My now-departed Old Faithful atop my new beast and friend. Shop reopening soon!
Over 10% of first quarter's proceeds went to charity: water. THANK YOU to all my art patrons! Next up: International Justice Mission, now through August giftearth_americasheart


Farthermore Means Going Farther and Doing More Good

After many years designing for organizations and missions outside of myself, I decided to start a shop where I could:

1) Apply my skills to something meaningful through
2) Designing objects that bring joy and foster deeper connections to those that interact with it and
3) Create a natural opportunity for different people to partner together to make a positive impact at the same time by
4) Committing 10% of all purchases (beyond my personal giving, pre-shipping and taxes), to a charity:
JAN-APR: charity: water
MAY-AUG: International Justice Mission
SEP-DEC: Wildlife Conservation Network: Elephant Crisis Fund

Every detail of what I make, from concept to execution, has been carefully considered, and I am proud to report the following eco-conscious efforts in my approach:
• All white envelopes are made from 100% post-consumer recycled content
• All clear sleeves are 100% plant-based and certified compostable by the Biodegradable Products Institute and DIN Certco, and are USPS approved
• Cards are designed to maximize both the printed area and the remaining paper area so that the latter has a higher potential for use in another project
• Kraft rigid envelopes for shipping card orders are made from 80% recycled content
• Additional measures are described on the individual product's page

I especially enjoy making custom designs, so if you see something you like but would like to modify it to your needs, OR if you have a completely new project in mind and think we may be a good fit, please send me a message!

Hello! I aim to make every interaction a positive person-to-person connection. To that end, please be patient with this one-woman show as I figure out any kinks, unexplored scenarios, or extenuating circumstances. I'm trying my best to leave you a happy (and returning) customer!

Accepted payment methods

Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
  • Other Method
Returns and exchanges
Refund requests must be made 30 days from purchase.

Custom orders cannot be refunded once made, but I will give you the opportunity to review the design first on pieces over $50 to make sure you are pleased before shipping.

Thank you for your understanding!
At this time, payment is through Paypal's processing to minimize the fees and lower the costs of what I offer.

NY BUYERS: please be aware Etsy does not always calculate the proper sales tax rate, so there may be some back and forth with refunding/charging a couple cents extra once accurate tax rates for your address are confirmed. I wish it were easier but Etsy + NY have not worked out their complicated tax calculation system to work together! Thank you for understanding =)

NYC BUYERS: Direct message me to see if we can meet up in person and cut out shipping costs for you. If the schedules can work I'll give you a custom listing to get free shipping. I love meeting the people who feel my paper goods resonated with them!
I ship cards by USPS in a rigid kraft envelope to limit the chances of them getting bent. This format is considered a "first-class parcel" by USPS, and are estimated to take up to 5 business days from time of shipment. Please take this + processing time of up to 2 business days into consideration when making your purchase if your needs are time sensitive. Thank you!

For those who wish to purchase more than one card, I can create a custom listing for 2-3 cards for the flat rate of shipping one card ($2.75), or up to 12 cards (dependent on weight of cards ordered) for the flat rate of $3.75. Over 12 cards will be more according to their weight. Please contact me first before purchasing to create a custom listing with this custom estimate!

Custom orders will always have shipping insurance purchased with it since these are special and hard to replace items.
Additional policies and FAQs
Because I aim to give 10% of my sales to charities, I follow up with the people who purchased that quarter to let them know the total amount donated to the cause. I only do this once for every quarter you make a purchase and will not contact you for any other reason! If you prefer NOT to be notified this one time, please let me know in the notes! Thank you for partnering with me to support me and these charities!
