About Papierzucker

On Etsy since 2020

What is Papierzucker?

The name 'Papierzucker' and the corresponding website were created in 2016. I was still studying at university and already very active on Instagram before, but back then I started to take illustration more seriously.

After uni I worked full-time as a researcher in Linguisitcs and after a good year I changed my career path to become an online marketer. I specialized in SEO and learned a lot, but after a while I felt something was not right, or incomplete and I decided to go part-time in order to pursuit an illustration career as well. I am still at the beginning, but it feels great to spend more time with the things I love to do.

All the illustrations you can find on products in my shop were designed by me. In the very beginning I produced the stickers and prints with two different printing companies (s. below). Meanwhile I own a professional printer and print everything by myself. This will (hopefully) not only be more cost-effective, but is also more eco-friendly, because I don't need to buy 200 prints of the same image.

Every order goes through my own hands. I package and I ship my products directly to you. You can definitely expect a little personal note or thank-you-item ;)

For the future I plan to offer hand-crafted products such as hand-painted tote bags, original paintings and small commissioned drawings as well.

Production partners

  • Flyeralarm

    Würzburg, Germany

    Bei Flyeralarm habe ich die ersten Sticker für meinen Shop drucken lassen. Seit ich meinen eigenen Profidrucker habe, stelle ich meine Sticker selbst her.

  • Pinguin Druck GmbH

    Berlin, Germany

    Bei Pinguin Druck habe ich meine ersten Postkarten und Prints drucken lassen (alle Motive noch verfügbar). Mittlerweile mache ich das allerdings selbst, da ich nun einen professionellen Drucker besitze. So ist es mir auch möglich, personalisierte Grußkarten und sehr kleine Auflagen herzustellen.
