Long past is the need to put in months or years of research, market and product development;  all this has been done for you.

Trademarks, templates, branding and marketing has been established and acquired for you to use.

The price for this type of new territory is $8,500 with a basic start up kit of tools, materials and samples.  Resales of a ‘full’ franchise typically sell for more as they have a larger kit of tools, materials, samples, marketing, time invested, repeat business and goodwill.

Franchisees receive an exclusive territory,  the license rights to the marks and products but are also required to follow the formula of our franchise system. Our full franchise systems are given the rights to sell all products as listed on the WPCreations.com website.

‘Express Studios’
City Demographics – Population: Is typically between 25,000 – 50,000 people.  Based on population, there is typically not a strong enough demographic to sustain a full franchise therefore it is priced to be successful with the sales of any items sold on our ShopWPCreations.com website.

The price for this express type of franchise is $3,500 with a basic start up kit of tools, materials and samples.  Resales of a ‘express’ franchise typically sell for more as they have a larger kit of tools, materials, samples, marketing, time invested, repeat business and goodwill.

Founder – Debbie Cornelius – Wee Piggies & Paws (now WP Creations) was established in 2001.   The whole thing began as an innocent attempt to preserve Debbie’s daughters’ handprints to give to her husband as a unique Father’s Day gift.

Being on maternity leave (and missing her sales and marketing career), provided Debbie the time and motivation to do all the research and development required to eventually (after much trial and error), produce an adorable, exact replica of her daughters’ tiny hands onto a piece of art she was proud to hang on her wall.

It was not long before Debbie’s friends (and then their friends) began asking if she could do their child’s handprints. Debbie knew instinctively there was a market for this product and that she could essentially turn this into the most perfect work-at-home job for herself and her family.

Soon afterwards, customers began coming to Debbie from hours away. In addition to telling her she had the most perfect ‘dream job’, they began asking Debbie to teach them how to do this so they too, could work from home.

She researched work-at-home opportunities and could find nothing even remotely similar to this. Debbie knew instantly this was what she wanted to do – to show Moms everywhere how to begin and manage a business of their own – how to find the balance in their lives which she had found in hers.

The choice to Franchise came from a belief of hers that if you are going to do something, you should do it right and give it all you’ve got!

Through much determination and assistance and support from her husband and family, she began working on what we believe is the most perfect work-at-home business.

Looking back, Debbie is so proud of how this business has grown, what it has developed into and mostly what it means to franchisees and their families.

Becoming a WP Creations business owner will enable you to jumpstart your business from the day you get home from training. There is no research, product or marketing development required; everything has all been done for you!

We have not only done all the legwork and negotiating to get you the best possible pricing and discounts on your raw materials, but we have also combined the greatest ideas and resources from over 40 Moms like you who are doing this same business and we share these all with you (on an on-going basis).

Other benefits of joining our team are:

  • Low initial investment
  • Low overhead/ minimal on-going expenses
  • No royalties
  • Hands-on training/workshop
  • Materials, tools and start-up supplies
  • Ongoing support from head office and fellow

  • No minimum or maximum sales quotas; you control how hard and how many hours you work (and in turn, of course, how well you do)
  • Flexible work schedule tailored around you and your family
  • A tremendous sense of self-satisfaction in becoming a member of the business community in owning your own business
  • Pride in having the ability to produce one-of-a-kind pieces of art (knowing that what you create will likely be a parents treasured possession)
  • With so many women to rely on, and so much information to access, you will never feel like you are alone; help and support will always be available to assist you in resolving issues that inevitably come up in any business
  • With a WP Creations business, you are in business for yourself, but never by yourself!

  • Our 'Green' commitment
    Reducing our use of plastic & our carbon footprint
    Did you know that most of the materials we use here at WP Creations are compostable? Our moulding material for our lifecasting and our raised impressions products are deposited into 'green bins' and composted at most of our Canadian locations. Working with babies and children require us to ensure our materials are safe to work with but it's also important that our materials are safe to the environment. We clean and re-use each of our containers rather than recycle to get new. We have a variety of mixing options that reduce our dependency of using bags for mixing our moulding materials and cements. We've brought most of our tools, materials and supplies in house to reduce the number of shipments each of our locations have had to place. We're always open to working with our team to reduce our waste and carbon footprint.
  • Our Future Green Initiatives
    Product Packaging
    Packaging is important to any brand's appearance but ultimately that is not the final deciding factor. Once we have used up the plastic bags we have in house (with some recycled materials), we will be moving in a direction of packaging made from more sustainable materials.

I just wanted to say thanks again for listening to me today and your advice. Megan”

Wee Piggies has done so much for my life since my daughter Ava passed away. It kept me busy, distracted, grounded, in touch with people, freedom, flexibility, allowed me to stay home with Alivia and now Anaya. It many ways, I believe Wee Piggies saved me because it filled my days with purpose. Kept me getting up in the morning. Well, Alivia did that, but if I had clients, I had to get up and get ready and greet the day. I also have the most amazing keepsakes of Ava, Alivia, and Anaya. Truly, my Wee Piggies experience has been priceless. Thank you!!!  XOXOXO Sherri”
