No Products in the Cart
I’ll be updating this page every once in a while as I come across more tools and information that may be helpful to other artists.
Some of the links on this page are “referral links.” This means that you will receive a discount if you click on the link to purchase the item/service, and in return I will receive a small amount back as credit to use on those sites at no additional cost to you. This helps me greatly with printing and other miscellaneous business costs. I have included non-referral links as well however if you choose not to.
Regardless, I only recommend products and services that I use personally on a regular basis. Feel free get in touch if you have any questions or would like to discuss anything art-related at all :)
I currently use Procreate and Clip Studio Paint
on an iPad Pro 10.5" for raster based work.
For vector based work, I use
Adobe Illustrator and Affinity Designer.
My business cards are printed through Moo. Out of the few different printing companies I’ve tried out for printing business cards, I’ve found them to have the best quality and variety of options available, along with great customer service.
My stickers are all printed through StickerMule. I have only personally ordered their Custom Die Cut Stickers and Round Stickers so far but quality-wise, they have always exceeded my expectations. Most of my orders have also arrived a week early with revisions completed within 10-24 hours. You can either set up your own cut lines or have them help you set it up free of charge. To the best of my knowledge, they also offer unlimited free revisions along with sample prints in the $10 range if you’d like to run a test print.
My tote bags are currently printed and shipped through Printful. They offer a selection of products which you can then link to different e-commerce platforms (such as Shopify, Etsy, etc.) They fulfill orders as they come in and take care of the shipping for you. This is a good option if you are unable to invest a large initial amount in having products printed without knowing if they’ll sell. The downside is that your profits will be smaller and you won’t be personally packaging each product, but I feel they’re worth it if you are just starting out or trying out a new product.
All small items such as stickers, enamel pins, and charms are shipped by myself using ChitChats. Shipping from Canada tends to be quite pricey and including tracking often costs a lot more than I’m comfortable charging. ChitChats offers lower postage rates to Canadian businesses to reduce shipping costs to the U.S., Canada and internationally using a variety of carriers.
