If you’re a calligrapher, wedding stationer or graphic designer looking to turn your art into beautiful stationery products while hitting that six-figure income mark, then you already know that you need to know how to price out costs, attract clients and design stationery that gets pinned by the masses.

You’re a smart cookie, so I’ll spare you the spiel…

No need to convince you that corresponding with a print shop feels like you’re reading a different language. What do they mean by all those # signs and PMS codes?!

After all, you probably already KNOW from your Google search history that marking up your costs and creating a pricing sheet that looks professional AND is the right price will allow you to actually book those dream clients and make that money.

You’ve probably also heard that in order to book those higher budget jobs, you need to know how to put together those mock-ups that *WOW* those planners you’re pitching to and have your clients raving to all their friends about you!

knowing how to create and design paper products while building a reputation

Even if you already have a steady stream of stationery clients, are a skilled calligrapher or designer,

that attracts the right jobs for you can allow you to...

But, here’s what you might not know…

Make money off your skillz

Instantly raise your authority and reputation in the industry

Command higher rates

You’ve got the art part covered. Knowing how to monetize those skills can open up new opportunities and cash flow that will have you choreographing a routine to NSYNC’s “Just Got Paid” for all your office plants to see.

This can lead to those celebrity jobs (wondered what Jennifer Aniston’s Christmas cards look like? I can tell you!) and having prospects line up outside your door to work with you.

Even if this isn’t your first rodeo, once you have those branded decks (pricing sheets, proposals, proof decks) and confidence to create those *3 color letterpress, plus spot foil, plus converted, custom envelope, plus die-cut tags* jobs, you’ll be able to command a higher rate.

Being able to offer stationery design services (and killer paper knowledge) puts you in a whole new level of profits. You’ll no longer have to hustle between addressing jobs, or waiting for that day you can quit your day job and pursue your side hustle. Instead, you’ll have the confidence to bring in consistent and sustainable revenues from work and reputation that does all the hustle for you.

Generate more consistent inquiries and income

Anything is possible with paper, you know that. So, understanding HOW to send a paper file to print that includes knowing what paper to use for watercolor art and a die-cut that makes the RSVP card into a flower dog shape?! Think of all the wow-ing and re-pinning that will happen!

Significantly boost your confidence in sending proofs and print files

Create high-quality, custom paper products? Sounds awesome.

Where the heck do I start?!

so you never have something print yucky anymore.

so you never have to deal with the re-prints again.

Having the ability to design virtually ANYTHING with paper, allowed me to rapidly scale my stationery business, and attract DREAM clients in the paper world.

You could keep trying to figure all of this stuff out on your own (which often takes even the most hard-working and intelligent people yeeears to do). Trust me.

You’ve got two options here…

You could steal my strategies and get massive results in a matter of weeks!

I’m an author, educator, and creative entrepreneur, who’s greatest joys are helping other creatives grow the business and life of their dreams. As an online instructor and business strategist, I’ve taught over 10,000 students how to start and grow their creative careers. And as an entrepreneur, I’ve turned my kitchen table hobby into a million-dollar creative business.

 I've had the amazing opportunity to create stationery products for celebrity clients, was named Top Wedding Stationery Designer by brides.com and featured countless times in editorial sites like Vogue, Martha Stewart Weddings, Wedding Chicks and MORE! ! Pretty cool, right?

Let me teach you everything I know about creating beautiful stationery and the paper industry. It’s time for a paper party!!

If I have a full-time job, but also want to start designing stationery at the same time, is this a good fit for me?

I’m a beginner in watercolor and I don’t live in the US so really want to know if this will be helpful for me.

Do you cover any social media marketing secrets?

Great question! This course includes over 40 pages worth of guides and handouts to go along with each module, over 5 hours worth of video courses and bonus modules, and customizable templates. These templates will be provided in .psd, .ai and Powerpoint file formats so you can add your own work and flare!

Both!

It sure will! This is not an illustration or watercolor course, this is a stationery course. So if you’re wanting to learn the ropes of stationery design and working with custom paper clients, then this is for you. All of the steps I teach will apply to a worldwide audience! Doesn’t matter where you live. A large portion of my stationery clients aren’t from the US! My design process, client communication and onboarding process, etc. will all be applicable to someone living outside of the US. For any of the legal guides, like my contract and invoicing system, you will just need to have a lawyer look over the contract you write up in order to apply your tax laws, etc. for your country or state (even cities have different tax laws). But that would only be for contracts and any sales tax mentioned in the course and every business owner should have a lawyer look over their contracts before sending them out anyway. You will still be able to apply the guidelines for writing agreements/contracts and invoices no matter where you live though, just need to go over specifics with a lawyer for your location of doing business – in the resources and vendors section of the course, I have a recommendation and contact for the lawyer I use for this who can work with you!

Absolutely! This will be included in the bonus material module of the course. The focus is on getting clients and showcasing your stationery work in a way that attracts your dream audience!

Yes! you will receive a confirmation email once you purchase the course. This will have a link to your login and dashboard, which will have all of the modules and handouts!

You bet!! That’s exactly what the private Facebook Group is designed for! There will be students of all levels in this group and I (Jenna) will be monitoring the group and responding where needed. This way I can have others helping me answer questions so your questions get answered faster!

Yes! This is a huge portion of the content. How to create and design mockups/proofs from start to finish, the client approval process and how to prepare your files for print!

If we add any bonus material our updates in the future, all students will have access to that in their password-protected portal!
