Hello, and welcome to the Caterham Co. studio! We're a bespoke wedding stationery and paper goods design studio in South Africa.
Using my love of illustration, watercolour, ink, and calligraphy, I capture your love on paper to create an enchanting glimpse into the atmosphere of your big day.
We specialise in fine event stationery—from the initial design and artwork illustration, calligraphy or hand-lettering, all the way through to the final finishing details. Whether printing in-house using digital or screen-printing, and die-cutting, or outsourced letterpress and hot-foiling for an extra luxurious feeling, I make sure your paper goods dreams are fulfilled to our fine stationery standards.
Caterham Co. is based in the Karoo town of Cradock in the Eastern Cape (although I regularly make trips to the major city centres to meet with my lovely clients!).
As for me?
I'm Catherine, owner, graphic artist, and calligrapher behind the Caterham Design Co. studio.
My journey in the visual arts began as a lifestyle and documentary photographer, where my interests led me to capture other people's lives and passions.
My love of paper + ink, however, led me to return to school, where I studied Graphic Design at the University of Cape Town. It was here that I discovered calligraphy and hand-lettering and soon found myself surrounded by piles of paper with ink ingrained into my fingertips and deep in my heart.
Caterham Co. was born after graduation, and since then I've had the honour of capturing my delightful couple's unique love in paper and ink.
I've since branched out to develop my own fine stationery ranges, quirky greeting cards, and curated art print collections too!
