Behind The Brand
Your best piece of advice for event planning?
The best advice in planning for your wedding stationery is to start early! During peak wedding season, your favorite calligraphers and designers may be booked months in advance.
What was the spark for Hanwriting? Where did the story begin?
I learned calligraphy specifically to do my best friend’s wedding stationery – I just wanted to contribute to her special day somehow and thought calligraphy would be a great way to do it. After designing all of her stationery and day-of goods, I started Hanwriting (the brand definitely reflects my love for puns).
What inspires you creatively?
Nature – always and forever. I love to use natural objects as both decorative and functional pieces for weddings – rocks and leaves can serve as both place cards and unique wedding favors, and guests love how special and one-of-a-kind the pieces are.
