I am Katie Decker McNamara, owner & creator of the work you see
here at Paper City Design. I'm from west Texas but have been making
a good life in Brooklyn for 7 years. I started Paper City Design in 2008
as a place I could get my hands dirty making cards & invitations by hand
in the evening while I worked a day job in the print design world. I'm no
longer working the day job for big brands but I still take on client work
when it's a perfect fit.
I love to travel & explore our city with my history-teaching, beer-brewing husband & wild-man toddler. Nothing thrills me more than a long hike &
a swim in the ocean. I suffer severely from wanderlust.
I love my work. For me, there is nothing more fulfilling than making
beautiful & useful objects. Craftsmanship is of utmost importance with all
of my Paper City Design goods but with anything handmade you will see variation in the objects; I love this about my work and hope you do to.
