How Ordering Works…

Hi there! Thank you for inquiring into how the Order Process and Design Process works regarding my blinkie and blog design service. The process is quick and painless, I promise! :)

.

Upon visiting my site, there is a lot of information to take in right away. There is important information that should be read before venturing further along on my website, so please make sure you read it closely!

.

I do all kinds of graphics design ranging from blog makeovers, blinkie design, designer previews, creating custom Facebook profile images and MORE! Many people ask me “What is a blinkie?!” and I simply say that it’s a small animated graphic that is fun and provides the viewer with information such as “Come visit my website!” or “Find my digital scrapbooking products here!”. I do not limit myself in designing for digital scrapbookers only. I have several customers who own their own businesses in many different fields and I’ve also designed company logo’s and other various graphics that help small company’s thrive!

.

While navigating through the examples of the services that I offer here on my website, you may have come to a decision and wish to make a purchase. All of my check out processes go directly through PayPal, a safe and easy way to purchase online, where I’m also verified. And no worries if you do NOT have a Paypal account, Paypal handles credit cards as well and none of the personal information is ever passed onto me.

Here are the steps in which you will be taking here on my website if you’ve decided on a blog makeover… (all other purchases [such as a blinkie purchase] are very simple, merely click the button that says “ADD TO CART” and your Cart can always be viewed by clicking the button that says CART directly beneath my header, showing the contents of your cart where you can add more items, edit your cart contents by removing items and finally, checking out)

 .

.

Based on what you need, please choose a 2 column blog makeover, or a 3 column blog makeover…

2 COLUMN BLOGS ARE HERE   –   3 COLUMN BLOGS ARE HERE

Are you interested in a possibly purchasing a ‘vector graphic’ or ‘stock photo’ ( which are the popular female images in many of my blog makeovers previews)? Please visit one of these recommended sites below… the sites are just suggestions as they contain the more popular images that I’ve seen used, please feel free to choose whichever vector graphic and/or stock photo site suits your needs… and if you do choose to purchase a vector graphic and/or stock photo, I require my clients to email me the graphic that they get from the website they choose to purchase it from (in either .AI or .EPS format preferably, or changes can NOT be made to image) with any changes listed they would like.

.

{I do not purchase the “vector images” / stock images that you see in many of my blog layout previews. My prices are lower than most graphic designers out there that offer blog makeover services because I require my customers to purchase any vector graphics, so that they hold the licencing to the image featured on their blog. I do request the permission to use the vector graphics for their project alone and do not reuse any customer purchased vectors in any way/shape/form. All graphics are purchased by blog owners and they retain the licensing and rights to use the graphics as they see fit under the terms and conditions of the vector designer/creator.}

.

Purchasing a vector graphic and/or stock photo isn’t always necessary. For those on a tighter budget, I’m fully capable of creating a fantastic looking blog to suit your style and needs w/o the use of such graphics.

When browsing my blog portfolio HERE,  you can see that not every client does purchase extra graphics (like female ‘avatars’/’characters’) for their header and I’m still able to please my client and make them happy with their blog!

Other graphic suggestions include a possible digital scrapbooking kit created by myself, that I sell at my store, which you can find HERE. {Please do not purchase a kit created by me for your blog makeover service, I have access to all of the kits ;) If you would like to purchase the kit you’ve picked out for your blog graphics for your own personal needs, please feel free to do so, but for makeover purposes, it is not required.}

 .

If you have any other graphics to provide me in designing your blog, I require my client’s to email those particular graphics, if you have not picked out a kit from the above link that I have listed, please provide me with an alternate digital scrapbooking store and link to the particular kit you’d like me to use and I will purchase the kit / paper pack / element pack. If you are just unsure all around regarding the graphics for your blog, please email me for some ideas and we can definitely discuss your options. I can provide many different links to digital scrapbooking store, or custom create something based on your particular needs :)

.

.

I have several different types of Extra’s that I offer. Merely add each item you want to your cart as you browse through if you are interested in that feature for your blog. You can view my EXTRA’S HERE. Again, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PURCHASE ANY EXTRA’S if you do not wish to. It’s merely a helpful suggestion. If you are looking for a blinkie to match your blog, or some social media icons, or even a matching Facebook customization, then I would suggest checking out my extra’s page :)

.

I also design extra’s for client’s who are not interested in a blog makeover and just want something to match their current blog design (NOT designed by myself). This instance is rather special and access to any graphics or element pieces is required by client , if they want everything to match. In rare circumstances, I can get the Extra purchased to match w/o the use of provided graphics; which I will tell you if I can accomplish or not at the time of your purchasing the extra, or ahead of time, if you fill out a contact form.

After browsing around and clicking ADD TO CART on whichever services you decide on, you will need to check out. To get to your cart is very simple, see the screen shot below.

You simply click the CART button directly below my header.

get to cart

Once you’ve clicked the cart button, this page will appear and it will show you YOUR cart contents and give you the option to change the quantity of how many services you want, update your cart, remove items from your cart (by clicking the red X), and finally checking out.

cart 1

.

Once the “Proceed to Checkout” button is clicked, you will be re-directed to create an account.

This information is NEVER passed onto anyone else! It is illegal for me to sell, share, or trade any personal information of yours, and I’m the law abiding sort! ;)

Directly below is your final page to enter in your personal information and then place your order with me for the services you picked out. Once you press PLACE ORDER, you will be automatically directed to Paypal.

cart check out

.Once you get to PayPal, you will be required to either purchase with your existing Paypal account, or with a credit card THROUGH PayPal.

.

.

.

Option 1 will allow you to log into Paypal with your log in and password, IF you have a Paypal account.

.

Option 2 will allow you to directly purchase the item with your own personal credit card. Paypal is in direct contact w/ your credit card information, NONE of which is EVER passed onto me, therefore you DO NOT need to physically have a Paypal account to order from me! You can do so easily and securely with a credit card.

.

.

I will then get an e-mail from Paypal stating that a new order was placed. I generally will reply to the e-mail that is provided from you. Therefore, filling out the proper information is very important. Please provide a VALID email address and do not make up a fake street address or city/town. This information will always be kept confidential and private by myself. I have never and will never sell or trade your information you provide me, and your credit card number is never passed onto me, it’s directly in Paypal’s hands. I have never and will never abuse or take advantage of any emails or passwords that I am given when our relationship begins and ends. I get your email address either by you using your credit card and providing a valid e-mail address, OR if you have a Paypal account already, Paypal uses the e-mail associated w/ the account.

.

After your payment has been completed, I require my client’s to visit  the custom order forms page ( BLINKIES ORDER FORM PAGE)   (BLOG ORDER FORM PAGE)   (EXTRA’S ORDER FORM PAGE) and download the appropriate forms for the products in which they’ve just purchased- fill them out and email them to me. I will not be able to begin designing a proper blog or blinkie or extra service for you unless I get a proper form, therefore the time it takes you to send me the proper forms is all client led. Once I get the forms that are filled out, I will e-mail the client letting them know I got the forms and payment okay, ask any questions that I may have, and the design process will begin!  I encourage all of my client’s to contact me if they ever have any questions or concerns about my service; before, during or after the design process.

 .
Please keep in mind, the more thorough your forms are filled out, the easier AND faster it will be for me to complete your design. Also, the quicker you reply to my emails during this design process, the easier AND faster it will be for me to complete your designs. If you are unsure about anything, I’m always available to discuss your design options with you via e-mail, yahoo instant messaging service, or phone. If there are any personal delays on your part, in your ability to return communication, then you will have to accept that the design time will be delayed as well.
