About Flakes Paperie
Flakes Paperie is a stationery design company that creates finely crafted everyday greetings with a sweet and simple mix of the witty, the lovely and the nostalgic.
Owner and designer Ashley Coulson began Flakes Paperie in 2006, connecting her love of stationery and illustration with the skills she acquired as a printmaking major when completing her Fine Art degree. Original designs are sketched by Ashley, pen-to-paper illustrations are then embellished with a dash of type before the final design is lovingly screen-printed by hand in the FP studio. Each colour layer is printed separately using water-based inks resulting in bold colours with a velvety smooth texture.
Studio Assistant Holly Higgins officially joined the FP team in the fall of 2014. With her eye for detail, top notch organizational skills and penchant for 80s power ballads, she fit right in. Holly works alongside Ashley in the studio several days a week with a focus on product packaging, wholesale order fulfillment and printed branding.
All Flakes Paperie products are hand-crafted in Cambridge, Ontario Canada where Ashley resides with her husband Cory, daughter Lucy and the feline Head of Quality Control, Mister Pimms.
