Stationery Trends readers may remember B*Hands, a fabulous Korean invitation company we featured on the cover in our summer 16 issue. Their work is absolutely exquisite, and I well remember the biggest challenge we faced was which of their wonderful suites we would feature. In the end, I went with this super-creative use of laser-cutting — how amazing is that little mailable forest grove?
Now the company’s Gina has come to me with a project they have dubbed Ribbon in the Sky — named for a Stevie Wonder song. They are seeking a a blind person to work with their graphic designer to help design an invitation that will feature Braille printing in addition to their other tactile embellishments. Gina tells me that a portion of its proceeds will go to the blind designer.
   I think this is such a wonderful idea — I can’t think of a single Braille invitation I have ever seen in my 20 years of covering the industry! Gina also sent some images of just what a Braille invitation looks like. Here’s a standard invitation with the who, what, where and when of a wedding. 
And here is one with a short poem in both Korean and Braille: I love you/I miss you/I think of you/The words that I didn’t tell you once.
The invitation will be printed in English. If you are interested or know someone who would be, send an email to Gina at to get started!
