Right now it looks like a bomb went off with Christmas Orders, and extra product stacked up and an overflowing wrapping station. But typically, it’s very simple. White on white on white. (My favourite color) A really simple, clean palette is the inspiration for my product line and it helps to work in a space that embodies that!
I’m Kayley and I live in Calgary, Canada where I began Wrinkle & Crease in February of 2015. I knew I always wanted my own business, I just didn’t know my first one would be stationery! But the seeds of this idea came while I was nearing the end of my maternity leave with my favorite little human, Avalyn. I wanted more time at home with her and something about having a little girl who looks up to me every moment for what I’ll say, what I’ll do, and for how I choose to live gave me the courage to start making things happen. I am a paper nerd, any of my friends could tell you that I live from 77 lists at a time and you can’t count the number of cards, letters and notes I’ve saved over the years.
In a day where we live off our phones and computers, I wanted to create simple and beautiful paper products that would encourage a revival of the heartfelt, handwritten note – the kind of note you want to save, tuck away, frame and look at over and over again and the kind of products that would inspire you to sit, to plan, to dream on paper and then go make things happen.
The last year has been incredible, learning absolutely everything about this business from scratch including how to even use design software, how to talk a elementary level in a foreign language of tech talk, print talk and design talk since I came from absolutely no background in design. I feel so fortunate for the support I’ve had this past year to be able to do something I love and see people use the products that I design to share messages and thoughts and heartfelt notes with others.
