About Melissa Casey

I've been a web developer & graphic designer since 1998, but have always LOVED paper & stickers, so much so that I had many pen pals growing up. In 2001 I began designing custom invitation suites which started with my own wedding invitation. That one project started a whole new creative chapter for me. My husband & I have four kiddos so I design and photograph in what free time I have, working around carpools, soccer & band. Life is fun and always interesting!

Melissa, Thank you for your input on its "a most wonderful time" I think it made a big improvement! Sometimes you look at your designs for so long that you can't see what sometimes if obvious to others.

Hi Melissa! Thank you for your message. Your Santa's Tree did look familiar! I'd already "liked" and voted on your Artistic Tree (LOVE the concept). I hope to see it in this year's assortment (along with many other designs).

Thanks for the feedback on my "Our World" announcement. I think you're right, I should just get rid of the bottom white bar and do a full bleed. I was just trying to do something different, since there are so many full bleed options. But that's probably because full bleed sells (wins).

Oh yeah, I've definitely submitted some things multiple times! It's amazing what some of the tweaks can do! My Modern Marble didn't get picked in Save the Date but after I tweaked the typography, it placed 30th in wedding which was a big surprise. I worried I was wasting my time with it, but it's my best seller now, so stick it out for sure!

Melissa, should I make the background white then? I am a letterpress dummy. :) Thanks for the advice.

Thanks for pointing out the letterpress/digital overlap issue, but my idea was that the blue would print as shown: around the letterpressed elements with a white border. Does that make more sense? If you look closely you can see a white border around the light light grey clouds.

Thanks for weighing in on the cat vs. dog debate, Melissa! I love the cat one too, but I can't stop arguing with myself about it!

Hey Melissa! Thank you so, so much for your feedback on the Merry Little Christmas design. I decided to completely change up the font, styling and photo. :) I added the family text to the bottom as well to balance it out again - that helped a tremendous amount. Thanks again!

Hi Melissa, on the outline in red design, I would only have the back red and the white not outlined in red. This is just a suggestion; if you don't like, of course do what you feel looks the best. :)

Hi Melissa, thanks for your advice which was spot on! I don't have Estilo yet but found another interesting font for the numbers - I wouldn't have thought of this until you pointed it out. :)

For some reason I can't comment on your tree design, so here's what I was going to say! - Sorry I'm just getting back to you - I like the changes you've made! You could try moving hte "please join us" line back above the tree, too and see how it looks.
