The Name | Salt + Paperie
We wanted something that really encompassed our lifestyle & our spirit. We are definitely beach people—we love the sea, the sand, and the salt. Salt preserves things—like invitations preserve a special moment in your life. Salt is left after you have a good sweat—we are definitely not afraid of hard work. We believe in ‘the Salt of the earth’—we can do nothing without Jesus! And, we are definitely salt-on-our-margaritas kind of people! We are all about the salt. Now the paperie part: paperie (pronounced paper-”e”) is the English derived word from the French word papeterie, which means “packaged fancy stationery.” Those things combined are perfectly Salt + Paperie.
The Owner | Jacki Gil
Jacki was born and raised in North Alabama, specifically, a small mountain town called Grant. From a young age, she loved to draw and create with paper. In the fifth grade, her mom told her she should enter a hand-writing contest because of her impeccable fifth grade cursive. As an eight-year-old, she avidly scrapbooked pictures of her Beanie Babies and practiced her bubble letters. Her love of paper & hand-lettering never died even into her college years. The kitchen table was often covered in crafts and pictures instead of pizza and beer. Graduating from the University of Alabama with a degree in Advertising & a minor in Studio Art was the beginning of a lifetime journey with design & paper. Although, interested in the quips of the advertising world, Jacki quickly found out she was not cut out for the knock-you-down-to-get-to-the-top, big design firm work life. Huntsville, Alabama is home now, and although being in the creative industry in a left-brained town isn't easy, she wouldn't have it any other way. She's in love with all things design + paper, and always on a quest for the next best font. It's a beautiful thing when a passion and a career come together.
Jacki lives in a small house in the middle of town, with lots of character & surrounding characters. She's the wife to an amazing husband, supporter, paper puncher & number cruncher, Rudy. He goes to work every day so that Jacki can continue to live her dream of owning her own business. They have two daughters, Gemma + Pippa, that keep them very busy! Their favorite things in life are Rosie's Cantina, the beach & house projects.
