About

Unexpected Success

I thought up this crazy idea to start a "little" embroidery business shortly after the birth of my second daughter. (Trust me, I ALWAYS have a crazy idea.) I had received a personalized baby gift and thought it was so cool that I needed to buy something similar for a pregnant friend. I looked all over the internet for a personalized baby gift and kept winding up on Ebay, of all places. I used to be an Ebay Queen. So I thought hmmm, get me 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. 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.

And of course, Etsy is a much better vehicle to run my kind of business than Ebay!

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 run two commercial machines simultaneously. I love the freedom I have being my own boss!

    Hello! I am married with two wonderful daughters and a military husband. I have been embroidering since 2009. My business has grown so tremendously over the years that I have been able to quit my "real" job and work exclusively at home.

Thank you for visiting Addie Kakes Kreations! I offer made to order embroidered clothing and accessories for your little one! 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.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
I accept payment through Paypal and Etsy Direct Checkout. 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
Standard production time for all orders is 7-10 business days. Please see your receipt for estimated ship 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.

Shipping options available are USPS 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!

Generally most US orders arrive within 2-5 postal business days. 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. The ONLY shipping service that guarantees transit time is Priority Mail Express.

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.
Additional policies and FAQs
LAYOUTS
Please be sure to review carefully my chart when selecting a font. I include the entire uppercase and lowercase alphabet for each font I offer to give you an idea how the letters will look. You should be able to rule out fonts you do not like by letter shape. If you need more of a visual, font/layout examples can be provided UPON ORDER. Simply leave a note for me during checkout that you would like to see the layout before stitching. I will not proceed with your order until I have layout approval.

LAUNDERING
My items 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 laundering issues.

PREWASH
To ensure the best embroidery results and no design distortion after that initial wash/shrink, I prewash every garment and fabric used before I embroider them. The garment measurements on my listings are the washed measurements; you should see no further shrinkage with subsequent washes. For the most part, my shirts are ready to wear when received. The one exception I have is with some beanie hats, some I do not prewash. I do use fragrance free detergents and fabric softeners.
