About

Fresh Design with a Personalized Touch

Welcome to Swanky Press!

Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion or an everyday moment, we’re here to help you make it swanky. We create invitations, gifts and goods for moms and modern women who love beautiful, fresh designs. Playful enough for the little ones, but sophisticated enough to suit your unique tastes, each Swanky Press design is fully customizable by you. The best part? We don’t charge extra to make your items extra special. Making sure you love every last detail is simply part of our process.

Our small, three-person crew is constantly working diligently, sketching new designs, tinkering with our collections, and getting items produced and sent to you in a jiffy. We love setting trends rather than following them, and we’ve been known to have fun with snarky, smart mugs and gifts that are oh-so-Instagram-worthy (if we do say so ourselves)!

Meet Elizabeth

What happens when a font-obsessed environmental engineer wants stationery and invitations that are more than cookie-cutter designs? She goes rogue and never looks back.

I founded my shop while staying home with my children, and, several birthday invitations later, I’d fallen in love with the creative process. It turns out the attention to detail that made me a good engineer translated well into graphic design. But my very favorite part was getting my kids' input on their invitations. Seven years later, Swanky Press is still all about collaboration. We know everyone’s happier when they have a say in their designs, and we love making people happy.

We Give Back

Also a source of joy around these parts: the environment. I spent years working on groundwater cleanups, and realized that clean drinking water is essential for children all over the world. This is why we donate a portion of all Swanky Press sales to Blood Water Mission, which provides thousands of children in Africa with access to clean water. Thanks to you for helping us make it happen.

Production partners

  • Melamine Printer

    United States

    Swanky Press works with one of the only melamine manufacturers in the US. Our melamine products are BPA free, dishwasher safe, and break resistant (and really cute, too!)

  • Professional Printer

    United States

    Swanky Press has partnered with a professional print center to handle the printing and shipping of our custom paper goods. Printing is done with vibrant inks on our Swanky Press 'Signature Cardstock' (premium, ultra-heavy with a matte finish).

  • Stamp Engraver

    United States

    Swanky Press works with a laser stamp engraver to engrave our designs into the highest quality red stamp rubber. The rubber is then hand-mounted onto premium wooden stamp blocks, or used with Trodat self-inking stamp bodies.

  • Sublimation Printer

    United States

    We have a long term relationship with a sublimation printer to help with mugs and cases. Through this source, we are able to access quality Case-Mate iPhone cases on the day each model launches, which is often weeks before other sellers get them.

  • Sublimation Printer (large format)

    United States

    Swanky Press is proud to have a close working relationship with our large-scale dye sublimation printer who can produce amazing quality blankets and tote bags for us. The detail of the print quality is amazing due to the cutting-edge technology and impeccable attention to detail.

Frequently asked questions

Do you accept custom design requests?

Yes, I accept custom orders. I do not charge extra for this, but it will add some time to your total turnaround. Usually it takes 1 extra week, but it can be longer during busy times. Changes to fonts and colors are easy and typically do not require extra design time.

Can you make a design with a licensed character (snoopy, star wars, hello kitty, etc.)?

I do NOT use any designs that violate US Copyright or Trademark law. I cannot create designs with licensed characters (Star Wars, Snoopy, Hello Kitty, etc.).

Can you gift wrap? Do you put prices on your packing slips?

I do not gift wrap items, but I am always happy to include a gift note upon request. We NEVER include prices on our packing slips because so many purchases are sent directly to gift recipients.

How do I get my personalization or party information to you?

There is a "NOTES" section at checkout. Please leave all of your wording there, along with any special requests. If you need a photo added to an invitation, please send that to us by etsy message.

I ordered a DIY Editable Item. How do I edit it?

1. Download your file from etsy (GO TO you>purchases & reviews)

2. Download the LATEST version of Adobe Reader. FREE at get.adobe.com/reader. You MUST have the newest version for the fonts to work.

3. Open Reader. Hit file>open & select the PDF.

4. Type your text. Don't cut & paste- that can mess up the fonts.

5. To change font size, open the properties panel: control-E (PC) or command-E (Mac). You can change size, fonts, colors & spacing.

6. Save your item under a new name. (TIP: If it won't let you save, you are either using an old version of Reader or your Mac accidentally opened it in Preview.

7. Print using Adobe Reader, or send to a local print center. (Just make sure they open it in Reader to print.)

How long will it take to get my item?

If you ask for a proof, it all depends on how quickly you reply to the proof email. Some clients reply in 10 minutes, and some take 2 weeks. If you take longer to reply, it will take longer for your finished item to get to you.

After you approve your proof, typical production times are:

* Invitations & Paper Goods - about 3 business days, with shipping by USPS or FedEX Ground

*iPhone Cases - about 3 business days, with shipping by USPS first class mail

* Mugs - about 3 business days, with shipping by USPS Priority 2-Day Mail.

* Clipboards, Plates, Platters and Tote Bags - approximately a week to produce, but we try to speed this up when possible.

* Stamps - 1-2 business days, with shipping by USPS first class mail.

Yikes! I procrastinated and need my invitations ASAP! Can you help?

We understand that invitations are often a rush order. We don't judge, because we realize how hectic Mom Life can be. :)

For standard invitation orders, we send a proof about one business day after you order. Once you approve the proof, you typically have your invitations delivered in about a week (plus or minus a day or two).

If you are in a RUSH, we can definitely help. We can rush the order and bump you up to overnight shipping, but this costs a bit extra. Please contact us for an exact quote, but the average rush fee is $15 or $20 and you have your invitations in hand about 2 days after you approve the proof.

(For rush orders, we have a minimum quantity of 20 invitations.)
