The maker story that we have to tell you today will be short and sweet - we are excited to introduce you to Emily McCarty from Dapper Jack Designs. Emily is a Michigan girl, born and raised in Midland, Michigan. When she started making it was 2015 and she was creating paper baby mobiles for family and friends. After seeing some success with that, she also added bibs and blankets to her repertoire and decided to make a go at starting her small business!
Her business is named after her first born son, Jack. On his first Easter, she was snapping photos of him all dressed up and the only word she could think of to describe him was dapper and he became known as Dapper Jack from there on. Emily says, “I knew I wanted to include his name because he was the inspiration for starting the whole adventure!”
When she’s not making for Dapper Jack, Emily is happily chasing her two boys around (her full time job, she says). Some of her most popular items aside from the baby mobiles are paci-clips. You can shop Dapper Jack Designs by stopping into our store or visiting them at the link below!
