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.

Today’s wedding stationer interview is with Genevieve Ali of Lady G Paperie, based in Westminster, Maryland! Enjoy:

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!

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

While searching for my own wedding invitations in 2009 I just couldn’t find anything that I felt suited us.  So I decided to design them myself – it helped having a background in interior design and a basic knowledge of Adobe Illustrator.  After finishing them and mailing them out – I started receiving requests from friends to design wedding and social invitations and stationery for them and Soirée Custom Paper Co. was started.

Today’s wedding stationer interview is with Reesha of Prêt à Papier, based in Dubai! Enjoy:

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

I have always loved working with paper, colour and interesting materials and this led me to pursue a Fine Art degree in Graphic Design. When my career started I dove straight into the world of corporate communication design but I realised how much I missed the freedom of working on creative projects when a co-worker asked me to design his wedding invitations. Coming from a family of entrepreneurs I always knew I wanted to do something that would allow me to convert my passion for design and entertaining into a successful business. I found myself creating personalised stationery for friends and family events, dinners, kid’s parties and eventually wedding invitations and the word spread. Now I  design wedding invitations for my clients all over the world.

Meet a Wedding Stationer in Philadelphia, PA: Thomas-Printers Invitations (11)

Today’s wedding stationer interview is with letterpress printer and co-founder of Ladies of Letterpress, Kseniya Thomas of Thomas-Printers Invitations, based in Carlisle, PA. Enjoy!

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

After graduating from college, I had a fellowship to study and work in Germany for a year. A friend and I happened to go to Mainz one weekend—that’s where the Gutenberg Museum has a working letterpress-print shop. A few weeks later, I wrote and asked if they accepted interns, and they did, so I moved to Mainz. I worked there for six months, and learned how to set type and print from guys who had spent their whole careers in print shops as pressmen, stonemen, or compositors before offset printing edged them out. It was great: the shop has hundreds of cases of type, and I could print whatever I wanted. I once printed a birth announcement for a princess, which was neat. I had no idea at the time that I had found my calling in life; even after I returned to the U.S., and realized that letterpress was happening here, I still only knew the basics of the history of printing and the craft of letterpress—and I knew nothing about running a small business. That was 12 years ago; I’ve been in business for eight years now.
