About

Welcome to Nostalgic Imprints!

Nostalgic Imprints was born from a love of photography and graphic design.

Our shop name truly reflects that definition of each word:

Nostalgic – (nos*stal*jik) a wistful desire to return in thought or in fact to a former time in one's life, to one's home or homeland, or to one's family and friends; a sentimental yearning for the happiness of a former place or time; things that cause you to think affectionately about the past

Imprints – (im*prints) to fix indelibly or permanently, as in the mind or memory; to impress; a strong permanent influence on someone or something

Our goal is to capture the nostalgic events of your life that have left an imprint in your mind and in your heart. With the use of custom stationery, flush mount albums and more we will help you to capture and celebrate the exhilarating, cheerful and life-affirming moments in your life.

Whatever the occasion or event, we can present your photographs in a memorable way. From wedding albums or guest books and travel journals to birth announcements and wedding thank you cards, I am here to help you!

We have several new products that we will be launching shortly. Check back soon or visit www.nostalgicimprints.com.

Frequently asked questions
When will I receive my first proof?

For our products including a proof, proofs will be sent via Etsy convo approximately 2 to 4 business days after we have received your order & all of the details for an order. All new proofs resulting from requested changes, will be sent 1 to 3 business days after the change request was received. Each card or guest book order includes 2 minor revisions. Each photobook/album order includes minor revisions to 3 pages. Changes beyond this and all font/layout changes will incur fees.

For our wood letter guest books, each order includes one proof for two different photo files. If you would like to see additional proofs for more photos, additional fees will apply for each additional photo file.

All timelines are expressed in business days.

How do I receive a quote for my invitations?

We do have pricing for our standard invitation suites in our invitations listings however if you would like to add or remove products from the standard suite, we would love to give you a customized quote! Contact us via Etsy convo with details regarding what you are looking for and we will provide you with a quote. Please note, all quotes are valid for 15 days. As our suppliers update their prices our prices may need to change to reflect any changes in our supplies.

Can I change the shipping address on my order?

Please send us an Etsy message to request a change of address and we will let you know if we are able to make the requested change. If you order was paid by PayPal, your order has entered into production or has already shipped, we are unfortunately not able to amend the shipping address.

Can I cancel my order?

To ensure that you received your proofs quickly, our design process begins as soon as we receive your order. Cancellations must be requested within 1 hour of purchase. After this 1 hour window, we are no longer able to cancel an order. Also, once an order is in production, it cannot be canceled.

If you would prefer to have a different card designed in place of the original design you have purchased, additional fees of $29.99 will be incurred if the new card you would like to change to is the same size as the card you had originally ordered. If the new card is a different size the additional fee will be $29.99 plus the cost difference for the new cards.

I have found an error with the items I received for my order.

Although we do strive for perfection, there may be the odd instance where an unforeseen error occurs with an order. If you do receive an order that has an error, please contact us right away and will review the matter as soon as possible. If the error is a result of our work, we will gladly correct the error and send out new products.

Please make sure that you have carefully checked the details provided to us for spelling errors, typos etc. We are unable to reprint or refund orders where the information provided to us for the order had spelling errors or typos. We will work with you to recreate the order, however we are unable to provide a refund for the original order placed.

What type of card stock do you use for your cards?

All products are printed on 130# stock unless otherwise noted. All cards also print full bleed, there is a 1/4" trim guideline on each edge of the card for cutting purposes.

All printed cards will be cut on the designated trim line, however the cut may shift up to 1/16 of an inch in any direction during production. As a result, the borders on some cards may be slightly uneven after printing.

Please note, we offer a variety of envelopes so not all of our listings will include envelopes. If the listing for the cards includes envelopes, the envelopes included will be white unless stated otherwise. Please note, envelopes may be shipped separately from stationery orders and we do recommend mailing cards with the torn edges in an envelope.

Can your books be used for photo albums? What steps should I follow?

Our books can be used for photo albums however please note our casebound books don't have an expandable spine and may not lay flat after photos have been added to the pages. When used as an album, we don't recommend using a significant number of photos as the book will not lay flat when closed. The number of photos that can be used per page depends on the size of the book and the size of the photos. The smaller the size and number of the photos the better. We also do not recommend putting more than 1 photo per sheet of paper as the book will become bulky and may not close if more photos are used. Mounting strips should be used instead of photo corners. These are our suggestions if you decide to use our casebound books as a photo album.

Will my printed cards or my guest book be the exact same color that I see on my screen?

Please keep in mind that colors may vary between monitors and printers. Therefore there may be a slight variation between the color that appears on your computer screen or electronic device and the colors generated for your printed products.
The foil used for our products will be either be gold, silver or rose gold depending on the selections made at checkout. Other foil colors may be available only when listed. All foil for guest books and cards is raised foil and not stamped.

Can I see a proof of my guest book cover?

Of course! We will send a proof via Etsy convo 2 to 4 business days after we have received your order if a proof is requested. If you would like your book cover to be a different color than the color shown in the main listing image, please include this request in your order notes. We will move book orders into production 1 business day after we have sent the proof if we have not received a response to our convo with the proof. We do this to ensure all books are shipped out as soon as possible. Production for the book is completed approximately 5 to 7 business days after we sent notification that the book entered into production. USPS Priority Mail is used for the standard shipping for guest book orders sent within the United States.
