Beautiful Custom Invitations

Kim was lovely to work with. She helped us take some general ideas we had for our wedding and made beautiful invitations to match. She has a fantastic selection of high-quality paper in every colour you could imagine and has experience doing many different types of invitations, RSVP cards, etc. Her turn around time was also very fast, which allowed us to go back and forth until we got exactly what we wanted and were able to send it all out right on time.

Phenomenal work

I originally had reached out to Kimberly just for the invitations. I wanted some very specific laser cut, glitterific designs and she made it come to life. The whole process was so easy and well done we made the decision to use her for all our stationary needs. I met with Kimberly to discuss what we were looking for and she was prepared with samples and suggestions. We ordered a seating chart, menus, programs and seating cards. A little while later I reached out to her about our wedding favours, which were CD’s, and she happily came up with a design for that as well. She was great at sending mock-ups of the designs before printing them and answering any questions I might have (such as MORE GLITTER???) We received so many compliments on our wedding invitations as well as the day-of stationary and Kimberly made all our design dreams come true!

Highly Recommend

We went with Kimberly for our wedding menus and table board, and were SO glad we did. She was really easy to work with, and understood the aesthetic we were going for. All we did was show her a sample of our invitation, and she matched it with her own twist. The quality was amazing, and it made our planning so much easier knowing that we had a professional taking care of this. Strongly recommend!

Beautiful invites

We used Paper Panache for our wedding invites and were thrilled with how they turned out. The entire process was so easy from start to finish. They have a beautiful selection to chose from and help to customize to exactly what you're looking for. Highly recommend to everyone

Quality Custom Stationary

I worked with Paper Panache for our entire wedding, from the RSVPs to the Thank You cards, she did it all! Thank goodness too because I have no creative edge so she really helped bring our vision to life. She was incredibly patient throughout, as sometimes I couldn't decide if I liked a proof or if my work schedule made it so I responded to her emails at 3am. I can't wait to use her for future stationery needs.

August 2019 Wedding Invitations

Paper Panache did a wonderful job designing and creating our wedding invitations. They were so beautiful and well done, and from design to printing it was completed very promptly. We had envelopes with front and back addressing done as well and it looked perfect. They were so gorgeous I didn’t even want to mail them out lol but if course we did and we received so many compliments about how beautiful they were!

Kimberly Archibald
Kimberly Archibald
Owner & Designer

Born and raised in Calgary, Alberta I knew early on that pursuing a ‘creative’ job was my dream. Spending more time designing cover pages of high school essays, and more time colouring maps then memorizing them it was obvious.

As an emotional card giver and lover of all things paper art, I believe that personal stationery makes a deep and lasting impression. As a graphic designer I founded Paper Panache in 2011 after falling in love with paper and stationery while working at a local card shop. My mission is simply to design exquisite social stationery and shine a spotlight on a beautiful and under-appreciated art form. Also, to share a love of all things paper and beautiful with Calgarian’s in our great city!

Paper Panache boasts beautiful design aesthetics and superb customer service. I cherish craftsmanship, experienced design, and steadfast one-on-one service. Combining a love of typography and illustration, I create exceptional wedding invitations and stationery. This means that unlike most studios, I do not offer a catalogue from which our clients choose upon. Instead I offer a complete design experience where I will design and print invitations that are truly unique to my clients.

I am so grateful to have a fun creative job where I am passionate about the products I sell and the people I meet. Every invitation I design is unique, some challenging, but always a thrill when the clients pick up the invite with smiles, and some times tears!
