Chelsea Shukov and the smart beginnings at Sugar Paper

I had so much FUN talking to Chelsea Shukov in this interview! She is one half of the team from Sugar Paper.  Chelsea Shukov and Jamie Grobecker started creating custom letter set press stationery in 2003 and  have grown Sugar Paper into the “it” brand in stationery! They have a terrific story. As beautiful and smart and all their products are, it is backed up with some seriously hard work. This tenacious duo has poured their heart into their business and it shows. Whether you are struggling with a start up or hiring employees, you are going to love this interview.  It will inspire you. Listen in as Chelsea talks about the slow and steady growth of  Sugar Paper. Sometimes we only see women when they are featured in the press (LA Times) and do fabulous collaborations (J Crew) so I loved her candid description of the beginning phases of their company!
