Frequently asked questions

What does "PIY" stand for?

Great question! "PIY" stands for "Print it Yourself". When The PIY Life started we we're strictly digital files. Now we have expanded to offer digital & printed products!

I need a custom, but can you show me what it looks like before I pay?

No. Unfortunately due to the custom name of our products payment must be received before we start any design work or send any files.

Your payment, for digital orders especially, is paying for our time as graphic designers. However we do try to keep our prices low to make great designs affordable for our customers!

When can I expect my CUSTOM digital order?

All of our CUSTOM digital orders are sent within 24-72 hours to the email registered with your etsy account. If you need something sooner we do have rush options when available.

Please see shop announcements for possible delays, such as, vacation, emergencies, natural disasters, or life.

Do I get a proof for my CUSTOM printed order? If so, when?

We do send proofs for all of our printed CUSTOM products and require that you look over and confirm everything is correct on the item PRIOR to sending it off to the printer.

You will usually receive your proof within 24-48 hours, but please see shop announcements for possible delays, such as, vacation, emergencies, natural disasters, or life.

When do you send orders to the printer? I changed my mind can I cancel?

We are always sending orders to the printer!

If you order a non-custom item (i.e. mugs, art prints with no customization, etc) you have 1 hour to cancel your order. If you do not cancel within 1 hour your order will be sent to the printer. Due to the fact that most of our items are custom and printed on demand we cannot offer refunds. But will fix any mistake that was made on our, or the printers part.

If you order a custom invitation, or art, your item will be sent to the printer upon confirmation of a correct proof. No orders may be cancelled after proofing, and no refunds will be given due to the custom nature.

Free Shipping and Envelopes?

Yes you read that right! All of our invitations comes with free envelopes and shipping within the United States!

Custom and personalized orders

Generally, we recommend 2-3 weeks (prior to the date that you need to HAND OUT invitations) for U.S. orders, and up to 8 weeks for other countries (due to possible customs delays).

What do you mean "review my invitation"?

We request that all of our customers please review their invitation prior to printing at home or proofing for us to print to insure that everything is spelled correctly, and dates and times are correct.

Sometimes when typing in the details by the customer, or the designer, things gets mixed up and mistakes do happen.

We cannot offer refunds for any orders printed with mistakes.

Can I sell the digital or printed files?

In some instances our items may be used for profit. Please see the following policies.

All printable party supplies and invitations are protected by copyright and is property of The PIY Life. All logos/images are copyright of their respectful owners.

Commercial use is limited to party planners. You may print the product and use it ONCE per customer. You must purchase a new file should you need to use it for another customer. You may not give the digital file to your customer or resell the digital files.

The sale of any item does NOT transfer copyright. The digital files and finished products must NOT be re-sold, shared, given away, mass produced, altered or be made available to download online.

What if I ordered the wrong size shirt?

Unfortunately we cannot accept any returns due to sizing issues. Please measure twice and order once. Sizing charts are included on EVERY listing where applicable. When in doubt order one size larger!
