I cannot give enough praise to this shop owner's creativity and skill! She has made me business cards, certificates, stickers, return address labels, and now, a custom banner for my Etsy store. It is fantastic! Everything I wanted and more! If you are looking for something to showcase or market your wares, I highly recommend this seller! She delievers 110% every time!

I am so pleased with my new branding for my shop. The shop owner was so helpful and gave great input throughout the process. Even when I had challenges along the way she gave great insight and helped make the process so easy for me. I highly recommend this shop and I'm so happy I chose her for my work.
I know that branding and marketing your business can be a big scary thing - and maybe you feel a little lost.
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.
You already know that branding your store and showcasing your products is an important step in being a successful (and profitable) Etsy shop. You want your customers to feel at home in your shop and ready to buy your fabulous products. You want a visual feast that reflects you, draws your potential customers in and keeps your shop’s appeal fresh and eye-catching. You also want it to be professional, consistent and geared towards the folks who are ready to open their wallets and CHA-CHING for you.
But between the crafting and the customers, there's not any time or energy left to pour into your shop branding -- it’s hard to find time to even think about stuff like creating a branding package. You know it’s important… but it’s a long way down the list of things that have to get done, and you don’t have a lot of time to spare for it.
Maybe you just don’t feel confident with graphic design or designing shop graphics for your Etsy store and afraid you’ll do it “wrong”. Maybe you don’t want to spend hours learning a whole bunch of new software. Maybe you just don’t like doing this kind of stuff. Maybe you’re just so gosh-darn busy filling orders that you don’t have time to even think. (Congrats!)
There's no reason to bang your head trying to figure out specialized design software or rack your brain to figure out how to do it “right”. You don't need to spend a million dollars to have a great, consistent brand. And it can still be easy, affordable and professional – not to mention unique, interesting and yeah, okay, GORGEOUS.
This stuff IS my superpower. I want to tell you right now that you are no longer alone in this. You have a friend, ally and partner in me and I am here to support you with amazing design work and to provide the practical, actionable advice that you need to feel comfortable with branding and marketing your business. I help people just like you understand and create their brand, and then 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, just getting started 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.
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).
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!
Thanks for visiting my shop, and I hope you found what you were looking for here!
PS If you are looking for products that color your life, check out my offerings in my original shop, She Dreams In Ink (https://shedreamsinink.etsy.com), where you can get cool, unique and colorful labels, stickers, invitations, printable and more! This shop also played host to my branding work for my first couple years on Etsy, so you can see a lot of reviews from happy branding clients there as well.
I'm a graphic design & branding expert with 30 years experience spanning from preparing press files in print shops to direct mail to agency design to franchising. I'm also an non-fiction writer and student of boxing - a Gemini girl does it all!

Frequently asked questions
Are these designs one-of-a-kind?
All custom designs are custom one-of-a-kind work. I do not duplicate or reuse graphics.
Outside of that, 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, although the product itself may not be shared or resold.
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.
Custom and personalized orders
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.
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.
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).
