About

A Little Polkadot Love

Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved paper and stationery. I have had a stationery stash for as long as I can remember. I loved bringing home a new set of dollar-store stationery after a shopping trip with my Mom and Nana. My favorites were the ones that came with coordinating boxes. Today, things aren't much different. I still love stationery (and yes, sometimes from the dollar store), I am passionate about paper and design, and I love to design stationery and print it on pretty paper.

Out of high school, I went to college to become a graphic designer. I'd never taken an art class in my life, but I knew this was my calling. I designed invitations and cards throughout college and planned fun parties for my friends. As I set out into the world, aside from my full-time design job, I designed invitations for friends, for myself, and then for people I didn't even know. My love of stationery was rekindled with these side jobs and I decided to go into business as The Speckled Duck.

The Speckled Duck comes from drawing a cursive S as a child, that my Nana taught me to make into a duck. In college it became a logo for a fictitious company, and then my own business logo.

Fast forward years later and I get to design lots of stationery as a work-at-home-mom. Sometime last year, something changed. The Speckled Duck brand has done so well for me, but I was reaching some limitations of the brand and I wanted to go farther. I needed something that was unmistakably paper. Without a doubt, The Speckled Duck became the Polkadot Paper Company.

I am so excited to share my passion for design and my love of paper and sending mail. My designs include lots of polkadots (imagine that!), hand-drawn illustrations, and patterns mixed in with some of my favorite typefaces. I'm looking forward to creating something fun for you!
