Updates

I’m so excited to have found a new supplier of this shade of pink cardstock that was previously discontinued. Stay tuned for lots of new designs using this cardstock.
***New*** All listings now have this example for size referencing to show how big our invitations are. All of our invitations are the same size so this example is a great reference for any one of our themed invitations. Size is listed in each listing.

About

How I started making my invitations

This little shop started when I was planning and DIYing a lot of my wedding decorations. After guests at our wedding kept complimenting me and telling me I should sell what I made. I started NicFitz Creations shortly there after crafting paper goods and vinyl decals.

I have moved away from the wedding decor and vinyl and onto my unique boxcard invitations when I couldn't find a unique invitation that I liked for my daughter's 1st birthday. Once friends and family saw them they were a huge hit and I decided to go into making and selling these cute and unique invites.

The boxcard style invitations are handmade and very labour intensive. To make 10 invitations takes anywhere from 1.5-2 hours. This doesn't include any design changes.

Early in 2017 I felt the name NicFitz Creations didn't suit my business anymore and so Out of the Box Invitations was created and implemented March 1, 2017.

On a personal note I am a Mom to two children (10 and 4), I have a full time job outside of Out of the Box Invitations and am also going to school to upgrade for my 9-5 job.

Shop policies

Last updated on November 20, 2018
Welcome to Out of the Box Invitations. We specialize in unique pop up boxcard invitations.

I try to cover all policies in my listings so I'm transparent. I reserve the right to update these policies at any time. The following policies will be strictly adhered to:

1) I do not accept cancellations or returns. In many cases, I start working on your order right away and due to the custom nature of invitations with their personalization I cannot accept returns.

2) There is a minimum order of 5 invitations unless you have specifically purchased the sample listing. All orders for less than 5 invitations will be canceled and refunded.

3) A proof of your information flaps will be sent to you within 12 hours of receiving your party details for you to review and approve. Production time on your order does not start until I have your proof approval. All changes and approvals must be finalized within 48 hours of receiving your proof (to ensure timely production and shipping of your order). If I do not receive the party information or approval I reserve the right to cancel and refund your order.

If you ordered 5-25 invitations your order will be ready for shipping 5 business days AFTER YOUR PROOF IS APPROVED. If you ordered 30-50 invitations your order will be ready for shipping 10 business days AFTER YOUR PROOF IS APPROVED. Your scheduled ship date will be updated (if applicable) after I receive your approval.

4) I cannot guarantee your order will arrive on a certain date as I have no control over the postal/courier service once your package is brought to them. Therefore I cannot refund shipping due to delays caused by customs, weather, transportation issues, etc. as the postal service/courier will not offer a refund either.

5) I will not create invitations using copyrighted images.

6) In the event of a missing product when cited delivered by the courier: Unfortunately, mail carriers/couriers will not honor insurance if your package is claimed missing but marked delivered by the carrier. It is very important that you track your package and know when to expect delivery to avoid possible theft activity or delivery to the wrong address. You will always receive a tracking number from Out of the Box Invitations the day your item ships. If you file a claim with Etsy, they will close your case. Out of the Box Invitations will not be liable for missing packages marked delivered by the carrier. However, you may take a claim up with your local police and home or renter's insurance.

7) The coupon code(s) listed in my shop accountment are not retro-active and cannot be applied to previous orders and will not be refunded should the buyer place an order without the coupon.

8) By purchasing from my shop you are consenting to sign up for Out Of The Box newsletter. You may opt out anytime by clicking the unsubscribe button.

9) Colors may be slightly different from what is seen on your monitor. I am NOT responsible for issues of colors not matching what you see on your monitor/screen. I am also NOT responsible for wording errors on invitation.
