Q + A

1. Tell us about yourself- who are you, and what do you do?
My name is Nikki! I create custom merchandise and promotional products for a wide variety of clients and brands. I make it my business to know the in's and out's of any brand, so that they can outsource all their gifting and personalized item needs. From designing, sourcing, manufacturing & tracking, I am a one-stop-shop that clients can trust. 

2. What is your favorite thing about what you do?
I have a background in graphic design and art, so everything I create is hand-designed to my client's needs. The design process is my favorite aspect - from the client's desired artwork on the item to the item itself! I love taking an idea and making it reality.

3. What currently inspires you?
Give-back items! I'm seeing a huge change in our industry that is sustainable and charitable.

4. What are you looking forward to for your business/ brand this year? 
This year, I look forward to a new branch of our business - PPE! We have always had the ability to create custom masks, gloves, hand sanitizers, etc. but with COVID-19 at large, we are seeing an influx of clients wanting custom PPE. While most of my business this year has been blank PPE materials, I look forward to adding my artistic flare to an otherwise boring item. Things as simple as adding a smiley face to a mask really adds a human touch, while promoting my client's brand.

5. What do you want people to know about your work?
Our industry has a reputation for being cheap, throw-away items. I love my job because of our capabilities outside of that space. Some of my favorite projects have actually been high-end retail items like customized Patagonia jackets & branded Yeti Coolers! We can access around 80% of the retail market and cobrand to them.
