I'm starting a new series on the Printable Wisdom Design Blog! It's all about small businesses and the people who run them. I want to highlight the people behind the products! Check back each Saturday to get a behind the scenes look at a new small business. Today, I'll be featuring Stephanie from S&S Studios - who also happens to be one of my best friends and next door neighbor!
The name of my small business is... S&S Studios
I came up with it because... it is my first and last initials of my new married name.
And it first opened on... September 5th, 2013
My logo and branding was created by... Ashley (owner of PrintableWisdom)
(that's me, y'all!)
It looks like this and it was inspired by... my favorite color in nature - blue!
I run my business from... my home
And sell... canvas prints of my photographs of nature.
My absolute favorite item is... a three panel canvas print of a photograph I took of aspens while lying on my back looking up at the sky.
But my most popular item is... a picture of wine bottles from the 1800s that I took while in France.
If I had to describe my average customer, she would be... someone who enjoys the beauty of nature.
If I knew someone who wanted to start a small business, I’d tell them... Never give up! It takes a long time to get started, but it is worth every second that you put into it!
The thing that surprised me most about running a small business is... how much fun it can be! It's great to have a creative outlet!
My advice about advertising and marketing is... Pinterest is your new best friend. Visit Stephanie Spann's profile on Pinterest.
In the future, I hope to... add more photographs to my collection.
