About

Courtney Callahan Paper is a design studio specializing in wedding invitations and day-of details. Based out of Chicago, Illinois, but available nationwide, I provide personal attention to each and every client to create a unique piece for their wedding.

Started in 2009 with a focus on wedding invitations, I have worked with over 100 couples and has been featured on Style Me PrettyOh So Beautiful PaperChicago Social BridesInside Weddings, Brides.com, theKnot.com, Glossed & Found, and DailyCandy.

Born in St. Louis the youngest of four, my two amazing parents instilled in us an incredible work ethic, the courage to believe in ourselves  and the regard to always write a thank you note. From the time I was eight and designing business cards for my dad as the President of the Letter People Club, I fostered a love of paper. Since crayons and glitter lack commercial appeal, I honed my design skills through my advertising degree from the University of Missouri Journalism School. It took a couple of years in the corporate world until I was able to follow my dreams and open my design studio.

Today, I fill my days doing what I love – creating for life’s events whether big or small. Each and every client has a unique story that I am happy to help bring to life on paper. When I am not designing, you’ll find me enjoying some of these things: my loving family, supportive friends, music, new restaurants, Chicago, a crisp magazine, a long run, a Venti Black Iced Tea Unsweeted and Swedish Fish.
