► Please make sure your PayPal shipping address is updated. I try to mail to your Etsy address, but I may not notice differences and packages may be sent to your PayPal address which is your default shipping address but often not the most updated.

► Michigan residents will automatically be charged 6% sales tax.


► US ORDERS: Most items are shipped next day via USPS first class mail or parcel post. If you need your items faster, just let me know and I can provide you a quote on expedited shipping options.

► INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: Unfortunately, due to the lack of confidence I have in the US Postal Service, I am no longer able to offer shipping outside of the US. Too many packages have been destroyed, delayed for several months, or lost entirely. This is very frustrating for the customer and very expensive for me to continually replace orders. I am terribly sorry for the inconvenience and wish I did not have to make this unfortunate change. Thank you for your understanding.

Refunds and Exchanges

► If we have a similar product, we may be able to provide an exchange (customer is responsible for paying for all shipping). Please measure your items carefully and check the product size before purchasing.

► We do not provide refunds on Custom Orders unless the product you received was in error.

Additional Policies and FAQs

[[ MEASURING TIPS ]] offers a variety of clear resealable cellophane bags that fit the most common standard card envelope sizes. As I cannot determine whether your items will fit in which size bag, here are a few helpful suggestions when determining which sizes of bags to purchase.

Measure your envelopes, not your cards! Since the envelopes are larger than their corresponding cards, they are the determining size factor when buying packaging. Select the size of bag that will give a small amount of space around your items so that your customer can easily remove them from the bag. Most envelopes will fit ONE CARD and ENVELOPE very snuggly, so you may want the next size up to give a little more room, especially if the paper/embellishments are thick.

How many cards and envelopes sets will fit in one cellophane bag? Since stationery can be made from a variety of thicknesses, it is impossible to determine exactly how many of your sets, or other items, will fit into a specific bag. To be sure, measure a stack of cards and envelopes to determine the stack’s height. Double this measurement and add it to both the length and width of your envelopes. For example, if your items are 1/4” thick, you need a bag that is at least 1/2” wider and 1/2" taller than your envelopes.

From experience we know:
4.75 x 6.5 cello holds 3 sets of A2
5.25 x 7.25 cello holds 5 sets of A4/A6
5.5 x 8.125 cello holds 6 sets of A4/A6
