About CRAFT VAPERY:
CRAFT VAPERY was founded by a team of seasoned entrepreneurs with an unrelenting passion for vaping. It was this passion, however, that also led to frustration with what appeared to be the typical vaping experience: a daunting, confusing, time consuming, and costly process that required far too much education, research, trial, error, and waste.
There had to be a better way. Armed with highly complementary skills and perspectives, a wealth of vaping industry expertise, and a fierce commitment to quality, CRAFT VAPERY’s founders set out to build a company they wished had existed when they started vaping. Thus CRAFT VAPERY was born, fulfilling its flagship mission to continuously innovate and improve the vaping experience. For more information please visit the CRAFT VAPERY website.
