MEET THE MAKER
Hello there, my name is Amy and I’m often asked, “Who is Bernadine?” Bernadine was my grandmother who was an amazing artist. She painted on canvas, clothing and wood cutouts that my grandfather cut. She created mementos for family members and beautiful decor for all. So, what better way to begin a business than with the love and passion of my grandma watching over me?
Now, I’m not a fine artist, but a lettering artist. I’ve always been obsessed with fonts and finding the right one to reflect my mood. In high school, I loved Century Gothic then graduated to Helvetica in college and now Quicksand is where I’ve landed. I could talk about fonts and typefaces for hours. It wasn’t until college that I discovered hand lettering and instantly fell in love. I was able to create my own letter forms and combine styles to create something magical. Soon, I learned how to write with brush pens, pointed pens and paint pens, which is no small feat for a lefty. After making lots of cards and signs for friends and family, I was encouraged to start my own business and Bernadine’s Designs was born.
My goal is to make you smile with every purchase. Whether you buy a wood sign, card or vinyl sticker, you are decorating your space with love. I create everything by hand (with the help of my dad for the wood projects) to make sure that your product is unique to you and not the same as what you’ll find in the store.
Love the notepads for all my writing needs. I especially like how thick the paper is. It’s definitely my favorite notepad.
Love them. Beautiful design.
Love the quality of paper and the fast shipping.
Second time purchasing and will definitely buy more in the future.
The ornaments were loved by all!!! Everyone was very excited about them and were showing each other the ones they got!!! I was so happy about it!!! No idea how I'm going to beat that next year!!!
YAYAY! Absolutely LOVE how my custom order came out from Amy!! I had a vision & she brought it to light! Can’t wait to add the hook for our lock & use this in my wedding ceremony! 😍💗
Bernadine Designs is the best at what they do! If I could give them more stars I would, I’ve never had to worry about the quality of work I get when I order things, they will be forever my go to small business to support with anything they sell!! Great job everyone, keep up the great work !!
I have gotten plenty of awesome things from Amy. From custom signs to digital designs, everything has been great. Amy has been timely and a strong communicator, she is always who I go for to get nice decorations for home. I highly recommend her!
Bought one for myself and a gift and they’re so cute! Looks just like our pets.
I’m so glad i bought this last minute - and still arrived before Christmas! Great quality and looks great on my tree.
I thought the acrylic ornament gave a timeless look- something that is a bit subtle but will always fit into the style of a tree. I purchased a holiday ornament for a close friend who lost a person very dear to him recently so the ornament was made in memory of them. When he received it in the mail, he said it was such a great idea, very meaningful to him, adorable, and something he will always keep.
Amy provided quick feedback to my request to add more text than usual and provided honest feedback of what was possible (what I submitted was too long and she wanted me to be happy with the end result so we had to modify it). I had Amy ship the ornament directly to my friend and she was willing to include a brief note with it, which was wonderful.
I found Amy to be a pleasure to communicate with, timely, and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thank you, Amy!
I ordered a custom wood sign with frame as a (belated) xmas gift. Working with Amy was great, she answered all our questions and adjusted the proof as I requested. The sign I received was beyond my expectations, absolutely perfect! And better yet the recipient LOVED it too! Thanks Amy!
My first time buying from someone I found on IG, I was a little afraid. However, the order and design process was super efficient. I was expecting something cute but what I received was awesome!!! I love the quality of this product and I can’t wait to put it on my wall.
Very happy with ornament, exactly what I was looking for.
Absolutely love my ornaments from Bernadine’s Designs! Perfect products and pricing! Any questions I had were answered in a timely matter as well. Will definitely be shopping again in the future!
I bought it as a housewarming gift for a friend and the saying was so fitting!
