Power Messages/Robert Jones
It all started four years ago with creator Robert Jones exploring personalized and unique gifts for family and friends to inspire, empower and uplift spirits during times of adversity. We also wanted to highlight the value of significant relationships, celebrate accomplishments and honor those who have had a tremendous, positive impact in the lives of so many people. The gifts consisted of a personalized message and picture engraved in stone.
The first product Robert developed was titled “A Mother’s Love” for his wife Cleo and his mother Joanne to chronicle their journey and recognize their unconditional and unwavering love for their children. The second product was titled “A Father and His Son” which was written to celebrate fatherhood and to describe the strong bond with his son Austin as he entered adulthood and his early years of college. Many other products, including “A Strong Woman” was produced to honor women who have succeeded despite the obstacles and to motivate and encourage women who were graciously battling against breast cancer and other forms of illness, including his mother in law, Blanche Collins.
The Power Messages brand has grown to a collection of 60+ products with new messages and products in the development phase to expand on the mission of this new brand. Our offerings include personalized and stock products to use as unique and special gifts.
“We are still very much in the start-up phase. Joining GCA to learn the industry from the experts, develop relationships and build networks/collaboration and gain mentorship,” said Robert.
Loudhouse Creative/Francesca Fuges
Loudhouse Creative is a design & print shop specializing in hand-crafted, letterpress paper goods.
I founded Loudhouse Creative as a boutique design firm in 2014, taking on clients that ranged from small nonprofits to larger and more established companies. In 2015 I fell in love with the letterpress process and soon transitioned into new territory: making stationery and greeting cards on an antique press. We strive to infuse our greeting cards with the same mischief and humor that inspires, delights, and sustains us.
A Jersey girl born and raised, I now run Loudhouse out of a crazy little studio in Southern California with my husband and a bunch of cats and dogs. Believe us, the chaos is real. It’s fun, it’s wild, it’s messy. And out of that crazy life comes the creative inspiration for Loudhouse.
As a new member, I’m excited for the opportunity to immerse myself in the stationery community, meet inspiring people and expand my business by taking advantage of all the resources and information the GCA has to offer.
