Made to Keep® was started in 2006 when owner, Melissa Miller, was attending The Art Institute of Philadelphia. She began designing and retailing handmade greeting cards in stationery boutiques in the city and she transitioned the business into custom invitations in 2008 after realizing her true passion and love for stationery and now specializes in invitation design & event stationery.
Melissa, 32, is the owner and lead designer for Made to Keep®. Her passion of creating unique invitation designs for every event and customer has grown over the last 7 years with almost 1,000 different designs created. She loves wine, barre class, traveling, dancing, country concerts and spending time with her friends and family. She loves to hear clients say, “you really made our vision into reality” and is grateful to all of our customers for the opportunity to do what she loves every day!
Bitsy McCann, of Bitsy Plus Design, has created over a hundred logos and brands, more than a thousand print pieces, and a healthy handful of websites and online designs. Though she owns her own business, she loves partnering with Made to Keep to help Melissa's clients reach their marketing goals. She enjoys craft beer, spending time with loved ones, and playing in her indie folk band, itsy&im.
A Harrisburg native, Rebekah Campbell discovered a love for art as a child. She grew up admiring the work of her grandmother, watercolor artist Jeanne Hartman. She later studied under local artist Victoria Goodhart. With over seventeen years' experience working in the sign industry, Rebekah developed skills in graphic design, project management, print and production. Her favorite projects are those that include graphic design, and also rely on her fine art background. She and her husband Andy love to explore new places; but are proud Midtown Harrisburg residents, who also enjoy keeping it local.
