Hi There! Thanks for stopping by the site! I’m Margaret, creative designer and owner of Do Tell STATIONERY and Designs.

We’ve got you covered from bespoke stationery to custom laser cut cake toppers, and everything in between! Do Tell Stationery and Designs has been in business since March of 2015.
As a true believer in everything happens for a reason,
Do Tell started when I needed it most. I did not go to school for graphic design, art, typography or calligraphy. I’m a proud alumni of the University of Central Florida, and graduated with a degree in Health Care Administration. Throughout my college career I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. I have always been a crafty, artsy person, but never thought of it as a career. So, I chose health care. After college I worked a few jobs were I learned a lot in the corporate world. At the end of 2014, I decided to make a career move and begin a career at a local hospital organization. (And here’s where the everything happens for a reason comes into play.)
I gave my two weeks at my current place of employment to start my new job right after. Within a few days of my beginning my new job, I got a call that the new position I was going to be filling had fallen through and I was jobless. My old position was already filled so I had no job to go to, or go back to. I was raised with an extremely strong work ethic by self employed parents. Not working is something I do not know how to do, and I was emotionally distraught. In the midst of applying for new jobs, I took a calligraphy class to pass the time. To my surprise, I LOVED it. I started practicing every day, sometimes all night. The artsy, crafty side of me started to emerge again and finally figured out where my passion was.
Looking back, I was so upset that my “dream job” had fallen through. But now I think to myself, what if it hadn’t? From that day forward, Do Tell was born! The last two years have evolved into learning I have even a greater passion - weddings! Which is what I hope brought you here!. There is no greater feeling than working closely with my clients to create custom stationery or details for the biggest day of their lives!
