𝗣𝗥𝗢𝗗𝗨𝗖𝗧𝗜𝗢𝗡 𝗧𝗜𝗠𝗘: Book printing & production takes 6-7 business days. 𝗜𝗳 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗱𝗼 𝗻𝗼𝘁 𝗮𝗱𝗱 𝗮 𝗽𝗿𝗼𝗼𝗳 𝗽𝗮𝗰𝗸𝗮𝗴𝗲, your order will go straight to print after ordering, and ship out 6-7 business days later. 𝗜𝗳 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗮𝗱𝗱 𝗮 𝗽𝗿𝗼𝗼𝗳 𝗽𝗮𝗰𝗸𝗮𝗴𝗲, this production time will start the business day after we receive proof approval. Our production process individually prints and binds your guest book to order, one at a time, during that 6-7 business day period. After production is complete, your order will ship out and transit time in the mail is determined by the shipping carrier and speed you select at checkout. Please note that 𝒃𝒖𝒔𝒊𝒏𝒆𝒔𝒔 𝒅𝒂𝒚𝒔 𝒅𝒐 𝒏𝒐𝒕 𝒊𝒏𝒄𝒍𝒖𝒅𝒆 𝒘𝒆𝒆𝒌𝒆𝒏𝒅𝒔, so keep these timelines in mind when ordering for your wedding day. Expedited shipping is available at checkout with 2-Day and overnight options, but this does not affect the 6-7 business day production time and only affects the speed your order travels AFTER it is made to order. Please let us know your absolute need-by date in the “notes to seller” along with your customization so that we can best serve you. We can help with recommendations for shipping speed.
𝗢𝗣𝗧𝗜𝗢𝗡𝗔𝗟 𝗣𝗥𝗢𝗢𝗙𝗦: As many of our customers are on tight deadlines for events, we have streamlined our process to make proofing optional. This saves time for those clients that want the fastest service. Again, proofing services are 𝗼𝗽𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝗮𝗹; you must choose to add a proof package in the drop-down menu and remit the additional cost to receive a proof package with your order. If you do not choose to add a proof, your order will go straight to production 𝒘𝒊𝒕𝒉 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒅𝒆𝒔𝒊𝒈𝒏 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒍𝒂𝒚𝒐𝒖𝒕 𝒂𝒔 𝒔𝒉𝒐𝒘𝒏 𝒊𝒏 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒇𝒊𝒓𝒔𝒕 𝒍𝒊𝒔𝒕𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒑𝒉𝒐𝒕𝒐, and no proof will be provided. If you do not add a proof, you are giving us permission to use our discretion to create and design your book according to our layout shown and what we think looks best with your names and/or content – including upper/lower casing, punctuation, and other design details and factors to create a beautiful final product.
Optional proofs, if added, are delivered to your EMAIL on file and are of the item AS SHOWN in the photos. Please make sure your email address on your account is current for fastest service. We will also send a duplicate notice that your proof is ready to your Etsy inbox via the Etsy Messages feature. 𝗬𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗼𝗿𝗱𝗲𝗿 𝘄𝗶𝗹𝗹 𝗯𝗲 𝗽𝗿𝗼𝗼𝗳𝗲𝗱 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗱𝗲𝘀𝗶𝗴𝗻 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗳𝗼𝗻𝘁𝘀 𝘀𝗵𝗼𝘄𝗻 𝙞𝙣 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙛𝙞𝙧𝙨𝙩 𝙡𝙞𝙨𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙥𝙝𝙤𝙩𝙤. The optional proofing package includes an initial proof with the original design and layout shown, and 𝘂𝗽 𝘁𝗼 𝘁𝘄𝗼 𝘀𝗶𝗺𝗽𝗹𝗲 𝘁𝗲𝘅𝘁 𝗼𝗿 𝗱𝗲𝘀𝗶𝗴𝗻 𝗿𝗲𝘃𝗶𝘀𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀 such as spelling, color, or font changes. Complex changes, graphics, and/or additional rounds of proofing may require additional fees, which will be quoted on a custom basis. Please also note, our collage of client photos is a representation of our brand and products in general and is 𝗻𝗼𝘁 𝗮 𝗳𝗼𝗻𝘁/𝗱𝗲𝘀𝗶𝗴𝗻 𝘀𝗲𝗹𝗲𝗰𝘁𝗼𝗿.
Proofs, if added, are usually ready 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 email and Etsy messages. If you have Etsy notifications to your email turned off, or an out-of-date email address, you may experience difficulty and delays in approving your order for production, however we cannot be responsible for this and we will not cancel an order due to lack of communication from you delaying your proofing process. Please remember to be checking for your proof by email to approve it. 𝗣𝗥𝗢𝗢𝗙 𝗛𝗢𝗟𝗗 𝗣𝗢𝗟𝗜𝗖𝗬: We will hold a proof (or revision) for 72 hours once we’ve sent it out, before sending it to print manually. Please be prepared to approve your orderor make any necessary changes within 72 hours of receiving the proof or revision. We send an initial proof and daily reminders by email until you approve the order, or 72 business hours (M-F), whichever comes first. We will also send a separate Etsy message to let you know the proof access is available for review. 𝗜𝗳 𝘄𝗲 𝗱𝗼 𝗻𝗼𝘁 𝗵𝗲𝗮𝗿 𝗳𝗿𝗼𝗺 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗽𝗿𝗼𝗼𝗳 𝗵𝗼𝗹𝗱 𝘁𝗶𝗺𝗲 𝗳𝗿𝗮𝗺𝗲, 𝘄𝗲 𝘄𝗶𝗹𝗹 𝗺𝗼𝘃𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗼𝗿𝗱𝗲𝗿 𝘁𝗼 𝗽𝗿𝗼𝗱𝘂𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗺𝗮𝗻𝘂𝗮𝗹𝗹𝘆. If your approval is delayed, it will mean your shipment date will be delayed or rescheduled. You’ll be notified via Etsy automatically if this occurs.
𝗥𝗨𝗦𝗛 𝗢𝗣𝗧𝗜𝗢𝗡𝗦: Rush options are limited to specific size and page types, and we may not be able to accommodate every rush request. Rush orders incur additional charges for production and shipping. Please contact us *prior* to ordering to be sure we can accommodate your rush request and we will discuss options with you.
𝗜𝗡𝗧𝗘𝗥𝗡𝗔𝗧𝗜𝗢𝗡𝗔𝗟 𝗕𝗨𝗬𝗘𝗥𝗦: Standard shipping for international orders is USPS First Class International Package services. Upgraded shipping is available for an additional cost. First Class can take from about 10 days in the mail to several weeks depending on your location. Most major metropolitan areas (Canada, UK, France, Australia, etc.) are on the shorter end, and more remote areas are on the longer end. These transit times are estimates only, and the transit time of your package may vary and is not guaranteed. First Class International shipping is 𝗻𝗼𝘁 𝗶𝗻𝘀𝘂𝗿𝗲𝗱 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗺𝗮𝘆 𝗻𝗼𝘁 𝗯𝗲 𝗳𝘂𝗹𝗹𝘆 𝘁𝗿𝗮𝗰𝗸𝗮𝗯𝗹𝗲. If you would like insurance and full tracking on your package, 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗺𝘂𝘀𝘁 𝘂𝗽𝗴𝗿𝗮𝗱𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝘀𝗵𝗶𝗽𝗽𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘀𝗲𝗿𝘃𝗶𝗰𝗲. **Please note** unfortunately there are no guarantees for time in customs, etc. Please plan ahead and order with plenty of time to receive your book in time for your event, and be sure to take in to account our production period *before* shipping as this adds to your total turnaround time before the book is at your door. Because our process is custom, and if you add a proof package we will be relying on your response time as well (and in the case of international orders, overseas shipping and customs), we cannot guarantee arrival of your book by your event date, and cannot refund/accept returns for orders that do not arrive by your event date. If you do not upgrade your shipping, we may not be able to assist in locating your package once it leaves the US.
𝐓𝐈𝐏𝐒 & 𝐓𝐑𝐈𝐂𝐊𝐒:
◾ Our vertical casebound books and journals do not have a lay-flat binding. They are casebound style, like a typical hardcover library book.
◾ The matte laminate should wipe clean with a soft cloth.
❤ 𝗔 𝗻𝗼𝘁𝗲 𝗮𝗯𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝘂𝘀𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗮 𝗰𝗮𝘀𝗲𝗯𝗼𝘂𝗻𝗱 𝗯𝗼𝗼𝗸 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝗽𝗵𝗼𝘁𝗼𝘀: We don’t generally recommend adding photos to the 5×7, as it is too small. Depending on photo size, for better results the 8×10 typically accommodates 20-30 photos. These are not hard and fast rules since there are so many sizes/types of photos available today, but a general guideline to assist in choosing book size. We cannot guarantee any specific photo amount per book. The cover may not close as flat with photos added as it does without, which is the case with any casebound book with a fixed spine. Again these are guidelines only, and your results with photos may vary depending on the size and thickness of your photos and how you adhere them. In all cases, we recommend not using as many photos as the sheet count to prevent overstuffing, and low profile adhesive (not photo corners) as the casebound book does not expand with added content.
