My name is Katherine, and I run Giftast, making Wedding and Event Stationery, and Art Prints, in Batley, West Yorkshire.
Giftast means “marry” in Icelandic, and I started the company a year and a half ago after designing my own wedding stationery and taking our honeymoon in Iceland, a country I fell completely in love with.
What does Giftast do?
I create personalised Wedding stationery, from Save The Dates to On-The-Day, and also offer complimentary services such as bespoke design, pet portrait commissions and gift prints. My mission is to create products which are both beautiful, and affordable to most budgets.
We had a shoestring budget at our wedding, and I DIY-ed a lot of it which took up so much time – my goal is to help take that stress from couples who are planning their weddings, but in a way that doesn’t break the bank.
As a big fan of romantic novels, I like to take inspiration from characters and authors of my favourite books, to imbue that warm, romantic feeling into what is surely the most romantic day of a person’s life.
