We love our clients, and what we love even more is when our clients share their process. We love providing that extra sparkle, shine, and gloss that makes your work stand out, and we also love building community with our clients and their hustles. We want to introduce you to some of our amazing clients, so please check out the work of Amanda Shoemaker from Saved In the Stitch of Time!
I began sewing nearly a decade ago when a friend brought home a machine destined for the landfill. I've combined my love of thrift stores and individual style to create a refashioned clothing line. Creating new pieces using upcycled materials in a fight against fast fashion is my passion. Alterations, mending and custom work is what helps push my business further. I am set up a local farmer's market and offer on the spot services.
I used Tower Press for a majority of my marketing; banners, stickers, business cards. I love supporting an independent business run by hard-working women!

Something we have wanted to do for a long time is make our social channels more about community and y’all! Product shots (and our hands in them) are super fun, but at the end of the day this business was built on collaborative magic. So we’re starting #TPbehindthebrand on Instagram (and will repost here) to introduce you to our amazing clients and their stories. Read below to meet Chandlyr Jackson of Freckled Fuchsia.
I first started Freckled Fuchsia as an outlet for myself to get back into regularly illustrating again, and getting over the fear of sharing my work publicly via Instagram. I was working as a UX Designer at a small company for a few years and found myself behind a screen all the time. I realized that I needed a hands-on and screen-free creative hobby back in my life.
For months, I got back into my drawing groove and practiced consistently, waking up early to squeeze in drawing time in the morning before work, or staying up late to brainstorm new ideas. The more involved my re-discovered hobby had become, the more seriously I took my work by trying out my first artists’ market, and opening up an online shop for my art prints about 8 months ago. Around that time, I decided to take the leap to pursue Freckled Fuchsia full-time because I truly believed in it’s potential. The more confident I felt in myself, the more I realized how much I wanted to develop my own brand, maintain control over who I work with, and have power over how my brand will evolve over time. I’m very self-motivated and thrive independently, so it just felt like the right move.
Since then, I’ve grown my skill set by incorporating more block-printing and textile work because I personally see the value in maintaining a healthy balance of hand craft as well as digital design work for myself. I discovered Tower Press through Native Bear last summer, and was excited to learn that they were also a new company that had only launched a few months prior to when I found them. I used them to order my first batch of 5 art prints (woo!), and have been using their print services for my art ever since. I absolutely love that the card stock is 100% recycled, and I’m obsessed with the texture. I love supporting Tower Press because they work incredibly hard, they’re transparent and I’m always looking to grow my network of companies that share the same environmental and social values as I do.

Hey there! My name is Chris Fafalios, and for the past 22 years of my life, I have made music in the band Punchline. Although writing songs and playing my electric bass has been my passion for most of my life, I enjoy all forms of creative expression. One of the things that I REALLY enjoy is drawing cartoons, and a few years back, I taught myself how to do some basic animation by attending classes at the old YOUTUBE UNIVERSITY (haha!) I cut up audio that I found on the internet, and created videos of myself talking on the phone to a whole bunch of celebrities. Some of these videos slightly caught on, which led to being hired to do work for some really cool bands (such as Weezer, Bowling For Soup, and Anti-Flag).
It was around this time that I saw Susannah’s posts about a company she worked for, and one of the things they made was ENAMEL PINS. I’d always wanted to start my own collection of custom pins, but I didn’t know how to go about it. She helped me every step of the way, and the quality of the pins were OUT OF THIS WORLD. I was so excited to hear when she started Tower Press, and I wouldn’t even CONSIDER going anywhere else with my business. I now have an Etsy shop (ILoveEnamelPins.com) and Instagram @iloveenamelpins where I have over 50 designs of pins, all of which would not exist without the help of Susannah and Tower Press.
Having this small business has been such a fun and rewarding experience, and I’m now fully addicted to designing pins and adding them to my store. In fact, I’m literally placing another order as I send this paragraph. If you’ve ever considered bringing your creations to life, I can’t recommend Tower Press highly enough!

Product shots (and our hands in them) are super fun but at the end of the day this business was built on collaborative magic. So we’re starting #TPbehindthebrand on Instagram (and we'll repost here) to introduce you to our amazing clients and their stories. Read below to meet Grit and Golden.
I’m MacKenzie, owner and jewelry designer of Grit & Golden. I started G&G a little over two years ago after taking a beginner bench jewelry course. I immediately fell in love with the craft and being able to create quality jewelry that mixed my tomboy style, vintage southwestern design, and a touch of femininity. Today, all of my pieces are handcrafted out of my Southern California studio.
Not only do I love making jewelry, I love being a business owner. From day one I knew I wanted G&G to be a little more than jewelry, I wanted it to be a vibe and a memorable brand. However, that part was always a struggle for me and that’s where Tower Press came in!
I found Tower Press on Instagram when they were first starting up and I knew right away they were a company I wanted to work with. Since then, Tower Press has totally helped take my business to the next level. They've made me business cards, many holographic stickers (customers literally ask me for these), a logo stamp, and a few months ago, Jessie created a full branding package for G&G. The branding package was a huge investment for me, but completely worth every penny. I am always impressed with the quality and design that these women strive for, and I feel like I’m talking to my best friends when discussing projects.
The Tower Press women continue to make my little business feel like a million bucks and I love being able to support a fellow female owned business.
