Tickled Pink!

March 01, 2011

We are delighted that you’ve stopped by to visit us here at effie’s paper. In fact, we’re tickled pink! effie’s paper is the brainchild of lifestyle guru and noted author, Kalyn Johnson Chandler; she’s the founder and creative force behind our paperie.  But don’t be fooled, no company can run smoothly without lots of hands on deck!

While effie’s paper is Kalyn’s brainchild, we are an organization of like-minded individuals who love aesthetics, design and beautiful paper products.

Our company namesake, Mrs. Effie Hayes, Kalyn’s maternal grandmother, believed in hand-written notes and having a stash of personal stationery appropriate for just about any occasion. Much to the chagrin of Kalyn’s husband (Manhattan storage issues), she was the dutiful granddaughter who obliged.  Now, we’re bringing our love of stationery and fine paper products to you.

We’re just tickled that you’ve decided to join us on this journey. Pull up a chair, sit back and stay tuned for the beautifully designed notecards and whatnot that we have in store for you!

p.s. We know that our namesake would have been just tickled about effie’s paper!
