When Monica designed her wedding invitation nearly ten years ago she never thought it would turn into a full-time business. Awakening a love of making paper goods, she created a baby announcement for a friend, then her other friend wanted one too but in pink. Soon after that, Monica designed a birth announcement for a complete stranger, and Fig & Tulip was born. Working from her converted-attic studio, this graphic designing mama-of-two combines freehand drawing with computer illustration to finetune her whimsical motifs. Every product is printed by humans in the San Francisco Bay Area and a part of sales goes to local schools and nonprofits making this one community-focused company.
