Sweet as pie and smart as a whip. That’s how we would describe the talented lady behind Caroline Fausel Paper Co. Focusing primarily on custom wedding invitation suites, she is also venturing into template wedding invitations to help drive costs down for budget-friendly brides. Genius. It was such a pleasure to have Caroline on board for the 1st Savannah NotWedding.
“Caroline is such a joyful spirit with an amazing go-getter attitude! She works hard to make your design come to life on paper and is a joy throughout the whole process. She has such a creative eye and mind to add just the right personal touch to the paper products and accents for your big day!”

Short description of your business
Caroline Fausel Paper Co. is a stationery shop that specializes in custom and template wedding invitation suites.
Why do you do what you do?
My goal in life is to love myself and love others. I knew I’d get the most joy out of my profession when it was doing something I couldn’t live without that also helped others. Designing has been just that for me. My love for design, pretty paper lovelies, and loving, lasting marriages is what made owning my own wedding stationery company my dream. I am so thankful that this dream can be my day to day!
How did you get into paper design?
When I was trying to decide which major to choose, I looked at every single option that the University of Georgia offered. I have so many passions, so I was torn in a million directions. I thought about when I was happiest, and even since I was a little girl, it has always been when I was creating. I knew I had to choose something I loved, which led me to Graphic Design. I have always gravitated toward stationery design, especially wedding paper goods. When I had my precious little girl Ella two months early, the need to stay home with her jump-started my dream of owning a paper company.
What is the best thing about owning your own business?
The biggest perk to owning my own business is the flexibility of my workspace and schedule. Truly the best part of my job is that I get to work from home and be a part of every moment of my sweet little girl’s life. One moment I am having an initial consultation call with a bride, the next we’re walking to the park and playing on the swings. It’s very freeing and empowering being able to do so many things that I love to do.
Where do you see your business in five years?
Designing wedding paper goods has been the perfect start for my company, but it’s just the beginning. In five years I’d love to be creating all varieties of paper goods: invitations, stationery, greeting cards, prints, and more. Another huge goal of mine is to sell my products in local stores- so keep your eyes peeled! 🙂
What is your favorite part of The NotWedding experience?
Hands down my favorite part of the NotWedding is the friendship and community I built with the other vendors. Spending so much time with other creatives who share my passion for weddings was such a blessing!
