Owner, Creative Director
Massachusetts born + bred, Shanleigh graduated from Massachusetts College of Art & Design in Boston with a BFA in Graphic Design. Soon after, she married her best friend and high school sweetheart. She now resides in the "quiet corner" of Connecticut with her husband and pup.
LIKES: travel, taking pictures (lots), hiking, binge watching shows on Netflix, diving headfirst into a good book, bargain hunting, all things gold.
Sampson fulfills his duties of being the right-hand man and emotional support system. He's always up for a walk, snack or nap. Staying true to his nickname as the "velcro dog" he's best at always sticking by your side.
LIKES: riding shotgun with his head out the window, treats, walks, playing in the snow, a good swim.
I cannot express enough how thrilled I am with the work Shanleigh has done for me. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for stationery and design needs. She is an excellent designer and truly has a gift at making ideas come alive on paper. It was as if exactly what I was picturing in my head, Shanleigh was able to make happen for me. Working with her on a custom design was easy, timely, and enjoyable. She was extremely patient and thoughtful throughout the entire process. She gave me a bunch of different options to look at for my design, and answered all of my questions (even the annoying and silly ones). As a businesswoman she is top notch; she is prompt, considerate, and extremely friendly. Of all my wedding vendors up to this point I have been happiest with Shanleigh, by a mile.
In an age where there are businesses that make stock invites with ordinary and over-used designs, Shanleigh offers an option to people to truly make their cards unique, special, yet still affordable. My invitations are truly one of a kind and working one on one with the person who designed them makes this whole experience that much more positive. Shanleigh worked with me closely to help me come up with an invitation package for my wedding that would be one of a kind, yet still in my price range. I couldn't be happier. Thank you Shanleigh!!

Shanleigh has been one of the highlights of planning our wedding. From the very beginning, she was there to support us in planning the aesthetic vision. We came in with a few ideas, and she worked with us to narrow down our thoughts to the final products. She is incredibly receptive to feedback, and was willing to make multiple edits to our proofs as we were going through the process. The way in which she was able to create three related groups of pieces, while allowing each to maintain it’s own ethos was remarkable. The materials themselves are well constructed and durable, which is important when mailing them or using them at the wedding itself. Shanleigh was also incredibly aware of the timeline and ensured that we would always have our paper goods in advance of the preset deadlines. We would recommend August & Osceola to anyone looking for a truly personal and magical experience when creating paper goods.
