Since it is on the back I don’t think it is a huge deal. However if you paid a lot for these invitiations or it really bothers you I would talk to them about it.

ummm thats not okay. I would say something and chances are they will hopefully rush order ones that are done correctly for free to you. You didn’t pay for a half ass job…


Those are gorgeous invites btw.

I think you need to bring it up. Ask for a resolution; the seller might be willing to propose something that makes you both happy. It’s reasonable that you expected the invitation to be completed, not half way strung together. Did the seller show a picture of the back with the product listing? If so, it’s a big problem. If not, they might try to say that they didn’t promise you it would look good on all sides.

It bugs me a lot. I think I would care less about the gap if the lace had been cut straight, but in general its a bit sloppy.


I would definitely be upset. Are they all like that? Did the original listing show the back as different and complete?

Personally, I would say something. If this was a company like WPD or Vistaprint or something, I’m pretty sure you would say something without a second thought and an Etsy seller shouldn’t be different. Though it is on the back, I think it is kind of sloppy for that many to be affected. If it was just one or two, I would let it go.

I would say something. $700 is a pretty penny and you’ve paid for perfection.

I would totally say something – you spend money expecting a certain quality of work. I know it can be hard with Etsy vendors cause you develop almost a mini-relationship with them, but that doesn’t give the seller an excuse to cut corners!

Edit: $700??? I would DEFINITELY say something!

I would absolutely say something. It does look sloppy with the gap, & for $700, you’re paying for perfection.
