Tell us about your business.

Too many ideas started to collect in Rux's sketchbook when she finally decide to follow her artistic passion. With the help of her savvy business partner Cas, Lush Prints was launched in the fall of 2011. Neither one could have imagine the popularity of their designs. To date Lush Prints has been featured on sites such as FAB, Design*Sponge, Oh So Beautiful Paper, and more. The philosophy will always remain the same: designed in California, responsibly made in USA. Rux & Cas recognize the importance of investing in small business. As Lush Prints grows they both plan to invest in fellow entrepreneurs that share the same philosophy and principles.

What makes your business stand out?

We don't believe that we simply make stamps. In fact, we believe that we create beautiful tools for those who still believe that sending out a hand-written note is not "a thing of the past". We believe beautiful design is simple.

What's the best business advice you've received?

Seasons in business are completely different from the seasons in nature. There is no way of predicting how the business will do from month to month, so be prepared and believe in what you are doing.
