I love the freshness of your stationary designs! How did you get started in stationary and Karen Cole Designs?
I’ve always loved paper and making invitations, even as a kid I made birthday party invites. My background is in interior design and art. After having children, I stopped working to focus on my family and as they got older I realized that I needed to be creative again to maintain my sanity and stationery was a natural thing to do. I started Karen Cole Paper in 2004 when I realized that there was a void in the market for clean, bold colors and designs on invitations, announcements and notes. I made most of my children’s birthday invitations because what was in the marketplace were too busy or commercial.
