nice goods makers of original & custom designed accessories, apparel & goods.

nice goods was started in 2009 on a cold February day as a way to cure Midwest winter boredom and find a good use for ideas kicking around in my brain. As a long-time gig poster and t-shirt designer/illustrator I wanted to apply that aesthetic and approach to creative problem solving on a smaller scale.

The Etsy shop was made to sell buttons, magnets, pet tags and other small accessories that my friends, family, and myself like that way if nothing sold, I could at least have some gifts to give away!

Turned out, others liked what I liked too and the shop turned into a real labor of love. I design, typeset, and illustrate all nice goods. Myself and my partner assemble and ship products to people all over the world.

My favorite thing that came out of selling nice goods is the feedback and stories from customers about how they connect to my tiny designs. Those little connections with these little designs is largely why we make nice goods. We encourage shoppers to upload their stories with our nice goods on our Facebook page too!

A big part of the nice approach is to make all nice goods accessible and affordable because we think everyone should be entitled to a little nice in their life whether it's a set of buttons or magnets, something as big as a t-shirt or as tiny as a pet tag.

We've since been accepting wholesale and bulk orders for larger shops to carry nice goods and take on custom orders for weddings and parties too as a way to spread a little more nice in the world.
