Additional policies and FAQs
Please contact me via Etsy conversation if you are interested in a custom order, but please note that custom orders will require extra production time and often have minimum quantity requirements.

Please also feel free to review all of my sold items and if you're interested in purchasing something I've sold but is not currently available, contact me. Generally, I can recreate items or make a similar item in different colors.

Due to the handmade nature of shortgrass designs’ goods, items may have slight variations. These variations should not be considered imperfections, but, rather, proof that your purchase is one-of-a-kind!

All items come from a smoke-free home.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about any of my items or policies.
