The shop that made our invites sent me an email saying that our invites were shipped out yesterday. We only paid 50% so far and I expected to pay the remainder before the invites were shipped to us but nothing was said about the remaining balance. Ideally, I would love to see what they look like before I remit full payment but I just wanted to see if this is normal.
Those who bought their invites on Etsy, did you make your final payment after the invites were done and set to be shipped to you or did you wait until after you received them?

The girl who designed ours talked with me for about an hour one night to tweak EVERYTHING- wording, font, colors- after she gave us the initial proof that she’d designed for us. Then she printed them out, cut them, and sent me a picture of how they looked completed on actual paper. I sent her the entire amount due then, and she shipped them out the next day.

I made the final payment right before she sent the invitations.

same here. when they were ready, i got an email saying they were ready and she could ship them the next day if she received my payment by like noon or something so i paid, she shipped, i got them, i loved them, i mailed them off to their new little homes.

I sent 10% down in order to do the design and to get paper proofs in the mail. Then I had to send the remainder before they shipped. It’s surprising that they didn’t ask for it.
