In 2014, after 15 years in the invitation industry as the founder of Invitation Consultants, Inc., I decided to branch out and offer wholesale products to hundreds of amazing retailers across the country who identify with fun and vibrant designs, and so Matrick and Eve was born. Matrick and Eve products were found in home décor, stationery, kitchen, museum, clothing and book stores throughout the US and Canada. Our designs were also seen at Target, Sur La Table, Paper Source and Hallmark stores.
Invitation Consultants, our parent company at the time, was best known for being one of the first to enter the online invitation industry in 1999. Our web presence brought us noteworthy recognition in national print, online and television media. In 2017, we sold Invitation Consultants to another fabulous company in the industry.
Matrick and Eve has never been afraid to take a concept, twist and turn it. We refined our creative process through sketches, style boards, and responding to the market's needs (we also liked to set some trends along the way). However, in December of 2017 we closed Matrick and Eve to focus on a move across the country, new endeavors and lots of adventure. Fast forward to the spring of 2020, we knew it was time to return to the industry we love so much and call home, the paper industry.
And a question, I am often asked: Where did the name Matrick and Eve name came from? It came easily as it is a combination of my three children's names and they inspire me every day! I am excited to be back!
