How Cherished Prints Started

Christmas Eve of 2011, Melissa Fox-Austin received the most wonderful yet heartbreaking gift in the world. She became a full-time caregiver to her terminally ill mother, Madonna Fox, and stay at home mom to her then 9-month-old son. Melissa was able to spend two months with her mom before she passed away, learning as much as possible from her mother’s sweetness, kindness, and generosity, while she gave her mother love, family, and comfort.

After her mom passed from cancer on February 28, 2012, Melissa looked online for a memorial announcement but was appalled by the outdated and poorly designed options available. After much reflection and soul searching Melissa design the Dandelion Collection. She kept the design beautifully simple, clean, sweet, and a little wistful for things left undone. The end of her mom’s life was strongly marked by the beginning of her son’s. Thus, the wind blowing the dandelion seeds to start the next generation. This collection means a lot to Cherished Prints. Melissa put her heart and tears into designing it.

Dandelion Celebration of Life ProgramWith the inspiration of her mother’s memorial stationery, Melissa saw a need that wasn’t being met and created a line of beautifully and professionally designed funeral programs, invitations, thank you cards, prayer cards, bookmarks, and memory cards.

On March 6, 2012, Melissa started her line of memorial stationery through an online store on Etsy. On May 22, 2012, she sold her first listing. Melissa was the first to offer funeral stationery on Etsy. Now 3 years and over 725 sales later, we are proud and honored to launch the Cherished Prints’ online store.
