Welcome to my shop!

Growing up, my parents always made sure that every birthday party was extra special and that all of life's great events were celebrated to the fullest... The invitation sets the tone for a party, and designing them with my mom was always my favorite part. A love of creating incredible celebrations definitely stuck with me and once I started making invitations and stationery, I just couldn't stop! Playing even a small role in the most memorable occasions in people's lives is something that truly makes me smile.

Pre-Paper, I was busy creating with a sewing machine! In 2007, I started making tote bags out of old t-shirts and I happily made them for my friends as they all started to ask for one. Within months, they were in stores across the US, and since most of the t-shirts I had at the time were from my dad's gigantic beer t-shirt collection, the Brew Bag was born and so was Poison Ivy Designs... PID for short.

Operating out of my Queens, NY apartment, where I live with my husband and our sweet little pup, I specialize in making one-of-a-kind, handmade wedding and event invitations, stationery, favors, accessories, decor and gifts. I still find so much joy in taking something old and making it new again with my upcycled totes, clutches and pillows made from recycled t-shirts and ties. When I'm swimming in work, and need some assistance with orders, my mom and my sister are my best helpers!

It means so much to me when someone chooses me to help make their event come to life or purchases my stationery or gifts to spread love to their family and friends... So from the bottom of my heart, thank you for stopping by my shop!

♡Thank you for visiting my shop! I'd love to create something beautiful for you!
{Please take a look at my "shop announcements" for some current product information.}

♡For custom orders under $500, payment is due before the design process will begin. I will, of course, answer any questions you have beforehand, but designing/proofs/etc. will not begin until payment has been received. A custom listing will be set up just for you once we solidify what you're ordering! If the estimate for your custom order is over $500, I will set up a deposit listing for 50% of the estimated total before designing begins and the balance will be due before shipping. Always feel free to contact me with any questions!

Returns and exchange details
I want you to be happy with your order!!! IF YOU ARE NOT SATISFIED WITH ANYTHING YOU PURCHASE FROM ME, I WILL GLADLY EXCHANGE IT FOR AN ITEM OF THE SAME PRICE OR GIVE YOU A CREDIT TO MY SHOP! If for some reason, there is a true mistake on my part, I will absolutely issue a refund if you don't want it replaced immediately.

There are no refunds for digital items, as they are downloaded on your end. However, if you have any problems with the file or working with the file at all, I am always available to help you until it's working for you!!!
We accept payment through Etsy & PayPal.
Your item will be available to download through Etsy within minutes after your purchase.

Your item(s) will be shipped as listed after receipt of payment for your order. I use whichever shipping method is most cost effective for you, which is most often USPS Ground Shipping (once in a while, FedEx or UPS is less expensive), and you will receive a Delivery Confirmation Number to track your order once shipped. If you would like to upgrade to a faster rate of shipping, or have a carrier preference, please contact me and I'll let you know if it's possible!

For completely custom orders, production time varies, but a ship date will be determined based on what you'd like me to make you and how many you need... all that good stuff. I will let you know the timing before you purchase :)

***I am not responsible for any items after they leave my shop. If an item is lost in transit or cannot be delivered, the buyer must contact the shipping company (it will be listed in the notification you receive when it's shipped) to resolve any shipping issues and or file any claims with that shipping company so the item can arrive safely to them. Once it leaves my shop, I cannot be responsible for any item not being delivered as it is then out of our hands and shipped to the address that was provided at checkout. If you would like to add "signature confirmation" to the shipping, please contact me and I will set up a listing for you to purchase the additional shipping cost.
Additional policies and FAQs
Every single thing that I make has been hand made by me, and some products are made from recycled materials... no piece is "perfect". I consider any slight imperfections to be part of the beauty, but if your piece has an imperfection that you just can't live with, I'll gladly exchange it for you or give you a credit to use in the future at my shop!

A large part of my business has been built on custom orders, I truly LOVE doing them! Message me with information or questions about anything you're looking to have made!

Interested in placing a wholesale order? Message me and I'll tell you how!

*** If you're ordering a gift to be sent directly to the person, please let me know in the "notes" section of your order and I will make sure not to include any pricing information in the package (not that I normally do, but just in case you were wondering)... I'll also gladly include a card with whatever you'd like it to say at no additional cost!
When you pay via Etsy or PayPal, I never see your credit card information, so you can rest assured that your information is completely safe on my end! By purchasing from me, you are opting-in to Poison Ivy Designs' email list, but your email will never be sold to another company.
