It all started...

... three years ago. Back then, we had a lot of time on our hands and didn't really know what to do with it. Meeting friends, going out or binge-watching Netflix wasn't cutting it for us - so we discovered crafting and calligraphy/lettering. We dedicated all our time and energy to learning all about it. We were obsessed with pens and colours since the beginning of time, which is why we already owned all the necessary tools. We found ourselves creating and giving each other ideas about how we could improve and make things even better. We completely fell in love with our new hobbies and everything they had to offer.

And there we were - two people totally crazy about each other and our new hobbies, and soon the amount we produced was way more than we could give away for birthdays and christmasses. That was about the time we decided to make a little money off our nightly crafting sessions, so we applied for our first design market. Of course, as the two of us are passionate graphic designers, we couldn't live with doing this unprofessionally, so we quickly came up with a name for our crafting & calligraphy label along with a logo. Meanwhile, in another galaxy, not all that far away, we asked a very talented photographer (find him here) to shoot our products, because we're gigantic fans of his work. We couldn't wait for the pictures to arrive. Soon we had a name, business cards and beautiful pictures of our work - Books, Ink. was born.
