As a working mother of three young children, Kate understands that there are appropriate times for exquisite engraving, and times for digital printing, and even e-mailed invitations. At all times, she loves the artistry of the product and the American elegance of traditional simplicity and design. Every design produced from the Pickett’s Press atelier is hand drawn in our studio, regardless of printing method. Kate Pickett is the ideal modern woman to take on the challenge of keeping alive the traditional processes of printing which she loves, by making bespoke stationery and weddings accessible to anyone.
