Partner with Poetry

Whether you're an up-and-coming creative looking to get on the map, or you're trying to find the perfect finishing touch for a corporate project, we've got your back. We've put together two partner programs to do our bit in helping you!

Our Creative Partner Program is for all up-and-coming local artisans that are looking to get their name out there, and our Trade Partner Program is ideal for those looking for a carefully curated collection of homeware items and corporate gifts.




Creative Partners

Whether you're an established brand or an emerging artist, we would love to stock your wares. We're also open to working with you from a collaborative perspective for up-and-coming talent or small businesses of all kinds.
