Black Lab Studio was created by co-owners Stephanie Given & Zak Forbes in 2013 as an outlet for creativity that we could not let out at our boring 9-5 jobs during the day (woof).

We appreciate all things creative and beautiful, with a dash of sarcasm and humor on the side. We always strive to bring a smile to all of our customer's faces - whether it be through a quirky greeting card or custom wedding suite.  We like to keep all of our printing and production within the US and mostly within our hometown we love, good ol' Kansas City.  We think it's so important to help out the other amazing artists within our community by using them when we can for all of our printing needs.
Stephanie is the resident artist.  She prefers to start off in her sketchbook and then bring her ideas to life using a variety of mediums.  Her favorites are gouache and using her favorite old standby Prismacolor markers that she's been using since it all started.  When she's not designing she prefers to stuff her face with cheese dip, cuddle up with her pups and get in her vice of watching really bad tv shows.
Zak helps come up with the greeting card text and assists in packaging orders.  His biggest role though is definitely organizer as Stephanie tends to leave a tornado trail in the office when working.  In his down time he likes to work with wood for side projects, build displays and watch the latest horror films, screaming at the actors for not just leaving the damn haunted house.
