Featured Artist Interview Hillary Rose of Paperoni Press Greeting Cards
Hillary Rose founded Paperoni Press in 2009 and has been designing stylish stationery ever since. She has many different styles, from her custom woodsy wedding invites, stationery and invites with vintage imagery, custom address labels, hand drawn kitchen cabinets and origami greeting cards. Before founding IndieMade, I was in the stationery business for many years and I love seeing such wonderful imagery on stationery products. I still have a passion for paper!
