About

Traditional Craft Meets Modern Technology: Combining the Best of Both Worlds to Bring You Stunning, Custom Paper Goods

My family comes from modest roots; my mother's parents both came from rural farming families, while my father's parents immigrated from Italy and the Azores. They spent most of their lives working hard to support parents, children, and siblings, hand-making anything they could to stretch their earnings a bit further. When times got better, those skills became hobbies for my grandparents, hobbies they passed on to their children, so I was raised with a love for making things.

In 2009 I graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with a bachelor's degree in Graphic Design -- work that I love -- but after months of working on computers all the time, I though I would go crazy. I'd made books in my [rare] spare time at RISD, so when my mom asked if I could make her an appointment book, I jumped at the chance to work on a project that had to be made by hand. With my background in design and a full compliment of design software, I was able to lay out and print custom calendar pages; a lifetime of crafting and my college hobby had taught me how to make books by hand.

One planner became a dozen, and then -- when those sold out -- a dozen more. Someone asked, can I get a smaller calendar? Why not. What about pocket calendars? Sure. Do you have address books? I do now. Need a recipe book? No problem. Wedding invitations? Definitely.

That combination of design and craft defines what I do today. At Allyson DuPont Designs modern technology meets halfway with the meticulous, handmade craft in which my parents and grandparents took so much pride.

SHIPPING POLICY

Most items ship by USPS priority (2-3 days guaranteed) or first class (2-5 days) mail. International orders ship via USPS priority international (6-10 days) or first class parcel (shipping time varies by country).

Domestic DIY paperie materials (envelopes, sashes, and enclosures) ship by flat rate economy shipping (2-6 business days) unless upgraded to a faster shipping method, while international orders of DIY paperie materials ship by USPS First Class International Mail (1-4 weeks average) unless upgraded to a faster method/carrier.

Order processing time varies by item, so check the specific listing to find out how long you can expect to wait for your purchases. Complex orders, such as those with invitations AND paperie for the actual event, may be mailed in separate shipments to ensure that you receive time-sensitive materials in time to distribute them on schedule.

Need your order sooner? We will do our best to accommodate you, but we may decline the rush if our production schedule is too tight make your item and see to our other customers as well. You can also upgrade the shipping on both domestic and international orders. Send us a convo to ask about expediting options.

EXPEDITED SHIPPING OPTIONS
Please be aware that expedited shipping upgrades DO NOT shorten the processing time prior to shipping. For rush processing, please contact us prior to placing an order.*

*Rush processing may not be available for all orders. If available, additional fees may apply.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMS CHARGES
Some international destinations charge additional fees on merchandise arriving from other countries, including but not limited to: import taxes, additional taxes such as VAT, and customs charges. Any additional fees are typically collected at the time of delivery before your package is released. As a small business, we have no system to predict these fees, which vary by country, nor do we carry the international taxation licenses necessary to collect such fees at the time of purchase; any outstanding customs fees and/or taxes are the buyer's responsibility to tender upon delivery. If you are unsure of whether any such charges apply, we recommend you contact your postal service for more information about any applicable fees.

RETURNED ITEMS (UNDELIVERABLE/UNCLAIMED PACKAGES)
The buyer is responsible for providing an accurate mailable address and, for international orders, is responsible for tendering any customs fees and taxes upon delivery. For international orders, the address must be in English and cannot contain non-latin characters, such as but not limited to: Cyrillic, Hebrew, Germanic, and Asian characters. In the event that a package is returned to Allyson DuPont Designs because of an undeliverable address, forwarding address, etc., the buyer may elect to have the item(s) reshipped to a new address at his or her expense. If the buyer elects not to reship the item, a partial refund of the item price may be issued:

Non-Custom, Undated, Non-Seasonal Items: eligible for a refund of item price less 15% restocking fee
Pocket Enclosures: eligible for a refund of item price less 15% restocking fee
Non-Custom Planners & Dated Materials (in season): eligible for a refund of item price less 15% restocking fee

Refunds and Exchanges
Due to the fragile nature of paper and my own storage constraints, I DO NOT accept any returns. Exchanges may be made as long as the goods return in the same condition in which they were sent, but the buyer must pay any additional shipping charges for the exchanged items.

I DO NOT ACCEPT RETURNS OR EXCHANGES ON PERSONALIZED ITEMS, SPECIAL ORDERS, OR CLEARANCE ITEMS. For invitation orders (includes paperie for events, such as programs, place cards, etc.), the initial deposit is non-refundable, but cancelled special orders may be eligible for a partial refund. See our Cancellation Policy for our full refund policy on special orders.

RUSH ORDERS MAY NOT BE ELIGIBLE FOR FULL REFUND
If an order is cancelled because we cannot fulfill a rush requested AFTER the order was submitted, the cost of any non-returnable special materials purchased for your order prior to receiving the rush request will be deducted from your final refund. Please see our rush order policy for details.

I DO NOT ACCEPT RETURNS OR EXCHANGES ON DIGITAL DOWNLOAD ITEMS. If you are unsure of file formats and/or compatibility, please contact us before purchasing for clarification/more information.

DAMAGES, in cases where photographic documentation is provided, shall be assessed by the seller for a partial refund. In cases of significant damage or at the buyer's request, a complimentary return label for exchange or replacement may be provided in lieu of a refund, but no returns will be accepted for full cash refund. Return labels cannot be provided for international orders, but replacement will be offered for significantly damaged products pending clear photographic documentation of damages and/or return of the item.

PLANNERS AND AGENDAS are sold with a clear vinyl slip cover that protects the fine papers on the hardcovers from damage. While it is the customer's discretion to remove the protective cover, we strongly caution against doing so, as it will significantly compromise the durability of the book, particularly under heavy wear. In cases where damage results from the removal of a plastic cover (this includes but is not limited to marks or staining on the fine paper, tearing of the fine paper and/or fraying of the book boards), we are not held responsible for said damages, nor will compensation be provided, either in the form of a refund or replacement.

ITEMS RETURNED AS UNDELIVERABLE may be eligible for a refund in the form of store credit, provided that they are not:

- special order(s)
- personalized and/or custom items
- clearance items and/or items past their date of use (applies to seasonal and dated items)
- any other item that cannot be resold

Cash refunds shall not be issued for items returned as undeliverable under any circumstance.

BUYERS IN THE EUROPEAN UNION (EU)
Per EU regulations, non-custom items may be returned within 14 days for a full refund including original shipping charges pending return of the item(s). The buyer is responsible for the cost of returning the item(s). This does not apply to custom items, which are not eligible for return.

Additional policies and FAQs
I take special orders for custom paperie, including wedding and baby albums, and invitations and stationery for a variety of events. I also offer custom card designs to order for a variety of occasions, both in large quantities and individually.

CANCELLATION POLICY
Orders of ready-made, non-personalized, and non-custom nature may be cancelled at any time prior to shipping, though, if item production is already underway, the partial cost of materials and/or labor may be deducted from the final amount refunded for orders cancelled more than 24 hours after the time of purchase. Special orders, including customized or personalized items and wholesale/bulk purchases, can be cancelled for a full refund within 24 hours (includes non-business days) of purchase. After 24 hours any materials costs or labor charges incurred prior to cancellation will deducted from the total refund. If the cancelled order included custom design(s), design fees are not eligible for refund after proof(s) have been delivered electronically to the customer.

RUSH ORDERS
To ensure that all Allyson DuPont Designs orders are completed smoothly, we ask that, in the event that a customer would like an item delivered sooner that the processing time indicated, he or she send us a Convo requesting a rush order PRIOR TO PLACING AN ORDER. We will evaluate the time necessary to acquire any special materials and produce the order, and then notify the customer if we can accept the order and what, if any, rush fees or shipping upgrades will apply. If the customer accepts the terms of the rush order, the adjusted timing and price will be included in his or her custom listing.

If the customer did not make arrangements for a rush order PRIOR TO PLACING his or her order, we ask that he or she sends us a Convo immediately so we can evaluate our ability to accommodate the rush request. The customer will be notified if his or her order can be fulfilled, and informed of any rush or shipping upgrade fees that apply. If order in question was to be paid in installments, the customer will also be required to pay in full, as we cannot accept installment payments on rush orders. If the customer agrees to the terms of the rush order, any additional fees discussed will be invoiced to the customer and must be paid up front.

If the client does not accept the terms of the rush order or we find that we are unable to accommodate his or her timing needs, the order will be canceled within 24 hours. Per our cancellation policy, the cost of any non-returnable special materials (most commonly, but not limited to -- decorative and specialty papers, colored envelopes, etc.) purchased for the order prior to receiving a rush request will be deducted from the final refund given. In cases where a rush request was made in the notes section of the order, a full refund will be given if the order cannot be fulfilled.

DECORATIVE PAPERS
Many of our book covers are made from handmade and/or unique decorative papers. Subtle variations in print, texture, and color may occur from sheet to sheet. We are not responsible for these variations, and they do not constitute a defect.

SPELLING & TEXT ACCURACY
The customer is responsible for providing correct spelling and/or accurate text for all personalization and/or custom content, including but not limited to personalized gymnastics score books, nameplates for guest books, planners, etc., and custom invitations, stationery, and paperie. It is the customer's responsibility to bring to our attention any errors in the text that was provided immediately upon discovery, and provide correction(s) as soon as possible; if production has begun on the order before we are notified of errors, the customer may be responsible for paying duplicate production fees to correct the error. Any errors not reported until immediately before or following delivery can only be corrected at the customer's expense.

Please note: The text provided in the notes section of an order will be used by default for order production, except in cases where a specific request is made to use alternate text.

In the event that correct text is provided with the order and the mistake is made on our part, we will provide either a replacement or partial compensation for the mistake, depending on the customer's preference.

PRINTABLES
Printable Invitations include a single-line Allyson DuPont Designs credit on the back. An additional $5 fee will be charged to remove the watermark from these items.

CUSTOM CONTENT DELIVERY
Content (text, photos, etc) to be provided by the customer must be delivered in a timely manner to ensure production of the order on time. The customer will receive content deadline notifications if the content is not provided at the time of order and unmet deadlines may result in cancellation of the order. In the event of an order cancelation, the customer will receive a refund in accordance with the Allyson DuPont Designs cancellation policy; the purchase price and shipping will be refunded, minus any material, labor, and design charges incurred in the partial production of the order.
