Located in Burlington Vermont, asher + arden is a design studio that creates stationery + gifts. The original designs are drawn and lettered by hand and created using traditional media such as pen + ink, pencil or watercolor. Owner, Donna Bepler, started the company with a mission to celebrate the powerful connection between people, animals and planet.
The greeting card line launched at the 2018 National Stationery Show and featured 100 original, illustrations of the dogs and cats that share our lives, many of which were rescued or adopted. Whenever possible, the story of the animal is shared on the back of the card and a percentage of each sale is donated to the Pawsitive Change Program , an innovative and progressive program that pairs incarcerated men and juveniles with rescued dogs for mutual rehabilitation.
"My muse and first dog Maggie, rescued me at the perfect time in my life and gave me far more than I can ever say. My love for her helped me to see animals as I had not before. We are focused on capturing the emotion of animals and their impact on our own wellness."
Today the company has over 200 original designs in multiple product categories that include dogs + cats, garden and farm. Gifts include, fine art prints, magnets, bookmarks and other sweet little gifts that are positive, uplifting with beautiful artwork and a touch of humor.
asher + arden products are designed, packaged and shipped in the USA. They specialize in wholesale and custom design for licensing collaborations.
