When Polished Prints started in 2018 it was more or less a hobby. I was a new mom with a personal love for graphic tees, and yet couldn’t seem to find many for our daughter that really aligned with my own mindset. So I did what any graphic designer mom would do – I created my own. It all started in our guest bedroom, hand-printing onesies one-by-one and sharing them on social media. We focused on positive messages that reflect our own values, bringing to life the meaningful apparel we felt was missing in the world of children’s clothing. It didn’t take long for us to see how messages like “Be The Good” and “Love Thy Neighbor” resonated with so many others in the same way they did with us, so we decided to open up an Etsy shop so others could spread the love, too. Before we knew it we launched our own website and this tiny hobby evolved into its own little business.
Today Polished Prints looks a little different. While we still create inspiring graphics for babes, we also have a line of t-shirts for adults, toddlers and youth. All of our garments are printed by hand using eco-friendly water-based inks, thoughtfully packaged in our studio and shipped with love from us to you. We believe in using our space in this world for good, which is why you’ll often see us donating to charity, speaking out on social issues, and making small changes to our production process to work toward a more sustainable product. We believe that we’re all a work in progress, but we’re learning and continuing to strive to be better day-by-day. If there’s anything we hope to do with this company, it’s to inspire you to do the same.
