Wonderful experience - highly recommend!
Life is full of reasons to celebrate!
My shop's story truly began when I became a mom. I had almost 10 years of professional graphic design experience and was on maternity leave when I started drawing and designing. In those first months of my son's life I experienced such a wholesome connectivity to life and love. It would have been futile to ignore the ignited creativity that burned within me to be expressed.
I started by designing a fabric for Spoonflower.com and quickly found my own artistic style drawing cutesy, whimsical characters that appealed to children.
This gave birth to Saraink.net and an Etsy store where I sell commercial clip art designs and digital papers. Whirligigs Party Co. began as a collaboration between my sisters and I over Christmas break 2011. My sister, Katie, had been working up her own pastry cake shop. And my sister, Angie, having the most and eldest children among us, had lots of kids' party experiences and ideas. The party industry was an exciting and natural fit for our collective talents. Sadly at first, but in hindsight with much blessing, the family collaboration didn't last long. We've all gone on to do our own beautiful life's work, and still enjoy working together on occasion.
My story is still unraveling with every life event and creative inspiration. Most of the parties in my shop have come from my own life's celebrations, or those of my family members. There never seems to be an end of things to celebrate, and that's a very awesome thing!! I've learned so very much and am so grateful to the mentors, family and Etsy community that has supported and encouraged me endlessly.
There's such an excitement around planning an event! And I love hearing from party-throwers around the globe. It always warms my heart when an order comes and I read WHO IS having a birthday and HOW OLD they will be!! Each milestone, each birth, each graduation... It's all been a great time and I look forward to many more years … and parties, to come!
Owner of Katie's Cake Creations, my sister Katie helped found Whirligigs, and design the Spooky Halloween collection!

Refunds and Exchanges
Please contact me if you are not completely satisfied with your order and I will do what I can to make it right. INSTANT DOWNLOAD PURCHASES ARE NOT REFUNDABLE DUE TO THE DIGITAL NATURE OF THE PRODUCT. Customized items are not 100% refundable if work has already commenced.
♥ ABOUT COLOR ON PRINTABLE FILES ♥
Various monitor settings, printer settings, paper selection and lighting will effect how something appears printed, versus on screen. So unfortunately there is no guarantee the color you see on your computer monitor is how it will appear on paper. If color is important to you, please contact me about receiving color proofs you can test print on the printer and paper you will be using.
♥ PROOFING ♥
Orders with a required proof will not be printed until the proof has been approved. For proofed orders, production turnaround time begins after the proof approval.

I often begin production right away, so it is appreciated that you contact me as soon as you have a change or cancellation. Purchases may not be 100% refundable if work has already commenced.

Frequently asked questions
What paper should I print on?
Your printable PDFs are designed for color printing on 8-½” x 11” paper. Your JPG files are set up for printing on pre-cut 4”x6” or 5”x7” paper.
If printing at home, I recommend a white card stock (60 lb.) for printing most of your party decorations. For best results, select paper designed for your printer type - inkjet or laser. That’s really important, because most desktop printers designed for home printing, will jam or wear out faster if a thick card stock is used, so check your printer handbook to determine what thickness (often referred to as gsm) of paper your printer can take.
When printing at a professional printer, I recommend printing party decorations on an 60 lb.-80 lb. card stock and invitations on a 100-110 lb. card stock.
How do I access the download I purchased?
Login to your Etsy account and go to "Purchases & Reviews" under Your Account options. Locate your purchase from Whirligigs Party Co., and select the blue button "Download Files". That will take you to the download screen, and there is another button on the left to "Download" the files.

Files downloaded from the internet often default to your “downloads” folder.
On a PC or Windows computer, you can find your Downloads folder by going to the Start Menu ---> My Computer. You will see the Downloads folder on the far-left pane.

Search results appear as soon as you start typing in the search box.

Can I purchase printable files from a group individually?
Yes. If you'd like to order an item from a printable party collection or grouping individually, please contact me. Most individual printable party files are $4 each - without customization. And $8 each - with customization.
Can I customize the wording myself?
No, the file you will receive is un-editable. Files are also copyrighted by Whirligigs Party Co. and cannot be changed or altered once received under copyright law.
I'm happy to customize wording on any item FOR YOU. Wording customization may be included in the price of the item, so be sure to read the item description to find out if an item is customized. Or visit the "Add-0n Upgrades" Section to "Customize An Item" as an additional purchase.
How do I submit my custom wording?
When you go to check out there is a box that says "note to seller" where you can type in your wording. You can also let me know your customization via Etsy conversation or you can email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Will I receive a proof?
For Digital Files: No. I want you to be able to print as soon as you get your files, so I do not send a proof. Instead, you will receive high resolution files ready for printing. If you need any changes, however, I'm happy to make them at no additional cost.
For Custom Printing: Yes. I send a digital proof, unless the listing states no proof will be sent. Proof approval is required before continued production. Digital proofs are delivered within 36 hours of all information and payment received to your Etsy conversation inbox, unless you specify an email address you’d like me to send the proof to.
Due to the digital nature of my business, I do not offer a proof without an order in place.
