We are seriously crazy about PaperQueen, the “stylish online stationary boutique” brewed up by talented West Vancouverite, Annabel Mackay St. John.
“Lives can leave us,” Annabel writes on the PaperQueen website, “and we really do need to tell those we love that we love them and those that we miss that they are missed. I always knew that my business needed a tag line but could never come up with one until recently. I was trying to make it sound so important or hip when really it was staring at me right in the face all along. Write, receive, respond, remember. It’s that simple.”
It’s also that gorgeous. Gorgeous enough, in fact, that this Canadian company has been making ripples with Neiman Marcus, People Magazine, LouLou, Elle and many, many others.
Most recently, I was thrilled when Annabel created my likeness for the upcoming Party With Your Pooch fundraiser poster. It’s possible, though, to visit the PaperQueen website and get instant gratification for your meaningful note. Just a few clicks and you’ll be using PaperQueen’s creations to bring your own visions to life. There’s a reason that PaperQueen Fine Stationary and Design was named the 2011 winner of the Business of the Year by the West Vancouver Chamber of Commerce.
You go, Annabel! And we go, also… even more stylishly than we might have done.
