Hello, I am Anne, owner of Citrus Ink.
It’s very nerdy I know, but I get ridiculously excited about paper. Paper is something we take for granted, yet it gives us such wonderful things – books, journals, maps… and of course stationery. In today’s technology laden world, paper is often relegated to post-its for telephone messages. This is why, when we get that non-bill envelope though the letterbox, it ignites such excitement.
An invitation can set the tone for an event; it is a sneak peak of what is to come. An invite should evoke a sense of wonder and excitement for your guests, whether it’s for a wedding or a fifth birthday party, a sixteen year old or a ninety year old. (Think of Harry Potter when his invite to Hogwarts arrived).
A piece of humble stationery can become so more than a piece of paper. A hand written note from a groom to his bride on their wedding day. Some thoughtful words from a soon to be granny to her daughter who is becoming a mother for the first time. A simple thank you note to a friend who was there when you needed them.
Stationery is a great way of adding fun to your occasion, from weddings and baby showers, to children’s parties and greeting cards. From invitations to place cards, from baby wishes to part invites, have your stationery stand out!
So, welcome to Citrus Ink.
Take your time; have a look around.
Hopefully you will see something you love.
I discovered and started collecting picture books when working in a bookshop. Maybe I never grew up, but I can’t resist these stories, they can be charming and witty, or deep and meaningful but they always have amazing illustrations.
I am obsessed with nail varnish. I will try any colour, and I can spend a full hour manicuring and painting my nails.
I love colour. I love all colours, from fresh minty hues or barely there blush pinks, to hot reds and glaringly bright orange.
James Jean ‘Fables’
James Jean is my favourite artist. I love his slightly weird and haunting style.
I’m a total nerd. I love reading especially fantasy and comics.
I’m a sucker for gadgets. Phones, computing, I’ve even embraced the Kindle (which was hard for page turning bookworm).
Photography is more than a hobby to me. It’s a way of sharing our memories, and of keeping loved ones close. It’s a way of connecting to the past, to times and eras gone by.
Who doesn’t love to travel? Culture, history, food, seeing new things, amazing scenery, the list goes on.
