Kristen Desrosier
Kristen Desrosier has been with LCI Paper Company since 2009 and is responsible for all things creative at LCI – product photography and design, blogging, and her personal favorite, writing DIY invitation tutorials, to name a few. You’ll also find Kristen throughout the LCI website starring in many of our product and tutorial videos, and like all LCI staff members, spending time assisting customers. Kristen has several years of paper, design, and printing experience, and enjoys sharing her knowledge with those interested in DIY design. She believes that given the right information, everyone is capable of making polished, professional looking stationery. The best part of DIY design, she says, is admiring the final product and being able to say I made this – but the best part of the job is providing the information needed to pass this feeling along. When Kristen is not at work, she enjoys reading, working out, and heading to Maine to visit her family. You can follow Kristen on Google Plus or Twitter!
