About Griffinbell Paper Co.

Griffinbell Paper Co. is named for my two children, Griffin and Bella. I believe good design should spark an emotional response. Whether I'm working on a wedding invitation or birth announcement, I try to infuse every piece with a sense of joy.

I recently purchased one of your stationery pieces - invitations for my wedding. They just arrived (aprox 5 minutes ago) and I absolutely LOVE THEM. They are so fantastic. I just want to stare at them. I believe they're called Enchanted. Thank you for working with my additions and changes and even adding some of your own. I'm just absolutely in love. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
