Where paper meets random...
Much like the name of my shop, I started Randomalia... well... randomly.
Four years ago, due to a lack of funds, I lost my non-profit job working with cancer patients. While looking for a new job I also started helping friends with their parties and events to keep busy. Since I often couldn't find what I was looking for - whether it be theme, design, or color - I'd just create whatever I needed on my own. During that time I found myself making banners, invitations, decorations, even large scale design pieces. It was something I realized I loved to do and I would catch myself daydreaming about what I could create next.
I began to toy with the idea of creating an Etsy shop for myself. On a whim, I opened my shop in June of 2012 with one item - custom ice cream cups. I had a goal of making 8 sales for the year and just seeing what would happen. By the end of my first year I had added 23 more items to the shop and had made 150 sales.
My random little dream turned into a randomly wonderful little business.
I love what I do and I know I could not do it without my amazing customers! I love creating new pieces for them and tailoring my work to their needs. Each and every day in the shop brings something new, wonderful, and of course, random!

Owner, Designer, Photographer
I'm a Texas girl with a love for all things paper. You can find me most days in my office rockin' some yoga pants, drinking coffee, and working on a new paper project.
Everything you see is handmade by me and custom to what you need. My biggest goal is to make sure you not only get a beautiful product, but that fits perfectly to the occasion. If there is a color, design, phrase, etc.. you need and you don't see it in my shop, please message me and I'll do my absolute best to make sure you get it.
If you're interested in seeing more photos of my products, please check out my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/RandomaliaDesigns
Randomalia: where paper meets random. I'd love to make something for you.
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment is required before I will begin work on an order.
I ship to the address listed by you. Please verify it is correct prior to purchasing
Each item in my shop is handmade by me after you purchase the item, so it may take up to 5 business days (or longer depending on the size and complexity of the order) for the creation of your order. I will contact you with an estimated completion date after receiving all necessary information/payment for your order. Once the order is ready to ship, I use USPS shipping.
I use USPS International first class shipping. If you would like another shipping method, please contact me before ordering. Most of my orders are sent in medium to large sturdy boxes, so please be aware that it is often very costly to send via UPS, but I will gladly do so if you request it and are willing to pay the fee.
Please be aware that you will be responsible for any taxes, customs fees, or other amounts levied by your home country. Please check with your Customs office and/or Postal Service if you are concerned about possible tariffs. THIS IS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT FOR UK BUYERS! The Royal Mail is reportedly being much more vigilant in collecting VAT on purchases made through the mail. You should be prepared for the possibility of paying VAT plus a Royal Mail fee upon receipt.
***I reserve the right to refuse any international orders to any destination for any reason.***
Refunds and Exchanges
There is always a risk in shipping fragile paper products and ultimately I am not responsible for post office/delivery company delay or damage. I pack items as carefully as possible, but if you receive an order damaged in transit, I will do my best to replace the damaged pieces depending on the time sensitivity of the item. I will require that you return the damaged pieces to me.
INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: Once the item has left the US, there is no further tracking from USPS. Unless UPS with delivery confirmation is chosen, I cannot replace items lost in transit. It is up to you to follow up with your local customs office and postal service. For items damaged in transit, I will do my best to replace them, but an additional shipping charge will be required to cover the cost of international shipping.
Please contact me through Etsy with your concern within 7 days of receipt of your item(s).
