About BeforeTheRings

Sales 45,007
On Etsy since 2015

BeforeTheRings started in 2015, inspired by my own wedding and my never ending love to create and design things!

My name is Alyssa Lindell and I just want to start by saying thank you for browsing my shop and looking at my items! By supporting my small business, you are supporting my family of 6!

A little bit about myself. First, I am a Christian and I bring my values and faith to my Etsy shop. My ultimate goal is to make customers happy and in the end, bring a smile to people's faces with my unique items.

I am 34 years old, a strong Christian, a wife, and a Mom to 4 awesome little boys! My shop started when I was inspired by all the DIY I did for my own wedding on July 4th 2014. Everywhere I looked, I just couldn't find the exact items I was looking for... So, I decided to make them myself.

As a prior teacher, I wanted something to do in the summers on my time off. Then, one day, someone mentioned to me that I should put my wedding things on Etsy. A little hesitant at first, but I decided to take a leap of faith and check it out.

Now going on 8 years, I am so thankful and blessed to be able to do this full time! I love my customers and I love designing new things! I get inspired all the time by people's requests and ideas. I love adding new equipment and abilities to my shop and I do it often!! I am just in awe over all of you and this amazing journey!

PS. Check out my other shop TheMuggShop for Christian Apparel, jewelry and mugs.

Thanks for reading and Enjoy my shop!

Frequently asked questions
How soon will I receive my invitations after I place my order?

For invitations, as soon as you order, a proof will be sent within 24-48 hours of your order, sometimes sooner. Once you approve, it takes about 3-5 days to make them and ship them out. They ship priority mail with tracking. All in all, one week from your order or less depending on your response time. If needed sooner, we can also accommodate, just ask. I love helping in any way I can.

Can I pay for faster shipping?

Yes, You can upgrade to priority 1-2 day mail. This does not mean that production time is faster. Items usually take 1-2 days to make. They will then ship with a quicker shipping speed. If you need an item much sooner, just message me and we can work out the details. I also offer rush 1-day completion in my shop. This means your order will go out the same or next day. Shipping speed will be priority 1-2 day mail, not express overnight. Message me if you need express overnight.

I need this next day, is this possible?

Yes and no. You will have to pay for overnight shipping and a rush order fee. Message me for details prior to checking out so you can see what your costs will be. Some areas of the country do not accept overnight with USPS. I am on the East coast, so sometimes the west coast may be 2 days no matter what shipping method.

Custom and personalized orders

If you need a bigger or smaller shirt and it isn't name customized, I will accept an exchange and will send out a new shirt. You are responsible for shipping back to me and shipping for your new order. I will give you details about all of that.

Custom and personalized orders

For invitations and other stationary: All stationary items go through a proofing process where the customer is responsible for approving their order before printing. Once it is approved, a typo can not be corrected. You will have to reorder your items if desired.
For other items: For a mock up or picture of your item prior to shipping, it is your responsibility and must be specified in the personalized section at checkout. This is the ONLY way to include that you want a proof. I cannot see previous messages that we had in conversations; and therefore, cannot accommodate custom requests unless they are in the personalized section.

Do labels come attached to tic tags or chap sticks?

All orders that include labels are easy to remove and simply peel and stick to items. Labels will not come attached to anything, this is a DIY step.

An item is incorrect or broken, now what?

Message me right away so we can fix this issue. With pictures, I can replace the items that are damaged at no cost to you.

How Quick do Gift Box Sets Ship?

For other orders, boxes, personalized gifts, etc. I try to ship within 1 or 2 days, sometimes the same day depending on the level of busyness and the time of order. In rare cases, your orders may take 3 days to ship. Message me if you need ASAP or pay for rush 1-day completion to guarantee it goes out the same or next day.

Are your Mugs made with stickers or vinyl?

No, our mugs are printed with sublimation ink and go through a sublimation process so the design is printed INTO the mug. The design is meant to last forever. We still encourage hand washing to preserve the mug as long as possible, but these are dishwasher safe. We cannot replace a mug that gets damaged in the dishwasher because we encourage hand washing for preserving the design.
