My Top 3: Creative Small Business Equipment Edition

Starting a creative small business can be overwhelming. There are so many pieces of technology and equipment that can help, guide and assist you in your business or essential for your business. It is all depending on what you are doing, your budget, your aims and expectations for your business.


Now I am nowhere near a business guru. I am very much learning as I go, but I thought it would be helpful to share my top 3 favourite pieces of equipment that I use for my business. If you don't know by now, I run my illustration business which specialises in cute and unique stationery, stickers, gifts and much more.

Disclaimer: The items I am talking about are my favourite based on my own experience for my specific business and business needs and preferences. I recommend you always do your own research before you invest in any pieces of equipment.

Links for the items are included at the end of this post. All Links are AD-Affiliate Links.


1. Apple iPAD and Apple Pencil

This is technically two items but as I always use them both together for these purposes I am counting them as one.

I have the Apple iPad Pro along with the Apple Pencil. There are many different drawing tablets on the market and I have only used these but I absolutely love them for what I need. I use them together with the app Procreate for my illustrating.

(I do use other software for my illustrating along with procreate, but that can wait for another blog post)

Some of my favourite things I like about the iPad and Apple Pencil are the size of the iPad screen, the responsiveness of the Apple Pencil and the ease of use for both.
