I want this story to be a series of letters to the military. My girlfriend and I both love Star Wars! We met at a club one night and immediately fell for each other after I asked her to dance to our favorite DJ. Recreate a Star Wars version of this story where instead of the club, we meet at the cantina from Star Wars, replace the DJ with the flute playing aliens, and draw us in an epic lightsaber fight to replace the dancing.
Tellinga sends greeting cards through traditional snail mail. Each image is hand-drawn by a talented Tellinga artist on a 5" x 7" premium 32 pt thick greeting card-sized postcard with cool red edges. It is then placed in a 5.25" x 7.25" brown grocery bag style envelope with the customer's address used as the return address. Before your card is shipped to its location, a charity stamp, and custom wax seal are applied. Afterward, the digital copies of your story are uploaded in the "Download Your Story" section of the website and are also sent to your email to share online with family and friends. Every card shipped helps raise funds to fight Alzheimer's disease, support breast cancer research, or treat those impacted with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Hi, I’m Alexis! I was born, raised, and am currently residing in Connecticut, which is also where I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Illustration.
