Fox & Fancy

Friday, September 27th, 2013

We are so excited that Fox & Fancy be at Make It for the first time this year! Meet Rachel and Lisa, the ladies who make cunning jewellery, décor, and party trimmings.

What’s the story behind Fox & Fancy?

It’s no secret that we’re both completely obsessed with crafting – it’s what initially drew us together as friends and shortly after, business partners.  I think we were both pretty jealous of the other’s studio space when we first met!  Our mutual love of all things handmade led to many late-night craft and cocktail sessions, and a few months later Fox & Fancy was born.  (Naturally, the friend who introduced us takes all the credit.)  Fox & Fancy just celebrated its first year anniversary, and we’re so excited to see what year two has in store for us!

Port Paper Co.

Wednesday, April 17th, 2013

.

Meet Travis, the creative designer behind Port Paper Co., a letterpress company specializing in simple, sometimes whimsical and environmentally responsible design and coming to Make it Vancouver this spring! Check out his awesome website too: www.portpaperco.com

1. What inspired you to start Port Paper Co.?
The combination of my love for print and obsession with ephemera led to the founding of Port Paper Co. I have to credit my Mom for some of this. She mails out cards for every occasion, big or small. She taught me the wonderment of receiving personal mail. Port Paper Co. is my way of helping keep this tradition alive. For me, receiving one birthday card in the mail is worth a lot more than 100 comments on my wall.
