Announcement    NEW IN MY SHOP FOR MARCH:

• Party Packs with invitation, thank you, sticker, stamp design, mailing label and more
• Easter Marketing and decorations

Welcome to She Dreams In Ink, a creative paradise full of gorgeous designs! My name is Lisa Beavers, and I'm a graphic designer and branding expert with over 30 years experience. My goal is to provide you with gorgeous, creative and vivid design options to color your life with -- at a price that's completely affordable!

My personal opinion is that there are plenty of "blah" products out in the world - they are functional, practical and ... well, not very pretty. Who made the rule that practical couldn't be just as breathtaking gorgeous as art? I've decided to break that rule!!!

Here you'll find practical, functional items like mailing labels - but they are carefully designed and crafted from my creative heart, meant to bring a smile to your lips every single time you use one.

You'll find instant editables (because who has time to order their invitations custom designed a month or two in advance) that you can personalize, download and print within hours. They are all vivid, unique and interesting - no one is going to think you ran down to Walmart at the last minute and bought whatever invitations they happened to have on hand. (Good-bye, mom side-eye!)

You'll find digital paper and alphabets for your scrapbook and design projects, patterns that have been hand-picked and compiled by yours truly.

You'll even find beautiful designs that you can use to print custom postage stamps!!!

And, if you're an Etsy shop owner (howdy, neighbor!), you'll also find a ton of great designs to support your shop - everything from shop banners to social media graphics - for a fraction of the price of a custom design. I dream up everything you see, and create each design myself for maximum impact (and with 30 years experience, I know a lot about impact).

Whether you're trying to create a shop brand or just survive your toddler's party, I'm here for you. Let me save you TIME. Let me save you FRUSTRATION. Let me help you save MONEY. And let me make it GORGEOUS.

I offer templates, personalized and custom formats for:
• Mailing Labels
• Postage Stamp Art
• Invitations
• Stickers
• Digital papers and alphabets
• Calendars and planning tools
• Printables (coming soon) of all types
• Print and design of business cards, labels, stickers, and more!

I'm adding even more awesome things, like bottle labels, tickets, bag toppers, signs, stickers, SVGs, label, certificates, rubber stamp templates, greeting cards and much more over the course of 2019 -- so if you don't see the product you want ASK ME TO MAKE IT!!!

For Shop Owners, I offer personalization and instant downloads:
• Etsy Covers, Banners, Profile Pics and Listing Images
• Customer Appreciation - thank you stickers and cards to help you have happy customers and more reviews!
• Marketing Materials - design and printing of flyers, thank you cards, business cards
• Background Images, SVG files and more
• Custom design by the hour when you need it.

If you don't see what you want -- ASK ME. I want to create what YOU want, and the best way to do that is to have you tell me. It's a kindness to me, really, that helps me help you.

P.S. I can also PRINT your business cards, postcards, invitations, mailing labels, flyers, hanging banners and more for you at great prices with FREE SHIPPING.

About

The world is full of ugly things - I'm on a one-woman mission to balance that with beauty! Won't you join me??

I LOVE LOVE LOVE to create creative, inspired, and sometimes a little 'off the wall' designs. It's practically my superpower!!! (okay, secondary superpower -- my first superpower is being able to drink coffee and then sleep). It absolutely delights my soul to be able to do this work for you, and know that I'm allow you to focus on making and selling gorgeous creations for you.

I'm a graphic designer and high creative, with over 30 years of experience in graphic design and marketing. I've worked in everything from magazine design, direct mail, print shop design, brand development and franchise system development and sales. Over the past year, I realized that I wanted to be free to be more creative, and build a library of digital downloads to help other people market their small businesses. After a great deal of deliberation and back and forth between my MANY personalities, I decided to reach out to Etsy sellers to make marketing and branding their shops easier, faster and less painful.

Currently, I live in the beautiful East Tennessee mountains with my cat Bailey. Some of my favorite things outside of graphic design are naps, beaches, horses, driving very fast down windy roads and tormenting my grown son with stupid IT questions. I'm learning to box, and I've absolutely fallen in love with the sport. It's raw and real and a little bit lonely -- the true fight is you against yourself -- and it's perfect for an INTJ like me. I'm also working hard to bring more technology and awesome design to boxing events!

My other favorite thing to do is write urban fantasy (witches and vampires and werewolves, oh my!). I write under the name Lola Lyons, which is a combination of my mother's maiden name and my childhood family nickname (because what Lola wants, Lola gets).

When I'm not designing, writing or napping, I spend time doing branding consultations and coaching small businesses and entrepreneurs, as well as franchise system development and branding. It sounds a lot more complicated than it is. Basically, i help people understand and create their brand, and help them develop the policies and systems to use it consistently, creatively and professionally -- whether they are a developing franchise system, a "big" business, an entrepreneur or somewhere in-between. It's fun to be part of the beginning of their next stage of growth, just like being part of yours!

What do I use to create my digital masterpieces? Well currently, I'm working on an iMac with a massive screen with mostly Illustrator and Photoshop. I sometimes work on my laptop out of a customers office or a coffee shop. I've been known to use it ringside at boxing matches as well. My favorite design guilty pleasure is Canva. You can upload your own images and then Canva makes it super easy to size, add text, add color and download finalized files for your shop or social media or even PDF files!!!

Bad habits? Coffee, naps, driving very fast down windy country roads and tormenting my grown son with IT questions. If this sounds a lot like the list of my favorite things, that is NOT a coincidence.....

Thanks for visiting my shop, and I hope you found what you were looking for here!

Frequently asked questions
Are these designs one-of-a-kind?

The listings here are definitely one of a kind, made by yours truly. However, that does not make them EXCLUSIVE. One of a kind means that you won't see another Etsy shop selling any of my designs. Non-exclusive means that the listing is re-listed after you purchase it, so it's still available for other shop owners to purchase. Once you add your logo, your name, your fonts and colors, the design will become unique to you.

What other types of products or services do you have?

As a graphic designer, I can do pretty much whatever is needed (I don't do car wraps, that's about it). What's the most unique or most difficult thing I ever designed? I designed an entire BOARD GAME (just the look, not the concept). (wanna peek? check out Success The Game at jaz-ehousegames.com) I'm always adding new listings and new products, so check back often. Or - if you want something but don't see it here, feel free to ask. If it's not something I can make for you, I may be able to tell you a great place to get it!

When should I order template files for the upcoming holiday or season?

If you have a holiday as your deadline, don't wait! Order 6-8 weeks in advance of the holiday. This gives you time to personalize and upload the images, and it gives your customers time to see it and understand/remember that you are doing something special for the holidays. Think about when the stores start putting out displays and sale items for each holiday (except Christmas. Gracious me, but that's done a little early in my book. Stealin' the thunder from Halloween, Thanksgiving AND the 4th of July!)

Can I use these files in my own products to sell?

Remember, this is NOT a situation where "sharing means caring." No designs, content or files created or sold by me may be replicated, re-sold or reproduced without written permission from me. You can use your purchases in your Etsy store and related Etsy marketing/social media/etc. You may not NOT resell them in your Etsy store or anywhere else, unless you have been granted specific written permission. You may NOT share your purchases with other sellers or people for their use in any manner.

PS - when you see the category FOR COMMERCIAL USE (coming soon!) the products in that specific category can be used on or in products you create to sell.

What is a template and how do I use it?

My instant downloads are templates - high-quality, high resolution files perfectly sized for an Etsy shop - but without any words. By that, I mean your shop name or other information isn't in it -- it's blank.

You can take the template into ANY design software (Canva, PicMonkey, Photoshop, Illustrator, Gimp, CorelDraw, Inkscape to name just a few) and add whatever you want to it - your shop name, sale information, a holiday or vacation message or even pictures of your products!

Each template is re-usable. If you decide tomorrow that you need to breakup with the typeface you fell in love with yesterday (it happens), you can simply change it without having to re-purchase the original.

I don't know how to personalize the file. Can you do it for me?

Yes, of course. And for those of you who know how but don't have the time, it's still okay to ask for personalization!

PS - I am in the middle of transitioning most of my items so they will be easy and fast for you to personalize in Corjl, without having to learn or download any special software!

Can you just design my whole brand for me?

Absolutely! I can design anything you like. Check the custom order section to find the listing that best fits your needs. If you don't see the package you want, message me and we'll create one. Custom listings go through a proofing and approval process before the final files are sent to you.

Updates to custom listings after approval do incur additional charges; however, I keep all customer files safely archived so I will have your original files to work with (I'm just OCD that way). They don't go away just because your order is finished and approved.

What's your refund policy?

Except under certain special circumstances, I cannot do refunds. Design is a personal process and you can't return digital files like a physical purchase. Thanks for your understanding in this.

How do I find you on social media? I'd like to learn more about branding!

I love, love love to help people learn about marketing and branding. They look like big scary monsters, but if you pet them, they turn into kittens and puppies (cute, smell good, occasionally a little destructive but nobody's perfect).

I don't see what I'm looking for... how do I get it?

Message me with what you're looking for and we'll go from there. Sometimes you might need a little custom work - but sometimes I have something waiting in the wings that might be just perfect.
