Most designs in my shop are created by one person...Mary (that's me). The graphics are created from my own photography, computer programs, vintage postcards and wallpaper, freehand drawings and some scanned images of my mixed media collage art.
You will find unique and colorful designs that are not published elsewhere on the web here in my shop.

If you need more information on an item, please contact me, I will be glad to answer any questions.

I have been the owner and designer of The Hourglass Studio since June of 1982 and continue to design and craft new products as much as possible. Most of my days were spent designing and wholesaling jewelry and wood products at large markets. Now I am semi retired and keeping life simple.

Please note that there may be slight variations in color from different monitors we use.
The papers you view is only a representation of the actual product which is a high quality 80 and 100 pound cover (unless specified as 140 or 88 pound). I purchase all the paper I use from a local supplier, not a store.

Files for CUSTOM printed (not downloadable files) and cut cards will be kept in my files for five months only , they will be deleted due to inactivity.

(¸.•` ♥ LOGO request to be added to a card or tag (small) is $ .20.
Your logo must be at least 150 DPI. I do not fix or make changes to your logo. Your logo should be ready for me to work with. If it needs to be worked on or fonts need to be changed you should contact the person who designed it for you. If you want me to add or delete parts of the logo you must be the copyright owner of the logo. Just because you paid for the design does not mean you own the rights, please contact your designer to find out.

♥ LOGOS and/or graphics will not be printed more then 1 to 1.5 inches on a card or tag. Full sheet logos or designs will have additional charges added depending on the design or logo. Please contact me for a quote.♥
