Welcome! We are so glad you popped in to learn a little more about Winks Design Studio.
Welcome to Winks Design Studio! We are a family-owned boutique specializing in handmade and hand-drawn designs. Our business was founded by Brea, a talented graphic designer, and her mother Melissa, who has a passion for creative expression and entrepreneurship.
Our journey began in 2020, during a time of great difficulty for our family. Melissa was diagnosed with Lupus and sustained serious injuries that required a lot of care. Despite these challenges, Brea was determined to pursue her dream of starting her own business. She was assigned a senior project to create a business plan and used this opportunity to bring her vision to life.
With hard work and determination, Brea completed her project and presented a plan for Winks Design Studio. In October of 2021, we officially opened our doors, and in November, Brea and Melissa signed partnership paperwork to make it official. Today, we are proud to say that we are a thriving small business that has grown out of a challenging time in our lives.
At Winks Design Studio, we create all our designs from scratch, either in a sketchbook or on an iPad. We never use pre-made designs or SVGs; each one is unique and made with care. We take pride in producing our shirts in an eco-friendly, sweatshop-free environment in the USA, and we package and ship each order from our workshop in NC.
For us, Winks Design Studio is more than just a business. It is a dream come true, and we are grateful every day to be able to spend our time together creating and bringing joy to our customers. Our journey has taught us so much about ourselves, each other, and what's truly important in life. That's why we strive for excellence in everything we do, from our products to our customer service.
When you shop at Winks Design Studio, you are supporting a family. We greatly appreciate your support and look forward to bringing a little bit of our passion and creativity into your life. Thank you for visiting our about us page, and we hope to see you again soon!
All Our Love,
Brea & Melissa
