Canvas Corp (Canvas Home Basics) was the first brand under the Canvas Corp Brands LLC umbrella and was developed with the goal to fill a void in the market of high quality craft, DIY and paper crafting basic supplies. The focus is on the basics and offering a wide range of items that can be mixed and matched to make functional, quality craft and home décor pieces.
The line ranges from a large selection of printed cardstock papers, specialty papers, canvas, burlap, clothespins, cards, tags, bags, cords, ropes and a host of sewn items such as pillows, aprons, totes, stockings, pennants, banners, books, table runners, table tops and much more.
While we globally source some items and materials within the brand, all of our sewn items are sewn by our team in our Springdale, Arkansas warehouse. All of our printed cardstock is made in the USA and printed locally allowing us to quality control every print run and to keep the business in our community. Many of our other items are made and assembled in our facility as well, with a sprinkling of items sourced from around the world.
The Canvas Corp markets under the brand Canvas Home Basics will continue to expand by offering craft basics that support a wide range of markets including crafts, scrapbooking, invitation makers, makers, artists, mixed media artists, DIY’ers, teachers, classroom crafts, party planners, event planners, Etsy shop owners and more. We love to support the maker market and help bring your ideas to reality. If there are items you are not able to find we would love to hear from you and see if we can help email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
the story….while building their first home together co-founders Christine and Randy Meier saw a huge void in the market for creative home decor products that we part of today’s everyday lifestyle. Both with extensive experience in the craft industry, Christine staring her career as a buyer with Walmart in the craft department at the age of 23 and had the opportunity to work with suppliers, factories and stores to buy and create craft products for the craft market. Her love of creating products, finding opportunity for new ideas and filling creative voices began and after 5 years with Walmart she set out on her own and the start of their first company DMD Industries (The Paper Reflections Collection) began. Shortly after the brand was launched, she was joined by husband, Randy Meier who brought his accounting, financial and operations experience to the team and together they created a brand that supported the just beginning scrapbooking market. The company sold 6 years later into a group of creative companies under the umbrella, Creativity Inc. Stepping out of the market to fulfill their non-compete the team used their expertise to help small businesses in the NW Arkansas area, but their love the craft industry did not go away and when the time was right a new idea emerged, Canvas Corp.
The brand Canvas Home Basics with the tag line quality and style if featured on all products, representing the true desire for producing first rate products, a focus on USA manufacturing and making environmentally smart choices when it comes to packaging, production and distribution. Working with natural materials, limited packaging, finding creative ways to use scraps and left over materials and a focus on contributing little to no waste. Canvas Corp strives to produce locally, they do source quality products from around the world that round out the line, with the goal to keep a balanced focus on decisions that help the environment, support USA production and maintain the ability to offer a stellar program.
The collection began with products to support building and designing a home with creative details and has transformed into a brand that offers a full range of basics that have not limits and cross over into many markets. With the introduction of Pinterest, Etsy and Makers, Canvas Corp stepped in to fill the need of products that allow the creative diy’er to bring their ideas to life for personal or small business needs. The collection continues to grow in the directions led by their customers. The original business plan was to focus more on creativity and less on production, but that model quickly changed with the need for manufacturing becoming more and more important. Today Canvas Corp produces thousands of hand sewn items in their Springdale, Arkansas facility where they can maintain the quality and style standards they have set. The paper and printed items are all designed in-house and printed locally allowing them to monitor quality closely and allowing the agility to design and create in their time. The brand has expanded into custom cut and sew items, wholesale screen printing, OEM, kits and will continue to develop areas based on where the market takes them. The duo enjoys watching new brands emerge and creative ideas come to life.
