Sample: Annie Clark approaches her art with a graphic
designer's eye. A long-time resident of the Mission in San
Francisco, she is constantly inspired by the diverse color and
texture of her neighborhood.
Phrosné (owner&designer) is a creative soul & it shows in her work. She finds many things pretty. She is based in Cape Town, South Africa & she's loving it; yet grateful that communities like Minted help to invent her 'traveling desk'.
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
artist, adding a special personal touch that helps customers
remember you and your artwork. This is separate from the Thank
You Note above and is important to position the art piece as a
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
a URL. This information could create confusion for follow-up
Sample: Hello! I am so honored you chose my artwork to
hang in your home. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have in
making it. Best to you, Annie

Thanks so much for the sweet comments, Phrosné! :)
Hi Phrosne! Thanks so much for your nice comment on my "Love" design. Do you think you could take another look, I'm polling about the heart, would love to know your opinion on it (I'm pretty sure I'm overthinking it right now!) Thanks so much :)
Thank you so much for your sweet comment on my design, Phrosne! I appreciate it! Hope holiday sales are treating you well. :)
What would we do without you, Phrosné! Your comment is still cracking me up - thanks for putting a big smile on my face :)
Thank you so much! It looks so much better with your suggestions!

Hello Phrosne! Thank you very much for the comment and encouragement. Yeah, I will submit it today. :) Thank you again.
hey girl! thanks for all your sweet comments.. I thought about entering the ampersand design in the letterpress challenge but i'm not sure about the texture. i was working on a similar concept though;)
awww thanks phrosne!
Congrats on your wins! they r all lovely
Yay! Congrats on your 4 stationary wins! They are just beautiful!
Thanks Phrosne for your recommendations! I made some changes.
Also big congrats on all your wins. You are killing it. :)
Congratulations Phrosne! Love your new stationery collection!
Seriously ... you have to let me in on your 'winning streak secret'! Awesome job on your lastest wins Phrosne.
you cleaned up!! congrats! :)
eeep! Thanks my dear!!
thank you dear! a big congrats to you too! :)
Congrats on your wins! :)
lol - that's another one i'm putting in my 'naughty corner' for now b/c it frustrates me. just doesn't look right. grr!
You had GORGEOUS wrapping paper -- I am shocked they weren't picked -- but I think several of them were right at the top -- like 17, 20 etc
What are you talking about - you are a winning machine! Miss knockin-out-#1's like it's easy as pie ;) send some of that luck this way ;)
So funny! I saw the word's "so brilliant" in my e-mail and knew instantly that it was from you! One of my best friends is British, lived in South Africa from the age of 12 and went to university in Cape Town. She says things like "brilliant", "heh, man", etc. One of these days we're going to make a trek to South Africa. Wouldn't it be fun to meet up with each other! Congrats to you, too by the way! You're just racking up the awards!
Thanks for the compliment... having a bad work night, so it put a smile on my face.
Another amazing design and win!!! Congrats!
Thanks so much for the sweet note, Phrosné! I would have to say the same for your entries! I missed the last save the date challenge so I'm trying to make up for it right now. :)
You are so sweet Phrosné! Your entries in this challenge are gorgeous!
Thank you so much :) Ha, I hope so ;) I'm so happy you are a part of Minted—you've brought such a great fresh style!
aw, you are too sweet, thank you. I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed. Haven't even had time to go through the entries in a couple weeks now - just peeking at yours and they are amazing! I want to take some time to look at them more closely - you are on a roll!! :)
here is a last minute poll what do you think. Would love your input http://www.minted.com/design-rating/111241
congrats to u as well.. awesome wins..ur flowers rule.. =)
Phrosne, thanks so much for the nice comments on my calendar designs and congratulations to you too!!! A second place right after a win!!! Congrats :)
thanks for the nice notes; i needed 'em :) every time i think I am improving, I seem to do worse! oh well. :)
Phrosné - Thanks for the nice comment on my calendar design, and congrats on your wins!! :)
Thanks for your super sweet comment Phrosné!! And a huge congrats on your calendar wins, they are all so gorgeous! LOVE your work :)
Thanks girl. Your are 'award winning';)
Haha.. Im just making sure everyone else agrees with me;)
Phrosne, thanks for your honest feedback. What do u think of these 2 choices? I'm having such a tough time with this design! http://www.minted.com/design-rating/109999
Congratulations on your calendar wins! Gorgeous as always!
and THANK YOU!:)
Genius! Gray is so much better;)
Hi Phrosne! Thank you for your nice words...it means a lot coming from you. Yes, it's funny as the original beveled SAVE is what started this idea in the first place. I'm going to work on using that for another for sure! Cheers.
Hi Phrosne, thanks for your feedback, it is helpful and welcome. You're right my design does not need the tandem bike, it just goes with the statement about beginning the journey together. At least with this challenge we have lots of time to think about our final designs. I am going to make the confetti a lighter tint, thanks for the suggestion. Cheers, Robin
Thanks, Phrosne! I see what you are saying. I checked the type and both lines are the exact same weight and size, so it must be an optical illusion or just the low res screen quality;) Maybe I will re-export and see if it looks better? Just the fact that you cared enough to ask means so much...you are the best!!
oops i posted my submission page, here is the one for my design http://www.minted.com/design-rating/107207
thanks for your help phrosne. they really helped. i made some changes like you suggested but not sure how i did with the date. it maybe too small and too bold... http://www.minted.com/collection?id=1817
Phrosne, thanks so much for the detailed advice. I really struggled with the fonts and writing on this design. You so helped me! Take a peak and see what you think. You guys make me emotional with the amount of help you give to make us succeed. It is really incredible. Wow. Chris
Thanks so much for the lovely comment, Phrosné!! I'm SO in awe of your talent so it really means a lot! :)
Thanks, Phrosne! I completely agree with you. I updated it to read "MARRY" instead of "BE MARRIED." I appreciate your help/feedback so very much:)
Hi Phros! If you get a minute, what do you think? A, B or original version? Thank you!!! :)
Your new profile photo is so gorgeous!
Hey Phros! Thx so much for your comment on my rustic vines design... definitely going to try out some different colors when I get a chance. Loving all your submissions as always! :) xo
Hi Phronsé, your work is so lovely with all of your wonderful illustrations. I was wondering, do you draw them up on paper and then bring them into photoshop/illustrator or do you draw them from a Wacom or some type of tablet? I was contemplating getting a Wacom but I don't know if it's worth it. I thought I would ask you since your drawings are so spectacular you could tell me your basic creative process. Again, wonderful work and good luck to you!
Thank you Phrosné! I think you are totally right about making the names bolder! :)
haha Phronsé, my pleasure. You're killing it.
Thanks so much for the wonderful comments you left for me Phrosné! You are so sweet! Love your gift wrap entries too!
What a gorgeous profile pic, Phrosné. So dreamy!
Phrosne... you are killing the gift wrap challenge! Expect to see a big win from you here again! Your work is so good :)
Thank you for the sweet comment, Phrosné! (And all of them!) :)

You crack me up! Seriously, you rock :)
Lol I actually had a right retro color one that I never submitted ;) I chickened out on the pattern bc I was concerned folks wouldnt like the customized parts possibly cut off when wrapped :(
And you r too kind too kind to be the only like on the wreaths ;) lol
Just about to pull that and rethink ;)
Lol- thought you'd be mad at me for changing it ;)
Congratulations on your first and sixth place wins in the minibook challenge. Well deserved :-)
