What is effiespaper? effie’s paper is an online stationery company founded by lifestyle guru and noted author, Kalyn Johnson Chandler. Kalyn is the creative force behind effie’s paper. Although she’d be lost without her iPhone, iPad, and MacBook Pro, Kalyn sends hand-written notes to friends and loved-ones on a weekly basis. “I’m as big a fan of email and IM’ing as the next Swarovski covered iPhone-toting hipster . . . But, truth be told, I’m a paper girl. Call me old-fashioned, but there’s something about opening my mailbox and finding a handwritten note, thank you or otherwise, that trumps an email or text message any day of the week!” says Kalyn.
Stationery is a part of Kalyn’s DNA, not only was it a childhood obsession – her grandmother and company namesake, Mrs. Effie Hayes, who worked at Michigan’s Mitchell’s Greeting Card Company many years ago, was the one who introduced Kalyn to the notion of having her own personal stash of stationery for just about any occasion. effie’s paper offers a line of fine stationery that will satisfy the needs of today’s busy professional, mom or social butterfly; it’s created for those who enjoy sending and receiving beautifully-designed, hand-written notes.
Growing up, Kalyn corresponded with friends who lived all over the country. She spent hours in her favorite stationery store, Lee’s Specialty paring pretty papers with textured envelopes, colorful stickers and finding coordinating stamps. And now, effie’s paper allows us to share Kalyn’s love of stationery with others and bring back the lost art of letter writing!
