Hi! We’re Erin and Jordan – a couple in Calgary, Alberta with a passion for home décor, creating warm and welcoming spaces, and helping people communicate more effectively in today’s world.
The idea of starting our own business has always felt like a distant future. We’ve both discussed ideas with each other, with friends, with family, but nothing has ever come to fruition. It’s simple - life got it in the way. But then we came across felt letterboards, and the idea stuck.
You see, we’re the type of people who are forever leaving each other sticky notes: notes of affection, notes of humor, or sometimes just ‘don’t forget to take the garbage out’ notes. We’d recently stumbled upon these letterboards while looking for ideas to redecorate our place, the only issue was that they were sold out of the US. With the currency conversion rate plus duties and taxes, the price of the boards were simply too much. And that’s what clicked, instead of waiting for someone else to bring these boards to Canada, we began designing our own, finding a way to make them, and to sell them ourselves.
Here we are, a ‘few’ samples and test runs later, Words & Co. is a proudly marketing premium felt letterboards for the Canadian marketplace. Not to forget our friends in the US, our boards are more economical thanks to the strong dollar - it’s like shopping a permanent sale!
Use it in your home, in your business, leave a riddle for the kids, or showcase your drink menu with guests – the possibilities are endless. We hope you enjoy these products as much as we do and we look forward to seeing your creations.
