Are there any restrictions to my personalized message?
Yes. We reserve the right to refuse to reproduce anything that we find objectionable.

We also reserve the right to refuse to reproduce anything we believe violates copyrights, encroaches on the rights of others, promotes illegal activity, or violates the law.

I see there are character limitations for personalization. Do spaces and punctuation count as characters?
Yes. A space between letters or words and any punctuation that is part of your personalization message do count as characters.

Can character counts be exceeded?
Sorry, no. We try to determine the maximum engraving area we have on each item and then determine how the personalization message will look best on every item. Please keep your message within the line and character parameters provided.

What is a WISH LIST?
A WISH LIST is sort of a reminder list for a visitor to our site to create for themselves. They can refer to this list when they’re making purchases at our site in the future. An example might be that you’d add an item to your WISH LIST to remind you to buy it later in the year when you may want to give it as a gift or purchase it for yourself at that time.

What is a GIFT REGISTRY?
A GIFT REGISTRY is an opportunity to create a list of items that you would like to encourage others to purchase for you on our site. Usually a GIFT REGISTRY is created for an event and then family and friends of the person creating the GIFT REGISTRY can see what the GIFT REGISTRANT would like to receive as gifts and purchase those gifts on our site.

What’s the difference between a GIFT REGISTRY and a WISH LIST?
Think of a WISH LIST as a reminder for yourself of things you may want to consider buying in the future while a GIFT REGISTRY is a suggestion list for others to consider buying for you, usually for a gift giving event.

Can I create a WISH LIST on the CreativeGiftsDirect.com site?
Yes. You can create both a WISH LIST and a GIFT REGISTRY on www.CreativeGiftsDirect.com.
