Tiramisu Paperie is a destination for those wanting a curated mix of paper goods that reflect their personal sense of humor and was founded by Lisa Sarmento in Nashville, Tennessee in the Spring of 2014. In 2012 she lost her mother and grandmother, the two women who raised her. Cards poured in telling her how sorry people were and that “God didn’t give you what you couldn’t handle”. She was over it! She wanted someone to tell her “to hell with cancer”, “you should be pissed”, “punch someone” or even “yell at the mailman for no reason”. She needed a lift in spirits and didn’t see any cards that did that.
Because of this loss, Lisa became humbled and realized time is precious and those you care about need honest, raw cards. Your friends and family love you because you are that way-direct, bold, funny, awkward and honest- so why not give them a card like that to lift their spirits? Makes sense right.
Tiramisu Paperie was developed for those raw moments and to lift those who are just having a crappy day. In Italian, Tiramisu means “a little pick me up” which is exactly what her brand is about. Someone will smile they receive one of their products and then tell you, that is exactly what they needed.
