Stationery Biz 100: Start Strong

$ 95.00

Create your own successful stationery business! In Stationery Business 100: Start Strong, I use instructional videos, interviews with industry insiders, resource lists and more to teach you all you need to know to get a head start in the world of paper goods.

Instructor Message

The stationery world is a very friendly place, but it can still be overwhelming when you just beginning. In this course, you’ll learn from my 14 years of combined experience with printing and the stationery industry to get a jump start to success!

We'll go over the details that no one seems to talk about -- "trade secrets" that I’ve worked years to figure out. We’ll talk about everything from learning how to make products that get noticed, to deciding how many products to make, to finding manufacturers. 

I won't be the only one you'll be learning from. You’ll also see video interviews with 11 more successful paper people: Anna Bond of Rifle Paper Co., Cat Seto of Ferme à Papier, Emily Blistein from Clementine Shop, Joan Schnee from On Paper & Green Paper Co., Sabrina & Eunice Moyle from Hello!Lucky, Megan Gonzalez from MaeMae Paperie, Carrie Gifford & Hal Mertz from Red Cap Cards, Erin Ozer from Knot & Bow, and Suzie McKig from Twig & Fig.

By taking this class, you’ll have the advantage I wish I could have had when I got my start in stationery. I’ve made so many mistakes and gone through a lot of painstaking trial and error to get to where I am today. Learn from me, and you’ll have a much smoother road to success.

I also have a Stationery Business 200: Wholesale class available here on atly.

Suggested Materials

This class is the RIGHT fit for you if:
