point_up_2point_up_2point_up_2Heads up! Get your holiday card orders in early this year with the coupon code 15EARLYXMAS! My Christmas season is going to be particularly short this year because of travel so I'd recommend getting a jump on it.
One of my favorite family portraits from last year! Love working with so many different kinds of families.

Returns and exchange details
Custom invites and illustrations are nonrefundable - I don't accept returns or exchanges once work is complete.

Invitations/Save the Dates/Holiday Cards: Before you receive print ready files you will receive a digital proof. Upon receiving the digital proof, please make sure wording, address, spelling, dates, or any other text errors or color preference are to your satisfaction. I make any corrections I see, but you are ultimately responsible for approving the final proof.
 I will make a reasonable amount of edits but may ask for an additional editing fee if your requests exceed what I usually allow.

Colors vary from monitor to monitor, so it is impossible to guarantee the exact color you see on your screen. When printed, exact colors and cut of the card are in the hands of the printer.
Shipping
All international orders and domestic guestbooks/items larger than 8.5x11 ship safely rolled in a tube to avoid damage. 8.5x11 prints ship flat domestically.

I ship all orders USPS First Class for domestic and international orders. Arrival time varies on location.

USPS First Class domestic orders generally take 2-5 business days to arrive, once shipped.

Shipping times on international orders cannot be guaranteed due to possible customs delays. If you are concerned about international arrival times for custom items, I recommend printing locally and just receiving a digital file.

Import taxes, customs duties, and/or fees imposed by the destination country are the buyers responsibility. I am unable to predict these fees.
Additional policies and FAQs
I work on a first come, first serve basis and operate with a revolving waitlist. I try to accommodate wedding orders with quickly arriving need by dates - please contact me to discuss if you feel your wedding date is sooner than I can accommodate.

While I allow edits, they are a gift to you - not a privilege. Please be respectful of my time and understand that I have other projects I'm moving forward.

For holiday card and all custom orders please be patient in receiving digital files. The listed turnaround time is almost always correct.

I try to respond as quickly as possible to emails, etsy messages and edit requests - please exercise patience.

-----

Custom family portraits are a representation of your family. While the nature of my style is to create the likeness of your family based on the photos provided, it is not realism.

All prints are shipped unframed. The frames shown in the image are only shown for visual purposes.

Frequently asked questions
What edits are allowed for custom cards and illustrations?

I allow slight changes to appearances (ex:skin color, beard trim, hair color, dress color, text changes, change of bow tie to tie etc.) and text. I try to be generous with allowed edits but if your order requires a great deal of additional edits, I may request an additional editing fee.

To reduce the amount of edits to invitations/save the dates - please finalize your text before you send it to me and take your time when describing the way you would like to be drawn. Please try and provide forward facing photos taken in natural light.

Please be thoughtful when reviewing your image and try to think of specific changes you feel would help increase resemblence. 'Do it again' is not helpful.

Can you print my invitations/holiday cards for me?

At the moment, I am only able to provide digital files and printing instructions - not printed cards.

Where should I send my photos and information after I place my purchase for a custom order?

When you can, please send your photos (as attachments or a zipped folder) to kathrynselbert@gmail.com. Please do not send them via etsy conversations as you can only send three photos at a time. Your text and other information you'd like me to have should be in the body of the email. The email you use will be the one I send your proofs to.

How do you send proofs?

Proofs are sent as attachments to the email address associated with your etsy account. PLEASE make sure this is accurate before placing an order or provide me with your preferred email address. I do not chase customers to review proofs.

What is your current turn around for custom items?

The current turnaround for all items is 2-3 weeks for the first proof. Please factor in 1-4 days per revision round before you either receive a final file or your image is sent to the printer.

Turn around times are estimated and not exact. I would let me know when placing your order if you have a specific need by date.

RUSH OPTIONS
If you need a proof sooner than 2-3 weeks, also add the 'rush order' listing to your cart before checking out to speed up receipt of your proof to 1-3 days: https://www.etsy.com/listing/510427561/rush-order?ref=shop_home_active_2

How do you make the people look like us? (guestbook, wedding invitations etc)

All illustrations are based on the photos and written information you provide. Please send your photo references to kathrynselbert@gmail.com with your order # after you place your purchase.

Can you rush my proof?

Yes! Here is a link to the listing you should add to your cart along with the item of your choice to rush your proof for custom orders: https://www.etsy.com/listing/510427561/rush-order?ref=shop_home_active_2

If the above listing shows as not available, it means I am not currently accepting rush orders.

How do you create your images?

I draw my portraits freehand with Photoshop and a wacom tablet. For the watercolor images, I paint and scan in the elements separately, clean them up and then organize them with the text in Photoshop.

Holiday Cards: Can you provide a file of my family/house portrait without the holiday background?

Yes! Just remind me when you send along your photos/information. These will be sized 8.5x11

Holiday Cards: When is the last day you accept orders for holiday cards?

I usually close out orders for holiday cards on November 15th. If I have a particularly large number of orders I sometimes close earlier. I recommend ordering as early as possible! My schedule gets crazy. If you can still see cards - I am still accepting orders.
