I’m Katrina, designer/printer behind Ma Joie Press. Last year was a big one for me. I graduated college with a degree in Art, I married my high school sweetheart, Tyler, and I started MJP. It’s been a crazy blur, but I’m having a great time.
Tell us a little bit about your shop:
I print for special occasions, so, the majority of my shop is wedding and baby designs. It’s so wonderful to hear from people who are expecting a baby or preparing for their wedding. It’s the happiest part of my job.
How did you get started on Etsy?
It was love at first sight for me and Etsy! I happened across the site while searching for a specific and unusual Christmas present a couple of years ago, and it literally changed my life. I set goals to start my business with hopes of having a shop someday. After I became what I considered ‘skilled enough’ in my craft to sell, I jumped in head first. It was the perfect next step – inexpensive to start up, and chock full of like-minded personalities. I can’t even count the opportunities (big and small) that have come my way through Etsy.
Favorite product in your shop?
It’s hard to pick a favorite product because I put so much time into designing them all, picking colors and printing them. But, if I have to pick, I’d probably say the “Not all those who wander are lost” print. It is just a happy reminder that, though I’m not on the same path as everyone else, I’m on the right path for me.

10 pack of folded letterpress spider mum cards & envelopes or a “those who wanter” letterpress print. I have both on hand so it is the winner’s choice!
