Paper will always be my first love, and stock of this caliber only comes from one place: Crane & Co. Simply holding it is an experience. The weight and texture are as much a part of the message as any design or text printed on it. That said, the minimal elegance of the calligraphy is an art unto itself. After the initial hand lettering and digital setup, I carefully guided this invitation suite through three different print houses, each with a distinct speciality, in order to achieve the final results. Projects like these make a girl proud to call herself a Stationer.
