ATHENS, GA – May 5, 2009 – IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Paperlicious LLC (http://www.paperlicious.com) announced today that it has been voted as one of Startup Nation's 2009 Top 200 Leading Moms In Business competition (http://www.startupnation.com/leading-moms-2009). The competition, sponsored by VerticalResponse, recognizes the achievements of mothers across the country who run outstanding businesses, ranked according to public votes accumulated from January through March 2009.

Owned by Amy DeRouen Nelson, Paperlicious came in 34th out of 200 businesses and is the only full-service online stationer in the Top 50. Over 600,000 votes were cast among several thousand contestants.
“After five non-stop years of taking care of my infant twins and my other baby, Paperlicious, I am extremely proud to be honored with this award. With the help of my supportive husband, Troy, this business keeps growing beyond what I had ever imagined. I definitely think our top-notch customer service, combined with our affordabe prices, makes Paperlicious an appealing choice,” commented Nelson.

When she learned she was expecting twins, Nelson decided to leave her career as a publicist at Lava/Atlantic Records and start her own home-based business. In 2005, Paperlicious was conceived in New York City.
