About

A Passion for Unique and Stylish Designs for Unique Customers!

The concept of Starlite began in 1998 with the birth of my first son. I was a first grade teacher and decided to be a stay-at-home Mom to raise my children.
It took me one full year to design and publish a fully functioning e-commerce website - one of the very few available at the time in 1999. This was how Starlite Weddings & Occasions began - http://starwedd.com

The e-commerce business blossomed and eight years later, in 2007 I began doing graphic design work. In 2008 I opened my Etsy shop and originally began offering a line of unique photo birth announcement and baptism invitation designs. I later expanded my offerings to include designs for first communions, baby showers, bridal showers, birthdays, anniversaries and so much more!

//// PROFESSIONAL BLEED MARGINS INCLUDED ///

★★All of my invitation & card designs INCLUDE a Professional Bleed Margin
NO EXCEPTIONS★★
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.

All PRINTED invitations/cards order will INCLUDE a small Starlite logo on the back side.

★★I DO NOT SELL ANY OF MY DESIGNS BLANK – NO EXCEPTIONS★★

►INVITATION/STATIONERY AND PRINTING BUSINESSES - All of my Etsy shop listings do say (at the bottom) that my designs are for PERSONAL USE only - reproduction of any other kind is strictly PROHIBITED. This clearly means that I do NOT accept digital file sales from any invitation/stationery business NOR any printing business/print shop of any kind as you would be printing my DMCA protected and copyrighted designs for resale and profit to your customers - NO EXCEPTIONS. Any such business may only place a PRINT PACKAGE order from this shop/me and all printed invitations will include the Starlite name and logo in small size on the back. By placing your order, you agreed to all the policies and terms. Thank you for your cooperation.

•••►IMPORTANT - REGARDING DESIGN SIMULATIONS / EFFECTS
GLITTER / FOIL / ETC
For designs with Gold Glitter, Silver Glitter, any color Glitter or Gold / Silver Tone these are NOT real. They are high resolution / high quality graphic effects / images ONLY and will NOT print out as actual glitter NOR ink - that is technologically impossible. Remember, these are NOT real and I do provide this information in the listing details / descriptions.
ABSOLUTELY NO REFUNDS FOR CUSTOMERS EXPECTING REAL GLITTER, GOLD, SILVER, ETC. as this was indicated in the listing description and here on my policies page.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
I accept PayPal for your orders. You can pay using your credit card via PayPal even if you do not have a PayPal account. Your prompt payment is always required!

PRINTED INVITATIONS/CARDS & OTHER ITEMS
•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
For orders OTHER THAN printable designs, MOST of our shipping is done via UPS Expedited for invitation/stationery orders - However, for Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and Virgin Islands, we will ship using Priority Mail service.

For CANADA and INTERNATIONAL destinations, we will ONLY use EXPRESS MAIL INTERNATIONAL - NO EXCEPTIONS as this is the most highly reliable and efficient method and includes tracking information.
Refunds and Exchanges
•••►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, announcement section, and on my policies page. If you have procrastinated and your event date is too close to allow for proper processing of your order, OR you request cancellation BEFORE ANY WORK HAS BEEN DONE ON YOUR ORDER, assuming responsibility for not having read posted turnaround times, 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 https://www.etsy.com/legal/buyers/?ref=list#purchasing

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.

Any printable/digital invitation order received from a stationery/invitation business or printing place/print shop will be CANCELED and subject to the order cancellation inconvenience fee.

//// PRINTABLE INVITATION & PARTY PRINTABLE DESIGN ORDERS ////

Because graphic design and proof creation happen in the sequence of orders received, you do not know if I have already partially begun working on your first proof therefore please be sure of your order prior to making a purchase as I will NOT issue you a refund once your order has been placed in the proof production queue.

The PRINTABLE DESIGN fee you are paying is for the following:

-My TIME dedicated to personalizing/customizing the invitation OR party printable design you have selected

AND

-Your Limited Use of my exclusive invitation or party printable design for your personal one time needs

Once you APPROVE your proof and I have emailed you the HIGH RESOLUTION file, the order is considered closed and archived for a very short period of time. ★★ONLY 2 WEEKS★★

//// PREMIUM PRINTED INVITATIONS PACKAGES ////

Once you have approved your proof - your order goes into the print production queue immediately and therefore NO CANCELLATION or refunds are possible.

Frequently asked questions

How many invitations are included? - Choice of Personalized Printable Invitation (You Print) OR Printed Invitations Packages

If you are on a MOBILE DEVICE, please be sure to TAP on ITEM DETAILS to open up the lengthy and detailed description. Please be sure to read the listing description + details very carefully as all important information is there. You will notice a drop-down menu where you can choose from a personalized printable file only OR from various quantities of premium print packages.

If you select Personalized Printable Invitation then NO printed invitations are included - you are simply purchasing a flat fee for a print on your own invitation. I do NOT sell templates - all invitations will be personalized with your wording.

Can Any Invitation Design Be Used For Any Occasion?

Yes! Any invitation design in STARLITE (starwedd)'s Shop MAY be worded for any special occasion with your very own custom wording.

Just PLEASE use the sample wording as a GUIDELINE ONLY as far as Quantity is concerned so that you do not end up submitting too much wording that will not fit.

DETAILED FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS and ANSWERS

The POSTED Turnaround for First Proof is Shown on the Shop Avatar, Shop Announcement Box, Policies Section and Banner. There is ALSO a link provided on all Invitation Design listings asking customers to please READ the policies and posted turnaround for 1st proof PRIOR TO PURCHASE.
