Imperfect Dust was created by Danielle Stringer. She began making signs with scripture and inspirational remarks in order to give God credit for the many benefits she has received. Her letters are intended to encourage other believers to keep their eyes on the things that matter most in life. Psalm 103:15, Because He knows our frame, He recalls that we are dust, is the inspiration for Imperfect Dust. Despite our shortcomings, God loves us and shows mercy to us, according to this verse.
Since then, Imperfect Dust has evolved into a family company. She collaborates with her father, Danny, who is in charge of all woodworking. He constructs the wooden signs and frames, while she is in charge of the lettering.
