Kris and Shea

Custom Designed Cards That Don’t Cut Corners

Kris and Shea is an online stationer specializing in custom designed invitations and announcements for baby showers, birth, bridal showers, weddings, baptisms, and many more.  Started by two sisters, Kris and Shea, they handle everything from the marketing and business to designing and production.  They sell directly to the customer through their website, krisandshea.com.  Kris and Shea are unique from other stationers because they focus their efforts on creating a unique, custom product for each client at an affordable price.  While most stationers put a high price tag on creating a design from scratch for clients, Kris and Shea do not charge additional fees to create a special and unique design for each client.  They are dedicated and will not quit until the client gets exactly what they want and are completely satisfied.

Kris and SheaThey both attended Virginia Tech and Kris majored in Early Childhood Education while Shea studied Human Resources.  Shea’s degree equipped her with the ability to run a business and manage both big and small details.  She assists with ideas and suggestions when something strikes her as anything can be an inspiration for a new design.  Shea likes to Kris and Sheajoke that Kris got all of the creativity in the family as Kris has always been extremely creative with a strong interest in art.  After college, Kris worked for eight years in the Feature Animation department at Disney contributing to production of films like Lilo & Stich and many more.  After leaving Disney, Kris started her own graphic design company, KT Design.  Her talented work can be seen on www.kristaft.com.  In coming up with designs, Kris is inspired by anything and everything.  With an elaborate design studio at home, she often works late throughout the night to ensure that everything turns out just right. 

These sisters were both interested in creating a business that would work for them personally and their clients.  They both benefit from being able to work from home with flexible hours while caring for their young sons as they each have two boys ages three and under.  Kris and SheaTheir clients also benefit from this arrangement because they can work with both Kris and Shea in getting the exact product they want at an extremely affordable price.  One of our Editor’s Picks is the Paisley Pattern Folded Notecards, which feature a regal royal purple paisley print swirling over a soft lavender background.  These notecards measure 5.5 x 4.2 and are the perfect size for sending a thinking of you note, get well, or thank you.  This feminine yet lively print is for the traditional and classic woman, who wishes to personalize her own stationery with a touch of flair.

Kris and SheaOne of their favorite features is their holiday card line as they have a wide selection of cards ranging from traditional to fun and trendy.  Go retro this year with the Retro Lines Holiday Card, displaying a retro patter of red, green, blue and white vertical lines with twinkling stars in the background.  Add your personal family photo and you have a warm and lively holiday card ready to spread some cheer.  Nothing on their website is set in stone because anything can be tweaked in its colors, fonts, and pictures or an original design can be created.  Any changes or new designs are at no additional cost.  All invitations and announcements are printed on 80 lb matte or glossy finish cardstock and come with white envelopes.  Choose from two sizes, a compact 5.5 x 4.2 or a larger 5.5 x 8.5. 

Kris and SheaKris and Shea also offer whimsical and lighthearted designs such as Sushi Night Out for bachelorette or birthday parties.  This fun invitation catches your eye with the bright red sushi plate and chopsticks and the assortment of colorful sushi above.  If you look closely, even the background print features a soft wallpaper of sushi rolls and cuts.  In the future as the business continues to grow, they would like to eventually target the retail markets as well as the wedding invitation niche.  Kris and Shea have already had the privilege of designing several custom wedding invitations for clients over the past couple years, which turned out amazing.  They were thrilled to provide quality and custom designed wedding invitations to their customers at a much lower price than the average wedding invitations. 

To get just a sampling of what Kris and Shea have to offer, visit krisandshea.com.  These sisters would be more than happy to create a custom design for any of your stationery needs and give you exactly what you want.
