Our Story

The owner, Sara Foley is originally from Bancroft, Ontario, where she bought her first 30" cutter (still running today). Her very first project was vehicle decals and signs for a friend that was running for council in his area.

 

In 2014 Sara took a big step! She purchased a 54" printer as well as a 54" laminator and all the toys that come with it! Shortly after, she met her now husband Rob Foley. The long time resident of the Smiths Falls and Perth area, convinced Sara to move here, setting up shop in Rob's garage in 2015.

 

Rob has been a major asset to the growth of the company. When the business was still new to the area Rob was working a full time job as a technician and maintenance

planner at Procter and Gamble. He dedicated many hours to help Sara with production and installations.

 

In 2017 Howling Designs started outgrowing that little garage and Procter and Gamble announced the pending closure of their Brockville plant, prompting Sara and Rob to go all in on the business. Sara and Rob signed a lease to a 2000sqft commercial space on Maple Avenue, spending the next three and a half years growing rapidly both personally and professionally. 

 

Rob attended the 3M Preferred Installer training to increase his knowledge and skills for wrapping. Rob and Sara expanded the apparel side of the business with the purchase of a Brother GTX Direct to Garment Printer which prints high quality full colour images right onto fabric.

 

In 2021 another move was required, to a larger space. 88 Cornelia Street West, Unit F, Smiths Falls is now the home of Howling Designs. The new shop has 3000sqft and has been filled with more equipment. A flatbed printer, a CNC router and a screen printer have been added to serve clients better.

 

"We want to thank all of our loyal customers and our community for their continued support and for helping us grow.
