Fab Monday Interview Questions

Name: Ashley R.

Company Name: Izzy and the Bean Design
Website: arippke.etsy.com

Blog: http://izzyandthebean.blogspot.com

Email: arippke@gmail.com

Established: March 2008

Employees: My husband and me.
Pricing: $1.50-4.30 per save the date/invitation set. Depends on the number of sets ordered.
Serving areas: Being an online business allows us to work with couples from all over the world! While the majority of our invites stay within the US, a good portion of them are shipped to Canada and Australia.
Services offered: Wedding stationery, digital wedding stationery, and graphic design (both wedding related and non wedding related)
How long have you been doing graphic design? Well, we both went to school for graphic design, so that part of the business has been active for about seven years. We started really focusing on wedding invitations a little over two years ago though when a good friend of mine, who was getting married, asked me to design her invites for her. Around the same time another friend introduced me to Etsy. We opened our store a couple of months later and it's been a perfect fit ever since!
Describe your style. The invites in our Etsy store are unique, bold, and fun. Something that, as one bride put it, "everyone from my funkiest friends to my parents loved." Creating affordable, beautiful, low stress wedding invitation is a key goal for us. We also design one of a kind custom invitations for couples in a variety of styles. Just this year alone we've designed everything from a personalized subway map invite, to a manga style comic invite, and several classically elegant suites.

Do you do have any other jobs or do you just focus on wedding graphic Design?
Yes, we're both full time graphic designers at local design firms.
What is something that few people know about you? I may literally be addicted to Oreos...
Do you have any advice to offer engaged couples or those planning a special event? Plan the wedding/event that YOU (you and your future spouse that is) want. And have fun! The day goes fast, so just enjoy it!
