About TheSamAntics

Sales 915
On Etsy since 2014

How did TheSamAntics come about?

TheSamAntics was created in 2014 as a reflection of myself. I'm a nerdy, comic book-loving crocheter who loves dogs and values equality.

I created TheSamAntics so that other people could express themselves with items you likely wouldn't see in a normal store. I wanted to create unique products that I would either use myself, or gift to somebody close to me. Everything in my shop was inspired by something in my life.

As much as I love dogs, I'm actually allergic to them. I couldn't really be around my first dog, Maxine, when I was growing up, but she still managed to be my best friend. After five years of traveling back and forth between New York and New Hampshire to see my partner and his dog, Buddy (also known as Mr. Puppyface), I finally left my full-time job and moved in with them in 2014.

Maxine passed away in 2012 and I still regret not having been able to spend more time with her. I didn't want that for Buddy and his father, so I created TheSamAntics so that if his dad had to stay in a different state for work, we could go with him and I could take my work with me.

We finally bought a house at the end of 2016, which meant that I needed to get a job. In June of 2018, we decided to get a friend for our aging pup. By "we decided," I really mean that I found the spitting image of Maxine on Craigslist, who also happened to be an unknown mixed breed (like Maxine), and I immediately adopted her. By the end of 2018, I decided to quit my job so that I could be around more for our aging pup and his new friend, Phoebe.

I feel like Phoebe is my second chance with Maxine, and Buddy deserves the same. I may go through a box of tissues in a matter of days, but it's worth it so that our furry friends can have a better life.

Being the inspiration for TheSamAntics, Buddy is actually the logo for the company. I had taken a picture of him in a cape not long before I decided to create TheSamAntics. When I took that first step in 2014, there was no question as to what my logo would look like.

    Just a nerdy crocheter looking for a challenge. I love making things and learning how to make new things. I've come to terms with that fact that if I can't find something, it's not because it can't be made--it's because I haven't made it yet.

  • Buddy/Mr. Puppyface

    Assistant

    I consider myself to play a big role in TheSamAntics. After all, I AM the logo! I like to fall asleep on my mother's back or just stare at her while she's working. This makes her uncomfortable, which helps to get the job done more quickly.

  • Phoebe

    Assistant

    I totally help mom out by jumping on her lap while she's working. It gets the job done more quickly.

Frequently asked questions
Can I get a printed image on a vinyl decal?

Unfortunately, no. I do not have a machine which will print on vinyl, so any time you see a multi-color decal that I have made, it's really just multiple pieces of vinyl cut out and pieced together to form an image. This means that there can be no shading effects for decals.

How can I take care of my apparel so that the image stays on it longer?

APPAREL WITH A DRAWN IMAGE
Apparel with a drawn image (LGBT Pride Hearts) can be washed and dried normally with the rest of your clothes.

APPAREL WITH A VINYL IMAGE
Apparel with a vinyl image should be washed and dried inside-out every time. Otherwise, the image will start to crack or peel. If this happens, you can always place a sheet of parchment paper over the image and iron it on the highest setting to seal the image back down. If possible, the "delicate" cycle should be used for these garments, but it is not mandatory.

APPAREL WITH A PRINTED IMAGE
Apparel with a printed image (LGBT Pride Hearts) should always be washed and dried inside-out and on the delicate cycle. Otherwise, the image will start to wrinkle and peel.
