**PLEASE download your digital designs at time of purchase. The website is not meant to be a storage locker for your digital designs, it is your responsibility to download them and save them for future use.

SCREEN PRINT TRANSFERS: Transfers are NOT intended for RESALE. You are welcome to press the transfers on to shirts, bags, canvases, etc and sell those finished pieces however you are not allowed to purchase my transfers and resell them. Please make sure you read the directions and press accordingly. I will not provide refunds for application errors.

EMBROIDERY:
All embroidery designs come with instant download and 7 formats. .pes, .xxx, .jef, .exp, .vip, .dst, .hus 
**You must have a working knowledge of your embroidery machine and a means to transfer your design to your machine. I am not familiar with all embroidery machines or software, please refer to your user guide with questions about this. 
**PLEASE NOTE** Some embroidery designs come with multiple sizes and others only come with one size, it is your responsibility to read the design description and be aware of the size you are purchasing. I do NOT offer exchanges if you purchase the wrong size. The size is clearly listed in the title as well as the description. 
**Finished sizes and stitch counts are listed on a picture for most designs. IF you come across a design that doesn’t have the info picture, please feel free to contact me and I will get you the information needed.
**IMPORTANT** Due to the large stitchcounts with my designs you need to use the correct amount of stabilizer. Since each machine is different I can’t tell you the best stabilizer to use for your particular machine. I prefer to use a good weight cutaway and float a piece of tearaway when necessary. Hooping not floating is highly recommended. My embroidery designs stitch best in the size they are created in. I am NOT responsible for the quality of the stitchout if you resize, alter, or convert it anyway. If you don’t stabilize properly you won’t have a good stitchout. There are lots of great youtube videos created for each machine that discuss stabilizer. 

CUTTING FORMATS:
All cutting files come in SVG, EPS, DXF and PNG formats. You must have working knowledge of your machine and software to use these designs. I am not familiar with all machines and software, please refer to your user guide with questions about this.

FEEDBACK: I love seeing all the things you create with my designs, feel free to add your pictures to your reviews. If for any reason you have a problem with a design please contact me, I will always do everything in my ability to fix the problem. I’m human and although I do use testers for my designs, on occasion an error will still slip through. 

CUSTOM REQUEST: I do offer custom designs when my to do list allows it. Prices vary depending on design. Please do not ask me to recreate something you have seen from another designer. I have my own designs and respect the work that others put into their designs and will not copy another’s work PERIOD.

REFUNDS & EXCHANGES: Due to the digital nature of the files on this page I do not offer any type of exchange or refund. If you make a duplicate purchase of a digital design you are welcome to contact me and swap it out with a different design. I do not offer exchanges or refunds on ANY screen print transfer. IF for some reason a screen print is out of stock you will be given store credit as a refund. IF for some reason a refund is given through paypal it will be minus paypal fees. SoCuteAppliques reserves the right to charge a restocking fee on any purchase.
