SITE POLICY

Below are policies we maintain when running thegritandpolish.com:

  • We will only promote brands that we use ourselves or genuinely believe in. Sometimes they are sponsored, and sometimes I promote products simply because I love them.

  • We occasionally link to products using affiliate links that earn us a small commission when you make a purchase. It costs you nothing but makes shopping easier for you and it helps support your favorite bloggers.

  • We will sometimes work with brands that will sponsor us to promote their products. We will only ever accept sponsorship from brands we genuinely like. If a post is sponsored, we will clearly write that near the top of the post.

  • All published content on thegritandpolish.com, including designs, photographs, tutorials, and posts are created by us, Garrett and Cathy Poshusta. All content on thegritandpolish.com is original unless noted otherwise (inspiration images for instance).

  • We reserve the right to monitor comments. Spam, self-promotional, and offensive comments are subject to deletion.
