HEY, I'M CHANDLER!
The journey to start Joy Paper Co. started when I went on (what was supposed to be) a quick errand, but ended up spending almost an hour looking through just about every card there was for a friend's birthday. If it was cute, there was a good chance that it was 7 bucks. But what if I just want a stylish card that doesn't break the bank? Oh and don't even get me started on finding a card that I liked on the outside AND the inside...
Long story short, I caved and bought the $7 card. BUT I went home and got to thinking - there had to be a better solution.
The outcome? Joy Paper Co. High quality cards and paper goods that help you get (and give) more for your money. No more hours of searching for a good enough card or giving up on cards altogether. Let me help you become that thoughtful friend you've always wanted to be through paper goods that give back at an affordable price.
How do we give back?
This year we are donating a portion of proceeds to NAMI (the National Alliance on Mental Illness) to support their efforts to "build better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness". But I didn't want to just stop there. I'm also very passionate about supporting my fellow US based businesses that provide good working conditions as well as being a good steward of what we have been given on this earth by using recycled materials wherever possible!
Wondering why I choose to support mental health with a portion of the proceeds? Personally I have had many encounters with mental health issues amongst family, friends and even myself at times, just like you probably have as well. I realized that mental health is something that is a part of every person's life, whether good or bad. It's a topic that I'm tired of tip toeing around and want to create an open community that works towards ending the stigma. Living with intention and letting the people in your life know that you care, whether it be through writing a card, giving them a call / text, or whatever showing up for them looks like for you, is the heartbeat and mission behind Joy Paper Co.
Welcome, I'm so glad you're here! Thank you so much for taking the time to visit. I’m thrilled we’re connected and excited for the journey ahead.
