Crystal Kluge Hand Lettering, Illustration, and Fonts

Crystal Kluge Hand Lettering and Illustration

As a huge hand lettering fangirl and general fontaholic, I am so excited about the work of Crystal Kluge. Her work is whimsical, inspirational, and just all around magical. From her hand lettering to custom lettered and illustrated maps to illustrations, everything is a must see. And the great news is that you can have a little piece of her work for yourselves in her fonts, available at MyFonts and Font Bros.

You can see Crystal’s work in her portfolio or at her blog, Tart Workshop. Here’s just a sampling below:

Eco Friendly Paper : Mariella Designs

Eco Friendly Paper
Mariella Designs Note Cards

Mariella Designs carries so many pretty, artistically designed cards that I had a really hard time deciding on my favorites. I’ve featured several here, but you really must see their website to get a feel for the depth of their work.

Not only are the cards lovely, but they’re also eco-friendly, printed on recycled paper with soy based inks. Mariella is working on a shopping cart for their site, which should be up by early June, but you can find their paper goods at Anthropologie, Paper Source, and several online shops. More pretties:

Crankbunny Popup Cards

Crankbunny Peacock Popup Card

Aren’t these popup cards by Crankbunny just absolutely magical? I got a sublime sense of nostalgia when I first looked at everything offered in Crankbunny’s whimsical shop.

All of the cards and creations in the shop are handmade and illustrated by Crankbunny. Just amazing!
