FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do I have to pay in full even though I do not have a final count?

We understand your event may be months away and you most likely do not have a final count on how many items you may need.  If you would like to check out online, you do have to pay in full.  However, we do give you 2 weeks prior to your event date to change your count and will adjust your payment method for the difference.  In the end, you do pay for your final count! We would just like to offer you options!  If you do not want to pay in full, but are worried the about ordering last minute, you have the option of putting down 50% and paying the balance 2 weeks before your event date.  In order to do that, you will have to phone in your order at 877-810-6920.

No. It is pretty simple to tie the bows. The material is really easy to work with. If you tie your shoe, you can tie a sash.

The linen is pressed before boxing them up. If you order polyester, they will have creases due to going through the press machine. We always recommend bringing an iron with you.
