My Story

Welcome! I am Val and I am the owner and lead designer of The Paper Perfectionist. My husband, Jim, and I along with our three kids, Jimmy, Nick and Camille, recently moved from Rhode Island to Lynnfield with our two pups, Abby and Tootsie and we are absolutely loving the North Shore! 

In 2009, right before the birth of my second son, Nicholas, I realized I wanted to work from home and have more control over my schedule and passion for design. From my very first intern position at a design firm, I was meeting with paper reps and swooning over all of the amazing printing techniques and design elements. The Paper Perfectionist was born and was something that came out of my love for design, paper and collaboration. 

The Paper Perfectionist is about more than fonts, colors, themes and paper. It’s about YOU. I work with each and every one of my clients to create a one-of-a-kind design based on your wedding inspiration. No two invitations are EVER the same!

I love that more and more couples are looking for little pieces of art to show their guests how much they appreciate them and want them to witness them marry the person they love. Weddings are getting more intimate and more thoughtful. Those little touches are what I am all about. I put my all into my work because I know how special that day is to the couple.

Let me help make your event Paper Perfect!
