How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

I’ve always been creative and loved crafts. I started InvitoBella in 2011 when making invitations for family & friends became a passion and an idea for a business was formed. I was being asked to make invitations and/or event brochures regularly so I decided to go for it. Like they say, “go big or go home.” What started out as a hobby became my business!

Today’s wedding stationer interview is with Cristina Pereira, Founder & CEO of PaperStudioByC, based in Porto, Portugal! Enjoy:

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

Creating has always been a part of my life. Ever since I was a little girl that I created birthday cards for my parents. I LOVED doing it and I’d stay hours creating to stay perfect. I always thought that they could get better but I did not yet know what I should do to improve. My parents always loved when I’d gave it to them, and I always felt very proud of myself for knowing that I did something so special and unique. I was already a perfectionist and dreamer and I did not even know it yet. And these are some of the words that define me.

The wedding invitations came into my life as I began to organize my wedding. The first step was the creation of invitations and I thought it was going to be a huge challenge. After all, they were going to be our appeal to dozens of people which would receive them and enjoy them. I felt a great urge to be me doing them, I knew what I wanted and I started to create. I had some difficulties mixing colors and materials, it had several times changes until I felt it was perfect … It was that invitation that was our face and what I really liked.

After a few months of researching invitation software, printers and card stock, I started designing children’s birthday party invitations. I had my first sale on Ebay and I still remember the design and the buyer’s name. As I got more comfortable in my designs, I branched out to baby showers, bridal showers, weddings, etc.

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

The design and print industry is an ever evolving field and there was so much to learn everyday. The existing traditional framework left little scope for exquisite, innovative, revolutionary and ambitious approach to design, management and process. This prompted me to create Turmeric Ink, a design consultancy with a global outlook to design and a high end quality print shop in 2011.

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

I started doing wedding invitations after merging my loves of calligraphy, painting, and graphic design. I began traditional calligraphy practice when I was eight years old and in college I started doing more with modern and organic calligraphy, at which point I ultimately began teaching classes and taking on addressing clients once word spread about my work. After I graduated, I began experimenting with watercolor painting and digital design. Wedding invitations flowed naturally from there and Lady G Paperie was born!
