We are so excited to announce that, thanks to our new Canadian Distributor Em & Kat Glitter Factory, we are now able to offer our products to the amazing resin artists of Canada! 

We are thrilled to be teaming up with Aimee of Em & Kat Glitter Factory and we want to introduce her to all of you. Aimee’s company is named after her twin girls, Emily and Katie. They, along with Aimee’s husband Richard, live in British Colombia Canada. Aimee has been a crafter for years but had a hard time finding quality craft supplies where she lived. Aimee’s solution: find those craft supplies for herself and also offer them to her fellow Canadian creatives.

Introducing our Canadian Distributor: Em & Kat Glitter Factory

Like us, Aimee is committed to bringing high quality products to her customers. The customers of Em & Kat Glitter Factory range from the at home crafter to artists who are able to make their living selling their own creations. We have something else in common too. They also have a supportive community in their Facebook group: Em & Kat Glitter Factory Group. The group is an amazing group of positive and supportive people. It is full of amazing crafters/artists who love to give helpful advice, share projects, and have some laughs together. They also have monthly challenges that include things like Cup Challenges, Name this Glitter, and Birthday Month winners. You can find a ton of great information in the group as well as new products and discount codes. Be sure to keep an eye on the announcements for the latest contests!

An Interview with Aimee

We asked Aimee a few questions so that we could all get to know each other better and we want to share some of her responses with you!

Q: Why did you decide to bring Counter Culture DIY to your Canadian consumers?

A: “I absolutely love ALL the Counter Culture DIY products and knew that Canada absolutely NEEDED this product readily available in their hands! I don’t know of another epoxy that has the quality and the shine of the final product like Counter Culture DIY!  The reception for the products, in Canada, has been amazing.”

Q: Why do your customers select you over your competitors?

A: “I believe that I have some of the best customer support in Canada because I try and give them the best customer service (and products) out of all my competitors. I believe that making sure a customer’s experience from start to finish is a positive one!”

Q: Do you have a favorite craft project that you like to do often? If so, what are your favorite products to use?

A: “I love decoration tumblers, I just tried Quick Coat on a fabric tumbler and LOVE the fact that all I needed was two coats and I could epoxy. I did that all in one day instead of waiting 2 or 3 days. I would really like to try and do a table top that has some beautiful micas mixed throughout it. I look at all the artists photos from Counter Culture DIY’s website and Facebook page and get inspired!”

Q: Are there other products you plan to add to your company? 

A: “I would really like to get some crushed stones to more flakes. Give more depth to projects! I am also always open to people asking if I can bring some new items to our website. So send me a message or email. I would love to hear from you!!
