    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!

    Really beautiful invitations!

    I had my wedding, bridal shower, and bachelorette invitations done here! They’re really good quality, definitely worth the money! The price was also the best I was able to find in Calgary. She was able to do custom work for me and give me eaxactky what I was looking for.

    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!

    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.

    Victoria, it was my pleasure working with you! We were able to create something amazing putting both our heads together! Congrats, and thank you for allowing me to be a part of your special day!! Kimberly

    Amazing invitations

    Had amazing invitations printed here. They had great ideas. We had a very short time frame before we had to send the invitations out, and they got it all done with time to spare. Would highly suggest using them!!

Meet the Team

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!
