Shelby was amazing to work with and very quick to respond. She made a stunning wedding suite for me after months of searching for the perfect one and I couldn't be happier. They look even more stunning printed than they do on the computer.

About

Falling in Love with Weddings

My love for design began with yearbook in high school. I was part of the yearbook staff freshman through senior year and eventually became the senior editor! This experience inspired me to study graphic design in college.

I attended college at University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee. While in school, I began freelance designing and worked at various jobs in the Milwaukee wedding scene. I fell more and more in love with weddings and the people that make them happen.

In 2014, I graduated with a Fine Arts degree in Design and Visual Communications. After college, I searched for a way to meld my love of design and weddings. During the planning of my own wedding, I designed all of my own stationery and began exploring calligraphy. I enjoyed it so much, I decided to open an Etsy shop with invitation designs! After a few years of honing my calligraphy skills, I am now designing invitations using my own calligraphy and also offer calligraphy services!

Design and calligraphy has been such a refreshing way for me to express my creativity and connect with brides around the World! Thought and purpose go into every detail of my designs. I strive to see from the bride's eye and only deliver things that I am truly proud of. I especially love collaborating and I find my best work comes from putting our brains together to think up an amazing and unique idea. I want to discover what brings you love and joy and use that as inspiration to create something beautiful.

I hope my work inspires you to dream up an idea we can bring to life!

    I write these vows in my calligraphy, scan and digitize them into the computer. Then, I send Clark Graphics the finished files and they complete the printing of the final design.

Refunds and Exchanges
**Please proofread your files carefully!! I spell check as best I can, but once you have approved a final design, I am not responsible for any additional spelling or grammar errors after printing.**

Please note that colors and fonts may vary from monitor to printer due to the wide variety of printer inks and processes. I am happy to work with you to fix any problems you may run into during the printing process (tweaking colors/fonts/sizes to meet your expectations), but I am not responsible for any printing problems after you have approved the final files.
Additional policies and FAQs
FAQ’s:

Q: I just ordered a DIGITAL FILE listing. Where should I print my design?
A: At any professional printing center or website, or on your own home printer! I always recommend looking into a local printing company such as FedEx Kinkos. It's also a great idea to do a quick google search of digital printers in your area. With a local printer, you can see a printed proof before the finals are done, which is not usually the case with online printing companies. Some online companies I recommend are CatPrint and MOO.com

Q: What paper do you recommend for printing?
A: For invitations, I would recommend a thick matte or semi-gloss card stock that is at least 80lb., preferably 100 or 110lb. thick. All print and copy centers will have some variation of this in stock.

Q: I can’t open my PDF document. Why is that?
A: You must download Adobe Reader to view and print PDF documents. You can download Adobe Reader for free by following a few simple instructions at http://get.adobe.com/reader/.

Q: Can you change colors or artwork?
A: I am more than happy to change colors and artwork with the purchase of this "Change Artwork" listing. Please note that this listing will need to be purchased for each change on each card.
