About The Designer
I’m Allison Kotarsky, the owner, graphic designer, and printer here at Paper Hearts! I love adding a unique touch to your event through customized stationery that tells your story.
My website is filled with stationery designs, but be sure to check out my instagram for even more inspiration and updates on my daily life as a designer and mama to two little boys. My favorite design elements include watercolor florals and script fonts. I also love a good dusty blue or blush pink envelope. Vintage stamps and wax seals make my antique-loving heart sing a happy tune. I could chat about details for hours! No seriously, I love talking about paper and stationery with people who are just as excited as I am. Think we’d be a good fit?
I can’t wait to work with you!
I’m the mama to two little boys. I never thought I would be a boy mom, but I actually don’t mind playing in the dirt and watching superhero movies. I work from home so my office hours aren’t always set to a schedule and I like it that way!
I started designing wedding invitations because I loved ordering swatch books and looking through all of the colors, no joke. I would spend hours pulling swatches and making pretty color combinations.
I grew up in the small town of Uniontown, Pennsylvania. I graduated from Cal U where I was the captain of the dance team. My husband is a Penn State grad, so we love spending weekends in State College! Bob actually proposed on the steps of Old Main making Penn State even more special for us.
I love to run and it’s a great stress reliever for the hectic spring wedding season. Some think I’m crazy, but when I’m training I look forward to the long 7-8 mile run days to clear my head and push myself. I’ve completed 4 half marathons and I’m excited to start training for a 5th!
