Printing and Production Partners Guide for Stationers and Lifestyle Shop Owners

Printing and Production Partners Guide for Stationers and Lifestyle Shop Owners


So, friend. You're a small business owner, and you likely sell lifestyle products, offer printed stationery, or both. Maybe you've been painting all of your greeting cards by hand, and want to find a wholesale partner to produce larger quantities of cards at a time - in a way that will ensure the quality is just as beautiful as your original painting.

Maybe you're a wedding stationer, and you want to expand the color options and styles you provide to your couples - and swear there has to be a more affordable option than Paper Source. (Trust me, there is - and there are so many more colors available!!)

Or maybe you have a great lifestyle product company you're working with, but you're sick of the high minimums and endless inventory taking over your spare bedroom - and you want to switch to a drop shipping company so you can get your time and your life back!

Friend, I hear ya. I've been in business for over five years, and I've gone through it all. I've gone through countless trial and error with bad printing and production companies, wasted money using retail sources rather than wholesale ones, and spent hours upon sleepless hours spent googling - searching for the best vendors.

And I do not want you to spend your precious time and resources doing the same. 

So, I have created a comprehensive 47 page Printing and Production Partners Guide, made specifically for stationers and lifestyle shop owners!! I am truly excited for you to invest in this guide & community, because it means that you are ready to take the next step in your business toward outsourcing printing and production with the absolute best vendors around!
