Here at yegwed, we LOVE custom designs – any vendor ready to celebrate the individuality of each of their clients is an edmonton wedding rockstar in our eyes. Nicole Bolton, owner of Glossie, fits the bill perfectly. Her passion is designing ‘real invitations for real people’ and she works hard to personalize each paper creation to perfection. We had a chance to talk to Nicole about herself, her business and what she loves about edmonton – we’re stoked to introduce her to you!
Tell us a bit about yourself!
I’ve been a graphic designer for almost 8 years and I recently became certified (CGD). I have 3 cats, a dog and an amazing fiancé. When I’m not working on my custom designs, I try to spend a lot of my time outdoors. I recently took up mountain biking and I love to find new trails around Edmonton.
Now tell us about your business – what made you choose this creative path?
I love working with paper. I think that choosing the right paper for your stationery is just as important as the design. I want to show my clients that they can have fun with their invitations without breaking the budget.
What’s the best part of your job?
Meeting so many amazing people. I love to hear about their wedding plans and I’m honoured that they want me to be a part of their special day.
Career highlights so far?
Creating custom stationery for some of the best planners in the city, and designing my sister’s wedding invitations.
Yeg love! – favourite place to eat in Edmonton?
There are so many local gems! It really depends on the time of day. Brunch is always at the Sugarbowl. Café Tiramisu for lunch, and then over to Duchess Bake Shop for a macaroon! If you haven’t had dinner at Creations at the Sawridge Inn, I highly recommend it.
Best nightlife in edmonton?
You’re more likely to find me responding to client emails then going out at night!
Share the love – any other yeg wedding superstars you love working with?
