Leah Pellegrino, owner and lead designer, is a maker on a mission to make people laugh. Manor Paper Co. creates greeting cards, stickers, home décor, apparel and more. “Our goal is to bring people joy and make them laugh with one of our products,” Pellegrino explained. “If one of our products can make someone laugh and think of someone that would enjoy it, then we did our job.”

Although Manor Paper Co. will not be exhibiting at any upcoming shows, Pellegrino shared that the business is “still pretty small so right now we are trying to gain some love on social media to get new customers!”

Are you offering any products that offer a give-back opportunity to charitable organizations?

LP: During the black lives matter movement, we made a sticker to show our support and decided that for 3months we would donate 100% of the proceeds. In 3months we donated over $2,000 to color of change.

Has your business modified online services to better serve retailers in todayʼs challenging climate? If so, please explain.

LP: As of today we have our website where we are moving to have majority of our sales take place on!
