SPOTLIGHT BUSINESS: SANDPIEPER DESIGN, INC
For Katie Pieper life in the Lake of the Woods Community is the right choice for her and her family. Katie loves the area and helping area business tell their story. She uses that inspiration to fuel the creativity that makes her design business, SandPieper Design, so successful.
Katie is originally from Missoula, Montana but ended up going to high school in Coon Rapids, MN before venturing north to go to school at Bemidji State. It was there she met her husband, Chris Pieper, originally from the Lake of the Woods community. After marrying in 2004, she and Chris moved to the Lake of the Woods where she fell in love with tight-knit community, the big lake, the great school district, and most importantly, the people.
“We live where people go to vacation all year round. After work we have the luxury of hopping in the boat and taking our kids fishing. Ultimately I love raising our kids in a safe community where families watch out for each other. Don’t they say it takes a village to raise a family? This is what we have here!”
With a background graphic and website design, Katie saw a great opportunity to start her own business in Lake of the Woods and SandPieper Design Inc. was born. SandPieper is a multifaceted design firm that specializes in digital and print marketing. As a digital marketing professional, she helps customers develop, build, and design custom websites and offer secure website hosting. This includes website design, social media campaign management, search engine optimization, any other service needed by businesses to achieve their online marketing goals. On the print side, SandPieper creates custom design logos, brochure, posters, flyers, banners, business cards, window decals, signs and much more! Helping local businesses make big impressions is what inspires Katie to keep growing her business.
“I love the fact I can help small to large businesses have the look and feel of marketing from the cities in our small town. To be able to see their signs, logos and marketing materials all over the place is a pretty neat feeling to know you are helping them make an impact and grow their company.”
Her advice for anyone considering Lake of the Woods:
“There are so many opportunities for growth in this community from shops, boutiques to services and contractors. Come to a chamber meeting and visit with the locals. There are lots of great people to help you make your ideas a reality!”
