Paper Crew was born in May 2005, when Paul and Chanda Alicante, two married best friends, created their own wedding invitations. Chanda has worked on friend's invitations and card crafted for over 20 years but never took it seriously until after their wedding invitations were sent out in March 2005. The response to their invitations was amazing. They were filled with inquiries and support from all their friends and families to make the leap of faith and quit their corporate jobs to pursue the venture together. With Chanda's design background and Paul's detailed eye, in May of 2005 they launched a home based business, specializing in custom wedding stationery, that the newlyweds ran out of their garage.
In April of 2010, armed with paint, dreams and dozens of Porky's pizza, they opened their first retail store, Paper Crew. Now specializing in custom, unique and handcrafted paper goods, design, DIY download design files (printables), and cut stock. With a team of designers and handy Crafters, they've been featured in Style Me Pretty, Style Unveiled, David Tutera's Unveiled, and so much more in the first 4 years of opening their doors.
Since their launch date, they have had the pleasure to be a part of weddings all over the world and nationwide in the United States.
