Saturday Spotlight- Amanda at Paper Doll Stationery

*Name: Amanda P.

*Where are you from: Born and raised in Louisville, KY

*What do specialize in: & where did you get your idea?: Personalized stationery, invitations and announcements. I started making stationery gifts for friends and family and it slowly became a paying business!

*Name & URL of store: Paper Doll Stationery http://www.paperdollstationery.com/

*Where did the name come from: I chose the name because I thought it was cute and catchy! I also played with lots of paper dolls as a child.

*How did you get started ?: I built my web site because I started to get lots of customers from around the USA and people would ask if I had a catalog, which I don't. I also started getting lots of appointments with people coming in and out of the house. The web site enabled me to share all of my products with customers everywhere and made it a lot easier on everyone to browse the designs from the comfort of their own home, on their own time.

*What do you want customers to know about you and/or your product: My stationery is all hand done: I print, design, cut, fold, tie bows, stamp, package, etc. all myself. I do lots of custom work too. I want my customers to be thrilled with their personalized product and I am willing to happily work with them to get exactly what they want! I also love packaging! Sometimes, even the smallest gift is more meaningful in a package that says "WOW!" I love the cute factor of ribbons, tissue, and a great label.

*Anything else interesting you'd like to share with us? Unfortunately, (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it!) I have lots of addictions: sweets, especially dark chocolate, black coffee, scrapbooking, ribbon, embellishment and paper hording, shoes, especially flip flops, and bags. I love the color and simplicity of Vera Bradley, Brighton, and Studio Calico.

Oh where to begin! My favorite cards are little fill in the blank thank you with footballs at the top of them. I don't think they are actually on the site, but Amanda made them for me so my sons can fill in the blanks after birthdays/Christmas! There are way too many things on Amanda site that I love! ;) Love her work, always top notch!
