My name is Katherine, and I run Giftast, making Wedding and Event Stationery, and Art Prints, in Batley, West Yorkshire.
After completing a degree in Illustration in 2009, I began a career combining event management, and managing the work lives and diaries of several extremely disorganised corporate leaders. My experience of running high-pressure events and diffusing stressful situations, combined with a love of creating beautiful, bespoke artwork led to the founding of Giftast.
Having worked in the corporate environment for close to a decade, I provide a high-quality and trusted service to help couples and events coordinators.
Together we can take your events to the next level with bespoke finishing touches, designed to help take the stress out of wedding and event planning.
Giftast means “marry” in Icelandic. I started the company a year and a half ago after designing my own wedding stationery and taking our honeymoon in Iceland. Several of our wedding stationery collections started life as paintings made on the back of postcards, created as we wound our way around the Route 1 Ring Road.
What does Giftast do?
I create personalised Wedding and Event stationery, from Save The Dates to On-The-Day. We also offer complimentary services such as bespoke design, pet portrait commissions and gift prints.
I specialise in romantic, personalised wedding stationery, designed to make your wedding planning less stressful.
As a big fan of romantic novels, I like to take inspiration from characters and authors of my favourite books.
New for 2019 – Our Jane Austen collection, which offers a range of prints (coming soon!) and stationery tailored to each heroine. I’m really excited about sharing it with book-lovers everywhere who are planning their special day.
I also work hard to make the company as green as possible. I only work with printers who use 100% vegetable inks and have a 100% recycling policy.
