Hello there, I’m Kate Secondo, founder and lead designer of Sweet Cricket Design. My company has been creating fresh, fun social stationery since 2008, and I’m one of those lucky people who can truly say “I love my job!” Every morning, I have the pleasure of waking up to an email inbox full of adorable pictures of babies, families, and couples just waiting to be incorporated into one of my custom photo card designs. I can’t help but smile when I do my work – and I’m honored to play a small part in the life celebrations of my customers – whether designing a birth announcement, holiday photo card, save the date engagement card, or personalized invitation – it’s a joy to have a job that centers on the sweet stuff in life.
Sweet Cricket Design specializes in social stationery for all occasions. From cocktail party invitations to birth announcements, holiday photo cards to graduation announcements, and everything in between, you’ll love our designs. You can find Sweet Cricket online at one of our retail partners or if you are interested in a custom card design, please get in touch with us here.
Lots of people ask me how I came up with the name for my business. When my daughter, Mia was born, the two of us would take long walks everyday around Jamaica Pond and all throughout our neighborhood of Jamaica Plain, in Boston Massachusetts. Those walks were my thinking time, and I created my business plan and all of my ideas for my design venture during those walks. All the while, my sweet little girl would gaze at the world, taking in all the sounds and sights of the city from her stroller while rubbing her feet together like a little cricket. When it came time to name the business before our first official launch, it was a no brainer – Sweet Cricket – after my daughter, who has truly helped me realize that anything is possible.
