About Me


First and foremost, I would like to thank you personally for visiting my little corner of the internet...  I am Melinda, the one-woman-show, artist/designer behind Orchids and Parchment, based in "Cowtown" Calgary, Alberta.


What is Orchids and Parchment you ask? -  It is my printable products business.  Purchase your product once, then just print what you need, when you need it.  I sell an assortment of printable greeting cards, bookmarks, tags, and more!!


After working in the print industry for a little over 20 years, In April of 2016, I ultimately decided I was stressed out and tired.  I needed something different, I needed to decompress, and I needed to figure out if I could just do what I loved and pursue it as a career.


In the middle of March of 2018, I had finally figured it out and Orchids and Parchment was born.  I decided to open an e-commerce store allowing me to have complete control over what, when, and how I created.  I can genuinely say this is my passion, and I am so grateful every day that I get to create things I love the most.  


So please visit and follow me over on social media, or subscribe to my newsletter, to watch how Orchids and Parchment, and I grow as a brand and business, creating an occupation that I could only have imagined in my wildest dreams.


You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.   -C.S. Lewis
