Why Small Businesses Matter
Shop small, do big things for your community
Why Small Businesses Matter puts a spotlight on the local merchants who donate their time, talent, goods, and services for the betterment of our community. The shop local movement spreads virally as local businesses who are “tagged” have the opportunity to share their story!
You're IT YourCover!
Three questions with the founder of YourCover.
Why did you start your business?
YourCover was started to help our customers celebrate the special people and events in their life with a unique keepsake gift - a personalized magazine cover. The cover is created online at www.yourcover.com - simply choose one of the nearly 100 templates, upload your photo and customize the headline text to be all about the person in the photo. Choose the photo file download (to print yourself) which is delivered instantly on the order confirmation page and by email, or let us print and frame your gift for you.
What is your best-selling product/service?
The image file download of the "Make Your Own Title" magazine cover is our best seller. This template allows the user to create any title they might want, from "Train Conductor Monthly" to "Labrador Love 4Ever!" to "Dogue" - the blank MYOT template allows your creative juices to flow. But we've got nearly 100 other templates for every type of milestone event, holiday, interest, or personality.
Have you "reimagined" your small business?
YourCover started out with an in-house graphic designer and copywriter, but eventually, the internet caught up with our vision and we were able to reimagine and then relaunch our DIY online magazine cover editor and bring the cost down from $325 to only $9.95!
A local business that YourCover thinks should participate next in this series is the Produce Market on Main Ave - They don't know us but it's a great little local business that really serves a need and just expanded their store!
HamletHub thanks Fairfield County Bank for making our Why Small Businesses Matter series possible!
