20 Questions With Shannon Kennedy from The Paper Cub Co.

The Paper Cub Co. is a line of modern greetings and paper goods, screenprinted in the USA. After being inspired to expand her greeting card collection under sister brand sass&peril, owner and designer Shannon Kennedy decided to launch a new line where she could offer a wider assortment of greetings and paper accessories. Thus, The Paper Cub Co. was born. Far from average, each card is screenprinted and bears a beautiful texture that you can see and feel. A little design sophistication mixed with fun is what we aim for, and we hope you’ll enjoy our cards as much as we love making them!
