Dedicated to the magical art of letter writing

I would imagine my love of snail mail began when, at the age of six, I slipped a small scrap of paper inside a balloon and sent it off into the clouds. My tiny note sailed from Dearborn, Michigan to Cleveland, Ohio and into the hands of a dear couple who shared my love of pen and ink. Homer and Doris would soon become my pen pals, my confidants and my family. My youngest is named after Doris.

When I had my first daughter, I combined my love of art and computers with my love of snail mail and began sending milestone cards. These cards were announcements of all that my tinybear was up to. From first steps to eating her first banana, they were all amazing accomplishments that I felt our friends and family would enjoy. These cards soon blossomed into designing baby announcements and shower invitations for friends and then friends of friends.

Seven years later, I have a small brick and mortar in Huntsville, AL and my artwork has reached all over the United States, Canada, Europe and into Australia. My passion for texture and ink has made a mark and I am thrilled to be a graphic artist who is dedicated to the magical art of letter writing.

I am so thankful for your support and business! 5% of my sales each month are donated to a non-profit. You can read more about our donations at

    Ace & Bear formed out of my love of snail mail and graphic art. I have dedicated my adult life to preserving the magical art of letter writing. Old letters are important, they tell a story- of family, religion, education and yes, even romance.

Returns and exchanges
Printable Orders - There are no refunds on Printables. Once you receive your design/proof, which is a high resolution file, I cannot provide a refund.

Digital Downloads - There are no refunds on Digital Downloads. Once you download your high resolution file, I cannot provide a refund.

Print orders - If you receive your preview proof and decide you do not want me to print your order, you can request a refund, however, $15 of your order will not be refunded to cover my time on your order. Once you approve the order and printing has started, no refunds will be made.

I do my very best to make sure your design and text is correct. However, you MUST review your proof. I recommend printing it out on your home printer and viewing it as well as letting at least two additional people proof it.

If you approve a proof that has incorrect text or misspellings, I cannot be responsible for that. Mistakes happen on both ends, please really review your design proof as I cannot issue a refund for errors that were approved.
I accept PayPal, Personal Checks and Credit Cards.
PayPal payments should be received within 48 hours of purchase.

Gift Certificates purchased for are not valid in the Etsy store.
It seems that most people shopping on Etsy want a jpeg of their card so there is rarely any shipping required. However, if there is, I ship via USPS Priority Mail, Fed Ex as well as UPS.
