Cecily Ink - Great Portland Paper Products
Cecily Ink founder Alex Wijnen has always loved paper. It’s a medium that has inspired countless wedding invitations, gifts and custom cards for family and special occasions. As a graphic designer and owner of her own design studio (Defteling Design), printed paper has been her business for more than 12 years.
In 2006 Alex created the Fresh Style Card File as a holiday gift for her graphic design clients. The response was simply overwhelming: clients clamored for more of these beautifully functional card boxes for their family, friends, and colleagues. A new business was launched.
The name Cecily honors Alex’s grandmother Ceciel – a name that has been passed down through a family filled with strong, creative women. Design-savvy, hip and bright, Cecily Ink’s products are a reflection of Alex’s Dutch heritage and years growing up in Northern Europe.
Cecily Ink was born from a life-long passion for modern, elegant design and everyday beauty. A personal favorite is the Fresh Style card file. You get 12 exquisite handmade cards for only $25.00. Apparently it is actor Dennis Quaid's favorite too!
