Getting a peek behind the scenes is always fascinating, right? Whether it's how something is made, how spaces are organized, what people do when they travel, or what someone's work routine is like, it's fun to see what day to day life is like through the perspective of others. If you've ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes here at Whimsicals Paperie, you are in luck! I'm here to give you a fun sneak peek:
The Illustration Process
All of our products begin with hand-drawn watercolor pencil illustrations. Watercolor pencils look just like standard colored pencils, but add a little wet brush once the color is down and it transforms before your eyes into watercolor.
Once the illustrations are created, they are then digitized and made ready to use in designing the products themselves. All of our products are designed in-house, and 90% of our products are printed and produced in-house in our Colorado studio! We also do all of our own packaging and fulfillment, so whatever you order from us comes straight from our hands to yours.
If you happen to live in Colorado or surrounding states, we also attend and sell at fun events like artisan markets and art fairs. We load our van full to the brim with products and displays so you can shop in person!
