Humbleprint did a wonderful job of printing all of my business stationery, and supplied me with really lovely paper and card stock too. If you'd like to support a small business instead of one of the big printing companies try Bob at Humbleprint.

Instagram Mentoring

I found Kia on Instagram as an artist, but noticed she also provided Instagram marketing advice. Thinking that it would be a good fit to get advice from another creative business, I ordered one of her Bespoke eBooks. Kia, describes herself as an Accidental InstaMarketeer, grew her account from 12 to 10,000 followers in one year and now has over 26,000 followers. Kia's standard eBook is on sale on her Etsy page, http://etsy.me/2Ec4rlf, or if you'd like to go for the bespoke version, send her a message at www.instagram.com/sticksandink
