Behind the scenes at The Penny Paper Co. is a crew of amazing, crazy talented, funny, awesome and unique individuals. There's me (hi!) but also a long list of other people that make sure products get out to you the way they do. There's my husband, Aubrey (who has a full time gig of his own, but he's always helping me out!) There's Oscar - even though he's only 9, he's a wiz at social media ideas, contests, new products, and helping put stickers on boxes going out to customers and retail stores. We have Julie on our team that if you're a wholesale client you may have talked to, and a crew of awesome manufacturers that we adore, and who always help us create the coolest products on the market.

We pride ourselves on the relationships that we maintain with stores, suppliers, and our customers. We believe in kindness, a good dose of belly laughter, fart jokes (I mean, we do have a 9 year old) and love.
