I’ve been having some issues with my previous printer since Christmas and that’s put me on a HUGE delay in releasing items that I wanted to offer for sale.
I currently am using professional grade presses and printers for all items offered in my store.
The printer is an SG800. With this printer I can print up to 13″ x 19″ for all sublimation items. Which is great for the items I’ll be offering for sale. Easier to print and with the new press that’s 16″ x 20″, easier to press. The printer is on two of the Alex drawer units you can find at IKEA. Hubby put them together over the weekend and he was impressed with how sturdy they are. I really like how deep the drawers are too. I can put a lot of paper in each drawer as well as jewelry bead boards and my MacBook Air.
The press is a George Knight DK20s. This is a heavy, heavy press. I wasn’t sure hubby and I could lift it and get it on the heat press table, but, we managed. It was delivered by a semi.
I also upgraded my mug press to offer more items. I’ll post about that at a later date.
I’ve just added the artistichappiness.com domain to redirect to this site. Anytime you want to get to my site, just type in artistichappiness.com and it should take you right to the store! I’ve been thinking about doing this for a few months. I think it will be easier for people to find the store. I’m already pretty much all over most search engines. Don’t forget my links!
My daughter Jessica (http://jessrunsatl.com) is raising money for cancer research. She’s running the NYC marathon this Fall. To do that, she needs to get $10,000 in donations.
She and I teamed up and are offering awesome shirts and tanks for men and women. With each shirt sale, $15 will go directly towards her fundraising.
These tanks (in many color options!) are now offered as well as other shirt options for men and women in my shop. Some are for runners, some are for people that survived cancer and some are for people that just want to find a cure for cancer.
My daughter ran the Savannah 1/2 marathon, this weekend, wearing this shirt to honor our late friend, Lou. He died from cancer, four years ago. Too many people die from cancer each year. With your help, we can find a cure.

Over the past week or so I’ve had a few orders. I thought I’d post some photos of what the wrapping looks like on a mug and a pair of earrings. I create all my own wrapping stickers, labels and cards. I wrap everything in recycled brown tissue paper. I use it for bags as well. This mug is in a box with brown paper surrounding it. Three cards are inside the mug, one is a care card and there’s two business cards as well.
This is the box after it’s sealed. I created the sticker shown here.
And the mug boxed up and wrapped with a bow. Another sticker goes on top. This mug is a gift, so I wrapped it for the customer. I offer that at no additional charge.
Did you know that if you live in my local area you can receive free shipping? Any zip code in Charles County, Maryland will automatically have a free shipping option at the checkout. Please make sure you choose that option so you reduce your total, it’s not automatically chosen for you.
I’ve just updated the shop to show an information bar across the bottom of every page with information for Christmas ordering deadlines. This is to remind you as you’re shopping, about the time constraints for the Christmas season. I create each item as it’s ordered, so I need to take in account not only the creation time needed, but, anything I need to order in time to create the item and the time it takes to get from me to you.
I cannot be held responsible for lost, stolen or damaged packages due to carrier error. Please ensure your address information is correct for shipping purposes. Any packaged marked “delivered” by the carrier used, will not be refunded nor sent again. All orders are sent via USPS which generally takes around 5 business days for domestic deliveries, but may take longer, depending on the post office, weather etc. As much as I’d love to, I have no control over the Post Office. If there are any problems though, I will always do my best to fix the situation.
If there is a problem with your order please email me before leaving feedback so that I can work to resolve the matter to put a smile back on your face and in your heart!
Items are shipped out within 7-10 business days of you placing the order. (Your first business day is the business day after you placed your order.)
Every order has a tracking number, which is emailed to you once your order has shipped.
Christmas orders for t-shirts need to be placed by December 8, 2016 to guarantee that your gift will arrive in time for gift giving.
Christmas orders for other items need to be placed no later than December 12, 2016 to guarantee that the items will arrive in time for Christmas.
Merry Christmas from my family to you and your family.
