design | molloy

**How It All Started**

A birth announcement caught my eye one day and I shared it with my friend. Creative juices started flowing between us and we collaborated on a unique design - a piece of art that told the story of her first born's arrival into this world. Since that first step, we have been honored with creating all types of unique designs that share important life stories! The "birth" of design | molloy was with our flagship birth story but we continue to branch out with new designs .... so stay tuned!

Check out our flagship product:

**Are We Different Than Other Shops?**

Yes! What makes us different is the partnership behind design | molloy. Colette is a professional Graphic Designer and Photographer, while Debbie is a Pharmacist (who likes to use the right side of her brain too!) Together we make a dynamic duo and provide you with the best of creativity, professionalism and customer service. We have been friends for over a decade and despite living in separate cities, we work extremely well together and cherish the ability to collaborate.

We are passionate about our creations and strive to do our very best to exceed your expectations. We pride ourselves on our excellent customer service, which involves communication to our clients in the most friendly and timely manner possible. We have been told time and time again that we are "easy to work with!"

Frequently asked questions

Will my print arrive with design molloy printed on it?

No, we use our watermark on the display images only. Your print will not have our design | molloy marking on the front.

Note: the Flag Word Art pieces have our logo built into the designs.

Your print will have a small stamp on the BACK with our logo.

Why do the colours on the digital proof look different than the print I received in the mail?

Computers, phones & other devices display colours differently and some colour variation between display and actual print is to be expected.

What is the quality of the paper / print / poster that I will receive?

We print professionally, in-house on 45 lbs high quality photo matte paper. Your design will be cut to the size requested with a minimum 0.5 inch margin to allow for frame variance. You may need to trim the print you receive very slightly to fit perfectly into your specific frame.

Please read through our shop reviews if you are concerned regarding quality of the product you will receive.

If for any reason your design is to be printed externally, we will inform you of this ahead of time. We select only the highest quality print shops to work with.

Sizing details

These are the common print sizes we provide: 5x7", 8x10", 8.5x11", 11x14" or 12x18".

For larger poster sizes, we can provide you a quote based on our external printer rates and estimate shipping charges.

We are happy to accommodate you in any way we can. For example, we are happy to resize to A3, A4, etc...

If you are interested in a customized print size, please inquire prior to placing your order. Thanks!

Will it cost me extra to make changes to the design?

Excellent customer service is an integral part of who we are, which is why we provide up to two additional edits after the first proof, at no charge to you for our customizable designs.

Further work requested beyond these complimentary edits may be subject to fees. No further work would be completed until we provided a quote to you and you accepted and paid in full.

To date, we have been able to service customers within their allotted revisions, thus have not required additional charges for editing.

If you are interested in customizing one of our ready-to-ship designs, please inquire as this may be possible with a small fee.


At this time, we do not offer mattes or frames through our Etsy Shop. Our prints come ready for you to place into a frame of your choice. The frames shown in the listing pictures are for display purposes only.

We Design - You Print

Some of our listings are for digital products only and are labeled with a banner that reads "We Design You Print". For these listings, you will not receive a physical print in the mail. You are purchasing a customized digital file that you will coordinate printing for yourself.

You will receive a DIGITAL PROOF prior to your final print files. We will only finalize the order after you have approved the design.

You will receive two print ready file types - high resolution JPEG (no crop markings) and high resolution PDF (with crop markings for trimming).

What is the standard process for the design proofing and printing stages?

UNLESS THE LISTING STATES OTHERWISE, this is our standard processing time.

For customized designs, we provide a digital proof for you to review within 1 to 2 business days (usually sooner). The listing fee includes up to two rounds of revisions. Once the design is approved, we print and deposit into postal system within 1 to 2 business days.

"As per listing image" designs print & are placed into postal system within 2 business days.
