Melissa was an absolute doll to work with. She was precise, prompt, and created something truly special for me to gift my husband for our anniversary. It shipped super fast and was also packaged extremely well. Highly recommend!!

About

Happily Ever After

Hi there! So happy you stopped by :)

I opened my shop in 2009 in hopes to share my creations with the world. I started out designing small stationary items, but since planning my wedding in May of 2012 I found a great love for event design and decor. Now I offer event and wedding paper goods as well as my original graphic and handmade items. I adore everything vintage as well as clean design, and that clearly shows through my work. I like to think I have a modern approach to design with a mix of vintage flair and touch of whimsy.

My dream is for my work to be a part of people's lives. Whether it be giving a loved one a card I created or showcasing my wedding and event decor for your special day. Putting smiles on people's faces is worth all my time and hard work. I stress customer service 100% and make sure you are happy with the items and enjoy the process. All I want is to be a part of your happily ever after.

EXPERIENCE
Art and design is my life. I have a BFA in Graphic Design and 7 years of art studies under my belt. Since graduation in 2006, I have been professionally freelancing in the field as well as writing and editing on the side, so I bring over a decade of experience to the table when working with you on an order. I am very easy to communicate and work with and look forward to meeting you!

TESTIMONIALS + LOVE
Feel free to read what other couples and clients have said about working with me: http://www.graystardesign.com/testimonials.html

PRINTING PROCESS + MATERIALS
I have a special handpicked amount of printers I use for my items and most use earthy friendly processes and materials. There are times when I print in the studio as well. All my invitations, save the dates, and wedding suites are printed on 130lb archival paper that is acid free, elemental chlorine free, and made of 30% recycled content. I only use high quality paper stock so the design really shines.

These are the paper weights used for my items:
- 80lb. to 130lb. for wedding decor items and cards
- 130lb for save the dates, invites + wedding suites
* I also offer many other options, please inquire

BUDGETS
Just because you get the highest quality, doesn't mean it has to be the highest price. I strive to work with couples with lower budgets when needed, so more lucky lovebirds can be happy, get what they want, and not stress over money.

CUSTOMER SERVICE
Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

    I live a veg lifestyle in New York with my husband, Dan, and 2 dogs, Olive & Jenny. We enjoy peaceful days here on the island in our little home built in the early 1900s. I adore everything vintage and love crafts, reading, cooking, and photography.
