Forget Sunday Funday, it’s Maker Monday! On Monday’s we feature a different maker & brand in a dedicated blog post & on our social media feeds. We carry so many incredible brands in the store & want to make sure the world knows about them! This week we’d like to introduce you to Annie & her company Pier Prints! If you’ve been into the shop, you know we basically have a wall of coffee mugs. From classic sayings to sassy & cheeky, Pier Prints has a mug for everyone! Pier Prints mugs are dishwasher & microwave safe, a game changer in the coffee mug world. Annie also does custom mugs & wine glasses with any sayings you can come up with!
“I have always been a ‘creative’ stuck in a ‘business’ brain. Fiends and family would always task me with crafts, whether it was to decorate their room, design wedding invitations, or make a sign for their home. In 2015 was when my professional crafting journey began. I started my small shop, Pier Prints. It first started as a creative outlet for my crazy life. At that time, I was. marketing student at Kwantlen University while also maintaining a full-time job. As Pier Prints continued to grow so rapidly, I was no longer able to hand press enough mugs to keep stores stocked & stay on top of my customer orders too. What really started out as s side project, has brought me to a full time career as an entrepreneur.”
In 2018, Annie opened up The Heart Cloverdale, (she just celebrated her 1st year anniversary!) The Heart is a retail location & a co-working space in the heart of downtown Cloverdale. Born & raised in Cloverdale, it only made sense for Annie to set up shop & put down her entrepreneurial roots here. Annie has worked hard to bring a unique and first of its kind co-working space to Cloverdale, BC. Upon entering The Heart, the front is a dedicated retail location which is now home to Pier Prints, your fav local brands including K’pure & The Unwrapped life as well as the most fabulous sourced clothing. Beyond the retail space you will find a huge harvest table, a couple offices & some co-working desks. Great conversations, ideas are formed, events & meetings are held around the harvest table. This space is a gold mine in Cloverdale, it really brings the community together & makes entrepreneurship a little less lonely.
