The Cheery Pet is a line of pet-inspired gifts designed by Jessi McNeal created to celebrate the joy that pets bring to our lives! The business began in 2019 when Jessi started hand painting custom dog ornaments and portraits but couldn't keep up with orders. So she created a line of breed based designs that could be reproduced onto ornaments and mugs and then personalized. Since then her collection has expanded to include note cards, notepads and pet bandanas!
Each or our designs starts as a painting or illustration by Jessi, and the images are then printed onto ceramic ornaments, mugs, greeting cards, notepads and fabric for our pet bandanas. My husband Travis and I print or make almost all of our products ourselves and prioritize materials that are US made and ethically sourced.
Our studio is in a charming 100-year-old barn that my husband Travis restored, located in Mount Vernon, a rural town about an hour north of Seattle.
The Cheery Pet products are currently available at over 30 pet shops and boutiques in 15 states, with new locations being added every year.
Jessi and Travis have four adult children (plus two sons-in-law!) one grandchild and a sassy dilute tortie cat named Belle.
