Some of you are asking how I’m faring in my search for a new business partner to print and ship my pillows, totes, scarves, and tees at Pen Jar Productions. 👚 👕

First, THANK YOU! 😘

The answer is: I’m doing my due diligence, researching my options online, talking to friends, drinking tea ☕️, and building a chart in Excel. 💻

I put said chart in the cloud ☁️ so I can share it with other creatives who are also looking for the same thing. We are building it together!

In a perfect world this printing partner would:

Be in Canada 🇨🇦

• Use fabrics Made In Canada ✂ (ethical/sustainable)

• Utilize POD and DTG technology 🖨

• Integrate with Shopify 🛒

• Take shipping off my hands 📬

• Be committed to sustainability 🌎

• Have no minimum spend (my loft is cute, but it’s not big enough to take on inventory)

If anyone has any ideas, I’m all ears. 👂

My chart includes the pros and cons on:

Art of Where

Spoonflower

Contrado

Printify

Printful

Supply & Demand

Pigeons & Thread

TeeHatch

Printeez

Raincoast Digital

Tentree

SugarBomb

(and several more …)
