Hi, we are Jes and Cynthia, and together we are Long Story Short I Design & Print. At Long Story Short we believe we are different, because we are just like you.
While Jes's husband was at university most nights, she started what began as a small candle business. While practicing her craft, Jes met many amazing crafters and artisans. She noticed a theme, there were SO many great ideas in the community but no avenues to help these creatives bring them to life.
This got us thinking, why not provide design and print wholesale services to our like-minded counterparts? A strong industry means that we can all succeed. But to stand out in such a saturated market, our branding needs to be unique, and speak to our individual target markets. Our aim is to provide affordable design and print to help you get your brand out there. We LOVE having something to offer those who helped so much on our Candle journey and we LOVE watching your businesses grow.
We understand the struggles of entrepreneurship and running a business so our team puts their hearts and souls into helping you achieve your business goals. Our mission is to create a design and print experience small businesses can enjoy. We offer affordable flat rate design, and low minimum order quantities through our online store. This means any business, no matter what size, has access to quality, professional branding.
We are building a database of ready-made designs for you to use as you wish, as well as our custom label printing. We hope you love what you find here.
If you still have questions, we welcome you to message us via social media to discuss your branding journey and how we can get started in making your brand look absolutely on point.
