THANK YOU for stopping by and seeing what we’re all about.
Now, in case you were wondering, it’s pronounced [pey-per-ee] …. Paperie by MJ. It’s a spinoff from the French word papeterie, which means fancy stationery.
Paperie by MJ is a creative, inspirational, and unique greeting card, invitation, and stationery design company. We cater to life-changing events such as weddings, anniversaries, retirement, childbirth, new job, first time homeowner, off to college, divorce (yes, who says you can’t celebrate the ending of something that was no longer right for you!), and much, much MORE. We provide unique creations for all occasions!
I started my business ownership journey long before I officially filed the required paperwork. I realized that I love to create and design invitations and cards for family, friends, and special events. And, even more so, I loved the ecstatic response, gratitude, and positive feedback I received when they saw and read the unique and polished piece that I made just for them. The feeling is almost indescribable!
The creative process is twofold – crafting just the right words, feelings, and emotions with the right stationery, font, and graphics. As the Chief Graphic Designer, I collaborate with YOU (my client) to create a stunning and memorable piece that captures the mood and essence of your celebration, adventure, and experience.
Now, I have always had a natural talent and ability to create and design. It actually runs in the family - my mom and my daughter also have an eye for art and design. Can you say dynasty Lol!
In addition to operating my business part-time, I still work my 9 to 5 job fulltime. I hold a BA in Business Marketing and a Certificate in Adobe Design Suite. I am a mom of two beautiful and talented children; and, I am also a daughter, sister, friend, volunteer, and mentor. Yes, I’m juggling success and wearing many hats. But, I’m in good company because I know so many strong women that are doing the same thing – handling their business! Through all of life’s events, I always make sure to stay positive, polite, and classy. My experiences can be summed up in the words of Beyoncé, “Always stay gracious, [the] best revenge is your paper.”
