We created invitations and illustrated table signs for Eve & Nick’s wedding on the rooftop terrace at the Gramercy Park Hotel. Great to see it featured on Style Me Pretty this past November! You can view the full gallery there.

Eve writes: “A brunch-themed cocktail hour included egg and cheese crostini, french toast bites, and mimosas, bellinis and Bloody Marys. In lieu of table numbers, we assigned each table a New York City landmark, illustrated and calligraphed by Paperfinger, who also designed our invitations. We set locations based on the guests seated at each table — for example, we sat at the Museum of Natural History table, the New York landmark where we got engaged, and in a winking nod to our sense of humor, we sat the groom’s high school friends, all native New Yorkers, at the Times Square table.”

paperfinger : Snippet & Ink’s select vendor!

Posted: August 26th, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: calligraphy, paperfinger, press, weddings | No Comments »


Exciting news! Snippet & Ink, one of my most favorite wedding sites, launched their new select vendor guide yesterday and Paperfinger is one of the very few calligraphers chosen to be a part of the guide!

They describe the guide best:

Snippet & Ink Select is a handpicked selection of wedding vendors and companies we believe in, people we have worked with personally, and who have passed our careful approval process. These are the vendors we would recommend to our sisters and our best friends, because their work represents the best the wedding industry has to offer.

abe & frank : wedding calligraphy at the foundry

Posted: June 27th, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: calligraphy, menus, new york city, paperfinger, press, weddings | No Comments »


Abe & Frank’s wedding at the Long Island City Foundry was featured yesterday on Design*Sponge!

I’m so happy to see the pics (nice work by Scott Clark!) from their beautiful day, particularly with gorgeous flowers by my pals Poppies & Posies.

I provided calligraphy for Abe & Frank’s invitation addressing and had the fun task of writing mirror and zinc menus for the cocktail bar and dinner tables, which you see pictured above and below. The Foundry makes for such a great venue as always.

And of course, seeing these pics after yesterday’s Supreme Court decision just adds to the joy of them. View the full post on Design*Sponge.

queretaro, mexico : scene four

Posted: March 28th, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: press, the earth, travel, Uncategorized | No Comments »


We took to the road to drive through the vast mountains of the Sierra Gorda, a region north of Queretaro city. Some of the roads took us high into the clouds, as the road wound in hairpin turns through misty little villages. This is an archeological site from the 5th century, the ruins of Las Ranas.

This Paperfinger menu was featured in the current issue of Rue Magazine. The story, “Magic in the Secret Garden,” was directed and styled by Lavender Joy Weddings (thanks Stefanie!) and shot by Ryan Ray. Florals by Bows & Arrows, dinnerware from Greta Bean. I’m so happy with how it all came together.

smith rock : and other adventures in bend

Posted: January 31st, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: press, the earth, travel | No Comments »

Spent the other weekend in Bend, Oregon hiking around Smith Rock State Park where we watched crazy/impressive rock climbers repel down from “Monkey Face” rock; skiing and trekking at Mount Bachelor and the necessary face-plant of a nap after it was all over. Beautiful place!







(Pictures by us; and yes, got a bit filter happy with my new Snapseed app)
