Did you elope? Couldn't invite everyone you wanted to the big day? An announcement is a great way to let them know you tied the knot. This ocean themed beach wedding announcement postcard includes waves and wording from a Hawaiian wedding, but the text is changeable and the waves removable if yours wasn't a seaside affair. The wording on the back lends itself to a reception honoring the new Mr. and Mrs., but again, can be simplified if you're not throwing a bash.

Absolutely! With all personalized items we provide a digital proof for your approval. This will be delivered to your Etsy inbox via the Conversations feature, usually within 1-2 business days of your order. We require your proof to be approved on time to keep your order moving toward production and shipment, so please be sure to stay on top of your Etsy convos. If you have Etsy notifications to your email turned off, please remember to check back in via your browser or app to check for your proof delivery. We'll attempt to reach you twice by Convo and once by email to obtain approval before going to production as is.
Please note that due to our order volume, we're unable to provide proofing services without an order in place.
Yes. For any customizations to the designs shown that are more than just changing names, dates, and the like, please email us ahead of time to be sure we can accommodate your request, especially if your request includes adding more text than what is shown on the sample, adding/removing/changing graphics or anything of that nature. We'll advise you at that time if we can accommodate your request complimentary or if extra design fees will apply.
FONT CHANGES - GUEST BOOKS: Guest Books are sold with the fonts shown. Font changes to things like guest books, etc. require additional typesetting and design time above and beyond standard personalization. A font change add-on fee ($5) is required to process a font change on a guest book order.
Yes! We love our international customers and ship worldwide. Please be sure to check both the processing and transit times on your chosen item to be fully aware of how long your item may take to ship if it's non-personalized, to make first once approved and then ship if it's personalized, and then also how long your chosen transit time will take. Especially if you are ordering for your wedding, you'll want to make sure your item will arrive on time. We offer a few different types of international shipping; full information is in our shop policies under our shipping policy for all options. Note that international customers are responsible for any customs/duty tax or related fees for importing items.
All of our listings include details on the processing times (the amount of time it takes to make your item once it's approved) for those items. You'll also get an estimate of the ship date displayed when checking out through the Etsy system, and this assigned date will also be on your order receipt. Orders that need to be approved before making will move fastest if you are able to approve your proof on time; client response time does factor in to how long it takes to receive your item. If proof approval is delayed, we may not be able to ship by the date assigned. We do offer expedited shipping options on the checkout screen. These expedited transit times take effect *after* your item has been made to order and shipped.
The window for cancellation is one hour post purchase. Once your proof is made and delivered to you, the order is no longer eligible for cancellation as work has then begun on your custom order. Also, once your proof is approved and put in to production we are not able to cancel it.
Personalized and/or custom, and made to order items are not eligible for return or refund. We are not able to take returns due to misspellings or grammatical errors in your approved proof. Your sign-off on your final proof approval indicates that you have reviewed and are accepting the wording and layout shown to be used for the final print.
In the rare event that a personalized or custom order arrives damaged, we will replace it free of charge.
Yes, if yours is a rush order we always appreciate a heads up first to be sure we can accommodate your request. We will advise you of our typical turnaround times on the item you wish to purchase and what type of shipping will be necessary for it to reach you by your desired date.
Yes, occasionally we can take on custom design for personalized items. Please contact us ahead of time to be sure we can accommodate your request and discuss your options so we can set up a custom order just for you. During the height of wedding season, we may be overbooked or unable to take custom orders due to time constraints. We are not able to accept custom orders for foil-printed notecards (wedding party cards).
