 day window, buyer will need to repurchase the item.
For all instant download items, refunds WILL NOT be refunded under any circumstances besides an accidental double purchase or a flaw in the design, as approved by Darling Sailor Designs. Any digital file refund requests that are denied by seller will be upheld by Etsy.

For hard prints, refunds are only given in the event that the product sent does not match the exact digital proof or preview in the listing. This does not include color differences, as different monitors and screens can display different hues of colors. Please keep in mind that colors may vary slightly based on your screen and printer.
A copyright release is not the same as a print release. The copyright remains with DSD. If you need a print release, please message me and I can provide one for your order.

All digital files and prints are for personal use only and should not be resold or shared with others. All digital files and prints are not to be altered in any way and DSD should be contacted if customer is unhappy with product. After 72 hours of DSD emailing / sending the final proof, the customer accepts the design / image as is and any edits to image not done by artist (DSD) will be considered a copyright infringement. This is not limited to only purchased items, and all designs done by DSD are protected by copyright.
Yes, but it is the responsibility of the customer to make sure you have permission to use the photo.

Responsibility to use photo for design WILL BE THE BUYER'S RESPONSIBILITY and any legal action taken against Darling Sailor Designs for use of photo without photographer's permission WILL FALL BACK ON BUYER WHO SUBMITTED THE PHOTO OR FROM ANY PARTY THAT SUBMITS A PHOTO TO BE USED FOR A DESIGN.

Purchasing a print or digital file from your photographer does not mean you have purchased the copyright. A print release is not the same as a copyright release. Buyer must ensure that the print release includes use of such designs listed in the shop.
All digital items are 1-3 business days unless ordering a chalkboard milestone design, which requires 1-5 business days, but my goal is always 3 days or less. Your 3 day processing time will not begin until you have submitted the requested information from the listing description.

Please read the description for each individual processing time, as ordering prints will extend your time by 1-3 business days to allow for printing and packaging.

Estimated shipping time in shipping profiles only apply to digital files (excluding wedding programs and milestone posters).
The most important thing to know about printing is to know what printing company or printing service you will be using. They will request either a JPG (a photo file) or a PDF (a media file). 🖨️

A general rule of thumb is a printing company that prints more than just photos will want a PDF (such as Vista Print, FedEx, Office Max). If you are using a photo lab such as Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, or a photo kiosk, you'll want the JPG.
