FAQs

 


What media do you use for your printed collage sheets?

PaperWhimsy printed collage sheets are printed on high-quality heavyweight matte paper on a professional ink jet printer with genuine Chromalife 100® inks. These images work well with wet media and good success has been had with wet transfer methods. IMPORTANT:We no longer offer fabric sheets.

Help! Can you resend my downloads? My computer crashed!

We are happy to renew download links for up to 30-days after date of purchase. Requests to renew download links older than 30-days cannot be accommodated.

 


What are your domestic shipping charges/policies?

We have tiered shipping charges based on zones. Please see the map and chart, below, to view your shipping costs.

Orders are generally cut and shipped in the order they are received (see below for shipping times). 

Orders placed separately cannot be combined in a single shipment. Each order number that requires shipping must have a unique shipper tracking number for proof of shipment.

 

Order total before shipping Zone 1 Zone 2
$ 0.00 - $15.00 $6.75 $7.75
$15.01 - $40.00 $8.75 $10.75
$40.01 - $75.00 $8.75 $13.75
$75.01 - $100.00 $10.75 $13.75
$100.01 - $150.00 $10.75 $13.75
$150.01 - over* FREE FREE

 

International customers, please refer to our International Shipping Guidelines, below. *For other orders that qualify for free shipping, i.e. meet the minimum and ship to continental US addresses, shipping charges will be refunded when your order is shipped. *Regretfully, we cannot accept add-ons to existing orders nor can we combine shipping for orders placed separately and shipping to the same address. Orders will be shipped in the order in which they are received.

 


What are your shipping times?

I ship orders Monday - Friday. Due to the popularity of my Amazing Alterables™ laser cut goods which I cut and package, myself, orders take approx 14-21 business days*. If you have a small order, i.e. printed collage sheets or orders consisting of four or less Amazing Alterables, it might take me less time to ship.  During high volume periods, i.e. the holidays or large sales, turnaround times may be longer. I want to thank you very much for your patience while you wait for your order.

IMPORTANT: if you have a special 'need by' date you must communicate that with me in the comments section of your order at the time you place it. I will determine, at that point, whether I can accommodate your special request (I always try very hard to accommodate special requests bearing in mind that I print and cut all my goods myself and carry no back up stock of these items). If, for some reason, I cannot accommodate your special request I will reply within 24-hours to let you know.

*Please note that Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays that fall on a week day, are not business days.

Do you ship overseas?

WHY WE CURRENTLY DO NOT SELL TO THE EU: At this time we only sell to North America and Australia. Stringent EU VAT guidelines for downloadable goods have temporarily put a halt on our sales of downloadable images and collage sheets to European Union countries. Unfortunately, this must also include our Amazing Alterables™ because we cannot differentiate which of our collections we'll sell to which countries. EU customers, we hope that the EU taxing authorities will revamp their current guidelines to allow for companies overseas to sell digital downloads without penalty. Please check back for further updates on sales to your country.

 

Customers outside the U.S., please read:

An initial shipping charge will be applied to your order at the time of checkout. This shipping charge is based on a general 3 pound weight going International Priority Mail. Once your order is completed, boxed and weighed for shipping we will refund any overage back to you less $1.00 we use toward packaging materials. PLEASE NOTE: If shipping charges on your order exceed the amount collected you will be billed for the difference at the time your order is ready to be shipped. We do not ship any laser cut Amazing Alterables in bubble envelopes; most everything we ship is in a box in order to ensure that your goodies arrive safe and sound.

Initial shipping charges for International Orders - Priority Mail Medium Flat Rate Box:

(box size:13-5/8" x 11-7/8" x 3-3/8" or 11" x 8-1/2" x 5-1/2") $38.00 - Canada $57.00 - Australia Customs Information: Please note that all orders shipped outside the U.S. will go through customs. Your country's customs will determine if there is a duty on your package and said duty is your responsibility. The true value: Of an order, less shipping, is correctly stated on export documentation and a copy of your invoice is included in your package. Orders going overseas are marked as Merchandise unless they are a gift.

 


Do you backorder?

At this time we are not equipped to offer backorders. If an item you've ordered is not in stock, we refund the purchase price of that item back to you at the time your order is packed for shipment.

 


Can I place my order over the phone?

PaperWhimsy is a web-based shoppe, therefore, you must use the shopping cart to place your order. If selecting the check option I must receive your check within seven (7) business days or your order will be canceled and the items you've ordered will be released back into inventory.

 


Is your checkout process secure?

Absolutely!  Your credit card information is absolutely safe with Shopify payment systems. Any pages that ask for your personal information are encrypted and secure.

 


What is your privacy policy?

We respect your privacy! Any and all the information collected by us will be kept strictly confidential and will not be sold, reused, rented, disclosed, or loaned!
