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!

Thank you so much for your feedback on Branches and Save the Date! Sometimes, I don't see a big design flaw until its pointed out, then it's glaring!

Hello Melissa, I really appreciate your ideas for my Wild Cactus! I reworked it, check it out, I think it looks much better! I do have a hard time overworking my designs, so your critique definitely helps, so I say Thank You!

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!

Hi Melissa, I had been wanting that font FOREVER and a day! I finally bought it for myself at Christmastime. It's so me. I love it! Good luck with all of your entries and thanks for the encouraging comments on Modern Geometry!

I think it could go either way. I'm not sure if one is more grammatically correct than the other?!?! Arriving seems to roll off the tongue a little better but that could just be me. You could always do a poll and see if someone who really know grammar could chime in :)

Hi Melissa, loving your chevron frame for the birth announcement challenge! That just reminded me though about the buddy program. Sorry, I sort of dropped the ball on that one! I can't seem to find the email about it but I remembered you were my buddy. So sorry, with the holidays and everything it's been a little crazy. If you'd like to get in touch, let me know. :)

Thanks again Melissa and all the best in the challenge to you too! You must be a master juggler with 4 kids and being a working mom. Love your work! Happy Holidays to you as well!

Melissa! I don't think anyone has ever referred to any of my stationery designs as "Amazing"! You made my day with that comment. THANK YOU so much!! Don't know how you were able to submit 15 beautiful invites in this challenge! Anyway, can't thank you enough! :)
