TSBC's Paper Camp was a truly worthwhile investment for my small business. The weekend-long course was expertly executed and packed with information for the maker and/or designer looking to take the next step and expand his/her business into wholesale and beyond. When I say packed with information, I mean it- every angle was covered, from a maker's perspective, to a buyer's perspective, to a store owner's perspective. I truly felt that the information conveyed was real talk- no sugarcoating allowed! In addition to providing a wealth of knowledge, Katie and her talented support staff of speakers did everything they could to make it an energetic and engaging weekend filled with fun paper products (it was Paper Camp, after all) and an emphasis on networking with our camper peers.
I feel that no amount of Googling or outside research could equate to what I took away from Paper Camp. If you're serious about taking the next step with your creative small business, definitely consider attending TSBC.
