Announcement    COVID-19 Updates:
I am working on adding change the date designs but any of my existing samples can also be changed to be for a changed / rescheduled event.

Past Customer Orders: I realize that many of my past customers are currently canceling and rescheduling their events - I'm here to help you with edits and reprints, just send me a message about what's going on with your particular situation and we'll figure out how to proceed.

Current Customers: My husband is in the high risk for complications group, so my house is on lock down and we are self-isolating until further notice. I'm doing everything I can to keep us healthy and will update you immediately if I'm at all concerned about our situation or what's going on in Tucson. Otherwise I intend to proceed as normal with your order unless you tell me something different.

Browsing Customers: I know we're all trying to figure out when we'll be allowed to return to normal. I'll be posting new listings, working through ideas I haven't had time to get to and generally keeping myself busy. Feel free to send me questions and I always offer design deposits, all you have to do is ask! That way we can get your custom design done while we're all hanging out together at home but hold off on printing until you're sure it's a go.

Video summary: Check out my own baseball wedding that started this whole shop!

How I got started selling sports themed wedding invitations...

My husband and I were married at our local ballpark. It was amazingly fun but there were also a lot of DIY projects I tackled in order to make it all come together. After searching for and not finding invitations as unique as we were we ended up creating all of our wedding's stationary ourselves. From the save the dates to the invitations and thank you cards we created a beautiful one of a kind set of stationary that really highlighted who we were and what our wedding was all about. And we received SO many compliments and comments on how impressive it all was that I wanted to allow other brides to feel that proud of their own invitations. My mom passed on her love of paper to me and my dad his creativity so between the two of them I desire nothing more than to create something as unique and beautiful as you and your wedding.
When I'm not creating invitations I also tend to just start making things out of paper, which is why there will be a variety of other things available in my store, made with just as much love, just not for any specific purpose.

    My husband and I were married at our local ballpark and I loved every minute of it. I have been bursting with creative energy my whole life and I'm excited to put it to work for other couples and their beautiful sports themed weddings.

But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Returns and exchange details
Due to the personalized nature of my items I am unable to accept returns or exchanges of orders and is why I ask for your approval of proofs before I proceed with any printing. Also, due to the time and effort that goes into a first set of proofs, once they are sent, all cancellations are subject to a minimum charge of the DIY Template fee. If items were damaged during shipping, please contact me so that I can file an insurance claim and start reprinting your order. If the item appears to be lost in transit, please contact me as soon as you notice this. I will start an insurance claim and begin reprinting your order once the claim is approved. If an item is lost in transit or USPS does not approve the claim, I may wait at least 14 days from shipment date to reprint your order, just to make sure it hasn't been returned to me for an incorrect address.
Payment
Weddings are expensive, I understand. All orders have the option of being broken up into to payments of a design deposit and a balance listing. If you'd like this option, please send me a message letting me know so that I can get these setup for you.
Shipping
Within the US I ship proofs via USPS First Class mail and full orders via Priority Mail by default, you have the option of upgrading to Express Mail at checkout.
Additional policies and FAQs
How long before my event should I order my invites?
* It’s recommended that you send out save the dates 5 to 12 months before your event. Invitations should go out 8 weeks before an event. For items that will be given out at your event (place cards, programs, favors, etc.) I recommend ordering 6 weeks before the big day.

Can I order part of an invitation suite without ordering the full set? What if I like parts of one invitation and pieces of another?
* You can order any or all of the items that I offer. I custom design everything so I can change any part of the invitation to fit your needs, just let me know by requesting a custom order.

Do you require a deposit?
* Due to the amount of requests I receive, I am unable to send any personalized proofs before you order. In Instances where you don’t know your final count yet or your event is a ways away, I’ll setup a design deposit listing for you (which will be the same as the Digital Template price). Then we’ll get the base design done and I’ll send you a physical set of proofs, if desired. Once you have your final count, I’ll set up a listing to cover the balance. The remaining balance will be due before I add your guest’s names to the place cards or begin printing your full order.

How does the whole process work?
* My standard process is to start with an Etsy convo or an emailed questionnaire wherein we cover all of your event's information and you send me any photos you'd like to use. Then I will email you a digital proof within a few days. I will then revise it based on your feedback, as many times as needed, until you are absolutely satisfied. If you've chosen the DIY template option, I will send you the PDF print template for you to begin printing your invitations. If you've chosen printed invitations, I will send you one as a physical proof (time permitting) so that you can make sure everything looks perfect. Upon approval of the physical proof or final digital proof I will print your full order and mail them to you insured via Priority Mail in the U.S. or First Class International for international orders and you'll be all set!

After I receive the physical proof can I still make changes?
* You can make changes to your design until I’ve received your approval to begin printing your final order. Changes after that will be charged accordingly.

Shipping:
* Within the US, I ship proofs via USPS First Class Mail and final products via USPS Priority Mail with tracking and insurance. Outside of the US, I ship via First Class International or Priority Mail International depending on your selection at checkout.
* I recycle & reuse mailing materials whenever and wherever possible.
* International Customers: I will refund any shipping overages if there are any. Your package may be subject to duties or taxes that you will be responsible for paying. Please investigate your country’s policies before purchasing. I can also upgrade your order to International Registered Mail at additional cost.

What items do you make?

As a Sports Bride, I specialize in everything sports themed (save the dates, invitations, place cards, programs, table signs, thank you cards, etc.) for any event, wedding, baby and bridal showers, birthday parties, bar or bat mitzvahs, corporate/business events, holiday cards, pregnancy/birth announcements and graduation invitations. Any design can be changed to be for a different event/theme. I can also do more traditional stationary. And if you don't see what you're looking for, just click on the “Request a Custom Order” underneath the photos! Every sample in my shop is a custom design I have made for someone else. I look forward to helping you make your event’s stationary everything you imagine it to be!

What are your current turn around times?

I currently have a toddler and am always working around her schedule, so at the moment my order completion times are around 2-4 weeks (from the time I receive all of your event’s information and photos to having them in your hands). If you need your order ASAP, be sure to either select the "Rush My Order" Shipping upgrade at checkout, or add it on after the fact by purchasing it here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/544829768/
I always take care of open orders before general questions, so if you want to get things started right away, be sure to place your order.

Rush Orders!

You can rush your order by choosing the “Rush My Order! Move me to the front of the line” Shipping Upgrade option at checkout. You will be moved ahead of all of my other open orders and I will respond to your messages, get to work on your proofs and print your order first.

Can I leave Feedback?

YES! I love getting positive feedback, and I really love seeing your pictures of everything all set up! You can leave feedback either through the email Etsy will send after your order is delivered, or by going to your Etsy receipts. I’m more than happy to help you find them.

Can I get a different quantity of invitations, just RSVPs, purple colored envelopes, etc.?

The answer to all of the above is YES! I have designed everything you see in my shop from scratch, all you have to do is ask and I'll let you know how I can make you what you'd like.
