Little background about myself: I am a Master’s in Computer Science graduate from Santa Clara University. After working for 3 years in the Bay Area as a computer engineer, I decided to move back to India. I spent a year exploring multiple things, looking for my passion in life. It was not until I married the love of my life, Vernon, who pointed out calligraphy to me since I loved to write (in beautiful handwriting). One thing led to another and I immersed myself in watercolours as well, reliving “the artist” in me. It was then in 2017 that I stumbled upon beautiful wedding invitations that were created using watercolors and calligraphy. Being an avid stationery lover since childhood, I decided to dive into this new and untouched market. It was not until mid 2018 that I started designing custom wedding invitations and stationery for brides in India and abroad.
I am not only the founder but also the creative head, designer, illustrator, photographer and social media manager of VS Calligraphy and Designs. (When you’re a solopreneur, you got to have multiple feathers in your cap ) V and S stand for the initials of my husband’s and my first names. This small but mighty business was born out of pure love for each other and passion to create something together with common interests. Vernon, has more than 10 years of experience in paper and printing. Combining my artistic skills with Vernon’s print media knowledge, we develop unique, state-of-the-art stationery.
We are based in Pune (India) but serve brides worldwide. At VS Calligraphy and Designs, we treat our brides with utmost love and provide an ultimate experience that is second to none. Each client’s requirements are understood over phone or video calls and how they envision their grand wedding. Invitations are the single most entities that give your guests a peek to the celebration of your big life event. Hence, we make sure that your invitations (digital/paper) convey it to the audience. We customise them for each bride according to the elements that are special to their wedding. Think of destination weddings where venue painting can be just the right thing to add on to the envelope liner, or incorporating that stunning motif from your Sabyasachi custom-made lehenga, or it could just be the florals from your wedding decor. The list is endless.
The elements created for the invitations are used in all the other wedding stationery items (luggage tags, welcome letter, bar signs, table cloths, pocket square etc.).
