April May Headshot 2016 | Smudge Ink


Some of you may have already noticed my name on recent posts I've written for the blog. Well, that's because we have big news here over at Smudge Ink. After 14 amazing years of business, Kate and Deb handpicked me to become Smudge Ink's new owner, passing on the proverbial torch. They’re confident that I can add something special to Smudge Ink, and we are all really excited about the next chapter!

I EAT, SLEEP, AND BREATHE PAPER. Forever a lover of connecting with people via snail mail, I originally joined the Smudge Ink team in 2010; I managed the studio, got orders out the door, and adored being surrounded by paper goods all day, every day. I truly enjoyed working with customers and learning about the stationery industry. In 2013, I put my business knowledge to the test as I focused on growing my own stationery line, Everything Little Miss

STAY TUNED FOR FRESH DESIGNS. I look forward to bringing you even more great greeting cards and gifts that you’ve come to expect from us. We'll be debuting lots of new cards at The National Stationery Show in a just a couple of weeks! We hope you'll continue to read about our adventures here on our blog. To see more paper goodness, check us out over on Instagram!
