USA ORDERS ONLY:
1. Standard Shipping: USPS FIRST CLASS (default). Can choose upgraded shipping on the check-out screen when ordering to include either USPS Priority Mail or USPS Priority EXPRESS.
2. Upgraded Shipping:
a) USPS PRIORITY MAIL. Includes insurance and tracking plus the AVERAGE post office turn-around time is 2-3 days per THEIR GUIDELINES.

1. Current production turn around times (the time from when you place your order until it leaves my shop) still apply, even when upgraded shipping is purchased. Upgraded shipping ONLY applies to USPS turnaround time, and is not reflective of the time it takes to fulfill your order.
2. I don't work for THE POST OFFICE and have no control over their turnaround time. Priority Shipping usually takes 2-3 days after I create and ship the item but that is not a hard and fast rule.
3. I am not responsible for lost or damaged packages once the package leaves my shop. The best way to protect yourself is choose USPS PRIORITY MAIL which provides insurance and tracking.
4. If your package is lost or damaged your issue is with the POSTAL SERVICE - NOT ME. I appreciate it if you remember this before leaving reviews. I AM responsible for MY SERVICE. The POSTAL SERVICE is responsible for THEIR SERVICE. Please don't hold me responsible for what they do or fail to do. I have yet to have a product that was lost or damaged but just in case--please note this.

2. SHIPPING CHARGE REFUNDS: If you're charged more than $5 USD over the actual cost of shipping you will be refunded the difference.
3. DELIVERY can take anywhere from 2-6 weeks NORMALLY (just an estimate - not a guarantee) and this time frame is completely out of my control. Please keep this in mind when placing your order.
4. USPS FIRST CLASS INTERNATIONAL MAIL is what I use to ship. You do have the option on the check-out screen to upgrade to USPS INTERNATIONAL PRIORITY or USPS INTERNATIONAL EXPRESS.
5. TRACKING - There's no way of tracking international packages once they leave US territory.
6. CUSTOMS FEES-Import duties, taxes and other fees are NOT included in my shipping prices and are the buyer's responsibility. These charges are usually collected when you either pick up your package or when it's delivered to you. For legal reasons, we will NOT mark packages as "gifts" to avoid fees. It is the customer's responsibility to know their country's customs fees practices.
7. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient; I have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be.
8. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for further information. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond the original delivery estimates.
9. If your package is lost or damaged your issue is with the POSTAL SERVICE - NOT ME. I appreciate it if you remember this before leaving reviews. I AM responsible for MY SERVICE. The POSTAL SERVICE is responsible for THEIR SERVICE.

MORE DETAILED INFO ABOUT PURCHASES:
1. Descriptions, specifications, photos and policies are listed in my shop so you know exactly what you're ordering.
2. Computer screens vary so there may be some variance in images from computer to computer.
3. The nature and beauty of handmade means there may be a slight difference from item to item.
4. Because my creations are handmade by me it takes a lot of time, money and effort to do what I do.
*I CANNOT REPLACE WHAT THE POST OFFICE LOSES OR DAMAGES. Please don't hold me responsible for them. I do not work for nor am I associated with the US Postal Service or any other postal service.
If you are concerned about item being lost in shipping please upgrade shipping to include insurance if it doesn't. That way you will not be out the money spent on the order in the event the post office does lose it.
Once I have created and shipped an order I have earned the money I have been paid and it would be unfair to expect me to pay for the post office's mistake. I would suggest upgrading shipping to include insurance if this is a concern.
***PLEASE DOUBLE CHECK NAMES, INITIALS FOR MONOGRAMS, ETC WHEN ORDERING AS WELL AS THE ADDRESS PAYPAL, ETSY AND I ALL HAVE FOR YOU.***
If I misspell or make any error I will make it right and bear the cost to do so. I will refer back to the order you submitted for verification.
If it is not my misspell or other error then I cannot replace for free or refund the order. Please understand this is a business and I have to pay for supplies, materials and equipment as well as investing my time. While I make every effort to be fair, I ask you to do the same. On that note please double check the orders you submit.
If you are dissatisfied with me in any way PLEASE convo me so we can see how I may be able to rectify that.
BOTTOM LINE? I want to provide excellent customer service, while maintaining my business, and give you a reason to leave a positive review plus be a repeat customer. Please remember -- I am responsible for the product I create and for shipping it out in a timely manner BUT I am not responsible for the postal service -- whether domestic or international.

SOMETHING YOU WANT THAT YOU DON'T SEE?
CONTACT ME: Hopefully I can meet your request. If you see a design you like but want to change out the colors of thread let me know. I can also add other text--cute saying, name, quotes, scripture, etc.
BECAUSE ITEMS ARE HANDMADE: All fabrics and items may not be identical from order to order. Because of that and the fact that computer screens also can contribute to color variances, there may be slight differences.

They are ALL (square, diagonal orientation and heart shaped) measured from one side of patch to the other side of patch at it's widest point - looking at it on the tie. This way you know if your tie is wide enough for the patch you're ordering.
That means a SQUARE patch measuring 2.5" tall x 2.5" wide, sitting squarely on a tie is measured differently than a diagonal patch. The square patch IS 2.5" WIDE.
The diagonal patch (pointed at the top and the bottom) is wider in the middle than it is near the bottom and the top. So to have 2.5" at its widest point it is about 2'x2'x2'x2" around the patch, so the ACTUAL WIDTH of the patch will be 2.5" across and fit on a tie 2.5" wide.
Heart-shaped patch is 2.25" wide at its widest.
Depends on many variables. I normally get orders done within one day (sometimes 2) of receiving order. Then I mail.
The good and bad about it? I ship quick but it also means I don't accept cancellations after 1 hour of receiving a personalized order.
FIRST CLASS - 3-5 days estimate. Rarely could take up to 2 weeks.
PRIORITY - 2-3 days estimate . Again could take more.
EXPRESS - 1-2 days . Only method USPS guarantees date of.
USPS International First Class Mail which may take 2 to 6 weeks.
USPS International PRIORITY also offered.
***Note: These are delivery estimates, NOT guarantees. My standard shipping method is FIRST CLASS. You can upgrade to other options at check-out.
I don't mind doing that but I only send them if you request them. Why? It slows down the process and most of my customers are in a hurry with wedding deadlines (and I don't work week-ends).
I guarantee my work and in the event I do make an error, it will be remade and shipped free of charge for you asap.
That is one reason I request your phone # when you order so I can text in the event there is a question about your order. Also I could text a photo proof quicker than email or convos.
