Announcement   Hello! Welcome to I Do Bliss! Where creativity with paper prevails!
Please read the following prior to your order about my fabulous shop:

Your Vision = My Vision
I personally create your one of a kind invitation or paper items! Since I am such a small shop, I am only able to take a limited quantity of orders. I am very quick in my communication and responses and strive to create a one of a kind invitation for you and your special day or event. My clients have raved about my premium quality and attention to detail of my products… they are stunning and they show in my reviews!

I can create something especially customized for you, or you can simply order what you see in my shop. Since many of my designs are created with somewhat “off the beaten path” materials, there may be times where a substitution will be needed. The majority of my items are created with Envelopments, Inc. products, which are truly the top of the line in quality, availability, and durability. My items are simply a “get what you pay for” product, as they are created with the utmost quality papers, ribbons, and especially eye for detail and precision. I also strive to create affordability with my designs. Any of my paper items or invitations can be modified to suit your budget, so just ask!

**************************************************************************
Timing
I typically require 30 days to complete an order, and this begins after the final proof is approved, which lends to about 45 days. I say typically, as there are times during the off peak of wedding season where I can complete orders faster, but this needs to be established prior to ordering any items. The earlier you communicate with me, the earlier I can lock a date of completion with you!
Rush orders are possible, please inquire about them via convos.

Process
Like my products? Well you can head in two directions:

1. {Purchase of sample} if you see a sample that you would like, but are not exactly ready to place an order in full, purchase a sample anytime, as all my listings are set up for the purchase of one sample. I change out names and date as a courtesy for samples, but the color combinations and design are as shown unless requested/discussed previously thru a conversation. Even then, I am limited to what I have available in stock. Sample may take up to a week to complete, due to volume of orders and availability of products. Substitutions in some colors may be necessary due to limited materials in stock.

2. {Custom Design} if you are ready to move forward with an order, then you will be required to purchase a $50 ‘Design & Sample Fee’.
http://www.etsy.com/listing/172443378/customer-design-customization-sample-fee?ref=shop_home_active_1
This starts the customization process and allows development of your custom, handmade invitations. The fee is inclusive of the complete custom design of your invitation and goes toward the set up, design, and customization of your invitation. It is applied to the time dedicated to creating your invitation and purchasing/researching materials needed.
After purchase, up to THREE PROOFS^ are developed and approved. Once there is a final proof approved, there are two options:

a. a sample of your custom invitation is mailed upon agreement of the worked up proof and design. If more than one sample/layout is requested or especially exclusive invitation samples are requested, the fee is subject to an increase in price depending on the complexity of design and cost of materials.

b. an electronic photo-proof (photographed sample) is emailed for your approval. Up to $15 of this fee may be credited/applied to the final cost of your invitation contract order.

General Information
• Minimum of 10 units are required for wedding invitations. Other products are more variable, so please inquire.
• Re-ordering invitations are possible, with a minimum of 5, and must be ordered in quantity of 5 increments. Re-ordered invitations are subjected to a 15% reorder fee.
• ^The Design & Sample fee includes up to 3 electronic proofs; after 3 proofs, each additional proof is $15 each.*
• Branding: each invitation has a tasteful “I Do Bliss” label on the back. It is a small 0.3 x 1.4 inch glossy label that will coordinate with your invitation colors. Adding this label to my products allows me to get the word out about my small handmade shop and promote my business while allowing my costs to remain affordable for my future clients. Please inquire if this may be something you wish to remove.

Shipping
I ship with UPS or USPS. I insure all orders over $100 for both your sanity and mine. USPS will only be used with small orders, and where the worth is under $100. If you prefer USPS shipping, please inform me upon ordering. In general, you will notice that the shipping cost may be higher than anticipated. This is because all shipping costs are just an estimate. It is hard for me to tell at the start of your order how heavy the box will be, what size box everything will fit in, and how much protection I will need to add. It is also easier for me to simply credit you back the difference, instead of creating a new Etsy listing for the extra charges.

I CAN'T say enough about how great these invites are! This is the second time have had Lauren create invites for me and she never disappoints! She made my Vegas wedding Invites for me about a year and a half ago, THEY WERE INCREDIBLE!!!!!!! Her attention to detail is wonderful and communication was easy ( I tend to ask a lot of questions) Anyway, I am thrilled with my invites !

Laura, thank you. The whole process was very professional, helpful and fast. From finalization of the invitation material to delivery on my doorstep was less than 20 days. The invitations are beautifully crafted and the added touches of the postage stamps, the matching ribbon to enclose the boxes for the invitations and the transparent paper accents are what set you apart. I appreciate your help in making my day that much more memorable.

All my guests loved the invitations. They are just gorgeous - a real keepsake. Laura is a pleasure and a joy to work with - and her work is absolutely exquisite. I wish everyone I have to work with for my wedding was the quality she is. Communication is excellent, creativity is fantastic, results are perfection. Five stars all around. THANK YOU so much!

You dream it, I create it.
My passion for art is expressed with each set of hand assembled invitations using the finest papers, ribbons & exquisite materials.I have always been an artistic person & found that my outlet to express creativity is by designing invites for people. I love being inventive and have always had an eye for beauty, art, and style. After creating my own wedding invitations in 2003, I found how rewarding it was to create a personal beautiful invite that captured my special event. I then realized I wanted to share this special talent with others, helping create that exact thrill and excitement for their events ensuring a truly personal experience.

My invitations are unique and custom. You can directly order any of the invitations & samples on my online gallery or in my shop, or you can set up an appointment to customize an invitation or design something totally brand new!

Many of the invitations in my shop are samples. If you want to order a sample to see the materials, craftsmanship, and quality.... purchasing a sample would be your best bet!
If you actually see something you love and would prefer to NOT order a sample, then please convo me so that we can set up the process of customization and begin design on your handcrafted invitations!

Payment
I currently accept paypal, personal checks, and money orders. Once invitations are selected, the total cost is necessary to begin your order and lock in a delivery date.

Since I Do Bliss is a small boutique, only so many orders can be confirmed per month.
Shipping
I do my best to estimate shipping on most of my products. Although I do tend to over estimate, which in turn I will give you a partial refund or credit.

Since each item is hand assembled, depending on the item and complexity, a minimum of 48 hours is required once your order is received. Some invitations that require a bit more hand detail may require up to 30 days or more for delivery.

If time is of the essence, please let me know up front so that we communicate your time-line efficiently! When shipping to out of state customers, I Do Bliss ensures that timely and insured delivery is provided; thus shipping & handling charges reflect this and are paid by the customer. Orders will not be shipped until receipt of the final payment and shipping costs. In case the order shipment is lost in travel, I Do Bliss will guarantee a replacement shipment within 30 days of the original promise date only if the package is insured. If the customer chooses not to insure their order, I Do Bliss is not responsible for shipment of the invitations and will not replace them in case of a lost package/shipment. I Do Bliss is not responsible for delays in events due to the loss of a shipped order or any costs that may arise due to a delay in receiving your product/invitations. I Do Bliss is also not responsible for any injuries due to packaging, product, or items shipped.
Refunds and Exchanges
Refunds are not provided. Due to the products being hand made customized products, refunds are not available. I Do Bliss takes the utmost care in delivering a quality product. A final proof is to be electronically verified prior to the start of any order. Once a final proof is officially approved, any modification of the proofed invitation or any change that would modify the quantity of required materials, size, quantity, layout, wording, paper quality modification, design style, ribbon upgrade or downgrade, etc. may incur further costs and/or time delay of the order. I Do Bliss is not responsible for errors to the final proof or typographical errors. It is up to the customer to perform a full review of the information on her/his final invitation proof. Each invitation or item printed by I Do Bliss is a unique, handmade product. All invitations are hand-made, hand-cut, and are original designs, and that slight variations, irregularities and/or imperfections may occur naturally. I Do Bliss does ensure a quality product of the utmost attention and detail, and satisfaction is guaranteed.
Additional policies and FAQs
What quality paper items do you use?
I primarily use Envelopments, as well as other items from LCI Paper, Kelly Paper, and others.

How much lead time for Wedding invitations do you need? When is a good time to contact you?
I need a minimum of 30-60 days out from when you need them delivered to you. I only am able to take so many customers per month, so the earlier, the better!

Do you offer a catalog of products or custom products?
I do not have a catalog at this time, but all my invitations are custom products and available on my galleries at www.idobliss.com.

Do you handle design, printing, and assembly?
Yes. Assembly, Design, Printing

What specialty products do you provide?
Embossing, thermography, Recycled Paper, Seeded paper, Hand dyed silk ribbons

If I see an invitation on your gallery, can I change the colors and fonts?
Yes! All of my designs are custom... so I tailor it to your colors, style, and overall preferences. As long as the paper is available in your colors, anything is possible.

Do you provide samples?
Yes. You can purchase a sample of any invitation within my online galleries.

I have a specific budget, how is that taken into consideration?
Each invitation has a starting price. We can work to limit the extras and keep it simple, or select a design that fits more into your budget.

Do you ship internationally?
Yes. I have shipped to Australia, Japan, Carribean and the UK. I have found that shipping can be quite pricey due to the weight of the invitations, as well as customs charges.

When should I mail out my wedding invitations? What about Save the Dates?
The majority of wedding invitations need to be sent out from 8-10 weeks in advance. Save the Dates should be mailed out 6-10 months out prior to your wedding.
