Tips

  • Spellcheck: Before sending everything to the seller, make sure you have correctly added the name, date, and any other important information.
  • Back-up present: When dealing with a third party, it’s important to have a back-up present in case something goes wrong with your first idea. This is important if you’re having something sent from overseas, and you should always take into consideration the shipping and handling times.
  • Check the dimensions: Sometimes dimensions on the website aren’t a proper representation of the real thing. Take out a measuring tape and make sure you’re happy with what these products will look like.
  • Insurance: Just in case the shipment goes missing, pay for insurance to make sure you’re well compensated. If you can, track the shipment every few days to see how long it takes to get to you.
