About

Something a little different...

My name is Katie and I am the owner of Ivorymint, a design company producing greetings cards and luxury stationery. Our cards are an eclectic mix of typography, strong graphic imagery and hand drawn elements. I like to keep my finger on the pulse when it comes to new trends and love to learn new techniques and skills to create funky, contemporary cards.

Ivorymint started two years ago as an idea I had whilst travelling around SE Asia, I had previously designed a wedding stationery set for a family friend (to help me save money for my travels) and really loved the process. Something about working with a client to create beautiful stationery that is going to be part of their most special day is really quite exhilarating! So, when we arrived back in UK work started in earnest.

Ivorymints first HQ was the kitchen table in my Mums flat in Hampshire, I was designing wedding stationery and working on my website. I hadn't even thought about joining Etsy at this stage, that came later. Come September, the business had moved into a little metal shepherds hut in the middle South-West Wales (how we got to Wales is another story!) I loved that hut! It had wooden floors, a tiny little wood fire and a gorgeous view. With Christmas around the corner I decided to design a few Christmas cards to put on Etsy in the hope that I would sell one or two. I had no idea how well my cards were going to sell or how busy I was about to get!

September was slow, a card sold here or there, but to be honest that was all I was expecting - I was happy and excited to be selling ANYTHING on such a big platform with so much competition. October came and something happened; my cards were appearing on the top of the first page in most of the searches and they were selling! First it was one card a day, then four, then it was packs of twenty and more!

With Christmas going so well I decided to switch my focus from weddings to greetings cards. The rest is history (as they say); I now work full time on my business and it has its very own grown-up office in the beautiful Cardiff Bay. I'll soon be employing my very first employee (scary AND exciting!) and we will be attending our 3rd trade show next year. The company currently supplies around 60 small boutique shops around the UK (and Dubai and Australia!).

I love working for myself in a job where there is no limit to my creativity - you can be so versatile with cards, there is no end to the what you can come up with. Isn't it amazing how a piece of folded card can bring enjoyment and happiness to others, whilst providing me with a living I love!

If you are considering opening an Etsy shop just go for it! You never know what may come of it :)
