Artful Beginnings is a small online boutique dedicated to creating unique, different, and memorable wedding and event invitations and coordinating accessories, all handmade in a small studio in Vermont.
We ask you that you approach our small shop in good faith. We work very hard to provide our handmade, customized items for your big event. We have thousands of positive reviews for our Etsy shops. Our items are not mainstream, but also not luxury goods. Our goal is to offer something that is different, that is handmade in the US, yet reasonably priced. That means the need for limited and precise communications and product options limited to what we have listed. If you don't feel the final product will be up to your standards even before receiving the item, if you need extensive communications, if you need a product we do not have listed, please reconsider before purchasing.
We work very hard to keep our prices reasonable. So please do not ask for extras - pictures of your finished product, materials, colors, sizes other than what we have listed, additional illustration added to the listed design (whether yours or ours), rushed production finished before the posted production schedule, or any other extras that are not already part of the listing.
Due to the current health concerns, we ask you to please only purchase items customized with a date if you are certain the event will take place. We cannot offer refunds or reprints just because an event was canceled due to government closures. Not printing a date on the invitations and providing that separately as a card or webpage notice might be one option to consider.
If you are unsure of the quality of our invitations, please note we do offer samples (custom and non-custom) for all the styles we sell. Please feel free to contact us if you do not see one listed and we'd be happy to set one up for you.
We reserve the right to refuse or cancel any orders.
