About Hennel Paper Co.
Hi, I'm Jayme Hennel! I own Hennel Paper Co., a hand illustrated paper goods and design studio focused on creating cheery & cheeky greeting cards and gift products that are assured to brighten your day.
Though officially founded in 2012, HPC is something that started with a sketchbook and crayons when I was a child. The process has evolved over the years, but my sketchbook is still my happy place.
I have been drawing and creating art for as long as I can remember. Growing up I was inspired most by my grandmother. She was so encouraging. Whenever I showed her a new drawing she would rave about each one as if I had created a masterpiece. I knew, even back then, that not everything was the masterpiece that she made it out to be, but those wonderful words gave me the confidence that I needed at an early age. As I grew older it was those fond memories of her that pushed me to get a BFA in Graphic Design and start this crazy, wonderful journey.
Incorporating my love for drawing with my design experience, I founded this company with a business model built on the rule of following my heart and the belief that time spent, should be done so pursuing happiness. All of our products start as a pencil drawing in my sketchbook and each one is a piece of my heart. We are proud to produce all of our products on recycled materials in beautiful Charlotte, North Carolina.

"This card is absolutely perfect! Not only did I receive the card within two days of purchase, the card itself comes in a hard protective package. Making it impossible to be damaged in the mail. Once you open the package the card itself is protected by a clear sleeve. I highly recommend using this shop for all your card needs. It is very obvious that the shop owner cares so much about her craft. Will deff be using these cards for every life event. Plus the cards are so beautiful. Exactly as described. Thanks! :D"
