Emily Jane Mavridoglou, founder and designer of Dorothy Jane Design, has always had a passion for design, letterpress and all things paper.  She loves seeking out boutique shops to find unique stationery for her handwritten notes.  This began as a little girl, exchanging letters with her grandmother, Dorothy Jane.  Dorothy beautifully hand wrote every letter to Emily.  It is only fitting that Emily’s dream be named after her, Dorothy Jane, a passionate and loving woman who told Emily she could accomplish whatever she wanted to do in life (because she had the brains and a heart!).

After working in the design industry for 10 years, Emily found that she wanted to do something more meaningful in her life, something that would bring joy to other people’s lives.  Nothing made her happier than designing her own wedding stationery suite and putting it together by hand.  With a little encouragement from friends and family, Emily set out to live her dream.

Emily’s designs are as unique and personal as each of her clients.  All of her cards are handmade with careful attention to detail and craftsmanship.  Emily loves bold pops of color, polka dots and sparkles.  Emily’s a stickler for tradition and etiquette, but loves to add a personal twist in the details.  After all, she wore green shoes on her wedding day!

A graduate of the University of Notre Dame, Emily continues to work as an independent design consultant; you can learn more about her work at emilymavridoglou.com.  She currently resides in Lancaster, Pennsylvania with her husband Alex and dog Cider.
