Joe Akers – Richmond, Send Cards not Selfies

Joe Akers - Paper Freckles

Joe Akers grew up in Richmond, moved away after high school and came back as a chef within the last few years. His wife was doing some StationEry design & printing on the side. Joe honed his skills in graphic design and when the school he was working with lost their catering contract it came at the right time for Joe to jump ‘whole hog’ into PaperFreckles. You can check them out on Instagram at @PaperFreckles or you can shop their stuff in a handful of stores in Richmond, 150 others across the country or online at
