When I started offering party kits in 2009 it was a dream come true . And to have them in my own shop was just unreal! A very satisfying feeling indeed. Above is the first one I made which I created for my daughter for her 1st. birthday.
Since then, I have grown a lot and have gotten quite busy, and I am forever thankful for each and every sale! I have gotten so busy that I has become a definite “we” and I thank those fabulous people that have helped Paper Glitter and are currently valuable assets to its growth. But I did not believe in my wildest dreams that piracy would be such a huge issue. I see virtual party girl friends of mine also fall victim to the piracy that has hijacked many of our hard work by so many around the world. I am quite disappointed that there are plenty that do not have respect for other’s work and do as they see fit with our files for their own monetary gain. I am quite baffled and no matter how many times this is brought up, none of the culprits speak up to help us understand what reasons they may have. I used to be angry at these things but now I am just overcome with just disappointment.
But, we have to learn how to not loose sleep over this. We must adjust. We must move on. We must be better. And evolving is a must.
Starting in March, all party kits will be sold as “decorating kits”. All invitations will not be included and invitations will be sold separately which we would personalize for you via an un-editable file. The goal is to have all decorating party kits to editable text kits so you can still personalize some items, but matching invites will be a flat file. One of the few steps we decided to take to better protect our files from piracy. We hate to do this but know in our hearts that our customers and fans will understand. Thank you all for your sweet support xo
