A little over a year ago, Marley Hoagland launched her custom stationery company Pen & Ink Paperie in Arkansas.

“I’ve always loved beautiful wedding invitations, and having just gotten married this past year, I went through the planning process, so I now know exactly how to make brides’ invitations and printing so much easier,” Marley says.

As the owner and lead designer, Marley works one-on-one with her couples to create their dream invitations and paper goods (signage, stickers, stamps, magnets and so much more) — within whatever budget they have.

“We work to get [couples] exactly what they want and help them stay within their budget,” she says.

Marley makes it a totally stress-free process. Seeing each couple’s vision for their big day is one of her favorite parts of the process.

“I love taking it from the idea stage and making it come to life,” she says. “These are the pieces that [make an] impression and carry their look through.”

Marley is always ready to try a new idea or to put a creative spin on something traditional — she says she loves to think outside the box.
