Sometimes pictures don’t say a thousand words... Especially in an Etsy shop listing! Not all the details can be quickly seen or understood in 5 photos of a paper garland… Sooooo… here is a compilation of Smiley Wileys’ most frequently asked questions! Hope this helps!
How long are the garlands?
All the garlands are just over 10 feet long. They can be easily snipped to the size you like, or you can ask me to make them in whatever length you like.
How long will it take for my parcel to get to me?
This depends on where you are. My aim is to send the garlands out the day after you order them, but my shop is located in Canada and if you are located outside of Canada I highly recommend ordering your garlands at least 2 weeks before your event. Canada Post only runs on weekdays, and parcels can get held up in customs.
How big are the hearts?
The small hearts are just under an inch across at the widest part, so these are pretty small. The larger hearts are 2 inches across at the widest part.
Do you do custom orders?
YES! I love custom orders! If you want a combination of the shapes that you see, or you want your hearts sewn vertically instead of horizontally, or you want book pages mixed with music pages…. Let me know! I can probably do it for you.
Do you offer discounts?
Another YES! I love big huge orders! I would love to give you 25% off your order of 12 or more garlands!
Can you make my garland from my favourite book?
I really, really, really want to answer YES to this one, but…. If I don’t already have it on hand I will do my best to find the book you request, but I can’t guarantee that I will find it.
Can you add coloured paper to the garlands?
Sometimes! Since I only use book pages to make the garlands I do not stock coloured paper. If the colour you request is easily found at a local shop I can add it to your garland (we will discuss pricing ahead of time too).
How can I make my garlands last?
Garlands are finicky things, and tangle easily. Obviously, don’t use your garlands outside in the rain and wind if you want them to last forever. Take them out of their packaging carefully, and don’t unwrap them until you are ready to hang them. You can wrap them back in their original packaging so you can use them again, or, if you are finished with them, they are recyclable! And so is the packaging!
I hope that helps answer some of your questions!
Have an awesome day!
