I'm one of those old fashioned people who still sends hand-written thank you notes. As such, I'm a sucker for creative stationary and paper goods, and was simply giddy when I came across today's featured shop. Designs by Tenisha offers graphic design services for unique notecards and invitations, as well as prints, bookmarks, and - my favorite - fun and nostalgic "cootie catchers"! And did I mention that all of these wonderful creations are super affordable!?

TP: I studied graphic design in college and once I enrolled in my first typography class I instantly fell in love and realized this was the creative path for me. Then after looking into what type of graphic design field I wanted to get into I thought what better then starting up my own business! Around that time, a friend of mine introduced me to Etsy and I’ve been a member ever since.

CM: When and how did you start working with paper? Did someone teach you?
TP: I actually started making my own cards earlier this year, but I’ve always worked on the computer, especially in college. From those classes, I was able to figure out how to set up documents so they would print correctly on different types of paper. One thing I was taught in a graphic design class that has become really useful is knowing the different types of paper and their weights. It’s definitely helped me decide what kind of paper I want to print my products on.
