Fine Art Stationery
from Graz / Austria

It’s wonderful that people are learning to appreciate the fine craftsmanship of calligraphy — a lost art for many years now. We’ve seen a resurgence of demand, as more and more people recognize the value of thoughtful, beautiful hand lettering. For some, it may be a tedious task, but for me, it’s a soothing, therapeutic experience. Every stroke requires full concentration and produces more than just a letter, every shape is its own unique character.

Utilizing great attention to detail and only the highest quality materials of pens, ink, artisanal paper, silk ribbons, and wax seals, a true piece of art is born.

This is how distinctive documents are created in my studio in Graz (Austria) with great attention to detail. Each of my works is unique and can be made according to your wishes. There are no limits to your imagination – together we will find the style and format that perfectly suits your event… private or business.

I attach particular importance to high-quality materials. Unique pieces are created for eternity using handmade paper, silk ribbons and wax seals. Whether individual wedding stationery, a very personal baptism letter, event calligraphy or business invitations in your corporate design – I look forward to your inquiry!
