K A T E L Y N   K I R S T O N

owner, creative director


I'm Katelyn! I'm the owner, the hands and the heart behind this precious business of mine.


Growing up, there was nothing I loved more than to be making a mess - drawing, painting, building, sewing, sculpting, jewelry design, you name it.


While working at my last corporate job, I was introduced to the world of graphic design, branding and print; ultimately stumbling across a passion I never knew I had! I found the entire process of graphic arts to be so fascinating and daunting at the same time. Every program seemed so complex and limitless with abilities and options; and trust me, it is!

I invested months educating myself on the world of graphic design and print. Perfecting every detail - first with an idea, then a sketch, then PhotoShop, Illustrator

I invested months learning the ins and outs of design and print; perfecting every detail. First with a concept, then a sketch, converting to digital files,

print-ready files, plate-making and production. Thus a dream was born and I began working toward making it a reality.

I quit my full-time job in 2014 and launched PaperPlum.

My experience working with Katelyn has been amazing! Katelyn was extremely patient and answered all of the many questions and changes I’ve had. She sent samples to choose the coloring and material for the suite. So many great things she’s done throughout this process.

I’m deployed and my fiancé and I have been planning our wedding abroad for the last 9 months. She’s made it super accommodating for our schedules. My parents had the honor of taking the first peak at our invitations and they were speechless. When I saw them, my eyes lit up with how gorgeous they are! Katelyn is the best and I would definitely recommend her to anyone
