As a working mother of two boys, Hampton Paper Designs was created on a whim. In April of 2007 I was shopping for calling cards for my newborn son, Jackson. I was looking for a perfect balance of style and simplicity with images that were classic. When I was unable to find what I was looking for, I called upon a close family friend and talented artist, Lucy Borge.For years, Lucy has sent my oldest son, Thomas, hand painted watercolor cards for holidays including Valentine’s Day, Halloween and Easter. I knew right away that these timeless images were exactly were exactly what I was hoping to find.I called Lucy and asked her to paint a few more images. I developed a few prototypes and shared them with her on Memorial Day Weekend in 2007 in the Hamptons.
Our business approach is simple ~ an unforgettable image on a crisp white background offered on all the products in our stationery line. After all, when you find an image that you love, don’t you want it on everything?
Since then we have added over 350 new images to the line and many new products. We have been featuerd in numberous magazines including Hamptons, People Stylewatch, OK! Magazine and many more. In August 2012 we were featured on The Today Show by Jill Martin.
