Helping Start Another Sticker Company | The Novel Coffee

My best gal pal Meghan finally opened up an Etsy shop recently and I've been shouting about it from the rooftops. 

It's so nice to finally have someone in real life who is going through the same things Alex and I are. It's really hard to explain the sticker life to people. Like surprisingly difficult and it ends with us calling it "daily scrapbooking" and moving on from talking about it. Although I work with Alex, he and I do very different aspects of our constantly expanding company. So it's unique to be able to work with someone who is doing the same exact things I am, but for her own business. It's already been a blast having someone to bounce ideas off of and talk about how to take stickers into the future.

The Novel Coffee is also completely different from ours. I love that. Obviously so we aren't stepping on each other's toes, but also because I get to experience a whole new style of sticker shop. She deals with artists rather than designing a lot of the artwork herself, but takes so much time selecting art that fits her vibe. It's fantastic and all her stickers are amazing.

I've also never had the chance to share my knowledge before. I don't have that many fellow shop owner friends that I talk to on a regular basis. I have a ton of specialized skills thanks to this dream job so it's been a cool experience getting to share some of them. I would definitely consider helping other Etsy businesses get started or expand since I've enjoyed this process so much. It's a great chance to also help Meghan not make the same start up mistakes we did. And boy are there a lot of them. (Potential blog post?)

So if you're feeling spendy hop on over to her shop and see all of her amazing stuff. The quality is top notch and I'm seriously impressed with how quick her shipping time is. Plus use code "KAYLA" to save 15%! Gotta love being best friends with the shop owner, right?!
