I am Tyeast Quick the Founder and SheEO of The Brown Girl Paper Company. During the pandemic, as many others, it was a time to take a deep look at my life. I realized it was time to truly go after the dreams that God had placed in my heart. I worked on myself and my confidence and started moving towards my dreams and goals like never before. After focusing on growing my faith and working on improving my mindset, The Brown Girl Paper Company was born! As a longtime lover of quality stationery, the lack of representation always resonated with me. So I sought to change what I felt was missing in the industry. By adding more voices and choices to the world of stationery.I created my website and started offering products online and in-person December 2020. The company’s purpose is to honor the uniqueness of our culture through quality personalized stationery, greeting cards, wrapping paper and more. I want to ensure that when Black people walk down stationery aisles they see themselves represented.
At The Brown Girl Paper Company, we create stationery products through the lens of the Black experience by acknowledging the uniqueness of our identities, the humor that’s embedded into our culture, and the complexities of our history.
We want to make sure that when you walk down the stationery aisle, Black people see themselves represented.
As a former classroom teacher, I noticed that many students were somewhat apathetic about their futures. However, when I mentioned that I was planning to start my own business, they would light up, get excited, and ask me a million questions about my entrepreneurial endeavors. My goal is to help young people, especially young Black teens, discover their passions and chase after them relentlessly.
At The Brown Girl Paper Company, we like to say we offer “stationery for the culture.” Our products provide fun modern options for Black consumers and all consumers interested in honoring their diverse friend groups, colleagues, and family members with products from a brand that values diversity and representation.
