About

paper + cake … a graphic design studio

From the moment Larissa & her brother began the design concept on his wedding invites, until the day they assembled the package together, she knew this was something she would love to do every day!

Larissa & Karin (friend & pastry chef) started Papercake Designs in 2005. They were in it for the excitement of creating custom wedding invitations styled to match the wedding cake design! Their mission was to personalize the small details that make each couple or event unique, and do it at a reasonable price. {Although it is now only an invitation design studio, they'll never forget the fun times they had in the bake shop + on wedding cake delivery days}.

Finding the right paper & design for each client's event is still Larissa's personal passion… the end goal being unique & memorable to not only her brides, but also their guests! ;)

Please send me an email to start the design process… I can send a custom quote after I know your favorite design. (I can also attach a file to work from once a $50 non-refundable deposit is applied). Plus:
> I will also need to know a date you are looking to receive your final invitation suite by so I can add you to my production calendar (invites usually go out 6-10 weeks prior to your big day)!
> Quantity: count addresses & add 10% more for extras
