The Paper Guppy was started in early 2004 when several of Maura’s engaged friends approached her with the same request “Can you develop save-the-date cards, wedding invitations and thank you notes that coordinate with my wedding and are unlike anything my guests have seen?”. With initial designs for a tropical destination wedding, fall New England wedding and summer mountain wedding complete; and requests for bridal shower and engagement party invites, The Paper Guppy was well on its way. She has now fallen in love with working with brides to be, as their passion for creating the perfect day helps to fuel her creativity.

Maura has over 16 years of extensive graphic design background with a concentration in print. She graduated from Syracuse University, Newhouse School of Communications with a bachelor’s degree in visual communications.
