Paperspice specializes in personalized kids party invitations and matching printables: birth announcements, shower invitations and custom designs. All the designs are personalized by me and are supplied as high resolution digital files for printing and assembly by the customer.

Paperspice was born in November 2008 not long after I discovered the Etsy website. I had recently quit the rat race to become a freelance designer and I was looking for new career opportunities. I really enjoy creating new designs for my shop and I also love playing my own small part in making your celebrations extra special.

As a child I spent many happy hours filling sketchbook with drawings from my imagination. Nowadays I use my sketches as the basis for the all the designs in my shop. All the graphics used in the stationery designs are created by me and I also personalise each order myself.

I am also a keen crafter and when I am not working on orders for my Etsy customers or creating new designs, I like to relax by knitting, crocheting, sewing or baking. I also enjoying walking and gardening.

The Paperspice shop is in the United Kingdom and normal studio hours are Monday to Friday 9am -5pm BST. (BST is 6 hours ahead of EST) I am not usually able to work on orders or respond to emails outside these hours.

The turnaround time for invitation proofs and high resolution files for other personalized items is 1-2 business days. (Business days are Monday to Friday). Your invitation proof or high resolution file will be sent to the email address registered with your Etsy account unless requested otherwise.

The turnaround time for custom design proof is 4-5 business days. You custom design proof will be sent to the email address registered with your Etsy account unless requested otherwise.

* STEP 1
Purchase and then complete payment on the listing for the design that you have chosen. If you are new to Etsy then please take the time to read this helpful guide to buying on Etsy
Include your wording in the "Note to seller" box when you make you purchase. If you forget to include your wording when you make your purchase then please send it via Etsy conversations or email to jill [!at] If you have purchased a photo card, then please email your high resolution, uncropped photo, in JPEG format, to jill [!at]
I prepare a proof of the card which I will email to you for approval. Please see the home page of my shop for current proof turnaround times (The proof turnaround time starts when payment has been completed on the listing AND I have received your wording and photos, if required. I cannot start work on your order before that time.)
Let me know if you want to make any changes to the invitation or announcement and I will email you with a revised proof.
When you are happy with the proof, I will email you with the high resolution file that you can use to print your cards. Cards can be printed either at home, at your local print/copy shop or at a photo finishers.
I recommend that customers do a test print with the high resolution file (on the same printer that they intend to use to print the rest of their cards) to make sure that they are happy with everything before printing all of their cards. Please let me know if you have any problems.

Before submitting your photos for inclusion in an invitation or announcement card, please ensure that you are the photographer or that you have full permission from the photographer in the form of a copyright license, as I will not be held responsible for any misuse of copyrighted images.
