At Anchored Paper Co., we believe in
passionate, clean, hand-lettered designs.

We are anchored in family, faith and following our hearts.

Hand-lettering is our bread and butter

Almost all of our designs are centered around hand-lettering and calligraphy. Each piece is hand-lettered from scratch then digitized to create each piece. 

Are you interested in hand-lettering? Come to one of our workshops!

Quality is key

The design of each piece is most important to us, but in a very close second is the quality of each and every product. We use high-quality printing methods and paper stock to enhance our design.

The story behind Anchored Paper Co. 

From the owner, Carolyn Kach:

The nautical theme has run through my life since I was born, from being a submarine Captain's daughter to settling in the water-surrounded city of Seattle. Even more so, I feel as though my life has continued to be anchored in the things I value most: family, faith and following my heart. 

I was raised by my wonderful parents alongside two older sisters in various military cities across the United States. Though we are now spread out across the states (Washington, California & Virginia) they are so dear to my heart!

 I met my husband while at the University of Washington (Go Huskies!) in 2009 and we were married in 2012. His support is the only reason I am able to do what I love, thank you Nathan! We welcomed our sweet daughter, Lily, into the world this past October and we adore her so so much. We also rescued our little beagle, Teddy, in 2012 and his fun-loving (and mostly lazy!) personality is the perfect match for our family. 


So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
— Isaiah 41:10

For as long as I can remember, I have been obsessed with handwriting and the expression behind letterforms. I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Communication Design from the University of Washington where I was able to marry my love of hand lettering and design. After working in the advertising and athletic realms as a Visual Designer and Art Director, I am following my heart by pursuing calligraphy and design through Anchored Paper Co.
