I'm Lauren, the owner and designer behind Lauren Chism Fine Papers (formerly Palm Papers), a boutique stationery studio based in Dallas, Texas. With a 'less is more' approach to design, my aesthetic is clean and elegant, with a focus on beautiful type and luxurious paper. I love being a part of my clients' big (and little) celebrations, and I like to think that my passion for design shows through in every printed piece.

I started out my career in accounting and crunched numbers for five years before making the leap to run my studio full-time. After a successful first year, I made the decision to 'stay small' and changed my business name to better reflect the one-on-one relationship that I have with my clients. While I may live in Dallas, Texas, the wonderful world wide web allows me to work with brides across the country.

In addition to my own invitation line, I also have an extensive collection of designs sold exclusively through Minted, an online stationery retailer. Minted's passion for the indie designer, eye for good design, and obsession with quality makes it a perfect partnership.

When I'm not working, I am spending time with my little family: my husband, Carter, our daughter, Graycen,
and our 13 year old 'puppy', Marley.
