About us

Hi there!  We are Sarah and Shawn Gluchacki, a husband-wife team and the founders and creative minds behind The Windmill Paper Boutique.  Sarah was the lead designer for a prominent letterpress invitation company in New York before relocating to South Florida to open up The Windmill (her designs have been featured on Style Me Pretty, in The Knot, Brides Magazine, Martha Stewart Weddings, Green Wedding Shoes, Carats & Cake, and Modern Luxury Brides, among others).  Shawn has a background in mathematics and art history, a passion for fine paper and writing implements, and a penchant for bad puns.

We were our own first clients when we got married in August 2012, and we moved to Boca Raton soon after with dreams of bringing beautiful, eco-friendly, hand-made papers and artisanal letterpress printing to South Florida.  We'll travel pretty far for craft beer and great meals, we're serious coffee snobs, and we are known among our friends to send the greatest cards for every occasion (go figure!).  When we’re not meeting with cheerful brides and designing gorgeous stationery, you can find us at the beach, trying out the newest restaurants, or riding bicycles around town - and spending every minute with our new baby boy.

When you choose The Windmill for your paper & printing needs, we serve as your personal designer, concierge, and liaison to the printer to ensure your invitation & stationery process is smooth and easy.  We close our shop for each consultation to focus our attention entirely on helping you find the perfect design.  Our focus is customer service; we are here to ensure you understand all of your options and help you choose your perfect invitation set.  We offer a broad range of papers, printing methods, and designs, as well as in-house custom design services.  We also proudly offer as many eco-friendly materials as we can (cotton & bamboo papers are our specialty!), and all of our printing is done in the USA.

We realize you have a lot of options for invitations and personal stationery, and we’d love the opportunity to show you what we can do.  We’re also always here to answer any questions you may have.  Please note, we're available in the shop by appointment only, so please call, email, or click here to schedule a one-on-one consultation.
