mail·ers: Advertising or marketing announcements sent by mail.
direct mailers | postcard | newsletter | calendar | event | fundraiser | wedding invitations
Direct mailers are one of the best marketing materials. They are sent directly to your client or potential client’s address. Mailers can really make an impact for getting new business or highlighting your latest project, event, fundraiser, product, or service. Your design should be powerful, eye catching, and informative. If you have an upcoming newsletter, event, fundraiser, exhibition, new product, or new service, Susan Searway Art & Design would be honored to design your direct mailer, postcard, invitation, etc.

Bay Model Visitor Center | Bi-Monthly Calendar | Mailer
Susan Searway Art & Design has worked for the Bay Model Visitor Center 2003-present being their graphic designer and website designer. To advertise these special environmental education programs they need a bi-monthly calendar. Every other month I am in charge of creating their Bi-Monthly Calendar of Events. This is a project that I just love because their educational programs are so informative about the environment.
Once their calendar is approved I will then convert it into a variety of different formats from individual press releases for each program, an emailer campaign, the calendar transfers onto their website, and the events are also entered into a variety of marketing event online calendars.
Wedding Invitation Designs | RSVP Cards | Directions | Envelopes | Program | Thank You Cards
Susan Searway Art & Design has designed wedding invitations and items for your special day. It is wonderful to work with each couple to visually create their vision and set the mood for their most wedding day. The couple of the below designs had a love for redwood trees. So we incorporate the tree in all their design. We have also designed invitations focusing on Marin Open space, pictures taken from a couple’s home, the ocean, etc. To create custom design for each couple is our focus.
Bridal Shower | Invitations | Envelopes
Like wedding invitations we also design bridal shower invitations. This bride loved The Wizard of Oz, so we took the gingham design and incorporated it and the blue color into this design. Instead of having a registry she wanted recipes so we designed kitchen utensil icons as well. Making designs individualized is what Susan Searway Art & Design does best.
Zephyr Experience | Brochure | Registration Form | Mailers
Pro-Bono Brochure & Registration Flier for Zephyr Experience
Throughout the year lots of companies and organizations approach graphic designers and website designers to do pro-bono work for them. Sometimes you can afford to volunteer, give them a nonprofit design rate, and other times you simply can’t.
For four years I served on the Zephyr Experience committee. Zephyr Experience is a week long spiritual retreat held right on the shorelines of Lake Tahoe in Zephyr Cove. It is a wonderful week full of great classes, relaxing afternoons, free time to spend at the beach or hike in the hills, fellowship and worship in the evenings.
I have donated my services to design their marketing brochure and registration form both for print and email version all years between 2010–2019. Below are images of some of the designs.
