From Little Seeds Grow Great Trees

When I first started manufacturing custom concrete bricks in 2016, I had my heart set on making larger scale brick sets for gardens, walkways, open spaces, and parks.

My initial goal was to create special song lyrics, sayings, or poems with their words stamped in individual concrete bricks –similar to the look of the Magnetic Poetry sets from my junior high days.

As logistical issues associated with shipping bricks developed, smaller sets and individual bricks became higher priority products in order to build the brickerie.

After working for the last 3 years to develop a solid concrete mix, an efficient process, and a healthy customer base, I’ve been granted the opportunity to build one of my largest continuous sets of bricks to date, and get back to what I had intended to build originally.

Using 3 custom-blended concrete shades to match their branding, and custom 3D printed concrete stamps with their typeface, I’m creating a 48″ x 48″ set with the Gangplank Values:

collaboration over competition

community over agendas

participation over observation

doing over saying

friendship over formality

boldness over assurance

learning over expertise

people over personalities

Once the custom brick set is finished, it will be installed at the main entrance of the building, providing all who enter with an immediate introduction to the values that make the space the gem that it is. My little business has been transformed by the people that build this community of entrepreneurs (I’ll write more on that later), and I’m so excited to put my personal touch on the space that helped the brickerie blossom. Each and every custom brick purchased is helping that tree grow, so I thank you deeply for your support.
