Meet Me



Hi, I’m Kate, and I’m the brains and heart behind Katlem Design. I’m a wife, mom, business owner and graphic designer. When I’m not busy at my desk or meeting with a client, my adorably active little boy knows exactly how to keep me occupied! He brings so much joy and laughter to our lives, every day! Other than a short stint in Hawaii (one year—I wish it were more), I’m a lifelong New Englander. Things that I love, in no particular order, include; sports (GO Patriots!), a good game of volleyball, zumba, a nice SUP paddle with my husband, and spending time with my friends and family!




Back in 2004, when my husband and I were getting ready to say, “I do”, we had a difficult time finding invitations that really suited the feel and tone of our wedding. So, with the help of some friends, I decided to create my own! I believe that I’d be hard-pressed to convince my friends to handcraft envelopes from scratch ever again, however, I enjoyed the process so much that I decided to make it my business! My business started out with a focus on graphic design, identity and stationery design, and that has since evolved into a focus solely on stationery design. I find it very rewarding to work with a client and craft their ideas into a beautiful piece of stationery for their special event. Weddings, birthdays and other special events can be such important milestones in one’s life and I just adore being a small part of that! 




Semi-Custom: Semi-custom designs begin with a correspondence between you and me to obtain all of the required information so that I can accurately customize the design that you’ve chosen. Once I’ve customized the design for you, I will send it back to you for approval. After you’ve approved the design I will send the files to my printing partner and they will ship the customized stationery to your door.


Custom: Custom designs begin with either a email, phone or face-to-face meeting (depending on your location) to discuss your needs and ideas. Once we’ve established a direction, I will then provide you with (number?) design ideas to choose from. After you’ve chosen the design that makes your heart sing and we’ve ensured that all of the content is correct, I will then send it off to my printing partner. Once your stationery has been printed, my printing partner will send it directly to your door, unless it requires any assembly. In which case, it will be sent to me for assembly and upon completion, I will send, or personally deliver, it right to your door.
