Ellen Albertson

Owner | Designer | Maker

I officially began my business, Paper Pleasers in 2011. My friends and family began referring me to do their wedding stationery and everything in between. They knew my experience in managing multiple projects and creative ingenuity was something unique, and saw the passion and heart I put into my own making and gift giving. I really love being a part of the planning process, discovering how to make something memorable, personal, and special for every client I work with. Being in control of my business allows me to have an endless variety of options to pull from, and create a personal connection to the people I've had the opportunity to meet. Those are the qualities that set small businesses apart, and that's why I continue supporting other small businesses myself. It’s a community of people that is pretty awesome to be part of.
