All of our available collections are customizable with colors, fonts, and your wording. A completely custom one-of-a-kind option is also available.

How We got here...

After receiving a BFA in Communication Design from Kutztown University of Pennsylvania, I soon found myself in the toy industry designing packaging for preschool consumer products. After a short freelance career at Crayola in my home town of Easton, PA, I packed my bags and moved to the Big Apple to start designing toy packages for Fisher-Price in NYC. I spent seven years gaining knowledge and experience in brand design and execution by designing packaging and trade show art for popular brands like Disney and Nickelodeon. While it was one of the greatest experiences, I often found myself daydreaming about designing brand stationery and invitations.

Soon after getting married in 2014, my husband landed a job in the Lehigh Valley so we decided to take the opportunity to move back and be closer to my family. After tolerating the bus commute from PA to NYC for a little too long, I decided to leave the toy industry to pursue my dream and start my own stationery studio. I set up shop in our 1832 colonial in the downtown historic district of Easton, PA. In addition to stationery, I also  design brand development and execution at katewatson.design
