Personalised Party Printables

If purchasing party printables make sure that you complete the online order form after you have made payment & know all the details that you want them personalised with. This will supply me with all the information I need to start personalising your party pack.

If you prefer to customise them yourself I also sell DIY party printable template through the Scrapbook Max Store.
The personalised versions cost more than the DIY versions because I am taking the time to personalise & prepare  them for printing for you.

Personalised Party Printables do not include printing or assembling.
I do however include printing and assembly tips with all my party packs. You can print them yourselves or send them off to be professionally printed.

There is no return or refund on digital items that have already been personalised or emailed. See my Returns Policy above.
