The only thing that I can say without writing a book. Is AMAZING!!!!!! from beginning to end Danielle's customer service is top notch. The end result is 100% perfection, and the quality is the best I've seen. As an event planner I see lots of people trying to do this, but she definitely wrote the book. If I could've given her 10 stars I would have.

About

IlLUMIEnating one event at a time

The idea for illuminate was born a few years ago while sitting in a café in Budapest Hungary. A little candle on the table was wrapped in paper and I loved the way the light danced through it. I’ve taken the idea and expanded it to create a whole array of votives, table numbers and center pieces. I create them large or small, subtle or brash, elegant or whimsical.
Anything is possible with your lumie, let me know what you’d like to have at your celebration and I will work with you to see it created.
I love creating almost anything. Creativity runs in my family. My grandfather is an experienced carpenter. My mother has done many things like tole painting, glass work, sewing, and jewelry My father is a jack-of-all trades. He’s builds cabinets and repairs computers…you name it, he can do it. My brothers are also great artists; they both can draw anything.

I love to create and develop new ideas. I especially like to make paper creations. In addition to all the things you see here on Illumienate, I also make lots of cards for all seasons.

Illumienate is my full time job.
I am married and live in eastern Massachusetts with my husband.

Additional policies and FAQs
Q-WHAT IS DIY?

A-Do-it-yourself. I'll mail you the printed designed flat lumies and you can assemble them. They already have an adhesive strip applied to one end. Just peel, stick, and walah! Lumies!


Q-WHAT IS A VOTIVE WRAP?

A- It is the piece of vellum transparent paper that has your guest's name, your monogram printed or your design on it that is cut-out to fit a straight-sided votive. This is the DIY version. You'll need to assemble these with your glass holders and candles and ribbon. Most standard votives are about 3" tall and about 2" in diameter. If you are uncertain about your votive, I can send you template to print and cut out to see if it will fit. Ask me and I can recommend a cheap option for the glass votives.

Q-HOW LONG BEFORE I GET THEM?

A-Once you have purchase, it usually takes about 3-5 weeks** before your order is shipped. If you need them sooner or need to rush them, there is a rush fee. Expedited shipping is also an option.
**Check my shop announcements for current production time. It's likely much less.


Q-HOW DO I CHOOSE FONTS and or COLORS?

A-You can choose a font from my most popular fonts here:

http://www.illumienate.com/faq/fonts-and-colors

If you have been using another font not listed there, let me know and I may have it.


Q-I'M NEW TO ETSY, HOW DO I GO ABOUT ORDERING?

A-Contact me--Find the link at the bottom of a listing (an item for sale in my shop) and click "contact seller", let me know what you'd like, and I can make it happen in regards to lumies and votives and seating charts.


Q-I WANTED TO ORDER 6 LUMINARIES AND IT'S SAYING THERE IS ONLY 1 AVAILABLE. IS THIS TRUE?

A-Yes and no. Let me know you how many you want and I'll change the listing. I'll make a link for you to follow and you can purchase them.

Q- THESE ARE AWESOME! WHAT ELSE CAN I USE THESE FOR?

A- Thank you for the compliment! I've had brides and other clients add:
their monogram,
photos,
menus,
poems,
quotes,
designs from their invites.

They've used them as:
bathroom counter decor,
aisle runners,
dance floor borders,
outdoor path guides,
memorials to loved ones,
on the guest book table,
on the cake table,
on the gift table,
on the sweets/candy bar table...

Other clients have used these for:
birthdays,
anniversaries,
christenings,
memorials,
corporate events,
and balls.

Q-I'M NOT PLANNING TO DO TABLE "NUMBERS" BUT RATHER USE NAMES. CAN I DO THAT?

A-Yes. You can use poems or menus too!


Q-IS IT POSSIBLE TO DO THE NUMBERS (TEXT) IN A BROWN OR RED COLOR?

A-Yes, or nearly any color. If you'd like something metallic, that's a little more tricky and not really possible if you want shiny, glimmery.


Q-DO YOU SEND A PREVIEW/PROOF OF THE LUMIES?

A-Yes, if you've customized the lumies or votives, I'll email you a proof before printing or shipping. There may be extra fees if changes are needed after the proof approval.


Q-I WONDERED HOW THESE MIGHT LOOK WITH FLAMELESS LED CANDLES?

A-They still look great.


Q-THE DIY LISTING IS ONLY NUMBERED 1-12. CAN YOU DO NUMBERS 1-20?

A-Yep! Just contact me and let me know. I'll change a listing for you and send you the link to purchase.


Q-CAN I BUY A SAMPLE?

A-Yes, purchase a sample pack from my shop. If you don't see that it's there, let me know and I'll set one up for you.


Q-DO YOU DO ANYTHING OTHER THAN PLACE CARD OR TABLE NUMBER VOTIVES? I WAS INTERESTED IN MAYBE MONOGRAMED CANDLES WITH OUR DATE?

A-Absolutely! I'll put nearly anything on the votives or lumies for you.


Q-I'M INTERESTED IN THE DIY LUMIE KIT WITH TABLES 1-12. AM I ABLE TO CHANGE THE FONT TO A NAVY COLOR AND ADD RIBBON?

A-Yes, but your lumies will be customized and cost a little extra, see pricing above.
