Hey there, nice to meet’cha! My name is Gretchen Olivares and I’m the owner and creative behind Aly Am Paperie!
I’m a wife to my amazing husband, Greg, and mother to two awesome girls, Alyssa and Amber – who were the inspiration behind the store’s name, Aly Am. I’ve lived in San Antonio since 2001 and love staying involved in my community through volunteering at several organizations. I currently serve on the executive board of ILEA, the programs committee of ILEA, the gala & committees of ILEA and NACE, a member of AAHA and founded S.T.E.P., short for South Texas Event Professionals.
Family means so much to me and it is an honor for me to help bring to life the stationery that starts your happily ever after! I love sitting down with my clients one on one to help them figure out the details that will create the vision they have for their invitations. It is so important to make an invitation informative to the celebrations detail but also make it memorable as it will be a keepsake of your very special day. That’s why our motto is “Celebrating Life’s Special Moments.”
