Q&A with Madison - Owner of Echo Park Paper

Who is Echo Park and how long have you been acting on the Crafting Stage?
Echo Park Paper has been in business for two years (it's actually our anniversary this week). Echo Park Paper was founded by three friends who, with 20 years of combined experience in the industry, wanted to start a company that gave the store innovative and beautiful products. Echo Park Paper focuses on open stock paper, stickers, collection kits with add-ons such as 6" X 6" paper pads, Chipboard Accents, Layered Chipboard, and Assorted Brads. Watch for additional items later this year!

Please share with us a brief synopsis of the Echo Park story and don’t forget to tell us anything that sets you apart.
What sets Echo Park Paper apart is the personal relationship we share with our consumers and stores. We truly value those who use and sell our products. (For more information, see our "About Us" section of the website.)

As owner, what part of your job gives you the most joy?
The freedom to expand on ideas, work with the stores on an individual basis to provide quality products, and see our products in use by the consumers we care about.

Where do you think the papercraft industry is heading and what major trends do you see developing for 2012?
The paper crafting industry is here to stay! People will always love working with their hands, being creative, and sharing their hobbies with others. This creative outlet is never going to go away. Without giving away any secrets, Echo Park Paper is always developing new and innovative products.

How do you use Social Media to keep your audience clapping?
Give away STUFF!! We love the personal interaction we have with our consumers. We make the effort to interact and engage with every member on our Facebook page. We have a good time and obviously love what we do.

Thank-you so much Madison - Echo Park have made an amazing impact on the industry in the short time they have been around - and we can't wait to see what the future has in store!

  2. Hi Teryl, I love how you have the bigger pic with the two smaller pics to the side of it, i'm totally going to "borrow" that idea! :) Congrats :DDD

  3. Oh my goodness! I have been so busy the last few weeks that I haven't been checking the blog. I got home from work today to find a delivery from Artful Crafts and I thought - wow that's strange, I don't recall ordering anything from them. I opened the package and found some lovely EP product. I came to the blog and found that I had WON! Thank you so much - this is such a treat!
