About

Bringing Sunshine To Your Mailbox One Greeting Card, Invitation, and Note Card at a Time

My name is Vikki and I started Playa Paper with the mission of keeping letter writing, sending invitations, and mailing cards alive. I receive most of my creative inspirations from living by the beach, so I named my business Playa Paper because "Playa" means beach in Spanish.

Our story started in Los Angeles by the beach where we opened Playa Paper in our tiny one bedroom apartment in Redondo Beach. Today, we are based in sunny and beautiful St. Petersburg, Florida.

I make cute and clever greeting cards and elegant and bold invitations that are custom designed and printed in my home studio. There are several things that make my greeting cards and invitations special. First, each one of my greeting cards is personalized with the name of the recipient on the back of the card. This customized extra touch is something that the receiver will surely notice when he or she flips the card over. Second, each one of my greeting cards and invitations is individually handcrafted with a gem and a dash of glitter for a vibrant accent. Third, each one of my greeting cards and invitations includes U.S. postage stamps that are carefully selected to match the colors and designs of your custom order. The stamps that I use to match the colors and designs of your order come from my large vintage and modern pop culture stamp collection that I have collected over many years. (Yes, I’m a stamp nerd!) Fourth, all of my paper products are individually printed on high quality paper with long-lasting archival digital inks in my home studio, so customers are supporting a local, proudly Made in America small business and your paper product will last a lifetime. Fifth, all Playa Paper products include matching colored envelopes and round envelope seals for a stylish and bold touch. Lastly, I make hard to find, original cards in new categories (e.g., pet adoptiversary, dog cards, cat cards, pet sympathy cards) and for niche consumers (e.g., couples in interfaith relationships, gay couples, and Spanish cards).

I hope you enjoy browsing my shop. If you don’t find what you’re looking for, please contact me to discuss your custom design needs.

I also invite you to keep in touch via your favorite Social Media by following me @playapaper to learn about upcoming local events, promotions and new products.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my Playa Paper Etsy Shop and have fun stationery shopping! Vikki xx

Returns and exchange details
All Playa Paper sales are final.

As all Playa Paper products are custom-made for each customer, I am unable to accept returns and offer refunds on my products since they cannot be re-sold to anyone else. However, I want you to be satisfied, so if an issue comes up with your order please contact me so we can work together to find a solution. Thank you.
Payment
All Playa Paper orders must be paid in advance and all Florida orders are subject to Florida State sales tax of 7%.

For large custom invitation orders above $300, I will accept a down payment of 50% of the order upfront before I start work on the order, with the remaining 50% paid at the time of order completion prior to shipment.

I accept all major credit cards and Paypal for payment.

Playa Paper orders cannot be cancelled once an order is placed because all orders are custom designed and printed for each customer.
Shipping
I strive to ship out all Playa Paper orders of greeting cards or invitations on my website within 3 to 5 business days of receiving payment. Custom designed invitation and greeting card orders will take longer to complete. If you need an order by a specific date, please contact me in advance and I can give you an estimated time of order completion.

All Playa Paper greeting card and custom invitation orders are shipped from St. Petersburg, Florida. Your card will be packaged and shipped with the utmost care so that you will receive it in perfect condition.

We ship all packages via USPS First Class Mail and a Tracking Number will be provided. Shipping rates will be calculated by Etsy at the time of checkout.

Upgrades are available to USPS Priority Mail and USPS Express Mail at the time of check out. Please note that if you select Priority Mail, this service normally takes 2 to 3 days for the post office to deliver, but it is not guaranteed by the post office. The only guaranteed service is USPS Express mail.

If USPS Tracking says, "Delivered" but your package did not arrive or it is missing, please follow up with the post office or your mail carrier directly as we cannot locate a missing package or offer a refund once it has left our Playa Paper stationery shop and has been delivered to the post office.

Insurance is also recommended for your package as I cannot be held responsible if a package is lost in the mail by the post office.
