On Etsy since 2009

Multidisciplinary Artist

♥ ❤♥*´¨) I have been creating art in many forms for the past thirty-plus years. A degree in Studio Arts from the University of Illinois has allowed me to design in many forms using a collection of materials.
If there is anything I can help you design, please do not hesitate to contact me.

❤♥*´¨) Most of the designs in my shop are created by myself with the help of many art programs. The graphics are created using my own photography, computer programs, vintage postcards, wallpaper, freehand drawings, and some scanned images of my mixed media collage art. A small portion of the images was created by other talented artists.

You will find unique and colorful designs that are not published elsewhere on the web here in my shop. I do use Photoshop brushes from the internet and create a lot of my own brushes as well.

I take much pride in knowing my designs and graphics are truly mine and hope you will contact me for special requests on color and layouts.

❤♥*´¨) My studio is in my home and I have been self-employed and creating for over 40 years with wholesale and retail sales. My first retail shop was in a small town in Hinsdale, IL in 1982 after graduating from the University of Illinois with a BA in Studio Art. After two years in a stained-glass retail business, I went into the wholesale market designing country furniture.

There was no stopping me, I had to put my hands into every creative medium I could think of. I went into designing one-of-a-kind- items in jewelry which I sold wholesale and retail. Going from Fine Art shows to craft fairs every weekend allowed me to make a living and meet the most creative and interesting artists. I no longer travel to do the shows but I am still designing jewelry for the Illinois State Museums and creating here on Etsy.

For almost 30 years I designed jewelry and collage work for many different shops and galleries throughout the country.

After retiring I found a home here on Etsy creating jewelry, custom graphics, photography, computer art, and paper products for the jewelry artists and small business owners to help in the branding process. My Etsy shop keeps me busy and out of trouble.

Etsy has been a great outlet for me to share my creations with both artists and consumers.

I have the best customers one could ask for. Very patient and quick to respond to my Etsy conversations.
Please visit my new website: www.maryncarnahan.com to view my mixed media and photography.

Thank you so much for purchasing my products, you are very much appreciated.

With much respect,
Mary N. Carnahan

95% of the designs in my shop are created by one person...Mary (that's me). The graphics are created by my own photography, computer programs, vintage postcards and wallpaper, freehand drawings, and some scanned images of my mixed media collage art.

If there is anything I can help you design, please do not hesitate to contact me through my Etsy

Some of my custom designs have been created by special requests from clients that have unique products and cannot find a card or tag. These trusting clients ship their products to me and I try to create a card or tag that can display their creations.

Frequently asked questions

Can I get a proof or mock up?

Yes, I send a mock up (not the actual card image) for you to carefully view and let me know if there are any corrections needed. You will get two mock ups, $2.00 each add on. It is your responsibility to check the fonts so they are the way you want them. Please keep in mind the mock up is just that, it is not the actual card you will receive. There are a few adjustments that are minor but usually needed before I can print and cut your products to make them as perfect as possible for you.
If your order is deliver with a incorrect font or spelling, please go back and look at the mock up you approved. I will only take responsibility for mistakes I make and will be more then happy to re-send the correct order. Please LOOK OVER THE MOCK UP!

Can you add my logo?

Yes, your logo can be added as long as it is clear of copyrights and it is yours. Please make sure you have checked it by reducing it to at least 1.5 inches and taking a print of it before you send it to me. Your logo may be beautiful and clear at 3x2 inches but at 1x2 inches it may not be readable to your customers. Please check it before you send it or it will be used as is.
You can have your logo tested here:

https://www.etsy.com/listing/229664039/logo-quality-test?ref=shop_home_listings

I do not make any changes to your logo, that is up to you or your designer.

Can you print in color?

Yes, you can request my color chart or you can go to :
www.colorpicker .com
and choose the color you like. Send me the R,G and B numbers to the right. Keep in mind monitors are different and slight color changes may occur. One color per order please. NO PRINTING ON BLACK. Colors on darker papers will change the color of the ink.

Can you use my fonts?

If you have a specific font you want me to use I can download it if it is FREE to the public. It cannot say "for personal use only" I will not be able to use it.

How long will my order take?

Normally 5 to 7 business days, sometimes sooner. If you reply to my convos your order gets shipped faster. Not replying can hold up your order. I do not do "ship quick orders". I do not put one customer in front of another. If there is a gap then your order may go through
faster.

What are your business hours?

Closed on weekends... The shop will be down.
Weekdays from 9 to 5 only

What if my order gets lost/

I ship USPS First Class and Priority Mail. If the Post Office says your order was delivered to your address I cannot take responsibility for it. Call your local post office and see what they can do to locate it.
Priority mail comes with insurance so if it does get lost it is protected through the Post Office.
You will receive a tracking number with your order. I suggest you keep track of every order each day so you will know the day it will be delivered.

Do you make Custom request

Yes, if you are looking for a special design cut for a card or tag I can make it (within reason). There is a charge of $10.00 and all rights to the design become my property.
I do not do personal shopping for you from my shop. You must order the item you need then send over your logo (etsy convos). Some cards or tags have graphics on them and the graphics can be removed and your logo placed on the card in place of any design.
I have had request for different cards without a size paper quantity or information, again please order the items listed in my shop. I do not shop for you. But I can alter the cards for you if needed.
