Gatlin Paper Co. is a design studio in Atlanta, GA, in the business of telling great stories through quality design. The studio ventures to equip small business owners with rich visual identity systems, as well as, provide engaged couples with a personal approach to choosing wedding stationery.

GPC is owned and operated by Nicole Gatlin. She holds a degree from Seattle Pacific University’s Art Center, studied at the Flint Institute of Arts, took courses through Hollander’s School of Book and Paper Arts, and worked in Public Programming at the High Museum of Art, Atlanta.

Born and raised in small town Michigan, Nicole learned early on the value of a hard day's work, the importance of community, and the beauty of a sunset after a day on the lake. For years she searched for fulfillment in her career until the day she found a dusty old letterpress with a broken arm in the basement of the store where she was working. A couple of years and cross-country moves later, Nicole founded Gatlin Paper Co. Her deep fascination with the intersection between traditional processes and modern design continues to grow.

Nicole fully believes that there is something worthwhile about intentional, slow-cooked, quality design, and she desires to bring this intentionality to your business, brand, wedding, or idea.  

I couldn’t ask for a more creative, organized and all around amazing person to collaborate with. Nicole takes your ideas and doesn’t only make them real, she makes them 10 times better than you expect. I continue to be blown away by her talent and grace.
