Inspired by the Beach

Here at Sweet Paper we have been soaking up the west coast’s warm weather, so we are dedicating today’s blog post to all things beachy! For all of you east coasters, hopefully this post encourages you to take a vacation and make your way over to the sunshine.

From teal wedding invitations to the sunny surf art print, we truly have captured the San Diego sun here in the store!

VI Star Saturday

Orange_and_Park_Art_Prints

Welcome to VI Star Saturday! A new series on the blog where we’ll be sharing some of the fab items we have in store at our new spot in VI Star. What? You didn’t know we have a new location in Little Italy? Check out the details here.

Julie and I have been having a lot of fun selecting art prints for the shop. We hope you love all our picks as much as we do (if I had the wall space, they would all be hanging in my home!). The collection above by Orange and Park just arrived this week! Drawn in by the bold graphics, we love that these prints pay homage to our local beaches and surf spots. Orange and Park art prints are screenprinted using eco-friendly water-based inks on recycled paper and come in a variety of colors.

Brainstorm_Art_Prints

The Science Collection above by Brainstorm not only decorates your space with modern graphics and bright colors, but they also educate! Briana Feola and Jason Snyder design and screenprint Brainstorm’s art prints in their Dover, New Hampshire studio.
