    Frequently Asked Questions

    Wholesale availability

    Wholesale pricing is available on certain ribbons. Please contact me.

    Combined shipping for multiple orders

    YES! I always combine orders and refund excess shipping - no need to contact me - I do it automatically.

    Can you make me a special ribbon?

    Minimum orders for jacquard ribbon quantities start at 1000yds. I can certainly assist with this process but this is only for serious inquires. NO ONE will make you a personal jacquard ribbon for just a few yards. Contact me with any questions.

    Do you have faster shipping services?

    I offer shipping upgrade options. You can make your selection from your cart. Upgrades include a handling fee for my time and are NOT REFUNDABLE if you choose to return an item.

    My order is showing "Pre-Transit" - what does that mean?

    The postal service is dealing with issues regarding personnel shortages and high volumes of mail.
    Until the packages are collected and scanned, "Pre-transit" means your package is somewhere waiting to move. Patience over delivery times is crucial - I believe everyone is doing their very best.

    How fast do you ship out orders?

    Most ship on the next business day but I try to ship ASAP which means sometimes they go out the same day. I leave myself an extra day as life can get in the way of living and many orders take time.

    Who pays return shipping if I change my mind?

    Despite Etsy's policy that the buyer pays return shipping (this is a policy I am unable to change in my shop)
    The reason for the return is not important - if you don't love it then I want it back. Someone else can use it! Request a return and a pre-paid label will be issued. It's a simple, fast & easy process for the buyer. NOTE: Shipping upgrades are not refundable.

    These were beautiful. The only problem was they only go from 1-9 not 1-25 like you would expect for typical advent calendar numbers. After ordering these I ended up purchasing additional numbers from another shop.

    These will be fun to put together in an advent calendar! They arrived timely and were well packaged. Thank You!
