About

Euclid Street Shop

Hello there. I'm Michelle, and welcome to Euclid Street Shop. I make greeting cards that hug you back.

THE PROCESS
Every card starts in my sketchbook. I doodle, I ponder life, I drink copious amounts of tea--whatever it takes to get ideas on the page. The best ones get scanned into my computer, edited, and if the design calls for it, digitally colored. At the very end, I print each card onto smooth white cardstock.

THE STORY
I first dreamed of starting this shop about a year ago, when I was working as a paralegal and trying to figure out what to do with my life (instead of going to law school). At the time, I was reading a ton of design blogs, admiring all these lovely creative people and their lovely creative lives, all the while thinking, "Sigh, why can't I do something creative with MY life?"

And there it was. Why can't I?

The epiphany hit me like a bolt of lightning, igniting a flurry of proactive and productive activity. I researched how to become a graphic designer. I bought supplies for my Etsy shop. I designed cards, I test printed them, and then...nothing. The most mundane things--work, self-doubt, lack of a scanner--intervened. And so I learned an important lesson: epiphanies don't always change your life.

But I also learned something else. That “empty” epiphany might keep hanging around in your subconsciousness. One day, if the time is right, it just might tap you on the shoulder again. Maybe you’ll turn around and realize there might have been something in it after all. And maybe, this time, you’ll be brave enough to pursue it.

That's how I decided to go back to school to study design. And that's how I finally opened this shop.

    I like things that are sad but a little funny, or funny but a little sad.

Hello there, and welcome to Euclid Street Shop!

My philosophy is that greeting cards are basically hugs in paper form. I love cards that are funny but a little sad, or sad but a little funny (as life often is). My cards--which start out as hand drawings--are simple and sometimes a little nonsensical, but they always come from the heart.

Shipping
Individual cards and accompanying envelopes are placed in sealed cello bags before shipment. Orders containing 10 or more cards are placed in clear greeting card boxes.

All orders are shipped via USPS First Class Mail within 1-3 business days of receipt of payment. Business days include Monday through Friday.

Shipping charges cover shipping, handling, and packaging materials.

USA CUSTOMERS:
Cards are shipped using rigid cardboard inserts or, depending on the size of the order, other sturdy packaging. Once shipped, a tracking number will be provided. Delivery is estimated at 3-10 business days after shipment, but please be aware that in rare cases, it may take up to 4 weeks.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS:
To keep international shipping costs low, cards are sent using flexible cardboard inserts and tracking numbers are not provided (unless otherwise indicated on the listing). However, if you would like your card sent using rigid inserts and/or you need a tracking number, convo me for shipping costs before placing your order. Delivery is estimated at 7-10 business days after shipment, but please be aware that in rare cases, it may take up to 8 weeks.

Please note that you are responsible for any applicable customs or other fees/charges upon receipt of your order.

If you have any further questions or other shipping requests, please feel free to convo me.
Refunds and Exchanges
For orders that have not yet been processed, I'd be happy to grant a full refund for whatever reason. However, if you paid via PayPal and are requesting the refund for a reason other than seller or USPS error, please note that you will be charged a $0.30 processing fee. If you paid via Etsy Direct Checkout, there will be no charge.

For orders that have already been processed, I can only offer full refunds (or replacements, if you prefer) for lost packages. Domestic orders are considered lost if they have not been received within 30 days of the original shipment date. International orders are considered lost if they have not been received within 60 days of the original shipment date.

If you provided an incorrect address and the package is returned to me, I can either provide a refund minus the shipping charge (and a $0.30 processing fee if you paid via PayPal), or resend it to the correct address at your expense.

Once I ship a package, it is (literally!) out of my hands. Unfortunately, that means I cannot guarantee delivery dates. I can do my best to offer you an accurate estimate, but this information is for your reference only. Please be aware that refunds are not provided for orders that do not arrive by estimated delivery dates, except for lost packages as indicated above.

For all other situations, please convo me at any time. If you're unhappy with your purchase, I'd like to make it right!
