We are thrilled to introduce Pickett’s Press, a wonderful line of personalized stationery, gift stickers, gift enclosures, invitations and more. We love the pretty styles, designs, colors and uniqueness of this intrinsically sweet and charming line. Initially, we are offering the Pickett’s Press digitally printed options but in the coming months we will be adding a selection of more invitations and exceptional engraved products.
Designer Kate Pickett says she creates designs for the modern woman who appreciates chic and fabulous design work. She explains, “We offer the oldest printing methods steeped in tradition and elegance. Our products have a dedicated following and our customers expect and appreciate our unique artwork and fabulous quality.” Her discerning clientele trusts her recommendations and designs. Kate has a true love for illustration which resonates with a modern audience.
Her motifs and designs reflect an updated style combined with a modern printing technique which makes her items accessible to many budgets. All the art is drawn by hand, with pen and ink, hand-rendered and personalized. There are no tablets or computer programs in her studio, regardless of printing method, which is a unique process. Her designs provide elegant yet simple artwork featuring the true sophistication of the brand.
Kate was classically trained at the Student Art League of New York, and in private classes with the founder of the Children’s Art League of New York. At a young age, her work was recognized for it’s commercial appeal when she was commissioned to create designs for the American Folk art museum gift shop. She continued studying Studio Art at Harvard, as a minor with Art History as her major. Her background gives her unique insight into both traditional etiquette and artistic style.
Putting herself through Harvard College business school gave her an understanding that good taste should fit any budget and that style is not limited to affluence. As a working mother of three young children, she understands that there are appropriate times for exquisite engraving, and times for digital printing.
