Folded Funny: Unique Comedy Voice Scattering More Joy

Chicago, Illinois | 3,247 Sales

Announcement    With my own handwriting and the beautiful smile of Bandit, my Boston Terrier, I created Sidesandwich Paper Co. on my 30th birthday, Nov 1st, 2015, by opening my Etsy shop. I had always wanted to make greeting cards; the way you can brighten someone's day with your own words and unique handwriting, creating a tangible keepsake, it always stayed with me from childhood. With the love & support of Bandit and Tootalltom inspiring LOVE and GRATITUDE cards left and right, Sidesandwich was born.

Our goal is to encourage others to be themselves, give more love & thanks and scatter more joy in the universe. I create, print and handfold each card in my home studio. I found that making something with my hands, using recycled materials, incorporating dance & music - is all helping me battle my anxiety and depression (more prevelant after the passing of B in 2017 to eye cancer). Art is a wonderful healer and I look forward to days in my studio to create. Each order is made with love and sent with hopes that my simple paper vessel will go forth and create even more joy to those you love.

I want to also encourage girls to be excited about space, science, love, friendships, maybe starting a business of their own. I want to support education, keep handwriting alive and help others share their unique voice. Let's help each other talk about mental health and remove the stigma around it. Sometimes the right words are hard to say, maybe one of my awkward cards can help bridge the gap and open the lines of communication.

Thank you for checking us out and supporting small business. Be safe, be kind and scatter more joy in the world <3

Things are off center, uneven, often pixelated to feel ALIVE. I use recycled card stock so there are imperfections on the paper as well- we just gotta roll with it

Tonight's Top News Story: Chicago Artist & Adorable Boston Terrier Make Hand Lettered Greeting Cards!

Fun fact: my cards are often imperfect, off-centered, pixelated, or so I say, alive and breathing - like life. Reach out and share yo feelings, I only provide the enthusiastic and encouraging vessel, your words are what MAKES it 🤓 👩🏼‍🔬

I am a comedy writer in Chicago that loves to laugh, dance freely to any punk rock available and hang out with my dog, Bandit. I always wanted to have a greeting card line because from an early age, I loved how special they can be. I might have every one that my mom ever gave me. She always underlined JUST the right words and added in the most beautiful messages. I wanted to continue on that path and encourage people to send more mail, send more love to the world, and let their feelings out.
I work on this part time out of a studio in my own place and look forward to the day that this can be my full time job---my intent is so simply make more people smile with each card and let those smiles ripple into the universe.

Thank you for checking out our shop! Follow Bandit and his adventures on IG at @sidesandwich or Twitter @BanditChicago
