Hello and thank you for stopping by to read our About Us page! We are a small business that is based in Honolulu, Hawaii. We started out by having a natural love for dogs, good health, and a desire to make others smile! With this, we decided to utilize our skills in our very own home-based designing and combine it with products that we can print on. This enables us to help represent these fun, creative, and supportive ways of bringing awareness, joy, and creativity into one's life as well as for others to see!
We'd like to take this time to share the story behind our "Collectible Impressions Logo Collection". The Collectible Impressions logo was designed based off of an actual butterfly! We raised this butterfly from a baby caterpillar, through all of its life's changes while living on the branches of our very own crown flower plant! To share further, we've had this crown flower plant since it was a single cut off stem of about 12" tall. It was replanted into a half gallon plastic pot from a local nursery here in Hawaii and was given no guarantee how well its roots would develop. Well, by surprise, that same crown flower plant is now 5 years old and over 10 feet tall by 8 feet wide! It is this crown flower plant that we had the privilege of watching a baby caterpillar grow through all of its stages on its branches as it fed off of the crown flower leaves one by one until it was content! As the sunny days passed, it eventually reached maturity and on one late evening, it finally spun into its amazing cocoon. After patiently awaiting, it completed the remarkable transformation, metamorphosis, and emerged! As it began to open up from out of its cocoon, it opened its wings oh so gently and slowly into the beautiful and delicate butterfly it became. Delicately, it spread its wings far apart and started to raise them up and back down repeatedly until it gained coordination and steadiness. It took only a few minutes for the butterfly to gain its full confidence and began to gently flutter in place. The butterfly climbed onto my finger and as I held it up, mother nature allowed us the pleasure of setting it free into the open skies as it fluttered off into our garden under the warm sunshine! Having to have experienced such a beautiful experience and as a family, we decided to adopt the colorful impression of its wing shape in combination of the lovely moments we gathered and collected from the experience. All together, giving us the thought of our business name, "Collectible Impressions".
In browsing our designs, you will find that in addition to the joyful and useful products, we try to think outside of the box in ways to help bring awareness to matters that we feel are important and can be helpful for others. If you are interested in browsing one of these products we offer particularly for awareness, please visit our "Featured Products" section.
In addition, we decided to add in a few other products that we ourselves, thought would be a nice addition for those that may not be looking for a custom designed apparel, but rather some fun accessories or fashion jewelry for either yourself or as a gift idea!
We are a very small company looking to help support local businesses and jobs for as long as we can to help our economy, which is why we get most of our materials from U.S. based companies and/or distributors if not direct manufactures themselves. Due to cost and availability, some of our products such as fashion jewelry, does come from suppliers spread worldwide. While we look forward to our own line of fashion jewelry in the future, we appreciate your support until then!
