Hey everyone, welcome back to Hammer Soaps! I've been pretty busy these past few months. As you can see, I've made some changes to the logo and my website. I want to take the time to let you all know what's new with Hammer Soaps.
As many of you know, I've been doing the soap thing for quite a few years now (OMG 5!). You've probably purchased my soaps, maybe received some as gifts, or even given them as gifts yourselves. I've always gotten really positive feedback that tells me you guys love the way it makes your skin feel, how long it lasts, and how nice it looks and smells. I am more appreciative than I can say for that feedback. It's really inspired me to make the best soap for you all and I am beyond grateful for all of your support.
During this time though, I've been making much more than just bar soap. I've been creating other fun bath and body goodies. I've made solid bubble bath bars, lotions, liquid soaps, lip balms, bath bombs, scrubs and even trying my hand at mixing my very own exclusive fragrances. Now, all of this that I've done has been on very small scale that hasn't been much bigger than for my own personal and immediate family's use. Even with my soaps, I've only every kept that scale really small by selling locally with friends, family, and acquaintances. Outside of several craft shows and craft malls, along with a few Etsy sales, I've not really made Hammer Soaps a true business. It's still sits squarely at "hobby status". But now, that's about to change.
What Happens Next?
I'm re-branding Hammer Soaps as Hammer Soaps Bath & Body. I want to do so much more than just soaps. As cold process soap has always been my first love, there are so many more things that I've created that I want to share with not only my friends and family, but everyone! I want everyone to have a chance at using the products I create! That is why I'm officially upgrading Hammer Soaps from a mere hobby, to a legit business, able to produce at a much larger scale. In the coming days, I'll be laying out the entire scope of my vision with information about the products I will produce, my business model, and the scale of production I will be looking at.
How You Can Help.
At the end of August, I will be launching an Indiegogo campaign to fund the initial launch of Hammer Soaps Bath & Body. Things like larger scale production equipment, bulk ingredients, and packaging will be in my funding goals. You can look forward to early access to products and goodies as perks with your support. Again, over the next 8 weeks, I want to excite and inspire you with all of the really cool things that are going to be happening before my campaign goes live. So, keep tuned to this space for regular news and updates. Also, subscribe to my various social media pages and sign up for my newsletter (on the homepage) to stay on top of everything Hammer Soaps! Thanks again for your support!
