Calligraphy Inspiration: Papermade Design

It’s really quite wonderful to see how a project comes together when the design, illustration, and calligraphy are executed by the same person. In this case, Elaine Chou of Papermade Design is that person. Incorporating hand-drawn illustrations and hand-written calligraphy, Papermade’s wedding and event stationery has such a handmade and rustic charm. (Elaine chose the name Papermade as a derivative of “handmade” for that very reason.) As elements are completely customized, Papermade can tailor-make correspondence to suit your personal style! – Julie

Looking through her body of work, I’m amazed at how each project has its own distinct personality. Printed on luxe cotton paper, clients can choose from modern flat printing or traditional letterpress.
