Quirky fun to acknowledge feline Dads. Thanks for using recyclable packaging.

Contemporary design and perfect for a newer Dad. Like the very simplistic black and white color choice.

First time buyer, and perfectly satisfied. The card was exactly as described, and the printing is perfectly crisp and colorful. Shipped quickly and arrived without damage. Would definitely recommend and repurchase!
Paper Goods + Gifts, all made by me!
Hey, thanks for stopping by!
If you were in my studio with me now, you'd likely catch me laughing to myself (too much actually) while writing cards and drawing designs to match. I'm a list-maker so while chatting with you I'm likely to write down a funny idea or two, which is easy to do with all the paper around here! I'd likely explain my favourite Netflix obsession, let you play with my adorable 10-year old dog, Darby, or my puppy, Sullivan, or show you pics of the lake where I spend most of my free time!
I have a background in graphic design and while working at a steady corporate job during the day, I opened my Etsy shop as a way to be more creative with my designs in my off-hours. Three years later I quit-my-day-job and now I dedicate all my time to what I love to do most!
I love working with clients, and pride myself on prompt communication, clear timeframes and outstanding designs that are only outweighed by a smooth design process from start to finish. I welcome custom designs, and local consultations are available - just send me a message!
My designs are all printed locally and I work with a great company that is as meticulous with details as I am. I am currently expanding on my line of cards and will be introducing a new line of products soon! All of my cards and select prints are available on Etsy Wholesale. If you are interested in carrying my line, please send me a message and I will get back to you right away! For a more behind-the-scene look at what I'm up to, follow along with me on Instagram at www.instagram.com/merrilydesigns.
When I'm not designing, I love helping fellow makers live their daydream. I co-pilot the Etsy Waterloo Region team, hosting two Etsy shows a year - one in the Spring, and one in the winter. I also organize a number of workshops and team events. I work closely with Etsy Canada as an Etsy Mentor Me Coach and Etsy Resolution Program Mentor. I live in Kitchener, Ontario with my loving husband (he loves the animals most though, let's be honest), and work from my studio in my family's home that my husband and I purchased when we were married! That about sums me up.
Hey there! I'm Erin. I graduated from Wilfrid Laurier University and Fanshawe College, and after years of working in Corporate design, started my own line of stationery. I opened up Merrily Designs and the rest is history! Thanks for stopping by!
The Local Print Shop
I have been working with this shop for nine years, while I worked in corporate design and since I opened my own shop on Etsy. They are the friendliest group and as diligent on timing and quality as I am.
