I love gifts. I love personalized gifts even more. I met Jessica of Designs from Jess while attending a pop up shop. It's so rare to come across a local custom apparel company catering to the bridal market. Although I adore Etsy I really like showcasing local Connecticut vendors. So, when I saw Jess's custom items I knew right away that I wanted to know more about her and desperately needed her to be a part of Wifey for Life.
Jessica not only makes custom apparel, she has an entire collection dedicated to weddings. Everything from t-shirts to wine bags and sweatpants. She can design it for you!
Jessica is not only a vendor at our April 26, 2015 workshop, she is also providing custom Wifey reusable canvas bags for each of our brides!!! Yes, you get a bag, you get a bag, you get a bag!! You do not want to miss this! Register today!

Introduce yourself. Who you are, interesting facts about you and your business. How long you have been in the business.
Hi I’m Jess with Designs from Jess, graphic design and custom apparel. My love for the industry started with my first job at 16 when I worked for a local print shop in Cheshire. I had hands on experience setting up files and running them on the printing press. I didn’t know it then but that was the very beginning of my journey to where I am now. I officially opened Designs from Jess in 2012 with the start of my Etsy store and cranky pants! Since then I have been adding more and more products to my catalog. The super fun glitter wedding tanks are just one example! I’m also promoting my freelance graphic design services as well as custom wedding invitations, save the dates and wedding signage.
Who or what do you look to for inspiration?
I find inspiration everywhere, whether it’s chatting with a friend, driving around town, or even perusing the internet.
You want your products to inspire?
I want my products to inspire fun! Happiness is the key to life and if a silly pair of sweatpants or a fun customized Mrs. Tank can brighten your day or make your day special then I’ve succeeded.
Why your business? Why should brides work with you?
I am super fun and easy going! I want to make the process, whether a set of custom tanks or wedding invitations, easy and stress free. I’m also really great with deadlines and turn around time. I take so much pride in exceeding peoples expectations.
To you, what is the most important detail a couple should incorporate into their wedding day?
Themselves! It should absolutely be a reflection of the couple. Color, theme, texture all of it! Love and their personality should ooze out of every aspect.
