Our Studio


Paper Truly is a unique stationery studio located in the Appalachian foothills of Chattanooga, Tennessee, serving customers worldwide. Founded in 2009 by graphic and web designer Melissa Meek, Paper Truly prides itself with outstanding customer service and high quality paper goods. Our passion is to create beautiful, delightfully uncommon invitations and paper goods that celebrate the unique qualities of the true individual, from every day applications to life-changing celebrations.

We offer a wide variety of services from customizing existing designs to completely from-scratch ideas. Other services include addressing, wax sealing, ribbon embellishments, laser cutting, paper folding, unique paper options, foil stamping, letter pressing, and full assembly services. All of our designs are available with matching save the dates, thank you cards, ceremony programs, table numbers, menus, place cards, event signage, and more. If it’s paper we can make it, and we’ll make it match your style beautifully!

Our wedding invitations range from classically beautiful designs, to eccentric unconventional layouts catering especially to geeky and offbeat couples. We also offer party invitations and paper accessories for birthdays, baby showers, Bat and Bar Mitzvahs, holidays, and more.
