About papercakedesigns

Sales 3,247
On Etsy since 2008

A wedding & event graphic design studio

I started Papercake Designs in 2005 so engaged couples could create wedding invitations & stationery that are truly their own. The business began with a partnership with a pastry chef. We created wedding & party experiences in which cake & invitations were designed to match.

As a professional graphic designer loaded with ideas & inspiration, I offer the customization that larger stationery companies just can’t. Finding the right design & paper for each client’s event is still my passion.

Together, we'll customize your invitations down to the smallest details. Planning events can be stressful, but I’ve been collaborating successfully with clients for 15 years. Let me be your paper therapist!
