Small Business Essentials
Oddly satisfying 🖨️ Not sure why we waited this long to get a thermal printer for shipping labels! It has made printing our packing slips & shipping labels from our launch day orders so much faster than using our regular printer. What makes it even better is that it doesn’t use ink! #smallbusinessessentials #smallbiz #familybusiness #communityovercompetition #manifest #oddlysatisfying #oddlysatisfyingvideo #asmr #smallbusinessgoals #smallbusinessontario

sometimes, it’s overwhelming
“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” ~ Walt Disney Yes, it might feel overwhelming & exhausting at times, but being able to work together to create a business of our own has been worth it. I can’t wait to see where our small business journey takes us next! #familybusiness #hardwork #smallbusiness #smallbusinessowner #manifestation #manifest #manifesting #dreambig #dreambigworkhard #createyourreality
DTF Printing
We use a DTF printer to make our prints. Our film is cold peel, so we need to wait until it is cool before we peel it off. #dtf #dtfprinting #dtfprinter #smallbusiness #smallbusinessowner #familybusiness #manifestation #manifesting #createyourreality

Water Activated Tape
Using our custom water activated tape & dispenser for the first time 🎉 This added detail has been a bucket list item for our shop & I’m glad I took footage of using it for the first time. Not seen here are all the questions and doubts of how to use it 😂 At one point I asked Dave for help, then said, “never mind I got it” only to say seconds later, “nope, don’t got it 🥴” My hope is that overtime I will build enough muscle memory to use it comfortably so I don’t get glue all over my hands!

Folding Trick
Folding our newest crewneck design is oddly satisfying 🤭 We had to find a creative way to fold them so both the front design and the embroidered sleeve detail are visible & highlighted. Our MOODY (established at birth) with …and that’s ok on the sleeve will be available August 1 at 12 PM EST on www.koaandkind.com. I have a feeling this one might sell out fast! #smallbusiness #familybusiness #embroidery #asmr #packagingvideo #asmrsounds #koaandkindco #koaandkindlaunch #entrepreneur #smallbusin

Goodbye 3rd Grade Hello Summer Shirt
Pressing a class set of shirts 🖤🖤🖤 Each year I try to think of a meaningful gift to give my students to celebrate the school year. Last year it was a chapter book we didn’t get to finish reading together so they each got a copy to continue reading over the summer with a personalized note inside 📖 This year my students have shown a lot interest in designing shirts and asked me many times over the school year if I could make them a shirt 🥹 So as a special gift, I designed this “Goodbye 3rd Gr
