an inspiring company to keep your eye on: under the stairs paper co.

If you don’t know me on a personal level, you probably don’t know that I have lived in quite a few places. One city I was proud to call home for 5 years is Toronto, Canada. During my time in Toronto, I made many lasting friendships and worked with many inspiring individuals.

One of those individuals is Julia Mace, a complete ray of sunshine. Julia has the best sense of humor and many other wonderful qualities that make her someone I could never forget about! Julia is inspiring to me because she has recently started up her own business, fulfilling a dream she has had for quite a few years. Not only is she inspiring for fulfilling this dream but also for creating a business that is so true to her talents.


Under the Stairs Paper Co. was started in 2015 and is growing every day. Julia and her business partner Diane create one of a kind, handcrafted cards that reflect their personalities perfectly; full of joy and laughter. Their business motto is to share their joy through their handcrafted cards, one card at a time. Some of their best selling cards to date are below.

Under the Stairs Paper Co. not only has pre-made cards (singular and in bulk) available for you to purchase through their Etsy site but also will customize a card to your liking. Currently they run their business mainly through Etsy but you can also find them at Toronto boutique Coal Minors Daughter. They are also coming soon to Toronto and Ottawa boutique Victoire and soon to be open The General located in Prince Edward County. If you are interested in working with the duo to create a customized card, simply direct your messages to: Under the Stairs on their Etsy page.

    I am inspired by my three children. Becoming a self-supporting adult is a tough transition in our current economy. Each one of them is faced with professional career challenges despite all of them being university graduates. Yet they all soldier on, taking the challenges in stride and all with their eyes on a future they are taking charge of in their on ways. They have all created a home life filled with love and support, they have solid friends who support them and of course extended families who love them unconditionally. Best of all they are each others “besties”. Simply put, they are damn good kids and truly amazing people! I am truly inspired and can’t wait to see what the future brings for these three inspiring young adults…
