Hannah Cady of Old Soul Designs in Spokane, WA, started her business on a whim when she realized that she had an affinity for calligraphy and hand lettering while she worked at a coffee shop/retail store. Designing the menu boards and signage throughout the store, Hannah began practicing her designs on her own time, and decided to start her own business doing everything from wedding invitations to logo design. Hannah firmly believes that her business, Old Soul Designs, has made her infinitely more brave than she ever used to be, as she’s forced to put herself out there in ways she never imagined.
As small business owners, we at Inland Northwest Trading Co. can appreciate the sense of self-doubt that Hannah so eloquently explores in her website’s blog posts: even if we’re successful, we can all feel like imposters sometimes. That’s why it’s incredibly important that we support regionally owned small businesses like Old Soul Designs — to remind makers that their craft is important to and appreciated by the people who live in their region. We are excited to feature greeting cards from Old Soul Designs in our July, 2020 subscription boxes!
