The invites came super fast they're very pretty my daughter loves them. My only issues is they're not on card stock it's a photo quality paper. I usually order pdf and print myself at Costco will do that again next time I really enjoy the card stock quality. Being said these invites will still work fine and they look good!

About

A mom who loves to design party items!

From a young age, I have been an artist and an entrepreneur.
I was raised in the printing industry and have worked hands-on in design, manufacturing and finishing for 2 decades.
I have spent many years in particular, designing and hand-making party products for my kids, friends & family before deciding to start a business selling party supplies. Thousands of sales over many platforms, and just as many gushing customers later, I knew I was living my dream.
I look forward to helping you design the perfect products for your special occasion!

I make all of my own designs, and I produce all of my own printing and finishing. I use a real, commercial grade printing press, for high-quality printing that you can't get just anywhere. Because I do all of my own printing and finishing, I am in control of your items from start to finish. There are no outside manufacturers that I have to rely on, so I take pride in the fine details of every item I produce.

I have two wonderful, young boys, who love my business as well. They enjoy 'helping' and I am proud to admit my kindergartner has helped me decide between colors and fonts when I get stuck.

I take pride in caring for our planet, and there's no exception when it comes to printing my products. My papers are minimum 35% post-consumer recycled content, 100% recyclable, all of my inks are linseed (flaxseed) oil based, and any optional coatings are water-based.

I also sell awesome vintage finds in my other store, found here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/PreciousMomentos

Thank you for stopping by! I know you'll love your product, and I work hard to make sure it's just right for your party! Buy with confidence, but please ask questions; I answer quickly. I am a mother of 2, who does graphic design & printing for a living, and I love what I do. I know you will too!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
My items are personalized, make sure you include your personalization in notes to seller at checkout. If you forgot, send me an Etsy message with your personalization information. If your item has a photo, please send it via Etsy conversation as well.
I gladly accept Etsy direct checkout, Etsy Giftcards and Paypal.

==PROOFING==
All items are proofed first, and your proof will come within 24 hours, normally same day. It will come through your Etsy conversations messages, so make sure you log back in and check it within 24 hours. Do not reply to an email, you need to log into Etsy to respond. You need to look it over carefully for any errors, I recommend on a computer and not on your phone. I do not check for typos or do any copy editing, so it is important that you do this yourself. Once approved, I can not make any changes because I may have already laid it out for my press. If I do not hear a response to a proof within 2 days, your order will be considered approved and begin processing.
Shipping
**IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ**
I typically ship in 2 - 3 business days from proof approval. Business days are Monday-Friday. Shipping methods are always in addition to 2-3 business day processing time. I observe US Government observed Holidays.

==For Continental US Customers==
Standard shipping is USPS Priority Mail, upgraded options are available if you're in a rush.All shipping is still 2-3 business days from proof approval + transit option you select. Fedex 3-day guaranteed is 3 business days. The 2-day & overnight options are based on a generic transit location, you may contact me for a quote to see if it's cheaper, just let me know your address and what your order contains. I do refund the overage (if any). Ask me if you have any questions please!
==For Alaska & Hawaii Customers==
The default shipping method is USPS Priority mail, if you'd like the Fed-Ex 3-Day Guaranteed, contact me with your address for a shipping quote, as Fed-ex does not service all locations.
==For International Customers==
Items ship via USPS Priority International; you can check out their website for better transit times for your location, but most countries average 10-14 days. If you'd like to quote a faster transit, contact me with your information.

==For Generic Samples of Products==
For US Customers only, shipping is USPS Priority Mail (2-3 day advertised).
Refunds and Exchanges
All sales are final, due to the personalized nature of my products, I can not offer returns. It is important you check your proof carefully for any typos, I do not copyedit what you provide. If I make an error on the product after you have approved the proof, I will fix it.

Because I can not control the quality of other printers, I can not offer any refunds on digital purchases. If there's a problem with the quality of print where you are printing it, I can convert your file to a printed order, as I provide fast, high quality printing!

Due to the time it takes to create your design, a cancellation after I have designed your item will incur a non-refundable design fee, a minimum of $17.99 once a proof has been sent.
Additional policies and FAQs
I appreciate your business, and I promise to work hard at making your item just how you'd like it. In return, please be courteous to the time it takes to design your item and please check your order for typos, before you submit.

Custom orders are always welcome, let me help you make your dream products become a reality!

Frequently asked questions

Personalization & Proofing

My items are personalized, make sure you include your personalization in notes at checkout or send me an Etsy message with your personalization information.
==PROOFING==
1 low-resolution digital proof is included in invitations, this is for content accuracy, not design, so please make sure you double check your information for accuracy before submitting. If you'd like to change layout, fonts, colors, etc. on an item, it will need to be quoted before your order. The price in my listings does not include custom designing layouts, fonts, or color sets. It is important to carefully check your proof before approving (recommended on a computer, not a phone) -
Once a proof is approved, no changes can be made, no exceptions.

US Shipping Information

I typically ship in 2-3 business days from proof approval. Business days are Mon-Fri. If a proof is not responded to within 2 days, they are considered approved.
==For Continental US Customers==
Shipping cost includes Priority Mail 2-3 day advertised transit for most orders. Turn time for most products are 2-3 business days from proof approval + shipping transit. Upgraded options are available if you're in a rush, turn time is still 2-3 days for production + shipping time. The upgraded options are based on a generic transit location, you may contact me for a quote to see if it's cheaper, just let me know your address and what your order contains. Ask if you have questions please.

Hawaii & Alaska & International Shipments

==For Alaska & Hawaii Customers==
The default shipping method is USPS Priority mail, upgraded options are for contiguous US only - if you'd like a faster method, contact me for a quote.

==For International Customers==
Items ship via USPS Priority International; you can check out their website for better transit times for your location, but most countries average 10-14 days. It is not considered lost until 45 days to file a claim. If you'd like to quote a faster transit, contact me with your information.

Digital Orders - JPG or PDF?

PDFs print the best quality; however, you will need a PDF viewer on your computer to view them, and not all printers will accept PDFs. Both are 300dpi print-ready files. You need to contact your printer, and ask them if they can accept JPG or PDF? Files do come with 1/8" extra image bleed on all sides which is standard for printing companies. If some reason they do not want a bleed, just let me know and I'll send it without the bleed. Note that not all print locations use the generic sizing. If you order a 5x7" and a company only prints 5.5x7" for example, your file will not fit their layout. It is important for you to find out requirements from the printer before purchasing, there are no refunds on digital files.

What are 'generic samples' in each listing?

These are samples of the product, not personalized, printed the same way & same stock that you would receive if you place a full order. This is helpful if you're looking to place a large order and want to have the feel of a sample in your hand before spending a large amount of money. They are shipped via USPS.

Can You Make Me a Custom Design?

Most of the time, I can do this! We will need to discuss the expectations ahead of time and there will be a custom listing made for your item(s). I do send proofs before finalizing any custom designs. Note that Party Print Express retains the ownership and copyright for all designs, and they can be resold at my discretion. If you'd like an exclusive design, please let me know when we're discussing the quote so I can quote it for an exclusive-only design.

Can I cancel my Order?

Due to the time it takes to create your design, a cancellation after I have designed your item will incur design fees, a minimum of $17.99.

What stocks & inks do you use?

Each listing has the stock used for that item. Most invitations are on 100lb gloss cover. I do offer upgraded stock choices to uncoated, linen, high-gloss (looks 'wet'), and more. Each listing with a stock upgrade has a link in it to the stock upgrade location.

All of my papers have a minimum 35% recycled content, and are 100% recyclable. I print CMYK (4-color process). My inks are all linseed oil based (plant) and any coatings are water-based (Aqueous).

NOTE ABOUT COLOR: Due to the wide variety of monitor calibrations and settings, the color you see on your screen may be different from the actual color printed. Monitors view in RGB display, and prints are made in CMYK format.

What if my items arrive damaged?

All of my packages are insured; if your item arrives damaged, DO NOT DISCARD! Send me photos of the packaging and damaged items, and retain all pieces for USPS inspection for the claim.
