Maria Clinkenbeard, Owner & Designer
Owner, Maria Clinkenbeard, envisioned creating a custom announcement and design studio back in 2003 while making hand-drawn note cards in her dorm room in Oxford, Mississippi. After graduating from the University of Mississippi in 2006 with a degree in Graphic Design, her passion for paper grew. The desire to advance as a designer led to several opportunities, which prepared her to follow her dream and open the doors to Green Bean Paper Company in 2013.

Prior to establishing her homegrown custom announcement and design studio, she worked at one of the Southeast’s leading advertising agencies, The Buntin Group, in Nashville,TN. She also spent time working at Southern Living Magazine, in Birmingham, AL, and as an intern at Hatch Show Print.

Maria’s past experiences combined with her desire to turn special occasions into cherished memories, are the perfect combination for creating thoughtful custom designs with memorable embellishments.
