Spreading my love...

After getting my degree in Communication Design in 2002 I knew that I didn't want to go the traditional route and decided to go the path less traveled. Lucky for me I was able to work under some seriously awe-inspiring artists that developed their own businesses from scratch and decided I wanted to create my own business based on my passion for art, design and illustration. More than anything I wanted it to be about happiness, love and building a home – because that's exactly what I was living. By putting my love out there and making my work about something that was uniquely my own I found my way and continue everyday to bring customers the very best of me.

Spreadthelove is about simple, lighthearted illustrations. I majored in Communication Design at Kutztown University with a concentration in Illustration. My process goes as follows: First, I get out my ink-pen and doodle my daydreams. Next, I scan my work and then add the final touches of color and typography. I love creating prints that make great gifts for children - or the child-at-heart, illustrated "how-to's", and more.

Notice: If you pay via credit card you WILL NOT receive your shipping info automatically via email when your package goes out. If you'd like to request your shipping info please convo me for your USPS tracking number/date. Thank you!
A shipment leeway of 5-7 business days is required for all regular prints to be shipped.

ALL APPROVED CUSTOM ORDERS print on Thursday of every week.
(This means if you purchase the approved listing on Friday your banner will not be printed/shipped until the following Thursday. Please keep this in mind when ordering!)

PLEASE TAKE SPECIAL NOTE >>> I have the ability to ship via USPS, and usually this will result in lower shipping costs. (Hooray for you!) HOWEVER, these shipments are NOT fully insured and/or traceable (I will deliver a tracking confirmation number (for most items) but that means nothing if it doesn't show up!)
Therefore, the postal company is responsible for the shipment once it leaves my studio... please take this into consideration when purchasing custom items especially!


Tracking Info is as follows:

• If you paid via PAYPAL and your shipping rate at checkout was $5.00 or above you and you live in the US...

– You will receive a Paypal shipping confirmation which will include your tracking number and ship date.

• If you paid via CREDIT CARD, if your out of the US, or if your package is less than $5.00...

– You can request for your tracking number after your purchase.

Note: International shipping is via Priority Mail and can only receive Customs Declaration numbers. Additionally claims can only be registered when the package has not been received after 30 days of delivery date. Just be aware!

IMPORTANT: Unfortunately, once the package has left my hands I can not insure it's safety or even delivery! (Stinks, I know. :( I wish I could hand deliver each piece with love and care – but alas, I can not.)
However! That is what the US Postal Service is for! If you have received your tracking number but have issues with not receiving your package please contact your local PO and inquire with them with your tracking information.

Love and thanks,
Refunds and Exchanges
****All sales must be final****

I stand behind my product 100% and if you truly feel unhappy about your purchase I am reasonable. Please convo me for further information.

Additional policies and FAQs
What is your custom process?

I love creating custom illustrations! My basic custom illustration charge is $200. This price covers the developmental stage and 3 reviews. After we complete the 3rd and final review you may decide to purchase the copyright/file for a small price of $10.00. If at the first review you decide to discontinue our job all together I will refund $100. (1/2 the total cost of development)

What if I like one of your prints but I want it without the wording or in a different color?

No problem - let me know what you would like and I can easily customize it for you!
