About PiecesOfMePaperCraft

greeting card (noun)

Definition of greeting card:
a piece of paper or thin cardboard having any of a variety of shapes and formats and bearing a greeting or message of sentiment

Greeting cards are so much more than a piece of thin cardboard. My greeting cards are a product of my heart. They're inspired by the words and actions of people I encounter in my daily life. They're brought to life by situations and events. Amusing utterances deposit themselves into my brain. Sometimes a random image I stumble upon will stir a phrase or emotion. Many of my card sentiments are created from my own emotional experience. I'll often hash out a card idea for days or weeks before it finally makes it into my shop. I add ideas to a running note on my phone when inspiration hits me, whether it’s sitting at my desk at my day job or standing in line at the grocery store.

I started scrapbooking and card making in 1998 when my youngest was an infant. I opened this greeting card shop in October 2012, selling die cuts, gift tags and hand crafted cards. I gradually transitioned my shop to all printed cards. I'm a graphic designer and I enjoy creating my cards with text and digital images on my computer. In the summer of 2019 I invested in an Epson Workforce printer to amp up the quality of my printed cards and offer bulk orders. I still carry some of my older, traditional hand crafted cards in my shop but they're gradually being phased out.

I use Adobe Creative Suite to design my cards; mainly InDesign but also Photoshop and Illustrator. I'm not an illustrator or painter so I use other artists' images with permission and/or a commercial license on the majority of my card designs. I spend hours looking for unique, quality graphics for my cards and I have my favorite artists. My breast cancer “boob” cards were created with my own line drawing.

I live in a modest home in Massachusetts with my husband of almost 30 years. We have three adult children between us; our youngest daughter lives with us and our son and oldest daughter have their own homes. We have a big flame point Siamese mix cat who we adopted from a shelter in 2010 and three cats waiting at the Rainbow Bridge. Several of my pet sympathy cards were created after we said goodbye to our senior kitty, Flower, in March 2020. I've been a breast cancer survivor since 2017. My difficult year of treatment inspired me to create a line of breast cancer support cards for those currently dealing with the disease.

Etsy is my part-time fun job with a full-time commitment. When I'm not sitting at my home PC working on my shop or handling social media on my iPhone, I'm a part-time graphic designer at a small, local design studio. I use Adobe InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator and Acrobat at both my home and day jobs.

Thank you for visiting my Etsy greeting card shop! Take a look around and feel free to message me if you have a special request or question.

Pieces of Me Paper Crafts is a smoke-free, cat-friendly shop.

➤ 7/6/20: USPS SHIPPING DELAYS
USPS is currently experiencing delays with both tracking and delivery. I ship most orders in 1-3 business days but I can't control delays that are caused within the postal system. Please be patient if tracking isn't updated on your package for days at a time. Please see my policies section titled "Loss/Damage/Seller Error" for more information about delayed and lost packages.

➤ SHIPPING ADDRESS
Please double check that the mailing address submitted with your order is current and correct. Shipping labels are printed through Etsy using the mailing address provided with the order. Packages shipped to an incorrect address due to buyer error may be lost, delayed or returned to me by USPS. In this case, the buyer will be responsible for additional costs related to reshipping. I’ll contact the buyer and make no more than two attempts to collect payment for a new shipping label. If I don’t receive payment by a date determined by me, a refund will be made for the purchase price only. Original shipping charges are not refundable if a package is returned to me because of an incorrect mailing address.

➤ SHIPPING WITHIN THE UNITED STATES
Your item will be mailed USPS First Class Package Service within the time frame stated in the listing. Orders are processed Monday-Friday, excluding U.S. holidays. I do not process orders on weekends. All packages are packed with care to prevent damage and include delivery confirmation. First Class delivery typically takes 3-7 business days to arrive at its destination but there can be delays during busy mailing seasons and weather events. I have no control over delays once a package has entered the postal system and I can't guarantee delivery dates.

➤ PRIORITY UPGRADE
I offer a Priority Flat Rate envelope shipping upgrade to U.S. buyers at checkout for an additional fee. USPS estimates delivery at 2-3 days but it is NOT guaranteed. I have no control over postal delays once a package has entered the postal system and I can’t promise a delivery date.

➤ ALL DELIVERY TIMES QUOTED ARE ESTIMATES.
I have no control over tracking and shipping delays after a package has been picked up by the carrier.
Delivery times do not include the time it takes me to make and package an order before it’s shipped.
Contact me if tracking on your package shows *no movement* for at least two weeks.

Frequently asked questions
Can you personalize my tags with a name or phrase?

My tags are handmade by me but I'm not set up to print on them. I'd be happy to hand stamp "thank you" on your tags but I can't add names, dates or other personal information.

PLEASE CONTACT ME PRIOR TO PURCHASE to request hand stamping as it may require an additional charge. Messages left in the notes to seller at checkout without contacting me first may result in your order being delayed or cancelled.

Can I place a bulk order?

My shop carries several bulk packs of pet sympathy cards and thank you cards at different price points. If you’re interested in a bulk pack (10+ cards) of a specific card, please contact me privately so I can quote you a price. Larger orders require a longer processing time. See the next question for processing and shipping info.

How soon will I get my order?

My shop is located in Massachusetts. Ready to ship items are mailed in 1-3 business days.

Items that are labeled as "made to order" have a longer processing time that allows me time to make your order and package it for shipping. Made to order items usually ship within one week, depending on the size of the order.

Special requests will be shipped in the time frame agreed upon at the time of the order.

Delivery time** depends on your location and the method of shipping you choose at checkout. Most first class packages arrive in 4-7 business days. Priority delivery is usually 2-3 business days but is not guaranteed. See my shop policies regarding postal delays and lost packages.

**Delivery time does not include my processing time.

Is your shop pet free and smoke free?

My family members and I are non-smokers and share our home with a fat cat. My ready to ship items are stored in sealed plastic bins.
