Merely Madison Designs

How did you get started? Tell us about yourself.

Hello! My name is Madison Herman. People ask me all the time how I “got into” graphic design… and I can tell you, that I am not sure if there was ever a “beginning” – I think it was always there. Merely Madison Designs is a graphic design company specializing in designing Custom Announcements, Invitations, Holiday Cards and more for all of the special occasions and events life has to offer! Merely Madison Designs offers the unique service of custom designing, which means your design is a true reflection of YOU and you tell us what you want! I am currently based out of Lubbock, Texas but love that my online business allows me to work with clients all over the state and country.
Merely Madison Designs began in early 2010 with a few designs for family and friends! Word-of-mouth spread and people I hadn’t met before started contacting me to design for them and that’s where it all began!

What is your creative process?

I LOVE DESIGN. I love it when something is well-designed. I love the process of getting there. I love the colors, patterns and fonts that make a design possible. I love discovering new trends in fashion that inspire my designs. I love that sometimes that process comes quickly and sometimes that process takes days. I love that exact moment when a design comes together and everything in the design works together to create something unique. I love the interesting failures along the way. I love that inspiration is all around me. I love collecting things that inspire me. I absolutely love that I have the opportunity to earn a living designing things for the most amazing people and clients who make this possible.

What products/services do you offer? Prices? Delivery? Do you print in-house?

Merely Madison Designs specializes in Custom Designed Invitations, Announcements and Holiday Cards… but that’s not all we do! Graduation season keeps us busy designing Custom Graduation Announcements and Thank You Cards for seniors and college graduates, but we stay busy year round designing for other events too. Custom designing Birthday Invitations and Anniversary Invitations are some of the most fun and of course we can also design coordinating Favor Tags, Cupcake Toppers and Decorations to really bring your party together! We love working with brides and families on designing Custom Wedding Suites that coordinate with their wedding colors and wedding style and theme. We can custom design Save the Date Cards, Wedding Shower Invitations, Wedding Invitations and RSVP Cards, Wedding Programs, Wedding Place Cards and Favor Tags! We love working with businesses too! We love working with new and existing businesses on custom designing Logos, Business Cards, Postcards, Facebook Timeline Covers and more to help grow their business and establish a brand!

Our design and print prices are very affordable. More details about our services and pricing can be found on our blog. Merely Madison Designs offers premium paper print options through our online print lab partner that give your images and our designs archival quality, vibrant colors and clarity. More details about our paper types can be found on our blog here!

    Madison has designed my business cards and company logos, both of which constantly attract and demand attention due to the details encompassed in the design process. Madison is very talented and creative, and can always find a way to make things look great. I would recommend her for any and all design/print services.
