Ciarra Claire is an illustrator and calligrapher located in Petoskey, Michigan. She specializes in hand-pressed and printed wedding stationery. Her eye for colors and textures combined with locally-sourced materials ensures luxury quality products for her clients. Ciarra’s art speaks for itself. It’s timeless, romantic, nostalgic. Basically, it’s the Kate Middleton of stationery.
In recent years, wedding stationery design boomed in the wedding planning process. Bespoke designs and hand-drawn calligraphy are intimate, creative touches to stationery for an elevated look. Photographers and videographers aren’t the only ones with a storytelling ability with their art anymore. As a result of social media, the same can be said about the imagination and craftsmanship behind stationery designers like Ciarra.
Dedication to her craft sets Ciarra apart from others. She takes something as simple as stationery and creates an experience. First, imagine the press creaking and watercolor paint sweeping along ridges of the paper. Then close your eyes and feel wax seal warmer’s heat. Smell the wax pouring onto the page. Feel the heaviness of the brass stamp. Every cut and stroke intentional.
In addition to creating customized stationery for wedding clients and supplies for other artists, Ciarra also offers private and group workshops for calligraphy and watercolor painting. Ciarra’s work is published in Style Me Pretty, Martha Stewart Weddings, and more.
