Where it all began...
Sweetums Signatures started by accident actually. I had a corporate position where I traveled constantly; I was never home. Liking my job, but miserably missing my home, I did a little soul searching and took a chance…
The word “entrepreneur” is a word we throw around lightly in my family. My mom owns a flower shoppe and my dad owns a tent and table rental business. My in-laws own a salon and an excavating company, and my husband races sprint cars. So naturally it’s in my blood.
I purchased some equipment and started designing and manufacturing decals for my husbands race car. I mean really, how hard could it be? It took a long time to learn the programs and the equipment, but I loved every minute of it. From something that started so small, grew an addiction, a passion, and a way out of my corporate misery.
In January of 2007, Sweetums Signatures was born. I quit my corporate position soon after and never looked back. Since then we’ve added more help and more equipment. I work more then ever, but I absolutely love what I do, and I don’t travel away from home anymore. In October of 2010 my husband and I had our first child, a baby girl. I couldn’t imagine one day without her. I am so thankful for the many blessings in my life, and a true believer that everything really does happen for a reason.

About Our Designers
Ashleigh attended Bowling Green State University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Technology in the Visual Communication Technology program where she specialized in photography and print. Ashleigh has been professionally editing photography since 2008 and began working closer with graphic design and print in 2010. Her love for design has grown as she had an opportunity to work as an in-house designer in early 2012. Since then, she has decided to branch out on her own and devote the majority of her time working with Sweetums Signatures. Along with her passion for photography and graphic design, she also has a love for interior design which makes for a great collaboration with Sweetums.
Ashleigh feels fortunate to do what she loves for a living and when she isn’t having fun behind the computer she loves to spend time outdoors with her husband Jim and their dog Avery. They are excpecting an edition to their beautiful family this winter :).
Margo comes up with many designs for Sweetums Signatures. She attended Kent State University where she graduated Cum Laude with a bachelor of arts degree in visual communications design with a minor in advertising.
Working as an in-house designer and freelance designer, she has successfully managed multiple projects from concept through production in a variety of mediums and continue to have the desire to work in all realms of graphic design. Her passion for life, attention to detail and love of graphic design is reflected through her projects. http://www.mepuffenbergerdesign.com
Our Production Team
Dillon weeds out all of our designs and tapes the decals. He ships, runs errands and all of the above. He works at night during the day and even weekends as long as we provide dinner!
John also weeds out many of our designs. He does a lot of our application jobs from local customers. From semis to pickups, race cars and signs, you name it and John can apply it.
Nevelle is the boss of this entire operation. Production many times needs to hault for her input, a new sippy cup of juice or color time. She oversees all operations and even helps make boxes.
