My name is Susie & my company is SooBoo Designs. It all began with a birthday card for a professor at college. He was so delighted with the lettering on his card that he deemed this to be my calling. After almost 30 years, I now believe he was right! I have been making cards for as long as I can remember. My Dad owned several high-end card and gift shops in downtown Chicago. There I was able to sell them to Dad, who in turn, put them on the racks to sell to the public. They would sell faster than I could make them! As the years went on, I took on jobs in the art field, enabling me to keep abreast of new trends.
Passion for Paper
Recently, I was fortunate enough to be able to learn the art of computer graphics. This was my opportunity to incorporate what I call “name art” with computer fonts. It’s a wonderful new world for me, and I welcome you to share my passion for personalized paper products and hand-drawn cards. My goal is to give my customers unique and fun artwork made into personalized paper products promptly with great customer service.
You may be wondering where the name SooBoo orginated? My Aunt, “Chipper”, lovingly gave me that nickname when I was a child. I liked SooBoo enough to name my company after it! A native of the Chicago suburbs, I have relocated to a small, relaxing rural area just south of Raleigh, North Carolina. I share my life with my ever-inspiring husband, Jeff, fantastically optimistic son, Dean, a real hoot of a step-son, Tanner.
