Care instructions

Spot clean when needed. Allow to air dry. You may also feel comfortable ironing these as needed.

Can I see a proof of my order before it ships?

Personalized Hankies:
We do NOT provide proofing of these items.

Invitation, Program, and Second Line Hankies:
Will ALWAYS receive proofing service
Keep in mind that once we provide you with a proof, we will retain a non refundable design fee of $50, if you chose not to move forward with your project.

How long until my order ships?

Because of the handmade nature of our items, please check the individual listings for production time frames. They will be clearly stated. Custom items may have a longer processing time.

Due to the volume of orders we receive, we cannot accommodate rush orders.

You can also easily check the anticipated ship date of your item under you Purchases tab or on the copy of your order confirmation email. Please check these places first before emailing us for an update.

Can I use my own message?

Yes, you can!! Just note the following:

We will not accommodate wording changes after your order is placed. Please review your order carefully before submitting it to us. And be sure to ask us any questions you may have prior to purchasing.

We reserve the right to refuse printing of custom messages if they are copy-written phrases or poems owned by another.

Our custom message items are not a custom designed item. Your items will be formatted as pictured and personalized with your provided details. We offer a variety of font, message structuring, and stylized graphics for you to chose from. Rest assured we will carry through the identical fonts, layout structure and design elements as shown.

Hey LADY!!!! You messed something up!!!!

We pride ourselves in attention to detail. However, at the end of the day, we are all human! I would love to say that that The Bee is spelling error free every time!

Although we strive to make every single order perfect, we know that can't be true 100% of the time.

If you receive something that is incorrect, please feel free to contact us immediately!! We will do everything in our power to expedite a replacement out to you. If time does not allow for that or there is another concern, we are happy to refund you in full.

How are these made?

Great question! These are customized and printed directly unto the fabric with a specialty eco-friendly, pigment based ink which are suitable for fabric printing. Because of this you can safely spot clean and iron your hankies.

This printing technique allows us to maintain crisp text and graphic and a lot of flexibility with text allowance.

These are NOT embroidered hankies. We do NOT use heat transfers, which can leave an unsightly area of demarcation around the text and design.

I left you a note with my purchase, why aren't you answering me?

Please, for the love of everything holy, do not place questions you would like a timely answer to in the notes section of your order!! We typically look over these when we are beginning to process your order. We have far too many orders per day to see each and every one that funnels in. This is NOT a good place to ask "Will this ship out tomorrow" or "I need this by next week".

I want to order multiple hankies, can you combine my orders?

You can add multiple items to your cart and purchase ALL the items you would like together. The shipping auto-calculates based on the weight of the items you have in your cart. There is ample room to provide all your order details for each item at checkout.

If you chose to purchase each item separately and make multiple orders, you will end up paying duplicate shipping charges. Please be mindful that we are not responsible to organize all your orders together and consolidate the shipping. You will receive multiple packages and you will not be refunded for shipping overages.

Can I add an item to my order?

You will need to place that order separately. We do not have the ability to add to your existing order.

Because you love our stuff so much, we will be happy to consolidate your shipping and refund you for any overage you pay.
