Craftedvan is Born

Craftedvan is created by Diana and Erica, two women from Vancouver BC, who have a common love for crafting up a storm! What initially started from a love of creating handmade gifts for our friends and family, turned into something bigger when we decided to they wanted to spread their joy of crafting with more people!

November 2012

First Craft Fair

Craftedvan participated in their first craft fair at Simon Fraser University's Christmas Residence Craft Fair. We sold all sorts of products, including crocheted owl hats, ornaments, and, yes, magnetic bookmarks, which proved to be a hit!

September 2013

Live on Etsy

We took the jump to create our online presence on Etsy. We sold various different handmade products and eventually made the call to focus on magnetic bookmarks.

March 2014

First time in Stores

Our creations make it to the store shelves for the first time! It was so exciting to be featured at one of our favourite local shops that we've always admired, Front and Company!

December 2014

Make It Vancouver!

One of their goals was to be accepted into one of the largest western Canadian craft shows, Make It Show. Their first show was a hit and we've been participating at every Vancouver show since.

October 2015

20,000 Sales Online

We were super excited to reach 20k sales on Etsy! To celebrate, they created this special 20-coffee-donut and gave 200 of them away!

November 2015

1st Craft Fair Away From Home

With suitcases full of products, and hearts full of excitement, Craftedvan headed to Edmonton for our first craft fair away from home. 

March 2016

OOAK Show in Toronto

Craftedvan participated in Toronto's One of A Kind Show, one of the largest craft shows in Eastern Canada. Returning for 4 more years, we learned about shipping pallets, creating epic booth setups, and learning to live through 11 days of craft show madness together! We also met many new faces and life-long friends.

July 2016

Launched The Read Happy Plan

We created our very own Subscription plan, that mailed a new set of themed bookmarks each month to those who subscribed. It pushed us to be extra creative every month and was so much fun to seal and ship!

August 2016

25,000 Sales Online

We celebrated 25k orders on our Etsy! In celebration, we designed this special limited-edition gorilla bookmark to give away to customers.

March 2017

First Walled Booth

With the help of some talented family members, we were able to upgrade to wood walls and shelves. Along with designing and painting the booth, we got to learn how to ship a pallet too!

May 2017

NYC National Stationery Show

Craftedvan's dreams of showcasing at the National Stationery Show came true and before we knew it, we were on their way to New York! We got to showcase to world-wide stationery and gift shops and were amongst shops such as Rifle Paper Co. and Hallmark

May 2017

Printed Catalogs

Our catalog comes to life! A booklet showcasing our top selling designs and products all in one place. With this we were able to share to potential wholesales and get our products on more shelves!

August 2017

Vromans Bookstore

We got to visit and see our work in one of the biggest bookstores! Vromans Bookstore in California. This was the first time seeing our work in stores outside of Canada, so it was quite a milestone!

November 2017

Circle Craft

If at first you don't succeed, keep trying! That was our story with Circle Craft, Vancouver's largest holiday market, held at the Convention Centre, that we have admired for many years. We were jumping up and down when we got accepted! We got to be in budding artists and although small in size, we drew a big crowd! <3

November 2017

Tattooed Otters

We have had the honour or meeting so many amazing customers and made friendships throughout the years from selling at craft fairs. This one was extra special because she liked our design so much she tattoo'd it on herself! 

March 2018

New Booth

Craftedvan works on new walls to bring to Toronto and keep there! With all of our travelling back and forth, twice a year, we figured it made most sense to create a set that stayed in Toronto. We had so much fun picking new colours, and then blasting music and painting the walls in the garage! 

August 2018

Owl Crate

Ever since their first box in 2015, Owl Crate has collaborated with us in various boxes both for their main subscription plan, as well as their Owl Crate Jr. boxes. We have 9 exclusive designs for them thus far and cherish each one very much!

September 2018

Our Story is Shared

Our story is shared in Make It Happen. Our first time being published in a book! We got to share tips to help other entrepreneurs turn an idea into a business they love. Our biggest tip? Have fun!  "If things are getting too serious, lighten up and figure out a way to have more fun."

October 2018

Celebrates 5 Years

Happy 5 years of business to us! So thankful of all the adventures this business brought us on. Travelling the world, designing and making bookmarks, selling behind the booths, meeting thousands of customers, being part of hundreds of shops, and doing the work that we love.

June 2019

More Shops!

Craftedvan continues to be put on more and more shelves! MAKE on Granville Island, Bard on the Beach, UBC Bookstore, Merrily Paper, and many more shops continue to discover and showcase our work.

April 2020

Googly Friends

With craft fairs cancelled, shops closed, and the world at a halt, we came up with googly friends to help send love around. Smiling gift packages that customers could send to their loved ones, or themselves!

May 2020

COVID keeps us inside

COVID-19 continues to impact the way everyone lives. It forces us to make some changes to our business and to get super creative! We create a new line of greeting cards to put a light feel on the difficult situation. Customers continue to support us online, and we are very grateful :)

September 2020

Charity Campaign

With times being harder than ever, we were inspired to use our platform to do more good. We launched a buy one, give one campaign so that every bookmark sold through Craftedvan would be matched with a donation of the same bookmark to a child at BC Children's Hospital. Each sent with a heartwarming message <3
