"We take great pride in offering beautifully unique materials, the finest print finishes and an array of curated colours to create an invitation that will become an heirloom."
HOW DID YOU GET INTO STATIONERY DESIGN? I went to College for graphic design, but didn't learn calligraphy until five years ago as a hobby. I always wanted to run a small, boutique style stationery business so this is an absolute dream come true.
ARE YOU SELF TAUGHT OR HAVE YOU DONE SOME TRAINING? For calligraphy I am self-taught, but I did got to College for graphic design which definitely helps with the stationer side of my business.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE? Modern, romantic, clean and organic.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB? I love the creative outlet and I love the flexibility of running a creative business.
WHAT YOUR DREAM WEDDING BE LIKE? Oh that's a tough one! Anything with amazing vendor friends is always a joy, beautiful flowers and lots and lots of paper.
ASIDE FROM FAMILY & FRIENDS, THREE THINGS YOU CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT? Coffee, coffee and (embarrassingly!) Netflix
WHERE WOULD WE FIND YOU ON A SUNDAY MORNING? Church and then home!
