Exciting news! Wrappily is a finalist in the 2015 Martha Stewart American Made Awards. Creative entrepreneurs and small business owners were encouraged to enter in categories including crafts, design, food, and style. From all the published nominees, under 1,000 finalists were selected to compete. Bringing our product and concept to a national stage like this is a huge step for Wrappily, and being named one of just 37 finalists in the Paper Crafts division already feels like a bit of a win.
Alas, now the work begins. While judges will be choosing a pool of winners, the public-at-large will be choosing ONE WINNER. This crowd favorite will receive a $10,000 business grant and some amazing exposure across Martha Stewart's broad media channels: website, magazine, events and more. This. Is. Huge. Will you help us make it happen?
What is American Made?
“American Made is a program that spotlights the maker, supports the local, and celebrates the handmade. We honor and showcase people who have turned their passion for quality craftsmanship and well-designed goods into a way of life. Each year, Martha Stewart Living honors a group of makers, craftspeople, small-business owners, and innovators from across the country. These makers are recognized for their dedication to creative entrepreneurship and to building successful businesses and communities. These businesses earn the title of American Made Honoree,” describes marthastewart.com. Find answers to more FAQ here.
