Sending a hand-written greeting card or giving one as a gift are wonderful ways to show your appreciation for your girlfriends.
And in today's fast-paced world, it is especially meaningful when someone takes the time to select a greeting card and write a thoughtful, hand-written note.
Celebrating the women and friendships in our lives is what inspires my art and greeting card ideas.
Funding this campaign means that we'll have the resources to design more cards for more occasions, fund inventory, shipping & operating expenses, and set us up for growth.
Currently, we offer Greeting Cards and Prints.
Greeting Cards in the following categories: Everyday, Birthday, Namaste, Busy Moms and Holiday. Send a card or give it as a gift.
And Prints (matted) for those times the artistic message is especially important. Frame it, pin it, display it, give it as a gift.
Stephanie Hessler hand-illustrates all of the original artwork. The cards are manufactured on high-quality card stock in the USA with environmentally responsible printers.
The folded cards measure 5" X 7" and are individually packaged with an envelope, then wrapped in a cellophane sleeve for an elegant appearance. There are currently 40 designs from which to choose.
The prints are 5" X 7" with an 8" X 10" heavy white mat and wrapped in a cellophane sleeve. The prints can be easily framed for display in a standard-size 8" X 10" frame. Choose one of our pre-selected prints or select your favorite (Please note, the prints are matted but not framed; we'll leave the framing up to you so you can choose your favorite frame).
In addition to myself, the Everyday Greetings for Extraordinary Girlfriends team includes Juliana Freire and several others who help with all aspects of building a greeting card line. My sixteen years working in corporate business, as well as experience as an entrepreneur building an art-based collection, Cityscapes by Stephanie Hessler, have provided me ample experience with seeing projects through to completion and beyond.
How do the Rewards work?
Greeting Cards or Prints: When the campaign is ended, you'll receive a Reward Certificate by email with a unique code that you'll be able to use to select your greeting cards and/or matted prints from our website at http://stephaniehesslerdesigns.com. We expect to ship within a month of the campaign end.
Custom Artwork: At the end of the campaign, you'll receive a Reward Certificate by postal mail, so you have it in time for the holidays if you're giving the Custom Artwork as a gift. Stephanie Hessler will be in contact with you (or the person you designate) to make arrangements for the design and illustration of your custom creation. Due to the time-consuming nature of the design and illustration process, custom artwork may not be available for delivery until late February 2016, and this date is subject to change.
I am grateful for your support in making Everyday Greetings for Extraordinary Girlfriends a reality.
Risks and challenges
We have an actionable plan to fulfill our rewards on a timely basis. We work with reliable printers and expect to be able to ship product in a timely manner. Should we encounter any production delays, we will be in touch with you and keep you informed. Additionally, hand-illustrated art creation is a time-consuming process and, as such, there is a risk that custom-orders will take longer than expected. If that is the case, we will be in touch with you.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
