Any other stationery lovers out there?!
I certainly am and have been since I was a little girl. I still have so many writing sets and pens and I adore beautiful lettering, cards & prints.
I was really excited to find Rebecca's beautiful business!
Friday Feels Paper is a boutique design studio specialising in bohemian and shabby chic style printables, all of which are stunning.

Tell us a little bit about yourself
Hello! I'm Rebecca the designer and creator of Friday Feels Paper boutique design studio. My studio is based in the beautiful & wild Wairarapa countryside where I live with my husband and young (very) energetic son. After living abroad for many years we decided it was time to come home as we thought this was the best place for us to raise a family.
I've always been a creative person & my love of stationery started when I was a child. My mum & grandmother would give me these pretty stationery/writing sets for my birthdays & Christmas. My focus at school was always in the arts & I ended up studying design at the prestigious School of Design in Wellington. Over the years I’ve worked as a graphic designer in Wellington, London & Sydney and now I'm super excited to use this experience to grow my own creative business.
Tell us a little bit about Friday Feels Paper
Do you ever get those Friday Feels? That feeling when the weekend is just around the corner and it’s time to let down your hair and party?. That’s the idea behind Friday Feels Paper. Creating fun wedding and event stationery & decor is what I love to do here at Friday Feels Paper.
My designs reflect my love of bohemian, whimsical, rustic and vintage styles. I have a range of printable stationery, signs & wall art on Etsy and I offer a bespoke/custom design service for people who wish to have a one of a kind creation for their wedding or special milestone.
I started out designing as a creative outlet when I was home with my baby boy. Over time I realised that this could be a part time job and I needed something with flexible hours.
I had another shop on Etsy where I sold art prints but found that printable files were becoming very popular as there is no waiting. You can instantly download your files and print them. This way you can be much more accessible to a worldwide market.
What is your favourite part of running your own business?
I really love helping people create their dream stationery designs. The creative process is time consuming with custom work but nothing beats the feeling at the end when it all comes together and the client is happy. I also love that Friday Feels Paper enables me to be super creative and design the work that I love.
What is your favourite product that you design?
Oh there are so many favourites but if I had to choose it'd be wedding invitation suites. It's fun bringing the design elements into all the different pieces; save the dates, invites, details card, RSVP, menu, program etc. and coming up with a matching full suite is very exciting!
What is one thing you do daily to make your business work?
I always put my lovely customers first. What ever request or question they have I always make sure I respond asap no matter what time of day or night it is. Also I drink coffee. Lots of coffee.
Where to from here with your business?
I'm super excited to be launching my online shop and blog soon, and I plan to build my range of products including more special themed party invites. I have so many ideas in the works I can't wait to share them with you!
