Fashionable Paper

At Paperista, we have an equal and undying love for both fashion and paper. We know our clients have to come to love our ability to combine the two and make beautiful, unique printed creations for their special occasions and lifestyle correspondence.  Taking it to an even more visible level, we had an idea to partner with the eco-fabulous and stunning Letterpress stationery company, Smock, to create a “wow” window display. We commissioned Rika VanHeerde Snyder, a fashion student at the University of Minnesota and intern for Minneapolis-based wedding gown designer Tara LaTour to create two dresses made entirely of paper. Letterpress invitations and gift wrap came to us from Smock and Rika was off and running.  She had only three weeks to turn them around and the results are jaw-dropping. As always, thank you to Erica Loeks Photography for the amazing photos.


We are sure you’ve fallen in love with the gowns as much as we have. Stop in to stare with us and be sure to take a gander at all of the beautiful Smock stationery products we carry in the store…..oh and p.s., if you’d like a little printed love for yourself, Smock is currently offering free return address printing on envelopes for both wedding and holiday card orders.  Stop in soon!
