Colette Paperie was established by Keli Spanier in 2008. She was
working in a cubicle at a big corporation, devising an escape plan.
Little did she know that in a few years, her cards would be world-famous
and have a presence in over 400 stores. Greeting cards seemed an
obvious choice to her
because she describes herself as "one of those freakish people who keep
on-hand for when the situation arose to send it." What makes Colette
Paperie cards stand out is their unique voice that helps others express
themselves at life's milestones and tough times.
In her spare
time, Keli teaches calligraphy & hand lettering to anyone who is
willing to learn, and the rest of the time is devoted to her nerdy
husband and two stepdaughters.
Keli has been featured in numerous publications, including Etsy's "Quit Your Day Job" blog, Huffington Post, Design Milk, Soapbox Cincinnati, Cincy Chic, MSP Mag in Minneapolis, The National Stationery Show, The Paper Chronicles, and Stationery Trends Magazine. She's also hosted workshops at Altitude Summit.
