About Designs With Sass
Designs With Sass is a small, graphic design business, locally owned and operated in Calvert County, Southern Maryland. My favorite items to design are bridal shower, baby shower and birthday invitations, along with re-usable activity mats for kids.
For years I've been designing photo posters and party invitations for friends and family, but it wasn't until recently that I decided to sell my work online.
Faith, family and graphic design are my three greatest passions in life. Thankfully, I can combine all of these elements in my work. Divided up in my shop are different sections featuring various categories of which I love to design.
In the area of Faith, I've created Inspirational and Encouraging Scripture Verse Postcards. Reading these uplifting verses keeps me going when my soul grows weary. I know I'm not the only one who needs a bit of encouragement from time to time, so I figured others could be blessed by an uplifting word—when a loved one sends them a reminder via postcard.
The second most important area of my life is my Family (and friends, too). For the past few years, I've created Photo Collage Posters for different loved ones in my life. My subject matter has varied from old photos of my grandparents to more recent ones of our family vacation at the beach. These gifts are always well received—and sometimes even bring a few tears to the eyes of my recipients. Its designs like these that keep our most cherished memories at the forefront of our minds and hearts. They're also some of my most favorite works to create.
The third most important area in my life is my passion for Design. I can't say enough how blessed I am to go to a job feeling joyful every morning. No amount of money can compare to being in a career that you truly love. Because of my passion for people, I love to design pieces like a friend's Baby/Bridal Shower Invitation, a small business owner's Marketing Brochure or an up-and-coming author's eBook Cover. I want to help people succeed, and part of that is helping their event, business or personal dreams stand out from the rest.
We live in a "take it at face-value" society. It's my goal to not only make myself look good, but to make you look better. I want whatever project I design for you to stop people in their tracks and make them smile.
I hope you take a moment to browse what I have to offer. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions, or have a special design request. Please, keep checking back in my shop for new designs and offerings.
I consider myself a "family-friendly" designer. Please keep that in mind when ordering custom work.
Have fun browsing my shop. I hope you enjoy what you see. Let's work together soon! =)

Refunds and Exchanges
All instant download orders are FINAL. Because these items are immediately available for download once purchased, a refund cannot be issued.
Custom items you print yourself
Most items have 'Printing Instructions' included in their description. Please consider those tips when sending your digital file to the printer. The files I send are all high-res and ready-to-print. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND printing your files at a professional printing shop. At-home printer's ink costs a lot of money, and their paper soaks up a lot of ink. You will SAVE MONEY in the long run by printing your items outside of the home using a professional laser printer.
Because of the custom nature of my work, all orders are final and non-refundable. Each customer will receive a watermarked PDF file of each item they've purchased—this is considered the 'Approval Process'. Once "approved", I will assume that the item has been carefully looked over for errors in spelling, grammar or subject matter. Then, the sale will be considered "final".
**NOTE** Customers will have up to 3 days to "approve" their watermarked proof. If a customer does not respond within the 3 day window, I will consider the item "approved" and it will move into the shipment process.
Damage During Shipment
I package my items so that they will be received in perfect condition. However, I understand that sometimes "life happens" and a product may be damaged during shipment. If this happens to you, I will offer a FULL REFUND once the item is mailed back to me.
Because, I want all of my clients to be completely satisfied with their orders, if there is a problem of any sort, please do not hesitate to contact me and I will be happy to work with you to find the best solution possible.
