Forget Sunday Funday, it’s Maker Monday!!!
Welcome back to Maker Monday’s! We decided to take little hiatus over the summer but we’re back baby! In case you’ve never tuned in, on Monday’s we feature a different maker in a dedicated blog post & on our social media feeds. We carry so many incredible brands in the store and want to make sure the world knows about them! Today, we’d like to introduce you to Linden Paper Co. The GORGEOUS greeting cards you’ve probably been eyeing up at the shop. They’ve got you covered from Birthdays, babies, to sympathy & just because; you’re sure to find the perfect card.
“Hello! I’m Jori Pop, the artist behind the works here at Linden Paper Co. I’m an illustrator and designer based in Port Moody, British Columbia. I come from a background in fine arts specializing in pattern design, book covers, children’s books and editorial work. However when I started selling a few art prints and greeting cards at craft fairs and markets around Vancouver, I received such a great response, which inspired me to launch Linden Paper Co. in April 2019.”
WHAT’S IN A NAME?
The name Linden Paper Co. comes from my maiden name, van der Linde, which describes in Dutch a family that lives near a Linden tree—a leafy tree sacred in many parts of Europe. Fun fact, I thought of the name almost 2 years before I was able to fully launch the company! At that time I had just met the man who would eventually become my husband, and future accountant, Chris Pop. Once we got married we launched Linden Paper Co. with a varied selection of greeting cards, notepads, weekly planner pads, art prints, and pocket notebooks. It’s been such a busy start to the business, but I feel so blessed with the amount of creative freedom I have to put into products, as well as the wonderful support of my community and local shops.
In lives that feel increasingly fast-paced, we believe in the power of the hand-written message: the gift of time given when one of us sits down and puts pen to paper. To remember a birthday, celebrate an engagement or tell a friend we are thinking of them allows us the opportunity to take a breath, acknowledge and share life’s moments with the ones we love.
At Linden Paper Co. we are passionate about designing high-quality stationery products that allow you to find pleasure in any task. We believe in the power of gratitude and the freedom of the human spirit when any one of us chooses to celebrate life in all its wild, unpredictable goodness.
You can find Linden Paper Co. here on our website: Linden Paper Co.
