IT'S FINALLY OPEN!
I've been working hard on getting the shops set up within my own website! I'm proud to announce that the charm shop is finally up and running and ready for you. I'll still be offering products through Etsy, but this is a great way for people to shop within my site rather than being redirected.
I thought I'd take a minute to explain how the site works as it's a little different from my Etsy site!
First off, you can still shop as you do on Etsy by choosing "Pre-Designed Items" in the Categories section on the side bar. These items are set using standard chains and set amount of charms per listing. For example a 2 Name Cluster Necklace will automatically come with a standard chain, two 12 mm charms, a metal and a bead charm. You'll still be able to choose custom printing instead of standard fonts, but these are slightly less customizable than the "build your own" style of the rest of the site.
HOW TO BUILD YOUR OWN ITEM:
STEP 3: Add any special elements you want including metal charms, stamped hearts and/or beads. Under each listing there are different metals to choose from (if applicable) This will make it easy for you to mix silver, copper and brass to create a beautiful look!
STEP 4: Once you're done designing click "checkout" in the top right column. This is where it will ask you for your country to adjust shipping. If you have any coupon codes put them in here and click "update"
STEP 5: Click "Check Out" this will take you to Paypal automatically and ask you to log in. Once you get all set there is a "Note to Seller" spot in Paypal. This is where you'll be adding any notes about what to print etc. This is very important as it's the only place that will allow the details to be printed on the invoice I use to create your piece. By inputting the details there it not only helps expedite orders, but also ensures accuracy. I cannot tell you how long it takes to track down our conversation via one of my 4 email addresses, Facebook, Twitter or even Etsy convos. Plus if we've had a conversation post the one I find when searching in which we change part of the design it can cause a serious mix up.
NOW GO SHOP!!!
OH AND USE THE COUPON CODE: GRDOPN25 AT CHECK OUT FOR 25% OFF UNTIL 10/3
*** lastly, if you are ordering more than one piece at a time I am currently asking that you place separate orders to ensure all items are kept separate and less confusing when processing. I'll be returning any additional shipping fees that may apply in these cases.
