We are paper aficionados. We are beauty-is-in-the-details believers. We are life-long lovers of the hand-written note. But mostly, we are a local business eager to share our passion for gorgeous stationery with a community as bold as the river it lies on.

HUDSON PAPERIE opened in October 2015, when owner, Chelsey Blake took over Yes I Do, a stationery store that had been a staple of downtown Hoboken for years.  Chelsey had become interested in invitation design years earlier and began pursuing her interest on the side: working in corporate marketing and event planning by day, and managing her Etsy store by night. When Yes I Do went up for sale, she took a leap of faith to pursue her passion full-time. 

Today, Hudson Paperie specializes in custom wedding suites, working with several high-end designers such as:  Bella Figura, Smock, and Spark Letterpress, in addition to offering in-house design.

At Hudson Paperie, our priority is your satisfaction. Whether it’s wedding invitations, personalized stationery, or the perfect greeting card for any occasion – we’re here to make sure you get exactly what you need.

Our Story

Chelsey and Caitlin have had a special bond since meeting in college. Sorority sisters (big and little to be exact), turned best friends, turned roommates, turned entrepreneurs – they’ve always had the perfect dynamic. Chelsey: the dreamer, the creative, and the big picture planner. Caitlin: the doer, the organizer, and the detail queen. 

When Chelsey decided to pursue her passion for invitation design and open up Hudson Paperie, it wasn’t long before she was begging Caitlin to join in this adventure. Now, they feel like the luckiest girls in the world: working side-by-side each day, focused on creating the most beautiful wedding stationery for every client.
