Tell us about your business.InkSpot Workshop was born in 2008 as my obsession for all things paper and ink grew larger. I couldn't find what I was looking for in stores or online at the time, so I taught myself graphic design and started having fun! Bright, modern invitations, stationery and personalized gifts are our specialty at InkSpot Workshop. We're also your one stop shop for the dog lover who has everything. Our exclusive brand Fire Hydrant Press allows you to choose your favorite dog breed (we have thousands in our library or will make one custom just for you) and personalize your item as you wish. We're anchored out of Atlanta, Georgia were we design, hand finish and ship the majority of our designs. When I'm not in the workshop, you'll find me with my 2 boys and our family dog Winston.
What makes your business stand out?One-on-one communication with the customer. Each of our products is personalized by our customers and they want to be able to connect with a real person if they have any questions about their order. This also makes for a smooth custom design experience.
What's the best business advice you've received?Don't think too much about it, just jump in and do it!
