Create something wonder-FALL…

Dear DJ Friends…


I’ve gotta say… fall is the only time it’s hard for me to live in Florida. I miss the cooler temperatures, beautiful colors and the smells that come with autumn. There’s already snow in the mountains where I grew-up! At least I can make myself feel a bit better by creating some fun fall decorations and lots of festive clip art projects. 🙂

Create something fun for fall with DJ Inkers!  Cute owls and pumpkins from October Doodlers clip art.
What autumn smiles will YOU create?


If you’ve ever used DJ Inker’s clip art and fonts to create something truly wonder-FALL… we would LOVE to see! In fact, if you’ll share an image with us, we’ll treat YOU to a $5 coupon to shop for smiles! (It’s no trick.)


This can be anything from harvest time and leaves to Halloween, Thanksgiving or even back to school. All you have to do is send us an image! You can post it here on the blog, send an email to smiles@djinkers.com OR post in our facebook group: DJ Inkers Clip Art Creators. Be sure to include your email address so we can send you your own unique code.


Now in our family, one of the best parts about fall is Halloween. We’ve already got costumes in mind and have added a few creepy new decorations to the collection! I’ve even thought about not dusting… just so that the house looks more authentic for the occasion. 😉 Just kidding… sort of.


With 5 kids in our family and years of driving our mom crazy with our Halloween obsession, DJ Inkers has created plenty of not-so-spooky smiles to make this season a scream. (And a lot of them are on SALE now!) Whether you’re hosting a costume party, making a festive worksheet or activity for the kids or some custom decorations to get you in the spirit… you’ll find everything you need at DJI.


We can’t wait to see what you create! I hope you’ll take a few minutes to share. Your comments and creations make all of our work SO worth it. Thanks for your support and smiles, friends! Wishing you lovely leaves and warm autumn smiles!


Happy Fall clip art for kids and classrooms

Happy Birthday DJ Inkers!

Hello friends!

This year, DJ Inkers celebrates 29 years of creating smiles! Happy birthday to us! 😊🎈

It all began when I drew the very first “Cut & Copy” books for a neighborhood boutique nearly 3 decades ago!!  Since then, we’ve created everything from rubber stamps, stickers and bulletin boards to the thousands of digital smiles we offer today.  It has certainly been an adventure.

 

From the beginning, we have always been a small family business.  Over the years, I’ve enlisted every one of my 5 children to help with the company in one way or another.  Today, I work with two of my daughters at DJ Inkers.  Alix (my business & website manager/helper/smarty pants) has worked with me for over 13 years now (not including the early days of peeling ‘stickies’ off the backs of stamps for a penny).  Kaylie has worked for us doing customer service for about 4 years.  It’s just the three of us trying to make sure that YOU have a good experience with what you purchase from DJ Inkers.  I’m amazed that we still have such joy & creativity for new ideas… mixed with constant changes & frustrations.  With all of the waves of free clip art, computer changes and updates, people publicly sharing our images, the changing styles and needs of our customers and the costs of running a website… are pretty significant (and, at times, stressful).  There is a huge sense of pride in our work together.  Because… it’s not easy!!

 
What I do know… is that your smiles make it all worthwhile.  We couldn’t do it without YOU.  It is so much fun when we get to see your creations in the real world.  We crazy love it when one of the kids comes home with a handout that has a DJ smile.  We even see our classroom decor on tv once in awhile!  Your feedback and input help us more than I can ever begin to say.  Knowing what you’re looking for in clip art, fonts and printables helps us know what to create… and keeps us going!  We love to make your creations easier, cuter and more fun.  I truly thank you for being a supporter and customer.

 
If you have a fun summer project you’ve made with DJI… post it to our fb group: DJ Inkers Clip Art Creators.  You could win a $40 gift certificate this week!!!  If you have a fun new idea, project or clip art request… contact us!  If your school needs a new mascot or your child has a new teacher… please share our website with them.  Word of mouth is still our best advertiser.  🙂

 

We hope you’ll join us in celebrating our birthday with a fun Party Time SALE this week!  Click here to see some of the fun products on sale… and get a coupon for a FREE party favor!  😉

 

Looking forward to all the NEW and clever ways we can create a smile together this year!  So much love, heart and smiles to YOU!! ❤

 

Dianne, Alix & Kaylie

A humongous, BIG, extra-extra special thank you to teachers

I know I sound like a broken record… but I can’t begin to tell you how much we should appreciate our TEACHERS!

 

Teachers come in many forms throughout our lives.  The ones that leave a lasting impression, with something they say, do, or teach us… forever stays in our hearts.

 

I’ve had the incredible blessing of knowing and working with so many amazing teachers over the years… ones that have taught me, others that taught my children, my community and my family.  I’m SO grateful for each of them.

 

So, it is truly my privilege to draw ‘things’ that teachers use in their classroom and home.  We all get so excited when the grandkids come home with papers featuring DJ clip art or fonts.  The other day, I got looking through the past 25 years of bears, schools, kids, crayons, etc. and ohhhhh my!  I’ve drawn a boatload of them!  My heart almost bursts when I get a picture or someone responds on our blog with how they’ve used DJ Inker’s clip art and fonts in their classroom!

 

Here at DJ Inkers, the best way for us to THANK YOU is with great SALES…  and fun FREEBIES!  🙂  Happy Teacher Appreciation Week friends!  Our entire store is 25% off through May 8, 2019.  🙂

 

 

As we prepared for this sale… we had a lot of help from some incredible teachers AND bloggers.  How DO you do it all???  As I looked through your posts about DJ Inkers, I felt completely inspired.  I am so grateful to these wonderful women who have been so supportive.  You’ll definitely want to take a look at these darling teacher blogs.  Who knows?  You might even win a DJ Inkers gift certificate giveaway!  😉

In short… thank you.  Humongous. BIG, extra-extra special….thank you.  I know it’s not easy what you’re doing out there as teachers, but it means the world to those of us that count on you to help guide and teach our children (and grandchildren!).

 

Share with me what YOU’VE done in your classroom and what we can create that helps you in your classroom and home.

 

Loves and massive THANKS to you!!

 

Dianne

Make some bunny smile today!

Hello darling DJ friends…

 

Are you ready for the holiday weekend?  There are so many different celebrations and special occasions around the world this time of year!  Wherever you are, we hope that be the reason some bunny smilesit’s full of love, family and happiness.  As we began making plans for spring and summer at DJ Inkers, we looked at the last blog post (FaLaLa Llamas!?!?!) and realized that it has been entirely TOO long since we’ve written.  So much has happened in just a few months.  I don’t know about you… but I’m already looking forward to summer.  I fantasize about just laying on the beach and watching waves go in an out.  With a large family (and growing!), time to simply relax is more and more rare these days.

 

But, oooh… isn’t that exciting? 💜 Our family is growing!  My daughter, Kaylie, and her husband, Mohamed are having their first baby in a few months!!  Kaylie does a lot of our customer service work here at DJ Inkers.  We truly are a family company!  😊💙  So naturally, babies are on the brain around here… which is why we put together a really darling “bundle” of printables for a Baby Shower!  Now that it’s ready… it will definitely make life easier for us as we plan our own.  Maybe it will help some of YOU who have a shower to plan too!

 

Baby Shower Bundles printables and activities

The set comes with a darling invitation, gift list and thank you card, a silly shower scavenger hunt, wishes for baby and a fun diaper note activity, signs for gifts and treats, Books for Baby and Display Shower cards, and 2 sweet little treat tags (perfect for bubbles, cake pops, popcorn, gum, soda, balloons and more)! 🌸🍼💜

 

We made it using our Baby Bundles clip art with DJ Joy and DJ Bizzy fonts (all on sale through April 24th).   We hope you like it… and share it with a friend who might need it.  😉   Be the reason some-bunny smiles today!

 

Wishing you a wonderful weekend full of sweets and smiles!

Are YOU ready for Halloween?!

Happy fall my DJ friends!

 

Are YOU ready for Halloween?!  I’ve been drawing pumpkins, witches, ghosts and trick-or-treaters for quite a while now (25 years)!  DJ Inkers definitely has plenty of not-so-scary smiles to help you create something BOOTiful.  My children are all Halloween freaks…spooky Halloween frame…but I’m going to be honest for a moment here.  Personally, I don’t like scary things, candy corn, too much sugar… or the boxes of costumes and false eyelashes that have stacked-up over the years.

 

But then came along my grandkids.  Wheeew!  They are TOO cute!

 

I’m quickly changing my tune about how much I like this holiday!  They’ve given me new inspiration in connecting to this fun time of year again.  I can’t help myself when I see sparkly princess shoes to match my granddaughter’s costume, I HAVE to buy them!  And my heart melts when I see each of my grandbabies (that can hold a crayon) enjoy our Fall Coloring Pages or bring home a school project featuring DJ Inkers.cute fall coloring pages for kids

I no longer just pass out candy to my little trick-or-treaters, but I like to give ART supplies and printed coloring pages from DJ Inkers.  This year, I’m passing out our kids Halloween scavenger hunt printableHalloween Scavenger Hunt!  I can’t wait to watch them laugh and run around as they try to find the first pumpkin or witch hat.  I’m so excited!

 

Have YOU created anything spooktacular for the fall holidays so far?  We just LOVE it when you share your ideas and inspiration!  Please comment here or show us some of your creations in our facebook group:  DJ Clip Art Creators.  🙂  We can’t wait to hear from you!

 

Hoping YOU have a magical Halloween season and a BOO-tiful Fall!
