Owner & Lead Designer
Alaina is in 10th year as owner at Cheer Up Press and has truly found her niche in the world of weddings and fine printing. Although a self-taught printer, Alaina has always felt right at home in the print shop due to her formal background in design and printmaking. One of her favorite things about working with engaged clients is being able to intuitively capture the vision for their paper and make it come to life in unexpected ways. When not completely immersed in the world of weddings, Alaina enjoys painting, gardening, and watching her children grow even faster than her plants do.
