About AlisonKateDesign

Sales 898
On Etsy since 2012

The key to a good wedding is first, the right partner and second, the right vendor.

I have long loved to doodle. I began doodling invitations in 2010 as my friends starting getting married and enlisted my help with their wedding details. In 2012 I opened this Etsy shop and spent four years learning how to make lettering come to life for brides and grooms.

I have since tried many other avenues for making and selling lettered and illustrated art, but have come to realize that my true passion is providing outstanding service with an outstanding product to individuals. Because of this, I have come back to my beginnings by focusing solely on my wedding customers and continuing to offer what I believe to be the best in customer service and unique paper goods.

I hope we can work together on bringing your special day to life!

Returns and exchange details
The following refunds apply to all shop purchases _______________________

* Listing Purchased, but no design sketches started and no printing started -- 50% refund (not including shipping fee).

* Listing Purchased, Design Sketches Started, Proofs Sent -- NO REFUND.

* In the event that the customer does not respond to the proofs that are sent, the shop owner will ship the order 14 days after suitable contact as been tried. Any errors discovered after that point will not be eligible to be fixed or refunded due to the customers lack of response.

Refunds for Hand Addressed Envelopes ________________________________

Hand Lettering is not a science and will have subtle changes piece-to-piece. If you are not ok with this, I strongly suggest you go the route of typed addressing.

UNLESS SPECIFICALLY STATED, please expect small inconsistencies piece-to-piece (i.e., slightly different spacing due to length of lines, Abbreviations of States, etc). If you DO NOT WISH to have any abbreviations made, and/or you have strong preferences about the consistency of your designs as a body of work, you MUST explicitly requests this prior to design. No refunds will be given based on State Abbreviations, or Abbreviations for RD, AVE, CR, CT, DR, commas, line breaks, etc).

Change in Order Amount: Should you order too many pieces and need a refund for pieces paid for, but not needed, you have 1 Full Week to let me know. After that 7 day window has passed, no change in order amount will be refunded.

Lost/Damaged Items ____________________________________________________

Should your item be lost/damaged by the postal carrier, a replacement piece will be sent in its place once we are notified.

Should your item be lost and it is due to a customer error (i.e., incorrect address, stolen off a doorstep that was not secured or left unattended), the customer must pay a re-sending fee of

--50%+shipping for all non-custom work
--100%+shipping for ALL HAND STAMPS
-- unfortunately, 100%+shipping for any custom pieces (i.e., envelope addressing, non-replicated art pieces).
I currently accept payment through Pay-Pal, Direct Check-Out and Etsy Gift Cards. Payment must be received before I will proceed with any design. Custom Listings, once agreed upon, must be purchased before custom design will start.

All orders must be paid in full at the time of purchase. No exceptions, please.

Please be aware that all Listings for Programs, Menus and Wedding Invitations are subject to a 50 piece minimum order. This minimum is subject to change at any point and Alison Kate Design will take no responsibility for listings purchased that disregard this minimum.

Single Piece orders may be placed as Custom Orders ONLY and listings may not be purchased as a single piece.
** I ship all packages using USPS Priority and First Class. All include Arrival Confirmation.

Please notify me if you need an order rush shipped. Based on what the item is, I will let you know if it requires rush shipping or not to be received on time.

CUSTOM RUSH ORDERS ___________________________________________
On a person-to-person basis. Please let me know the date you need your item by and I will let you know whether it is considered a rush item.
