“There are three responses to a piece of design—‘yes,’ ‘no,’ and ‘Wow.’ ‘Wow’ is the one to aim for.”


—Milton Glaser


How We Began

Meet JanelleMy name is Janelle, and I am the owner and designer behind BEYOND PAPER & INK. My story began over a decade ago when I began interning at a small print shop. I learned how to create things on the computer. Then, I would send them off to the press for print and anticipate for the final product. It was amazing to see my designs on screen transform to wonders paper. The feedback from customers was always exciting and a big incentive to keep going. I had discovered my love for graphic design + printing, and I had fallen hard.

After several years in the print shop, I decided to start my own business from home so I could be there more for my two children, have a more flexible schedule (haha!) and pursue my passion. Beyond Paper & Ink was created in 2010 and offers an array of printing and design services. The design and print services have become more focused now, but the friendly service is still the same. The business name: Beyond Paper & Ink was inspired by my customers that were repeatedly telling me how much my designs went above and "beyond" their expectations!

Other Design + Print Services

As a graphic designer, I also design stationery for businesses, and events, as well as, product labels and packaging design. These items are still created on a project-to-project basis, so feel free to contact me regarding your needs. Let me transform your vision into a memorable design that goes Beyond Paper & Ink.

A Little More About Myself...

When I'm not dreaming up new designs, I enjoy playing soccer with friends, spontaneous road trips in the country with my wonderful and supportive husband (aka my office sidekick) , playing classic board and card games with my kiddos, and collecting treasures of rusty "junk" to decorate my home.
