About CAPow

Sales 8,781
On Etsy since 2008

How being crafty changed my life

The CAPow! Shop started off selling handmade wallets. Finding the sewing more time consuming and less fun, I decided to list some prints in the shop based off of art school projects from my Graphic Design days. These prints were well received and I continued to list art and photography in the shop, but things really started to take off after one fateful trip to Walmart. I had decided to pick up some candy hearts to photograph for the shop and while standing in line to checkout an atlas caught my eye. This gave me the idea for the Hometown Hearts series and the rest is history!

My hand illustrated typography maps are all drawn in pencil, then inked. I scan the original into the computer and make enhancements or edits until they look just right. When you place an order, I send it to the professional printer I work with and they quickly print package and ship your print directly to your door. I used to print and pack each order myself, but it became all consuming and left no time to make new art. Working with this printer frees up my time and thoughts to be able to create new prints and photographs for your home!

This Etsy shop has allowed me to go from struggling, indebted student working several part time jobs to a more financially stable homeowner. I would like to thank every single person who has ever purchased something from the CAPow! shop. Each one of you has helped change my life and your continued support makes this journey amazing!

Can you illustrate a custom map for me?
