Compliment Your Beverage With Nanny Made It’s Designer Drinkware
Like a true artist, it was Jacqueline “Jacquie” Birk’s search for creative expression that pushed her into the world of drinkware design. Little did she know that her pursuits would serve as the building blocks for Nanny Made It, an online store where customers can place orders shipped directly to their home. Not only does the business carry ready-made mugs, tumblers, keychains, and shirts with Jacquie’s designs, but they also allow creatives to submit their artwork for made-to-order items. After a quick approval process, Jacquie brings her customers’ visions to life on their selected type of drinking container/apparel.
While your local department store may have limited options for drinkware designs, Nanny Made It values innovation and puts creativity front and centre. Consisting entirely of uniquely designed handcrafts, the online catalogue will surely intrigue your inner bohemian.
“I have crafted as long as I can remember… just a way to play and maybe make some money and provide something useful.”
Experienced as a business and customer service specialist, Jacquie knew her products had the legs to fill an overlooked gap in the home commodity market. By taking inspiration from fairy tales such as Cinderella, pop culture, and relatable life experiences, Jacquie incorporates a little novelty into typical household items. Her designs aren’t limited to image graphics as they also make use of whimsical phrases that read “relax and enjoy the crazy,” “it’s not a dad bod, it’s a father figure,” and “the beach is calling.”
Offering quality products to customers that are both useful and smile-inducing is the modus operandi of Nanny Made It. While her drinkware line was a hit on social media platforms such as Facebook, she continued her research to expand beyond pick-ups in Brighton, Ontario to offer Canada-wide shipping for her online customers. Through Digital Main Street’s ShopHERE Powered By Google Program, Jacquie launched her online business on the Square eCommerce platform.
“It’s a great way to create an online presence.”
Jacquie’s online store helps her organize and manage her product inventory, upload images for her various designs, offer discounts, customize shipping options, and connect with her customers through a contact form for custom orders. Her store also gives her the freedom to run marketing campaigns on her social media platforms and reach different demographics to try out her products.
By reaching a wide range of buyers, Jacquie can get even more creative with her product designs to match the varying tastes of her growing customer base. At Nanny Made It, there will always be something for everyone and anyone.
