FAQs:

* TURN-AROUND TIME * Just a few days! :) I'm usually able to customize and send proofs within 24-48 hours of the order being placed (excluding the occasional weekend off) - once a proof is approved, I'll send a print-ready file within another 24-48 hours. (In some cases, it may be quicker, but I am not in the office 24/7, so I can't promise to accommodate anything needed in less than 48 hours. Check the shop's Twitter page at twitter.com/cyanandsepia for latest schedule updates.)

* Invitations are PRINTABLE files! This means I do not print them - I'll send you the customized image file, for you to print as many as you'd like, whenever and however you'd like! :)

* Wording changes of any kind are included with purchase of any invitation or enclosure card listing! You're welcome to use a bridal shower invitation for a wedding, a baby shower invitation for a birthday, etc.

* I always send a proof first, for you to check for spelling or other changes before emailing a final copy.

* Instant download files (gift tags, recipe cards) are sold as-is - no customization is included with purchase. Convo me with your request, and I can let you know pricing for alterations. :)

* Custom work: I'm usually available for custom orders! Whether it's a brand new design, or a matching item you don't see listed (programs, water bottle labels, party circles, etc), send me a Convo about what you have in mind! :) Please note that they do take extra time to complete, though usually within a week.

* Old designs: In an effort to ensure more prompt completion of orders (as well as a little housekeeping!), I occasionally remove older designs from the shop. If there was one you wanted that you don't see anymore, PLEASE just let me know! I still have all the files accessible, and can get it re-listed for you if desired. :)

* The only items I have available as already-printed items are note cards and thank you cards - every listing specifies if it's a printed item or digital image. (Though I may be able to help you navigate the world of ordering prints online if you need it!) Any questions, feel free to contact me directly!

* Please check the Shop Policies for additional information, see the full "Item Details" description on the listing you're interested in, or, as always, feel free to Convo me with your questions!

New items for C&S! Print your own postcards - purchase once, print however many you want whenever you want! (I've often found myself scrounging around for some lately, figured spiffy printables might help other folks out too. ;)
New invitation design added to the shop! Been fiddling with this in my spare time for awhile, really happy with how the vine/smoke came together. :)
Added a non-photo option to the Wood and Flourishes save the date! Tweaking some designs for the better as I update my templates. :)

About

Customized design, made with a love for color, detail, and vintage style!

When planning my wedding in 2011, I not only had a ton of fun designing all the decor, but loved how "me" everything felt on the day of the event! There's such a lovely feeling when an event looks just how you'd hoped, and the style of all the little details feels downright cozy, because it suits you so well.

So, now I'm here to help add unique touches to your event! :) All of the designs in the shop are my own, and while I do keep an eye on trends, I always twist things a little to suit my style. I love old-fashioned elegant designs, the look of old paper, and playing with color.

I always send a proof first for you to double-check text accuracy, and will send your print-ready final copy with whatever specifications you need. You then have the flexibility to print however many you need, whenever you need, wherever/however you'd like! (Many people print at home, but you can also use a local copy/print shop, many office supply chains, or print-on-demand websites - I keep the requirements for many of these places on-file to make your life easier. :)

I keep my design files setup in such a way that all kinds of changes can be made. Want the text navy blue instead of brown? Need an odd-sized R.S.V.P. design to fit the cards you bought? Have some extra information you want to send guests or post at your event? Let me know what you're looking for, we can work up a custom order for you!

I also try to be as prompt as I can for you - officially, 24-48 hours for a first proof after payment is received, but it's often under 24 hours. Message replies are generally within a few hours (rarely more than 12). I do have a toddler underfoot though, so don't panic if my replies slow down sometimes, I'll type when I can. ;)

My design background: I've been teaching myself Photoshop since high school, wound up with a college degree in Media Arts, then spent a few years working at a party goods/gift shop, where I spent a lot of time in the printshop. (There were a few months doing ad layout at a PennySaver newspaper, but that portion of my life is hazy due to all the migraines from car ads ha.)

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

All printable designs can be customized any way you'd like! You don't have to use my sample wording, or even use it for the same event - just let me know what you'd like it to say!

I do a limited amount of from-scratch new custom designs - contact me with what you're looking for, and I'll see what I can do! :)

Custom printed notecards have a turn-around time of several weeks, I don't regularly offer them (but can design print-your-own).

I do NOT refund completed customized files. (I've already put in the time!) I can, however, make alterations at a later date if your event details have changed. :) Also, if your order is still in-progress or you haven't received your first proof, I may be able to do a partial refund if contacted promptly.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Notecards are always packed in plastic sleeves (for safe travels), tissue paper and cute string/yarn (for happiness), and ship in a sturdy cardboard mailer. I'm happy to include a gift note if you'd like, just let me know when ordering! :)

Designs

I can accommodate most design changes (color, font, etc) for an additional fee, contact me regarding details. :)

FONTS: Any you see in my shop can be used on other designs too! (I can often find something similar, but can't always use any specific font you request, depending on its terms of use.)

COLORS: Every screen and printer processes color differently. I do my best to ensure consistency, but your phone and my monitor and Kinko's printers will never be exact.

PHOTOS: Must be high enough resolution - send original unedited file whenever possible. Photos with watermark or photographer's logo cannot be used without permission from photographer.

IMAGES: Want to swap a heart for a star, add a bird to a branch, etc? I can look into it!

Proofs

I send review proofs for every customized order within 24-48 hours (often less), so you're able to review for any spelling corrections, information changes, etc. A few rounds of alterations are included in your original purchase price (and we can do more for a small fee if you have additional requests). Once approved, I'll email the print-ready final copy in whatever format/setup works best for your printing plans.

Legal/Copyright

I retain the rights to any and all design. Listings are for PERSONAL use only. You're welcome to use a purchased image to your heart's content, but you are NOT entitled to, for example, re-use the border and fill in different information for someone else's party. Custom designs may be re-worked (with info altered :) to sell in my shop at a later time.

I use a mixture of original content, paid-for images/tools, and publicly-available design resources. I do the BEST I can to ensure all design resources (font, brushes, textures, etc) I use are legal for commercial usage, but if you spotted one I goofed, please contact me and I'll happily fix! I've put links to some of my most frequently used design resources in the shop's profile.

Returns/Refunds

I cannot refund purchase of customized items/files. (I've already put in the time!) I can, however, make alterations at a later date if your event details have changed, and send you a new version. :) Also, if your order is still in-progress or you haven't received your first proof, I may be able to do a partial refund if contacted promptly.

For physical notecards, I may accept returns on regular-priced items - please contact me regarding your concerns.
