Kim is amazing!! She did such a wonderful job creating our wedding programs and invites. I wanted to add a touch of gold to the design and she had great suggestions. She was extremely patient when I had to change my reception venue (more than once) and update my information. I would highly recommend Kim!

I ordered the design in the UK and despite the time differences communication was easy. The download of documents were perfect and I've just recieved them back from the printers and I'm in love.
Designing the dream
Hello! and welcome to my shop!
I'm Kim, I design stationery and paper products - in Sunny San Diego
I was born to be my own boss - as a kid I lived in imaginary worlds. I had a wonderful *real* life childhood, but I loved daydreaming and playing pretend. As an adult (I still do that!), I decided I needed the freedom to design my own days around my most favorite things. I was always "creative" - but not in a free, bohemian way - rather in a problem-solving/organized/needing-everything-to-be-beautiful way.
I went to school at San Diego State University and have my degree in Interior Design - really, the most perfect combination of creative and technical. But I didn't love the industry. I didn't belong. I realized as time went on, that I prefer to work with regular, every-day people - aunties and brides and friends!
It really started when I designed our wedding invitations in 2011. I was all in. I found the thing that I wanted to do all. day. long. I love fonts and typography. I love creating pretty, balanced layouts that tell a story and set a tone for an event. Most of all, I love that my husband was so supportive and told me to quit my day job and take the leap and finally start my Etsy shop.
And here I am. Living in a little studio with my sweet husband, sitting in front of my computer all day, working with people from around the world (!!!), drinking really yummy iced coffee, with sitcoms on in the background, and designing.
Follow me here or on Facebook and Instagram - there's always something new in the works!
Hi there! My name is Kim, owner and designer for greylein design + paperie. Sitting in front of my computer designing new things (with a good cup of coffee of course!) is my passion. I'm so blessed to be full time doing what I love most.
Hi - Danielle here! I am a full-time mom and virtual assistant in-between the chaos! Babies + coffee + pretty things are my jam. I love helping others and getting to see them flourish and I am so excited to be apart of the greylein team.
Hello! I’m Kelly, passionate patriot, blessed wife, & loving ‘fur-baby mom’. I got my degree in Design where I met Kim. Working alongside these amazing ladies + making beautiful things for beautiful moments around the world… what could be better?
