Design Projects

Over the past 4 years, I’ve designed hundreds of unique and memorable gifts for people. I love the collaboration and “invention” process when you come to me with a wish, and together we make it happen. I’ve designed business cards, invitations, pillows, golf score cards, golf towels, canvases, bronze plaques, stick-figure centerpieces, memory books, poster collages, wall clings, jelly labels, custom magnets, slideshows and more.

Here’s what people have to say about my Design Projects…

“Beth recently helped us with a unique and specialized photography project.  She blended and edited two photos and the resulting image was cast in bronze on a memorial plaque at our new high school stadium. Her work was beautiful and sensitive, and helped us create a lasting tribute.”  S.Jennings, Wellesley, MA

 “Beth is a dream to work with–she is creative, efficient, impressive, professional and truly saved me a ton of time and money during this very busy 2015-16 senior year. Beth created my daughter’s senior yearbook spread, and provided me with delightful, well crafted one-of-a-kind WHS graduation presents for 4 graduating seniors. (I was only going to buy one keepsake pillow for my daughter but when I saw how awesome they were, I quickly purchased 3 more!). When I contacted Beth about the senior yearbook piece, I was desperate–the due date was near, and although I had selected my daughter’s photos and some captions for the yearbook, there was no way I was going to be able to put these together in any dignified way. I contacted Beth and within hours–HOURS–I had the most gorgeous photo spread for the yearbook. Beth, thank you for your talents and for your time! I feel so lucky to have found you!” R. Elwy, Wellesley, MA

“Beth has once again surpassed my expectations. I just had an idea and a so-so photo which she managed to dress up by helping me address lousy backdrop. I wanted it in center of a canvas surrounded by song lyrics! I couldn’t be happier! Thanks again, Beth.” S.E.Murrey, Wellesley, MA

“If you want help making any event special, Beth is full of fabulous ideas to customize everything from your invitations to your thank you notes. Beth created a priceless photo board, custom logo popcorn cups, a custom guest book and a funny photo for my daughter’s graduation party! Beth’s attention to detail is incredible, all while she makes the process feel simple and enjoyable. A+.”  E. Scott, Wellesley, MA

“Beth Shedd is SO talented. I asked her to print out some 2 inch round labels with old scanned pictures from my college days, for a girls weekend getaway. I stuffed the wax paper baggies with chocolate chip cookies and closed the bags with these fun labels. They were a huge hit!!! Everyone was amazed to go through the bowl of pictures, not bags of cookies! Of course, the turnaround is in record breaking time. Beth is right on top of every project and treats you like you are the only one in the world. Just the best! Thank you Beth!!” J. Piazza, Wellesley, MA

“Thank you, Beth, for everything! Your support of ideas brought to you has been wonderful. But those ideas were made especially great as you enhanced them with your creativity!! The “photo-sketch” note cards made from photographs of my graduating Seniors’ schools were certainly well received by teachers and staff as our thanks at Graduation! Appreciate so much the Raiders WHS pillow too – this was a very special gift! And I will recommend you to everyone for amazing Senior Ads for the WHS yearbook – your photography and composition made our Ad shine!” D. Hart, Wellesley, MA

“Beth helped me create vibrant and fun wall art for my beach house.  Her humor and flair for color bring a smile to our family and guests daily.  Beth was patient with me as we developed my ideas, and  I am very happy with the results.”  T. Levy, Misquamicut, RI

“Beth created a photo book for my son’s graduation that was truly amazing! I knew what I wanted, but did not have the time or expertise to create it. Beth understood what I was looking for after a brief discussion, told me what I needed, and proceeded to put together a creative and unique book celebrating  my son’s life from birth to graduation.  She gave excellent advice and suggestions along the way and was so easy to work with. You must have Beth Shedd, help you with your next project.” N. Hart, Wellesley, MA

“Beth is a gifted designer whose creativity & patience make her a dream to work with.  She exceeded expectations with our yearbook ad.  Looking forward to working with her again in the future.” M.Guiffre, Wellesley, MA

“Beth is a dream to work with.  I come to her with a pinpoint of an idea and she takes it and makes it into something fabulous every time – and in record time also.  Her creativity is out of bounds and customer service the very best.  I will turn to her every time I need something extra special and unique for the certain some ones in my life.  Thanks for all of your lovely, lovely work.” R. Raibley, Natick, MA

“Beth designed a clever, creative scorecard for my basement putting green. I love how they look!” K. Fletcher, Wellesley, MA

“I’m not sure which was more enjoyable: working with Beth to put together a memory book for my son’s 17th birthday gift, or having the book, which brings a smile to our faces and touches my heart every time we look through it.  Beth uses her considerable technical skills and delightful imagination to create a wonderful product that will be enjoyed for many years to come!” A.Karpowicz , Wellesley

“Beth did a photo book of a friend’s surprise birthday party. I gave her a folder of miscellaneous items (menu, restaurant card, etc.), the chronology of events, and many emailed photos, some of dubious quality. The finished product was polished, professional, and exactly what I envisioned–with virtually no effort on my part. She even got all the names right! Beth was a pleasure to work with: proactive, super-organized, and detail-oriented. Definitely try PhotOptimist for your next project, large or small.” L.Robbins, Wellesley, MA

“Beth recently created two gifts for me that can only be described as works of art. Not only did they capture the recipients’ personalities, but they were aesthetically beautiful and struck just the right tone. To say that I am a satisfied customer is a complete understatement. I plan to use Beth whenever I need a personalized gift in the future!” K.Mariscal, Wellesley, MA

“Beth put together a photo and memory book for my 85-year old mother for Mother’s Day. Her children and grandchildren each contributed a photo and a memory or funny story about Gramann. (Even her dog contributed a page!) Beth gave each family member several prompts to get the ideas flowing, collected the photos and stories via email, and put together a fabulous book using my mother’s favorite colors to tie it all together. Beth was fun to work with, had great ideas, and the whole project seemed effortless. We all had fun being a part of it and Gramann was moved to tears when the book arrived in the mail. Best Mother’s Day present ever!” S.Jennings, Wellesley, MA
