Pickle's Pawtraits Shares Why Including Business Cards on Parcel is Important

Posted by StickerDot on October 27, 2022

Who would have thought that your love for pets could lead you to pursue entrepreneurship?

Why not? The pet care business is a big industry, and it started to boom big time when the coronavirus hit globally.

“The global market size of the pet care industry is predicted to reach USD 236.16 billion by 2030. This is due to repeated lockdowns and work-from-home setting that leads people to humanise pets. They were looking after their welfare, that is why there are high demands of pet products and services to cater for the needs of every pet.” Grand View Research

And this is where the business of Pickle’s Pawtraits came into the picture. They provide pet products and services like making pets and human portraits that are a perfect memory present.


They also expand their business into selling mugs, stickers, printed tees and totes with your pet as a design.

They shared an inspiring story about how they started their business and why they decided to pursue this one.

You will be touched and awestruck when you meet their cutest CEO, the inspiration behind their business.

Of course, a product in a parcel must contain other items to make the unboxing more exciting. With that, they never miss to include Thank You business cards to thank their clients and promote their products and services.

Are you excited to know more about Pickle’s Pawtraits? Let’s get to know them better and why business cards are a must on their parcel.

Tell us about Pickle’s Pawtraits. What are the products or services you offer?


We are Pickle's Pawtraits! We are a small NZ pet portrait business run purely by myself (Abbey), my partner Harley and our little sausage dog CEO Pickle! We make pet portraits of all styles, human and pet portraits and even human alone for perfect memory presents! 

We have over time expanded our business from just digital products to now include mugs, stickers, totes, tees, hoodies, fridge magnetism prints and more! We're ever expanding our range without the ultimate aim for pet owners to be able to have their pet's face on EVERYTHING! We've even recently launched our own range of dog bandanas, and we sell treats for dogs too :)

What makes Pickle’s Pawtraits different from the others?


We take extra care to provide the very best service from start to finish with the best customer experience we can. That means we think about every single step of our process from the perspective of customers and honestly being the target customer ourselves (millennial pet parents haha). 

We find it easy to immerse ourselves and provide exactly what customers need. With a 50% returning customer rate and having completed well over 4000 pawtrait over 2 years, we think it's working! We feel what sets us apart most is our dedication to quality!

How did you find StickerDot?

We found StickerDot through word of mouth - other people had let us know how fantastic the service is and how affordable but high-quality the products are. We've experienced fabulous service and great quality, so we weren’t disappointed! We will never ever use any of the larger overseas producers again as we find StickerDot to be better in every way - quality, price, turnaround time and service. 

The products are just the perfect addition to our parcels, and we think they wouldn't have the same customer impact without them. The ability to order square cards or cards of any shape and size is also perfect!

How did you use the products you've purchased in your business?

We use StickerDot to create business cards and thank you cards which we place into each parcel we send out and hand out at events! The quality is absolutely perfect and adds such a special and beautiful touch to our parcels. 

We've ordered sets of business cards for all three of our small businesses, thank you cards for two of them, and special edition cards such as event discounts, partnerships with other businesses and so much more! The flexibility of the card's shape and size has been awesome too! We also use swing tags for our wearable range and they're gorgeous!

How did the business cards and swing tags help promote your products?

The cards we have bought have helped us promote our business at events where we hand out cards for people to take home - the finish of the cards is beautiful and bold so definitely makes for a memorable card! StickerDot is our absolute go-to every time we need a new business card or thank you note - StickerDot is just simply unbeatable in quality and price and we always receive our cards super duper quickly. 

We also find that even if we make a mistake on our file StickerDot always helps us before printing which as a small business avoids any wasted cost if they were to print as is! Amazing service :)


Would you recommend StickerDot to anyone?

Absolutely and we do! We always say StickerDot is the very best there is for business cards and thank you cards. We've said it so many times, but you really can't beat them! The service is the cherry on top, and we appreciate the time and effort that goes into making our cards perfect! 

The fact that you can cover so many of your bases in one place is just superb! We will also come back to StickerDot for any project we need cards for, and we'd highly recommend all of our fellow NZ small businesses consider the same.
