Tell us about your business/craft.
We make custom laser engraved wood tags for weddings, gifts and all of life’s special moments. We also make custom tags for businesses who want to add a special touch to their brand and packaging. Along with our custom work, we have created a line of wood home décor products. Our coasters, succulent holders, votive holders and vases come in three shades of wood - maple, cherry and walnut. Customers can choose the shade that suits their particular taste or they can mix and match between all three for variation and contrast.
How did you get started?
Sonya had her first shop on Etsy making rustic tea light holders and coasters out of fallen branches. She started stamping images onto each piece although was never fully satisfied with the results. One night, a close friend of both Sonya and Isac opened their eyes to the technology of laser engraving. Isac being a total tech geek loved the idea of playing with lasers and that is how the concept of GrainDeep started!
What is one thing people may be surprised to find out about you?
We are partners in life and in business and have been together for 13 years. Professionally, we began in the industries of interior design and architecture. We love being able to apply the skills that we developed in these industries in our own business.
What is your personal favourite piece out of your own collection and why?
Our coasters because we use them every day! We have a stack of them that we rotate at home. They are fun to mix and match - both designs and wood variations.
Who/what inspires you?
Definitely we inspire one another. The best part about being in business with your partner and friend is bouncing ideas off one another and being each other’s cheerleader. We also have very supportive family and friends who are always interested in what we are doing and developing next.
What can guests at ReBash expect to see from you at the event?
We will be selling our wood home décor products as well as have samples out showcasing our variety of wedding, gifts tags and save the date designs.
We love GrainDeep's products and they remind us of carving initials into a tree! Much more sophisticated and cool though ;). We hope you can join us at ReBash (a little something will be in the Goodie Bags from GrainDeep for the first 50 guests who enter the event!).
