Inkspirationz is a full-service design studio and custom fabrication shop based in Whitehorse, Yukon. From Inkz's humble beginnings as a sign painting shop of one, we've grown to a staff of six sign makers, fabricators and designers. Come see us to discuss your next signage, branding or display project.
With an experienced shop and design team, we handle projects from conception to delivery.
We have a reputation for being the crazy cat ladies and gentlemen of the Yukon... but don't let that scare you away. The shop cat Monte will try to greet you at the front counter, so if you have an allergy please let our staff know and we can make arrangements to facilitate your project meetings offsite.
Stephanie Churchill started Inkspirationz as a sign painting and graphic design shop nearly 35 years ago and alongside her partner, Jim Cleaver, built a business that was recognized with a Young Entrepreneur Award from the Canadian Federal Business Development Bank. Inkz grew into the largest custom sign fabrication shop in the territory and their mentorship of staff members have produced some of the best sign shop professionals working in the Yukon. We have the skills to build your sign frames, recommend products and provide the expertise necessary to make your project succeed. Stephane, Amber, Logan and Max are often in the shop mounting materials to substrate or putting the finishing touches in all the right places, and Natalia, Jodie and Victoria overcome the great risks of carpal tunnel – day in and day out – creating effective designs and product recommendations for our clients.
Amber's hard work and organization skills keep everything in our shop moving like a well-oiled machine. She's become the heart and soul of our shop team!
Natalia graduated from the Alberta College of Art and Design and came to work at Inkspirationz as a fulltime designer after originally starting as a production staff member in 2010.
Logan's experience as a painter has given him a leg up on some of our custom finishing processes. He's the newest Inkz shop employee and we love having him around because he brings us muffins and donuts.
Victoria came to us from another great Yukon business, Baked Cafe and Eatery. She handles all of our client relations and quoting. Shoot her a note if you would like to get a project started!
With a background in newspaper, agency and sign shop work, Jodie's well-rounded approach to design allows her to approach any task. She has 10 years of experience with design and production and was the JHM Newspaper Design Award winner in 2009, and the Bronze Medalist in the National Skills Competition in 2010.
Max started at Inkspirationz in 2012 with something of a family connection (Natalia is his aunt!). He's grown on us and he's an asset to our production and installation work - with a special emphasis on car installations and wraps.
