The last of the series to be featured this week is Atelier Isabey. This New York based company does amazing work with textures and colors to be combined in a beautiful and elegant way. They say they take the Haute Coture approach to invitations and stationary so expect everything to be unique to you and your event. This is all about custom. Margot is the great grand-daughter of the famous French Painter Jean-Baptiste Isabey and I have to post two great collections because my words are nothing in comparison to her work.
You are in luck because I just could not keep my excitement at bay for KinzeKate Invitations either. I first found her blog Something Old, Something New on-line (it’s great, add it to your daily reads now). Then upon making a laborious inspection of her website, I approved whole heartedly. Most of her designs come from a collection and the colors can be changed according to your liking. I also love that her site has a price estimator built in! (you know you have been wondering the crazy fees for custom invitations all week – me too!)
Today’s featured custom invitationer is Karisa Winkel of Pretty Handsome Designs. Of course I love the work because she uses and has mastered the letterpress, but also because of her amazing designs and artwork to boot. She manages to get the whimsical, fun, flirty, elegant and upscale attitude into the invitations. Excellent work. You can pick out a pre-designed piece or commission an original design. This is where you get to send an “inspiration box” to help Karisa understand you and your project.
I love this one because of the play on the calligraphic flourishing. Check out the website and try to narrow down your favorite to one.
