Tis' the season to be thankful and to give back.
I'm so very thankful for the talents God has given me and so thankful to have the opportunity to do what I love doing - design. I know Christmas is right around the corner, money is tight, but we all want to give back.
Here's your chance to do just that!

First of all, THANK YOU! Since Thursday's Grand Opening, I've been designing away and loving every.single.minute. of it. I appreciate all of the support!
Many people have asked about the pricing. Good questions. Money is tight and I feel ya. Seriously. I'm always looking for a way to cut costs without losing quality and that's one of the main reasons I began designing my own invitations for events. I was saving a ton of money printing them on my own.
To make it simple, I'm going to use some clear-cut examples.
Tiny Prints. LOVE THEIR STUFF. Really do. All of their invitations and cards are modern and clean cut. But, I send out about 100 Christmas cards each December. I found this great Christmas card and wanted it for our very own... until I saw the price [ $1.61/ card when ordering 100 ]
So, I went to work.... and ta-da!
So, there ya have it! I printed these on #80 cardstock at Office Max [2/sheet] for $.66/sheet [$.33/card]
Here's what I saved!
Now, do I always copy designs? NO. I love to come up with something different and creative for each client. As you can see, I added a heart by our names and changed the blue to a teal [my fave]. That's the art of custom. You can add things and change things you don't like about something you get an idea from. So, if you see something and it's out of your budget. Use Royal Script. Don't have any idea what you want on your card? That's okay, too! I can help you figure out the perfect design!
Plus, think of all the Christmas gifts you could buy with that money you saved by using Royal Script!

It's here! Welcome to Royal Script.
I'm so stinkin' excited that the website is finally ready to share with all of you.
I've always loved art. Any type for that matter, and over the past few years I've become addicted to graphic design. I love every little bit of it. From the brainstorming, to the work itself and then seeing it come alive and have a purpose just makes me smile. After hearing "do what you love" time and time again, I've decided to finally be a little more "official" about my graphic design work. I love helping friends with their graphic design needs and hope that I will soon be able to design graphics for people that I don't know, but who will become my friends through the process.
For now, Royal Script is an online only process. I will be designing YOUR [hopefully] designs and sending the file to you electronically. It's then up to you to have the artwork printed. Don't be scared. It's really simple. And, if you haven't had something printed before, I would be more than happy to walk you through the process and give you a little advice! You might be asking, why this way? Good question. If you're like me, you want something rich, custom and exactly what you have envisioned. That's where I come in. I'll custom design the exact design you have envisioned [ or you can leave the design up to me]. And, if you're really like me, you like a rich look, for cheap. That's where the printing comes in. You get to pay at-cost printing prices instead of the prices you see online. It's a win-win. Custom design + at-cost printing = one happy customer.
You can find more information about how this all works under the tabs "STEPS" and "RULES". You can find design pricing under "PRICING" and see some of the work I've completed under "EXAMPLES". I still have a bunch of artwork to add, so be sure to come back soon! You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and be sure to follow Royal Script on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest. I'll be giving away cool prizes soon, and you'll find those on all of Royal Script's social media pages, and this website, of course.
If you're a fellow blogger, please let me know if you'd like to SPONSOR Royal Script. We're looking for fun, energetic, up and coming, cool bloggers. I'm sure you're just the blogger I'm talking about.
So, that's the introduction. I'm more than excited to begin this adventure and hope that you will choose to be a part of it. THANK YOU so much for visiting.
