A sampling of just a few of our products mixed in with other craft supplies as well as artwork created by some of our many talented Artists in Residence this year.

Only one week before the deadline for your Artist in Residence 2017 application is due. We have so much fun with our Artists and wanted to get across to you really how fun, educational and rewarding it is to be an AIR. So, we thought you should hear it from them!

“I’m having a wonderful time with it, and I’m learning a lot too!”
−Alison Heikkila

“I have really enjoyed working with all of the Imagine products and look forward to the new ones that may be in development. I see only good things ahead for Artist in Residence and Imagine!”
−Neva Cole

“I sincerely love the products and enjoy trying to come up with fresh and unique ways to incorporate Imagine products into various projects. I’ve never been a good salesman at selling myself but I give 110% to all of the companies I work for and I may give a bit more to Imagine because it feels like a family.”
−Roni Johnson

We can’t wait to see what all you creative people come up with! We encourage you to apply so you can join in all the fun with us. (Plus, think of how many years it will be before you have to ever buy another ink pad! Did we mention we partner with other companies like Echo Park Paper, CAS-ual Fridays, and Xyron which give you more freebies for your stash? Not to mention the fact that we will promote your artwork all over the place!) Click on the badge below for information on how to apply to be one of Imagine’s 2017 Artists in Residence.
