how it all works...

theHELLOtote by Express Yourself offers personalized and unique welcome packages for your guests. With more than fifteen years of combined experience in weddings, parties and special events we aim to deliver a memorable {hello!} your guests will remember for the duration of their stay.

Placing Your Custom Tote with Goods Order: A deposit of 50% will be required to process your tote (stuffed with goods) order. The balance is due on the day of delivery (or at the time of shipment). We kindly ask that orders be placed no later than thirty days prior to the event. Orders placed less than four weeks prior to the event may incur a rush charge. A week prior to your event we will confirm all final details with you to ensure prompt and accurate delivery to your guests. On the day of delivery, you can sit back and relax and leave the work to us.

Options: Do you want to mix and match? No problem. Have an item you need to include that you do not see on our offerings? We can locate it for you. At theHELLOtote we have hundreds of options from bags and packaging to goodies and gifts. Simply contact us and we can work with you to create a custom order perfect for your event. We work with all budgets to help create a memorable welcome.

Minimum Orders: Minimum orders start at 25 pieces (10-12 pieces for select collections). An under minimum charge of $25 will be applied for orders less than the stated minimum. While offering full service design and delivery, we also offer certain items a la carte as you please. Contact us for details.
