PAPER BY JLEE: STEP THREE

Entrepreneur, Design, Paper by JLee: StepsJennifer WhisenhuntComment

We've made it to step three! At this point (as we discussed in step two) I had a few designs from previous projects I could edit and turn into stationery. Next I had to figure out how to make the physical stationery. The three largest issues I had to solve were the the type of paper I should use, how to print the stationery, and how to ship it. This post will be dedicated to these three questions.

An old friend recently asked me to create a custom painting based on a John Donne poem, "A Valediction: Forbidding Mourning." In this post I'll walk you through the inspiration I drew from the poem to create the final image I painted and I'll show you how, through many draft paintings, I moved from an idea in my head to a final painting.

Step two in the Paper by JLee process: At this point in the start up process I (with my mom and sister) had an idea and general concept about what I wanted to sell. The next step was figuring out what that looked like in terms of design. As I mentioned in my step one post, I already had a few designs from past projects that I could edit and use as stationery.
