About

Hi, I'm Nancy. And I'm miss pok-a-dot.

Funny name right? Yes, I know it's spelled wrong (I get that question a lot). I'm not sure where the spelling, or even the name comes from. I'm a graphic designer and while I was working (in the real world), it seems most of the things I designed ended up being round or the layout was spherical or something in an orbital shape. So when I decided it was high time to turn my invitation hobby into a for-reals business, the name just sort of came to me. And it stuck. Sometimes I think of changing it to something more hip, but now we are one and the same, so I gotta keep her.

Anyway, so I went to school and got that BFA. I am completely obsessed with anything in the design world; print, packaging, interior... I love it all. I have a calling and a passion to create! I officially launched miss pok-a-dot in 2008 at the National Stationery Show in NYC. At first my stuff sold exclusively to the trade, like in shops all over the country. I even got all fancy and miss pok-a-dot was sold at Neiman Marcus and Horchow (boom!). But when I decided I'd like to sell my own products, naturally etsy and I were a match made in heaven.

My style is a whole lotta preppy, a little bit o' southern and just a tad quirky. I like to call it "sophisticated fun". My favorite color is green, and my favorite color combo is pink, green and navy. I love patterns, especially stripes. Oh yeah... and polka dots. Enjoy!

Frequently asked questions

What's your turnaround time?

Turnaround times vary depending on current order load. Please refer to the shop announcement/header on my shop's main page for up-to-date timing. Most proofs are sent in 2 days.

What kind of files will I receive?

You will receive a single-image JPEG and a PDF with 2 per 8.5" x 11" page.

What does "standard", "pearl" and "premium" mean?

Those refer to the types of paper I offer for my printed invitations.

Standard: smooth, matte card stock perfect for all invitation types and a go-to standard.

Pearl: shimmery, slightly metallic card stock that adds just a little something extra

Premium: heavyweight, cotton stock with a lovely subtle tactile feel

Are envelopes included with my printed invitation order?

Yes! White envelopes are included with all standard printed orders. Pearl orders have pearl envelopes, premium orders have cotton envelopes. Some colored envelopes are available for an upcharge. Please convo me for options.

Can I change the wording?

Absolutely! As long as it fits, all wording can be changed to suit your needs for no extra charge. If you have any question about whether something will fit or not, I'd be happy to look at your wording prior to purchase.

Can I add a photo to my invitation?

Sure thing! You can add it to the back or I can change the orientation and make it a horizontal layout. To add a photo, please purchase this make-a-change listing: https://www.etsy.com/listing/187276443/make-a-change-to-any-item-in-the-shop?ref=shop_home_feat_4

Will there be anything on the back of the invitation?

Yes. Whether your invitation has a back design or not, all printed orders come with my logo and web address printed on the back, at the bottom.

How does the glitter look when it's printed?

The "glitter" on some of my items is a hi-resolution image of glitter. It will not be raised or sparkly like real glitter. It will print like a hi-res photo, just like it appears on your screen.
