Alissa Harvey’s admiration for written correspondence began as a child, with eloquently worded letters to Santa. These letters still exist, stored in a shoebox mixed with postcards from college friends, notes from overseas penpals and loveletters from boot camp.



As an illustrator and designer of handmade stationery, Alissa hopes to evoke that sentimental feeling that comes from receiving a handwritten letter. Her Chappaqua, New York store is a curious collection of cards, boxed notes, journals and fine writing instruments that help to sustain what many consider a dying art. Read less

Alissa and the King's Scribe are just fantastic. My fiance, mother and I scheduled an appointment with her after the store closed and she took her time letting us browse through invitation books while pointing out all the custom opportunities to make them our own. She had books in different price ranges and was extremely knowledgeable of the different styles of paper products and typography. Alissa had a calligrapher write portions of our invitations along with type and designed a custom duogram and monogram for our big day. She was always available while we were finalizing details, even returning a call of mine while she was away on vacation during a holiday weekend (which was completely unexpected but extremely appreciated!) We used the King's Scribe for all our paper goods - invitations, ceremony programs, menus and cocktail napkins which allowed us to tie together the duogram and monogram in all those pieces. I've recommended Alissa and the King's Scribe to many family members and friends and will continue to do so. Truly one of the best experiences of our wedding planning process!

I recently contacted Alissa after coming across nautical themed invitations that she had done for another wedding. She was very quick to respond and was very helpful in tailoring them to fit our wedding details. I was very excited when they came in the mail as they looked very professional. Numerous guests that we sent them to have also commented on how elegant they were. After realizing that I should have ordered a few more to accommodate our growing guest list, she had no problem what-so-ever sending the additional invitations to us. I would definitely use her again and would recommend her to others!

I cannot say enough about Alissa from Mew Paper Arts. I was having a very hard time finding a wedding invitation that was different and more unique from all the routine ones you see. I just couldn't find one that fit me and my wedding theme. Then my mom started looking on a website called Etsy. We found Mew Paper Arts on Etsy and she had the most unique yet elegant wedding invitations. The one we really liked was a tea length one with hydrangeas and was primarily apple green and brown. Well we asked Alissa if she could make it more grey tones with green and black and she did it with no hesitation. She was so easy to work with and was able to match my wedding colors perfectly! Our wedding invitations were BEAUTIFUL and we got so many compliments. The best party is it is so easy to work with Alissa and she gets back to you so quickly. Then 2 weeks before the wedding we decided we wanted place cards and stickers for our favor jars. She was able to design the cards, send us proofs to pick from and then mail them to us within the week. She is truly talented and I'm so glad I found her!!

Alissa is EXTREMELY talented. I found her on Etsy and loved everything in her portfolio. I love how she captures the "theme" of the wedding. I hired her for my save the dates. I am having a fall wedding and didn't want anything fall related, but actually wanted a castle image (to represent the reception site) without anything cheesy. Everything I saw online was Disney/Cinderella.
Alissa created something classy, beautiful and unique. I started with an idea in mind about what I wanted and we worked through a few images. Then, Alissa suggested a slight change of course and it turned out perfect. She knew when to accept my specifications and when to make suggestions.
She was timely, and a good price in terms of all of the customized images she did for me (it took 12 till I found the perfect image!). She was patient and accessible. I produced extra save the dates in no time when I needed more. And she made a slight tweak when I wanted a set of save the dates for my co-workers without my wedding website information.
All in all it was a great experience and a perfect way to annouce our upcoming wedding. I would HIGHLY recommend Alissa.
