About TeePee Creations

Hi!

My name is Toni Pilling and I am the founder of TeePee Creations.

My initial inspiration came when I was on a work placement at Rethinkthings Ltd in Liverpool whilst at university in 2016. I was helping out with designing their website and catalogue. Whilst there I was encouraged to go and sell my own illustrations… this was when TeePee Creations was founded.

I initially created the company to enhance the gift and card giving experience, now mainly focusing on greetings cards. Every card has matching confetti available as an upgrade which I believe is what makes my designs unique. This added extra touch gives the card a more personal feel, helping show that the giver of the greetings card has really thought about the recipient. I want that “Wow, that’s different! That’s a cute idea!” reaction with every card opened.

Wondering where the name ‘TeePee Creations’ came from? Back at school my nickname was TeePee, taken from the initials in my name – Toni Pilling!

If you want to know some more in depth information about me check out my March Meet The Maker posts on my blog where I spent a whole month writing about myself and TeePee Creations.
