Love, love, love. I ordered invites as well as coordinating items and they are amazing. Chrissy was amazing to work with. She went above and beyond to help make it just right. So happy.
Exploring my Creativity through Designing Finch
At a young age, I always knew that creativity was going to be a huge part of my career. And wow, it sure has become just that! Etsy has given me an outlet for free expression.
Creating invitations and announcements has always been my passion. I love knowing that my design is a "preview" of what is to come or what has already arrived, whether it be a party, wedding or new bundle of joy. Knowing that I wanted to tap into my creativity, but torn at the thought of leaving my two sons, Breckan and Cannon and my husband, Mark for more work outside the home, Designing Finch became a reality. I could have the best of both worlds. Not only a full time employee, but a Mom, and a Mom with passions and dreams that are coming true.
While being creative with a mouse and a keyboard is one outlet of my expression, creating things with my hands is another. I always loved personal home decor. Inspired by the lack of personalized items in my home, I was moved to create photo coasters and wood photo blocks to bring the warmth that personalized touches bring to a home, into my own. From there, it became a must-have for all my friends and family. After all, it is the BEST gift ever!
So there you have it. Designing Finch. A good mix of digital and analog all in one!

Q. What is a 'printable .jpg file' and how do I print it?
A. A printable .jpg file is the exactly the same as a digital photo. It can be printed at a local photo lab or an online photo lab as a digital photo. If you are requesting a PDF, it can be printed at a local print shop or copy center, online professional printers or on a desktop printer.
Q. Can I change the colors and wording on the design?
A. Yes, every design can vary in color and wording. However, if the wording does not fit the area allowed, then a $5 re-working fee applies.
Q: Can you apply a sepia, B&W or vintage tone to my picture(s) ?
A: Yes. Free of charge!
Q. Can I add and/or delete graphics or photos?
A. Yes. This is an extra $7 for the time needed to redesign the layout.
Q. Can I have a 4x6 format instead of 5x7?
A. Yes. Please be aware that a 5x7 is a standard greeting card size.
Q. Can I have a different format size other then 5x7 or 4x6?
A. Yes. We resize for free if it is smaller than 8x10. If you are requesting larger than 8x10 a $5.00 fee will apply.
Q: I noticed some skin imperfections. Can you correct this?
A. Yes. I will correct red eye and small imperfections if noted free of charge.

CUSTOM DESIGNS (made from scratch): $35
If you like my work, but can't find a specific design you are looking for, I will gladly create a custom design to your specifications. Please read these easy guidelines:
1. Payment is expected before sending proofs
2. Please allow 7-14 business days for completion of a proof
3. Unlimited revisions are included
4. Disney Characters or any other characters are copyright protected and it is illegal for me to reproduce them.
ALTERATIONS TO A CURRENT DESIGN: listing price + $5
If you'd like to delete or add graphics, alter the design orientation, delete or add photos, request to replace a pattern with a pattern from another design, a custom design fee will apply. As with a design made from scratch, altering the original design to your specific requests involves much more time, therefore the price is reflective.
PHOTOS & PRINT QUALITY
Please send your photos un-cropped so that I have the freedom cropping to fit the design. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR LOW-QUALITY PROVIDED PHOTOS ON WOOD BLOCKS!
Computer screens are all calibrated differently and colors may print differently from what you see on screen. Color variations between printing at a photo lab vs. professional printer is also common. I also strongly encourage printing a test copy of your finalized design at the photo lab or print shop that you intend ordering from to proof colors. Designing Finch is not responsible for typos or undesired colors once the FINAL proof has been approved.
