Happiness Guarantee

Sometimes when you see items on the web, you're not sure what they will look like in person. We understand and to protect you, we've implemented the Happiness Guarantee. Simply put, our Happiness Guarantee means that if you're not happy with the quality of an item, we'll get you something you love. Just email us at service@expressionery.com, contact us via Chat, or call us at 1-866-521-6211, Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 8:00 pm CST. Se habla Espanol. Horas: Lunes - Viernes 8:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. CST


The default shipping method for all orders is Standard, which may include a variety of surface delivery methods. All orders of $50 or more ship free via Standard. When possible, orders will be packaged to ship together (bundled), unless products are delivered from a partner manufacturer. Regardless of the number of facilities the package(s) ships from, there is one single shipping charge per ship-to address. If more than one ship-to address is requested, each subsequent address will incur a separate shipping charge. We do our best to calculate any shipping costs, but if we're shipping outside of the U.S. there may be additional fees depending on your country.

Expedited shipping options, 2-day and overnight, are available as an upgrade. Selecting Expedited shipping will not move an order to the front of the production queue; all production times remain the same as those quoted. The estimated delivery time noted in the checkout is inclusive of production timeframes.

Paper Stocks & Type Sizes

Expressionery.com folded notes are printed on 65# and 100# paper stock. Flat cards are printed on 80# and 100# stock. Invitations and announcements are printed on 12pt glossy paper stock. Card and note orders include a set of envelopes unless noted. Most social stationery items are printed with a size 16pt or 18 pt type. Invitations/Announcements and Social Calling cards allow you to set the font size to your liking. Label, embosser and stamp personalization font size varies by product and the number of personalization lines submitted.

Paper, pounds and points? What does it mean?

Paper is measured in two ways, weight in pounds (labeled “#”) and thickness in points (”pt”).

Pound weight is the weight of 500 sheets of full-size card stock or paper stock. Standard printer paper is sold in 500-sheet packages called “reams”, trimmed down to letter size (8.5”x11“) and is usually labeled 20#, the equivalent of 20 pounds per 500 sheets of 17" x 22".

Paper measured in points gives the thickness of a single sheet in thousands of an inch; for example, 12pt stock is 0.012” thick.

So how do you compare weight and thickness? Here’s a table of equivalent weights for paper:
