hello, i'm sameeha

I'm a mother, graphic designer, traveler, planner, and entrepreneur. I graduated from the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) in 2009 with my degree in Graphic Design and went to work in a government agency. I spent my days designing presentations, charts, and marketing materials for a few years before realizing my true passion was social stationery. So, I started to design save the dates and wedding invitations for family and friends. 

My wedding was filled with do-it-yourself crafts, and I had a blast making them. Realizing how expensive weddings were made me want to offer alternatives for couples who didn't want to be stuck with boring or difficult to use downloadable stationery templates.

So, I started The Inked Leaf in 2012, armed with an ink pen, leaf of paper, and an idea for creating social stationery as unique as the person sending it. Though my design tools have expanded over the years, my vision for custom art has stayed the same. By offering custom printable stationery options, I give my clients the opportunity to have high quality, personal designs and save money by printing at home, a local print shop, or using an easy to upload online vendor. 

I sell a variety of personalized printable designs in my Etsy shop, but also offer completely custom designs for any themes or fun and unique ideas that you may not be able to find anywhere else. Send me a note to discuss your ideas - I'm up for anything!  

In addition to social stationery, I also create custom gifts, like pet and home portraits (which were featured in HGTV magazine!) and wedding dress sketches. I also love working with small businesses in need of branding or marketing material designs. 

Thank you for visiting! I look forward to the chance to create for you.
