Many of our loyal customers and fans are often curious as to where Pergamino calls home and we are proud to say that we are located in the most fabulous city in the nation: Chicago. As a young but ever-expanding business, we have grown from our original roots in a Chicago home-office to a new spacious studio in the beautiful River North neighborhood.
Luxurious would not particularly describe our office, however we see it as fabulous. As a converted warehouse building with an old-fashioned elevator and an antique, steep staircase, we see our unique location absolutely one-of-kind. On a typical day - or night because work never sleeps as an entrepreneur - you will find Monica, founder and creator of Pergamino, seated in a giant black chair, hidden behind the giant mac monitor positioned on her modern-chic desk. A giant mirror leaning against the adjacent wall opens up the space and generously gives light. You may also be distracted from the stapling and construction noises of our neighbors - for the high ceilings neglect to keep the sound from the next studio from reaching our office. But nothing that a little house music can’t buffer…Needless to say, the office of Pergamino has character!
Well, we may be exaggerating for Pergamino is not officially diagnosed with obsessive compulsive disorder - but we are obsessed with the philosophy of mear perfection. That is, we always try to keep our office environment in the up most clean, organized, and positive of standards. Our expanding inventory of cards are strategically organized in large green boxes to allow for easy accessibility when fulfilling our increasing demanding orders. A mossy green color-scheme throughout the office compliments the royal purple tones of our products, which generates an optimistic and cheery attitude. After all, if the office is happy, the business is too.
And was it only a few weeks ago that our very own President Obama chose to dine with Oprah Winfrey to celebrate his 49th birthday at Graham Elliot? If only we would’ve known in advanced, we would’ve stuck around the office to get a sneak peak ourselves..
