About

Loving What I do...

Hi there! I'm a Miami-based graphic designer and freelancer. When not working with awesome design clients you'll find me doodling or experimenting with collage, illustration, and patterns. Combining my love of design with constant personal projects, experiments and play, (it's a form of mediation) this is what has led to the creation and evolution of this shop. (You can find lots of works in progress over at my new instagram, @PaperSquidShop - I hope you'll say hello and follow along).

When not freelancing, I enjoy designing paper goods with the honest intention to hopefully inspire your everyday, add joy to your home and personal spaces, and make your already special events even more awesome.

Creating colorful, original, humorous and uplifting designs also serve as a form of meditation and exploration. Doing this and being able to share it with others is something I have gratitude for.

As for the invitations in this shop, it began with the births of my niece and nephew, Mila & Miles, for who I designed their baby shower invitations and have been hooked ever since!

All of the designs and illustrations you'll find here are created by me Karyna, with the sometimes help of my partner, Juan.

Most items are digital items (such as customized invitations), and will be emailed to you at the email address listed by you in your etsy account. (Please make sure it is correct).

IN THE U.S.: My printed invitations and other items are shipped directly to you or the address you request. I use USPS Priority Mail 2 day shipping. Invites are sent to print and ship AFTER they have been reviewed and approved by you. Please allow 7-10 to complete printing and then shipping for arrival to you >AFTER< you have given final approval and the go-ahead to print.

OUTSIDE THE US: I use USPS First-Class Package International Service which may take anywhere from 7-14 days for arrival. For a faster shipping method please contact me and I'll set-up a special listing for you with this shipping price included.

I cannot guarantee timely shipping outside the U.S. If you are in an extreme time crunch it is best to print invitations or any other items locally.

Paper Squid Inc. cannot be held responsible for color differences seen on screen versus the final printed pieces. Colors on your computer screen and printed material may vary due to differences in monitor calibrations. As well there are many varied methods of printing, from home printing, and many companies, as well as there are many paper options such as photo gloss to matte cardstock - therefore the best option for guaranteed color is for Paper Squid Inc. to print them. Other options may vary slightly.

Frequently asked questions
Do I receive a digital proof to review my invitation and/or custom design/order?

YES. If you are purchasing one of my invitation designs (or any design item that requires customization on my part with your personal information), YES, I do provide a digital proof for you to review. This proof is usually received within 24-72 hours (as all listings state). You will get a chance to review your invitation &/or custom item and approve as perfect OR make any final changes. Once approved I then email you all final files within 24-48 hours.

How long before I receive my final digital files for a purchased invitation and/or custom item?

All invitation designs (and/or any other items that require customization by me for you), are usually worked on within 24-72 hours of purchase. A digital proof will be sent to you via etsy's messaging system within 24-72 hours of purchase. You get to review your invitation design (& or other custom item) and approve as perfect OR make any final changes. Once you reply to me that all is approved or with your changes, I then send all final files within 24-48 hours. PLEASE NOTE: if you take a long time to reply or quite a few days, this will affect timeline.

Do I also provide printing services for invitations?

YES, I provide full printing services. All invitations listings are digital print-your-own items. Many however do not like the hassle of printing, therefore I provide printing separately (add to cart & purchase). The Printing section can be found here: http://etsy.me/2cLOpjy

Printing listings are organized by quantity. All printing with me (usually for invitations) will turn our beautifully & INCLUDES:

• Printed on premium white 120lb. card stock
• Double sided printing for a nice touch
• Free white envelopes (qty to match purchase qty)
• 2 Day United States Postal Service Priority Shipping

► PLEASE NOTE
Colors on your computer screen & printed material may vary due to differences in monitor calibrations & printer/paper variations.

How long will it take to receive my printed invitations if I decide to purchase printing?

If interested in printing I do provide full printing services, (please see question above).

From the day you order your invitation, you will receive a customized digital proof of your invitation to review within 24-72 hours of purchase. You receive this digital proof so that you may review the invite and make any final changes until perfect. As soon as you reply to me (depending on your own timeline reply), I then send final files/edits within 24-48 hours for final approval and prep your files to print. Once sent out to print (after your approval), it then takes 3-5 days to physically print, THEN 3-7 days to receive in the mail.

Do you offer reprints of invitations or other items printed by you?

My shop offers full printings services for your convenience (please see the two questions right above this for more details).

As I note, since I provide a digital proof of the invitation for your review, (this digital proof allows you the opportunity to make any final last edits until perfect, OR to approve the invitation design as final). Nothing goes to print without YOUR APPROVAL. Therefor I DO NOT offer reprints of invitations if any information is later noticed as incorrect on your part because a digital proof was provided. Printing will have to be repurchased once again.

Now if for any reason you receive invitations where the printing is completely off, pictures will be needed for me to review and assessed on a case by case basis.

I want to print on my own, where do I print my digital files?

Digital print-your-own files can be printed at home, or locations such as Kinkos, Walgreens, Snapfish and elsewhere. With all my invitation listings and most other listings, I provide a detailed pdf on best printing results, printing tips and links, papers, & more.

► PLEASE NOTE
Colors on your computer screen and printed material may vary due to differences in monitor calibrations and printer/paper variations.

Can I change the wording &/or color of an invitation?

WORDING:
Yes, you may change the wording of an invitation. So no extra fees are incurred, at checkout in "Message to Seller" box (or send me an etsy message before purchase or as soon as you purchase) send me all your invitation details AND the custom wording you'd like. At no extra charge I can do this for you! If wording is changed after 1st proof there is a fee of $5.

COLOR:
Yes, the color(s) of invitation can be changed. There is an extra charge / reasonable fee of $4. Just add the "color change" listing to cart along with any other items for purchase. That link can be found here: http://etsy.me/1UgRoAw

You'll need to provide me exact RGB/CMYK colors, OR image reference of colors you'd like. I can always help if you have questions.
