I really just love to create my designs and would continue to do this even if no one bought a single thing.

I really started the etsy shop to get certain friends off my back (I adore them, but they can be reeeeeally persistent in an incredibly loving sort of way). But I'm glad they didn't give up on their crusade of convincing me I "should totally sell this stuff online!" Thanks to them and any of you who stop by my shop to check out my work! <3

    I'm a teacher turned work at home mom while my kids are little. I use software for my art as it has benefits over paint & canvas, one of the most important being that my kids can't get into my computer and dump it all over the dining room floor.

Hello and thank you for visiting my store! Your satisfaction is of the utmost importance to me. If you have any difficulty printing one of my designs, want any additional alterations, or need any technical assistance, please contact me and I will be happy to help you!

  • Buy with Apple Pay

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
I accept any form of payment, but due to the digital nature of my work, I will not send the digital file until payment is received and processed. Checks must clear before I can email the design.
Once your payment is processed, all orders will be sent via email to the email address associated with your Etsy account within 1 - 3 business days. Unless the listing specifies a print, this is a purchase of a digital file that will be delivered electronically.

Print purchases will be shipped within 1-3 business days. You will receive a tracking number for your prints when they ship.
Refunds and Exchanges
Please note you will not receive any printed products unless the listing specifies a print. Due to the digital nature of my products, once you have received the digital design, all sales are final. I do not accept any returns or offer any refunds. I DO offer order cancellation prior to your digital design being sent.

Your satisfaction is important to me, and so I will work with you for a reasonable amount of time to get your digital design to a condition that you find agreeable.
Additional policies and FAQs
Color shown on the computer screen may vary from computer to computer based on your monitor's settings. Because of this, actual print colors also may vary from the colors depicted on your monitor. It is strongly suggested that you print out a copy of this design from your printer to check coloring before ordering prints from a photo lab. I will happily make minor color adjustments at no additional charge if needed.

When saving a design, be sure that you click to "download" the file from the email in order to save the image. If you open the image in a new browser window, then right click and select "save as" you will loose about 80 percent of the resolution contained in the image. The web can only show 75dpi. The image I am sending you has a resolution of 350dpi. This will affect the quality of your prints if you don't download the full size image with the correct resolution.

These designs are for PERSONAL use only and may not be used commercially or resold under any circumstances.

Be sure to carefully double check the spelling of your design before printing.

I fully uphold the legal rights of photographers. By submitting your photo, you agree that you are the photographer or that you have the written permission from the copyright holder to use their image in such a manner. You also agree to take full responsibility for the misuse of any copyrighted images.

Frequently asked questions

Can I make changes to my design once you send it to me?

Yes! Your satisfaction is important to me and I will be happy to work with you to make your design perfect! I expect there to be some tweaking involved with most digital file purchases. I do however ask that you limit your changes in the final design to five or fewer file versions. So for example, if you receive your file and you'd like these seven little things changed, I will happily change those seven things and send you a new file. This then counts as your second version. You would have three more to go. Once you have your fifth proof, if you decide you would like additional work beyond the first five versions, I will work with you for as long as you want, but there is a fee for continued graphic design services.

How long until I get the digital file for my invitation?

If you have ordered one of my pre-designed digital files either from Etsy or directly through email, I get to them as soon as I possibly can. I guarantee files are returned for your approval in 1-3 business days from the time your payment is processed. I am "closed" weekends, but more often than not, I will get back to you the same day or the following morning from the time you place your order.

If you plan to order a custom design (you want me to make something special for you that you don't see in my shop) I will give you a time estimate for your project at the same time I give you your price estimate. Custom orders sometimes take several days to complete.

Can I have my file in a special format or different size than what you have listed?

Yes. I typically send files as JPEGs, but upon request I can send them as a PDF, PNG, BMP or TFF. Most invitations are set to a 5x7 size, but I can alter them to fit a 4x6, or Costco sized 6x7.5, or a square shape, or a circle, or an ornate layout, or add a bleed area around the edge, or I can fit your design to a particular template of a printer you've chosen to use. I can create them in RGB or CYMK color sets. Please keep in mind, size or shape changes may somewhat alter the appearance of the design.

How do I print my Sweet Pea Cards file?

There are multiple ways you can choose to print these designs:
* I will happily do your printing for you. Simply purchase one of my "Print Services" found in my Etsy shop.
* You can print them yourself from your home computer.
* You can upload them to any online printer just as you would an image from your digital camera and print them either as a card, or as a photograph.
* You can put your files on a USB stick and print them as a card or photograph at your local photo print shop.

Do you sell printed invites?

Yes! When you do your printing through me, I order your invitations through an upscale print company. The quality is equal to what you'd find in a high end stationary boutique. Crisp, bright colors on firm, high-grade card stock. You won't find a better print quality. And I mean that. You really won't. Invitation prints come with free envelopes and are two sided, so I offer a free flip side design in case you'd like something on the back.

There is a selection of card stocks:
* Linen: lightly textured
* Pearlescent: slight pearl like shimmer
* Felt: regular heavyweight stock
* 100% recycled: eco friendly.
Additional cost:
* Cotton
* Bamboo

Prints typically arrive in less than a week from the time you approve your proof.

Custom and personalized orders

I do all custom work at $20 an hour, and I work very fast. Because of this, custom work is often quite affordable. Contact me and I will happily give you an estimate for your project. My estimates are firm, so unless you request additional work that was not agreed upon in the original discussion, I stick to my estimates. If you have additional requests that will involve an extra charge, I will communicate with you about costs so you aren't surprised by any charges. I will only begin work once the initial payment has been processed.

Can you edit this photograph I'd like to use in my design?

Yes. If you just want a single small blemish repaired, or your photo switched to cyan or black and white, or some other minor alteration, I will happily do that quick edit while creating your file. If you would like extensive editing made to your photo, I can do that too. However, significant photo editing is a separate service and will include an additional charge. I do not remove watermarks from photos. You must purchase the photo from your photographer to have the watermark removed.
