Couture in an Envelope

Elegance. Sophistication. Luxury.

Are these what you dream of when you envision your invitations for your special day?

All of my designs are completely original, and each invitation is individually cut and folded to bring you unique, designer quality.

Couture in an envelope. Because you have excellent taste.

About Cathleen

I got my start in stationery when I was still in high school. A family friend gave me a Klutz card-making craft kit, and I loved it. Soon I started creating original designs and selling them at small artisan stores and craft shows.

And then came college. With two majors, a minor, and lots of side jobs, I didn’t have a lot of time to pursue my paper passion.

My first job out of college was as an actuarial analyst for a Columbus insurance company - meaning I was (and still am) a math and stats nerd.

After three years at my company, I decided to resign; I started dedicating all of my time to designing and creating eye-catching paper artwork.

I truly hope that I can help you realize every detail of your stationery aspirations for your special day!

Your Day. Your Dream.

It is my goal to bring you the most original, stunning invitations you can imagine.

I draw inspiration from everything around me; from nature, to ethnic textiles, to designer runway events, the myriad stunning details in life serve as my muses.

Choose your invitation set from my ‘fashion collections’ - in true couture style. Once you’ve decided on your design, you can choose fonts, paper color, RSVP options, thank you card sets, and more.

Looking for something even more special? I would love to discuss custom options with you if you have a specific vision.

The Uniqueness You Crave.

No cookie-cutter designs here! All of the designs you see are painstakingly drawn and produced by yours truly. Just think Coco Chanel or Christian Dior. But for paper. 

Laser-cutting allows for very ornate and intricate detail. Because very high-speed light is involved, the paper may have a slightly smoky scent. I ship your order with lightly perfumed packaging, so most of the smoky notes should be faded by the time it arrives.

And as always, if you have any concerns with your finished product, I’m here to discuss with you. Your satisfaction is my top priority.
