*PLEASE message me if you have a problem with your DXF file!
**We now offer a SAMPLE file that you can use to make sure our files will work with your machine. Please find it on our Facebook page, or message me for details!

***If you feel I'm infringing on a copyright or trademark, PLEASE message me, as I try my hardest to research phrases and determine what I can and cannot use. Almost all of my designs have official U.S. Copyright Numbers.

All my designs are hand-lettered, and are my own original thoughts and ideas. If you see other designs like mine, please realize that I do not copy or build from other people's art or designs, and I will not do so purposely for profit. I can make items using phrases that are not copyrighted or trademarked. If you find my digital files for sale or offered in another location, please inform me, as this is not allowed. If you have an idea or phrase you like, I would love to make it happen for you! But please do not send me pictures of items you would like duplicated or "something similar to" - I will not copy someone else's art, as I have been a victim of this. I have been drawing my whole life, and love letters. My signature "LetterBanners" appear in some of my art, and are an extension of a letter that turns into a banner. :) I love drawing, and can't wait to create something unique for my customers!

***ANY of our original vector art designs can be printed as a simple piece of DIY wall art. Please contact us via conversations if you need a certain file type or size. I am currently working on adding printable 8" x 10" jpg files to most downloads. If you download an item and need a jpg but it wasn't included, please contact me and I'll email it to you. Thanks!***

Shop Hours:

Thank you so much for shopping with us! By purchasing from us, you're helping 5 little kiddos attend preschool, play sports, take swim lessons, and so much more!

Since I'm stay-at-home mom to 5 very young children, my hours are fit in around the times that my kids need my attention. That being said, I will do my best to respond to conversations and custom requests within 24 hours, likely sooner. Weekends (Friday night - Sunday night) - especially Sundays - are reserved for family time, however, I do have a hard time sticking to my own rules. ;) If you send me a message after 5pm on a Friday, I may not respond until Monday morning. Thanks for understanding! :)

Please note that everything you'll find here is unique to my shop. At The Smudge Factory™, you'll find a few one-of-a-kind hand-painted signs, some chalk art printables, and hand-lettered re-scalable SVG vector cut files. My kids leave their marks all over my home in the form of hand and fingerprint "smudges," so it seemed only fitting to add my personal "smudge" to every item created here at The Smudge Factory™. This is why everything that's created is hand-lettered or drawn, solely by me. None of my items are created using fonts; none of my items are made using clip art.

***COMMERCIAL LICENSING IS AVAILABLE! Some designs are FREE for commercial use. Some require an additional purchase, which keeps them more exclusive to those who want to sell items using our art! :) Please read listing descriptions to be sure you understand my licensing requirements. I keep very detailed records of who has purchased commercial licensing and for which designs. Please be aware of this if you plan to sell my items. All files offered on Freebie Friday are for personal use only, however - commercial licensing may be purchased to use with your free design.

Thanks for visiting!

About

My house may be a Smudge Factory, but at least my ceilings are clean!

Welcome to The Smudge Factory™!

Thank you so much for shopping with us! By purchasing from us, you're helping 5 little kiddos attend preschool, play sports, take swim lessons, and so much more! With a new little one due this summer, we're one busy family!

I am a full-time mom and wife to my 5 young children and husband Matt. Together, he and I make a great team. We've tackled many DIY home improvement projects - and he's always able to bring my crazy ideas and designs to fruition. We moved into a new home, and with it came new projects and a new, fresh design style. Since I love to create, each piece of decor in my house was hand-painted or created by me...or built by my husband! We enjoyed the process so much, that we decided it was time for me to (finally!) open my etsy shop, offering the same attention to detail to all the signs and digital files I create for you. Because of the nature of reclaimed wood, a lot of our signs will be one-of-a-kind art pieces. I can use the same design over and over, but the wood will never be the same. We usually find scrap pieces that would only produce a handful of signs. I hand-pick each board to match the design or feeling I want to create in a finished piece. Our signs aren't made using any assistance from stencils; each one is hand-lettered by me on a small scale, either using plain old white paper and a pencil, or my iPad Pro and Apple Pencil. Next, they're enlarged, and then I use my tiny little brush to intricately paint each letter by hand. I love wood in its natural, weathered state, which usually means only power-washing and/or scrubbing it by hand. We opt not to sand or refinish the wood unless it gives me splinters while I'm working with it. :) The juxtaposition of rough, raw wood and beautiful lettering is what I love most about my signs.

Did I mention I'm also a reclaimed wood hoarder? Oh yeah, that too. ;)

I began offering some of my designs as vector art, simply because I know there are a lot of people out there that love DIY projects. My files started out with the intention to be used as stencils for amateur sign makers for people who have their own die cut machines. Little did I know that there are so many other uses for vector files! Some just decide to purchase, print and frame for a unique, inexpensive piece of art. Whatever you decide use them for, they'll be sure to add a personal touch to your projects. ANY of our original vector art designs can be hand-painted onto reclaimed wood or simply printed as wall art. Please contact us via conversations if you need a certain file type or size. I am currently working on adding printable 8" x 10" jpg files to most downloads. If you download an item and need a jpg but it wasn't included, please contact me and I'll email it to you.

About 8 years ago, I left my full-time job as a graphic designer to stay home with our daughter when she was born. A skill I unintentionally put on hold when I began having children was drawing. My favorite medium is charcoal, and I really love creating portraits. I decided to put a new spin on that, and got really into chalk art designs, as chalk looks and acts like charcoal, but the subject and medium blended more with the theme of my shop. I then picked up my iPad and stylus with the intention of creating quick drafts that would then be turned into signs and/or chalk art pieces. After converting those sketches into vector art, a new love was born - creating digital vector cut files!

Since our daughter was born, we have added 4 boys to the mix - and while I really struggle to keep things clean, we take pride in staying silly and never taking ourselves too seriously. My house may be a Smudge Factory, but at least my ceilings are clean! ;)

    Owner, Creator, Designer

    I'm a stay-at-home mom and wife, and over the last 8 years, I've worked to find ways to stay creative and continue my passion, which is art & design. I love to create, and drawing is a great stress relief after a long day with my adorable munchkins.

  • Matt

    Owner, Handsome Carpenter

    He's my amazing husband. He juggles it all, from owning businesses & working outside the home, to helping me with my home projects. He loves to make my crazy ideas come to life. We make a great team, and our kids would say he's pretty awesome, too.

Frequently asked questions
Do you accept custom digital file orders?

Custom orders for digital files are accepted, depending on my current workload. Please message me for current turnaround times. I provide proofs, but I require payment before I start sketching. Please know that I work hard to ensure that you're happy with what you receive from me. :)

I am not a copy machine; I will not copy someone else's work. I can take ideas from something you like and come up with my own design, but I can not - and will not - reproduce someone else's work for profit. If you find an item somewhere that is similar to something in my shop, please know that outside of using common phrases - many of which are suggested by my customers - all my items are my personal property. Thanks for understanding!

Do you accept custom wood sign orders?

I am not currently accepting custom wood sign orders at this time.

Why is your sign inventory low? Can I still buy the sign I favorited?

After welcoming our 5th child in the summer of 2016, we have decided to move away from creating wood signs. If you favorited an item to come back and purchase at a later date, just message me and I can probably re-create it for you if it's currently unavailable. :) Thanks for understanding!

Do you offer Commercial Licensing?

Commercial licensing is available! Please see the Commercial Licensing section in my shop for details.

If you purchase a file without commercial licensing, it remains personal use only, unless stated in the listing description. Please see individual listing descriptions for details on our Personal Use Policy.

Custom designs do not automatically come with commercial licensing. Commercial licensing is available for purchase on custom designs, however if you want exclusivity to such designs, there is an additional charge and it must be discussed upfront. Please inquire for details.

Can I sell items I make using your art?

Yes, however - most designs are personal use only unless commercial licensing is purchased separately. If you would like to sell items using our designs, please purchase commercial licensing for each of the files you wish to use. Each listing description states our Personal Use Policy, so please find the file you would like and carefully read the listing description. There are separate listings outlining our Commercial Use Policy with pricing. The files that are free commercial use are marked accordingly.

Do you have any coupons?

Current coupon codes are always listed in my shop header. Visit my shop homepage to see any current offers.

Do you offer any fonts?

Unfortunately I don't! All my items are drawn by hand, personally - by me. :) I don't use fonts when creating any of my items.

How can I contact you?

Please send us an Etsy Conversation for the quickest response.

If you need to snail-mail something to us, please write:

Our Personal Use Policy is outlined in every listing, however - the entire policy can be viewed on our Facebook page (Facebook.com/TheSmudgeFactory). Our designs MAY NOT be uploaded to any file sharing page or website for ANY reason. Almost all of our designs are covered by federal copyright numbers. Please contact us if you have any questions.
