TPC Nation Shop launched on June 1, 2020 in response to the overwhelming success of The Planners Collaborative. TPC had been a thriving community with monthly sale component for more than three years, and Caitlin knew it was time to go to the next level. This was about more than simply offering TPC merch-- it was a way to pay it forward and pay it back.
From Day 1, TPC Nation has featured both collaborations with existing shopowners as well as superfans turned TPC artisans. The latter are fantastically creative and talented women who have all been active members of TPC for some time and now are showcasing their handmade products alongside full-time shop owners.
Over 97% of our products are handmade in-house by our artisan team. Currently we offer two products that also bring in collaboration with local small businesses. The first is our full dashboard line is drawn by Artisan Alli and then produced by a small local print shop in her southern Illinois hometown. The second is our embroidered Tipsy hoodies which are designed by Caitlin and Stephanie featuring Stephanie's handlettering and then produced by a husband and wife owned embroidery shop in southern Maine.
Our products offerings are wide-ranging but fall in three category types:
1) TPC Nation community and event merch and apparel
2) Individual products showcasing the incredible talent of our artisans
3) Collaboration products between Caitlin (aka The Chief Consumer) and our shopowners artisans (aka The Talent).
