Hello! We are so you excited you are looking into carrying our brand, and using our products to grow your business! There are so many reasons why we love STEEL! See our top reasons of why it's such a fantastic medium HERE.
We are pretty easy going, and your success is important to us. All of our products are the highest grade galvanized steel. We pride ourselves on offering a 40% discount on all bare metal shapes, 35% discount on all Porch Candy® branded bare metal and a 30% discount on all of our completed products and completed Porch Candy®, making it highly competitive with all other mediums that may not offer the same longevity, durability and flexibility. (*We do not offer a wholesale discount on Craft Kits.)
As creatives, "paperwork-y" stuff is our least favorite! (anything other than paperwork please). It is however a necessary step just to ensure we are both operating from a place of mutual respect and understand. So settle in rockstar, let's go over just a few things:
