3 Bees Paperie
Reena Vadehra & Jaee Likhite
Tell us about your business.3 Bees Paperie was started by two friends in 2009 who saw that there was a lack of modern and high quality wedding stationery available for South Asian couples in the United States. The idea, then, was to combine South Asian aesthetics with the Western appreciation for high-end paper. The result is a unique and fresh alternative for wedding stationery for both South Asian and non-South Asian brides and grooms. Of course, we branched out to baby, personal, and holiday stationery as well. We also wanted to make sure our products were as green as possible and sourced out eco-friendly papers and printers. For our next phase in our business, we would like to expand our personal stationery lines and offer more ready-to-order items for diverse audiences.
What makes your business stand out?3 Bees Paperie is inspired by South Asian design and is also committed to eco-friendly products.
