These were a great hit at my wedding, The unfortunate thing was that my printer (a very common HP model printer) is not compatible with this design, and when I emailed about my printer issue it was something she knew about prior, I just wish somewhere it was listed somewhere in the details letting us know about it prior to purchase, because we ended up having to go to staples and incurred additional costs (over $100) to have them printed. But other than that issue they were a big hit at the wedding

About

A Unique Touch for your BIG Day

At Darling Girl Paper, we create custom cootie catcher designs for couples that want their wedding to be personal and extra special. Our goal is to help your guests get to know you a little bit better, while providing you with an original, totally custom design perfect for your big day.

Some brides come to us with a specific design in mind, some come with a feeling they want to evoke and some are complete blank slates. I take my inspiration from the couples themselves and find endless joy in providing unique designs that help complement your decor.

Designing cootie catchers has allowed me to be creative, support my family and meet so many lovely brides I still maintain friendships with.

I appreciate every bride who has allowed me to help tell their story and be a small part of their big day!

Hello and Welcome!

I am so honoured and excited to be able to be a part of your big day! I can tell you from experience that guest's love getting to know the bride and groom a little bit more and these adorable cootie catchers do a great job at that!

I want to make sure that you feel your cootie catcher accurately reflects you and your hunny, whether you are simple and elegant or fun and quirky. We work together until you are 100% satisfied with the final product.

Turnaround for a first draft is currently 48-72 hours. As a recent bride I know how annoying it can be to wait for things so I do everything in my power to ensure you get your design as quickly as possible, without compromising content, quality or customer service :)

I look forward to hearing from you!

Shipping
I DO NOT ship you a physical product. I DO send you your beautiful catcher in a pdf file for you to print how ever many times you like.

I will email you several draft (watermarked) copies of your design until you are satisfied, then when I get the o.k. from you I remove the watermark.
Refunds and Exchanges
I am committed to working with you to create a cootie catcher that you will be proud to display at your big day and offer unlimited revisions to make this possible. Because my work is custom I am sorry, but I cannot offer refunds on designs.

Please contact me ASAP if you have any questions/concerns. Check out my feedback for reassurances from other happy brides.

{In Case of an Error}
* please note: I copy and paste directly from the info that you send me so please double check the spelling and grammar of all info you provide. I am not a spellchecker or the grammar police and cannot be held responsible for errors you provide. I send multiple drafts before a design is finalized and it is your responsibility to look over each draft and ensure that the information and spelling is accurate. Once the final design has been sent I am unable to make changes or offer refunds/discounts as you approved the final version.
Additional policies and FAQs
{F.A.Q}
*Q: How much does it cost to design and print 100 catchers?
*A: Unfortunately I am not set up at this time to print cootie catchers on a commercial scale. I do not have the stock or supplies needed to provide this service. I am however looking into this option and will hopefully be able to offer this service in the near future.

I am able to create a completely beautiful custom designed cootie catcher for you with unlimited revisions (a revision is an edit, not a complete redesign). I then email you your beautiful catcher in a pdf file for you to print how ever many times you like.

*Q: Why would I want to print these myself?
*A: For a few super awesome reasons:
- absolutely no shipping costs
- absolutely no waiting for the postal service to deliver a package
- absolutely unlimited quantity
- absolutely no overhead. You aren't paying for my ink and my paper stock, and because of that you save more money by providing your own materials.
- 100% control over colour. Print your first draft at home and if it isn't the colour you are looking for let me know and we'll keep working to match your sample. Differences in monitors and printers can lead to disappointment when colours don't match perfectly.
- 100% control over paper. You are able to go to the store and pick exactly what you are looking for, instead of depending on online pictures and descriptions.

*Q: Are they hard to fold?
*A: Absolutely not! I send super clear folding instructions and am always available if you run into trouble.

*Q: Are you sure you can't print them for me?
*A: I am sure.

*Q: My wedding is on (insert date) can you get these done for me with enough time to print and fold them?
*A: The short answer is YES! If you need your catchers by a certain date in the very near future (less than 2 weeks) PLEASE EMAIL ME BEFORE YOU PLACE YOUR ORDER. I will do everything in my power to get your design to you ASAP, but in return I need you to check your email often and respond to my questions in a timely manner. Please note, a rush fee may apply depending on the number of current orders at the time. Any order received with less than 2 weeks notice may be cancelled (and a refund provided) at the shop owner's discretion.

*Q: I'm not in a rush, how long will it take you to complete my design?
*A: Once I receive your purchase and completed information I can have a draft ready for you to view in 48 - 72 hours. From that point we usually go back and forth a few times, making changes along the way, until you are completely happy with the design. Any edits you request are returned within 24 hours. From start to finish the process usually takes about 1-3 weeks. And again, this is dependent on the quickness of your replies.

*Q: I love these! But I don't know what I want inside...can you help me?
*A: YES! Some of my favourite designs have started as completely blank slates. We can work together to figure out your needs and what it is that you're looking for. Don't be shy, send me an email {darlinggirlpaper [!at] gmail.com} and we'll get started!

*Q: My son's birthday is coming up, can we do a design for a birthday instead of a wedding?
*A: Of course! I love doing new designs and am totally open to doing designs for birthdays, baby showers, anniversary parties, bar mitvahs, etc...just send me an email {darlinggirlpaper [!at] gmail.com} and we can get talking about what it is you're looking for.

*Q: Can I get more than one set of questions so my guests can learn more about me and my husband?
*A: Definitely! I currently offer up to 5 sets of questions, but if you're looking for even more just convo me and I'll set up a Custom Listing for you.

*Q: Do you need any special paper / What kind of paper do you recommend?
*A: No, you do not need any special paper. My cootie catchers are designed to fit on standard 8.5x11 paper (if you are in North America) or A4 paper (if you are anywhere else in the world). Plenty of my brides use plain old regular computer paper, which really brings out the colour in the designs (that's what it's made for!). If you're looking for something a little more special you can pick up textured paper at most office supply stores. Don't feel restricted to sticking to white either. Ivory paper can give cootie catchers a whole new dimension and work really well if you're going for a vintage feel. You can also go with a coloured paper to help these guys *pop*! I would caution that you stay away from anything too thick, like cardstock. It will just make it a nightmare to cut and fold.

*Q: Ok, I'm ready...what do I do now?
*A: Head on over to my shop and browse the different styles that I offer. When you find one that you like purchase the listing. If you don't see anything that fits what you're looking for just convo me and I'll set up a custom listing for you.

*Q: Do you accept any payment other than PayPal?
*A: At this time no, I only accept PayPal as a method of payment. But just because you don't have a PayPal account doesn't mean you can't order. PayPal accepts most major credit cards and you don't have to sign up to use them.

*Q: Oh no! My best man can't attend my wedding and I need to change my design to reflect that {or something similar}. Can you alter my finalized design?
*A: I understand that life gets in the way and things change {especially when planning a wedding}. I keep all designs electronically stored for 6 weeks after completion, after which time I delete them, in order to keep my computer from getting stuffed up. If you do need your finalized design altered and I still have it stored there is a $10 fee for changing a completed design. If your design has already been deleted I will design it again at full price. Thank you for understanding :)

{Feedback}
I love to get feedback, but I understand that many buyers prefer not to leave it. I respect buyers' privacy, and the decision to leave feedback is happily up to you. Additionally, I would love to know how you found me! Let me know in an e-mail or convo, will you?
