Our team has changed a lot over the years (as all teams do). I'm working on a series of blog posts featuring some of these great folks as guest writers, so I figured it was about time for a refresher on who makes up our A+, #1, best team ever.

-

Brooke is our in house letterpress printer and the head of our production department. She has been with C&Co since 2014. She is a printmaker, an Aries, and a mental health therapist who is passionate about ink, paper, and people.  She grew up in the woods of Indiana, and has since lived all over the place, including several islands in ME and WA, Brooklyn, Appalachia, Western MA, France, and Seattle.  Her favorite things are cookies, wood type, badminton (without rules), and young adult fiction.

Chelsa is our wholesale manager! She has been with C&Co since 2014. Originally from California, she loves Seattle and living in Bothell with her handsome husband, but she does sometimes miss the warm weather and sun. Chelsa loves working in the shop and chatting about our products... or about her adorable teacup Persian cat, Roberta. Be sure to say hello! She may even show you a picture. 

-

Brie is our scoring and packaging whiz, and is often found working in the shop on the weekends. They have been with C&Co since 2017. They are currently finishing up their degree in printmaking from Whitman College. Brie spends a lot of time working on linoleum carvings and setting up their own little printing space at home. Brie also loves soccer, cooking, cross-stitching, and refilling bird feeders.

-

Sara is the owner of Constellation & Co. She writes and designs our cards, places orders for the brick & mortar shop, and wears a million other hats, too. She is a wife, mom, fountain pen enthusiast, and soccer fan. She loves lighthouses, daffodils, taking walks near boats, and she drinks coffee like she's getting paid for it.

-

Suzi is our bookkeeper. She's also Sara's mom and our kiddo's Grammy! She and her husband Chuck grew their own small business from the ground up when they were in their 20s, so she came to us knowing how important having a solid bookkeeping system was. She's also a whiz with  payroll and payroll tax, sales tax, business tax, and income tax. The new skills she has acquired since then all have to do with tech and computer stuff. "You can teach an old dog new tricks, it just might take a while!" (Her words, not mine!)

Lara helps out in the shop from time to time and is an occasional guest blogger. Outside the shop she’s a full-time wife and mommy, part-time student, and an avid letter writer and stationery lover. In her spare time she can often be found playing with wax seals, digging in the garden, baking delicious goodies, or supporting the Seattle Sounders and Mariners.
