“Our goal is to transform gift giving..."
SAN JOSE, Calif. (PRWEB) December 10, 2017
December 5, 2017 — Carrie Weimer used to focus on winning auto races by being the fastest driver on the track. Now, the talented graphic designer and former professional racer applies her winning skills to being fastest to the market with innovative new ideas. Using a simple upload process, Weimer’s latest venture, FunGiftWrap.com, is an Internet-based business that offers consumers professionally designed wrapping paper created out of any digital photo they choose — allowing people’s favorite faces, places and moments to jump straight off the screen to deliver a one-of-a-kind gift-giving experience.
After nearly two decades in the design business, primarily focused on creating the highest-quality vinyl graphics for amateur and professional auto racers, as well as banners and custom murals for businesses, Weimer and her partner, dad Michael Drysdale, are enthusiastic about applying her skills and capabilities as well as her unmatched experience to a new enterprise that reaches a vastly different audience.
“When we give someone a gift, it’s an expression of our love and caring,” Weimer said. “The best gifts are highly personal, demonstrating that we know and understand a person’s hopes, dreams, and wishes. We thought, ‘How can you go beyond the gift itself to make the gift-giving an event — something that will be celebrated even more by the recipient?’ The answer is to make the wrapping paper as personal as the gift is.”
Driven for Success
21 years ago, Weimer started her small business as so many entrepreneurs do — at home, in this case on her kitchen table — creating custom vinyl graphics for racecars. As an avid racer herself, Weimer has long had a passion for all things motor sports-related and a vision to focus that passion into developing a successful company. Her hard work, dedication, and attention to detail rapidly transformed the homegrown project into a booming business. Today, Weimer runs Millers Vinyl Graphics out of the Club Auto Sport business community in North San Jose — creating high-quality signs, banners, and custom decals.
Weimer’s creativity extends to every aspect of her life. She loves to make custom gifts for friends and family using the same design talent and sophisticated equipment that she relies on in her business.
Recently, she was faced with a dilemma — she had a gift for her nephew’s 6th birthday party, but no wrapping paper. The invitation to the party had included a photo of her nephew, complete with a giant, toothless grin. Weimer was inspired by the photo, and designed her very own wrapping paper. The star of the show? Her nephew and his toothless smiling face, surrounded by the number “6” in the shape of a birthday candle. And thus, FunGiftWrap.com was born.
