6.25 Paper Studio is a locally owned stationery company based in Grand Rapids, Michigan. As a small business, we strive to promote and support the local community while working towards a healthier planet. In 2008 I (owner, Abbey Fowler) left my job as Art Directer at a publishing company and started Syd Design, concentrating on custom wedding stationery. After three years of hard work and growth, we have re-branded and expanded into a small retail space downtown Grand Rapids, MI (Shops @ MoDiv – 40 Monroe Center) and started a greeting card wholesale side of the business. Weddings is still our specialty, and all-things-paper is our passion. (hours: Mon-Sat 11am-6pm, currently till 8pm on Tues & Thurs)
