Tell us about your company and how you got started.
My parents owned a print shop when I was a kid, so I grew up in that world. I like to say my coloring sheets were gold foil and thick card stock. I’ve always been into fine art, especially oil painting, and when I picked up calligraphy in 2016 I started making wedding invitations using those two skills. I have an obsession with the highest quality papers, like handmade cotton rag, and little details like wax seals and silk ribbon.
Romance, elegance and minimalism combine in this gorgeous calligraphic invitation suite, brought to us by Los Angeles based stationery designer KidGolightly Calligraphy! Here’s more from KidGolightly:
What inspired this stationery design is a particular scene from Breakfast At Tiffany’s – it was the telegram she received (although the news was a bit sad). So, I wanted to create a design that almost resembles a 1950s telegram. Taking that inspiration and putting a modern twist to it, making it a bit more minimalist in structure and assuring its simplicity to stand the test of time.
