About Cartamodello Papeterie

Cartamodello Papeterie was originally established in 2012 as a small, home-based design studio specialising in printable invitations and party supplies. Since then it has grown to deliver beautifully designed and printed wedding invitations, engagement party invitations, baby shower invitations, and more to happy customers around the world.

Cartamodello's design collection includes a range of styles, from classic to vintage to modern, and everything in between. Designs are customised with colour accents and tailored wording to suit every event. There's even the option to create your own bespoke collection to fit your vision perfectly (just contact me for a quote!).


Laura and Chris: a pair of dorks

Who we are...

Cartamodello Papeterie is largely Laura Munro, a freelance graphic designer from Brisbane, Australia. Her passion for invitation design started years ago when she dabbled in making quirky, unique invitations and cards for family and friends. It quickly escalated from a passionate hobby to a more-than-full-time job, and she loves every minute of working with engaged couples to create designs that echoes the unique aspects of their relationships.

Laura has a love of typography, calligraphy, both symmetry and asymmetry, white space, textured paper, cats, and dogs. She dislikes ugly fonts (Monotype Corsiva... we're looking at you!), moths, and mean people.

Laura also collaborates on business decisions with her handsome partner, Chris, who is day by day becoming more interested in design and print. He currently supports Laura in developing business and marketing opportunities, and hopes to one day join Laura at Cartamodello to become her partner in both life and work :-)
