Simply Breathtaking!

Big Kitchen Papers was a dream to work with! Designing and purchasing my invitations with Christine was hands down the most pleasant experience I've had while planning my wedding. Christine took my general ideas and transformed them into gorgeous invitations. The quality of the paper and printing is excellent, but most of all the calligraphy is just superb. The invitations are truly a work of art! I am absolutely OBSESSED and simply can't say enough about how awesome working with Christine was!

Chris Shanley with Big Kitchen Papers is simply THE BEST! Her creativity is absolutely amazing!

Big Kitchen Papers is an incredible custom and semi custom stationer. Whether you are doing a wedding, party, cards or stationary, this vendor will NEVER disappoint! Chris Shanley goes above and beyond ALL the time. I have used Chris for over 20 years and to this day she is the ONLY one I will go to when I need invites, menus, table cards, Christmas cards, stationary, etc. Her calligraphy is so incredibly beautiful. The addressed envelope is a work of art in and of itself. Big kitchen Papers is truly a special find!

Our daughter and son-in-law had a destination wedding in Ireland. Chris worked her magic with invitations, calligraphy and every design aspect to create a truly magical wedding that captured the spirit of the bride and groom.
And best of all, it is an absolute joy to work with Chris! Her professionalism and quality of product are unparalleled in this industry.
