I started Studio Patty D in 2020 as a direct response to Covid-19. I have owned and operated Image Awards & Engraving since 1994 and we really took a hit when the shut down occurred in March and April - the busiest time of year for us. Even once re-opened, all the awards banquets were cancelled, sports were out, and people just weren't getting any engraving done.
I started painting & playing with mixed media in 2016. Originally a scrap-booker, it was a natural progression. I loved it and have enjoyed it as a hobby for myself ever since. It was at the prompting of friends and family, and the fact that I had all the equipment and expertise to make it happen, that I started imprinting my art on products, and Studio Patty D was born.
"Celebrate life's moments, and make it fun"! (I know, more than 5 words. :) )
I'm no stranger to difficult moments in business after being at it for 28 years, but I will say that the pandemic and the resulting shut down had to be the most difficult. To go from thriving to crickets over night was life altering.
The most satisfying part of my business is that I get to make stuff (I love making stuff), and I get to make people happy. Whether it's through engraving & recognition products, or whimsical cosmetic bags, I get to bring smiles to the faces of the people who's lives I touch. It's magic.
One thing I can say about my business at Studio Patty D, is that the products I make cannot be found anywhere else on the planet! Guaranteed.
Don't give up.
