Born and raised in San Diego, Kaylyn moved to Orange County to attend school at Chapman University. While in school, she worked at Disneyland and met her husband, Jimmy, there! After living in Orange County for seven years, Jimmy got a dream job offer and they moved to Napa in fall of 2019. Now they are located just a few blocks from Downtown Napa and couldn't be more grateful to live in such a beautiful place. 

Our
Location

Kaylyn grew up doing ballet for fifteen years before finding a passion for baking. She had dreams of opening "Pirouette Bakery", but a diagnosis of a gluten allergy made it difficult for her to keep that passion for baking alive at the time. When she found her new passion for calligraphy five years later, she knew she had to bring the name back! Kaylyn still loves to bake gluten free goodies in her spare time!

Why
"Pirouette"?

Pirouette Paper started in 2015 after a love for modern calligraphy was sparked after a calligraphy class that was supposed to be a "just-for-fun" activity with a friend. After months and months of practicing, Kaylyn began mastering her craft and started Pirouette Paper in 2016. Since then, she has expanded her services to include a wide variety of design offerings including calligraphy, design, stationery and more.

Our
Story

Our mission is to create quality designs and product, leading with intention and mindfulness. We aim to give you the best possible product we can produce, making sure your unique story and details shine through and that you are absolutely in love with what we create for you.

We provide a variety of services including invitations, stationery, wedding and event paper goods, signage, logo and brand design, creative consulting, and more. Bringing joy and inspiring creativity through paper and ink is what we love to do most!

About Pirouette Paper

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Hi! I'm Kaylyn!

I’ve been making cards for people and doodling with letters ever since I can remember. I took a calligraphy class just for fun while in college and fell in love with modern calligraphy, knowing somehow I had to make a career out of it. I started Pirouette Paper after leaving my Disneyland princess crowns behind, and now I find so much joy in creating beautiful things for all kinds of events and occasions. I am so grateful to be able to be creative each day with my work and to be able to share my knowledge with other entrepreneurs. 

My favorite thing about working with my clients is getting to know them and their story, and designing with those unique elements in mind. I love being able to weave those details into the design to bring not only beauty, but also meaning into their project. Scroll to learn a little more about me - let’s get to know each other! 

Aside from my passion for creativity, my husband and I have two dogs that we are just *slightly* obsessed with. 

 Grayson is our little one, who is the sweetest co-worker and the protector of the house. Olive is our big puppy, who is scared to go anywhere outside but will cuddle next to you all day at home.

They are the funniest pair, constantly making us laugh and being great entertainment to us and each other. We call them our superheroes because of how much happiness they bring us, and because they were named after Nightwing and Green Arrow. I am a DC Comic nerd if you couldn't tell!

I met Jimmy while working at Disneyland and we got married in March of 2018 in San Diego, where I’m from! We moved up to Napa, CA in October of 2019 and are thoroughly loving the wine country life. We live our life leading with gratitude, lots of natural wine, puppy cuddles, and heaps of French fries.

Can I choose sparkling rosé?! I love so many different kinds of natural wine, but I am happiest with a glass of bubbly in hand!

let's play a game!

THIS OR THAT

My husband and I love sports and love to represent our teams! You'll find me in the fall parked on the couch every Sunday watching RedZone in my Green Bay Packers gear. During hockey and baseball season, I'm always representing my Anaheim Ducks and Angels, and having some love for my hometown Padres. Jimmy is a Rams and Lakers fan as well, and an Ohio State Buckeye!

Sports in
our house:

 Friends, The Office, Parks and Rec,
Princess Diaries (1 & 2, of course!),
Step Brothers, 10 Things I Hate About You, Forgetting Sarah Marshall and The Lizzie McGuire Movie. I love all kinds of movies and shows, ask me for recommendations if you need them! We're also always keeping up with Masterchef and Masterchef Jr. - the best!

I can quote
all lines of:

Settlers of Catan, jigsaw puzzles, soft serve ice cream with extra sprinkles, really good balsamic vinegar, playing “hide and seek” with my dogs, sending fun mail, going on road trips, kitchen dance parties with my husband, playing board games with friends, not-too-sweet margaritas, playing mini golf, organizing cabinets and putting together IKEA furniture.
