Thank you for stopping by!

Welcome to In A Nutshell! Check out my Shop Video and watch how I handdraw a greeting card design on Procreate in hyperlapse.

Handcrafted greeting cards for those with a sense of humor.

I absolutely love designing cards. Almost all of the cards you see in my shop were originally made for someone I know and care about, so they are all made with love, thought, and effort. I sincerely thank you for stopping by and taking the time to peruse. Hope you find something you like!

RETURNS & EXCHANGES: I gladly accept returns, exchanges, and cancellations.
If you're unhappy with your order, I'll be happy to issue you a refund once the item/items have been returned to us in a sellable condition. Buyer is responsible for all shipping charges. 

Contact me within 14 days of delivery. Ship items back to me within 30 days of delivery. Request a cancellation within 12 hours of purchase.

There are NO REFUNDS/EXCHANGES/CREDITS for sales of digital items. All monitors are different, thus monitor colors vary greatly. Colors may appear different in person vs what you see on screen.

I'm not responsible for incorrect shipping address inputted at checkout. I won't be reshipping orders due to errors made during the checkout process. If you need me to reship your order, please purchase another round of shipping and provide a valid shipping address.

If you've changed your mind, don't want your item, no longer need it, and to avoid additional USPS charges for returns, simply write REFUSED-RETURN TO SENDER on the unopened package and pop it back in the mailbox.
Payment
Payments due at time of order. Payments must be received before your order can be fulfilled.

Cancel your order for a full refund within 12 hours of purchase.
Delivery
PROCESSING TIME: Current processing time is 1 business day.

PROCESSING TIME & SHIPPING TIME are not the same. Processing time is the time it takes me to print, pack, prepare your order for shipping, and drop your package off at post office. SHIPPING TIME is the time it takes for the post office to deliver your package to you.

PACKING & SHIPPING: Single greeting cards are shipped in a clear sleeve + cardboard on both sides to prevent accidental bending via USPS First Class Mail, (or Priority Mail, depending on which you choose). 6+ card sets are packed with protective chipboards in a bubble mailer to prevent accidental bending.

SHIPPING METHOD: I use USPS to ship, Monday-Friday. Orders placed over the weekend will be fulfilled the following Monday. Tracking info is included for all domestic orders. Tracking for International Orders stops once the parcel leaves USA and nearly impossible to track, so Canada orders are less expensive to ship and shipped with stamps (no tracking).

Left it last minute? Choose Priority Mail shipping at checkout.

USA SHIPPING TIMES once out for delivery is 2-5 business days.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING TIMES once out for delivery is 1-3 weeks. I've seen parcels delivered in 4 weeks when held up in customs.

I'll do my best to meet this shipping estimate, but cannot guarantee them because the packages are out of my hands and control once they are out for delivery. Actual delivery time will depend on the shipping method you choose.

I can't be held responsible for incorrectly provided addresses. In the event your package is returned due to an incorrectly provided address, I'll be unable to reship the item/s until a second shipping charge is provided. If you choose to not pay the second shipping charge, I'll be happy to cancel the sale and refund you the purchase price (minus the initial shipping charge). I can’t be held responsible for late packages due to weather conditions or delays with the USPS. Please remember that shipping around any holiday can be very unpredictable. Priority Upgrades are recommended to ensure faster delivery.

DIGITAL DOWNLOADS: All digital items will be available for download from Etsy shortly after your payment is received. 

Customer satisfaction is very important to me and I take it very seriously. If you have any questions or issues about your order at any time, contact the shop via Etsy messaging. I usually respond within 24 hours.

Frequently asked questions
Wholesale availability

Yes! I happily accept wholesale orders at inanutshellstudio.faire.com

Custom and personalized orders

Due to high order volume, I am not able to create custom cards nor able to print customizations to the inside of cards at this time (peak holiday season). Any requests will not be fulfilled. Thanks for your understanding!

How long does shipping take?

I currently process orders within 24 hours. For USA, it takes USPS anywhere from 2-5 business days to deliver it to you, depending on your location and the shipping method you choose at checkout. Upgrade to Priority Mail for faster shipping times by USPS. If you prefer FedEx, choose the FedEx option at checkout. It takes 4 days for FedEx to deliver.

I checked tracking on my order and the status hasn't changed. What's going on?

It can take USPS up to 24 hours to update tracking. Tracking on the usps.com website is usually more up-to-date than Etsy, so you may want to check there. Go to https://www.usps.com/ then paste your tracking number into the Search A Tracking Number box. Sometimes USPS doesn't scan packages. It can take USPS up to 5 business days to deliver once out for delivery. If after 5 business days (Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays are NOT business days) your order still hasn't arrived, please contact me.

Can you write a note inside and ship the card directly to the recipient?

Yes, by purchasing this listing: https://www.etsy.com/InANutshellStudio/listing/788004743/ or search "shipped directly to recipient" within my shop.

COUPON CODES: I have items in my cart but the discount isn't being applied.

You have to enter the coupon code into the COUPON CODE FIELD at cart/checkout in order for the discount to be applied. Etsy does not automatically apply discounts.

I need a card by a certain date. Will it get here in time?

I'm currently shipping out orders received today within 1 business day. Standard shipping can take USPS 2-5 business days to deliver to you. Choose Priority Mail shipping at checkout for delivery in 1-3 business days. For better shipping estimates, go to https://m.usps.com/m/PricesCalculate and enter your Ship To zip code. My Ship From zip code is 91354. Enter "Package" for shipping type and "3 oz" for weight. It should tell you the Priority Mail delivery date. Just holler if you need help with this.

Do you ship internationally?

I'm currently shipping to select countries by request due to parcels getting lost in the mail.

A card I want is out of stock. Any idea when you’ll be restocking it?

Out-of-stock items are usually restocked within a day or two.

I ordered wrapping paper but only the greeting cards came. What's going on?

Wrapping paper ships at the same time as greeting cards, but it's shipped separately. You'll find "Package #2" in the order with the wrapping paper's separate tracking #. For reasons unknown to me, wrapping paper typically arrives 1-2 business days later than the greeting cards. I speculate that it's because of its odd shape (shipped in a rigid 20"x2" long cylindrical tube). If you have checked tracking and it appears to be stuck in limbo or tracking has not progressed, please message me immediately. Thanks for your patience!
