5 out of 5 stars

I had been monitoring this product for a while but wasn't sure what we were going to do about table cards. I fell in with the gray and lace as it fit the theme of our wedding. So finally I decided I would move forward with it. Caroline worked great with understanding the customizations we wanted. She had recommended a lighter purple but she showed us the plum we wanted and it came out great. She also did great with getting it to us on time. I was really concerned but she truly made it happen. I cannot wait to display the table cards, table numbers and signs.

About

A New Beginning

I started this business from my living room in 2007. I would work evenings to fulfill orders while working my full-time position during the day. It was a hobby back then that had the potential to bloom into a full time business and bloom it did. In 2009, I started selling on etsy part-time and after many long nights of assembling and proofing orders I went full time. In the fall of 2010 I was able to quit my full time job and pursue my dream of owning my own business!

It's been a lot of hard work but I've never looked back once. I love doing what I do and creating what I love! My paper creations are ever varying in style as I am but I think a general sense of vintage or old world style is visible in my collections.

My background is in Art History, the Italian Renaissance in particular and I think that some of that influence does show through strongly in my work. I've also spent many years in museums and among antiques studying painting and sculpture. I didn't know how affected I was by what I studied my entire life until I started designing and seeing a trend in everything I made. This business brought everything full circle for me because I was never happy just analyzing art on a wall, I wanted to create art myself and have the satisfaction of knowing others could use it and enjoy it too!

Sometimes we're lucky enough to find what we are meant to do and actually be able to do it. We just have to be brave enough to grasp the opportunity when it comes along. I think that's the key to starting anything in life. I hope you enjoy my stationery as much as I do!

2. Samples are shipped via First Class USPS mail. If a specific color is out of stock I will notify you immediately and give you the option of a refund or a choice of other colors.

Standard Sample Order Timeline: Ships within 5 business days after purchase.

Custom Sample Order Timeline: Ships 5-7 days after purchase.You may request a color swatch with a standard order sample to avoid the longer timeline for the custom sample order.

3. Orders are typically shipped via USPS Priority Mail with delivery confirmation. Orders over $300 receive automatic insurance. If you would like insurance on an order that is less than $300, please let me know and I will add it in the cost.

4. If you approve your final proof(s) within 7 days of your event date, It is highly recommended that you upgrade to usps express shipping. Please request a quote because it varies by location. This service guarantees a delivery date and will save many hours of frustration and worry if you are close to your event date.

5. INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: If you are international, please convo me first for specific ship rates. When shipping internationally, customs, taxes, brokerage and other import fees are the responsibility of the buyer. Our international shipping prices do not include any taxes or other fees that may be applied to your order upon delivery in your home country. Payment of customs, taxes, duties and all other fees associated with buying overseas merchandise is the responsibility of the buyer. Please check your home country’s rules on purchasing merchandise from the US for more information.

6. Rush Orders are charged a flat 15% fee. Shipping may vary depending on your locations.

7. Please be advised that while I will do everything possible to get your item(s) to you, I cannot be responsible for any lost items during the shipping process.
Refunds and Exchanges
1. If the order deviates from the finalized proof, then I will issue an exchange. If there is a printing error, I am happy to reprint your order at no cost. I offer unlimited proofs so you may edit your design as many times as you want before finalizing the proof for printing. (Hip, Hip, Hooray!)

2. Due to the fact that everything is handmade and custom, there will be no returns. Only the replacement of damaged items will be possible or if the item deviates from the approved finalized proof. In the event of a cancellation, your 50% deposit cannot be refunded. This initial payment is used to purchase materials for your custom order.

3. Please check your order within 7 days of its arrival at your shipping address. I will not be responsible for any errors (printing or otherwise) after this time period.

4. If you have concerns with your order or are unhappy, please contact me first. Customer service is VERY important to me! I try to make each client as happy as possible with their order.
Additional policies and FAQs
MINIMUM ORDER QUANTITY: 25

DESIGN PROCESS: All of my clients receive unlimited digital proofs. When I have finished designing your order, I will send you a digital proof via email where you will view the design and then send me any edits that are necessary. For non-custom orders, you should receive your first proof within 2-3 days of providing me with the necessary information.

PROOFS: An approval of the design and text is needed before I print. Once you have agreed that the proof is 100% what you wanted, I will begin the printing and assembly process and then ship the set to you. Once a proof is finalized by you, the printed items are final.

PROOF READING: I do not proof read because everyone has different spellings of names, places etc. This is solely your responsibility. It is very important for you to carefully review the digital proof for accuracy.

RUSH ORDERS: If it is 1 1/2 weeks or less before your wedding (placecards/signs excluded), a rush fee will apply. If you need a general rush on your invitations a rush fee will apply as well. The rush fee is a 15% upcharge. You must be willing to ship express mail in order to receive your order in time.

CUSTOM ORDERS: I would be happy to work with you on any custom design within your time line! Please email or convo me with your ideas. Photos, links, pinterest pages are all welcome!

Thank you!
