What's trending in paper and stationery this spring? Let's dish.
Now more than ever, good design matters. It is important. It is powerful. We need it.
The current political, environmental and pandemic climate we are living in is high stress to say the least.
We crave a handwritten, or beautifully calligraphied paper envelope in our mailbox. It connects us together, and warms our heart.
Our favorite 2020 stationery trend is handmade. Beautiful, hand torn edges on thick, heavy 100% cotton paper, an eco sustainable renewable resource.
Handmade is how we do things. Right in our Chicago studio. A place of passion, love and joy. Come by anytime and say hello. We'd love to show you what we are up to each day.
When you make something with your hands, you leave a part of yourself in the object. It means something. In our mass manufacturing world, people value an item made from love.
Another trend we love: soft, muted palettes. Yet another output of adding calm, zen, peace into life in 2020.
Neutral off whites with grey, sage and dusty blue inks - and of course inks made with eco organic vegetable dye instead of chemicals and synthetic inks.
And of course, the big trend: typography. Big, bold fonts and custom handwritten calligraphy scripts, often paired beautifully with clean, crisp block fonts.
These graphics become a personal style statement - reflecting the couple's own look. The large, oversize first names become an art icon on all the wedding stationery, from save the date to wedding ceremony programs to dinner menus and thank you cards.
Last, but not least, let's talk custom stationery pieces for each and every member of the bridal party. From thoughtful "will you be my bridesmaid" cards to "I loved her first" puppy signs for the ceremony processional down the aisle...we do!
Cheers to all the pretty paper, today, tomorrow and always.
