The idea for CopperDog came about when we finally realized we couldn't keep ALL the stray buddies we came across, but we still wanted to do something to help out local rescue organizations. As you know, we do have an adopted kitty, Gabardine, and our adopted pup, Buster. We came across another stray dog a little while ago, and unfortunately we couldn't keep him. But we met so many kind and helpful people and organizations in the search for a home for Fat Boi (not our name for him), that we were more inspired than ever to get this business going.
We make handmade etched copper dog tags and pet portraits. All of our products are custom made. 10% of proceeds are donated to local rescue organizations in the hopes that we can help more sweet pets find good loving homes!
We're really excited about this, and we're in the initial stages of launching the business. I'm going to try to do this right, and I may be already jumping the gun. (I probably am.) We have business cards and postcards on the way from vistaprint. Above is the postcard. I posted our first products, handmade etched copper dog tags on our etsy page yesterday evening, and posted a few pics on the new facebook page! Please click and "like" us!
I'm still working on my "Marketing for Makers" home study course, and I have already learned a lot. I know I have a lot more to learn, and I will share things as I go. But I was excited, and I had to go ahead and share CopperDog Studio with you!
More to come as we get rolling! Stay tuned!
