About JJ Paperie & Co
Hiii! My Name Is Johana, most people call me Jo - I'm so happy you’re here! I’m the owner of JJ Paperie & Co, a stationery brand and calligraphy and engraving studio. Yes, I do all three!
With no formal art background, I took a leap of faith in starting JJ Paperie & Co in January 2020.
With a calligraphy nib in hand and teaching in-person calligraphy workshops, JJ Paperie & Co quickly expanded into products once COVID-19 hit. Like many small businesses, the pandemic led to adjusting quickly and in my case, learning adobe illustrator to bring my lettering and florals to life and learning to engrave to elevate my calligraphy offerings.
While it may have been a setback then, it led me to sit down and focus on my skills and growing brand.
In time, I launched my growing stationery line that includes greeting cards, wrapping paper, notepads and more! My playful paper goods can be found in stores across the U.S! My goal is to bring home items in Fall/Winter 2021!
Why I Started JJ Paperie & Co
JJ Paperie & Co began after 7 years in the corporate world and a strong desire to truly call something my own. I knew I wanted to create a business that would allow me to have a true work-life balance and the choice to choose creative projects I wanted to work on.
While I learned almost everything along the way, I continue to hone in on my skills while also encouraging non-creatives (or so they think!) to tap into their inner creative side. Even if you feel like you don't have an ounce of creativity in you, it's my goal to motivate you to try!
JJ Paperie & Co products + paper goods serve to uplift, encourage and excite you to create your own day! Whether it's with a fun notepad, colorful phone case, or cute seasonal tea towel, my goal is to always create those feel good vibes & genuine happiness.
What I Value
JJ Paperie & Co values creating eco-friendly greeting cards, sourcing locally and eliminating plastic when possible. I strive to create an all inclusive brand that is friendly, approachable and motivational. Every piece or product from JJ Paperie & Co is intended to bring make you HAPPY!
Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you find many things you love here!
