The New Casa Papel Blog


These past few months we have been busy with the redesign of our website. We are incredibly excited to share this site and all the wonderful work we have been doing for our many wonderful clients. A special ‘shout out’ to the boys at thinkitfirst who designed and created the site. You guys are awesome!

So, what is this blog about? The blog will serve as a way to keep you updated in three different categories. Events will showcase recent happenings as well as events that are coming up that we are participating in or attending. What’s New, just as the title says, will inform you about what’s new at Casa Papel and beyond. We may share new merchandise or things in the stationery industry that we hope are readers will find interesting. Lastly, Show and Tell will give you visual inspiration from work we’ve done for our clients or paper goods that we love and what to share with you.

We understand how challenging it can be to find time to read with all the bombardment of information coming at you all the time. So, these blogs are intended to be short and sweet. We hope that you’ll come back when you need a little inspiration of beautiful design work.

So, let the adventure begin and invite you to come along on this wild ride.

Stratus Rooftop Lounge at Hotel Monaco


On July 25th, my husband and I have the opportunity to experience Stratus Rooftop lounge at Hotel Monaco. This place is amazing and will make you feel like you have been transported to some far away, exotic place! It makes me want to plan some sort of event for the fun of it just to have the excuse to come back. Chez Tellez, is amazing and the food served at the event was fabulous! So, stop by and visit this amazing venue and speak with Michael Mitloff, Director of Catering and Events, about booking your next event here!

*Interesting tidbit

Hotel Monaco is nestled in the iconic Lafayette Building built in 1907! It is part of the Kimpton Hotel chain that specializes in boutique style hotels throughout the U.S. and provides true personal attention.

Until next time,

One Of My Favorite Days


One of my favorite days at school was Show and Tell. It was a day that you could see what was special to someone else and learn a little more about their life and what they cherish. It is no surprise that I create a category with this exact position.

Customers come into the store/studio and ask, “What do you do with the paper?” Well, this is just a small sampling of our work as well as our wonderful customer’s work. The common thread is that we either designed and printed or acted as printer on our specialty paper using one or several of our printing methods.

Again, thanks for taking a peek at the work shown here and enjoy! Come back soon!

I absolutely loved working on the wedding suite for Steve and Julia! They are one of the sweetest couples we have worked with. The theme was vintage/romantic sprinkled with little hints of pink. The main invitation featured two-color thermography* printing and the rest of the pieces were digitally flat printed. We also designed a seating chart, bar menu and table numbers and thank you cards.

Have a little peek at this beautiful wedding! The following photos were taken by M2 Photography.

Until next time,

*Interesting Tidbit:
*Thermography printing: The letters and/or design are printed with high-tack inks which are dusted with resinous powder while still wet. Excess powder is vacuumed off and the sheet goes into a heat tunnel where the powder melts, fuses with the ink and swells to create a smooth, raised surface.


We have the honor and pleasure of being one of the partners in the annual bridal event of the season, The Bellevue Gets Engaged!
