About Us

& Resplendent Design


Howdy! We're Tess and Olivia of Resplendent Design Company. We are two friends who are excited to share our love with others through artwork and can’t wait to hear from you! Feel free to contact us if you are interested in a piece or simply want to say hi! We love making new friends and connections.


Resplendent Sidekicks

Olivia's Belgian Malinois mix & Tess' German Shorthaired Pointer


These two trusty assistants are thick as thieves! When they met, it was love at first sight. Since then, these two good girls have taken on their Resplendent sidekick roles with ease.

Although they aren’t able to offer much design input, they provide critical entertainment for workplace morale. When they aren’t napping at the feet of designers at work, they can usually be found running furious circles in the backyard together or playing an intense game of tug throughout the house.

Frequently Asked Questions

...and answers

Placing an order is very easy! For complete instructions, simply scroll down to our How To Order section.

That’s a great question! Each piece is custom made by hand with the greatest of care. Due to every piece being slightly different, the prices all vary as well!

Cost is based on:

  • The size of design: Smaller pieces are typically more affordable than larger pieces.
  • Intricacy of design: A very simple design tends to be more affordable than an incredibly detailed design.
  • Cost of materials: For example, paper is often more affordable than glass or wood.
  • The Completion Time Frame: If you need a piece completed immediately, there may be a “Rush Order Charge.”
If you are curious how much your piece would cost, please contact us and we will be more than happy to provide you with a free quote!

Best question ever! You can pay with PayPal, Venmo, Check or Cash. Just contact us if you need more info. (Click an icon, below, to go to PayPal or Venmo.)

Yes! We will gladly ship completed pieces to you! Just give us the address where you would like it shipped, pay shipping and handling, then wait by your door until the mailman comes!

Yes! We would love to teach you hand lettering and/or watercolor! We do private lessons in Phoenix, Arizona for $75 an hour.

We're also available for girl's night events, bachelorette parties, Bible study groups, etc.! Classes will typically range in cost from $20-$70 per person depending on the number of participants, length of lesson, and types of lessons desired.

Interested? Contact us with your event and we can arrange a class time!

You bet we do! Weddings are some of our favorite events to create works of art for! Take a peek at the “Wedding Gallery” for some inspiration.

We can make chalkboard signage, glass signage, seating charts, table numbers, place cards, wedding invitations, envelope lettering, thank you cards, dinner menus, bridal shower signs, etc. Send us a message with your ideas and we can provide you with a free quote for your big day!

Yes, we sure do! Prints are a great way to get beautiful artwork at a more affordable price. These pieces are a fraction of the cost and make great gifts! Contact us to let us know which piece you would like a print of and we can get it made for you.

If you order a custom piece and would like prints made, we are happy to accommodate that as well. For example, we love to make custom greeting and holiday cards for clients that they can order prints from!

We are big fans of the Tombow Fudenoseke, Tombow Dual Brush Pens, Sigma Micron Pens, and POSCA pens. Depending on the piece that we're creating, we will switch it up, but those are our go-to pens when hand lettering!

If you are ordering a custom piece, it is made uniquely by hand; therefore, it does require a bit of time to make quality art! We typically quote 4-6 weeks to process and ship a custom order; however, this varies based on the piece you need and your timeline!

When we discuss your vision for the artwork, cost, etc., we will also discuss timeline. We can usually accommodate any timeline, but there are “rush-order” costs for pieces that need to be completed with short notice.

If you are ordering prints of a piece of artwork that is already completed, you will typically receive your piece within 1-2 weeks, if not sooner. We can always rush the shipping, if needed, for an additional fee.

Maybe! We absolutely love being able to meet clients and fellow artists, get to know them better, and drink coffee! We are currently located in Phoenix, Arizona so if you are nearby and would like to discuss a potential order or chat about various art techniques, shoot us a message!

Please don’t hesitate to contact us and we'll answer all of your remaining questions!

How to Order

It's Easy!

How do I place an order?

Placing an order is easy—simply contact us through your favorite method! You can email Tess at, use the Contact form on this website, message us on Instagram or Facebook, or if you are feeling ambitious, send a delivery bird to us with your order! We are not picky on contact method - we just love hearing from you guys!

If you already know exactly what you want, great! If not, we can discuss what type of piece you are imagining and then give you a free estimate before you decide whether to move forward with the order.

Simply follow the steps below:

  1. Contact us through your preferred method below and let us know what sort of piece you would like to receive a quote for. If you are ordering a custom piece, the more information you can provide about the piece (size, color, preferred date of completion, design concept, etc.), the more accurate your quote will be! If you aren’t exactly sure what you want, that is perfectly fine. We can brainstorm together until we create a piece that you are thrilled with!

  2. Once we receive information about the piece you would like, we will provide a quote. From there, you can decide if you would like to move forward with the design or make minor adjustments. Once your design is finalized, we will give you an estimated date of completion and get to work on your custom piece!

  3. When your order is ready, it will be shipped to your preferred address or you will be contacted to schedule a pick-up time. You will also be given the final invoice at this time. We accept payment via PayPal, Venmo, Check, or Cash.
