Getting to Know: Stephanie Sterjovski

I’m altering the Getting to Know features a little bit to pack in more photographs. I felt like maybe you weren’t getting to see enough of the featured bloggers, so here you go!

I stumbled across Stephanie Sterjovski‘s work on Instagram of all places and felt the need to delve a bit deeper into her story. What I found was a mountain of creativity (I was so inspired by it and hope it inspires you too). In fact, you’ve probably seen some of her work before from her print shop aptly named SS Print Shop. Inside you will find witty and gorgeous prints including a black and white series (one pictured above) and a wedding series (pictured below). I was super lucky that Steph took some time out of her busy schedule to answer some of my burning questions!

1. It’s evident in your prints that you’re a typography lover! How long have you been interested in type and fonts? 

I have always been attracted to a
good font, it probably started when I was a little girl and would judge a book
by its cover. If it wasn’t pretty I would skip right by it, haha. I have always
loved branding and it’s what has pulled me in to many of my consumer decisions.

2. You’ve also started your own photography business – how do you juggle your two creative businesses so successfully?

I don’t bite off more than I can chew! School, the print
shop and my blog has been my main focus, and photography has been a weekend
hobby. Being based in Toronto has its upside (or downside I suppose), because
photography slows down here in the winter, which gives me more time to work on
my other projects. I make sure to never fill up my calendar to the point where
I am extremely overwhelmed (a little overwhelmed is okay though! I love staying

3. Your creativity seems to flow into every aspect of your life – where do you go for inspiration?

I’d say it comes from not sitting on the couch! I like to
get out and do things, see people, and immerse myself in the world around me. I
love being at home don’t get me wrong, but am most inspired when I am out and
about, or travelling. I have so many areas of interest, and they really play off
each other to leave a well-rounded impression on me.

4. What has been the most exciting moment of your entrepreneurial journey so far?

The most exciting entrepreneurial journey so far has to be
my print shop. I opened it wanting to share my heart, in hopes to have a little
piece of me in people’s homes and it has grown in ways I had only dreamed of. I
feel truly blessed for my little shop. 

5. Do you have an important lesson that you’ve learned along that way that you’d want to share with other creatives?

I guess the most important to date is to just do what you
love, do it with the best intentions and people will notice. I find that a lot
of people are concerned with gaining popularity, traffic etc. more than they
are concerned with the craft they are doing and how they treat people.

I’m currently trying to decide which print I’m going to add to wall, but want like every single one, haha.  How great are they?!

Find more on Steph on her BLOG, PRINT SHOP, FACEBOOK and TWITTER.

Special thanks to Stephanie for the images and her candid and sincere answers! Definitely something to be said about her answer to number 5!!
