Where stationery and fine art collide, there you’ll find Courtney Khail of courtney khail watercolors. Her luxurious range of watercolors, invitations, and stationery walks the line between graphic and handmade for a most beguiling and extraordinary effect. “Each invitation starts with an exclusive painting for my client,” she told me. “Just as no two weddings or love stories are alike, no two invitations should be either. My clients value design, quality, and individuality, and by creating artwork specifically for my clients and their event, I can insure that their invitation is truly representative of them. I then combine handwritten aspects with modern type to complete the piece. Finally, each invitation is printed twice — once to capture the elegance and variations of the watercolor and again to add the bold, raised line work my pieces are known for having — and paired with an 100% cotton envelope.” Wow!
As for her stationery, “it is made for those who wish to embrace the traditions of the past, while forging their own future,” Courtney noted. “You won’t find snark or curse words here: only beautiful cards featuring my artwork on Crane’s luxurious (and thick) 100% cotton paper. These are cards to send your most important words — those of well wishes, congratulations and thanks — to those you cherish most.”
