Hi! Welcome to the Hammond ink Paper blog. I'm Sara Hammond, the owner/creator here. So glad you have found your way here. I want to take a few moments to introduce myself. Let's start at the beginning. It was a warm day in November when I was born... just kidding. I think we should jump forward a few years.
I married my high school sweetheart and right away we started moving around. We lived in Oklahoma City, Northern Virginia and Greensboro, NC before finally settling down outside of Atlanta, GA. After college, I never imagined myself as a business owner. The thought never even crossed my mind. I started teaching dance in college and continued to teach for 9 years. Once baby girl number one came along, I cut back on teaching dance to stay at home. After about 6 months or so I knew I needed to find something for myself as a creative outlet. My dad was the one who introduced me to ETSY. After buying a new printer and listing personalized stationery on ETSY, my shop was born.
Hammond ink Paper is a color loving, monogram swooning, pretty paper stationery boutique. Planning, jotting down notes and sending snail mail should be done in style and with a sense fun behind each task. The Hammond ink Paper collection is built on colorful design, fun details, and organizational tools. And, as always, Hammond ink is meant to be enjoyed!
