These custom mugs are for a customer of mine who is a realtor - she's going to give these as closing gifts to her clients who become new home owners! I love it!
Here is a set of 12 custom notecards that are headed off to a customer of mine. Hopefully you'll be lucky enough to receive 'a note from Joy'.

About

Hand written notes & a cup of joe.

Personally, there are few things in this world that can make me more happy than receiving a greeting card from a loved one that contains a hand written note via good, old fashioned snail mail.

There's just something about it -- It's special and you know that the person who sent that card took the time out of their day to choose the perfect card, just for you, and to write the perfect combination of words inside that perfect card to express how they feel, just about you. Never fails to give me a case of the 'feels'.

One thing that comes close to making me as happy as a greeting card filled with love does -- a cute coffee mug. I am a total sucker for a great mug. I mean, I have a collection of them that is ex-ten-siiiiiive (borderline excessive, depends who you ask). There is just something wonderful about sipping a beverage out of an adorable mug. Fact: it makes things taste better. It's science. Read a book.

My whole life, I have loved to create cards for the people around me. Whether they be for birthdays or holidays, to say 'thank you' or 'get well soon', or to just simply express: 'It's Thursday and I think you're rad.' Creating something that will lift up another person or make them laugh gives me such great joy.

The designs that inspired the creation of this Etsy shop were first put down on paper in 2013. I was trying to come up with a theme for that year's valentines and some little dinos came flowing out of my pencil. (Fun Fact About Me: I'm obsessed with dinosaurs and frequently wonder why I didn't become a paleontologist.) I drew a set of characters and have been building on them and using them on handmade cards for my loved ones ever since. From there, I started to create more little designs and characters that I thought would be simple yet bold enough to stand alone on a blank card and that were fun and whimsical enough to be perfect for special occasions or just for any old day of the week.

I live my life with the mentality that we should take every excuse we have to celebrate and run with them. Life is too short to not tell people how you feel and people are too stressed to not soak up all the positivity and good vibes they can. Who cares if Valentine's Day isn't for another 6 months? Sending a card to express your love for someone is appropriate every single day of the year! And who cares if no one sends cards for Thanksgiving? It's actually my favorite holiday and I can't think of a single better day to give the friends and family I get to share that holiday with a little something extra.

All the designs used on From Meade To You's merchandise are original and made with love by me, Megan Meade. Each and every card is printed by me and all orders are put together and packaged by my hands in my house.

If you have any special requests, kind remarks, suggestions, constructive criticisms or just some honest-to-goodness not-so-nice things to say (you have the right to free speech, haters gonna hate, taters gonna potate) feel free to shoot me an email at: FromMeadeToYou [!at] gmail.com or use the 'Contact Shop Owner' button on the shop's homepage.
I'd love to hear from you.

Enjoy.

Returns and exchanges
I gladly accept returns and exchanges
Contact me within: 3 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 14 days of delivery
I don't accept cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
Returns and exchange details
**YOU MUST SEND PHOTO PROOFS OF ITEMS.** Before any type of action is taken in the request of a refund or exchange, I must be able to review photos of the items in question.

**SHIPPING INSURANCE MUST HAVE BEEN PURCHASED.** Before any type of action can be taken on an order that is lost or stolen or on an order containing damaged or broken items, I must see that you purchased shipping insurance. Orders without shipping insurance cannot be refunded or exchanged for a new shipment.

(Review 'Shipping Policy' section of From Meade To You's Policies Page to see when insurance is included and when insurance is available to be added to an order at checkout. Also, be sure to read the product description of the items your order to see what type of shipping comes standard with the product.)

Refunds and exchanges:
**Shipping insurance must be purchased on an order to file a claim with From Meade To You for a refund or exchange if the claim has to do with a lost, damaged or broken item upon arrival. If insurance was not purchased on an order a refund or exchange for a new shipment CANNOT be processed.**

The only time a refund or exchange will be issued to a buyer is if there is photo proof that the wrong item was sent out. This issue is entirely my fault and will be fixed by me.

If it is found that you mis-ordered a product on accident and want a different product instead, please contact me and we can work out the situation.
**PLEASE BE SURE TO DOUBLE CHECK AN ITEM'S DESCRIPTION BEFORE YOU PLACE YOUR ORDER.**

**A refund or exchange will not be issued in the event that you listed a negative review before contacting the shop and attempting to work out the issue.**

Damaged Goods:
**Shipping insurance must be purchased on an order to file a claim with From Meade To You for a refund or exchange if the claim has to do with a lost, damaged or broken item upon arrival. If insurance was not purchased on an order a refund or exchange for a new shipment CANNOT be processed.**

**You MUST hold onto damaged or broken goods until your claim has been completely handled. Disposing of the goods before the claim is handled will result in stopping the action and a denial of the refund or exchange.**

To receive a refund or exchange a file must be claimed with the insurance company the shipping insurance was purchased through. You, the buyer, will be sent a 'Buyer Affidavit' in an email to fill out and submit back to the insurance company. You MUST be willing to go through the process of claiming the lost, stolen, damaged or broken goods to the insurance company. If you are not willing to do so, a refund or exchange cannot be awarded. You purchased the package insurance for a reason -- this is how you use it.

Working with the mail system is always somewhat of a gamble and, unfortunately, there is always a chance that items can arrive broken or damaged. Being an independent business, I rely on third party carriers and thus, am not responsible for their mistakes.

Please keep in mind that I do my best to package items so that they stay safe and intact and that damages to packages are out of my control entirely as I am not a USPS employee.

In the event that your item is danged upon arrival and you had purchased shipping insurance at checkout, please send photos of the damaged goods and packaging to me and I will review the situation and work out a solution with you.
Payment
From Meade To You accepts payment from all major credit/debit cards, Paypal, and Etsy gift cards.

Orders will not be processed and shipped until they are paid for in full and proof of payment has been accepted.

If you want to cancel an order that you've placed and be refunded, you must do so WITHIN 24 HOURS of the time that the order was originally placed. Refunds can only be issued to the same valid credit/debit card that the order was placed with or back to Etsy gift cards. Refunds CANNOT be issued to orders made with a PayPal payment (I'm sorry in advance). To cancel an order, just send a message to the shop about wanting to cancel your order and you will receive a return message confirming or denying your order's cancellation.

I try to get orders packaged quickly for my customers (the 1-2 week processing time is an over estimation and is there in case of emergencies and disasters) and allowing order cancellations after 24 hours from the time they were originally placed would slow down that process.

If more than 24 hours have already passed from the time you placed your order, you can still send me a message by clicking on the 'Contact Shop Owner' button on the shop's homepage. If what you need is an adaptation to you order (ex. You ordered the wrong design/character on a card or mug) let me know in your message and I'll get back to you to let you know if there is still time to change what you need. It never hurts to ask! I can't always fix a mis-order on your part -- but it doesn't hurt to ask and I am willing to do what I can to get you the perfect items.
Shipping
All orders are shipped with the United States Postal Service.

All shipping rates are added to your order total at checkout and vary based on the contents of your order and if you choose any shipping upgrades.

**Shipping times for custom orders will vary and will be determined during the process of creating the custom order. SEE CUSTOM ORDERS POLICES SECTION for more information.**

All packages under 1 pound (ex. most small card orders) will have USPS First Class Mail shipping as their standard shipping option and the buyer will be charged the corresponding USPS First Class Mail shipping rate at checkout. These orders have delivery confirmation included in the price. Shipping time on Fist Class packages is 2-5 business days.The processing time of the package by From Meade To You is not figured into the 2-5 day First Class shipping. This means that your package will NOT arrive to you 2-5 days from the time of ORDER confirmation but will arrive to you 2-5 days from the time of SHIPPING confirmation.

All packages 1 pound and over (ex. order of single mug along with card(s), an order of a single or multiple mugs) will have USPS Priority Mail shipping as their standard option. These packages have insurance and delivery confirmation included in the price.Shipping time on Priority Mail packages is 1-3 business days.The processing time of the package by From Meade To You is not figured into the 1-3 day First Class shipping. This means that your package will NOT arrive to you 1-3 days from the time of ORDER confirmation but will arrive to you 1-3 days from the time of SHIPPING confirmation.

Buyers can upgrade shipping to USPS Priority Mail Express for 1-2 day shipping on all orders for an additional charge. The processing time of the package by From Meade To You is not figured into the 1-2 day Express shipping. This means that your package will NOT arrive to you 1-2 days from the time of ORDER confirmation but will arrive to you 1-2 days from the time of SHIPPING confirmation.(However, if you need rush processing along with your express shipping, leave a note with your order and the shop will do it's best to get you what you need when you need it by.) These packages have insurance and delivery confirmation included as well as signature confirmation.

Insurance can be purchased on orders that do not already include insurance in the shipping price for an additional fee at checkout if the buyer chooses to do so. From Meade To You encourages the purchase of insurance on all packages, no matter the value, just in case USPS loses, damages, or breaks your shipment.

**Insurance must be purchased on an order to file a claim with From Meade To You for a refund or exchange if the claim has to do with a lost, damaged or broken item upon arrival. If insurance was not purchased on an order a refund or exchange for a new shipment CANNOT be processed.**

I am willing to listen to any request that is sent to me - I also have the right to say no to any request that is sent to me.

**Since I do not print my own mugs and use an outside manufacturer to fill my orders, the timeline to when you will actually receive your completed custom mug will vary per order received. If you need your mug ASAP, it is very important that you make that known and if you are unwilling to wait the time necessary for your design to be created then your custom order will not be able to be processed.**

Getting a custom design created for you DOES NOT MEAN that own the rights to the artwork. Any physical products that you purchase (cards, mugs, etc.) you do own outright upon payment but you CANNOT reproduce any of the items.

All custom artwork may be re-used by From Meade To You in future designs for public sale. If any design elements that were created just for you are going to be used in another design, you will be informed and those elements will be altered to some extent to keep your custom order unique and just for you.

To have a custom order worked up:

- Send me a 'Custom Order Request'
- I will read over the request and respond to you with a yes or no as to if I am willing to create what you had in mind.
- We will message back forth as long as necessary until I have a good grasp on the image you are requesting me to create.
- At this point, to move forward, a design fee of $45 will need to be paid (my time is valuable and I am using hours of my time to build you the perfect design.)
**IF the custom design you want is more simple - like, you just want to add balloons to an already existing dino design's hand or change the color of a hat, add some words...etc. then the design fee is lower and can be negotiated and discussed after the custom order request has been placed.**
- After the design fee is received, I will begin to create your design and will send you photos of the design at each step. If changes need to be made, you may voice your requests and edits will be made and new photos will be sent on to you to be approved.
- When the design has been edited to your liking and you have given me final approval, a timeline will be given as to when your custom cards or mugs can be printed and then sent off to you.
- At this point, a custom order listing will be created for you to pay for according to the number of cards or mugs that you want.
- Once this custom order has been paid for, your cards or mugs or shirts will begin the printing process according to the timeline that was agreed upon prior to payment and when they are completed an email will be sent to you confirming shipment.
