Welcome to my little online community for designers. I get tons of questions every day from fellow designers so I wanted to create a space where I could share my favourite tips and resources with them! I have some freebies to download, helpful blogs posts. I also have a few templates in my Etsy Shop.  Our community firmly believes in community over competition.

Clients can log in to a portal to view everything all in one place. They are always so greatful for how easy and streamlined the process is thanks to dubsado.

Contract Shop

I don’t know about you but legal stuff makes my head spin, despite how important it is. The contract shop is my favourite resource when it comes to making sure i’m legally covered within my business. It’s given me such a peace of mind knowing i’m protected. They do contracts not just for designers, but bloggers, photographers and all sorts of other businesses.

I’m covered with policybee and I love them. They are affordable, do a wide range of cover to suit your business. I’ve never had a problem with them and always find them super helpful. Even better, if you let them know you was sent their way by me, you get a £20 cheque in the post! Just like that! Say Kern & Ink Studio sent you.
