Guys, guys! Big news! I have been keeping this little side project under wraps for a while now and am delighted to finally be able to share it with you. Are you ready?

I am opening another Etsy store! Long time readers may remember my old stationery store on Etsy and I have decided to revamp my love all of things paper with a new shop focused on my handwritten typography. Namely, the shop—entitled 'The Wright Hand'—is based on my obsessive interest in hand addressing envelopes with all sorts of pretty styles and fonts. Have a wedding, party, or holiday coming up and need to send out invites or a mailing? I am your gal! Prices start at just $2.00 an envelope and I will do as many or as few as you like. Do me a favor and check out the goodness and get all the details about making a purchase here.

To celebrate the launch of this fabulously fun new venture, I am doing a big giveaway! You could win $50 of envelope addressing services (enough to do 25 envelopes!) simply by following these easy as pie steps:

one | head over to The Wright Hand shop and pick out your favorite style of envelope

two | leave a comment here with your choice

bonus | for a bonus entry (your name will be entered in the drawing twice) tweet about the giveaway with the hashtag #thewrighthand and mention my account @katiejosephson 

bonus x 2 | for a second bonus entry (your name will be entered in the drawing three times) head over to facebook and like 'The Wright Hand' post on the obsessive imagist fan page

That's it! One winner will be choosen at random next Friday, May 16! Good luck!


  1. These are great, so unique! a perfect way to add a personal touch. Now I just need someone to write the letter!

  2. Hey Katie, I'm a friend of Trina's and I'm so happy to have found your blog and shop! My fave scripts are C and K. Love your aesthetic! I'm the co-creator of the design and lifestyle blog, Little Yellow Couch and maybe we can connect on a project at some point. In the mean time, I'll be following you!

  3. Zandra, pleasure to (e)meet you! Your blog is fabulous and I would love to figure out a collaboration in the future. In the meantime, say hi to Pete!

  4. Katie, Love way you use mixtures of fonts, case, size & boldness of script & print, as well as variable spacing & small punctuating embellishments, to create wonderfully personal, eye catching effects. Hard to choose, but my favorites are the simpler block style F with outlining to highlight the names and the mix in K of large, bold Edwardian script for the name contrasted with smaller block print for the address & widely spaced numerals of the zip code punctuated w/ centered dots. Hope there'll be a reason for me to shop for special occasion envelopes @ The Wright Hand sometime soon and I'll certainly recommend your Etsy shop to friends & family who become parents of brides- & grooms-to-be as well as to those planning other kinds of parties & events.

  5. Great envelopes! I think they would be fantastic for use outside of wedding invitations as well!

  6. @katiejosephson Style F is just wonderful! #thewrighthand
