Based in central Cardiff, Fir and Gold was founded by illustrator Layla Holzer. With a First Class Illustration degree and MA in Art and Design under her belt, a background in exhibition and editorial illustration, and an obsession with the natural world, folk art and whimsical love, Layla is an illustrator on a quest to create fresh contemporary wedding stationery that is beautiful, quirky and unique.
Every single design has originally started as a hand-created illustration, either painted using the finest watercolours, gouaches and inks, or painstakingly cut from paper and card and then layered into imagery. Created completely in-house, you will not see our designs anywhere else!
Once finished, these illustrations have then been digitised and paired with stunning, modern typography before being printed onto either tactile lightly-hammered gesso card or softly-finished smooth card. All of our stationery is printed onto FSC certified cards/papers.
We can personalise our stationery with your wedding details, and we offer several selected suites with different options to suit you as a couple. Each customer order is worked on individually and we pride ourselves on our attention to detail and high quality customer service. We really love creating bespoke wedding stationery and paper-cut gifts, so if you are looking for something extra special and completely individual, please contact us to discuss our bespoke services. We cannot wait to work with you!
