In short, a design and print studio + consignment gift shop.
What does ‘design and print studio’ mean, you ask? We can help you design, well, anything! Then, we can print most things, usually in house. For what we can’t print in house, we’ve got local friends to help us out.
That said, our favorites can usually be defined as paper pretties! Hence the tagline: Invite. Inform. Express.
INVITE: A facebook event or email blast is great for game night, but some events demand an invitation you can touch. For those events, visit us for handmade, custom invitations! Whether it’s your wedding, a shower, or Granny’s birthday, Paperkeet will help you set the tone of your event.
Have a creative streak? You are encouraged to be as hands-on you like. Come to us with your whimsical, original (or even quirky) ideas and we’ll see your project through! A designer you say? We’re happy to: design, print and assemble for you…essentially provide you with a “kit” you can assemble on your own…or provide you with supplies for you to tackle your project on your own. For you DIY-ers, we have access to multiple lines of paper/supplies, including Envelopments and Green Paper Company.
INFORM: Announcing your newest bundle of joy, or finally earned that degree you’ve been working on? Come and see us for custom announcements!
EXPRESS: We can make you custom desk stationery or thank you cards, with a one day turnaround. Makes a great gift for yourself and others! Give us a call, or stop by the store.
IN THE STORE: We have TONS of super cute gift items, handmade by local artists. We have a line of greeting cards too! Here’s a preview of what’s in the store. Come visit us at:
HOW WE WORK: Come visit us, give us a ring, or email us to chat about how you envision your event. Things we discuss might include: colors, event details, personal taste preferences, and inspirations you’ve probably collected on Pinterest In most cases, we’ll schedule a time for you to come in and talk in more detail.
After meeting, and we have a general idea agreed upon, with prices discussed, we collect a 50% deposit - this goes towards your final balance. This deposit typically covers materials, which helps us get started! We’ll create a timeline so that everyone is on the same page – it will include all deadlines for your event, both for us and you. This includes recommended mailing dates and pickup dates.
Design proofs are sent to you via email. Once proofs are approved, and you’ve signed off on them, we will begin the production process. Once complete, you can pick up at the store or we can ship them to you. We package all products with care to avoid damage during transit. The balance, plus shipping, is due upon completion.
