Uppercase Living is a direct sales company founded in 2006 by Inger Erickson and Stephanie Geisler. The concept behind Uppercase Living is simple yet novel, the founders wanted to provide a meaningful product that would allow homeowners to express themselves, their beliefs, and inspirations in their personal space. Be it on the walls, doors, ceilings, or cabinets, Uppercase Living provides easy-to-apply vinyl expressions that homeowners can simply stick onto their desired space for a truly unique design that reflects their personal taste and preferences.
Uppercase Living has significantly grown as a home décor direct sales company in the last five years. Initially starting with just a few independent demonstrators, the company now has thousands of demonstrators representing its products all across the United States and as well as in Canada.
Letter stenciling and painting has been a popular decorative medium for many homeowners. However, it can be tricky to apply and often require the services of a professional. Uppercase Living provides a more practical, cost-efficient way to apply inspirational messages onto any surface. Through vinyl lettering, homeowners no longer have to deal with stencils and paint that are not only difficult to work with but can be quite messy to apply.
As one of the most popular home décor companies in the country, Uppercase Living offers hundreds of different products. You can find ready-made expressions that you simply have to order through a demonstrator or create your own with their special design software. Uppercase Living’s “MyDesign Suite” software application allows consumers to choose from over 50 font types, 30 different font colors, and hundreds of designs, allowing them to create custom-made vinyl lettering and designs for their homes. After designing your own vinyl lettering, you can proceed to order it and it will be delivered straight to your doorstep. Uppercase Living provides affordable per-letter pricing.
Aside from their flagship vinyl lettering products, Uppercase Living also now offers Blume Jewelry, a line of accessories that are carefully designed to suit the tastes of different women. You can find a wide assortment of accessories that would best suit your personality. They also feature bangles that contain the same inspiring messages available in their vinyl lettering pre-made collection. With Blume Jewelry, you can continue to be inspired even on the go.
