Now for some info about Liza & Daniela!
Hi, my name is Liza Pizarro-White and I started DL Personalized Gifts with my best friend for the last 21 years, Daniela Hudock. We have now been doing this for 4 years.
[Daniela] We love to create things that are useful and make children smile. Kids love to see their names on things. I wish there were more stores like ours as children, since our names were nearly impossible to find. As far as our invitation/card line, we love to creat cool trendy designs that make the item unique. We customize each of our invitations to our customers need, including language, theme, etc.
We got started because of our children. We wanted to send the birthday party guests home with a creative useful party favor. We were tired of getting sent home with a goody bag filled with candy and small plastic toys. So, our first product was a personalized hair kit filled with a personalized brush and hair accessories. That holiday season we sold them to family and friends…and that was the start of DL Personalized Gifts. As we thought more about this new business we added a full invitation/holiday card line that was customized to meet the needs of the individual client. We are definitely finding success. Every day we are getting postitive feedback from our clients. Our business has bloomed mainly by word of mouth. Most of our clients are local so we’d love to get the word out to others who can enjoy our products.
Daniela was an elementary school teacher who always used creativity to make her lessons more fun for the kids. I am a computer software training specialist who was always into creativity and coming up with ways to make computer training more fun. Scrapbooking was my first love and then onto creating unique greeting cards and birthday invitations for my family.
We feel that now that we are mothers, we know what children enjoy and choose our products based on that. But we also feel that it’s always important to make time for yourself. With the busy lives we lead, we take this opportunity to spend together doing things we enjoy.
The kids love to mimic what their mom is doing and sit down and draw while I work. I have learned a lot from my kids. When it comes to my products & art is that kids love color! The more color the better.
