About

Chicks n Hens

Hi! My name is Alizabeth. (You can call me Liz!) I'm the founder, creative spirt, and sole creator here at Chicks n Hens. The name "Chicks n Hens" was inspired by fond memories of my grandmother growing chickens and hens (succulents) in her garden, and sharing them with me every summer. My grandma's passion for painting has inspired me to pursue my creative dreams, and ensure I’m always doing something in life that I love. 

I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Purdue University. I am inspired by whimsical design elements, vintage charm, and happy colors. I work straight from photographs and descriptions to create custom illustrations which reflect my clients’ families, pets, personalities, events, and homes. Focusing on custom designs makes every day a new and exciting one. I love that no two projects are exactly the same. I personally handle every aspect of Chicks n Hens in my studio space, from preliminary sketches, to printing, assembling, and shipping. 

Chicks n Hens is proud to have been Etsy's Featured Shop!

Thank you for stopping by! :)
I'm Liz! Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

CHICKS N HENS WILL BE CLOSED (ALL DESIGN & PRODUCTION WORK WILL CEASE) DURING THE MONTHS OF FEBRUARY 2017 & MARCH 2017, AS I WILL BE ON MATERNITY LEAVE. PLEASE PLAN YOUR PROJECTS ACCORDINGLY!!


TIMING ********

(TIMING VARIES!)
+ For custom illustrations, the quoted timing for each phase of the design process (design, revision, and production) are ROUGH ESTIMATES based on previous projects. Timing does vary from client to client. I recommend placing your order as soon as possible, and allowing a little extra time for each phase in the design process.

(READ THE TIMING PRIOR TO PURCHASING!)
+ Designs fees for custom illustrations are non-refundable, even if you do not read timing prior to purchasing and find the timing does not work for your project after purchasing. Read about wedding timing here: http://www.chicks-n-hens.com/#!wedding-info/c5ld , or contact me for a quote.

(EMAILS & FORMS / 60 DAYS TO RETURN QUESTIONNAIRE)
+ Your responsiveness to emails and returning required forms has a great impact on the schedule for your project.
+ Please take your time filling out your questionnaire. It is helpful to my design process if you can submit a fully completed questionnaire.
+ You must return your questionnaire within 60 days of purchase. If you are unable to return the questionnaire within that timeline your project is subject to cancellation (without refund), or changes in the quoted timeline, card stock selection, etc. can occur.
+ If your project contains multiple custom designs, such as save the dates and invitations, please return the questionnaire for the first project within your bundle within 60 days. The timeline for the second project would begin at completion of the first, meaning you would have 60 additional days after the save the date prints ship to return your invitation questionnaire and begin that project.

(RUSH ORDERS)
+ The only way to receive GUARANTEED DELIVERY DATES for your custom project is to purchase a rush order for a fee. I accept a limited number of rush orders, and they are first come first serve.
+ I am unable to rush any phase of your project without a rush order purchase.
+ You must return your completed questionnaire for a rush order no later than 14 days from the purchase date. If you do not return the questionnaire within 2 weeks from purchase date, you order will not be eligible for guaranteed rush order timing, and refunds for the rush order fee will not be provided.

  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Buy with Apple Pay

Shipping
SHIPPING********

(ALL PACKAGES)
+ Packages will ship to the address associated with your Etsy account. I will not verify the shipping address before your package ships. PLEASE contact me ASAP if you would like your package sent to a different address. In the event that you provide the wrong shipping address, refunds will not be provided for the lost package.
+ All packages from Chicks n Hens are sent with tracking and insurance (except samples).
+ All print orders over $300 will require a signature upon delivery. Please contact me to add a signature requirement, or remove the signature requirement if your print order is over $300.
+ Please remember, I cannot personally guarantee estimated delivery dates provided by the USPS. Unfortunately, after the package leaves my hands the timing is completely out of my control.
+ If your package is lost or damaged during shipment by the USPS I will file a claim with the USPS. The timeframe for the refund or resolution from the USPS is out of my hands beyond that point. I cannot personally offer refunds for packages lost or damaged by the USPS, as this will be covered by the USPS insurance. In the event that a package is damaged, you must keep all original packaging for the USPS to review. In the case of damage, you must contact me within 10 business days of delivery in order for me to file a claim.

(INTERNATIONAL PACKAGES)
+ Sometimes packages are delayed in customs. You will be responsible for any customs fees you may incur.
+ If you are in a hurry to receive your prints, I suggest going with digital files and printing locally.
Refunds and Exchanges
REFFUNDS********

(REFUNDS / CANCELLATIONS / TRANSFERS)
+ ALL SALES ARE FINAL.
+ NO REFUNDS
+ NO EXCHANGES
+ DESIGN FEES ARE NON-TRANSFERRABLE
+ Design fees are non-refundable even if you decide not to proceed with the design process for ANY reason. (Think of the design fee as a payment for the time it takes to create your custom illustration, AND ALSO a placeholder for your project on my schedule.)
+ If you have concerns about color, paper thickness, or quality – ORDER A SAMPLE prior to purchasing.

(ERRORS / MISTAKES / TYPOS)
+ Chicks n Hens is not responsible for ANY errors (design, spelling, or grammatical) found on your designs after you approve your final samples. I do my best to ensure every design is perfect, but ultimately it is your responsibility read over and approve your design samples for printing. (This applies to print orders AND digital file orders.)
+ Please look over your designs carefully. I highly recommend having a second person also proofread your designs.
+ Often the text provided on the questionnaire is rewritten / rearranged to fit on your design, so please use the actual design samples to proofread and approve your designs. (Remember, revisions to the wording are free and unlimited!)
+ Designs are printed exactly as they appear when you approve them. Any errors discovered after printing will mean that you need to pay for reprints, even if the error was my fault. Refunds will NOT be provided for errors.
Additional policies and FAQs
(PRINTS VS. DIGITAL FILES)
+ You must decide between prints or the digital files at the time your questionnaire is returned. Orders cannot be changed from print orders to digital file orders or vice versa after the questionnaire is submitted.

(PAPER AND PRINT QUALITY)
+ Samples are ALWAYS available if you would like to feel the paper and see the print quality before placing your full order for prints.
+ You can even purchase a sample of your exact invitation design before purchasing all of your prints, so there won't be any surprises!
+ Remember, colors can vary slightly from computer to computer, and from the computer to the printer.
+ Chicks n Hens is proud to be considered a "handmade" illustration & print shop. Print dimensions may vary slightly (by a smidge!), as Chicks n Hens prints are each lovingly cut by hand.

(DIGITAL FILES AND OWNERSHIP)
+ I own the rights to my designs and illustrations.
+ I reserve the right to display or use the custom design created for you on my main website, social media outlets, etc.
+ I am happy to alter any personal information prior to sharing per your request (such as last names, etc.).
+ Final high-resolution digital files will be sent as flattened PDF and JPEG files meant for printing only. Editable / working / design files are never for sale.
+ Please do not take portions of my designs or illustrations to reuse, alter, resell, or post anywhere without my written permission. These are MY designs, and are meant to be printed exactly as is.
+ Ordering digital files means you or your local print shop will be responsible for the entire printing process including printer settings, color matching, paper selection, document set up, and bleed requirements for the specific printer used, etc. Any of these items are beyond the services provided with digital file orders.
+ If you have concerns about printing, paper quality, and / or the work involved with printing, cutting, and assembling your invitations on your own I highly recommend ordering your prints from Chicks n Hens.
+ You will need to coordinate and communicate with whatever print shop you choose. Communication between Chicks n Hens and a third party printer is not included with digital file orders.
THIS IS A *DO IT YOURSELF* OPTION.

*Sometimes photographs within listings and on my website contain upgrades and additional items not included in the design fee rate. (This can include, but is not limited to: addressed envelopes, vintage stamps, embellishments, props, upgraded designs, more detailed illustrations, etc.) These items are meant to show previous projects, upgrade possibilities, illustration add-ons, as well as an example of finished invitations. Please READ the listing description on exactly what is included in the design fee rate.
