Any designer providing designs without a built-in bleed margin is NOT a professional graphic designer - a bleed margin ensures your invitations/cards will print out properly.

•••►Order Cancellation Requests are NOT ACCEPTED because you did not take the time to read this or my policies and I make sure to have this posted throughout my Etsy shop - on the banner display, this announcement box, my shop avatar, and on my policies page. If you have procrastinated and your event date is too close to allow for proper processing of your order, any order that cannot be completed as a result may be canceled but be SUBJECT TO A CANCELLATION CHARGE OF $8.00 - NO EXCEPTIONS◄••• Cancelling an order is a major inconvenience. Also per Etsy's Terms of Use - Sales are Binding and Buyers acknowledge having read shop policies prior to placing an order

Why an inconvenience? Because I am still obligated to enter the sale into my accounting system, the sale is also reported (even if canceled) to the government for income tax purposes, I must also enter a credit transaction in my accounting system, go through the order cancellation process on Etsy to recover the fees assessed to my account for the order, and also go through a Refund process with PayPal. This is not fair to me - it takes too many actions on my part which take away from my actual paid work - thus the order cancellation fee of $8.00 applies for the inconvenience caused.
