Announcement    Welcome to dodidoodles! 90% of my inventory can be downloaded and printed within minutes of purchase! Why are digital files great? They come from the same file that I would use if I were to print and ship the item to you, but we can help to minimize our carbon footprint by skipping on the chipboard, cello sleeve, cardboard mailer, and gas for the delivery truck!!! When you print on your end, not only do you save money, but you help give the Earth a little hug!!!

“Our ability to handle life’s challenges is a measure of our strength of character.”~ Les Brown

I never intended to become a graphic designer. But somewhere all along it was hidden inside of me. I was always the kid who loved to color and draw, and used four or five shades to color in an area where the other kids would color in one. If it was someone's birthday, I would rather make them a card instead of buy them one. I excelled in art class, but never really felt like I was an artist like the other labeled "artists" in the class.

I went on to pursue a career in music-something I also excelled at-and spent many years playing the piano professionally and also teaching others to play. Although playing satisfied me in a soulful way, it never felt like meaningful work to me.

About 7 years ago I found myself at a crossroads in my life. Many people close to me had passed away in a short period of time, and I had gone through a long, painful divorce. I was a single mom to two young children and was feeling lost and needing to make a better income. At the same time I had a friend who was trying to learn how to use a variety of computer programs. In trying to help them research and learn, I taught myself (and fell in love with) Photoshop and Illustrator.

At the time, another friend mentioned taking scans of original artwork and offering giclee prints to sell on Etsy. I did this for a very short time when I heard of Instant Downloads. When I realized I could put my graphic design skills to work and offer it to people instantly, I was more than interested. I wanted to find a niche market and started searching around. I realized that my love of typography was absent from the market. Having seen so many cute wedding signs, I searched Etsy to see if wedding sign downloads were available. At the time there were only around 26. I spent that whole night designing wedding signs and never looked back. Since then I have provided signage to almost 40,000 weddings and hope to provide them for 40,000 more.

Being on Etsy has allowed me to have a career while living a dream I didn't know I had. The success of my shop has allowed me to pursue other passions, like creating fonts, and in 2017 I created the first ever fully installable SVG watercolor font. It was a huge moment in my life both personally and professionally, and I feel overwhelmed with gratitude to get up and do what I love every single day.

I believe in giving the highest level of customer service I can to every customer that enters my shop. Having started my business during a low point in my life, I also believe in offering all of my designs at the fairest price possible. I don't believe that someone's budget should have to impact their ability to enjoy beautiful, quality items around them. And in fact, I believe that having beautiful things around you can inspire you to live a better life and give more to those around you.

Frequently asked questions
When and where will I receive my customized file?

Personalized orders (i.e Hashtag, Name, & Dance Floor Rules Printables) will be shipped to your personal e-mail within 1-2 business days (not consecutive calendar days) of purchase. They will not be available for download here on Etsy. To ensure your order can be processed as soon as possible, please include all necessary information at checkout (i.e. hashtag choice, names, etc.) If you do not provide the necessary information, your 1-2 day delivery window will start once the information has been provided. For example, if you order on January 2, but do not provide your hashtag until April 2, then your 1-2 day delivery window would begin in April, not January.

Can I request changes to Instant Download files?

Instant Download files will only download in the format listed-as seen in the listing picture. They are pre-loaded into the Etsy system and therefore any notes you write in the "notes to seller" at purchase will not change the file you receive.

If you like an Instant Download file, but would prefer a slight modification, please feel free to checkout my Custom Section for options.

What is the best paper for me to print my file on?

For printing, I recommend a high quality digital paper, cotton paper, high poundage art paper, or high quality photo paper. If you are using card stock, please use the highest quality possible, as inexpensive card stock can really dull the appearance of the best looking graphic design.

For glittery/sparkly/gold printing, I recommend a shimmer, pearl, or high gloss photo paper to enhance the shine.

Help! My file printed on 3 pages...what do I do??

When printing, please avoid hitting "print" or "print page"-this will make your printer default to a full letter page and try to compensate the missing space of the 8x10 or 5x7 files, resulting in multiple page printing. Instead, go into your advanced printer settings and manually select "8x10" or "8x10 borderless" or "5x7" "5x7 borderless" as your printing size. In most cases, this will solve the printing issue.

My file seems pixelated, or the printer told me it was low resolution...why?

Please be assured that all designs and files are 300 dpi high resolution, and created on professional software. Please be sure to make sure that you have actually downloaded your file and are not working with the preview image. Also, I recommend to download all files onto a computer or laptop, not your phone or iPad. For best results, download the file to your computer, save to a flash drive, and carry the flash drive into the store with you. Files directly printed from phones to print labs have a high margin of error and customer disappointment.

Why didn't I receive a proof?

The only items in my shop that require customer approval are from scratch, brand new designs. Unless you are ordering a completely new design from me, no proof will be sent. If you are ordering a personalized design, you will get the design shown with your information in place of the display information.

What happens when information isn't received for personalized orders?

My delivery time for personalized orders already listed in the shop is 1-2 business days ONLY when information is sent when order is purchased. All customers all highly encouraged to have their customization information finalized BEFORE purchase. If I have to contact you to ask for it or you send it along separately, your 1-2 business day window will begin WHEN THE INFORMATION IS RECEIVED. If I cannot contact you for 7 days past your order date and have no customization information, I will automatically refund/cancel your order so that I can keep my shop current. Please feel free to reorder when you have your custom information finalized.

How long does it take to receive a custom order?

Timeframes for brand new from scratch custom orders will vary on communication with the customer and intensity of the project. In all situations, all work is created and delivered as quickly as possible. If you know you are in need of custom work, please contact me as soon as possible so that our transaction is relaxed in nature.

WHY would I want a digital file and not a print in the mail???

Why are digital files great? They come from the same file that I would use if I were to print and ship the item to you, but we can help to minimize our carbon footprint by skipping on the chipboard, cello sleeve, cardboard mailer, and gas for the delivery truck!!! When you print on your end, not only do you save money, but you help give the Earth a little hug!!!
