Small Business Spotlight: The Happy Frog in East Bridgewater

We’re starting a new series of posts that will appear through out the year, in between our event blogs. We’ll be showcasing local small businesses that we love. It’s not advertising, and no money changes hands,  just informative blogs posts to let others know about some really great small businesses.

Our first showcased business is The Happy Frog Copy Center in East Bridgewater.

We happened upon the Happy Frog one day when we were looking for something a little different, slightly unique but not too expensive. We needed something to help us “stand out” at wedding and bridal shows. We stopped in at The Happy Frog, unannounced, and met the owner and “top frog”, Rose-Marie Culp. We sat down in her side room and brainstormed. You need to understand that we did not yet know Rose-Marie is whiz kid with imagination. We told her what ideas were in our head, and she made them real. She helped us design a professional invitation to hand out to couples at shows that would “wow” anyone and everyone.

The idea of blogging about great local small businesses came to me when Rose-Marie told me about their newly done over Invitation Room. Realizing that wedding invitations were quickly becoming a paramount part of her business, she decided to completely re-do her consultation area. What came about was a warm and alluring space to let the creative juices flow and overflow.

Welcome! Come in and sit and let's creative something sui generis!

Rose-Marie and her team have albums of standard invitations, but custom design is their speciality. Her design for our invitation is what is drew us in and kept us coming back. Have a look.

The Happy Frog isn’t just about weddings, nor are they just about invitations. They are a full service copy center, providing such services as high speed copying, full color and business printing, graphic design services, faxing, laminating, shipping and more. They are truly a small business success story, having opened their doors in 2001 with just two copy machines. They now boast 5 copy machines and employ three “tadpoles” to keep up with their ever-growing presence.
