We know things like custom enamel pins, foil business cards, and holographic stickers can be a big investment. As a small business ourselves, maintaining cash flow while making sure you're able to get the goods and services you need can be, well, a headache!
We're excited to now offer Quadpay, a service that lets you split your payments into 4 different installments. This is available on any custom printing or small business coaching service $35 and over.
During the checkout process, click the Quadpay option and you'll be directed to complete the transaction. Easy! We're so excited to be able to offer this service and hope it makes those bigger purchases a little easier!
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.
Follow along on Chandlyr's journey viaInstagram. We've been so thrilled to work with her on customart printsandkraft labels. Browse our website for tons of custom printing and design options, we look forward to featuring YOU next!
Foil printing is one of our most popular services for business cards and postcards. With so many colors and add-ons available, it's a great way to add some creative flair to your branding (and hellooooo did you see our new colors?). But also, what the heck are we talking about when we say we need separate foil files?
We know not everyone is a graphic designer, and sometimes setting up files for printing can be super confusing. This quick guide creates a visual for setting up files for foil printing properly.
Depending on how many sides you want your foil to print, we will either need 3 files, or 4 files: one file for both your front and back, and a file that notes what you want foil stamped.
Make sure the elements you want foil stamped are taken out of your front and back files completely. These need to be on separate files, and in 100% K (black).
Upload or email your files as hi-res PDFs, and the end result will be beautiful, premium quality foil stamped cards. We went with the holographic for ours!
If you need help with set up, our team is always willing to help. Email us with your request and our design team will work with you on getting the elements you need to create stellar cards.
Our team recently handpicked some brand new foil colors -- available on premium foil business cards and die cut business cards. We know how important creativity and standing out is, and these are designed to do just that! Create some beautiful, cosmic business cards that will wow 'em. After all, your business card is an extension of yourself.

Something we have wanted to do for a long time is make our social channels and blog is highlight more of our 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 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.
In late February of 2018 I left my job of nearly 7 years. I had a routine, knew what to expect every single day, it was easy. I could do it with my eyes closed. But that was the problem. I wasn't being challenged. I was bored. On top of that, I wasn't appreciated and I wasn't being paid fairly. It took a long time, but I was finally able to see that I have value, and if I'm not being valued where I am, I will go somewhere else. So, with very little planning and very little money, I decided to start Tower Press. I didn't do it alone though.
Leela of Native Bear was imperative to those first few months, agreeing to help front a website template and first month's rent at our current location in Georgia. Her initial investment allowed me to take a big leap of faith. I am not kidding when I say I had NO backup plan. I probably only had a few hundred dollars in my bank account. But, I trusted myself and I trusted in my abilities. Going from knowing what to expect all the time to NEVER knowing what to expect any of the time was very, very scary for this Type-A individual.
But, here we are! We did it! We crossed the threshold to the one-year mark, and that's huge! And I didn't do that alone either. That is all Y'ALL! 327 clients spread across 4 different countries. I am grateful for each and every one of you who choose to work with us. Tower Press has really turned into a wonderful community of badass go-getters that I am inspired by every day. We've definitely had to change a little and adapt along the way, but I love this baby business, our commitment to putting the client first, and always offering the most creative services we can.
I don't always have "it" together. Nearly every day I am learning something new about being a businesswoman and better human. There are days I have big cries at my desk and days where I feel like we're on top of the world. I'm thankful for every teaching moment this business has given me, and can't wait for the next 365+ days. I have a lot of BIG goals for us, see you along the way!
