About

About Addie Kakes Kreations

I thought up this crazy idea to start a "little" embroidery business shortly after the birth of my second daughter in 2008. I had received a set of personalized burp cloths as a gift and thought it was so cool, I decided to buy something similar for a pregnant friend. After looking all over the internet to buy my gift, a little lightbulb went off. How fun would it be to make things like this myself? I'll just get myself a little embroidery machine, some thread, burp cloths. Easy day. Cool little side show? Yes please.

Ha. I couldn't have been more wrong! There is so much more to embroidery than it looks on the surface. I find it's an art that if you're good at, you can make it look easy. (Believe me, you've got a lot to learn and you'll know bad embroidery when you see it!) With much trial and error, I taught myself everything I know. I'm so pleased with how much my skills have improved over the years and the pieces I am now able to create. I've even begun turning my own artwork into embroidery designs and even sell some of them in my second shop: Addie Kakes Kreations Too.

I used to work full time as a laboratory technologist at a hospital. With the orders constantly flowing in, it became increasingly difficult to juggle both jobs, plus my family. When I analyzed both sources of income, it just didn't make sense to keep my lab job. I now do my embroidery full time and my "little embroidery machine" has turned into two BIG commercial machines that I run simultaneously. I love the freedom I have being my own boss!

My shop name is a little twist on my two daughter's names: Addison and Kaelee. :)

    Hello! I am married with two wonderful daughters and we are a military family. I have been embroidering since 2009. I was able to turn my little "side project" into a real business and love it!

Thank you for visiting Addie Kakes Kreations! I offer made to order embroidered children's clothing and accessories, bags, dolls and more. Make your new baby's arrival special with a personalized outfit or announce your baby's name with it! Personalized birthday shirts make your little one's day exciting! I love holiday themed items too! Custom requests welcome!

With the exception of a very small number of items, mainly Christmas stockings and Easter Basket liners, I do NOT make my "blank items". (This includes bags.) I do the embroidery/personalization only on my items. My order volume is just way too high to entertain the thought of making shirts, bags, etc myself.

Payment
I accept payment through Paypal and Etsy's Direct Checkout system. You may pay with a credit card with either system. You do NOT have to have a Paypal account to pay with Paypal! 6% tax applies to Virginia customers.

I understand plans can change. If I have not begun on your order and you need to cancel, no problem. Just let me know. Once I have begun on your order though, sorry no cancellations as everything is made to order.
Shipping
There are two time periods to consider when placing your order: production time and shipping time. Production time is how long it will take for me to make the items in your order; orders are completed in the order they were received. Shipping time is the transit time for your order to go from my workshop to your doorstep.

Standard production time for all orders is up to 2 weeks. Please see your receipt for estimated ship date. If you will need your item before that date, rush production time can be added to your order here: http://etsy.me/KBJM9J

Shipping is automatically calculated for you during checkout and expedited shipping options are available. Please note, expedited shipping is for shipping transit time ONLY. If you need your item to be MADE and leave my hands sooner, you need to purchase the RUSH upgrade mentioned above as well.

I ship via the US Postal Service only. Shipping options available are First Class Mail(2-5 day), Priority Mail(2-3 day), Priority Express Mail(1-2 day) or Parcel Select(2-9 days); all include tracking. First Class is usually the best choice for most orders; if the item weighs more than 13oz, it must ship via Priority at minimum. Parcel Select is the most economical for larger sized packages, but should only be used when you are not in a rush to receive the item as it is the slowest! Priority Express Mail is the only guaranteed transit time by USPS.

Generally most US orders arrive within 2-5 postal business days. While I do guarantee to ship your item within my 2 week window, please keep in mind once the package leaves my hands, shipping delays are beyond my control. Though not the norm, delays can occur, especially around holidays. Rush production fees will not be refunded for delayed postal service shipping transit times.

Allow between 2-4 weeks for all International orders to arrive. Not responsible for seizure by customs, customs charges, taxes, or additional postage for international buyers.

I will allow the postal service up to 2 weeks for domestic orders and 6 weeks for international orders before refunding or resending for lost packages. Please contact me with any shipping issues including damage.
Refunds and Exchanges
Because all my items are custom made to order, all sales are final on my items. I cannot accept returns or exchanges. Please be sure you check over your personalization info carefully before submitting and be sure you have checked over my sizing information. I do not replace for sizing issues and am happy to answer any questions about size before ordering. Of course if a mistake is made on my end, I will correct as needed. Contact me so we can discuss a plan of action.

If your item was damaged during shipping, please contact me within 7 days of receipt. Notify of any defects in items such as bags, totes, etc within 30 days of purchase.

Frequently asked questions

View my available fabrics here:

https://www.facebook.com/pg/AddieKakes/photos/?tab=album&album_id=10153040358469815

My Facebook page is public, you do not need to have a Facebook account to view. If your mobile device forces a log in to view, simply search for "Addie Kakes Kreations Facebook" in your browser and you can navigate to my Fabric Album that way. You can also use a regular computer to avoid this issue.

Where do I find font and color options?

Please scroll through the listing photos to view charts.

Can I see a preview of my selections?

You can look over my font chart to see how each letter looks in each particular font. But if needed, I can provide a layout to you upon order only. Layouts are part of the order completion process and do take a little time to create. They are the image view of the actual stitch files that will be used to sew your order.
Please note layouts are mainly for design placement and font purposes only. The layout will be the stitched areas only and do not include any fabric choices or represent actual thread colors. Requested colors and fabrics will be added at the time of stitchout.

Can I buy your garments without personalization?

Sorry, I reserve my blank stock of shirts and other garments for embroidery orders only. I am not able to resell any garments without embroidery.

When will my order ship?

Orders currently ship guaranteed 2 weeks from the date of purchase. At times I do run ahead of schedule and may ship sooner, however this is not guaranteed. The only way to guarantee faster order completion is by adding rush service to your order via the link below. I offer rush production for all items and price does vary depending on the time to complete. Please by sure to read the description of each rush option to ensure you select the correct one. For example, "3 DAY - for bags" would not be right for a birthday shirt.

Please be aware, all orders have a production time and a shipping time. These are two separate things so consider the time for each individually.

Children's Tshirt Sizing Information

12M (11"W X 13.5"L )
18M (11.25"W X 14"L)
2T (12"W X 15"L)
4T (13"W X 17"L)
6T (13.75"W X 18.5"L)
8 (14.25"W X 19.5"L) (Youth small)
10 (14.75"W x 21"L) (Youth medium)
12 (16"W x 22.5"L) (Youth large)
Width is measured at waist. Length is from top of shoulder to bottom edge. There may be slight variance from batch to batch.

Ordering online has the disadvantage of not being able to try on clothing first. Because your shirt is made to order and personalized, I am not able to replace shirts due to sizing errors. The best way to determine the size needed is to measure and compare to a well fitting shirt at home. Sorry my shirts are not offered in odd sizes (3T etc). My recommendation is go up a size for these.

Bodysuit and Gown Sizing Information

Baby gowns are offered in size 0-3m only. These will fit most newborns up to about 10lbs.

White and color bodysuits do have a bit of a sizing difference.

How do I wash my items?

GARMENTS
My garments do not require special treatment when laundering. Wash and dry as you would any other shirt. I use polyester embroidery thread and if your garment is white and does not have any fabric appliqued on it, can even be bleached. The thread will not bleach out or fade. Do not use delicate cycles, these cycles soak the garment too long and can cause colors to bleed. The garment may need to be ironed after drying. Unless there is a defect in my stitching, I will not replace the garment for problems arising from washing.

PLUSH ANIMALS AND DOLLS
Wash your dolly or animal in cold water and tumble dry low. Do not bleach. For extra protection, place in a mesh laundry bag.

Deadline for Easter Orders

Yes there is still time to place your Easter order! Easter is Sunday, April 16th. Deadline to order with standard processing is March 28th. After March 28th, all Easter orders will require minimum Priority Mail for shipping. I will continue to accept orders until I have reached my maximum threshold to complete them on time.

Easter orders will ship by April 11th.
