Calligraphy Inspiration: Wildfield Paper Co.

Today, I’m excited to share the work of  Annie Mertlich of Wildfield Paper Co. I’ve been following Annie on Instagram for quite some time and she never ceases to fill my days with amazing work. You need to see it to believe it, and I promise you she will not disappoint. Her beautiful illustrations paired with calligraphy make Wildfield Paper Co. my go-to for inspirational eye candy. If you’re lucky enough to live in or around Salt Lake City, Utah, you can even try your hand at some modern calligraphy workshops taught by Annie herself!  – Julie

Pretty Paper in the Office: Wall Organizers

When it comes to storage, it’s always a good idea to think vertically. Desk space can be taken up quickly, and when that happens, don’t forget about your walls! There are so many great wall mounted organizers on the market now, and they come in a variety of configurations and styles. Now a messy workspace won’t be your hang-up with the help of these these handy wall organizers.  – Julie

Calligraphy Inspiration: Wondrous Whimsy

This month, I’m excited to share the work of Samantha Burnett, the talented hand behind Austin, Texas-based Wondrous Whimsy. With a background in graphic design, Samantha taught herself the art of calligraphy, which was a wise decision in my opinion. Her wide array of lettering styles vary from dip pen to airy washes of painted letterforms. Her website and Instagram feed are filled to the brim with calligraphic inspiration. And while you’re at it, don’t forget to stop by her Etsy shop where you can pick up prints, custom stamps, and more. –Julie

Pretty Paper in the Office: Address Books

There are some things that are becoming increasingly difficult to come by. I know this because I was looking long and hard for an address book for quite some time. I realized it was a good idea to have a hardcopy of my contacts when I couldn’t recite phone numbers of even my closest friends. Luckily, there are still a few fun, quirky, and even classically stylish address books out there. Better snatch one up while you still can! – Julie

Calligraphy Inspiration: Graceline Illustration + Calligraphy

My favorite resource for calligraphers is Instagram. There are so many amazingly talented people out there sharing what they do with the world on a daily basis. And if you aren’t following Jenny Sanders of Graceline, you’ve been missing out! Jenny is located in Portland and hosts calligraphy workshops for everyone who wants to try their hand at the written form of art. Taking a look at her website and Instagram feed, it’s easy to see she’s more than qualified for the job! – Julie
