About Us

The Pawshhtag brand is managed and run by a small family that currently resides in Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada. The team consists of Ryan who does all the work, Anna who provides constructive criticism, and their incredible pup Teva who is secretly in charge of the whole operation. 

Ryan first started his company Craftech Labs with the idea of designing 3D printable consumer products as well as providing design and 3D printing services to the general public. Since the idea behind Pawshhtag was conceived, it has been the main focus of the business.


Ryan - Mechanical Designer
Mechanical Designer

Creative, laid back, and a natural leader. Ryan’s intrinsic entrepreneurial spirit led him to start Craftech Labs, and his ambition to succeed is driving him forward. When he’s not working or tinkering with his 3D printers, Ryan loves to play guitar and write songs, or play any one of a multitude of sports - with ice hockey being the number one favourite.


Anna - Financial Analyst
Business Development

Passionate, driven, and diligent. Anna’s business acumen and critical thinking skills are essential to Craftech Labs future growth. When she’s not at the office, Anna can be found practicing her flamenco dancing skills, or out in nature exploring all that the beautiful west coast has to offer. Let’s not forget she’s also an outstanding cook!


Teva - Happy, Friendly, and Hungry
Happy, Friendly, & Hungry

Pronounced TEH-VAH - she is the happiest, friendliest, and (like most labs) hungriest furry family member you will ever meet. She supports every decision Ryan and Anna make with unwavering tail wagging and body wiggling, and she is always ready to cheer them up during tough times.
