About

Breeful Melange - a passionate jill with many skills

Since I was a young girl, learning and creativity have been two very powerful forces in my life. Even when I entered the corporate world, I took part in every learning opportunity that came my way, and sharing what I learned was never trumped by job security. If someone needed help and I was able to do so, I did. This way of thinking has allowed me to connect with so many brilliant people and to grow in ways I never imaged.

My name is Sabrina Easley and I am the founder of Breeful Melange. In additional to this Etsy shop, I am also the founder owner and founder of Presentation Guru, a learning-empowerment company located in Queens, New York. I am a Certified Microsoft Office Master and the Senior Trainer, and was a Senior Presentation Specialist / Graphic Artist at one of New York's premier advertising agencies. I am seasoned designer, project manager and training with over 18+ years of corporate and small business experience.

I believe in empowerment and educating clients who are open to learning about process for applicable products and services. I have never been one to use fancy jargon to impress or put down the skill sets of others to elevate mines. I am simply doing what I love, what I can and will give you facts in black and white, and gray when necessary ^_~*

Etsy provides me the opportunity to be a full time caregiver for my mother. Honestly I would not be able to financially care for her and my family without Etsy. Etsy is such an amazing platform for so many creatives across the globe.

All in all, I am very grateful for all my shop visitors and all my wonderful Etsy clients. Having this shop has given my creative passions so many outlets and it has proven to be a beautiful path on this journey that we all call life.

Thank you for stopping by our Etsy home.

Be prosperous and wishing you much love!
Bree, William, Mandii, Jaime, Michael and Melvin

Frequently asked questions
How many times can I use a reusable silk screen stencil?

We have personally used and tested one premium stencil 20 times and the stencil was still intact. The manufacturer of the photo emulsion film says it can be used over 100+ times and I believe it to be true as long as you take care of the stencil. Additionally several clients informed us they were able to etch 100+ glasses using 2 stencils.

How many stencils will I need and how do I use the stencil?

For glass etching, if you will be processing a small batch of products of 50 or less, one stencil is all you will need. However, if you will be working with 50 or more items and depending on your time frame, you may want to purchase one stencil for every 75-100 products, to decrease your overall production time.

For painting, if are working with acrylic enamel paint, we suggest you purchase 2 stencils for every 50 products.

With every order, we provide free instructions in PDF format for 1) using a silk screen stencil with glass etching cream (Armour Etch or Etch All Glass Etching Cream) and 2) using a silk screen stencil with paint.

Additionally we have an sample application video on YouTube:
http://youtu.be/AVpcTnVkBX8

Why does silk screen stencils cost considerably more than vinyl stencils?

The production process for the development of a reusable silk screen stencil is more involved than a die-cut stencil. Our pricing for our stencils includes the time for the proof/design creation, materials, labor and our creativity. Additionally we include a pro-rated fee for our usage of electricity and water. ^_^

Do your provide free design proofs for custom banner, geofilters and other designs before a product is purchased?

With every personalized order, we provide 2-3 rounds of revisions. We work with each client until they are satisfied and approve a design for finalization or production.

Given the amount of time it can take to revise a design, be it changing the layout, searching for fonts or design elements, we no longer providing digital proofs for free.

However. we do offer the option to purchase a $5-$50 design proof which allows for the preview of a design before an order and for us to be compensated for our time.

This fee is non-refundable, but to-date all our clients have moved forward with a purchase.

Why are some banner designs more expenses that others in your shop, as well as other Etsy shops?

Some designs are completed in minutes while others are completed in days. The time I put into each piece is reflected in its price.

A design that takes me less than 60 minutes to create will be much, much less than one that took me over 8 hours to complete.

Additionally, I don't nickel and time my customer and clients, and I always give each project something extra. Each design, even a template design, will be unique to each customer/client. I will usually add some little details or I may inject a whole new twist.

Ultimately, my primary objective is to produce a design that is worth of every cent of your money.

What is the process for using a DIY silk screen stencil?

Etching with silk screen stencils can have a learning curve for some, which is why we suggest each client conduct beta tests to get practice using both the dry and/or wet application methods.

Practice, practice, practice using a couple of test products ^_^. We suggest testing alternate application methods as it allows each user to discovery what works best for their skill set with the products being used. While the PDF instructions and videos are very detailed, and provided as a bonus resource to our clients, they are in no way a one method fits all framework.

How do I use a DIY silk screen stencil?

Depending on the product, materials used and the user's skill set, one coat of glass etching cream make be all that is necessary or perhaps two coats may be needed. Or perhaps the dry method works better than the wet method, or maybe a different paint works better.

We provide free PDF instructions for using glass etching cream and paint, which provides a good foundation for the process.

However, we strongly suggest practicing and discover what works best for all the variables of a project.

Can I design a stencil online or do I have to use one of your designers?

You can design your stencil online at our website using our design portal:

https://www.designwithbree.com/design-collabo-stencil/

However if you would like one of our designers to handle the design, we will be happy to assist you.

Do you accept cancellations?

I will accept a cancellation within 48 hours after an order is place. Once the first design proof has been provided, an order can not be cancelled.
