Here are a few sneak peeks and behind-the-scenes shots of my new collection that will be available on Tuesday, August 23rd. I couldn't be more excited about this release, which includes 25 new greeting cards and 4 notebook designs. It also marks my debut into the world of digitally-printed products. I'll admittedly say that the transition to digital printing was a bit scary at first, but I eventually realized it was necessary in order for me to express myself in new creative ways and keep up with demand as my brand grows. With that said, I worked countless hours to create designs that would perfectly coordinate with my existing line of paper cut goods. One thing that remains at the core of my work, is my love for texture, simplicity and natural color palettes. I'm so pleased with how it's come together and hope you love it as much as I do!
To coincide with the launch of my Spring/Summer Collection, I am excited to announce that I have a shiny new wholesale catalog. It was redesigned to better highlight each product's features and to make ordering a breeze.
If you're a retailer and are interested in stocking Evermore Paper Co. goods in your store, please contact me at email@example.com and I will provide you with all the necessary details.
With over 30 new items, this is my largest release ever! I continue to be inspired by textiles from around the world and enjoyed experimenting with new techniques in an attempt to translate them into my papercut designs.
My efforts resulted in an array of new items that combine my signature papercut illustrations with hand-painted textures and vibrant new colorways. It's what I've come to refer to as "Evermore 2.0" and I'm so happy to finally share it with you. I'm most excited to introduce my open-dated planner. It is designed with the habitual list-maker in mind and has already become a staple in my studio.
Here's a sneak peek of a card I'm working on for my spring line. I'm excited to be back to drawing more florals. Also, I've been experimenting with some new color palettes. Can't wait to show you more later this month.
I'm excited to announce that Evermore is officially ready to take on wholesale orders! I even added a fancy navigation button up top where retailers can submit their request for a catalog and additional info. I'm really looking forward to this next phase and I am so excited (and maybe even a little jealous) of all the places my cards will go!
I'm doing a little happy dance today because my holiday collection is officially available for purchase! 15 festive new card designs and 5 boxed sets have just been added to the shop. But wait, it gets better! I've also launched a new gift wrap and packaging line that includes sticker sets and gift wrapping kits that are full of a variety of goodies such as twine, hang tags, stickers, and more. You can check out the new items here:
Also, since the holiday spirit is already in full swing over here, I'd like to offer a special discount to friends and family as a way to say thanks for all your incredible support. Through this Sunday, November 24th, you can receive 10% off your purchase of any holiday items using the code HOHOHO.
Now that Halloween has passed and November, along with red Starbucks cups, are here, I think it's safe to say that the holiday season has officially begun. I've been working nonstop on my winter collection and wanted to share a few sneak peaks of some of the new cards that will be available soon. Several motifs keep popping up in the designs, including woodland animals, sweater patterns, and pretty floral wreaths. To add to the excitement, I will also be introducing gift wrap, holiday banners, envelope seals and sticker sets, because I want all of you to have the best looking packages around.
But wait, it gets even better! I am beyond thrilled to announce that I will also be attending Renegade Craft Fair's Winter Market in December. This is my first craft fair and I am both excited and nervous (mostly excited) and looking forward to selling my goods directly to buyers. I will be sharing snippets of my progress here and on instagram over the next few weeks so that you can follow as I prep. Meanwhile, here are the details so that you can mark your calendars!
Renegade Craft Fair Winter Market
December 7 + 8

I know fall just started, but with today being the three month mark until Christmas, I thought I'd share a little sneak peek of what I have in the works for my holiday collection. Along with the cards and boxed sets, I am also working on a few additional seasonal items, including gift tags. But that's all I'm sharing with you for now! I already feel like a kid on Christmas Eve in anticipation for this release, so hopefully I won't explode with excitement before then.
I just added a number of new goodies to the shop, including personalized stationery sets! Yes, you read that correctly, Personalized. Stationery. Sets! Since opening my shop, I've had big dreams of offering customizable cards and I can't tell you how excited I am now that I offer two variations. I had a lot of fun creating these items and I hope they will give me the opportunity to get to know my customers a little better. In addition, I added several other new cards and another boxed set of assorted cards to the shop. I hope you like them!
When it comes to designing, I've found that selecting the right font can often be the most tedious and time-consuming part of the process. It's hard to find that balance of using a type that is subtle enough to not be distracting but powerful enough to convey the right meaning and emotions. This is where typography truly becomes an art form within itself and the reason why I have spent countless hours trying to track down the perfect fonts. As a result, I often use my own hand lettering in my designs, but every once in a while I come across a font that is too beautiful to resist. Here are just a few of my favorites, along with a snapshot of a greeting card design I am working on using Ribbon.
Four new cards have been added to the shop! My personal favorites are the "You Rock" and "You're Amazing" cards which were created with my friends in mind following the huge outpouring of support I received since my shop opening. Also, because I am a fan of simple love notes, I created the "You + Me" card to serve as a sweet gesture any time throughout the year. And lastly, the "Happy Birthday" card combines fun fonts with a bold starburst pattern and is perfect for any recipient. You can find them all here.
After weeks of focusing solely on prepping for my shop opening, it was nice to finally get back to designing this week. I’m currently working on some more hand-lettered greetings featuring complimentary messages written in a combination of fonts and embellished with ornamental details. You can expect to find them in the shop during the first week of September.
