Ligature Wedding Invitation Collection by Paperfinger

You guys, today is such a happy day – I’m absolutely thrilled to help one of my very favorite calligraphers, Bryn from Paperfinger, launch her brand new wedding invitation collection!  Bryn is such a talented and kind lady; she created my beautiful logo that you all see at the top of the page and it’s always a treat to feature her beautiful calligraphy.  The new collection is called Ligature, and it’s absolutely gorgeous!

From BrynWe created a collection so that we could create invitations for more clients, build on new designs and offer our clients quicker turnarounds without sacrificing the significance or quality of hand-drawn calligraphy.  The word “ligature” is a great metaphor for marriage.  In type design and lettering, a ligature is the unique letterform created by the combination of two alphabet characters that are connected by a linking stroke or flourish.  The ligature itself becomes a unique and distinct character of its own, made up of the two.

Within the collection, each invitation and individual piece is hand-lettered to order (no digital typefaces!), then expertly produced with letterpress printing or engraving.  The collection will also offer edge painting and original patterned backing featuring hand painted patterns created by Bryn.  For those of you who prefer a more custom approach, Bryn tells me that she plans to continue to offer bespoke design services in addition to the Ligature collection.
