Wedding Invitation Suite Design
Hand Lettered Calligraphy
Haint Blue Collective was established to streamline the process of completely custom items for weddings and events. The company distinguishes itself by creating paper, lettering and signage all in the same place, strengthening the cohesive design of your event.
“Haint Blue” – rooted in the south, the company name is derived from the tradition of blue porch ceilings
“Collective” – representing the distinctive offering of paper, lettering and signage as a branded unit
Originating in the south, families would paint their front porch ceilings blue to deter “haints” (visitors from the past) from their homes. The blue signified both heaven and water, places where these uninvited guests were unable to access. In modern times, it can be a nod to southern heritage and a more practical benefit is some southerners say it diverts dirt-dobbers! The tradition continues as both a playful practice and homage to southern roots.
