Full Description
I love our planet! I worry all the time about climate change, and the impact my little stationery business could have on the world, so I work hard to make sure I don’t add to the climate crisis. I do my research to source sustainably made plastic-free materials, to find eco friendly printing methods, and to reduce and reuse materials as much as possible. When you order from me, you can be sure that I have carefully considered the environmental impact of everything I do. I designed my custom wedding suites with a range of styles and wedding budgets in mind and I think they are all beautiful. But my favorite thing is working with couples to design bespoke stationery exclusively for their special day, its so exciting to have a new design challenge. I seem to work a lot with brides, so I love it when the groom gets involved too. I often find my best designs are created out of face-to-face meetings with my lovely couples. There’s nothing better than seeing your faces light up when I show you an idea that you both love.
