Label Circus is an online boutique offering a curated selection of personalized stickers and unique stationery. Sisters, Luisa and Blanca Prado, chose the name because their collection is composed of a variety of acts and characters. Their purpose is to provide unique stationery for kids and moms that is thoughtfully designed and follow current trends and styles.
With a graphic design degree and the dream of bringing their creations to the public, they opened their first stationery boutique in 1995. The shop focused on customized wedding invitations and carried a variety of stationery products including their own line of hand crafted and letterpressed invitations, which was produced entirely in-house. This experience taught them not only the ins and outs of the stationery market and product design but how to take their business to the next level.
Fast forward 2 decades, and after moving from their home country and becoming moms of four beautiful children, Luisa and Blanca decided to start a new journey and focus on kids stationery. That is when Label Circus was born.
Luisa Prado, Creative Director
Luisa is truly a Ringmaster, juggling not only the multiple creative projects and
individuals who work on the Label Circus line but her life as a business owner, wife, and mom to 3 boys. Luisa uses her eye for color and detail to develop fresh, innovative stationery collections. Her vision and imagination allow her to see all sorts of possibilities in otherwise ordinary items. Luisa’s many interests include playing tennis, reading cookbooks, and trying out new recipes. She loves traveling (Paris is always a favorite) and has been known to plan a complete trip to just about anywhere in the world in 10 minutes flat.
Blanca Prado, Art Director
Every great act needs a Director to make sure the performance goes off without a hitch. Blanca draws upon her years of design experience to make sure all of the artwork in the Label Circus collection looks amazing. She started out at a young age, creating a complete line of patterned dresses for her Barbie dolls. She loves the shift towards artwork with a quirky, hand-drawn quality and doesn't have a favorite color hue, as she believes that every color will get its 5 minutes of fame at some point. When not designing, Blanca enjoys spending time with her daughter and hubby, traveling and discovering little shops filled with wonderful local treasures in each of her trips. She is also a self proclaimed foodie that would try anything---as long as someone else cooks it for her!
