Just A Card Week – Day 1 (YOU – Share Your Story)

Hi, if you haven’t read my about me before my name is Toni Pilling, I am 24 years old and work as a Graphic Designer part time whilst running my business TeePee Creations. It all began 2 years ago…

I was working at REthinkthings Ltd on a Graphic Design work placement. They sell a wide range of unique cards and gifts in Liverpool. At the time I was helping build the website and catalogue. After being inspired on the placement and being encouraged by the owner, Ilsa to create and sell my own designs, I started a few illustrations and added them to Red Bubble, this is how TeePee Creations started.

During this time I was starting my final year of university so struggled to keep up with it and decided to put it to one side and concentrate on my studies.

After Graduation in 2017 I decided it was time to properly begin my business. I bought card making supplies from eBay and started to list my designs on Depop and Etsy. A few weeks later I made my first sale, I was absolutely buzzing! This spurred me on to create more and more designs. There have been a lot of learning curves along the way but I am now on a total of 364 orders! I never thought so many people would order off me, it’s starting to make me see that TeePee Creations could one day be my sole income.

I am really passionate about creating fun, quirky and unique designs which enhance the card giving experience. My designs reflect my personality and I am hoping that this year will bring even bigger and better things for TeePee Creations!
