FAQ

Why Tara's Designs?

Because you get to work with me and I am here for YOU! When it comes to customer service and getting you a product you can be proud of, trusting a small business is a great choice.

Isn't custom design expensive?

You may think that, but it doesn't have to be. To me, custom means getting what you want! I am here to change every font, design color, wording, and more until you are 100% satisfied with your design.

Why not order a design online?

Ordering online may appear to be the easier route, but how much can you really customize? And do you have one person to contact each time you have a question? Probably not. But with Tara's Designs, you have ME, and I am here and ready to respond to your inquiries every day!

Where are you located?

I am located in Omaha, Nebraska ... but don't let that stop you if you don't live here! I've designed for clients all over the United States. If we're not able to meet in person we can work via email to swap ideas and come up with exactly what YOU want!

What do you design?

I can design:

  • Weddings: save the dates, invitations, programs, menus, place/escort cards, signs, thank you cards, and more!

  • Bridal Shower Invitations

  • Bachelor/Bachelorette Party Invitations

  • Baby Shower Invitations

  • Baby Announcements

  • Birthday Party Invitations (For all ages, because you're never too old to celebrate your birthday!)

  • Graduation Party Invitations

  • Retirement Party Invitations

  • Anniversary Party Invitations

  • Holiday Cards

  • And any other event you can think of!

What is the process for ordering from you?

We'll start with a consultation (It's FREE!): Let’s meet! I want to hear about the event from where it's being held, the style and colors you've chosen to work with, and the fonts you envision incorporating into your invitations and other paper goods! If we are meeting about wedding paper goods design, please plan to meet for at least 30 minutes to 1 hour as we will discuss all of the different pieces you can include in your wedding invitation suite (invite, details card, rsvp card, belly band, emblem card, pocket, etc.) as well as items for your wedding day (programs, table numbers, escort/place cards, menus, signs, etc.).

Quote: After the initial consultation, I will provide you with a quote. There is no commitment to purchase anything quoted. Once you’ve made your decision to work with Tara’s Designs, please let me know so I can send you a design contract to sign. A payment plan will be discussed when you receive your contract.

Design: Once your contract is signed and returned to me with payment I can get started! Don't forget to submit your wording for each piece. This guarantees I have all of the details spelled right and in the order you want them to be listed. I will create a design for you based on the information we discussed in the consultation. From there I’ll make the necessary (unlimited) changes until I create the PERFECT event paper goods for you.

Printing: I can provide you a quote for printing or I can provide you a PDF of the final file(s) and you can print wherever you want. I would recommend working with me to have these printed as I can have more control over final colors of your print files to ensure they are what you want. I do ask that if you print anything that I have designed for you, that you please send me a copy of everything so that I have it for my portfolio.

Payment: I currently accept payment via PayPal (bank account withdrawal or credit card - however you have your account setup), check, or cash.

Delivery/Shipping: If you are a local customer, I will be in touch when I have everything all packaged up and ready to deliver to you! If you are not a local customer, shipping is available upon request for an additional fee. Shipping charges vary based on the size and weight of the box needed to ship your item(s) and will be added to the final invoice.

Rush Fees: If you are in need of anything last minute, rush fees for design and printing will be applied. The fees vary depending on amount of time given to complete project(s) and amount of time spent finalizing the project(s).

Assembly Fees: If your project requires assembly and you would like me to handle this for you, please let me know and it will be included in your quote. Assembly can range from wanting your invitation base adhered to a colored/glitter cardstock or assembling all of the pieces for an invitation package in a pocket, etc. The fees vary based on amount of time involved. Please let me know if you want this when signing your contract so that I can fit this into the timeline of completion for you!

How do you handle cancellations and refunds?

If I have already begun design on a project for you and the event is cancelled or you change your mind about working with me, I am unable to refund your money as I have already spent my valuable time on the project. All projects are custom-made for you, so please double check all spelling, punctuation, etc. on proofs prior to printing to avoid having any issues with the final printed product.

Who owns the rights to the files once you are done with the design?

All files designed by Tara's Designs are the property of Tara's Designs and are intended for personal use of the client only. Any modifications or copying of designs by anyone besides Tara's Designs staff is strictly prohibited. Tara's Designs is allowed full ownership of all designs and reserves the right to use any digital or printed product for advertising and marketing purposes without the client's permission. Any design created by Tara's Designs can be used for other clients in the future.

Do you have a referral program?

Why yes, I do! I offer a $25 gift card good toward a future purchase with Tara's Designs for any customer who refers another customer that signs a contract with me! So go out and spread the good word about how great it has been working with me. Make sure you tell them to mention you referred them to me so I can make a note on their file and contact you about that gift card! Tip: you could be an awesome friend/family member and gift this free $25 to the person you referred to me to use on their purchase!
