Tell us more about you and what inspired you to start your business!
It is so nice to be featured on Poi&Hun to tell you a little bit about myself and my business.
My name is Grace, another paper lover at GraciEdits. I am originally from South Korea, born and raised in Seoul until I was 17. Just like many of you, I’ve always had my love for stationery items growing up. My mother used to tell me (and still does) how much I enjoyed going to the local stationery shop and spend all my allowances on buying empty planner covers, pens, and stickers. I believe I was about 5 or 6, back then I was too young to even know the actual purpose of the planner; I just liked collecting stickers and trading cute inserts with my friends (Yes, I never wrote anything in it.) Now, I know the importance of the planner, and my life would’ve been a mess without it especially with my current schedule.
I am currently working at a hospital full time and in school part-time. I started to utilize my planner more to balance my life better with the time I have. I’ve searched something like: ‘better ways to organize your life' online, and that’s when I found out that there’s a group of people sharing stationery goods and inspirations on Instagram. I quickly made my personal page @graciedits__ at the end of December 2020, to share my planner and the account grew to where I started DIYing some dividers and stickers of my own. Then one random day, I just decided to turn my hobby into a profession and combine the two things I love: stationery + creating a website (I used to be a freelance web developer/designer). I still think this was one of the best decisions I’ve made so far and will always be thankful for other paper/planner lovers. Without their support and love, I wouldn’t have made it this far. So, THANK YOU! xx
Where did the name of your business come from?
There is no interesting story behind the name of my business. What once was my personal planning account @graciedits__, then turned into my business account. The name GraciEdits kind of stuck with me from when I used to blog back in 2012 as I had a lifestyle blog where I talked about absolutely everything and anything I loved. In the very beginning, I honestly wanted to name my personal planning account along the lines of ‘gracieplans’ but, you know, it was already taken!
What makes you unique + different from other shops?
Prior to opening my shop, I couldn’t find a shop that carries custom dividers with a variety of materials and designs. I wanted to give my customers choices to choose from and I think that makes my shop a little different from other shops.
What planner are you currently using?
My current planner duo: LV desk agenda (for work/school) and LV monogram MM (EDC / everything else)
What is your favorite product in your shop?
My personal favorite is the Order Tracking Sticky Note Printable since I made it to track my VDS planner order!
What is a must-have on your desk?
iPad Pro! I either doodle, watch something or use it as my side screen when I am working.
