The Stationery Studio began as a passion project and work of love for its entrepreneurial owner Renee Redman in 1994. At the time, the Chicago public relations executive and mother of two shifted gears to fulfill her dream of running her own in-home invitation and personalized gift company.
Now, all these years later, The Stationery Studio has gone online where it was "one of the first personalized stationery businesses in the country." It offers 17,000 personalized products with more than 10,000 unique visitors per day. That's a lot of people logging onto the site to get fancy paper. To get a better idea where it comes from and the people who are sending it out, here's a look at the local company's offices.
