KIRSTON

OWNER, CREATIVE DIRECTOR

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 learning the ins and outs, perfecting every detail, and absolutely fell in love with the design process.  First with an idea, then a sketch, then with paint, watercolor, PhotoShop, Illustrator and InDesign. Thus, a dream was born and I began working towards 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

Right from the start, Katelyn seemed just as enthusiastic about my engagement as I was which made PaperPlum stand out from all other companies I had reached out to.The process was seamless from start to finish from choosing colors and fonts, to follow up proofs, Katelyn had helpful suggestions which never left me feeling alone or confused. One of the best things was how quick she was to respond with everything, I was never anxiously waiting on anything. Thank you SO much for my dream invitations and experience, Katelyn and the PaperPlum team!

Katelyn exceeded all of my expectations throughout the entire process. She provided so much insight and guidance in a process that was completely new to me. She answered all my questions no matter how small and the end product was beyond anything I could have ever expected. To say I'm impressed would be an understatement! Planning a wedding can be stressful, but when you're working with Katelyn the stress vanishes because you know you're in the best hands. My invitations arrived last night and they're the most beautiful invitations I have ever seen. Thank you, seriously THANK YOU!

I could not have imagined a more perfect person to work with than Katelyn! She was patient, creative, communicative and so kind throughout the whole process designing and making my wedding invitations! She would text, call, and email to make sure continuous updates were given to me as each step of the process was complete! She has such a knack for this creative field and even found many errors that I hadn't noticed! I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for someone to bring their dream invitations to life!

The number one thing I was excited for when I became engaged was paper! Not dresses, not decorations, just paper! I searched for months to find the right wedding invitations. I wanted our guests to feel excited for our wedding as soon as they saw the envelope. After searching high and low I came across Katelyn!  If you’re worried about not holding a tangible invitation before you receive them, there is no need to worry. Katelyn will send you clear proofs that are true to color and detail, and will look even better in person. Katelyn, thank you for all of your hard work and creativity on my wedding invitations. I will forever treasure them!

I had spent so much time searching for the perfect wedding invitation suite - I looked at hundreds and found nothing that really captured what I wanted!  Then I found Katelyn.  I briefly explained elements of different designs that I liked and she was able to combine them into a design that was absolutely perfect!  She was quick to get back to me with proofs and so easy to work with!  Katelyn, I am so pleased with the design and the quality!  Thank you so much for saving me what was turning into a disaster and making it so seamless!
