Harvey's Passion Turns a Profit in Chappaqua

Alissa Harvey, the owner of King’s Scribe, Chappaqua’s newest and most innovative stationery store, has been featured on 60 Minutes, Martha Stewart and in The Knot Magazine for her stationery perfection -- but she didn’t always dabble in this particular art form.

“I used to work in corporate real estate and I made cards for people in my office,” Harvey said. “Then I got a website on and eventually worked full-time from my home office.”'

Harvey quit the corporate grind and created Mew Paper Arts , her own stationery company, through four years ago.

She said she always had an interest in art and illustration and that she designed individualized cards for her friends in different dorms at the Fashion Institute of Technology in Manhattan.

Through Mew Paper Arts, Harvey has crafted wedding invitations for couples in Canada, Ireland, Scotland, Australia, Singapore and Kenya.

This spring, Harvey decided that she wanted a store where she could build a local connection to “revive the art of written communication.”

She moved into her store, The King’s Scribe at 1 King Street in Chappaqua on May 1 and offers a wide variety of fine stationery. The King’s Scribe sells cards for any occasion, custom stationery, business cards, gifts and event invitations.

“There was a missing service here and I feel like people didn’t have a local destination for these types of things,” Harvey said.

Harvey also designs and creates handmade custom cards and invitations for any occasion from a cocktail party to a Bat Mitzvah. Harvey sells stationery designed and created by local artists as well.

“There are things I’ve learned about myself,” Harvey said. “I know I have to be creative, if I’m not making art some way or another, I’m not happy.”
