Ink the Print in VIX Emporium (West Philly)

Our products have been in this little gem for a year now. VIX Emporium is in a really pretty part of West Philly right on Baltimore Ave. It's located in Cedar Park, which is part of University City section of West Philadelphia. The name "VIX" is actually the roman numeral for their address, 5009. Clever. The owner, Emily, is super sweet and her shop is perfectly curated with local artists and other indie makers. The store used to be a millinery way back in the day, and I think it's wonderful they've maintained some of that style. VIX Emporium is a great spot...

Ink the Print in Philadelphia

So I just wrote about our work being sold in a brick & mortar shop in Houston, welllll, Ink the Print can now also be found in this adorable shop in Philadelphia, Nice Things...Handmade. This boutique/gallery offers ALL things handmade. It's in East Passyunk, same neighborhood as the two cheese steak rivals Pat's & Geno's! I actually blogged last fall about this area when we visited the Italian Market. John and I are discovering this South Philly neighborhood is pretty great, if we ever lived in the city, perhaps it'd be here (but don't worry family, we're not leaving our beloved South Jersey.)  ^ Elissa, the...

Tapiture is often referred to as the "Pinterest for dudes." Instead of "pinning" items on the web, you "tap" them. And though Tapiture may be geared more towards males, females enjoy the site...

Summer Business Tasks and Feeling (((Accomplished)))

Summer Business Tasks and Feeling (((Accomplished)))

  Lately, most of my time working on Ink the Print has been on the computer. Updating our shops, improving our SEO, editing photos, switching web hosts, designing our website (again), emailing customers, ordering supplies, planning out the next few months, working on this here blog, etc. I'm beginning to fully realize this list will be never-ending. But this is the time of year to really work on a certain number of these things, for we will (hopefully) be rather busy in the upcoming months. One of the great things about this type of work is I can do it almost anywhere, allowing John...

My Mind's Been (((Busy)))

My Mind's Been (((Busy)))

  Although we still have so far to go, I'm pretty proud of what John and I have built with Ink the Print. And I honestly spend almost every spare moment thinking about and working on our little company. It may be a bit obsessive, but it works for me :-) I'm happy. But yes, my mind has been so busy. I find myself not truly paying attention to people in conversations because of it. I need to stop that because one day I'm going to find myself smiling, nodding, and agreeing at a terribly inappropriate moment or something.   Summer sales are...
