About Us

Thank you for visiting De La Design Gifts Pottery Supplies. 

De La Design, LLC is owned and operated by Jeff and Debi DelaCruz. We are a family owned business that started out as a custom vinyl business in 2009. In 2020, we expanded our business to include 3D printed pottery tools. As this new venture has grown, we have downsized our vinyl business to just a few of our best selling items. Our focus now is on pottery tools and supplies. Just this past year, we were fortunate enough to move the majority of the business to a small office building in Springfield, MO. 
 
We've recently brought on several family members as new employees as we continue to grow. Our team consists of:

Debi

Owner, designer and hobby potter. I started the vinyl business in 2009 on my own and eventually added my husband and employees to the team. In 2020, I realized that I couldn't find cookie cutters in large sizes to do what I wanted to do with pottery. I knew we wanted to expand our business and since I knew that they were products that I wanted as a potter, others would as well. I bought several printers and began the task of learning the machines and dusting off my design skills. I oversee all areas of the business and do a bit of everything. I am a former designer at a stainless steel pre-processing plant.

Jeff

Husband and co-owner. He helps out with the vinyl side when it gets busy but has mainly been focused on inspecting and cleaning up the 3D prints and helping with printer maintenance. Jeff's previous work was as a welder and lead at a stainless steel pre-processing plant.

Corie

My daughter. She works for us full time and runs most of the 3D printing side of things starting up printers, filling orders, and helping out in others areas when needed. 

Addison

The niece of my children. She runs the vinyl business almost entirely on her own and helps out with the 3D printing, starting up printers and sorting orders as needed.

Kenzie

My daughter-in-law. She has recently committed to working full time for us while she goes back to school. She helps with both the vinyl and 3D doing shipping, filling orders, and other odd jobs. If you contact us via email, you're most likely talking to Kenzie!

Christy

One of two non-relatives, Christy is a local high school girl that works part time. She helps run the printers and fulfill orders.

Dacey

The other non-relative who happens to be a friend of Corie's. Dacey takes care of cleaning prints, boxing, and shipping.
