“Alphacritters” is a whimsical alphabet based on original hand-drawn artwork by Karen Hawley. The “critters” originated from an idea that she had as a kid. Back then, she did “name pictures” for friends and family alike and was surprised to discover that her cousin, after many years, still had hers hanging in her room! Through her Mom’s encouragement especially,,“Alphacritters” and the business partnership were born!
This home-based business started in 1997, originally with just children’s Name Pictures, that enjoy continued popularity (thank you, thank you!), but over the years it was expanded to include names on T-Shirts, Diaper Shirts and Baby Bibs. Later we added Hand-Painted Frames or Solid Coloured Wood Frames. The book “Critters For Company” was published in 2006.
We are still a home-based business and although we aim to be friendly and informal, our professionalism is in the “quality of our work”, our efforts at “timeliness” with your delivery and our 100% “guarantee to bring a smile”.
