My name is Rachael! Hazel + Dolly is where I incorporate my lettering, drawings, and watercolor painting into custom work and fun stationery for you! Hazel and Dolly are my grandmothers, and my goal with my business is to blend the crafts of their time like written correspondence, beautiful handwriting, and letterpress printing with modern calligraphy and design. 

I'm passionate about the environment, and although I work with paper products, I try to use local, recycled, and sustainably sourced products. My primary source of paper for my work is French Paper Company--a Michigan-based, 100% hydro-powered, independent paper manufacturer, and I get my letterpress plates made at Owosso Graphics, a plate manufacturer in Michigan. 

Although I'm a born & raised yooper, I'm based in the metro Detroit area.
