Letter from the CEO 12.16.22 (Gift Guide, New Pride Designs, etc.)

By Sierra RyanWallick


Hello everyone!

Welcome to our seventh “Letter from the CEO”, a letter directly from our CEO Sierra. Every other week, this letter will include behind-the-scenes of UP Cycle Design and share exciting updates so you’re the first to know. Today's letter features a Gift Guide, TWO new pride designs, and an events recap!

Gift Guide!

Below you will find a gift guide that can help you find the perfect gift for your needs! All of these designs can be made with a sticker backing, as an ornament, or as a patch, and two can also be wall art!

For the Dog Owners in your life:

For the Endangered Animal Lovers in your life:

For the Allies or LGBTQ+ humans in your life:

You can also find gifts for ice skaters, cat lovers, and supporters of the BLM movement, women empowerment, kids fighting cancer, ocean cleanups, returning citizens, mental health, Ukrainian refugees, and so much more if you visit our shop here!

TWO New Pride Designs

We have been hard at work on not one but TWO pride designs! The design on the left below is a new and improved version (now even more inclusive!) of our old pride design that supports DE Pride! On the right, you will see a completely new design that supports The Trevor Project (a national nonprofit focused on suicide prevention efforts among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning youth - they offer a much-needed toll-free telephone number where confidential assistance is provided by trained counselors) AND is customizable with two characters! You can have your state's abbreviations (DE, PA, MD, etc) or your school (UD, UW, etc) or your initials (Jane Doe would be JD)! Check them out here.

Events Recap

In the last two weeks, we had a booth at TWO different events! We attended the 30th Annual Country Christmas Craft Fair and the University of Delaware Sustainable Small Business Fair! We had such a blast at these two events and continued to experiment with different displays! Check out a picture below from the Sustainable Small Business Fair!

We're Hiring!

We are currently looking to add two new team members to our UP Cycle Design family: 1. Internal Impact Coordinator & 2. Sales Intern! Below, we have flyers for the positions with position description QR codes that you can share. Preference given to UD students or those in the Newark, DE area. If you or anyone you know would be interested in either of the two following roles, please email us at If you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out! Thank you for your help in sharing this opportunity!

Featured Product: Mental Health Yin Yang Semi-Colon Design


Thank you so much for being on this exciting journey with us, and we can’t wait to share what’s next!

Let’s UP Cycle and Design A Better Future Together,
