We do what we love. You'll love what we do.

At Platypus Papers, we transform our love of all things paper into your dream stationery. That “beaming with joy” feeling when your stationery perfectly reflects your personality? That’s what we do.

We specialize in creating custom wedding and event stationery and personal decor that reflect your unique style and taste.

We also make designs from unexpected combinations of materials, but Platypus Papers and Woods and Fabrics and Metals and Plastics and Everything Else wouldn’t fit on our business cards.


Laney Hall — Paper Addict, Designer

Laney is the fairy godmother of stationery — tell her what your heart desires and she’ll make it happen, just like magic.

Short and sweet, she is a serious paper addict.

She thrives on creativity, using paper and a host of other materials to create beautiful, one-of-a-kind stationery and décor items.

A Colorado native, she finds that a little silly, a lot of craft and experience, and a ton of laughter add up to stationery fit for a fairy tale.

Joel Hall — Paper Dude, Maker

Formerly a software engineer and bus driver, Joel’s true passion is making; he’s into technology and enjoys working with tools like 3D printers, CNC routers, and laser cutters.

Precisely as short as Laney, and no less sweet, Joel sees every stationery and décor puzzle as a challenge to be met with creative problem solving.

He brings an engineering mind and an “if you can dream it, we can achieve it” attitude to Platypus Papers.


Laney & Joel

Together, Laney and Joel love attending musical theater, going to museums, and taking classes to hone their skills.

When they’re not at home (or work), they can be found exploring Colorado, on the shores of Grand Lake, at Disney World, or traveling the world.

Together Laney and Joel are parents to two fur babies — a lab mix and a corgi — and several thousand bee babies.

Yes, they have a small apiary (a collection of beehives) in their yard.

Come on in and play with us, we'd love to see you!



I worked with Laney and Joel at Platypus Papers on several occasions. Their commitment to their clients is extraordinary. They use a consultative approach, ensuring they understand the clients’ vision. They want to be the best, so they also offer creative ideas and solutions to enhance the projects and work within the required budget. They are unbelievably hard working, super friendly, and an absolute must to work with.

Laney and Joel are my absolute favorite to work with. They are so quick and efficient, I can not recommend them enough to my friends who need printed goodies! I have worked with several printers and their attention to detail and amazing customer service is over the top. They are able to meet every and all of my crazy deadlines and I could not be more grateful. Another thing I love about them is that they can pretty much do anything, from designing, to printing, to laser cutting all sorts of materials. Any time I have a crazy thought pop into my head, I automatically call Laney and Joel, because I know they will be able to help me execute the project. If you use Platypus for any of your projects or creative designing, you will be nothing but impressed with their professionality and talent.

Working with PP was a dream! Being a bride and planning a wedding can be extremely stressful but we had one major aspect off my plate working with this husband and wife duo. From the save the dates, the invitations, our menus and seating charts, Laney took our vision and style of our wedding “theme” and truly tied all the elements that were important to us together into the stationery design. All aspects of the stationery complemented each other perfectly and consistently. The main colors we wanted incorporated were golds and greenery. Each component mirrored each other and that was extremely important to us. Laney even incorporated a snowboard into our wedding “logo,” as my husband is in the snowboarding industry — the final design was BREATHTAKING and my husband and I really felt that our invitations showcased both of us individually and as one. I have the invitations framed in our home and we will be forever grateful for Platypus Papers and to this day call them friends!

If you’re looking for a company that not only provides the upmost professional, CREATIVE, and thoughtful designs…but truly cares about the stationary elements that are important to you for your big day, look no further! Platypus Papers will leave you feeling at ease with one less aspect on your to-do list; as they truly care about every aspect involved when it comes to any stationary need you have. With many companies out there, I would recommend PP due to their years of experience, knowledge, and because you can really count on them to produce the highest quality and trustworthy designs — they can do really it all!! This husband and wife duo live and breathe their work and their passion truly shows.

Max and Livie

Amazing! That’s always the thought that comes to mind when I work with Platypus Papers. They are amazing both in the product they deliver and the experience of working with them. When it comes to custom wedding stationery there are many companies that talk a good game, but not many that can deliver. Laney and Joel truly have a creative gift when it comes to designing and producing unique wedding pieces. I’ve worked with them for many years and my clients are always so impressed!
