About

Bursts of Celebration In an Envelope

In the fall of 2009, as a Marketing Communications Specialist for a pin-up inspired women's retail chain, I began to design my own collection of paper goods and used them for my personal correspondence. My friends from around the globe liked them and inquired about the pricing, thus, my first Etsy store, GKkards was born.

I later on re-established GKkards in December 2010 and renamed it as Letter Parade which better captures my love for paper, the good ol' mail, and the kind of nostalgia one gets from a street parade. I wanted to bring a subtle burst of celebration in an envelope.

Now, my small collection of postcards, letter sets, labels, and note cards include fine wedding invitations. In the works are home and office goods. So visit Letter Parade often!

Thanks for reading!

Love & Letters,

Cindy Gonzales Kujat

    Hi there! I'm Cindy and I live in a tiny studio apartment in West Los Angeles with my musician husband, Dan. I've always been paper-obsessed, as well as design-obsessed so I married the two with my own aesthetic and voila! Letter Parade came to be!

Letter Parade, unlike Hallmark and Papyrus - is a dining room-corner turned little studio of a 28-year old creative type you might've met somewhere back in time. She transforms her ideas into visual candy on paper, packages each of her creations neatly then sends it away with a whole lot of care to those who appreciate her work of art. She is continuously in search of a more eco-friendly way to produce her papergoods starting with selecting an eco-conscious printer which uses post-consumer, recycled papers. There is a lot of love in this creative process of a one-woman "enterprise" (designing, book-keeping, inventory, production, customer-satisfaction, taxes, family, music, food and indie cinema) and for some reason you don't feel the love, then read on:

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Other Method
Payment
Letter Parade opened shop on December 13, 2010 and is continuously looking for ways to make it easier for shoppers to buy Letter Parade products.

_PAYMENT_
Now accepts all major credit cards, debit cards, as well as PayPal, and Amazon Payments. For check payment, please contact seller directly.

_TERMS_
If you would like to have an item reserved, convo me so I can make a separate listing otherwise, if you completed check-out of an item you intend to pay longer than 48 hours then you run the risk of getting your order cancelled. It's important for all parties to be happy!
If you want to cancel or make changes to an order, I can arrange that no questions asked, just do so in less than 24 hours from the time the transaction of that order was completed.
Shipping
I usually wait 24 hours after I received the payment to mail/ship an order to give my customers some time to cancel or make changes to the order. (I try and make a run for the post office whenever I can but with a day job, I have decided to make a trip once on weekdays and on Saturdays.) However, this does not apply with RUSH orders.

_METHODS_
Small quantity orders: will be mailed through USPS First Class Mail and should arrive anywhere in the US 2-3 business days. Since it's a regular mail, there will be no tracking number provided and an additional handling fee will also be added.
I mail/ship small orders Mondays thru Fridays.

Large quantity orders: for wholesale orders I recommend paying an additional insurance fee and delivery confirmation. Don't worry, if we're talking bulk orders I've already cut down my normal retail rate for you which you can then use towards insuring the package.
I mail/ship bulk orders Saturdays only because of the day job that I have a love/hate relationship with.

International orders: Convo me your information like shipping address so we can calculate shipping and handling charges. I will gladly work with you on finding the cheapest, fastest and/or most secure mail carrier available.

Upgrades: Yes I honor this request, too. We can use USPS Priority, FedEx or UPS. Additional charges will apply.

_PACKING_
Each card is individually wrapped with a clear plastic resealable cellopane. Cardboard backing will be included (no additional charge) for orders shipped internationally.

Letter Parade is big on recycling so boxes, mailers, bubble wraps, packing noodles, can and will be used.
Refunds and Exchanges
_DAMAGES_
Each product departs the studio in perfect condition. Should any damage incur during transit, I'd appreciate you including a picture that clearly shows the damaged part of the product. This is so I can perhaps repackage my products differently or switch mail carriers, whatever it takes to avoid the same problem from reoccuring. As for your damaged item, I will of course replace them with the same product or give you a refund.

_EXCHANGES_
Sometimes, the product you purchase online just doesn't turn out what you wanted. Please keep in mind that the colors vary per computer monitor. Whether it's the color, the size, the quality... just convo me within 10 days of receipt so we can arrange the return process and the new product you would like exchanged for the one that you got. Easy, huh?

Custom-orders are non-exchangeable and non-refundable. See below for more info about custom-orders.

Sorry, for now, I can't honor exchanges for international orders as shipping will not be reimbursed and they're not cheap either.

_REFUND_
I can refund the amount paid for the product, however I can't include the shipping and handling charges as such is a third party service.
Additional policies and FAQs
_WHOLESALE&CONSIGNMENT_
Letter Parade would love to! Letter Parade is currently developing a display case to go with all Letter Parade paper goods, a good product presentation is a large factor to generating more sales. Yes, that's why more and more Etsy sellers are becoming their own product stylists ;0) Oh and Letter Parade will cut a special pricing for wholesale buyers and store consigments.

_GUARANTEE_
If there's anything that Letter Parade have in common with the big wigs (Hallmark and Papyrus), it's the guarantee that every print is clear, colors bright, quality is perfection, paper used is top grade... so you get only the very best, inspected for the nth time product.

_CUSTOM ORDERS_
Requests of simple change of texts can be accomodated right away, especially for small orders. For bulk orders, it may take a few days to a week.

For more complicated requests, like alteration of design, incorporation of provided photos, etc., this process could take a week to a month. If it's a rush order, please specify so we can get right down to it! ;0)

Please note that you will receive electronic proofing and/or sample print of a custom-order before the final printing.

I'm sure there are lots I haven't covered in this page, so feel free to convo me if you still have some Qs. It's OK to be curious.

Thanks for shopping, browsing, and finding your way around my little shop, Letter Parade.
