I’m Sandra Picco, graphic designer, native Jersey girl, obsessive puppy mama and creator of pretty paper things.
I have always loved art. It’s been with me for as long as I can remember. As a kid, I would sketch and doodle for hours and burned through boxes of chalk drawing on the driveway. When a high school art teacher introduced me to typography and logo design, there was no turning back…I was hooked! I earned my degree in graphic design and after working for many years in the corporate world, found myself itching for a new creative outlet. I discovered a passion for invitations and paper goods and now design for some of the best stationery brands in the biz. My work has been a part of a lot of happy celebrations over the years and has been featured in some pretty cool places around the web.
Being in the world of paper for several years, I’ve dreamed of a stock image library for showing off my stationery, invitations and paper goods. I grew tired of searching for images that were simply styled, “un-fussy” and neutral enough to work with my brand and let my design be the star. So I grabbed my camera and started creating the images I wanted to see. Then I realized many of my designer friends had the same dream and just like that, a new business was born! In addition to The Stationery Stock Shop, my hope is that my blog will provide inspiration, tips and valuable resources for my stationery designer friends.
