A Passion for Design

I've always had a passion for art and design. After being laid off from my fancy gig at a big Minneapolis ad agency when the economy went sour in 2008, I started Benign Objects as a small, one-person shop where I could design and create all manner of things, from wedding invitations to pillows!

My biggest seller is custom printed handkerchiefs, which I started producing for others after receiving a lot of inquiries about them following a mention on Style Me Pretty. Things have been going wonderfully since then, with numerous mentions and features of my work in some of my favorite magazines, like Martha Stewart Weddings and Southern Weddings.

I work diligently to try to add unique products and designs to my shop and to provide prompt and warm customer service.

Welcome to my shop! I've filled it with with items born out of my passion for design. I also do custom work including one-of-a-kind wedding invitation design, branding, logos and package design for businesses. Please take some time to read through my policies and FAQ. Pricing for printed invitations and announcements is below:

Cards and announcements are listed at our minimum quantity of twenty (25), and are available in increments of 5 thereafter. If you’d like to order more than 25, please purchase the shop listing to get started. We’ll invoice you for the remaining balance and begin design work on your proof.

This pricing is for printing on your choice of smooth 110# uncoated cardstock or #110 white felt weave cardstock (which has a bit of tooth like watercolor paper). Additional paper upgrades—such as velvety, tree-free cotton paper or extra luxe, double thick paper—are below.

Returns and exchanges
Many of my products are made to order and/or personalized and therefore once a proof is approved and the items are printed, they are yours. If an item is damaged in mailing, I require you submit photos to me of the product AND of the packaging that it arrived in, so I may submit a claim to the postal service. You must also return the damaged product to me. If it is not a custom item, you can return the item to me and I will gladly refund your money.
I accept both PayPal payments, Etsy direct checkout and Etsy giftcards. At the final step of Checkout, you can either sign in to you PayPal account OR use a credit card without having to register for a PayPal account.

Please note: Design work and/or printing will not begin until payment is complete.

If you choose to pay by echeck through PayPal, design work and/or printing will not begin until payment has cleared (generally 3-5 business days after payment).

Non-payment transactions will be canceled after 3 days.

8% sales tax will be added to all purchases from Alabama.

Please contact PayPal directly with any PayPal related issues.

Please reference the following link for payment instructions if you are having trouble
I usually ship using the USPS, If you would like to have the shipping upgraded or need things in a rush, please let me know so I can calculate that extra cost of shipping.

Shipping overseas can get a bit tricky as prices vary. To send via Fedex or UPS will be between $130-150 for a handkerchief order of around 100 and is guaranteed. To send it via US Postal Service is about $20, but is not guaranteed by me or the postal service and there is not really a way to track it. So, that means that if the package is lost, it's lost and neither me or the post office can be held liable. However, I ship internationally this way most often (most people don't want to pay $130!) and have never had a problem so far, but I wanted to make sure to give full disclosure.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please allow 2 business days for me to reply to your inquiries.

I NEVER start any work without a 50% deposit. This is industry standard.

***The Process***
For custom items, I will send digital proofs in 4-5 business days once an order is placed (meaning deposit or payment in full is received) and customization info is received. Proofs will not be provided prior to payment.

3 rounds of proofing are included. Additional edits will be require a proofing charge of $10.00.

Once a proof is approved, printing will commence. Proofing is *solely* your responsibility and I will not be held responsible for any errors discovered after final approval has been given. Once you approve a proof and an item is printed as you approved, you may not alter it and the item is non-refundable

***Turnaround Times***

1. Production time varies on item being purchased, but a general guideline is:
2. Printable Items: 1-2 business days after your approval of design proof
3. Custom Printable Items: Proof in 2-3 business days after ordering
4. Printed Invitations/Stationery/Paper: 4-6 weeks
5. Custom Handkerchiefs: 6-8 weeks
6. DIY Handkerchiefs: Proof in 2-3 business days after ordering. Handkerchiefs shipped within 1-2 business days.

If the above turnaround time does not meet your deadline, you can request a rush order that we will accommodate if possible. Rush charges apply.
Rush fee is 25% of your total order.
