A Quick Word About Shopping Small:

When you shop with small businesses, handmade makers, and American made artisans your purchases make a direct impact on many lives. For instance, in our case, when you shop with us, we then also support other small, local businesses. How? We source our materials from US-based and US-manufacturing producers & distributors for our papers (like Domtar Cougar and French Paper), inks ( we use mainly Speedball), screens, squeeges, output films (all from Pittsburgh’s own Tech Support Screenprinting Supplies) and more. We also wholesale our art work to many independent shops (local favorites Wildcard in Lawrenceville and Sapling & Sons in Beaver, PA) around the country who do more of the same and support more small businesses in turn.

We think it’s a pretty great cycle; we hope that you do too. Best & brightest! Happy Holidays to all!
