What a crazy long day! Time to kick back with a mug cake and some ice cream (somehow my ice cream has a unicorn horn!?!) unicorn_face

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!
