From my morning reading:
I will bless the Lord at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.My soul will make its boast in the Lord; the humble will hear it and rejoice.O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together.Ps.33:1-3

I love to Create!!!

Several years ago, I wanted to learn calligraphy. I checked out book after book from the library on the subject. Although I perused each book thoroughly from cover to cover, I didn’t actually practice. On one of these “wishing” exercises, I prayed “Lord, please help me to learn to do calligraphy.”

Before long, as I would have my morning Bible readings, I’d find verses that I thought needed to go up on my walls. After my readings I’d get out my calligraphy pen and write them so that I could pin them to the wall. Well, as time went on, I realized that I had been practicing all those times. Ha ha! God is good!

I learned to do an original form of calligraphy with simple lines and letters that are easy to read. That is how Vintage Verses got its start many years ago. Now, with my computer, printer and scanner, I am able to share these verses with others.

I use hymns from old hymnals and purchase licensing when required. For my calligraphy, I mainly use verses from the Holy Bible. I also add in a little clip art, some non-copyrighted, some original and some from fellow artists. When I use others' art I always try to give the artist credits in my listings.

I design every item I sell. After printing, I inspect and trim each print to size. I still package and ship everything myself but am hoping to have assistance soon because my creating "gene" is moving much faster than my manufacturing abilities can produce.

All shipping of printed cards, photos and art prints is done by first class mail through the United States Postal Service. Items usually ship within 3-5 business days by United States Postal Service first class postage with delivery confirmation. Personalized orders may take longer. Priority postage is available for an additional fee.

The prints and cards are shipped in rigid or padded photo mailers to keep your order in excellent condition as it travels to you. If for some reason you should receive a damaged card or print, please e-mail me as soon as possible so that I can remedy the situation.

Shipping outside of the United States of America is shown in each individual listing.

Priority or Overnight Postage: If by chance your print gets damaged in the mail please keep the shipping package. Any order that is sent by USPS priority or overnight will be replaced after filing a claim with the postal service. This has never happened to me, but it would need to be dealt with this way for insurance purposes.

Additional policies and FAQs

I love to make things especially for YOU!!! Please contact me if there is something special you would like or if you want to have a unique item made just for you.

Almost all of the items you find in can be personalized or customized to fit your needs. All items are sold with the options offered in the listings. If you see an item that you would like to customize with a special verse or a personal message, name, or to commemorate a special occasion or memorial, please contact me before you purchase unless the item is a personalized sample.

If you would like to personalize any verse or hymn, the name and date are included in the personalized sample listings. If you would like other information added, the cost is normally $2.00 per additional line. Personalized orders are usually ready to ship in 1-2 weeks. For an expedited personalization, the wait time is reduced to 3-5 business days and an extra fee may be added.

Because personalizing makes a piece especially for you, it must be pre-paid in full before it will be printed or shipped. There is no refund on personalized pieces because they cannot be re-sold. You will receive a sample of your piece by e-mail so that you can review and approve before it is shipped. Once you approve it, it is yours and will be shipped pronto. There will be no refund made on personalized items.

If you find a photograph or special background in that you would like to add or change the verse on it, please contact me before purchasing. I will make that listing especially for you. If there are any additional charges for the changes, I will let you know ahead of time so that you can make an informed purchase. Thank you!

Note: When ordering a custom piece I want you to be happy! I know sometimes that requires making a sample and sometimes changing your individual piece and making a second sample. This is part of the custom order process. Please note, though, that it would be to your best interest to have in mind exactly what you want before you make that special request. In that regard, having to make a third or fourth sample and so on will cost me time and you money. Only a first and second sample are included in the quoted price for a custom project.
