etsy love.




i think it is really important to give compliments where they are deserved. since we recently moved to a new town, i was in need of some new things....mostly in the way of address labels, business cards, etc. when i started shannon darby design four years ago, i went out and had a logo designed and spent a lot of money on business cards, letterhead, and envelops....and ordered way too many. well this time, i decided to take a different approach. and i am so happy with my results. which is why i wanted to share them with you. and b/c i would like to give them a little shout out in hopes that maybe they can get some future business....
so here they are....super cute items, very sweet girls that designed them, budget conscious, and one happy customer.

1. return address label by lettergirl....i went with a self inking stamp and love it. urban grace did a post on her adorable address stamps and i bookmarked it for the future. christmas came around and my fab return address label landed at my house thanks to my mother-in-law.
2. address stickers by bohtieque...i bought these adorable stickers for The Designer's Attic. i am putting them on my items that i ship out. great price....cute stickers.
3. calling cards/ business cards in my case, by pixelimpress. great, very hip design patterns. pam is a delight to work with and even broke my order into two color ways- 25 turquoise and 25 pink zig zag business cards. 50 total per order at a great price (especially if you have designed a business card and then had them printed).

so go out and support handmade/ good girls!! i am sure happy i did :)

That's one of the cutest address stamps I've seen, and I really love those business cards! They are definitely sure to stand out from the crowd (in a good way!) Thanks for tipping us off!

Love everything. I want a stamp- but we are probably moving in about 16 months- so I think I may just wait.

Beautiful! Love your colors. I ordered several things from letter girl and adore them all. And I couldn't agree with you more about Pam, she's so sweet and has a great product!

I just bought some calling cards from pixelimpress, they're adorable, and I had such great service!

Love your zig-zags ones, I chose some chevron inspired ones as well to match my blog header.

Those are all great--and I love Pam @ Pixel Impress. I ordered her Valentine's Day labels and am in LOVE. She's also one of the kindest in the blog-o-sphere. Great choice!

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.

i love when bloggers pass along their favorite etsy shops — it's a great site but can be so overwhelming to peruse without direction! great post :)

Pixel Impress is great...I ordered some biz cards from her too! I just posted it onto my blog along with my office renovation. :)
