First things first. How did Sugar Paper begin? Which role do you each play?
Sugar Paper started with a love of paper and a fondness for letterpress printing. We both grew up loving cards and stationery, and a lot of the high quality options felt too granny to us. We wanted the quality of our grandmother’s stationery with an aesthetic that would appeal to a younger generation. We started tinkering with an antique letterpress and Sugar Paper was born.
Within the business we play different roles - Jamie is finance and Chelsea is marketing - but we both art direct and design everything we make. We’re still very hands-on when it comes to product development.
