A designer at heart...
Hello! I'm Samantha, the owner and designer behind Papermints, a modern Art + Design studio specializing in personalized wall art for all of life's celebrations, and home decor inspired by everyday living.
My home studio is located in Los Angeles' beautiful Valley, where I personally work with each client to create a meaningful personalized art that will adorn their home for years to come, or as a unique and thoughtful gift of custom art.
From the nature inspired Wedding Guest Book Alternatives, typographic Custom Literary Prints, modern Nursery Birth Announcement Keepsake Prints, to our best selling Special Dates Family Prints, each one is created with love and attention to detail and with you, the individual customer, in mind.
With over 5,000 orders made within the past few years and over 800 five star reviews in my Etsy shop, I'm always committed to providing the best customer service and printing in the highest quality papers. And I always enjoy reconnecting with returning clients whom I've served from all around the world (Sweden, UK, France, Japan, Australia to name a few!) since 2002, when I first opened my design studio.
Originally from the windy city of Chicago, I currently reside in sunny L.A. with my husband, my two very active boys, and my little barker Mocha. As a graduate from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC), my career began in the publishing and editorial world, which still influences me to this day.
My work is inspired by my fondness for personalized products, focus on simplicity, geometric elements, and an appreciation for beautiful typography.
When I'm not creating and designing, a few things I enjoy are... minimalist design & lifestyle, my morning french press coffee, exploring new restaurants, spicy eats, 80's beats, cheering my boy's soccer games, and bike riding at the Rose Bowl with the family.
I hope you enjoyed browsing through my shop! Let's get in touch to create the perfect personalized art for your family and home. ♥
