Guest Blog Post by Sue McGough, owner of SilverZin Designs

Hi, I’m Sue. Owner, Designer, Maker, Marketer, Shipping Clerk and Customer Service. Yes, I am a one woman show :) ⁠

Growing up my Mom would send cards to friends and family. Not just for holidays or birthdays. She would say that she hopes it brings a smile to their face and lets them know they are thought of often. I remember going to the card shop with her as she picked out a few boxed sets. When we got home, she would stamp the envelopes and write our return address placing them back in the box and setting them on her secretary desk. Her penmanship was beautiful. With email and direct messages, I feel like handwritten notes and unexpected cards in the mailbox are becoming lost. I hope to bring that back with my beautifully designed notecards.⁠ I remember some of the card sets had coordinating envelope seals and if I were lucky, she would let me have a few. I have always loved stickers. My brown paper wrapped schoolbooks are proof of that.⁠ With fond memories, love of notecards and stickers SilverZin Designs was created.⁠ I have spent 35 + years in the Print/Graphic industry and love to create and combine elements.⁠ All items are handmade by me in my home studio with the help of Illustrator, Photoshop, Design Space, Cricut Explore Air 2 and my Brother color printer.⁠ I appreciate each and every one of you that has given or shown their support – Much love and gratitude⁠
