We ordered these as invitations for our wedding. We wanted something, yet quality. Mary was so helpful and responsive during the design process. I am excited to send them out to our guests! Thanks, again!

Mary was absolutely WONDERFUL to work with! She went above and beyond to make sure every detail was perfect! She worked with us on invites and after those were completed helped us with Wedding Programs. Her flexibility and prompt responses made the process so easy. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone and everyone! Thank you for all your help Mary!!

About

We design and print event stationery.

My name is Mary. I’m a graphic designer and the owner of A Look Of Love. I absolutely adore all things wedding and romance! I am also mother to a beautiful little girl and wife to a handsome fireman… two amazing job titles!

I started this shop with my father, Paul, who has taught me everything I know about graphic design and encouraged me to pursue my dreams to become an artist. Today, he helps me to make your experience one that is pleasant and truly memorable.

Planning the details of your wedding or preparing for some other special occasion can seem overwhelming. That’s why I’m dedicated to customer service, personal assistance, and making your experience here exceptionally pleasant!

It starts with communication. I know firsthand how busy and hectic your life may be at this time and that some assistance would be invaluable. So I ask for your input and listen to your ideas. Then I create your suite slowly and carefully, with expertise and a passion for design, typesetting and printing. Through my familiarity with etiquette, I make suggestions for your consideration. We exchange thoughts, working closely with one another every step of the way.

I provide you with options. You might request a color variation or want to change the typestyle to another font. You may prefer to have some items designed as a postcard, perhaps in a language other than English! Please don’t hesitate to let me know what you have in mind. I’m happy to customize your order. I’ll produce the design of your dreams, show you how it will look when printed and, once everything is the way you like it, deliver it to you quickly and effortlessly.

Elegant design, exceptional quality, a multitude of options and personal assistance –include premium envelopes at no additional cost, free shipping, and service beyond the sale. It all adds up to make your life easier!

I can’t tell you how thrilled I am for the opportunity to be a part of your big day, and I’m so looking forward to working with you!

Warmly,
Mary

Shop policies

Last updated on February 6, 2015
❚❚❚ Welcome to A Look Of Love!

We design and print event stationery. Because planning a special occasion may seem overwhelming at times, we’re dedicated to making your experience with us exceptionally pleasant. We’ll be happy to respond to any questions you may have. If at any time we can be of service, please feel free to let us know.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
❚❚❚ Due to its convenience and security, PayPal is the preferred method of payment. You do not need to create an account with PayPal if you don't already have one – just use your credit or debit card as you would anywhere else.
Shipping
❚❚❚ There is no charge for shipping wedding items within the continental US (excluding Alaska.) We ask those elsewhere to please contact us for a shipping quote. Expedited shipping is extra. All items ship separately.

** Free shipping offer applies only to wedding items. Other items are subject to shipping charges as indicated.
Refunds and Exchanges
❚❚❚ Refunds and Exchanges

We’re confident you will be satisfied, but if for any reason you are not, please contact us to initiate a solution. Due to the personalized nature of this product, we cannot refund or exchange printed items containing customer input inaccuracies (such as typos) that were previously approved. But in the event of a misprint, please accept our sincere apology. Printing errors will be remedied as quickly as possible.

** We will provide you with an accurately generated soft proof. However, we cannot guarantee color will precisely match the preview as it appears on your monitor, as we cannot compensate for color variance on each customer's screen. Furthermore, printing uses a completely different technology to render color than does a back-lit display. Please be aware that slight color differences between the two are normal.
Additional policies and FAQs
❚❚❚ Custom Design

You’ve chosen the perfect theme for your big day, but you can’t find matching invitations. Or perhaps you love our design but the suite doesn’t include the coordinated Ceremony Program you want. You’ll be happy to know we can easily accommodate you! Simply click the "Request Custom Order" button on our shop's home page, or just convo us with your request. We will respond to your inquiry within 24 hours!

❚❚❚ Personalization

The typestyles for each item have been carefully selected to ensure the fonts perfectly complement the attributes of each particular design. However, if you prefer a different typestyle, a wide variety is available. Let us know what you have in mind.

Similarly, the color of almost any design element or text can be changed. If for some reason we can’t accommodate your request, we will contact you to discuss alternatives.

❚❚❚ Printing

All items are printed professionally on a digital press using environmentally responsible printing practices and materials. We use 14 pt. 108# Premium White Cover Stock, about one and a half times as heavy as a standard index card. Its silken texture and pristine white finish prints flawlessly. From its uniform surface leap sharp, vivid colors and elegantly rich blacks. It’s one way we stay Green at A Look of Love – this stock is 10% PCW (Post Consumer Waste) and FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) Certified! We invite you to order our sample to experience this quality firsthand.

❚❚❚ Ordering

After purchasing a listing, you’ll need to submit your wording and any special requests. For your convenience, an order form is available:

http://alookoflove.wix.com/orderform

Alternatively, you may simply convo us with your personalization needs.

Once your order is processed, we will send you soft (digital) proofs, usually within 12 hours. Once you approve your proofs and payment is received, 3-5 business days are required for printing. The finished product will then ship via UPS Ground. We will alert you when your order has shipped. Please allow 2-5 business days for delivery.

❚❚❚ Samples

We regret samples are not available for every design. However, one vendor handles all of our printing so the texture of the cover stock and the ink coverage remain identical across all printed items. You can safely assume the quality of anything you order will be exactly like that of any sample you hold in your hands.

A sample is available here:
http://www.etsy.com/listing/85015977/wedding-invitations-stationery-printed

Samples contain the following items:
1 – 7” x 5” wedding invitation printed on 14pt. 108# Premium White Cover Stock
1 – Premium Finch Fine Ultra-Smooth Bright White envelope

Additionally, we often pull items from a print run for quality control purposes. Depending on availability, we may include these for your evaluation.

❚❚❚ FAQs

• How much do your items cost?
Total cost depends on the number of items, options and prints ordered. The listing price is a non-refundable down payment which will be subtracted from your total. We will invoice you the balance once your soft (digital) proofs have been approved.

• Can I DIY?
Yes, if you’d like to DIY and print your invitations on your own, we will provide the files in the appropriate format (JPG or PDF). Each item costs $25, and any double-sided item costs an additional $20. Again, the listing price is a non-refundable down payment which will be subtracted from your total.

** To avoid wasting paper and per-print fees when printing PDF files, a print shop will arrange more than one of these to be printed on a single page. This also saves time and trouble when it comes to trimming. We will arrange your files in this way and provide simple, precise trimming instructions. The fee for this optional service is $15 per item, $30 for double-sided items.

• How long until I receive my order?
The turnaround time for printed orders is approximately 5-10 business days after you have approved your final proof and paid your invoice. DIY digital files will be delivered within 24 hours following your approval of proof.

• Are postcards available?
Yes, a Response card/RSVP and Save the Date may be ordered as a postcard for an additional $20.

• Can you print names and addresses?
We include your name and address on the RSVP postcard. A Save the Date postcard can optionally be printed with your guests’ addresses for an additional $0.79 per print. Requires your mailing list.

• I love this design! Can I have it in another color?
The color of almost any design element can be changed, as can the font style. If for some reason we can’t accommodate your request, we will contact you to discuss alternatives. Feel free to specify a color in your order form or send us an image with the color you have in mind (such as a picture of your bridesmaid’s dress, your table linens, your flowers, etc.)

If you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!

❚❚❚ Please note that listing-specific policies, if different from those presented on this page, take precedence. We look forward to serving you! Mary and Paul
