I am a Graphic Designer, Illustrator and Web Designer by trade and always loved creating and seeing a design come to LIFE. I’ve worked as an art director for large advertising Agencies and in fortune 500 corporations, but my passion was for illustrating and designing stationary and invitations. I love working with type, colors and textures.

Please write a short note to customers who purchase your
art prints. Every Minted Art Print will come with a special
folded card that includes your picture and a thank you from the

high-end piece with credibility.
To help us prepare your special card, please make sure that
the image of you on the site is a photograph, not a logo, and
please draft a thank you note to customers, limiting yourself
to 150 characters. No words will be added to your statement,
so your statement should be written in its entirety,
including your name. Please do not include your contact info or

hang in your home. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have in
making it. Best to you, Annie

How can I purchase the "bootie call" invitations forms the design challenge?? I tried emailing customer service. I received a response, but still no direction on how to purchase. I would love to use these as invitations for a gender reveal party.
Anytime - it was such a great idea, so clever!
