☆.•:*¨¨*:•.☆ FAQ ☆•:*¨¨*:•.☆

Q: “How can I get the ♥ MOST♥ out of my shopping experience at Starlit Nest?”
A: The best way to order from my shop is to find a ready to ship item that delights you, purchase it from the listing, and wait joyfully for it’s quick arrival.

Q: “How might the fun of my shopping experience be dampened?”
A: Expecting specific colors/prints, customizations, or other alterations be made to a listed item will result in delays and possibly additional charges as well. Some exceptions are listed below. Please read on!

Q: “The listing says there is only “1” item in stock but I need more than one. Can I get more than 1?”
A: Yes, as long as the listing description does not say something like “LAST CHANCE” or “only ONE left!”. I will probably be able to make as many as you need. Please send me a message.

Q: "What else can I order to coordinate with my banner or quilt?"
A: I ♥ love♥ making gift sets and photo prop set ups. Add any of the following to your order: bibs, bow ties, necktie, doll quilts, crochet hats, flower and feather hair accessories, pillow covers, pillow cases, table runners... have any other ideas? ♥ Let me know!♥

Q: “Can I order a custom item? What do you consider a ‘custom order’?”
A: I ♥ *L*O*V*E* ♥ to do custom work, but restrictions and additional charges do apply. Please type “custom” in the search box of my shop or visit my “made to order” & “bridal” sections of my shop and find the listing that most closely works with your needs before sending me a message. General requests are welcome for listings that include the word “custom” in their titles (as well as most listings that say “made to order” but not all). Examples of color/print requests: “blue and yellow” (not: “cornflower and mustard”), “bright gender neutral prints” (not: “little yellow chicks and red/orange squiggles only”). The idea is to keep it very SIMPLE. To a conversation, you can attach an inspiration board or images such as the bedding to be used in the room to give me some direction. SUPER SEPCIFIC requests are accepted on a case by case basis and may (or may not) incur additional charges, depending on the complexity of the project.

Q: “Will you take a photo of the fabrics you will use for my approval, for my item before making it?”

A: Due to limitations on my schedule (and because of past experiences with some vey needy customers), I can only email ONE photo of fabrics for orders valued at $100 or more free of charge, at your request. Otherwise, there is a $20 per image charge until we come up with the perfect fabric combination for the project. I am sorry to have to do this but it is only because of the high volume of orders I receive daily.

Q: “Can I send you my own fabric for a project?”

A: YES! Please do, as this is the BEST way to be sure that a custom items will meet your needs as far as the colors/prints used. I may even be able to give you a (small) discount on the order. You can also have an online fabric shop send me the fabric directly.

Q: “What if I want to add or change out one or two flags in a ‘ready to ship’ banner you have listed in your shop? Is that OK? Can you make a quilt to the size I need?”
A: Probably, depending on availability of required materials. Please send me a message with your requests and I will set up a listing for you. The price will be adjusted in your revered listing. Keep in mind that super long banners and large quilts receive a discount! Remember to keep your requests simple and general for fast service!

Q: "I have something special I want written on my banner. Do you add letters to your banners?"
A: "Yes! Personalize my ready to ship flags for just $2 per letter or heart. You can suggest a font and/or color if you like, too. I also do hand embroidery/monograms on my quilts for an additional charge. See the last section in my "shop sections".

Q: “Can you add pompoms to my banner or quilt?”
A: Yes, please message me for a reserved listing. Pompoms are $2 per foot and come in white, off-white, pink and green.

Q: “I see a ready to ship banner in your shop that I like but can you change the trim color for me, or am I stuck with it the way it’s shown?”

A: I have several solid trim options that will not incur any additional charges and some printed trims that I could use for a small extra fee. Please send me a message for currently available options and pricing as well as lead time on the customized item.

Q: “I have an image of a quilt design I like, but it is not similar to any of your listings. Could you recreate the quilt for me in my chosen (general) color scheme?”

A: It never hurts to ask! Include in your message the image, required size in inches, and general color/print theme for the project.

☆.•:*¨¨*:•.☆*☆.•:*¨¨*:•.☆ REMEMBER: making changes to any listing results in a longer lead time and added charges! & NO returns on custom items!☆.•:*¨¨*:•.☆*☆.•:*¨¨*:•.☆


☆.•:*¨¨*:•.☆ D O M E S T I C S H I P P I N G ☆.•:*¨¨*:•.☆

(See also my Policies page for more information)

Q: “The item listing says “ready to ship”. Does that mean it will ship the same day?”
A: Maybe, but maybe not. It depends on how many orders I have ahead of yours in my queue. See the current lead times posted at the top of my “Shop Announcement”. Generally I ship out my items every other business day.

Q: “I need to receive my “ready to ship” banner ASAP, like this weekend! Can you ship it overnight?”
A: If your order totals $100 of more AND you have a FedEx or UPS account you can email me a PDF label and I will call for pickup as a courtesy to you. The service you choose MUST include “pick up” (which is usually about $15 extra), no exceptions (except maybe on an order of $350 or more). ALL OTHER ORDERS are sent USPS which does not offer overnight service. I will ship USPS Priority and you should have the the item within a couple of days of shipment if you are in the US.

☆.•:*¨¨*:•.☆I DO NOT under any circumstances guarantee delivery dates for my items, but I always do my best to work through my queue to your order as quickly as possible. ☆.•:*¨¨*:•.☆


☆.•:*¨¨*:•.☆ I N T E R N A T I O N A L S H I P P I N G ☆.•:*¨¨*:•.☆

Q: “Do you ship internationally? What if my item gets lost or stolen along the way?”
A: Yes I do, but keep in mind I am not responsible for items lost or stolen once they leave my possession. This is an important point and one that many people will argue with, but based on years of selling on Etsy this is the policy I have chosen. The postal service gives proof that the item was shipped, but tracking and insurance are EXTRA charges, options you may decide you want to purchase but they are NOT included in the shipping prices I have set for my shop. Please convo me if you want to include these services in your shipping charges. The (ONLY) 2 negative feedbacks I have received were from someone who disregarded this policy and blamed me for her package getting lost. It is unfortunate, but she received negative from me as well for rudely criticizing my shop policies. I have no idea if the items were even truly lost.


☆.•:*¨¨*:•.☆ R U S H M Y O R D E R ☆.•:*¨¨*:•.☆

Q: “The posted lead time for “made to order” items is not going to work for me. Do you offer “rush” service?”

A: Yes. The charge is $20 per banner up to 10' long ( or buy 3-5 banners and rush them all for a flat fee of $50). This gets your banner made in 5 working days or less; *usually MUCH less. Rush fees on other items such as quilts or banners longer than 10’ will be considered on a case by case basis only, so please contact me before ordering.


☆.•:*¨¨*:•.☆ D I S C O U N T S & W H O L E S A L E ☆.•:*¨¨*:•.☆

Q: “There is a place in the shopping cart that accepts a ‘coupon code’. Where can I find one for your shop?”
A: There are several ways to receive a coupon code:
-♥ - Sometimes I put one near the top of my “shop announcement”.
-♥ - I randomly but frequently announce them on my FB fan page. They are usually only good for 2-3 days.
-♥ - If you have a relatively popular blog with a “Links I Like” kind of page, or have a place for a button that can link to my shop, I will give you a one time 10-15% discount on any order in exchange for the link. But this offer is subject to approval on a case by case basis.


Q: “Do you give discounts on multiple items ordered at once?”

A: Yes, please see my shop announcement for current special discount offers and “gift with purchase offers”.

Q: “Do you give discounts to pro photographers? Do you swap products for images?”
A: I give out coupon codes to everyone, photographers and non-photographers. I may have some banners in my shop that need professional images which I can exchange for a discount refund, but please contact me before ordering to make sure the one you want qualifies. I usually give a 10% refund in exchange for 3-4 watermarked images that you give me permission to use as I like.

♥ ***♥ My generous customers graciously email me images to use free of charge, so at this time I am not doing any swaps. ♥ ***♥

Q: “I have a brick and mortar shop (or online shop). How do I set up a wholesale account with you, and what are your terms?”
A: Email my “Preferred Retailer’s Division” directly at starlitnest [!at] gmail.com with “Wholesale Status” in the subject box.


☆.•:*¨¨*:•.☆ O T H E R ☆.•:*¨¨*:•.☆

Q: “Do you donate items to: giveaways, charities, auctions, photographer’s workshops?”
A: Sometimes, depending on my work load. It never hurts to ask. Please do not be offended if I have to decline.

Q: “Do you make DIY kits for your items? I know how to sew and I would like to make it myself. Can I sell the item after I make it?”
A: Yes I do, for most items but not all. Please message me with the link to the listing(s) you like as well as the desired final dimensions in inches and any color/print requests and I will give you a quote. I give permission to sell finished QUILTS, as long as there is a link to my fabric shop: www.starlitnest.etsy.com . I do NOT give permission to sell banners made from my kits. I do not include tutorials for my kits, just some really basic instructions/tips, so you should have some sewing experience.

Q: “Do you participate in swaps for goods with other Etsy vendors?”

A: Not usually, unless you have a fabric shop. I might consider swapping for fabric if you have something I can use.

Q: "What if I copy you in any way, such as copying and paste descriptions, images, or anything else on your site?
A. You will get a letter from my attorney, who works for me pro-bono. You don't want that to happen, believe me. He is a total (fill in the blank) when he gets mad.


*****************************************************************************************
IMPORTANT!!! Attention new customers! I am so grateful to have such a thriving business, however I am not always able to respond to inquiries for new items immediately. You can bet that it is because I am putting all my time and energy into my existing orders, since many of them are needed for upcoming events and photo-shoots. My customers’ satisfaction is my number one priority, so if you see something you like, even remotely close to what you are looking for, please get your order into my queue by purchasing the item in the listing, and we can discuss the particulars and customizations when I get through any orders ahead of yours. I will always post my current lead time in this shop announcement so you will know what to expect. “RUSH” status is available for $20 per item and gets you to the top of the queue. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding! ♥ AND thank you for contacting me if you are not satisfied with your item BEFORE leaving feedback!

I may have some banners in my shop that need professional images which I can exchange for a discount refund, but please contact me before ordering to make sure the one you want qualifies. I usually give a 10% refund in exchange for 3-4 watermarked images that you give me permission to use as I like.

♥ ***♥ My generous customers graciously email me images to use free of charge, so at this time I am not doing any swaps. ♥ ***♥

Q: “I have a brick and mortar shop (or online shop). How do I set up a wholesale account with you, and what are your terms?”
A: Email my “Preferred Retailer’s Division” directly at starlitnest [!at] gmail.com with “Wholesale Status” in the subject box.

Q: “Do you donate items to: giveaways, charities, auctions, photographer’s workshops?”
A: Sometimes, depending on my work load. It never hurts to ask. Please do not be offended if I have to decline.

Q: “Do you make DIY kits for your items? I know how to sew and I would like to make it myself. Can I sell the item after I make it?”
A: Yes I do, for most items but not all. Please message me with the link to the listing(s) you like as well as the desired final dimensions in inches and any color/print requests and I will give you a quote. I give permission to sell finished QUILTS, as long as there is a link to my fabric shop: www.starlitnest.etsy.com . I do NOT give permission to sell banners made from my kits. I do not include tutorials for my kits, just some really basic instructions/tips, so you should have some sewing experience.

Q: “Do you participate in swaps for goods with other Etsy vendors?”

A: Not usually, unless you have a fabric shop. I might consider swapping for fabric if you have something I can use.

Q: "What if I copy you in any way, such as copying and paste descriptions, images, or anything else on your site?
A. You will get a letter from my attorney, who works for me pro-bono. You don't want that to happen, believe me. He is a total (fill in the blank) when he gets mad.


*****************************************************************************************
IMPORTANT!!! Attention new customers! I am so grateful to have such a thriving business, however I am not always able to respond to inquiries for new items immediately. You can bet that it is because I am putting all my time and energy into my existing orders, since many of them are needed for upcoming events and photo-shoots. My customers’ satisfaction is my number one priority, so if you see something you like, even remotely close to what you are looking for, please get your order into my queue by purchasing the item in the listing, and we can discuss the particulars and customizations when I get through any orders ahead of yours. I will always post my current lead time in this shop announcement so you will know what to expect. “RUSH” status is available for $20 per item and gets you to the top of the queue. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding! ♥ AND thank you for contacting me if you are not satisfied with your item BEFORE leaving feedback!

Shop policies

Last updated on July 6, 2016
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve you. I put all my heart into my handmade items, and your satisfaction is my priority. Please let me know if you have any concerns or special requests.


☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆

☆My fabric shop: www.starlitnest.etsy.com and my prescription pad cover shop: www.stylerx.etsy.com ... I have nearly 8,000 items sold and 100% positive feedback. Not to mention all the sales and great feedback in THIS shop!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
  • Check
Payment
CC and paypal gladly accepted.

Checks/Money Orders: If you need to write me a check I can hold the item for you for 3 days. After cashing your check I can send your item. I will not start working on your item(s) until payment clears. There may be a few orders ahead of yours, so please convo me if you have a deadline for the item(s).
Shipping
US Customers: your banner ships via regular first class mail unless the package weighs over 13 ounces. if you would like to pay for insurance or need to upgrade to Priority Mail or Express Mail, please let me know and I will invoice you.

I do not guarantee delivery/arrival dates for my items because I can't be responsible should USPS take longer than normal to deliver your item. If you need your banner right away and prefer to have it shipped Express Mail, let me know and I will adjust your listing or invoice you for the upgrade.

International Customers: You are responsible for any customs fees charged by your country. Every country is different and there is no way for Etsy sellers to know what you will pay for your item, if anything. We can't include this fee in our shipping charges. Thank you for doing the research necessary to inform yourself about your particular country's custom fees. AND Please do not ask me to lie on your customs form and say it is a gift or give a lower value than what you paid. For one thing, Etsy prepares the label, not me, and secondly you would be asking me to commit fraud.

I include in my shipping prices a VERY small handling fee included in what you pay for shipping that helps me with paypal and etsy fees, travel to and from the post office, and packaging supplies. If there is a gross over charge of shipping let's talk about getting you partial refund!
Refunds and Exchanges
I have 100% positive feedback after selling thousands of items: for the craftsmanship of my items (and my fantastic customer service). Handmade items often have a handmade, not factory made look. It is possible that your item will have characteristics that make it unique and special, and by checking out of the cart you agree that small imperfections are part of what makes a handmade item wonderful. HUGE imperfections are another story, so please email me right away if you notice something I may not have caught... for whatever reason! I will work with you to make sure you are totally satisfied. Please do contact me before leaving a review, as with all shops on Etsy.

EXCHANGES: I am more than happy to discuss an exchange if you are unhappy with the fabrics in your banner and want something a little different. I have become a little bit picky about exchanges because I have had items returned to me in used, unsellable condition, so I have to be a bit strict on this rule: items must be returned nicely so I can sell it again without having to mend or iron it. Thank you for respecting my hard work! :)

CUSTOM: No returns or exchanges on custom orders, sales on all custom merchandise is final. However, I may make an exception for you IF I can sell it for what you paid and the item is returned in new condition. If you need something customized after you receive it, you are welcome to message me about it, and I'll see what I can do. Shipping fees back to me, and to return the item back to you are your responsibility.
Additional policies and FAQs
"RUSH" orders will incur an extra fee, depending on the type of project. Please inquire if you need something in a hurry.

***Please accept my apologies if I am not able to respond to your convo immediately.

Thank you for your support, and please "like" my Facebook page: Starlit Nest GIfts. Fans receive coupon codes for all of my products.

If you are a professional portrait photographer, please convo me for additional discounts in return for trading photos of banners that I do not have photo of yet AND a mention on your blog and facebook fan page.

Again, as with any seller on Etsy: PLEASE contact us BEFORE leaving feedback if it is 3 stars or less!
