A luxury wedding invite and stationery business using the traditional method of hot foiling.
Founded by Cathy McCarthy, based in the UK.
With my background in Web & Graphic Design, I chose to create my own invitations for our wedding five years ago. I was keen to try a more traditional craft, craving a more hands-on design process. I found this approach really enjoyable: from choosing ink colours from swatch books, to the tactile process of selecting card stock and putting the finishing touches to a suite of wedding stationery that defined our day. We even used a vintage letterpress alongside watercolour paint to produce our stationery.
Some time later, I discovered the art of hot foil printing with a traditional style hot foil platen press. It sparked an interest in me to combine these old-school techniques with the modern digital design processes involved in creating the stationery designs of today. I knew this mixed media would enable me to produce a broad range of unique designs. An investment in a press and some reels of foil later, my vision of To Have And To Gold was realised.
My collection covers a range of wedding styles, from minimalist to those with a distinct theme. They are fully customisable with your own names and details. I also offer a design service for completely bespoke wedding stationery suites, allowing you to tailor them to your overall wedding style.
I am based in the UK but ship worldwide.
