My name is Ana, and I am the owner and creator of Gold Fox Paper. I design and sell wedding stationery from my home in Houston, Texas.
I got started making invitations for family and friends that were getting married, and I fell in love with it. Telling the couple’s story through their invitations is a great experience. I love being able to design invitations that make a couple’s guests as excited about their big day as they are.
Gold Fox Paper is all about having a fun, fresh take on wedding stationery. The design elements for a wedding can really set the mood for the whole event. From the save the dates to the escort cards and programs, I love to incorporate modern design while still holding on to traditional elements.
When I design a custom wedding suite, I start by getting to know the couple and what they envision for their wedding. Where did they meet? How did they get engaged? What part of their wedding are they most excited about? Weddings in general – especially invitations – are really personal, so I make sure to get to know each client and their story.
Etsy has allowed me to connect with brides and couples all over the world. I work right here in Houston, and have had brides from London, Sydney, and all over the US. Reaching those people and being part of their special day is unbelievably gratifying.
My favorite wedding suite I’ve designed so far has been my own. It is such a challenge to design for yourself, especially for your wedding! I was able to put myself in the same position as my customers and experience the process they go through. It opened up a whole new jar of possibilities, and I’m excited to begin offering an expanded line of stationery including custom rubber stamps!
