About

Custom Luminary Maker

I started creating my Luminaries back in 2010 when I came up with the idea for my own music themed wedding! That is how it all began. Now I create them for other brides and I am honored to do so! I am formally trained as a sculptor. Professionally I work as an Art Therapist in an inpatient psychiatric facility, and I spend my days encouraging people to express themselves through the arts.

I specialize in custom wedding, party and event orders. My luminary bags are professional and seamless. I create them with lots of care and attention to detail. They are fashioned from scratch one at a time with original vintage papers! I create luminaries out of a variety of papers with a variety of cutout shapes. I use children's storybooks, maps, travel books, blueprints, dictionaries, hand marbled paper, yearbooks, vintage recipes, vintage book pages, sheet music and more! My work has been featured on these amazing sites...Emmalinebride.com, Bookriot.com, Wedeclectic.com, Rocknrollbride.com, Confetti Daydreams Wedding Blog, Kristinrogersphotography.com, Buffalo Magazine

Please contact me with custom requests and questions, thank you for stopping by! Suzie

Returns and exchanges
All sales are final. If there is a problem with your order please contact me immediately. Items are made using upcycled materials and due the nature of the materials they can be fragile so please handle with love and care. I do not do refunds or returns, once order is placed it is confirmed and processed and cannot be canceled. This is because with the nature of my work extra vintage supplies need to be ordered/purchased to work on specific luminary collections and supplies can get costly so I cannot cancel orders.
Payment
I accept Paypal & Direct Checkout through Etsy using your credit card. Payment is due at the time of purchase. Etsy gift cards also accepted. I do not do refunds or returns, all sales are final because all of my work is custom made.
Shipping
All items are handpackaged with the utmost care. I ship my items out USPS First Class mail. If you need your item(s) sooner just convo me and I can set up a Priority Mail or Express Mail listing for you. Oldendesigns is not responsible for lost packages, customer needs to resolve with USPS. Tracking is always provided.

All items are carefully hand packaged and luminaries are shipped flat, folded into a flat shape, in protective packaging and marked "fragile" and "do not bend" for increased protection. They are shipped in strong chipboard sleeve packaging and/or stiff cardboard boxes for extra protection. When you receive them carefully insert your hand inside to prop them open.
***Luminaries are to be used with fake led candles only, they are not "fireproof"
***Please double check that your shipping address is correct on your order, the address that shows on your Etsy receipt is the address I will ship to.

INTERNATIONAL
International first class mail can take a few weeks or more 2-4 weeks generally due to customs depending on the country. I ship international orders first class unless customer contacts me for upgrade in shipping. International shipping is ship at your own risk. Insurance and tracking can be very expensive so it is not included in shipping costs. If interested contact me. Oldendesigns is not held responsible for lost international packages. Proof of shipping will be provided, of course, to show that I did ship and a photo of your stamped customs form that is attached to package, I am good for my word and swear your package is shipped. Once it leaves USA there is very little control for sellers to access package location unless customer pays for tracking.
****If your order is over $200 and you are international I will contact you about shipping costs, you may need to pay more to cover tracking, depending on your country****I will contact you right away if that is the case* All orders over $200 will require Priority Mail Express which is expensive, but the upside is that your package will arrive much quicker like in a week or less and it will be guaranteed delivered. Oldendesigns is not held responsible for any fees having to be paid by customer in their country of origin. All fees are paid on USA end that seller is responsible for. Customer responsible for any extra fees upon delivery in their country if their country charges them extra fees.
Additional policies and FAQs
I only communicate via Etsy through email only. I do not make calls on my personal cell phone. I am happy to talk via emailing if you have questions regarding custom orders or an order you already placed. Thanks for understanding.

All of my luminaries only have cutouts on the front side of the bags. This is how luminaries are traditionally made because they illuminate better this way. When cutout on both sides they do not illuminate as well and you can see though to the other side. Visually, I do not like the look so I only do my cutouts on the front.
