About AmaVitaDesigns

Sales 3,259
On Etsy since 2015

Ama Vita is a beautiful Italian phrase that simply means, “Love Life.”

My business was opened in July 2015 after life took some unexpected twists and turns. I have always been drawn to the world of party planning, the concepts of celebration, and the execution of excitement. I also have a streak of practicality within me which drove me to an Ivy League school and then into the financial world of private equity. Even as a number cruncher I found a way to sneak graphic design into my career; I created templates and business presentations that actually inspired the design of my own wedding invitations! Things change, as they often do, and suddenly I found myself facing a cancer diagnosis. I was told that if I wanted to have a baby that I needed to do it as soon as possible, and so I did, having my son and moving forward with my new life. Despite the sudden surprises I always remained close to the art of graphic design. When I found I could no longer handle the long days of investment banking, I could revel in the joys of graphic design. Even when the symptoms were flaring up I was able to not only assist others with striking imagery, but I could create it with a style that was all my own. Now more than ever I realize the importance of my business and the need to celebrate life each and every day.

Ama Vita (the business, not the phrase) offers a wide variety of downloadable content such as invitations, baby shower games, and holiday printables. By offering downloadable alternatives to your party planning needs I am offering you unique designs at an affordable price and the flexibility to print at home or through a professional printer. While the majority of my products are generic (in the sense they can be used over and over again saving you time and money), I do also offer custom orders and love working with people. Whether you decide upon a custom order or something from my current inventory they offer you convenience. You can print your product on regular card stock or full sheet labels to save money, Avery products for the semi-DIYer that would prefer to minimize cutting time, or even Vistaprint to save yourself the time of both printing and cutting.

My signature product, and a personal favorite, is my Wishes and Advice and Wishes and Wisdom cards. These templates allow you and your friends to share their happy wishes, wisdom and advice for a variety of events including weddings and baby showers. This is an amazing alternative to the traditional guestbook and the overflowing amounts of cards you might get elsewhere, and can be easily used in scrapbooking. From a practical perspective (I warned you I combine practicality with sheer creativity), my favorite product is the wraparound address labels. They add a clean and polished look to any invitation and are an easily downloaded (and editable) PDF.

Welcome to Ama Vita Designs! The goal of this shop is to help you plan stylish celebrations with less stress. "Ama vita" is an Italian command to "love life" and that is what I want to help you do. This has become my motto since being surprised with a cancer diagnosis on my first wedding anniversary. I am now combining my business presentation work with my passion for parties in hopes that I can help others love life and all of its celebrations.

VIEWING FILES
If you don't have Adobe Reader to open the PDF files, you can download it free at www.adobe.com.

SAVING AND DOWNLOADING FILES
Simply save/download the file to your computer (click on attachment{s} to open, right click, save as), USB flash drive or disk. From there you can print to your home computer, upload to an online printing vendor or take into a printing vendor to have printed for you.

COMMON DOWNLOAD ISSUE FOR CELL PHONE & TABLET USERS
Please keep in mind that cell phone and tablet providers tend to condense/reduce attachments/files sizes. My recommendation is to upload/download the file(s) from a computer to eliminate this issue.

COLOR VARIATION
Colors may vary from one computer monitor to another, quality of printer used as well as the many different types or brands of paper and ink you're printing with. Ama Vita Designs is not responsible for the resulting color variations due to the many variables involved.

USE OF FILES
Because all files are digital, you can print as many copies as you'd like from home or a photo lab. (No printed materials will be mailed to you.) Please note all items are for PERSONAL USE ONLY. File sharing sharing, distributing, or selling the designs, or ANY elements within them, in any other format including templates, websites, brochures, advertising or on any products is strictly prohibited. When purchasing a product you agree to use the designs for personal use only. Commercial use is not allowed.

Frequently asked questions
Can you print this for me?

Absolutely! You can add prints to your order by purchasing a listing here:
https://www.etsy.com/shop/AmaVitaDesigns?section_id=20350400

How many cards are included?

This listing is for a digital file and no physical cards will be sent to you. If you would like physical cards, please message me with the information above.

What type of paper should I use?

No special paper is needed - what you see is how the files will print on white card stock. All background colors are included as part of the design. I recommend the heaviest compatible with your printer and brighter is always better.

How do I print two cards per page?

Simply print the “two per page” file. It is already set up with two cards on one 8.5”x11” page and trim lines to show you where to cut them to size. As always, make sure to print at 100% or actual size, not scale to page, fit, shrink to fit or anything along those lines.

What does “full bleed” mean?

“Full bleed” simply means that there is an extra 1/8” of design on each edge of the card (so a finished 5”x7” card’s design measures 5.25”x7.25”). This is to allow for slight variances in printer calibrations, movement of paper and trimming while ensuring the design continues to the edge without a blank gap.

Why aren’t my cards printing as the correct size?

Make sure to print at 100% or actual size, not scale to page, fit, shrink to fit or anything along those lines as those will distort the cards and their dimensions.

How can I print double sided cards without a double-sided printer?

Take a blank piece of paper and write “top left” in the top left corner and place it in your paper tray with the writing still in the top left corner, facing up. Do a test print (it can be a simple document that says “test”) to see how your printer pulls paper through. Print the number of copies that you need of just the first page, remove the prints, turn them based on your test print and feed them through again to print just the second page.

The first two labels line up correctly but the others don’t… help!!

Make sure to print at 100% or actual size, not scale to page, fit, shrink to fit or anything along those lines as those will distort the labels and their alignment.
