holiday guidelines

Posted on November 09, 2016 by mckay | 0 Comments

Ok people. Here are the guidelines for holiday ordering (which is coming up VERY soon). You know me and my last minute instructions. SORRY.

To make up for the procrastination on my end I am going to be offering up something I never have before for those of you who take advantage of our 'early black friday' sale. We typically do not discount on digitizing and embroidery but for one day only I'll be including those when I release the coupon code Friday morning. 

There is some fine print to make sure your order will qualify for Christmas delivery which I'll outline below. This mainly pertains to custom aprons, since prepping logos for those takes the most time. Clutches & monogrammed ribbons are easier to prep so if that is what you are ordering just make sure to order by 12/1 and they will be delivered before Christmas day. I am only able to guantee delivery within the continental US you guys. I hate that, but I've had a few issues come up in the last couple months and I don't feel comfortable guaranteeing delivery when I can't control customs inspections. 
-----------------------
1. Last day to order aprons & toolkits is next Tuesday, 11/15. PLEASE include your logo (a large jpg/png is fine) in an email or attached to your etsy conversation as soon as you order. If we do not receive your logo or embroidery file within 24 hours of purchase, we cannot guarantee you will receive your aprons in time.

2. Your logo will be sent to our digitizer immediately after receipt and we will be back in touch within 2 business days with your quote. Approval and payment need to be made within 24 hours of receipt and then you are ready to go!
-----------------------
That's it! Easy peasy lemon squeezey (as Beckett would say). Feel free to email me with any questions and if you want to get a jump on ordering, go ahead and email me your logo NOW so that we can get you a quote. hello@oatmeallace.com

Can't wait to work with all of you for holiday gifting. Don't forget, I have gift cards as well if you aren't quite sure what to buy!

vendor tool kits!

 As I've mentioned before, Jacin (who was my very first internet-turned-real-life friend) has had some killer ideas/talents that she has graciously shared with me. see (above) and below:

1: vendor aprons (the very first version is pictured below along with a few other random things I've monogrammed for her).
2: white girl rapping. she knows what I'm talking about...and I won't be posting a picture.

family halloween.

we really like halloween around here, and have enjoyed our family costumes since beck made his appearance back in 2011. now that he's a bit older he gets to decide the theme for the family, and this year it's star wars (you're so original, buddy!) 

he wanted a 'dark vadar' themed birthday when he turned 4 this year, so he got his costume back in august as a present from nanny & papa. :)
