We absolutely LOVE how our invites turned out! Kate did our design quickly and promptly made any changes we requested and they turned out perfectly. All of our guests and family have been raving about how awesome our invites are! Just what the bride and groom wanna hear :) she sent a few extra which have been a blessing! I would recommend her for any invite needs! Thanks!

I have nothing but good things to say about my experience. Kate was quick with her response times and accommodating with any and all requests/changes. I highly recommend using her.

Invites, RSVP postcards & envelope addressing turned out great! Colors were perfect and card stock was sturdy. I loved that we were able to change the cherries to Petoskey stones. That personal touch is just what we were looking for. Communication with Kate was awesome! She was very responsive and organized. Process was very easy. Would highly recommend to anyone!

From graphic design to stationery suites

Kate created Katlem Design in 2006 with a focus on graphic design, identity, and stationery design. As the business evolved Kate took great care and enjoyment from working with her stationery clients and decided to solely focus on growing that side of the business and helping her clients bring their visions for the weddings and special events to life.

While Kate had her Etsy shop for some time it wasn't until the end of 2012 that she really started incorporating wedding items into her shop. Since that time Katlem Invitations has been a great source for unique save the dates with a heavy focus on destination weddings and map style cards as well as invitations, and other day of paper products.

Kate designs and proofs each order, and she takes customer service and quality very seriously. To ensure that high standard of quality that Katlem Design's customers are used to, Kate now works with a printing partner to finish and ship each order. Kate has found that the quality of the printing and papers is even higher than she could produce in her own home studio.

Square invitations require additional postage due to the square shape. Please have it weighed at the post office prior to mailing.
With that being said, every post office judges the postage price differently. It’s best to wait until you receive your invitations and take a complete set (including envelope) to your local post office to be weighed .
Refunds and Exchanges
The products in my shop are custom printed and due to the nature of these products, I cannot make refunds or exchanges.

 Once I send you a personalized proof, there is no refund given on design charges. If you decide to cancel your order PRIOR to any design work being started I will be happy to refund your design charge. REFUNDS WILL NOT BE GIVEN AFTER 30 DAYS due to the amount of time spent contacting each buyer and corresponding with them.
 Please make sure that you have carefully checked your proofs for spelling errors, typos, layout modifications etc. I copy and paste your text from the form you fill out online.
 Katlem Design is not responsible for errors found after final proof approval. 

If an error is made by Katlem Design I will correct the problem as quickly as possible. We are all human after all and mistakes do happen! ☺

A NOTE ON COLOR: All computer monitors display colors differently and there is no guarantee for exact color matching.

 No refund or free reprints will be offered if the colors vary on the printed card from those on the digital proof you saw on your screen. If you need to order extra invitations the colors from one order to the next may shift as digital printers can vary from one run to the next of the same color.

PAPER SAMPLE PACK: If you purchased a sample paper pack, the samples are generic. They are meant to demonstrate the feel and quality of the papers I offer. I cannot offer printed samples of your exact order prior to purchase.

 While Katlem Design strives to avoid errors, I do not accept responsibility for typographical errors, spelling mistakes, or incorrect information on any project approved by you for printing/production. You (the Client) are to proof read and approve all final copy before the production of artwork. 
Approval is given either in writing via responding to a message on Etsy or by submitting the approval form I send you.

 No refunds or reprints are given after the final approved design has gone to print (unless it is a Katlem Design error un-related to proof reading). I am not responsible for images printing incorrectly (low resolution, incorrect color or blurred).

 It’s easy to overlook something if you’ve looked at it many times so I recommend that you have a couple of people read through and check over your proofs for spelling and grammatical errors. Make sure you have not omitted anything that you’d like conveyed to your potential guests.

PAYMENT: Orders will not go to print until Katlem Design receives your print approval and full payment.

ADDITIONAL CARDS: Please note that if you need to re-order cards after your design is approved and printed, the minimum re-order is 10 for each type, invite and RSVP, save the date, etc and the volume discount will not be provided based on the total number of cards you already ordered. It is advised to determine your needed quantity by counting households, not guests, then adding 20% extra for last-minute guest additions and keepsakes before placing your order. 

POST OFFICE CONCERNS: If you are concerned about damage while mailing I offer envelopes for RSVP cards and Save the Date cards. The post office uses massive sorting machines and massive printing machines to print barcode markings on all postcards. 
These processes might damage the cards.
Please note that we cannot be responsible for damage to items by the Post Office or their agents.

Paper goods left outside your home may be stolen or damaged by weather. Katlem Design is not responsible for stolen or damaged packages if you are not present at time of delivery and the damage occurs as a result of the delay in claiming the package

ORDER SIZE: Cards have a minimum order of 25 (in some cases I can do orders of 10) and can be sold in increments of 5.

NON-ENGLISH LANGUAGE Non-English language or bilingual invitations are available! I work closely with those clients to create their invitations. I’m not responsible for spelling errors and fonts are limited in the various languages. Additional design costs of $20 is assessed for non English language projects.
 Client will be responsible for providing all copy, grammar and punctuation in their requested language.

We DO print individually personalized cards and envelopes! (guest addressing).

Guest names and addresses can be printed on post cards and outer envelopes. Client is responsible for supplying an excel list of guest names and addresses. Katlem Design will be using this list AS IS. Please make sure to triple check before submitting.
