A bit more about the creator of Evergreen Decor Co

Welcome! So glad you stopped by today. I’m Angela, the founder and designer behind Evergreen Decor Co. 

Since I was a child I have always found creating therapeutic. The process of constructing art, or combining words in a way to convey deeper emotions or thoughts has always been a natural inclination of mine.  I was the child in school with doodles and hand-lettering all along the sides of my schoolwork.  I also didn't realize till I got older that not everyone studies signs, posters, basically anything with letters on it so as to study the typography, or try to air draw letters if paper and pen weren't nearby. I still catch myself doing this in my adult years:)

I also discovered as a child that creating with words and sending someone a card I made was a way I could better express myself than just speaking, while also connecting more deeply with them. I learned this best from my Mother who was notorious for sending encouraging hand-written cards to people she cared for, and even those she didn't know well but felt could use a kind human gesture. Without realizing it I started doing similar by creating and writing cards, notes, or art to pass along to others too (Ironically, my Mom used to tell me as a child that I should have a card business someday, which funnily enough I fell into doing without realizing it. Mom's usually end up always being right don't they?).

Through the years of watching my Mom pass along notes to others and doing so myself, I came to realize that sharing words on paper for someone to display or treasure in a keepsake box is a small but powerful gesture that stays with someone for years.  I observed this up close from my own Mother again as she battled years of chronic health issues but always kept a stack of cards near her bedside so she could send them out to let people know she was thinking of them.  After my Mom passed away, I heard from numerous people how her cards through the years were incredibly meaningful to them, and many had still saved the cards she sent them.  It struck me that sometimes the smallest gestures are sometimes the most powerful and have the most potential to impact others long after we're gone.

This is what drives me to create today, to give you paper goods of high-quality that speak your heart, so those you care about can treasure your words for years to come.  To achieve providing you with classic long-lasting products I use some of the world's finest archival paper for prints, and between 100-130lb luxurious linen or cotton paper for cards. I want you to feel ecstatic to gift your paper good to someone you love, (or even to yourself) and know that these words of inspiration given through a card or an art print will positively impact someone's days.

I love serving each one of you who pops by.  It's such an honor to hear your stories, and why a product with particular words or a phrase means so much to you or someone you care about.  I don't take it lightly that you entrust me to provide you with something heartfelt to give your loved ones or yourself.  My hope is that the words on these paper goods will be a gift that leaves a lasting impression on your loved ones for years to come and gives them something to touch, read, and look back at, just like my Mom's cards have done for many.
