Avis Wampler's Profile

About

::HELLO::

My name is Avis and am the creative force behind Avie Designs. With a degree in graphic design from The University of Tennessee, I set out into the real world only to realize that it wasn't all it was cracked up to be.

::HOW IT STARTED::

I quit my day job a few years ago and started concentrating on Avie Designs full time and have never ever looked back.

::HOBBIES::

In my spare time I like to work on Avie Designs. Really, it is my true passion and my hobby as well as my day job. But I also love to travel to new lands with my family. We love to experience different cultures and taste different food. Oh yeah and cooking and eating.

::THE WORK::

It is important for me to create something everyday that I can be proud to send out into the world. I truly love to make things and have since I was a child. I view my work today as no different than the books I used to make on the floor of my room after everyone else in my family had gone to bed.

I am in love with paper and the way that colors and designs lay upon it. The quality and integrity of my design and products is the most important thing to me. I strive day and night to create the best possible product.

Laser cutting became my specialty after creating my own wedding invitations. I wanted to send out something that I had never seen before so I hand cut tissue paper invitations in the Papel Picado style. (Papel Picado means cut paper in spanish) From there a friend from college put me together with a mutual acquaintance that had a laser cutter. And the rest, as they say, is history. We now have for 20 laser cut designs and mostly sell wedding and bar/bat mitzvah suites.

::MY CUSTOMERS::

You are the only reason I am here and I feel so lucky to have such a supportive group of fans. My ultimate goal every day is to bring a smile to my customers' faces.

::AVIE::

Avie has been my nickname that only close friends and family have been allowed to call me, but I am now opening it up for everyone.
