About

Paper Stories is a letterpress & design studio based in the Chicagoland area. Using vintage presses and modern technology, we are able to create anything we can dream up. From baby announcements and wedding invitations to stationery and even rock posters, we welcome every challenge for creating little pieces of paper perfections.

Paper Stories has been designing and letterpressing joy into people's lives since 2005. Working primarily on a 1926 Chandler & Price printing press, lovingly named Chandy P. (aka "The Behemoth"), our little Chicago area studio handcrafts every card and invitation that leaves our doors. While our company is small, our ideas are big. We
wouldn't have it any other way.

We also pride ourselves on our with social and environmental responsibility. All of our invitations are printed on tree-free or post-consumer waste recycled stock, using vegetable based inks. We even recycle our scraps into new paper for printing. Additionally, we donate profits in the form of micro-loans for entrepreneurs in developing nations. We specifically donate towards those in the arts or in education.

    Kelly Maron with Paper Stories did an absolutely amazing job on my wedding invitations. She created a gorgeous, unique and inspired design from very little information from me, and the finished product was even better than I could have imagined. At least 5 different guests told me that her invitations were the most beautiful wedding invitations they have ever received, so that speaks for itself!

    Kelly is very patient and kind to work with. Plus, I think her prices are very reasonable. I researched high and low for a stationer that would make a special invitation for me, but never did I expect to have something so perfect at such a great price and from such a lovely person. I highly, highly recommend her! I really mean it.

    Paper Stories's reply:

    Thank you Nicole. I had a great time creating your invitations. They are one of my favorites to date!
