Item details

This listing is for a $20.00 deposit towards your final order. (This amount will be taken off your final total.)

HOW TO PLACE YOUR ORDER:

A. PURCHASE DEPOSIT - Purchase this $20 deposit listing by clicking “Add to Cart” and completing checkout. The deposit will go towards your order total. Please understand that this deposit is non-refundable once we have begun the design process.

B. SUBMIT order information - Please include a Note to Seller at checkout or send a private Etsy convo with the following information:

1. Number of envelopes in your mailing and size of envelope?

2. Amount of postage needed for your mailing? Please include the weight of your completed mailing suite and note any non-machineable characteristics and I’ll help you determine the postage needed as per the USPS guidelines.

3. Colors, style, location, home states and/or theme AND/OR a list of your favorite collections or individual vintage stamps that you have seen while browsing my shop or elsewhere online. (I have access to just about every stamp issued by USPS from the 1920’s to the 2000’s.)

4. The date you by which you would like to have the stamps in hand.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER YOU PLACE YOUR ORDER:

C. DESIGN PROCESS - Upon receiving your deposit and design information, I'll begin by curating a mix of postage that matches your theme and send you pictures within 2-3 business days. We'll work together to tweak the selections to get them to be just what you were wishing for. Three complimentary rounds of revisions are included with your package and we'll spend as much time necessary working with you to perfect your selections. Once we have a final design decision I'll create another listing or invoice for your RESERVED Custom Order for the total due, less this initial deposit fee.

D. SOURCING - Once we have your approval and final payment, sourcing will begin. It usually takes about a week for me to gather your stamps from my network of collectors. Please understand that some vintage stamps are rarer than others and are more of a challenge to gather, especially in larger quantities and may take longer than a week to collect. I will be sure to let you know if you have selected a stamp that may require a longer collection time frame. RUSH sourcing is available if needed. Please convo me for more details.

E. SHIPPING - All custom stamp orders ship via USPS Priority Mail with a tracking number. Shipping takes anywhere from 1-5 days domestically. Expedited shipping is available for a fee. Please convo me for more details.

** Before you order please note info on payment, shipping and other good things to know in my policies section **

Enjoy!


FAQs

VerdeStudio is my part-time job, coming in second to my full time efforts as a wife and mother. I am generally in the studio Monday-Friday and often on Saturdays but almost never on Sunday. If I am going to be away from the studio for more than a day or two I'll be sure to post an announcement and let you know when I'll be back. I love what I do and I can't stay away for long!

PA residents - sales tax will be calculated at 6% and automatically added to your total.
