Contributing Designers

BANTER AND CHARM

Banter and Charm is owned by talented designer Sarah Brown. Sarah's love of art and design began at a young age, thanks to a wonderful mother who regularly encouraged art and craft projects. Over the years, this love of the arts continued, until Sarah turned her passion into her livelihood when she started her own design company, Banter and Charm. Since 2008, she's happily watched her company flourish, and looks forward to continuing to grow her business in the years to come.

Sarah lives in southwest Michigan with her husband Jake, where together they enjoy fixing up their first house and spending time with family and friends.

Lauren has a 'less is more' approach to design. Her designs are clean and elegant with a focus on beautiful type and subtle details.

SINCERELY JACKIE

Sincerely Jackie is the creative outlet and stationery shop led by New York based designer Jackie Mangiolino.  While working full-time in the field of corporate Talent Development and Coaching, Jackie found stationery design to be her true joy and passion.  Based on her belief in the importance of handwritten thank notes, she opened her stationery shop in 2010 with just one line of thank you cards. Since then, she has grown her brand to include wedding invitations, stationery, and stamps - all while balancing her professional career in the corporate world.
