Erika Jack - Bespoke Stationnaire

It was Love at first sight! 

Searching for some holiday gift tags, I stumbled upon Erika Jack and her stunning "print meets calligraphy" graphic design style.
After graduating from the University of Nebraska, Erika put her degrees in Interior Design and Graphic Design to use by joining a Residential design firm, that also specialized in event planning. 

Then, due to a job opportunity for her husband in Charlottesville, VA, Erika found herself in a new town looking for a job.

Her realtor, knowing her background, took her by the "shelter mag favorite" And George shop, where Erika met one of the owners, Jan Roden. Erika soon had a job working on the company's web page and designing print materials for the And George furniture line.

Every now and then, Erika would dabble in making invitations for co-owner, Christy Ford's parties. One day, Christy (whose daughter is named Tulip....not kidding!) suggested that Erika try her hand at a line of stationery....and the rest is beautifully written history.

You can find Erika's work exclusively at And George


From logos and gift tags to save the dates and wedding invitations...Erika can do it all. Look at Erika's work which was recently highlighted in Southern Living Weddings

Wanting something special that you don't see on the And George website? Contact Erika directly for custom work at erika@erikajack.com.
Here's what she did for me!

And, because I want to share the Love.....I'm giving away one set of Erika's "Love" gift tags

I am a sucker for beautiful stationary and I am loving what I am seeing here..going to visit her site. I literally melt looking at a beautiful new line, its kind of a weird fettish, the type that will actually be inspried to have a party just because I fell in love with an invitation! Yes...strange but true....I love letterpress stationary as well, so classic and old world. Love it all! Thanks for telling us about this new talent:)

I'm shocking at calligraphy and it's so time consuming so these prints like they've hit the spot! :-)

Gorgeous! nothing says elegance like fine stationary and calligraphy. Love...a single, simple, 4 letter word, has such a profound impact and always brings a smile to my face.

Love these! I used some of her gift tags at Christmas, but I could always use more. Greedy? Maybe. I just describe it as addicted to style.
