Our wedding stationer interview today is with Cassie and Christine from I’ll Know It When I See It, stationers from Vancouver, BC! I’ve had the joy of meeting Cassie at a meetup I ran in Vancouver way back, and I can tell you definitively — she’s wonderful!
How did you get started doing wedding invitations?
It began with us meeting in design school and realizing we were two peas in the same design pod. Aside from common design aesthetics, we also shared a similar cheeky sense of humor and occasional sarcastic point of view on everyday life. We started with a humble blog and designing greeting cards.
When Christine got engaged, it became clear that the vast collection of mediocre invitations already on the market weren’t going to do. With so much emphasis on the uniqueness and personality of the couple for all the other aspects of the wedding day, why settle for invitations that seemed generic and made without care? This first hand experience became the driving force behind creating invitations for all the other soon-to-be-marrieds demanding, and deserving, something better than typical. From there it’s just grown into having the great fortune of working with amazing clients who really value well-designed wedding stationery.
