What is a "digital file"?A digital file is a completed design that is emailed to you in a .jpg format. All of my party invitations and printables that I sell in my etsy shop are "digital files". Meaning, you email me the photos and wording you would like used on the card/invite you purchased and I will customize it to your liking and email you the final .jpg file for you to either print from home, or send to a local printer (Kinko's) or photo finisher (Target, Shutterfly..) of your choice. FYI, I highly recommend mpix.com for printing photo cards - the quality is AMAZING. You can also "Go Green" and email the file to your family and friends :) So, the most important thing to realize is that you are not receiving anything printed or in the mail. What you will receive is your completed file in .jpg format, which you cannot edit, but can freely print as many times as you would like. I DO offer professional printing for your 5x7 invitations and announcements so please see below if you are not interested in the DIY printable option. Pricing is as follows and includes white envelopes.
QTY 25 - $1.99 ea.
QTY 50 - $1.69 ea.

*Please note, digital files are for my party invitation/printables sold on only. Not Wedding orders - those will be printed for you with many different paper options :)
What kind of invitations do you create?
Everything and anything! From weddings to showers to birthday parties to baby announcements and everything in between! Contact me if you don't see exactly what you're looking for - I love custom orders! :)
How long does it take you to complete a wedding invitation order?
I cannot give you a specific time frame because it all depends on the season and volume of orders I have yet to complete. Please contact me and I can give you a better idea. Rush orders would be considered one month prior to you mailing your wedding invitations. There is a small convenience fee applied for those expedited orders. Typically, I will start working on your design right away and usually have a proof to you within a week or so.
Do you only work with local clients?
Of course not! I work closely through e-mail so we can easily communicate through the Internet instead of in person. I ship out orders all of the time!! :)
How much do your wedding invitations cost?
This is by far the most popular question. It all depends on what you envision and your budget. My invitation sets start anywhere from $4 and up - depending on how many cards/inserts you have. A basic "set" includes the main envelope, flat card invitation, response card and response card envelope with return address printing. I request for wedding invitations to be ordered in quantities of 25. Since everything is custom designed to fit your needs, please contact me and we will work together to design something that fits your style and budget. You have to keep in mind that certain papers and products are more expensive than others and different styles can be much more elaborate, for example, pocketfold style invitation sets start at $9 each. I will send you an e-mailed proof and after you have reviewed everything from the colors to the wording, I require a signed contract and payment in full at that time before printing begins.
If I purchase your water bottle wraps/labels, what do I print them on?You can print them on regular paper if you don't want them to be wet/submerged in water. Or you can buy a sticker paper from Office Max or Staples for easy printing and assembly. If you want the most professional look and a waterproof paper, you may want to look into having a local professional printer printing them for you (Kinko's, etc.) or purchase waterproof removeable paper from www.onlinelabels.com.
How do you make cupcake toppers?You punch out the party circles using a 2" scalloped circle punch. You can find the white craft sticks at Michael's or Hobby Lobby in the baking section. Attach the stick to the circle using a 1" round circle label and voila! :)
I'm not seeing exactly what I'm looking for...do you do custom work?Of course! I love doing custom work! Please email me to see what the current turnaround time is along with your theme, ideas, etc. to get started! :)
