Persnickety Prints

Chari converted to digital scrapbooking over 5 years ago, but could not find a quality, archival 12x12 print at an affordable price. After her long search, she saw a need and created her own; Persnickety Prints. Before founding Persnickety Prints, Chari helped numerous organizations increase their online presence and revenue through her creative services. Chari's excellent retail knowledge and expertise comes from over 10 years of service at the retail industry giant, GAP. When Chari is not working on the next innovative business idea, she is calling a customer about their low resolution image or driving one of her 3 boys to a soccer game, tennis lesson, or scouts. You may also catch her at the nearest gas station grabbing a 44 oz. Diet Pepsi (mixed with a little cherry coke + extra ice). Date nights with her Husband of 14 years usually consist of a long single track mountain bike ride, skiing, fishing, or camping. She enjoys playing soccer on a local “soccer mom” indoor team. Chari is Persnickety in all things.
