About Vivo4U

On Etsy since 2020

Hello everyone!

Briefly about me:
• graphic designer
• amateur photographer
• pottery maker in the past
• food blogger (most of recipes are for celiacs like me)
• soap maker

I’m working as a graphic designer since 1987 and I think I was born for this job because since I was a kid, I used to draw my own greeting cards, craft my own gift boxes and even make paper furniture and other things for my dolls. And of course, I’m the graphic designer for the items in my shop.

I’m also a wife and mother of two little boys (they are not so little now – born in 2004 & 2005- but I will always have them like my little boys).

Photography is closely connected with my job but it has also been my early hobby. I had my first camera at the age of 5 because my father was a photographer. So Ι started shooting photos very early. I took part at 3 group photography exhibitions. You can have a look at my photos on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/vivo_photos/

In 2017 I started my food blog as a need to record my very successful gluten free recipes for celiacs. Take a look at www.vivoglutenfree.com (although it will "literally" be all Greek to you!). I was diagnosed with celiac disease in June 2014 and for several months, everything I was cooking with gluten free flour was going directly to garbage bin. When I started to succeed with a recipe, I began to write it down. And for that I made my first recipe cart, so to have them organized. And that’s what I am presenting to you! Most of my designs are for cooking and kitchen because this is my favorite place in the house. After all I’m Greek, so everything has to do with food. We socialize with food and almost all family and relatives meetings are around of a big table with lots of food, eating, drinking, laughing and dancing.

In March 2019 I’ve started home, hand making soaps with Greek olive oil. In a coming listing you will find some of them.

My father, besides being a photographer, was also collecting numerous things and used to build things from any material he had. Actually, I think I inherited my craft making skills from him. In October 2017 he passed away and left behind 2 rooms full of many things he used to collect, some of which you will see at the vintage department of my shop here.

I hope you enjoy my shop. I will keep coming back with new ideas I come up with or with new items I find in my father’s rooms.

PS: I started design for my shop on Etsy from July 2019 but I didn’t have the time to open it. Now, March 2020, cause of the corona virus situation, I’m staying home and cooking a lot, trying new recipes. And because this is a global situation, I think most of people cook more trying new recipes and want to keep the good ones, so I decide to open it, finally, to help people to organise and keep their good recipes!!!

I have to thank Anna for pushing me since June 2018 to open it. She is on Etsy since 2010. So, take a look at her shop https://www.etsy.com/shop/Inmyc

Thank you for reading my story.
Have a great day!

Thanks for visiting!

Frequently asked questions
Will you ship this product to me?

NO, simply because this is a 100% digital product, Instant download files, after your payment is processed with Etsy you can retrieve your file/files under your account under purchases. Or you will see a link after your payment is confirmed and you'll be able to download immediately - YES IMMEDIATELY - after purchasing.
No physical item will be mailed. You can print this file at home or at any local print shop

By offering digital downloads like this allows me to serve all my worldwide customers super easily, saving you precious money and you’ll save also time because you don’t have to wait for mailing and shipping.

What does Instant Download mean?

Etsy has set up its website for shop owners to list digital items as instant downloads. I am able to upload a ready-made file/files onto the Etsy website and that is all I have to do. Etsy does all the work for me. I usually don't see those orders as they go into a completed order folder within my shop. I never see any comments to seller on those orders either. A customer can order the listing and retrieve the file as soon as their payment clears thru Etsy. You will find the file under your account, under purchases and it is there you should see a link to save to your computer. I believe Etsy sends you a email also.

Does this shop offer printing services?

No, I do not offer printing services for any of my items. My shop is just for digital files only. I do my own printing at a local digital printing store. There are other office supply stores that offer printing services, please check local office supply stores or an online printing website.

Does this shop offer custom orders?

Yes, I do custom orders sometimes. If you like the design, but prefer a different color, or if you would like a completely custom designed printable, please message me as I would be happy to create for you! I do charge extra money to do a custom order. The price depends on how much work is involved in designing the piece.

Can you personalize an instant download listing?

I charge extra for personalizing any file. If you see a listing which is an instant download please contact me first if you want to personalize that item. I will make a special listing for you to purchase that has the extra charge. I will customize the file for you and then email the file to you.

Must I purchase the listing before you do the work?

Yes, I am often asked to do something different or special to a file. Either change the color, rearrange the wording, add two names, etc.
I can usually do anything as I design all of my items.
My Etsy shop is a money making business and I ask that you pay before I do any of the work. It's that old quote - Time is money
In the past I did a few requests/samples without the money first and then the person never ordered. So sorry folks, if I spend the time on something I want to be paid.

Custom and personalised orders

My shop is instant download so turn around time is instant after your payment clears thru Etsy. I do personalize and that turn around time is 24 to 48 hours. I do not work on Sundays or major holidays. You will find a post “vacation days” within my shop info section.
