Announcement   I'm disabled with a constant, continuous migraine (17 years+), so each and every item created and finished is a victory. I'm coming up on 100 items: a milestone, and a significant victory. A victory over pain, over depression, over inertia. Because of the migraine, I don't do social media. If you see something you like, please Pin or Share it so others will also find and like it. Thank you all!

...***...
CUPCAKE TOPPERS are coming soon, as soon as I've decided upon the best size.

GIFT CARDS! I've made some handsome mini-cards that can be used as gift tags, or inserted inside a pocket or lunch sack, or anywhere that you want to tuck a reminder that you are thinking of someone. More will come.

Also note that the collage sheets are offered as .png with transparency: you can print them on sticker paper and use them to seal your presents. With matching gift card, you have a lovely presentation as well as present.

...***...
BOOKMARKS! These make a great gift in themselves, but how nice to give a book to a special friend with a personal note? I'm having fun making bookmarks... have started with some of the genres and the book-heavy professions (or should that be heavy-book professions?), anyway, the sooner you suggest a topic, the sooner I'll get to it.... ;^)

...***...
There is a nice selection of gift boxes in the shop now, and I'm working on templates for FANCY new shapes, since not every gift can fit into a cube and sometimes you want the box to be even more special. An unusual shape makes it distinctive. Decorating these surfaces is more challenging, however, the results are rewarding.

...***...
I'm so excited. :) This afternoon I took the first batch of images to Staples for printing/testing. The sample print is gorgeous! I'm on pins and needles waiting for the rest. After weeks of work, holding a print makes them real. They still need to be assembled for product photography before each of them is listed, however, I can scarcely wait to share them with you.

...***...
This is the place for quality original digital downloads featuring a wide variety of subjects and styles. Every care has been taken to produce miniature works of art in a format suitable for your crafting needs. Please feel free to comment and suggest ideas. If you need something in a different size or style, let me know. This shop is to serve YOU.

This shop is for digital downloads; a way to make art accessible and available to as many people as possible. My one-of-a-kind hand-painted jewelry and original art can be found in my other Etsy shop here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/STARHAVEN

About

Just a letter bit more....

I've always been fascinated by fonts and lettering. When I was a child, I developed secret languages, and what could be more secret than their own letterforms? (Tolkien, of course, did it better: not only languages and letters, but entire cultures, histories, and worlds. sigh)

I'm dyslexic; my handwriting is execrable, but I can DRAW letters... that's a different form of information processing.

There is a mood, a feeling associated with fonts, from that appalling blandness of that unmentionable Swiss font, to the quiet dignity of University Roman, the whimsical joy of Niaisage, the strange curliques of Spiral, the rough woodcuts of Morris, the lyrical fantasy of Kingthings Spike, and the frivolous loops of Rothenburg Decorative, to mention a bare handful. Exploring that mood is part of what I'm doing here.

In addition to the thousands of fonts I've collected and/or purchased over the years, I just purchased the 10,000 font "Ultimate Font Collection", which actually has 11,256 fonts, for a lot of lettering goodness.

What is better than playing with fonts? Decorating them! Photoshop's layer styles, especially layering those layer styles, allow letters to sparkle like jewels, shine like precious metals, or carry the textures of fabric, wood, and stone.

I hope my presentations of these fonts share some of that joy with you.

Since I'm quite positive that you all know what a monitor looks like, instead of showing me at work, I'll give you a peek at some works-in-progress in the photos. Opinions, suggestions, requests are all welcome!

Frequently asked questions

Shipping:

These are digital products, which means no payment of shipping fees and no waiting for the mail. Immediate gratification. ;) Since I'm not sending actual printed paper, there is no worry about bent envelopes or warping caused by humidity.

Upon payment, you'll receive a confirmation email with a link to your own DOWNLOADS page. This is almost instant. You can also go directly to your Completed Orders page and see your downloadable files there. There should be 2 files for each sheet, .jpg and .png with transparency. I have saved these images with maximum quality.

You can download your files at your own convenience. In case of computer hiccups, I do recommend that you save a copy somewhere.

Refunds and Exchanges:

Etsy does not allow for refunds or exchanges on digital files, which makes sense since you can't really return an electronic item. If by chance you order the same item twice, let me know and we'll work something out.

ALL SALES ARE FINAL.

Please ask any questions before purchase. I try to show exactly what you will receive (minus the watermarks), by showing a view of the sheet itself and close-up samples showing a selection of icons and suggested use. I describe the items, the number, size, and distribution of designs as clearly as possible. Please review your order and ask any questions, especially if something seems unclear, before purchase. I want you to buy with confidence and be happy with your decision.

Terms of Use:

You are licensing the use of these images in YOUR OWN artistic creations. Apply them to jewelry, buttons, magnets, cards or collages, decorate a box or ornament or frame, scrapbooks, calendars, whatever.

You have the right to keep, give, or sell your finished products (whether at art & craft fairs or online).

You may reprint and reuse these designs as many times as you want, but distribution must be as an END PRODUCT. You may not publish or distribute the images "as is" (digital or printed sheets), as a supply, in kit form, as part of a template, or publish them for the use of others on any print-on-demand site (Zazzle, Cafepress, etc.). You may not distribute the images on a website, network, CD, etc., for free or for pay.

Custom and personalized orders

Copyright is not transferred with the purchase of these designs. I retain their copyrights. You are purchasing the right to use the image, not to own the image. Images are non-exclusive, which means that others may also purchase and use the same image for competitive or other purposes.

If you wish custom sheets with exclusive rights (for example: an organization, club, or school), let's discuss it. I'm happy to make something special just for you.

Sizing:

I add a couple of pixels to the size, for example 305 pixels instead of exactly 300, so that users have some wiggle room if their printer is not accurate or their hands less than steady while cutting. When printed at 300dpi, this is about 1/32" all around. You should have no white showing around your image. If you are using a circle cutter, simply center the image and you are good to go.

Sample Image:

The design in the middle of the "16" page is full size for "inchies" and unwatermarked. That is what you will receive. [Please note that I save at highest quality. Etsy does recompress the files in the listing.]

If you wish to download and cut out that centered sample image, and "take it for a test drive" (see what it looks like under glass in a pendant), you are welcome.
