Designer, Printer, Entrepreneur & Mommy

Hey there!

Hello there!! I’m Alexis Austin, the founder/CEO/momboss behind Curio Press. Most days you can find me in a tank top and yoga pants, in my studio, designing and printing stationery. If I’m not there, you can probably catch me exploring St. Louis with my family, cooking (A LOT), or designing our new house. 

Over the past 6 years, I have become known for creating beautiful stationery and amazing, personal customer service. Little secret? I also have an obsessive personality...but I use that to give my clients the best experience and product I can. 

I feel so lucky to give people the tools to connect with the important people in their lives and make it easy to make a great impression, whether you are sending a note or giving a gift. Stationery should convey your unique style and make an impact for the recipient! I also believe mundane tasks like jotting notes or making a simple grocery list can bring joy if the medium you use makes you feel good.

As a stationer and small business success, I have been featured by St Louis Business Journal, Saint Louis Magazine, Good Housekeeping, Brit+Co and many more! 

If you are dying to hear more, check out my Journal posts for posts about things like motherhood, living with chronic illness, clean living and of course, how to have great communication!
