betsyannpaper is taking a short break

Note from shop owner Dear friends,

We’re taking a break from the stationery gig.

The short story is: the pandemic has made everything difficult.

The long story is: we’re not doing in-person events (which we miss so much!) That would be fine, hopefully 🤞they’ll be restarting soon, but then a pretty major (and expensive) piece of our equipment broke. We’re having some continued issues with our web domain, so I’m not consistently getting email. And then we found out our wholesale supplier (who provides almost all of our supplies!) has been doing other small businesses dirty.

All put together, this feels like a sign- or at least a convenient time to pause and take a break, recalibrate, and figure out what’s next.

We’re going to miss it, but the things I’ll miss most are connecting with such a supportive community of other makers and building relationships with other folks who love buying handmade.

We’ll be back! Eventually, I’ll figure out how.

-Liz

Little Liz Would Be Proud.

I've been drawing greeting cards since I was a girl, dropping notes in mom's purse before darting off to school, or making handmade valentines for classmates. But, everyone knows art doesn't make for a career. So older and presumably more mature, I determined to go to college and follow more realistic pursuits.

I soon found that those realistic pursuits often involve gray cubicles, stale break-room coffee, and sensible shoes. Just as I began to feel frustrated without a creative outlet, I also began to notice just how saccharine, sentimental, over-designed and overwrought store-bought greeting cards had become.

Desperate for a chance to create, and eager to provide folks with simple, minimalist greetings, I opened the Betsy Ann Paper shop in 2009 as a part-time hobby. Four years and one swift career-change later, Betsy Ann Paper has developed a loyal following, on Etsy as well as in local shops.

Hello there! Thanks for visiting!

Betsy Ann Paper is the joint effort of husband and wife duo Liz and Josh Moorhead. Well, sort of. She paints, he pours the coffee. Each design is carefully created, painted by hand, and then replicated on each card to produce greetings that are simple and unique, both classic and modern. Only the highest quality card stock, watercolor paper, paints, inks and envelopes are used.
