"Before meeting and marrying Dan, I'd had the pleasure of working with Kathleen on several personal and corporate projects over the years.

Whatever the task at hand, Kathleen takes things to a whole new level of creativity and sophistication. She cares about every last detail, and puts her heart into every project.

I live in Los Angeles, but continued to work, seamlessly, with Kathleen for the seven years she owned Kathleen Cooper Fine Papers in Santa Barbara.

While there, she custom designed the most beautiful letterpress wedding invitations for us, along with bright festive invitations for our party the day after."

"One of the first decisions we made when planning our wedding was our invitations! Choosing Kathleen to help us was the easiest choice we made. Her experience in this industry is unmatched and she is beyond helpful - especially in the department of wedding invitation etiquette, which we needed! With Kathleen's help, we were able to translate the feel of our wedding through our invitations. We hope Kathleen will make our personal stationery and anything else that requires paper for a very long time! Her work is impeccable to say the least and has been one of the best investments we have made, you will be thrilled and can't go wrong!"

Eliza + Charles

"Kathleen saved the day, and the wedding!!   I completely procrastinated on my invitations.  I  walked into her shop, having told her a little about myself and about my wedding ahead of time, and she understood almost immediately what our vision was.   She sent design options for the entire wedding invitation suite in just a couple of days, and I fell in love. In just a few weeks everything was delivered.  It was a fantastic experience!  Kathleen really holds your hand throughout the process, which is exactly what I needed!!  

 Thank you, Kathleen.  I’ll be telling all my friends, family, and even strangers, about you!"

"Kathleen was awesome! It took us some time to come up with a vision for our wedding invitations. She was right there, showing us options and sharing her experience about what works and doesn't. Then, when we knew what we wanted, she was right there ready to put the invitations together. Kathleen made us beautiful invitations and was a joy to work with. Highly recommend. Also, everything we know about wedding etiquette we learned from her."

"Kathleen is an absolute dream to work with and I can't say enough about her. She gave us personalized service and was incredibly patient and attentive. We created a custom invitation suite and Kathleen went above and beyond to make sure that the end product matched our vision.

Working with Kathleen, from Australia by the way,  was an excellent experience.  I can't recommend her highly enough. Definitely my favorite vendor to work with over our entire wedding planning process!"
