Frequently asked questions

What is your processing time?

I will send a digital layout in a convo within 2 b. days for all customized orders. Please approve or provide any changes within 48 hours. If no changes/approval is provided in 3 b. days, I will proceed with production and will customize the item with the information already sent to me.
Production will start once layout is approved. Production time will be as stated in the listing or the Ship by date. If you order a larger quantity, additional time may be added to production schedule.
When the order is complete, it will ship that day or the morning after.
Tracking will be added, please see your "Purchases".

What is included in my order?

Each listing provides a detailed description of what will be included. Please read that before contacting me. I will gladly customize your order to include a box, an extra insert, a mailing tube or anything else you may need - for an additional fee. Please inquire.

Can I RUSH my order?

Please contact me if you need an item faster than the posted "Ship by date" before placing an order. If my schedule allows, a RUSH fee for faster production can be added to your order. Some individual items are listed with rush option, please make sure the posted processing time meets your needs.
All customized items need at least 2 b. days for layout and production.

For fastest delivery, in addition to rush production please also purchase expedited shipping. Please provide your address when inquiring about shipping speed upgrade.

I requested a quicker deadline in my notes to you, is that OK?

Unfortunately, as a strictly hand made shop with a busy schedule, if you did not contact me before placing the order to see if the rush was even possible, or did not purchase RUSH production, I will not check your notes unless it's time to work on the layout. So please do not request a faster deadline for an item with a specific processing time in your Notes, it will not be honored.

I sent you 3 convos today already, when will you answer?

Please allow me up to 24 hours to reply to all inquiries.
My business hours are 9-5pm Monday-Friday. I slack on weekends and all major holidays - I need time to rest, to tickle my kids or to spruce up my shop. If you sent me 3 convos after regular business hours and have not heard back, rest assured I will reply as soon as I reopen my shop on the next business day.

How can I send customization info?

Please send all your customization info when you place your order in the "Notes to shop" textbox, or in a separate convo. I do not proofread or edit, I merely copy/paste/format the wording you send. Please also send you font/color specifications at the same time. I prefer one convo to several.
Please send wording as text I can copy/paste - not as a jpeg or pdf attachment. Please do not send it as a separate email with Word attachment - I do not open those. If you send wording with detailed font style/color directions, please make sure to send a clean copy of the text as well.

I want to add an image I have or alter the design, can I do that?

Please contact me before placing an order. I do not print photos, but if you have a monogram or logo you would like to add, or your own design to print, I'd be happy to do so for an extra fee.

What do you mean by "custom"?

By "custom" I mean a layout created with your own wording and font style/color choices from the provided charts.
"Custom" does not mean altering my existing designs, matching colors to something I do not offer, or altering someone else's design to fit on my items.

I found this great poem or lyric, can you print it?

I do not offer to print copyrighted text or illustrations, or trademarked phrases, or offer to use licensed characters.

I changed my mind/no longer need it/it arrived damaged, can I return it?

Custom made items are non-returnable and non-refundable. Special circumstances:
If the venue changed and you need to find a new one, if the wedding was canceled, or need to reschedule please contact me asap. It may be possible to cancel an order if it has not gone to production yet, minus a restocking fee. After production has started, the order will ship, sorry about that.

For all non-custom items, please contact me first for an authorization. Items sent back without authorization or tracking will not be refunded.

If the item arrives damaged, please document it so I can open a claim with the shipping provider and hold on to the item. I will not issue a refund but I will exchange the damaged item.
