    I would say that you should contact Etsy and let them know that the vendor is being unresponsive. They will probably contact the vendor and this should help jump-start your contact again. Good luck:)

    Wow, this is very unprofessional behavior.  I own a stationery store and we would never not answer customer emails – we try to answer back within the hour and at the latest within a day.

    If there is a phone number you could try calling, otherwise if your email attempts have failed you should try emailing Etsy as Miss Burgandy suggested.

    The only thing I could think of that might be happening is that your emails have been caught by a spam filter.  However, if she responded back to the same address before, that is probably very unlikely.

    I agree with MB!  There is no excuse for poor communication.  The economy is slow and vendors should be thrilled with having work right now!  I know it’s getting to be busy season, but still no excuse.

    Contact etsy and tell them the situation.  They should clear it up.  Hope all goes well with your invites.

    I have dealt with two etsy vendors in the very recent past and had nothing but good experiences btw.

    Ugh.  E-mail is the bain of a bride’s existence.  Pick up the phone.  Call her.  Speak to a real person!  E-mails can be so easily lost, overlooked.  E-mails are easy to ignore.  They move down day after day until they’re not even on the same page anymore.  I suggest you make a phone call to find out what is going on.  If you are unable to reach her by phone within a week, then I would leave her a message and send her an e-mail saying you are unhappy with her service and intend to seek repayment through Etsy.  If that doesn’t get her attention, seek repayment, and find a new printer.

    I would try one more time to contact her, and include a note that if she does not respond, you will have to get etsy to intervene. Etsy has very strict policies about sellers, and just your one inquiry could get her shop permanently kicked off etsy. That’s pretty extreme, especially if she has a good reason why she hasn’t responded. How is her feedback, is it mostly positive, then it’s likely she is working on your stuff and will get back to you when it’s ready.

    Etsy isn’t a whole lot of help when it comes to these situations, but, you should have their mailing address and real email (not etsy convo) from the purchase you made. 

    You might want to also check their shop header as even though shops are suppose to use the vacation mode when out, I have noticed that not everyone does.

    And even though it is nice to be, well, nice about it, a month with no return correspondence is not okay, especially when you have made a payment!

    Perhaps post a comment on her blog about not hearing from her.

    She might not want the bad publicity on her public blog?

    Give her a benefit of a doubt. Maybe something happened.

    Do send her the e-mail, then if this does not work. Contact etsy and get her phone and mailing address.
