Great seller who was communicative and offered fast service for my daughter's birthday invitation. I plan to order from her again in the future.

The banner is very nice. Thank you for your hard work in making it.
Stationery that stands out. Custom work that brings your theme and vision to life on paper. Invitations and party decorations as beautiful as the day they celebrate. Craft kits that are as fun as they are engaging.
Years ago, a friend at a local trendy stationery store clued me into a huge gap in the market that she thought I could fill in - "Will you be my Bridesmaid" cards. I knew she was right and there wasn't much out there, so I designed colorful and very cheeky Bridesmaid cards. These took off and so did business!
I now work at that trendy stationery store and have over three years of experience at Papersource, everyone's favorite gift and paper shop! It's there I have gained further experience on trends, amazing customer service, and current design and craft techniques. I now teach craft classes out of my home in the Chicago, IL area.
I design cards and invitations not only for brides, but babies, kids, and their "grown ups." Established in 2008, I've been able to work with clients over the years and have enjoyed designing shower invitations, birth announcements, change of address cards, and birthday invitations! It's so nice to work with people as their family grows and moves!
I look forward to working with you and designing something special for your "something" special!
I'm a city girl living in a suburban world with my little family. We hope to get a puppy soon because life is never crazy enough! I exist for tacos, empanadas, HBO, rehabbing our house and yard, playing with paper, and avocado toast.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders
A custom or personalized order is any order which involves the customer's ability to make a color choice, add personalized information to the product (such as a name, information on an invitation, age, etc.), request a change in design, request a new product designed exclusively for the customer, a unique size or amount, or an order marked as "custom" or "reserved" in the listing title. Due to the nature of custom orders, and design time involved, once we begin work on your design or order, it cannot be cancelled.
So, pretty much all invitations or stationery which would require the customer to review a proof and say, "This is the most gorgeous thing I've ever seen - print it now!"
Shipping and handling prices
My shipping and handling prices include the price of USPS postage service to mail the package, and the price of the packaging materials.
I strive to stay up to date with ever changing postage fees, and keep separate the cost of the product from the S/H costs. A customer may find the S/H price may be very close to the price of the item sold, or even higher due to the nature of the items I sell and what USPS charges. Other shops offer free or lower S/H fees, but that just means they are building it into the price of the item. I want to be transparent and honest and keep S/H fees fair and reasonable for both the customer, and my shop.
Please contact me with any further questions you may have regarding S/H prices or policies.
I see something I like, but want to make changes. Is that cool?
Heck ya, that's cool! That's why you're here and not at a big box store, right? One of the best things about buying handmade items is the ability to receive personalized service and products! Please let me know what changes you're looking to make and I'll let you know what can be done, and if it will require any additional design fees.
In other words, ask and ye shall receive. (However please ask prior to placing your order just to be sure). Thanks!
How long will it take until I get my order?
That is a great question! It depends on what you are ordering, and where it is going...
Custom orders take longer than things I have "in stock" because we need time to hash out your design before I print it out and mail it to you.
Larger orders take longer than smaller ones (natch).
I'm in Chicago, so where you live can affect how long it will take. Canadian and other international orders may take a few weeks to be delivered and I don't have the ability to track orders once outside the United States.
Contact me with the item you are interested in and I can give you an estimate on the time it will leave my hands. After that, it's up to the pigeons!
What is eco friendly about paper invitations and stationery?
I use card stock and envelopes from 100% recycled materials and/or 30% post consumer waste. Some of these materials come from plants or mills powered by wind and/or hydro sources. Most of the products I use are purchased locally and in bulk, reducing the amount of gas used in transporting these materials.
I am a one woman operation, and I live where I work. I'm in the US. I'm in the Midwest. I'm in Chicago. If you can relate to any of that - imagine what my carbon footprint looks like vs. a large stationery shop's.
I, Katherine Kelly, hoard craft materials. Nothing is thrown away. Ever. All unused card stock is repurposed until it is completely useless and maybe then it is used as packing material.
