    WHAT IS THE MINIMUM AMOUNT OF SEED OR TEA PACKET PARTY FAVORS THAT I CAN BUY? top

    Because each order is custom & we do not charge for Personalization or design set up fees, we kindly ask that you purchase a small minimum of 12 Seed Packets.  

    HOW MANY FAVORS OR INVITATIONS SHOULD I ORDER? top

    SUGGESTION:   It’s wise to order extra favors and/or invitations as a
    safety net for:  last minutes guests
    who weren't originally counted on,
    keepsakes for scrapbooks or photo albums & mementos to be sent to out of state friends or family.

    Recommended following guidelines are for :
    20-30 extra favors for weddings
     10-20 for other events.
     
    This also helps avoid having to reorder last minute
    and saves paying shipping costs twice!

    WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I RECEIVE MY SAMPLE PROOF? top

    There is no charge or set up fee for the initial Sample Proof on Seed Favors or Tea Favors.        This is a free courtesy for you.

    In addition, we also allow as a courtesy,  one (1) edit (aka as a change or correction)  after the initial proof has been sent, however any additional editing requested  will be charged a separate fee of $5.00,   per edit request.

    This is why we STRONGLY encourage you to view the Sample Proof well, by double, even triple checking that everything is accurate.
    We cannot stress this enough!

    You will receive your sample proof within 24-48 business hours (many times much sooner) after placing your order, at which time  we kindly request that you check your email frequently, and then get back to us within 24-48 hours. We also recommend that you check your spam folder to insure that you receive the sample Proof, as we are not responsible for any email settings you might have, that would disallow the sample proof to get through.
    This insures us enough time to address any changes (edits) that may occur while you have viewed your sample proof.
    If delays occur on your end and we do NOT receive the sample proof within 24-48 hours upon it being sent to you, either with any revisions you might have or your confirmation  to proceed, thereby then bringing us closer to the due date of your event, you may incur an (additional) (rush) order charge and/or additional shipping fees.

    Although we specifically request that you confirm you are giving us permission to proceed, etc. simply stating you "love it" "it's perfect" or the like, etc. it will be construed as a confirmation for us to proceed. So please READ the  instructions which accompany the Sample Proof so you are clear on everthing. Once a proof goes into production, it cannot be changed or cancelled!

    If you do not know what lettering style, lettering color, verse, name or date you want, in the order that it should appear, please organize your ideas on paper first, and then TYPE and email us your request, EXACTLY AS YOU WISH FOR IT TO APPEAR, so that you are not charged additional fees.
    This saves everyone time and eliminates the potential for miscommunication.

    MY PHONE CALL IS NOT GETTING THROUGH. WHY? top

    If you've been trying to  call us and  the phone keeps ringing or the call does not go through,
    it is  due to your personal long distance phone carrier. Even though YOU pay them for this.
    This is definitely an issue we strongly recommend that you look into,
    as it is illegal and many of these carriers are not fulfilling their services.
      Service that you pay for!

    This is a national issue, and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has been investigating the problem. Complaints concerning calls to rural areas across the country have been on the rise.
    Many point to wholesale network providers known as "Least Cost Routers" who route long distance calls on behalf of telephone providers
    With competition and the growing number of unlimited calling plans being offered, certain telephone providers increasingly turn to "Least Cost Routers" to keep costs down.
    Given the higher than average cost to complete long distance calls to rural areas than more populated urban areas, some providers unfortunately decide that it is cheaper to not complete the  calls.

    You PAY for this service. A service they don't provide!

    Earlier this year, the FCC issued a ruling warning carriers of suspensions and/or possible fines of up to $1.5 million for failing to complete calls. For additional information or to report a problem, visit the FCC's website at https://www.fcc.gov/encyclopedia/problems-long-distance-or-wireless-calling-rural-areas

    You can file a complaint directly by going to:

     If you are ordering months in advance, and are not in a rush for your order, we would greatly appreciate it if you could please let us know this as well.
    Please bear in mind that every order is a custom order.


    CAN YOU RUSH MY ORDER? top

    Due to the nature of each  order, being personalized, we do not want to compromise the quality of anyones order. Every order is just as important to us,  as it is to you.  For this reason, we we strongly request that you place your order, at the very least,  3 weeks in advance of your event, (not any time less) due to the time involved in  setting up custom  designs,  emailing the Sample Proof, awaiting approval of the Sample Proof and then the actual processing of each order, packing, etc. PLEASE NOTE: Orders placed with the requested due date of two weeks or less (eg: items needed 14 days from the date, which  you are placing your order) , are subject to an additional $10.00 Rush Order Fee, which will billed seperately. In addition, our office is closed on weekends and holidays which means orders are processed Monday through Friday.  By requesting the 3 week order before your event this helps to insure that each and every customer receives their order as quickly as possible without compromising quality.

    We also recommend that you check your spam folder to insure that you receive the sample Proof, as we are not responsible for any email settings you might have, that would disallow the sample proof to get through.

    WHAT IF MY ORDER ARRIVES AND IT'S INCORRECT? top

    If your order arrives and the personalization, design choice, etc. is incorrect, please check back to your sample proof. Production is never started on any personalized item until the client has signed off on the proof Once you have signed off (aka approved) on it telling us that it is okay to proceed, this tells us that you have viewed it, are pleased and that it is accurate. When we set up each proof, the description (names, message, date, etc) that is typed into the original order forms, by the client  is then literally copied from there to insure that there are no mistakes and  put into opaque boxes (fields) which allows us  to have placement that is exact on each item line. What this means is that we do not actually view your text while setting it.  It is the clients responsibility to insure that the personal spelling of  names, dates, days, message, verse, etc. are correct.  This is one of the reasons why it is so VERY IMPORTANT  to check, double check , even triple check  proofs, before signing off on them.
    We cannot stress this enough.
      After a proof is signed off (aka approved), it then goes immediately into production at which time changes can no longer be made.

    Due to nature of personalized items, we are not responsible for  proofs signed off for approval that were typed, misspelled, have an incorrect date, etc. by the client.  Correction requests that  involve the order being reproduced will be charged as a new order.

    Please note:  Re-Order requests with the due date of two weeks or less, to correct the mistakes, are subject to an additional $10.00 Rush Order Fee, which will billed seperately.

    WHAT IS YOUR RETURN POLICY? top

    Personalized and  Consumable items (eg: Seed Favors,  Tea Packets, Note Cards, etc)  are
    non-returnable and non-refundable.

    Due to the nature of these items, unless it is our error, we cannot accept returns on products which are consumable and/or personalized. 

    However, if it is our error, you must contact us on receipt of your receiving your order so that we can correct it as soon as possible.
    Please double & triple check your info
    and Sample Proof!

    SUPPOSE I WISH TO CANCEL MY ORDER? top

    Orders may be cancelled for a refund, before the clients Sample Proof has gone into production.

      If a client cancels an order,  after the sample Proof has already gone into production, and/or they have already received any Sample Proofs, they will receive a partial refund, minus $20.00, for the administrative fees.

    WHAT HAPPENS IF MY ORDER/PACKAGE IS MISSING? top

    Article 2 of the U.C.C (Uniform Commercial Code) states that when a product is sold and then put into the hands of the shipper, the risk of loss along with the title is passed over to the buyer. Our responsibility ends when the product is boxed and shippedand then given to USPS, UPS, etc. Complaints of missing packages is  the  shippers problem and any complaints should be registered to or against, the shipper.  Any claims made are the responsibility of the customer.

    HOW CAN I CONTACT YOU? top

    You can reach us by email at:  Info@PartyFavorWebsite.com
    or by phone at #(518)287-1660  

    It has recently come to our attention that some people are experiencing what is called "dropped calls" by their own phone provider, when trying to reach us by phone.  This is a fairly new tactic that phone service providers use, in an attempt at saving money, even if you are paying for your own phone minutes. If you attempt to reach us and for any reason are unable to get through, please email us so that we can assist you. You may also wish to contact your phone provider, especially if you are paying for a serv ice that is not being provided to you.

    SUPPOSE I WANT A DESIGN BUT I DON'T SEE IT ON YOUR SITE top

    Contact us!    Click here to Email us   We have many other designs available and new designs are always in the works.  If time allows, we can also take custom design commissions. There is a seperate fee for custom designs. Custom design fees for the front of packet, start at $40.00 & go up according to the detail of each project. Any alterations to the back of Seed Packets will  result in a seperate additional custom fee.

    WHAT IF I WOULD LIKE A DESIGN IN A DIFFERENT COLOR? top

    If you see a design that you like, but you need it in a different color, please contact us with the design #as we may be able to customize it for you, often times at NO additional charge!

    WHAT OTHER WAYS CAN I USE YOUR SEED AND TEA PACKETS? top

    What a great question! We're glad that you have asked. Our Seed and Tea Favor  Packets are not just used as party favors. People use them to keep on hand to add to birthday cards (using a generic "Happy Birthday" message on them, thank you cards and also to hand out just to say "I'm thinking of you".

    We also have clients who tuck them in a basket and hand them out at the end of their dinner parties, or place one each goblet while dining (we do this ourselves!).

    Seed and Tea Packe Favors are an affordable  way to let people know that you are thinking of them and a memorable way to remind them of you or your special event!

    SUPPOSE I WANT TO ORDER SEEDS THAT YOU DON'T ADVERTISE? top

    Most seeds can be ordered special, but we ask that you notify us of  a custom seed request as soon as possible, so that we may get them into  stock.

    There is a minimum separate $15.00 fee for custom seeds, depending on the quantity needed, bearing in mind that this is for our cost of the seeds and the shipping of them to our facility.
    Large bulk quantity requests may be more.
    If the  cost is more than the $15.00 minimum,  you will be notified.

    CAN I REQUEST TWO DIFFERENT COLORS OF INK ON MY ITEMS? top

    Yes! Two different colors of ink can actually enhance the Seed Favors, Tea Favors, wedding Invitations, etc. Please note that there is an additional  one time charge of $10.00 per each additional ink color request.

    DO YOU OFFER DISCOUNTS, PRICE BREAKS ON LARGE QUANTITY ORDERS? top

    On occasion we have  received this type of request along with a promise of a bulk order. What that normally means is that a potential client, looking for bargain basement prices,  has the promise of ordering possibly a hundred favors, etc.  from us and would like a discount. Please allow us to  take this time to address this type of  inquiry.

    We handle all types of events, including corporate functions involving on occasion, thousands of items per order, so a "bulk order" is a term which does not always mean the same thing to everybody.

    While we are aware that you can find generic seed packets for a similar price in a  store, you won't find professional artwork on them specifically designed  for various special events, nor will they allow you the choice of lettering styles, colors, etc.,  personalization, sample proofs for you to view beforehand  and  provide you with personal one on one service through the process so that you can relax. We do.
    Plain and simple.

    Our  favors are set at inexpensive wholesale prices already
    yes, you read that correctly.
    Wholesale.

    What we are is business and design professionals with high standards who have been in the event field with many years of experience What we are not is hobbyists, crafters and the like, who "sell a little something just to fill the time".
    We take our business seriously and you should to.
    Isn't your event special? We think it should be.

    This is our career and full time profession
    & we offer our service to the discerning client.

    Your event will only be as good as the people you hire to enhance your festivities.  If you want cheap discounted items,  remember you will get one shot at your  special event,  with one chance to make that first impression, so take  our advice, don't take chances and most certainly don't look for cheap favors.

    DO YOU OFFER ANY PARTY PLANNING TIPS OR IDEAS? top

    Yes! Please visit our party planning tips and ideas blog  for even more ideas!
