Who is Pretty in Print?

Hello! My name is Ann Gancarczyk and I am the graphic designer and creator of Pretty in Print. I specialize in print design, specifically for paper goods for weddings and events because I think there is a need for more creative design solutions in Germany. I put emphasis on creating visual concepts for events and not just stand alone single products. I aim to provide my customers in Berlin and throughout Europe with highly creative ideas, professional printing and top quality service.

My Background

Graphic Design was a natural direction for me to go in, as I was constantly drawing as a kid. I graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with a bachelors in Graphic Design and have been working as a designer in Berlin ever since. In addition to years of ballet and violin training, I have always loved crafting, collaging, baking and taking photographs.

Originally from a suburb outside of Philadelphia, my home away from home has been Berlin since 2005. I came to Europe for love and my husband and I just can't seem to find a reason to leave Berlin even though my family is now spread across 4 countries and 2 continents!

My Experience

I have been working as a graphic designer since I moved to Berlin and I truly love my profession. Over the years, I have gained a great deal of experience in print design, where the main focus of my work has been. I have worked on diverse design projects including logos, flyers, city maps, magazines, packaging and advertisements. Through positions as both a graphic designer and an art director, I acquired very essential marketing, editorial and management skills that I apply to my job every day.

What Sets Me Apart

I started my business so that I could use my skills to help create weddings in Germany and Europe that are colorful and visually tantalizing experiences! My goal is to offer unique solutions to my customers and above all else, to provide excellent customer service. A bride and groom has enough to worry about when planning a wedding and I want our collaboration to be efficient and enjoyable.

My Aspirations

My hope is that more and more brides and grooms will think of their weddings as visual experiences for their guests. It is a way for a couple to communicate a range of emotions and ideas to their guests. A wedding is not just about the location you choose, it is also about flowers, the cake, music, table decorations and of course, the paper goods. The more interest a couple shows in crafting their wedding experience, the more their guests enjoy and remember it.
