About

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

Welcome to my little slice of heaven. My Etsy shop is the realization of a long time dream to create things I love for a living. Ever since I was very small, pens, paper and crayons were always my toys of choice. I never wavered in my childhood dream to become a graphic designer and one day create my own line of stationery and invitations.

I graduated from design school in 2000 and began my career as a designer in children's advertising. After deciding to stay home full time to raise my children, I got to work creating miss pok-a-dot. The line officially launched at the National Stationery Show in NYC in 2008. Initially I sold exclusively to the trade in shops across the country and to online retailers such as Horchow and Neiman Marcus. But when I decided I'd like to sell my own products, naturally Etsy and I were a match made in heaven. My shop opened here in 2012 and I've never looked back!

I grew up in the deep south and currently live with my husband, 3 kiddos and our black lab in Louisville, KY. As a result, my style is a whole lotta preppy, a little bit o' southern and just a tad quirky. 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?

Proofs are sent 2 days after purchase; 7 days a week! For digital items, final files are emailed within 12-24 hours after proof approval. Print orders ship 2 business days after proof approval. (Please keep in mind there is no printing or shipping on the weekends). Shipping usually takes about 2-3 business days

How do I know which file type to choose?

The type of file you select depends on how you intend to print your order. Here are some helpful guidelines:

printing at home: PDF- 2 per 8.5x11
printing at a a copy center (examples: Kinko's): PDF- 2 per 8.5x11
printing online (example: shutterfly): JPEG
printing at a photo kiosk or lab (examples: Walgreens): JPEG
Costco: JPEG
Sam's: JPEG
Printing using a "create your own" invitation template: JPEG

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. This is the most fabulous option for my designs with glitter or foil effects.

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 printed orders. The envelopes will be made of the same paper as the type of invitation you choose.

Can I change the wording on the invitations?

Absolutely! Love a shower invite but need it for a birthday? How about a birthday invite for a rehearsal dinner? Not a problem!

If you need to add a lot more wording or completely change all of it, please send it to me prior to purchase. I'd be happy to look at your wording and let you know if it will work with the design.

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 send a photo, please use the camera/attach photo icon on the bottom right of an etsy conversation.

Help! I'm in a big hurry. Do you offer rush options?

Yes I do! You can rush the proof or the shipping. Keep in mind that purchasing one of these options does not rush the other. If you are in need of your order super quickly, I recommend purchasing both options: https://www.etsy.com/shop/misspokadot?section_id=18997214

How does the glitter/foil print?

Think of the glitter or foil effect as any high-res image. On printed invitations, it will not be raised or metallic but will appear like a photo of glitter, much like it does on your screen. For best results I recommend purchasing my pearl paper option. If you are purchasing the digital file, I recommend printing with a professional print company.

Why does VistaPrint have it's own file set-up option?

VistaPrint uses non-standard sizing. If you intend to print there, please select this option so I know to set up your files to work with their specs.
