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 websitewith them. Word of mouth is still our best advertiser. :)
