KB Paperie launched in the fall of 2016 after the Air Force relocated founder Kelly Blose and her husband, Holden, from Seattle, Washington to Wichita Falls, Texas- a small town just north of Dallas. Having both a BFA in design and previous work experience as a letterpress printer in a stationery studio the moment felt right to take the risk and do something she had always want to do. Within months of relocating KB Paperie was fully operational.
At KB Paperie we believe in never taking ourselves too seriously which is something we try and infuse in all of our greeting cards. Within the collection, you will often see tight line illustrations that are loosely filled in with color.
When not at her desk, you will find Kelly either in her print shop mixing ink or printing on Foxy Roxy her 100-year-old Chandler and Price letterpress. All of the greeting cards at KB Paperie are conceptualized, illustrated and printed under the same roof resulting in a truly special product.
Things We Love :
French Bulldogs, running, cheese, craft cocktails, rainy days,
impromptu dance parties, paper, mixing ink, napping, family.
