Magic by Marcy
It all started with a favor for a friend...I designed my daughters birth announcements using an online design company and it just wasn't what I was wanting. A few months later when my good friend had her baby she asked me to design a birth announcement. When I showed her the finished project she said it was magical...exactly what she had envisioned, she told me I should open up a store and share my designs....and Magic by Marcy was born. I enjoy bringing my creative visions to life through invitations, web design, educational curriculum design. Etsy has been a great platform to connect me to so many wonderful customers. My repeat customers feel like family, some I have designed birth announcements, Christening announcements, birthday invites, Christmas cards and so much more. I get the privilege of watching their children grow through photos and being a part of their special events...which is truly magical to me.
I am a creative spirit who loves to design. I am a mommy to a beautiful 6 year old little girl, and a spirited 3 year old boy, in my spare time I love to create and design announcements and invitations for all of life's unique occasions.

Frequently asked Questions............................................
*What supplies are needed to print at home?
You will need card stock or photo paper, a printer, envelopes and a paper trimmer or scissors.
*I'm not very computer savvy, is it easy to print at home?
In order to print, all you have to do is print the digital file like a photo on 4 x 6 or 5 x 7 paper.
*Can I bring this file to my favorite photo center, like Target or Wal-Mart?
The files are designed to print just like photos.You can save it to your flash drive or upload it to their site and bring it to a photo center.
*Why do the colors look different on the screen compared to when I print the invitations?
Colors will vary depending on your monitor settings and the way your file is printed. I recommend using www.mpix.com for printing because their printing quality is superb.
*Can you send me a proof before I order?
Each order is custom and It takes time for me to design each card and personalize it with your photos and text. Proofs are only sent after the item is ordered and paid for. Once you receive the proof the first two changes are complimentary. Any additional changes needed ( ex. change of time, location etc.) will be charged $4 per change needed. Please proofread your text carefully and send it to me just as you would like it printed. File resize requests (from 5 x 7" to 4 x 6") require basically redesigning the card. There will be a charge of $5 for this. Please review your order before submitting and be sure to include your size.
*Where can I buy envelopes and what size do I need?
I recommend using www.envelopes.com for custom envelopes. They offer all sizes and colors. You can also find envelopes at your local ofice supply store.

Designs that are meant to be doublesided will be formatted to a 5.25X7.25 and it is recommended you print at www.mpix.com on their doublesided cardstock (linen, pearl, stock, gloss, recycled). They have very competitive prices and envelopes are included.
I recommend printing onto cardstock paper ( found at walmart or an office supply store. Just insert the image into word document and drag the corners to resize as needed, then print.
