{featured vendor} Calligraphy Katrina

Calligraphy Katrina and Maison du Papier is your go-to place for all of your handwritten calligraphy and stationery needs.  Our unique services bring back the classic beauty of hand-lettering in a modern age by adding an elegant touch of sophistication to every paper (and soon gifts items!) to complete your special event.  Katrina’s natural ability to produce such beautiful handwriting permits her to finish your project with speed and grace – for every stroke of her pen is a promise of pristine elegance only a professional calligrapher such as Katrina can bring.  Armed with a growing resume, Katrina has worked and earned accolades from numerous acclaimed brands & corporations (Mercedes Benz, Taschen, and Chanel to name a few), and online blogs & magazines (The Knot, Brides, California Wedding Day, Style Me Pretty, Martha Stewart Weddings, Utterly Engaged).  Her accumulating knowledge about her industry and craft allows her to provide excellent customer service skills that is sure to make it a most pleasurable experience working with her.  She quickly realized that calligraphy and custom stationery sets – which include invitations, menus, programs, place cards, escort cards, and table numbers, to name a few – go hand in hand with one another, and utilized this opportunity to grow. Originally starting as a calligraphy only service, Katrina has broadened her creative talents and expanded her services to include custom invitation and stationery design, which led her to start Maison du Papier (House of Paper) which offers the service of mass production. 
After writing out several of the same menus and programs out by hand, she concluded that there had to be a more efficient way to produce large quantities of these items without sacrificing quality and aesthetic beauty of the handwritten appeal; thus, the idea of mass production was born. This service allows you, the client, the opportunity to design your dream stationery set with the help of Katrina by blending different hues of color, combinations of paper textures, a variety of techniques ( letterpress printing, stamping, and the use of other special materials to embellish your set) to compliment your sense of style. Katrina works with you to create a beautiful master copy, and then uses that as a template for mass production. This allows your stationery set to be uniform and completed in record time without losing any quality regardless of quantity – whether you order 10 or 10,000,000. Our intensive quality control helps guarantee that your items arrive on your doorstep looking just as you imagined them.
