Made in the USA

IMG_4085 copy

While we strive to make all of our products in the USA, we currently manufacture over 75% in our Springdale facility where our designers, sewers and assembly team work together to produce the majority of our products. We source what we do not do in-house locally such as our printing, paper and all raw materials made in the USA.

For those items not available in the USA we source world-wide to find the best quality, cost effective and suitable for our production needs including some of our fabrics, wooden items and embellishments.

Our Mission

“To enhance people’s lives by making products that create a perfect canvas in the home, to respect the environment and simplify everyday living.”

Our Environment

We strive to make environmentally smart decisions whenever possible. Our papers are all made from recycled materials, including our Kraft which is 100% recycled and we print with soy inks. We focus on natural resources that are renewable and do not leave a carbon footprint. We design our products with minimum packaging or reusable packaging. We also do our best to use all of our raw materials and thus the creation of one of best selling products, the Canvas Corp Burlap and Canvas Flowers. Each one is handmade and no two are alike and we love that. If we all do a little bit, then together we can make a big difference.

Canvas Corp Brands Sponsors Renegade Craft Fair

Canvas Corp Brands, a US manufacturer of craft supplies, is excited to announce their sponsorship of the 2014 Winter Renegade Craft Fair. The Renegade Craft Fair began as a place to host and highlight independent artisans and craft businesses and has since blossomed into the nation’s largest DIY/craft fair.

_MG_4871
Burlap flowers are among the many products that are hand-sewn in our factory located in Springdale, Arkansas.

“We chose to sponsor RCF because we believe in their mission of advancing independent artisans,” says Christine Meier, owner of Canvas Corp Brands. “We also found a commonality among our company and RCF makers–a commitment to quality, handmade products. Many people don’t know, but the majority of the products that we produce are handmade right here in our USA factory.”

Despite having a commonality, however, Canvas Crop Brands also serves as an affordable resource for makers and independent artisans. “My husband and I started Canvas Corp Brands nearly 7 years ago, so we understand the financial burden of running your own business. We want to be a reliable resource for these independent business owners when it comes to packaging, marketing, booth display, product development etc. We have a breadth of products that are not only available at an affordable cost but also are made with high attention to detail. It is our hope that RCF makers turn to Canvas Corp Brands for items such as tags, cards, canvas and burlap blanks, etc.”

They’ve custom designed a burlap and canvas tote bag that will be given to each vendor in all participating US Cities. The bag was designed by Meier and is sized 16″ x 18″ with one side containing ivory burlap and the other 14 oz. canvas and is further customized with the RCF logo.

Maker Spotlight: Sally by the Sea

Located on a little island off the coast of Washington, you’ll find a sweet, caring and incredibly talented individual, Sally Moore. Sally is the owner and creative brain behind Sally by the Sea, an Etsy shop dedicated to handcrafted tea towels, pillows and more. We spoke with Sally to hear more about her business and were pleasantly surprised to hear about her journey.

Q: Why did you begin Sally by the Sea?

A: In 2009, I left my day job and was looking for something unique to do on the island, but I didn’t have a lot of talent. I wanted to combine something I loved with something that I was good at, and that something was painting. One Saturday I attended a local farmer’s market and got the idea to make hand-painted tea towels, and the rest is history.

il_570xN.415339293_chrgQ: How has your business expanded since you began?

A: My business has grown so much since I first started. On the island, plastic bags are not given out in stores so I expanded to hand-painted totes. My line now includes wine bags, tote bags, pillows, and tea towels.

Q: What inspires the designs on your products?

A: My surroundings inspire the designs. I have quite the view when I wake up and look out my window, it’s rather spectacular. Most of my designs are related to Lopez Island where I live and things that make me smile.

Q: Since you’ve grown, do you still do everything by hand?

A: I’ve outgrown my living room, so I moved to my backyard and created an office where I now have my own screen-printing studio. The designs are still hand painted and then screen-printed onto the items. However, the handmade aspect is very important to me, so I make sure that every piece is still hand-painted. After they’re screen-printed I paint over the artwork to ensure that each item is different.

Q: What has been the highlight of running your own business with handmade products?

A: Running my own business is great because it makes me excited to get up every day. I know I’m doing something for me and I’m doing something for the economy.

il_570xN.272943674Q: How has Canvas Corp Brands helped you grow?

A: They’ve definitely been a huge help. If it weren’t for Canvas Corp I’d still be printing on tea towels. If anything, they’ve given me many more ideas on items to screen-print on and have expanded my product line.

Q: Where can we get your amazing products?

A: I sell through many retail stores on my island but I also have an Etsy shop and a Facebook page where consumers can purchase.

Thank you Sally, for telling us about your inspiring journey. We are so glad we could be apart of the process! If you’re a maker who is interested in creating your own line of products, we’d love to help! Send us an email today to see how we can work together!

Canvas Home Basics Introduces a “French Inspired” Paper Collection

The “French Inspired” Collection was created in a combination of Red & Ivory, Black & Ivory and Black & Kraft papers that were inspired by vintage French fabrics and linens leading us to a collection of Toile, French vintage graphics and a series of French Sayings (it is written in English too in the fine print) that are perfect for card making, mini books, scrapbooking pages and more. We love how they work so well together and with current papers. There are 6 prints on ivory and 6 on kraft that bring a vintage/modern look when printed. They are perfect for layering, background papers, or uses as is for cards.

Project Idea #1

This card was created with 2 sheets from our 5×7 printed paper pad that were put together with a strip of paper tape to create the prefect 5×7 card base. The pads are available in ivory & black and kraft & black with scaled down versions of our favorite canvas home basics papers.

Project Idea #2

Our black eflute is a great texture when paired with this collection. We added a few tags from our new Kraft Tall Tags – just one little stamp is all you need. These stamps are part of the our new stamp collection we designed for Hampton Art. To see them all here is the link. You can buy them through us or directly from Hampton Art.

Project Idea #3

One thing we love about our cardstock, is that it makes great cards. Each of the papers is a perfect background paper that stands alone. Adding fun pieces from the French Sayings, Printed Tags or cutouts of the paper complete this card. If you are looking for a great line to do thank you notes, trendy wedding invitations or shower invites, this line is classic and fun to work with.
