♦ PDF Collage Sheets ♦
PDF Collage Sheets will be emailed to your email provided on Etsy within 48 hours.

♦ Design Policy ♦
SPD's digital designs provide you with digital files only. They will be delivered to you via Etsy convo, or your Paypal email address if requested.

Expected turnaround can range depending on the design, please refer to the product listing for your purchase.

♦ Supplies Policy ♦
Supplies are shipped via First Class both in the US and internationally within 72 hours of payment clearing. Shipping via First Class is so we can offer the cheapest postal rates possible to our supply customers.

♦ Printing Policy ♦
All of our printed products are printed in house, cut, and packaged by hand. With that being said, turnaround on printed products can range from 3-14 business days dependent on the size of your order and the source of design files in which we print from (if we are designing for you or if you have provided your own.)

All printed products are packaged carefully and shipped in a mailer or Priority Mail envelope. We do our best to ensure the products you have ordered arrive to you safe and sound.

♦♦♦♦ Printed products are shipped via Priority Mail within the United States, and First Class for International orders due to the speed of shipping and flat rate envelope availability. We can ship First Class in the United States, if you prefer. Shipping will take longer but it is cheaper! Please let us know if you prefer that option. ♦♦♦♦

Shipping prices reflect the cost of shipping ONLY. Please convo us if you feel you were overcharged for shipping - we usually refund overages after shipping if they occur.

For your protection and ours, SPD will only ship to the Paypal address contained with your order. If the Etsy and Paypal shipping addresses do not match, we will contact you for verification. If a response with clarification is not given within three (3) days, SPD reserves the right to cancel the transaction via Etsy or ship solely to the Paypal address given.
Refunds and Exchanges
♦ PDF Collage Sheets ♦
We do not offer refunds or exchanges on PDF collage sheets due to the nature of the product.

♦ Design Policy ♦
Due to the nature of our products, time is money and we can't afford to refund you for time we have already spent working on your order! If you are unsatisfied with your design, please let us know and we will refund 50% of your purchase price - and withhold all rights to the designs in question (you may not use or keep design files if refunded.)

SPD reserves the right to cancel an order if we feel that we aren't your best option - a full refund will be given in such a scenario and we'll happily recommend another designer that we feel might be a better fit!

♦ Print Policy ♦
Due to the personalized nature of many of our print products, sales involving print are final. You will be sent a digital proof prior to printing, so please make sure all your details are correct!

Slight variations may exist in every order is hand cut with care. Color variations due to your monitor's display settings or stock type may also exist, please be aware that we will not assume responsibility for such discrepancies.

Images on your monitor will look slightly different when printed. The monitor uses a resolution of 72 DPI and is RGB based, while printing uses 300 DPI and is CMYK based. The colors on monitors look brighter than they will appear when printed.

Read our article about the differences between the color models and why it's important that the appropriate color model gets used:
