Mission statement

Christopher A. Leach started this company in 2008 as a side project because of his love of art. Today we have had many customers that came to us for all their drawing, design needs such as Business Papers (Card, Stationary, etc.), Brochures, Posters/Banners/Signs, Custom Invitations, Logo & Tattoo designs just to name a few. Creating a new brand or making an existing one look better? We do all of that. We do not print here, we do all the graphics needed for you to bring them to a printer of your choice.

 

We are more than just your average Graphic Art Design Studio. What is a design studio? Well a design studio is a workplace for designers and artisans engaged in conceiving, designing and developing new products or objects. That is what we are, but we are so much more, specializing in creating something special and unique that embodies your vision and personality wrapped up in our design. We love to create, we love to show color and life in our work. We have as of January-1st-2019 become much more selective about jobs we take for graphic design. This doesn’t mean that we will not work with you, it just means due to time and current work load we reserve the right to deny any Jobe offer given.

 

Just as everything in life, we are growing and evolving into something more then we where yesterday. 2015 was our year of Change and 2019 will be our year of growth. 2020 is our year of expansion and solidifying our brand and name.

 

Today’s business world demands that we provide you with better products and services at competitive prices. And acting responsibly and ethically is just as crucial. Integrity and compliance with the regulations and standards that govern our global business sphere are therefore essential. At SKITCH we are aware of our responsibility and act accordingly. For us, sustainability is not just a trend, it has been a firmly established part of our business ethics code right from the start.

 

SKITCH is committed to global environmental protection through our ecologically responsible management and operations. We strive to continuously improve our environmental footprint by conserving resources, reducing waste, and using water, energy and raw materials as efficiently as possible.

 

We do NOT work with subcontractors, because we want to assure optimal quality control. Christopher A. Leach carefully and diligently screens the manufacturers’ occupational safety policies and practices on a regular basis.

 

Our clothing and accessories comply with the requirements of the OEKO-TEX® Standard 100. In addition, we operate in accordance with the principles and codes of the Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP®) organization. The principles, requirements and regulations are considered extremely important and are strictly implemented by our company and our business partners.

 

In closing we are a company that loves what we do, we create, we work hard & we play hard, we care about the quality of service to the extent of ourselves. We put a great deal of who we are in everything we do. Thanks for stopping by and reading about our “Badass Little shop” oh yeah….our nunchaku skills, they are on par with Napoleon Dynamite 🙂

Our Shops Vape Juice Flavor list. Our Shops CBD/HEMP Product list. This is not a full service vape shop and what we mean by that is, This is a tiny shop we do not offer Testers and all juice is sealed from factory to ensure that you are receiving the best quality direct from the Juice companies. However we do test every single flavor before we put it on the shelves. A Group of 10-15 people test each flavor and give us feed back if its worth putting in the shop. Most juices in the shop were recommended by customers just like you! so if you have a Brand you really like we would love to hear about it. Who knows maybe we can get it in here 🙂 You also cannot mix your Nicotine in your Juice in the shop, for a few good reasons, one being not everyone can handle mixing their juice without making a mess and we spent many years getting this shop looking like it is….the last thing we need is a “OOOOPS gotta paper towel bro” (yes it happened all the time) thanks for your understanding 🙂
