About

tantrums, tiaras and sticky tape

I have been creating wedding stationery for over 15 years. As an artist and designer I was always being asked to put together invitations, starting with a handful of friends the requests quickly grew. 'i do' it yourself began as a concept back in London in 2006, but with lots of globe trotting on the cards how was I going to help people with their wedding stationery? One day a little light bulb came on - why not just email them the digital files to print?

I was engaged for don't ask how long! And when I started to plan my wedding I found it quite surprising that there were not more resources out there to 'do it yourself'. So I decided to start creating my DIY printable stationery.

Now back in Australia, the idea of emailing out the files for wedding stationery means I am able to make my designs easily available all over the world - which is a pretty nice thought really.

Whether you're looking to express your creative streak on your big day, or just keen to walk down the aisle with a bit more cash left in your pocket, you'll find 'i do' it yourself packed with inspiring ideas. From invitations to table decorations and everything in between.

HOW TO ORDER
1. Purchase the file and leave any custom wording instructions, colours and sizes if required, in the NOTES TO SELLER on checkout or email us at info(at)idoityourself.com.au
2. If your item required customising we create your personalised design and send you back a proof for you to check.
3. Once you're completely happy with the proof, and we have your sign off we email you the high resolution file for you to print, decorate and send. Easy!

Not sure if your home printer is up to the task but like our designs, don't worry, we can supply files set up for professional printers instead. Just forward the file onto your local print shop or online printer.

Turn around time: 24-72hrs (closed weekends and public holidays)

All files remain the copyright of i do it yourself and are for your personal use only. No part of these may be altered in any way without the express written permission of i do it yourself. Files may not be reproduced, resold or duplicated for any commercial purpose. Colours may vary slightly depending on your monitor, printer and paper but all efforts are made to give an accurate view.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Due to the large number of enquiries and orders we receive each day we are unable to create proofs and mock ups without purchase.

Payment must be received within 24hrs or the sale will be cancelled. If you need more time to work out wording, please pay for the item and send a message to let us know you're thinking about your wording :)
Shipping
Shipping is FREE - because there isn't any!
Please remember we do not supply a finished printed product in the post, you will recieve a digital file emailed to the email address registered with etsy for you to print at home or take to your local professional printer. If you have not heard from us in a reasonable time please check your email address details are correct and up to date and make sure our message has not gone to spam.
Refunds and Exchanges
****************************
We are so thrilled that you are considering using 'i do' it yourself for your wedding stationery. We know what a big decision it is, and it's wonderful that we can play a small part in such a special day for you. Please read the following information, it is designed to protect you as the consumer and me as a designer and small business owner.
****************************

'i do' it yourself only sells digital files that you will need to print. Once files have been sent they obviously cant be returned and no refunds can be given if you didn't realise it was a digital file. Please read the full listing before making a purchase, we try to keep them as short and informative as possible. If anything is unclear or you have any questions just contact us. The FAQ section below usually answers most peoples questions or they are just on the listing, so check there first.

FILES WILL BE SENT BY EMAIL to the address you have registered with etsy unless otherwise specified in your order.

WHERE IS MY ORDER? Every purchase is dealt with in the order it comes in but we are very quick and can often get back to you within 24hrs. Our current turn around time is displayed in the main page shop announcement. Seating charts, maps and custom orders will take longer. Please remember we are in Australia so there may be a time difference and we do not work on the weekend.
It is the customers responsibility to ensure the email address you have provided is correct, up to date and to monitor your spam. Once a file has been sent we will also mark the item as shipped so you will be receiving two notifications from different sources. This is our full time job, so we will never be too busy to complete your order or be ignoring you - if you can't find an email from us within three working days (so not counting weekends) it has most likely just gone to spam. If you cant see it in your spam folder it may be set up to empty quite quickly so check your settings. Please contact us as soon as possible and we can resend the file, can step you through how to check your spam or try a different email address if you prefer.

REFUNDS Due to the nature of digital files, refunds are not given once a file has been sent or downloaded. Please remember you are purchasing a design service and placing an order is an instruction for us to begin work. Even though you are not receiving a physical product in the post from us we spend a lot of time, money and effort into putting your order together. If you decide not to use our design either due to cancelation of your event, selection of a different design or simply changing your mind, this is not grounds for a refund.

Again - we do not give refunds once a file has been sent because you didn't realised you were ordering a digital file, forgot to monitor your email or where hoping for a faster turn around time.

CANCELLING If you need to cancel your order. please contact us asap, if no work has been started on your design we will happily refund your order. If work has been started and no files sent yet we can do a partial refund.

PROOFING Most items come with a proof first it will say on the listing. Please ensure that you check the proof carefully for errors and omissions and show it to anyone who will want to have some input. We will cut and paste in the text in that you supply to cut down on typos. We do not spell check.
Once a design has been approved by you and the final files sent it will be moved to an offsite backup, with 1000s of orders we unfortunately can't keep them all here. An additional charge of $10 is payable to retrieve the file and make alterations AFTER you have approved the design, so check it carefully and make sure you show the proof to everyone who needs to see it or will want to have a say. If the error is from our end we will make the changes for free.

SIZES Most items require a size to be selected when ordering. Changing to a different size once the file has already been designed will often require a redesign and there is a charge of $5-$15 depending on the complexity of the redesign. Please ensure you have ordered the correct size that will suit your printing plans and any envelopes. If you are unsure get in touch and we can offer suggestions.

NEED MORE TIME? Please ensure you have your wedding date and venue booked before ordering. If you need extra time to work out your wording, just let us know, we are happy to wait but due to the large number of orders we receive each day we will not be able to keep chasing you up for the info.

************FAQS************

**What do you mean by printable DIY?
All of our stationery is supplied as computer files for you to print yourself at home or take to your local professional printer. We don't supply a finished printed product. We do the tricky design part, add in your supplied text etc. This can save you quite a bit of money, there are no postage fees involved, you have more flexibility and most importantly you can have more fun doing it yourself, printing it out, picking the paper and decorating!

**How long will it take?
It usually takes under a week for the whole process. You will hear from us within 24-72hrs once an order is placed. If you wish to make changes to the proof, each change may take another 24-48hrs to process. (minus weekends)
Totally custom jobs, maps and seating charts can take longer depending on the complexity of the design requested, but we will try to get you your first proof in a week. Please ensure you have your wedding date and venue booked before ordering.

**My home printer isn't very good, what can I do?
Don't worry we can supply files for you to take to your local professional printer or print shop instead. We can help you with what questions to ask if you are unsure. Just let us know that's what you want to do when you order as it does change the way we supply the final file.

**What format are files sent in?
All files are sent as PDFs. JPGs are available on request for custom orders. Files for home printing are sent as multiples on a standard sheet of A4 or letter sized paper, depending on where you live. If you have precut paper please let us know as you order. Professional files are sent as a single file with bleed and crop marks. Genereally copy shops will take the professional file set up, but it can depend on ther equipment and even the person that serves you on the day. If you need multiple designs to a standard sheet just let us know as soon as you can.
Photo labs are also an options for printing items like photo save the dates, these are sent in JPG format.
We can also supply files for emailing. Each additional file format is $5.

**What paper should I use?
We recommend using a quality thick paperstock for wedding stationery, white or off white, not coloured. A very minimum of 200 gsm (110lbs). Around 300gsm is great, heavy cardstock.
If you're printing at home check your printers manual first for the maximum paper thickness it can take. Don't forget there are a huge range of paper finishes available from gloss to recycled, shimmer effects and textured feels. If you need a suggestion to suite a design just ask.

**How do I change the text?
On custom orders we do that for you! As you place your order leave your wording in the notes to seller box. I'm afraid due to copyright concerns we do not sell individual graphics, original working files or unpersonalised, blank files except in the case of gift tags and place cards. If you would like an instant download customising please contact us for a quote.

**Can I use a design for something different like a baby shower or birthday?
Absolutely, don't feel restricted. The text we show is just an example, if you see a design you like it can be adapted to shower invitations, anniversary parties, birthdays and more. Just supply your wording.

**Can I change the colour or font?
Alternative colour options are available for almost all of our designs. The colour options will be pictured on the listing, please choose from our options as just saying green or red can be very subjective and will delay your order.
Fonts can be changed at an additional cost of $5 per file (with the exception of instant downloads) https://www.etsy.com/listing/54175195/font-change
If you still don't see quite what you're looking for we can customise most of our designs to fit your needs, don't be shy, just ask. This can start from as little as $5.

**Can I get a printed sample?
As each person prints out their own stationery using different printers and different paper, we don't supply printed samples. You can check out or Facebook page for photos of finished items https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.397251790236.365575.210470965236&type=3 or pinterest https://www.pinterest.com/idoityourself/customer-pics/
https://www.pinterest.com/idoityourself/fingerprint-guest-book-trees-and-more/

**Can I supply text in a different language?
As long as it doesn't require special fonts it should be ok. Make sure your instructions are very clear, as we probably wont know where to start a new line or if something should be capitalised for example. So far we have designed in Spanish, French, German, Hebrew and even Chinese. Some language changes will incur an additional fee so please check with us first.

**What size is it?
Sizes are shown on each listing. Most of our designs can also be customised to fit your size requirements, there may be small a resize fee so check first.
You must chose your size before we begin designing, any resizing after the first proof has been sent will incur a resize fee.
Most of our stationery files fit onto standard A4 or letter sheets of paper for easy printing. If you are printing at home we will fit as many designs as we can onto one sheet to save you money and paper. Professional print files will just be the one design with bleed and crop marks.

Standard sizes are:
Invitations - 5x7" for north america and rest of world. A5, 210x148mm or 5x7" for rest of world
Save the dates - 6x4" or 5.5x4.25" for north america and rest of world. A6, 148x105mm or 6x4" for rest of world.
If sizes are not supplied on ordering and our request for your sizes is not answered, they will be sent as above.

**I can't open the proof you sent.
We send files as PDFs which you will need to view in Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat Professional (you can download Reader for free if you don't already have it.) You will need to view files on a computer and not a phone or tablet. We recommend for a more accurate view you open the file in full in acrobat rather than looking at it within the email system.
