How We Got Here
I'm a graphic designer by training but after years of working corporate design jobs and on freelance design projects that seemed to constrain my artistic abilities, I was looking for an outlet. I had ideas that I wanted other people to experience with me so I began designing greeting cards and created Hen Pen Paper Co. in 2011.
“I fell in love with greeting cards. I think because a card is really just a condensed version of what we really want to say to one another. I find great joy in coming up with those special words and illustrations that will communicate exactly what a person wants to say". --Lara
Technology is a part of our every day lives. When we take a moment to put a pen to paper and write to someone, in that moment, there are no distractions. Focus is on that person we are writing. When that person receives your letter, it's a gift. Something to be saved and cherished always.
