s.e.hagarman brings glamour to the stationery industry…with her swanky yet simplistic signature style. Hagarman is a self-taught artist with a true passion for design. From a very early age, she has been detailed oriented, fascinated with fashion, architecture, monochromatic color palettes, and bold classic patterns. She gives her designs a vintage yet modern edge and always tries to think outside the box when designing her new releases each year. Her designs are all hand-illustrated for their stationery, cards, and growing gift line. Hagarman has always been an artist, an inherited talent from her Grandmother.
With the encouragement of her very supportive husband, Patrick, s.e.hagarman started in 2009 and has grown quite rapidly. Their designs are known around the world for being hand-embellished with crystals, delicate paper flower appliqués, beautifully embossed paper, and a light dusting of glitter, which the talented staff at s.e.hagarman meticulously adorns to their cards and growing gift line.
They are in over 2,000 retailers: fine stationery stores, high-end gift boutiques, department stores, small gift shops, and online retailers nationally and internationally. A few well-known companies that they sell to include: Wegmans, Wynn Las Vegas, The Biltmore Estates, The Ritz Carlton, The Hotel Hershey, Bashas, GLOBUS, Clintons, ITOYA, Art Print Japan, The Montage Motels, and Paper Source.
s.e.hagarman clearly has a distinct fashion-forward quality brand that sets their designs apart in the stationery industry, which they will continue doing. They are now in their second building since starting in 2009. In April of 2016, s.e.hagarman and Patrick bought and renovated a church, turning it into a wonderful manufacturing facility/office/workspace for the s.e.hagarman staff to fulfill orders.
Throughout their business journey, Hagarman attributes her success to staying true to herself. "I took my self-taught knowledge and God given talent and turned it into a business." Her mantra for both business and life that she shares with others, "if anyone has a true passion, dream big, think positively, follow your heart, and don't let anything stop you."
