Designs by Val is a happy little stationery and design company based in beautiful Vancouver, Canada. Our cards are modern, with a bit of whimsy, and plenty of joy. Each design often starts as a simple sketch or cluster of words, and after much thought to the design process, a new card is added to the collection.

Early on in life, owner & designer Valerie Lau soon discovered something she had as much love for as chocolate: arts & crafts. This soon developed into a passion for creating paper goods. When not designing, she can be found at a local eatery, walking around the park, trying to get past page 50 of a novel, or just living what she loves.

We hope that our cards are a way to help connect people with each other, whether it's sending a loved one a little note, or expressing thanks to a special friend.
