From our initial appointment, where we select your design, printing methods, paper types, and elegant finishings, the Paperie is here to help you curate a paper suite that fits your vision and budget. When we’re finished with the invitations, we then focus on our favorite part of the creative process. Carrying all of what we design, over to your day-of details and decor! We work very hard to ensure your Wedding and Event Stationery, and the entire creative experience, is flawless and fun. We know the end result will exceed your expectations!
Hello! I'm Jessica Leigh Marino, a friendly Long Island, New York native and the founder of Jessica Leigh Paperie. I've been designing stationery for weddings and events since 2009. With a former career in the Creative Services Direct Marketing world and a brief stint as a banquet hall coordinator and planner, but all of that is for another much longer About section ;-). I have been artistically inclined since the day I could hold a crayon. I draw inspiration from the world around me, the latest design trends, and my long conversations with clients. Fun Fact: I love to create well past the time most people have gone to bed.
After design is approved, printing can begin! Average production is about 4 weeks. When all phases of production are complete, we schedule client pick up. Printing for Wedding invitations specifically is done closer to when you'll be mailing. We like to schedule pick ups the month prior to your 3 month mailing window.
Once you've established that you'd like to work with me. I setup your contract, send you templates to fill out, and a 50% deposit is required. Then we can begin designing! Your proofs are then created and sent for review. Edits can be made until you're extremely happy and love your project!
Via phone or in person in my studio. We get to know each other a bit, and then dive in to discussing your design goals. I love to know your ideas and see inspiration. We also chat about specialty printing methods, paper types, etc. I will show you samples, and from there I will put together your custom pricing.
