In 2007 Stephanie our founding partner had a vision. She was tired of the corporate world, didn't feel that she was meant to sit in an office behind a desk all day. She wanted to be creative, work with people to design beautiful things and bring joy not only to those around her but also to her own life.
The dream started as a full service marketing and graphic design company. Creating Marketing programs and websites for small businesses who didn't have the time, know-how, or want to do it on their own. While building this business, working full-time at her Marketing Manager job to pay the bills, and doing "favours" for friends, On Deck Design morphed into something closer to what is is now.
Wedding, birthday and event invitations started as something she did for friends and family here and there. It wasn't until 2013 when she was sourcing her own invitations, and eventually creating them herself that she determined that not only could this be lucrative, but it allowed the outlet she was looking for to create something for those events that were beautiful, and creative and that made people happy when they received them.
Alas, the invitation and stationery wing of On Deck Design was born. In July of 2017, we changed the name to Bluebell Paper & Press to better showcase our offerings and the rest is history.
