    If you're lucky enough to have found Blue Aloe, stop your searching for anything else because Sara is awesome!! My mom sent her a few of my wedding pins and just based on 2-3 pictures, she designed a wedding invitation that spurred a cohesive theme throughout my wedding. We received so many compliments about the invitations with people saying they were the best ones they'd ever received! She also helped with paper goods for the day of the event as well as customized thank you cards, all of which were of high quality and in line with our vision (including recycled paper since having a low ecological footprint is important to us.) Sara really has an eye for detail and takes the time to learn about her clients so that she can create a really unique and meaningful product for them. I absolutely loved working with her & you will too!

About

blue aloe designs

After years of designing for family, friends and myself I finally decided to open up my own Etsy shop in December of 2013 and sell to the public. I enjoy designing a mix of traditional and not so traditional invitations. So in the store you will find quite an eclectic assortment of listings.

Event planning is an exciting time with tons of choices to be made, and we would like to help by creating your ideal invitations. From the designs, to the meticulously chosen cardstock and assembly, all the work is created diligently by hand. Every client becomes a part of our lives when working on your paper goods and we strive to complement your event with our invitations.

Additional policies and FAQs
► All invoice correspondence will be sent via Etsy convos and/or the email you have associated with your Etsy account, unless otherwise specified. Please use the same email address for all communication to avoid confusion.

----- {SAMPLES} -----

First and foremost, we recommend that you order an invitation sample in the design you are interested in. Colors vary greatly from monitor to monitor and unique paper effects such as the Metallic and Metallic Linen are nearly impossible to mimic with photographs. Samples are generic and you will be sent exactly what is pictured in the sample listing; wording and colors are not customized on a sample.

Although wording and colors cannot be customized on a sample, it still gives you a good feeling of your potential invitation. You can also request free swatches (up to 5) of your wedding colors to be included with the sample. Because we carry such a large amount of colors, we cannot stock all of them on site. So keep in mind that some samples can take 1-2 weeks to arrive. If your requested color swatches are not in stock, we will ship them separately from your invitation sample so you do not have to wait. All samples will be shipped for free via USPS First Class Mail and will be credited if an order is placed.

*** All other color choices can be viewed at our website: www.bluealoedesigns.com

----- {THE ORDERING PROCESS} -----

► A minimum of 25 invitations is required for all purchases (Birthday Invitations minimum is 20)

The next step to ordering is to purchase a deposit listing for your chosen design. After that you will be sent a client questionnaire for more information about your event and a plethora of other information so that we can ensure a beautiful product. Once the questionnaire is received, we will email you a digital PDF proof of your invitation within 2-4 business days, along with an amount for your full order. After the first round of proofing, 50% of your total, less the deposit, will be due.

Together we will go through unlimited rounds of digital proofing to guarantee you are 100% satisfied with your invitation design. After the final proof approval and the remaining balance is fulfilled, printing will begin. Printing and assembly of your order will take place 5-10 business days (for simple 5x7 invitations) or 10-15 business days (for pocketfold suites) from the final approval.

**Please allow 2-4 business days for each proof revision, with 3-5 business days for certain custom map designs.

----- {ASSEMBLY} -----

If your order consists of a cardstock backing layer or is a pocketfold wedding invitation suite, it will be fully assembled by blue aloe designs (we will mount the layers and place enclosures into the pocketfold).

However, if you have a pocketfold wedding invitation suite, or a suite that is binded with twine or a belly band, then the client is responsible for this last part of assembly. This is to enable you the ability to address your RSVP envelopes.

Therefore, for example, you will have to slide the belly band on, or tie the twine on your invitations. We will include a finished invitation to serve as an example.

----- {POSTAGE} -----

Please keep in mind that every invitation option, once stuffed, may vary in cost for you to mail out to your guests. It is best to take a completed invite to your local post office to figure the cost before you mail.

----- {DISCOUNTS & PROMOTIONS} -----

150+ invitations will be discounted 5% of the total price
200+ invitations will be discounted 10% of the total price
250+ invitations will be discounted 15% of the total price
