Episode 99 – SHOP TALK with Meg Sutton of Belle & Union


Meg Sutton of Belle & Union is chatting with us today about how she started her business and created her own supply chains to have her products made in the USA. We also chat about how Meg started in wholesale and what made her decide to open a Brick and Mortar shop. This episode is full of wisdom about knowing your products value, knowing your numbers and staying true to your brand.

 

About Meg:

Meg Sutton is the boss lady and doodler behind Belle & Union, a company that sells letterpress printed cards, art prints, southern-inspired wrappings, and hand-crafted artisan goods brimming with vintage wit and wisdom that tote a bit of a foodie twist – all 100% made in the USA. Meg started the business in 2012 after falling in love with letterpress while working in a boutique shop.

 

Belle & Union launched their first brick and mortar store in San Antonio, Texas, in July 2018. The shop houses the working studio as well as offers creative workshops across a variety of subject matters. Meg values encouraging people to slow down and enjoy the sweet moments in life, gathered ’round a table filled with smiles and laughter.

 

When she’s not doodling or coming up with Belle & Union’s next great product, you can find her sipping chai tea, chasing her pup with her husband, and curling up with a good book.

 

Belle & Union’s products have been featured in Country Living, Rachael Ray, Southern Weddings, Southern Living, Southern Lady, and Oh So Beautiful Paper. Meg has been interviewed on KENS 5 in San Antonio, Texas Lifestyle Magazine, Proof to Product podcast, and more.

About Christine:

Christine was born and raised in upstate NY and moved to Maryland to finish college and ended up staying, getting married and having children. Although she attended one year of art school, her background is IT management and worked with legislators in Annapolis at the General Assembly. Her husband was the attorney for the then owner of Alpha Graphics and she wanted to retire but didn’t want to let go of her long time employees of over 25 years so with his suggestion to her was to put in an offer to buy the business 12 years ago and she accepted. Christine learned the “Alpha way” from the employees and now teaches that way to her current employees. She employs mostly artists from the renown and local Maryland Institute College of Art as it takes a special person with artistic and color skills to create and fabricate her custom work.  She has 7 employees, including herself and will be expanding in the next month or so to include some part time employees for production. Her company is located in the historic Woodberry area of Baltimore, Maryland. Christine is also the founder of Bmore Cake & Whiskey, a women only networking event she and her partner, Stephanie Bradshaw put on every quarter.
