Giftast means “marry” in Icelandic.
My name is Katherine, and I run Giftast, making vegan Wedding and Event Stationery, and Art Prints, in Batley, West Yorkshire. I specialise in creating beautiful bespoke digital wedding stationery for eco-conscious couples. My process is designed to be as stress-free as possible.
After completing a degree in Illustration in 2009, I began a career combining event management, and managing the work lives and diaries of several extremely disorganised corporate leaders. My experience of running high-pressure events and diffusing stressful situations, combined with a love of creating beautiful, bespoke artwork led to the founding of Giftast.
Having worked in the corporate environment for close to a decade, I provide a high-quality and trusted service.
Together we can take your events to the next level with bespoke finishing touches, designed to help take the stress out of wedding and event planning.
I started the company in 2017, after designing my own vegan wedding stationery and taking our honeymoon in Iceland. As a result, several of our wedding stationery collections started life as paintings made on the back of postcards. I created these as we wound our way around the Route 1 Ring Road.
Giftast is a vegan business.
In 2020 I made the decision to go digital. Digital invitations are currently the most eco-friendly option available for wedding stationery, and I want to offer the most eco-friendly options to my couples.
We still offer printing services, and only use printers with Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certification, who use plant-based inks. Our wedding stationery parcels are sent by carbon neutral couriers, using recycled packaging.
We have a 100% in house recycling policy, and offer a range of recycled paper and board options.
Please contact us to discuss options for printing. Our digital packs come print-ready, so you can print at home or using a printing service if you prefer.
