Today’s stationer interview is with Kristin of Brown Fox Creative, based in Fort Worth, TX! Enjoy:
How did you get started doing wedding invitations?
When I was planning my own wedding, I looked around and saw that often brides have to settle on stationery that is kind of their style, in almost their colors… and that shouldn’t be! So, about a year and half later (after I got the hang of being a Mrs.) I was watching my now sister-in-law go through the wedding process herself, and decided I could help brides just like her that wanted something personal… stationery that profoundly says we are not I, we are us, and this is what it looks like.

What is your favorite color combination?
It changes, but right now it’s coral. Coral and mint, coral and grey, coral and peach… you name it, if it’s got coral in it, I’ll probably like it.
What is the most unique invitation you have designed?
I had a bride bring me a non-invitation sample that folded from a larger square down to a smaller one, and when opened, it revealed the information for their big day(s). When fully opened, the invitation featured a perf-off RSVP postcard. Here is a link to a short video showing how it folds.
Do you have a favorite typeface?
Right now it’s euphoria script… it’s flowy and fun!
What is the most bizarre request you have received?
Instead of menu choices on the RSVP, I was asked to include options for the guests to select what type of costume they would be wearing to the wedding.
Ampersand or the word “and?”
Ampersand all the way— it’s such a fun graphic element and really adds flavor to an invitation.
Any advice for brides?
Everyone has an opinion— which is great, but do what feels right to you!
Do you offer more than just stationery?
Yes, I offer fans, cocktail napkins, puzzles, magnets, wine labels, t-shirts, door hangers, floor decals, calligraphy etc. I hate saying no to a bride, so if you have a fun request, I’ll do what I can to make it happen!
