Steve and Alma Mitchell founded American Crafts in 1994 with their sons. Together, they quickly built the company into a business catering to the general crafting market. Initially specializing in pen manufacturing, American Crafts produced a variety of gel and ink pens and markers — customer favorites that are still part of the company’s lineup today.
COMPANY SUCCESS & GROWTH
Since then, American Crafts has steadily increased its range of products, becoming a trendsetter along the way. Over the past 8 years, American Crafts has acquired many brands including Pebbles Inc., Crate Paper, Heidi Swapp, We R Memory Keepers, Pink Paislee, Bazzill Basics Paper and Coredinations to offer an even wider variety of products to scrapbookers around the world.
In the last two years, American Crafts expanded further into new and trending markets, including food crafting, mixed media and more. Exciting partnerships were formed with Megan Snyder of 1canoe2, as well as with food crafters Callye Alvarado of Sweet Sugarbelle and Megan Faulkner Brown of The Sweet Tooth Fairy. Other partnerships included the talented mixed media artists, Jane Davenport and Vicki Boutin.
