IMPACT Startup Visa Spotlight: Pineapple Prints

As we continue to feature each of our IMPACT Startup Visa companies, we’re excited to introduce Pineapple Prints from Poland!

 

The Beginning

While planning their own wedding a few years ago, Kate and Kamil couldn’t find any unique and original wedding invitations that suited their taste. They decided to fill this need in the market by using their passion and experience to create a new platform selling personalized and custom products like wedding stationery, occasion cards and art wall prints. And so, Pineapple Prints was born!

 

 

Transitions

Initially, the company was founded in Poland, but in May 2013, they moved to the UK. This opened up great opportunities to develop and expand into new markets. Thanks to these new possibilities, North America became their next target market. 
 
“Impact Startup Visa gave us a great opportunity to achieve our goals and dreams of settling in British Columbia, Canada.” 

 

Pineapple Prints aims to: 

  • Help couples find stunning wedding stationery
  • Create limitless possibilities using the personalization platform on their website, which allows every piece to be fully customized by the customer to suit their needs and tastes
  • Offer high quality products for a good price in a short time using new technologies in printing, like foil fusing and white ink.
