My name is Nika, and I’m your calligraphette.
Your guide through the process of creating your wedding invitations & other paper-y goodness.
Life as a calligrapher
I enjoy nothing more than
“running wild in my making,”
as a friend put it the other day.
Writing is always something that I’ve loved, from obsessively fine tuning my handwriting when I lived in France to picking up the pointed pen and practicing the turns and contrasts of calligraphy.
The more I did calligraphy, the more calligraphy
I wanted to do.
Mad calligraphy skills? Check.
Fancy photo quality printer in my home studio? Check.
Ridiculous knowledge of all things paper (ranging from chambray kozo to your classic crane letra)? Check.
Original ideas, not just taken from Pinterest?
You + me
I love nothing more than elucidating wedding stationery for my clients, and guiding you (oh so naturally) through this process.
By the end, you’ll almost (but not quite) wish you had my job.
I lick too many stamps.
And, most importantly, you’ll have purchased or designed an invitation suite that looks nothing like anything you see in those
big, impersonal stationery stores.
I prefer to connect with the couple as a whole, to work with your identity as a couple, your experiences together, and your vision for your wedding.
Feel free to peruse The Elements Collection:
semi-custom invitation suites made (and priced) for the modern couple.
Or, if you’d like to make something new together, let’s set up a quick phone call to get started.
I can get you a quote within a day, and paper samples in your hand almost as quickly.
