Bringing Paper Goods to the Etsy Masses... Finally!

I started my couture invitation business, Dragonfly Custom Design, back in 2005. Since then, I have won a few awards, worked with high profile clients and blah blah... basically the business went WAY beyond my wildest dreams.
All of this was very unexpected and as the business elevated, so did the prices. I typically only take about 2-3 custom clients each month. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the couture business, it places many customers out of pricing range.
As much as I would love to design for everybody, time and budgets just didn't permit...

Until now!
After quite a long time and several attempts at launching this service, I am now able to offer the DIY bride or groom/ party host or hostess an option to have a Dragonfly invitation at a fraction of the cost. Also available are coordinating elements to make your event polished from start to finish.

I am extremely passionate about what I do and love to meet creative challenges. Custom orders, couture designs (like the above pictured) and letterpress services are always welcome through etsy or via

:::: SO, WHY "DRAGONFLY"?? ::::
My undergrad major, before design school, was entomology (it's true!) and I focused on Odonata (dragonflies). After some soul searching before graduation, I decided to make a major life change, transfer schools and go back to my creative roots. Quite a few years and an art school degree later, I can look back and say that it was the best decision I ever made.

When I launched my company and struggled to come up with a name that fit, i decided that I wanted to pay tribute to the path I could have taken. I never want to forget where I came from or what I could be doing; it has shaped me and made me who I am.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
Because of the nature of digital files, refunds are unable to be given once you have received a proof. I make every effort to make sure that all clients are happy and will work with you until you are pleased. If the event is cancelled for any reason, I can switch out the design you purchased for something that you can use (for example, personal stationary or thank you cards).

Please note that colors may vary from different computer screens as well as from the screen to the printer. Additionally, ink levels in a printer at any given time may modify a file appearance. When at all possible, it is highly encouraged that you take your proof to the printer you plan to use to get a test print.
When you approve your proof, you are confirming that all artwork is final, including text and spelling as well as coloration. Refunds will not be granted and I am not responsible for color errors, spelling errors or any changes in information (date, time, location change) that occur afterwards. If you require a change, a cost will be assigned depending on what needs to be done and I will post a custom listing for that amount.
The Couture Collection accepts all major credit cards/ direct checkout as well as PayPal. Work will begin on your selection as soon as payment has been received.
As most of my items listed are digital files, no shipping is necessary! Yay!
Your final high-resolution digital files will be sent to the email address associated with your Etsy account. If you would like them sent somewhere else, please indicate that address in the "note to seller" field upon purchase.

If you want to order something specific that needs to be shipped, I ship via fedex ground. I get the shipping estimate and I will set up a custom listing for you. Shipping costs need to be paid in full before item(s) will be sent to you.
Additional policies and FAQs
I try very hard to respond as soon as possible, which sometimes {and more often than not} may be right away. However, please allow 3-5 days for your proof

I set up my files at 8.5” x 11” so that you can easily print on any standard, full-size paper stock {I recommend card stock} at any local printer.
I separate each file type and put as many copies as will fit on a page to maximize your paper stock. I also include cut guides so that you can easily trim them off to get the finish size. I will send you a high resolution JPEG and a PDF (Printers generally prefer PDF files). In order to view a PDF file on your computer you will need to download the Adobe Acrobat Reader software
You can get that for free here:

For the best price and quality, I highly suggest Office Depot or Staples for printing, however you can certainly take to other locations or print them at home. In my experience, those two locations can handle shimmer card stock as well as heavy card stock; you can bring your own paper. I'm a fan.

::::: UPGRADE ::::
If you would like to purchase specialty paper, cardstock, envelopes, pocketfolds and other coordinating elements to enhance your DIY project and prints, please visit my envelopments shop and purchase online. These items are available in matte and metallic paper finishes and in loads of wonderful colors.

I can help you coordinate colors and walk you through steps if you need me!
NOTE: Please let me know if you plan on going this route and what, specifically, you want to do before we begin as these products run slightly larger than standard. I will need to make your files slightly larger accordingly.
