Catching up with Gina Peterson, 40 Under 40 Class of 2017

Gina Peterson was one of the winners selected for our inaugural Gift + Stationery 40 Under 40 Awards. As owner and graphic designer for Ginger P. Designs, she has enjoyed designing her own wedding invitations and growing her stationery company. What started out as an Etsy shop, Gina P. Designs grew quickly into a brick-and-mortar business offering a wholesale stationery line.

Since winning the award, Peterson has been quite active. Take a look at how winning the award has impacted her and what her goals are for the future.

Since receiving the Gift + Stationery 40 Under 40 Award, what amazing new adventures have you undertaken?

Since receiving the Gift + Stationery 40 Under 40 Award we have really been doing well at Ginger P. Designs! 


How has receiving the Gift + Stationery 40 Under 40 Award positively impacted you, personally and professionally?

When you have your own business and are working for yourself, it is an honor to be recognized within your industry. Personally, it has given me confidence and I even have it proudly displayed on my self-description in my “About Me” on our website 🙂 

Where do you see yourself in five years?

Is it weird that in five years I hope I am still working and designing for Ginger P. Designs because I love it?
