FROM project to market- the Print En Shop's story of draft to craft.

Print En Shop, a newly-opened gift shop offers Dabawenyos a variety of hand-painted creations and personalized products for something personal, individual, unique, different and "I-own-this-thing sense."

Located at the lower ground level of SM Lanang Premier, the gift shop has been doing well since it opened last May 16.

"Actually, Prints En Paints started as a college project as part of our requirements in our entrepreneurship class. Then I told my group mates that I have plans to pursue the business and here it is," Zharline Anne Rashid, owner of the shop said.

Rashid said that during her college days she leads her entrepreneurship group and drafted most of the concept of their project.

"I shared the idea to my group mates and they like it so we pushed for the project," she added.

The art and craft shop's main offering is the hand-painted creations which the owner personally paints the products such as pillows, key chains, bar pins and other handy items, and other customized materials.

"I do personally the painting and all the stuffs, I learned the skills from my mother who is also into these stuffs with the help also with my younger sister," she added.

Prin En Shop offers a wide array of hand-painted creations and personalized products which carry the most intimate messages, and reflect an expression unique to each of our clients such as huggable pillow, frames, mugs, tumblers, key chains, bar pins, and other handy items, personalized and company shirts, couple shirts and invitation cards and materials.

"Our brand therefore speaks for something personal, individual, unique, different, and customized to each and every client. True to our name, in Prints en Paints, we make business and our customer’s needs, our personal passion and dedication," Rashid said.

First of its branch, Print En Shop is looking forward to put up more branches in and out the city.

"We do not just offer our customers quality products but we also give a personal touch to it, that is what I think our shop's edge from other gift shops, as our saying goes ' life has more meaning when you personalized it," the owner said.
