Elevator Pitch:

Petrichorpaper is a small scale handmade paper mill that specializes in making hand-crafted paper and paper goods.

Tell us about your business, what inspired you to get into it, what you sell/service you offer, what makes your business stand out and how it impacts you, your community or the environment.

Founded in 2013, Petrichorpaper began with an impromptu purchase of a paper mill for sale in Arizona. It was all-inclusive and just what I had been hoping for. With all of the equipment at hand the mill is fully equipped to share studio space with others in the community to create an open-source environment for the paper arts as well as tackling invasive species in an eco-friendly manner.

How would you use the FedEx Small Business Grant money to make a significant impact on your business?

This year I decided to take my small-business to the next level but leaving my full-time job to run the paper mill full-time. This grant will help me grow in a more professional manner by affording me a way to market my products in the way that I envision. I will be able to afford more packaging options as well as experiment with different product lines that I haven't been able to attempt due to time/costs.
