The Sagebrushed Story
Sagebrushed is a line of hand-drawn and digitally brushed greeting cards created by me, Maggie Sage Shaffer, in my hometown of Tampa, Florida. Each sentiment is inspired by my relationships with friends and family, and every image reflects my love for simplicity, nature and nostalgia.
My mom is a watercolor painter, and instilled in me a great love and appreciation for art and the creative process. As I was entering my freshman year at the University of Florida, I had to select a major. I chose Chemical Engineering mostly because my dad was an engineer. I quickly discovered that it was not for me and switched my major to Nursing, because my mom had a degree in Nursing. I was clueless about what I really wanted to do. Luckily my suite mate in the dorm was taking the 9 credit Intro to Art course called WARP, and after wishing I was doing her assignments instead of studying chemistry for months, I realized that I, too, wanted to major in Art and switched my major for the final time.
I graduated with a BFA in Graphic Design in 2004 and returned to Tampa to start my first job in advertising. After a couple jobs and a few years, I began to freelance full-time. My affinity for paper began when I designed a wedding invitation for a friend. I fell head over heels in love with snail mail and designing paper products. For years I was very happy doing branding design for awesome clients and the occasional custom wedding invitation job, but I had a longing to create a line of greeting cards, a product I could not only have the final say on creatively, but something I could sell. In 2015, I took the first steps toward realizing this dream and began designing the line. Sagebrushed launched in January of 2017. I look forward to growing the line and adding new products!
