Oh hey!

So, sometimes you start a business without realizing you were starting a business, and then things kind of explode and life gets crazy, and then you decide to start a family and realize you have depression and anxiety and your partner has ADHD and your creative energy has completely disappeared - we’ve been waffling with this decision for ages, but we’ve realized it’s finally time to close up shop. :(

We’ll be around until about the end of March, with various clearance sales, giveaways, mystery grab boxes, and flash sales on Instagram - stick with us until then for some great deals!

Thank you so much for your support over the years! The thing that has kept us going this long has been the connections we make with our customers - we started making cards near the end of 2013 because we couldn’t find any that sounded like us in stores, and it was really cool to see so many people relate.

Loads of love!! <3<3<3

About

Sea + Lake Paper Co.

We started this shop because it encompasses all the things we love to do - design, make, photograph, make people happy, and spend as much time as we can together and with our dog, Brodie.

We both have a background in photography and Alicia also has a background in graphic design. The idea for greeting cards came along when I was reminded by my grandmother that, as a child, if you ever lost me in a department store, you could pretty much guarantee I was on the floor in the greeting card section, reading every single card. Also, in the first year I knew Alicia, I sent her a card for pretty much every occasion. Birthday! Graduation! I Miss You! It's Tuesday! I'm Coming to Visit Soon, Get Excited! Etc, etc. So. I love cards. :)

We're control freaks, so every aspect of our creative process is done at home, where we can ensure quality. We work together to come up with concepts for cards, art prints, knitwear, and accessories, and then we each take care of different aspects of making - Alicia sketches, inks, scans, and finalizes designs in adobe illustrator, and then I colour match, print, score, fold, trim, and then we both package and organize cards and other paper goods. (I couldn't draw if my life depended on it.) We both knit in our 'downtime' (aka 'watching reruns of our favourite tv shows and brainstorming card ideas'), and every once in a while, I raid the local hardware store and salvage wood to build new stuff for our studio and home.

We hope you like the things, use the things, enjoy the things, wear the things, and then share the things.

Have an amazing day!

Christina & Alicia
