Hello! My name is Michelle Nicosia-Coyle and I am the owner and designer of Shelly’s Touch. Thank you for visiting my website and I look forward to working with you to create something unique and awesome for your special occasion.
How I turned my passion into a career:
I have always loved art. Growing up, I was always drawing or creating something for myself or family members. I pursued my love of art by attending the Art Institute of Philadelphia and I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Graphic Design.
In 2008, my first job was in the stationery industry. At Blue Tulip in NJ, I even got to create my very first custom wedding invitations. It was there that I fell in love with paper and knew that this was really what I wanted to do. Due to the economic difficulties of that time, the company went under a year later. Many of my first clients came out of that unfortunate situation. I was determined to help them bring their ideas to life, without adding to the stress weddings usually bring. I realized that if I was going to do what I loved I would have to make it happen myself. Shelly’s Touch was then born out of my small one bedroom apartment.
Almost 10 years later, I have the best customers in the world that I think of as family. I love paper and design and I have a true passion for what I do. I have strong attention to detail and a trained eye for color and typography which shows in all of my graphic design and event stationery.
