Today I am thrilled to spotlight on Two Tabbies who are a Glasgow based independent creative duo specialising in bespoke wedding stationery and graphic design.
Their designs range from save the dates, invitations and rsvps, to on-the-day stationery such as table plans, table names / numbers and placecards.
I hand over to the team…
Who are you, and what do you do?
“To start at the beginning, we are Jenni & Laura, graphic designers based in Glasgow.”
“Together we are Two Tabbies and we specialise in bespoke wedding stationery – whether it’s traditional and classic, or modern and bold, or odd and unusual.
“We love it all and are wild about creating that personal touch for our clients/customers.”
When and why did you start your company?
“Two Tabbies started as a passion project.”
“Something we had talked about for as long as we can remember, as we were always helping friends and family with their design projects and wedding stationery, and we finally decided it was time to brand ourselves and make it official.”
“Being crazy cat ladies, the catchy name Two Tabbies fitted us purrfectly and gave us an excuse to get our furry friends involved! ”
“With 20+ collective years graphic design experience, wedding stationery is a great way to indulge in the more whimsical creativeness while also allowing us to feed from our knowledge of what makes a great and appealing design.”
“It also means we get to use the copious amount of fonts that we buy regularly!”
“We love listening to couple’s stories of how they met, what their interests are and what they love to do together, and use it to create truly personal designs unique to them.”
“Everyone is different and has something that sets them apart. We have great fun finding out what that is and creating something unusual and individual that means something to them.”
What inspires you and do trends influence you?
“We are constantly being influenced and inspired by the world around us, through advertising, social media, fashion, etc.”
“Although trends are not something we aspire to follow, it is inevitable that they do show up in our designs.”
“Rose gold, for instance, is especially in fashion at the moment and is something we use across our collections – let’s be honest though, it does look stunning in foil.”
“However, as designers, we always look for ways to push things further and use these influences in ways that are a bit more unusual!”
“So we mostly look outside current trends for inspiration and find it comes from all sorts of places – it could be a new font, something mentioned in passing conversation, or even the beautiful landscapes of Scotland.”
“The possibilities become limitless!”
What do you see as the future of your company?
To date, we are still a young business and we still have big plans for the future, having recently opened an Etsy shop for some of our collections and other event stationery.”
“For the moment, while we continue to build, we love the satisfaction of knowing that our brides and grooms to-be love their personal wedding stationery.”
“There’s a great sensation watching ideas blossom, grow, contort into a beautiful physical product that exceeds expectations!”
