Hello! My name is Charlotte and I live in sunny Tauranga, New Zealand with my husband and two gorgeous daughters. Paint Press is my boutique stationery brand and I love to create beautiful wedding stationery - lovingly hand painted, a bit rustic and fun!
I love to use a range of media, primarily watercolour paints, but also pencil, ink, gouache and my computer for marrying fonts with the artwork.
Paint Press stemmed from creating invitations for friends and loved ones and as a natural extension from creating landscape and portrait oil paintings. Creating invitations and stationery for people has become a fun creative outlet for me.
I love the process of developing a wedding invitation suite from the initial ideas I get from talking to brides to the fruition of the final handcrafted goodies, ready to ship off and then finally hearing the awesome feedback, it's so rewarding!
If you are unsure what you want yet, you might find a design you love in my "off the rack" collections, which can be customised with your wording, or simply to inspire you and get you thinking about your own perfect design. View my collections here.
Although I am located in New Zealand, I can ship worldwide! Payment can be made by bank deposit for NZ orders, or via Paypal for international.
I also offer general illustration service, if you like my style, please contact me to chat about your ideas.
