Welcome to Signify Designs! I am excited to offer my views of the world to you through my fine art photographs. I am especially fond of nature, flowers and macros. What an incredible world it is with a camera in hand!

I am a strong believer in handmade blank cards: find a beautiful card (you know the saying that a picture is worth a thousand words--it's true!), then write your own heart-felt sentiments inside. Many of my card listings include the significance of the flower, making it easy to find the perfect card for any occasion--from Valentine's Day to a simple "thinking of you." I may be a bit old fashioned, but there is something very magical about a beautiful photograph paired with high-quality paper and pen.

My card stock is Speckletone paper made by the French company. I love this paper! It is 100% recycled. Cards are made with the natural-looking Madero Beach White or the earthy Oatmeal.

"The original fiber sheet, Speckletone! This paper is a good-looking sheet with visible flecks, also, the earthy yet incredibly creative sheet is 100% recycled. This product is manufactured acid-free and chlorine free. 100% recycled containing 30% post consumer waste. Like all French products, it is also produced with 100% green power since 1922." (

The paper is beautiful and holds to my beliefs in using recycled or upcycled materials and green power whenever possible.

My photographs are printed at a professional lab. For this reason, please allow 5-7 business days for most orders to be processed and completed (does not include shipping time).

Thanks for visiting!
