Crushing It

Mint Waffle was the phoenix born out of the ashes of boredom post-college-graduation. I left with a minor in popular culture and making inside jokes on greeting cards for friends. After being peer-pressured into it, I snapped poor-quality photos and listed them online with sassy jokes and media references.

When I moved from Ohio to colorful Colorado, I took the business with me and let the Rocky Mountains inspire a new identity.

After re-branding from the old Brixton Studios name, playing with fonts, and acquiring a new baby (HP color laserjet I've considered proposing to), Mint Waffle is back and creating more snark than ever.

Everything is created in Colorado in the corner of my bedroom on an IKEA desk and Target metal shelves. Sometimes my cat knocks things over. Other times my Shiba Inu pups shred a wholesale order.

Living the dream :)

    I am a 20-something dancing through life in Denver, Colorado. I enjoy hiking, graphics, reading, writing, and singing too loud in my car. I spend my days with my husband, our cat, and our two Shiba Inu puppies, plus boxes of frozen waffles.

Mint Waffle is made in Colorful Colorado. We design snarky, pop-culture-y, and just plain fun greeting cards for all your card-giving needs.

  • Pay with American Express

  • Buy with Apple Pay

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
I accept Etsy Gift Cards, PayPal, and Direct Checkout for all orders. Payment must be approved before the cards will ship.

Payment must be received before custom orders are started.

Sorry boucha residents of Colorado, but I have to charge you sales tax.
Orders will be shipped 1-4 business days after purchased (your first business day is the day after you placed your order).

All orders are shipped via USPS First Class mail with tracking.

Please keep in mind I do not control the post office. Domestic orders normally take 2-7 business days to arrive at their destinations. On occasion, weather or alien battles delay mail, but there's nothing I can do about it. Please plan accordingly, as I cannot issue refunds based on a piece of mail arriving later than the buyer wanted.

Keep this in mind around popular mail holidays.

**UPDATE: Because of the rise of shipping prices on Jan. 17, 2016, I was forced to adjust my shipping prices. The price listed is exactly the amount of shipping one card + the mailer the card will arrive in. There are no additional charges and I KNOW it's outrageous :( I've already sent some disgruntled emails.***

International orders typically take 1-6 weeks to arrive at their destinations. Fees in each country are the responsibility of the buyer. Customs may hold your package, which again we have no control over.

Please note the shipping prices for international orders. I'm sorry :( The prices to ship international packages are outrageous and I do everything I can to make sure they're as light as possible so you're charged the minimum on package shipping.

PLEASE CONVO ME if you want to ask about custom shipping on international orders. For 1 and 2 cards, the shipping is accurate based on weight, but for more the pricing varies because of weight, so feel free to send me a message and I'll weigh the number of cards and calculate shipping to your specific county.

Cards are shipped in a sturdy photo mailer so assure the product arrives in wonderful condition without being bent by a douchey mail worker angry that you got a card and he didn't. If you order 4+ cards, they will be packaged differently in clear boxes and then mailed in bubble mailers. Wholesale and bulk orders are likely to be packaged in actual boxes, but it depends on how many cards are in the order.

Each card is packaged with its envelope in a sealed poly sleeve.

If you are running behind, I am also happy to ship a card directly to the recipient with your message inside, with no additional fees. Convo me for details.

As always, if you have questions regarding shipping (or anything else), just shoot me a convo and I'll be happy to clarify.
Refunds and Exchanges
If your item arrives damaged, please snap a picture and send it to me in a convo (or email). I will gladly ship you a replacement free of charge for this inconvenience. There are no refunds for damaged items, but I will happily replace the item with a new one.

I will also happily send you a replacement if tracking has indicated your package was lost in the mail.

If you are unsatisfied for a different reason, please send me a convo and we will hash it out with the details of that specific situation. I want to make sure you're happy with the product as it's described in the listing.

Please note there are no refunds on custom items once they are printed.

Also note colors on monitors may differ, so printed colors could appear different than the ones you see on your computer.
Additional policies and FAQs
I'm happy to make your inside joke into a card or design something custom for you. As long as it isn't an extravagant design (and I already have the desired fonts / art), there is no additional cost for the design and up to two changes.

For custom items, I will send you a PDF of the design for your approval before it is printed.

To begin this process, send me a message.

Convo me for bulk pricing (beyond the listing prices of 5, 10, 15 cards) and wholesale pricing if you run a brick-and-mortar shop.
