The name Troops on Print came about from Gabrielle's love for Stomp Troopers and printmaking, the latter of which she majored in at Lasalle College of the Arts.
"It is something that you need to be precise and meticulous in, which is a total opposite from my character. However, I surprisingly love all the different techniques from etching, to silkscreening, and lithography," she says.
Having always wanted to start her own business since young, Gabrielle started Troops On Print after two years of working and gaining confidence in illustrating her products.
She sees this quote from 'Fix You' by Coldplay as motivation: “But if you never try you’ll never know just what you’re worth.” Well, Gabrielle tried, and this turned out to be a real worthy endeavour!
