Gilded

— Stationery Trends

Evoking an artful opulence, largely banded gilded borders add an unexpected edge to the more restrained gold lettering we are used to. 

Heated and pressed, the technique used to achieve this look requires an involved process of applying gold-leaf to paper - consideration given to size and form and all adjustments made by a close eye and careful hand. Luxurious, of course, but with a bohemian free-spiritedness, this style of stationary speaks of magic nights underneath glittering stars and an open sky. 

For the minimalist bride, pair with letterpress type and raised bold script. For the wilder hearts, reflective almost of midnight love letters written passionately and in ernest, opt for a scrawling print feverishly spilling out over the page. 

Pair with black or white envelopes and postal address lettering. This is not a look to be overdone but one in which stunning gold-edge simplicity, speaks for itself.
