{Why we are different}

We are a semi-custom paper goods store.  What makes us different from other stationery companies is that we partner with other talented artists and create fabulous designs in styles suited for everyone!  Our designs are created from our own artwork and/or those of our licensed partners which gives us full design control...colors, fonts and layout can typically be adjusted without any extra fees!  We provide super affordable semi custom goods, now how many companies can say that?

S/H will be as if you ordered all at one time. As long as we haven't prepped your order for shipping, you're good to go! (valid on items shipping directly from our studio).

Made to Order

Most products you'll find here are made to order, meaning it is created just for you once you place your order! Because of this, there may be slight variations from the samples you see on screen simply due to font sizes, text placement and such. The sample designs I've listed throughout the site have been implemented to give you the best idea of how your final product will look. Don't worry, I know you'll love it!

Colors On Screen

One of the hardest things to do is to ensure how you are viewing colors on your monitor and how it resembles the actual product. Due to the many differences between monitors and settings, the printed product may differ from how you are viewing it.

Communication is Key

To ensure that you receive all email communication in a timely manner, please add our email to your address book: salesATatouchofwhimsyDOTcom (yes, replace the at and dot for the right characters :) You should also keep en eye on your bulk/spam folder too, just in case. We may need to contact you to discuss your order.


Some note card designs have the option of upgrading to colored envelopes at no additional cost! For these products, I will only offer envie colors that coordinate with the design so you'll never have to worry about picking the wrong color. Some color offerings may change as manufacturers may change shades, etc. but I will make sure it always coordinates!

Packaging & Logos

All orders are professionally packaged with a whimsical touch! I often change the style of packaging I use just because I like to change things up a bit. Even if you're purchasing for yourself, you should feel like you're buying yourself something special (you are after all) but you'll always be pleased with the little touch of whimsy (pun intended!) that our packaging has. Our website address is imprinted w/small text on the reverse side of some of our paper goods (note cards, recipe cards, calling cards, mommy cards, invites/announcements).

Coupons & Discounts

Despite having fabulous prices, we too like a great deal! We're happy to send out coupons to newsletter subscribers and blog readers, as well as, having special sales. Should you have a coupon to use on our site, all you need to do is enter the code in the discount spot provided during checkout and click redeem. Your discount will automatically be applied towards applicable items. See coupon for details. We do limit one coupon per order please. If you're shopping as part of an online party and would like to use your party coupon along with a sale, no problem! Contact your hostess for instructions.

Have a gift voucher? These are different from 'coupons' and do not apply towards s/h. To redeem, follow the instructions given in the email provided OR simply enter the code in the coupon box at checkout. This deposits the voucher into your account.
