Etsy Artist Feature
Today I’d like to introduce Katherine Mendieta, a 26 year old Art graduate from the University of Iowa. She currently lives in Minneapolis with her husband Mitch and just opened up her Etsy shop this February!
“I love designing cards almost as much as I love sending them to friends and family. As much as I love social media, I miss the old school days when snail mail was a bigger deal. So after some friends encouraged me, I opened up shop!”
Though new to the Etsy world, Katherine has jump-started her marketing, posting links and discount codes on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Before she moved to Minnesota, she worked at a photography studio and learned “that people are far more likely to trust the word of someone they know, or a trusted blogger they connect with, than an advertisement.” Because of that, she’s relying on word of mouth and some giveaways to get her name out there.

When I asked Katherine what he favorite thing to make was, I was not at all surprised with her answer after taking a look at her shop! “Fun, quirky cards that make people smile.” She also loves doing custom work, so readers, you can keep that in mind too!
