About beyonddesign

Sales 6,994
On Etsy since 2007

Life is too short to be ordinary...

Hello world — I’m happy to have you visit!
Serendipity Beyond Design was born out of a passion to create unique invitations using layers of beautiful papers, envelope liners and embellishments – stationery that tells a story from the moment your guests open the envelope! I’ve always been inspired by vintage textures, antique maps and natural wood elements. I’m happiest when I am creating one-of-a-kind keepsakes for my clients and their guests. After all, life is too short to be ordinary!

Oh, and my favorite color is pink (any shade). I love flowery tattoos, white wine, iced coffee and cardio (you know, all the things). I have a Westie puppy named Mavis, and she also loves pink (she’s meh about tattoos). If you pop in the studio she will be sure to great you very enthusiastically.
XOXO, Ginger

Below is the nitty gritty (sorry, we have to have it all written out). However, we get it - there's a lot to read! Before you get overwhelmed, just give us a call, and we will walk you through it in about 5 minutes! :)

------------------------------WHAT CAN BE CUSTOMIZED---------------------------------
Any design in our store can be customized, oh yes! This includes fonts, colors, locations, maps, graphics, etc. - that is why you are purchasing what we call a "DESIGN FEE" to get started. The options are pretty much limitless, and we like pushing the envelope! See a design you like, but not a whole suite? Yes, we can customize the suite to reflect the items you need (additional inserts, embellishments, maps, etc.). If you don't see what you are looking for, consider the designs/photos shown as a jumping off point for your own custom design.

(Please note we do not sell digital file of our invitations, nor do we sell just the wooden embellishments or boarding pass sleeves/jackets.)

----------------------THE PROCESS, IN A NUTSHELL----------------------
How the heck does this work, you are asking? We know it can be overwhelming, but don't worry! We are nice people who are honored that you have read this far. :) Below you will find a summary of our process, but for an easier to navigate, and more detailed information on our process and more, visit our website at www.serendipitybeyonddesign.com

1. Purchase the Design Fee** you like best from our Etsy store: http://www.etsy.com/shop/beyonddesign?ref=si_shop.

We will email you within 1 business day with the next steps in customizing your order, which includes filling out an online design form to provide your details and wording.

2. Submit Design Form with the information, details and inspiration for your custom design, your random thoughts/sketches, whatever you think will help us with your vision! Pinterest boards are welcome!

3. We will begin your design and email you digital proofs for review (all proofing is done online). Yup, this is where it gets exciting! How long does the design take? Most designs can be completed in a few days, custom illustrations and more complex may take longer.
You get 3 rounds of proofs included with your design fee, each additional proof beyond those 3 will be $10 per proof.

4. Once the artwork is approved, a physical sample of your custom design can be mailed to you (this is included in your Design Fee purchase). It's getting "REAL" at this point. :)

5. Confirm the quantity of stationery needed and an invoice will be emailed to you so we can begin production. Wooot! How long does production take? Postcards take 7-10 business days, other orders take 15 business days (refer to the deign fee purchased for listed production times).

6. You get compliments on how unique your invitations are and your guests say how they can not wait for your event! It's likely that if an RSVP is in your suite, your guests will not want to mail it back because it's so AWESOME and they can't bear to part with it. It happens all the time.


------------------------------REQUEST SAMPLES------------------------------
Whoa, you don't want to purchase a design fee until you see a sample first?
No problem! Purchase samples of previously designed stationery here:
http://www.etsy.com/shop/beyonddesign?section_id=5378973


------------------------------ABOUT THE DESIGN FEE---------------------------------
Due to the custom nature of our work, ALL orders require the purchase of a Design Fee listing. (This fee also covers the design time spent on customizing the design for you and the press set-up of your stationery for printing.) By purchasing a Design Fee listing, you are reserving a spot with us and starting the process for your own custom design!

Your Design Fee includes:
• 3 emailed proofs in JPG or PDF format (There is a $10 fee per proof after the first 3 proofs)
• 1 hard copy sent via USPS mail*

The design fee is a separate cost and does not go towards the cost of the printed items. Please note that the Design Fee is non-refundable in the event that you decide not to place your order with us - this applies only if we have submitted your info and we have started the design. The design fee is non-refundable after 30 days, regardless if the design has been started or not.

Should you change your mind through the proofing process and want a whole new design different than what has already been purchased, then a full new design fee will apply. This design fee will start the process over and allot you with 3 new proofs. It may also delay production. Once the artwork has been submitted for production, no changes can be made.

------------------------------GET A QUOTE-------------------------------
How much will all of this awesomeness cost you? All pricing per invite is stated in the description and varies on the design styles - you can simply multiply the quantity you need by the price per invite stated to get your price (please be mindful of the minimum order required, stated below the listed price). Or you can get crazy and get a quote! Our online system lets you play with all of the options, and will even email it to you for reference. Sweet, right? www.serendipitybeyonddesign.com

Are there hidden fees? Heck no!
Other than your printed items there are no other costs other than your design fee(s) and shipping. If your order total is over $250 on the final invoice, there is a 3% convenience fee to process your order via credit card or PayPal. To avoid this fee, you have the option of paying for invoice via check or money order.

Orders need to be in increments of 5, and there is a minimum order of 30 for all items.

---------------------TIMING FOR THE DESIGN & PRODUCTION --------------------
Due to the custom nature of our work, the first design proof can take 5-10 business days, depending on our schedule at the time. Every order is important to us and we strive to get the designs to you as quick as possible. However, this is a creative process and proofing times can vary.

Please view the link below for our current proofing and process turnaround times: https://www.serendipitybeyonddesign.com/?s=turnaround+times
