BERNARD MAISNER CUSTOM FINE STATIONERY
My goal is to create sensational custom stationery to convey feelings and emotions, reflecting your desires and aesthetics. Anything we can imagine together can be created.” —Bernard Maisner
A blank canvas materializes into exquisite bespoke stationery, energized by meaningful artist-client collaboration and a dedicated commitment to the sublime. Mr. Maisner’s extensive experience as a painter, contemporary artist, and master calligrapher effects this transformation from concept to realization. And it finds form in made-to-order wedding stationery, party and event invitations, place cards, menu cards, personal stationery suites, and other one-of-a-kind artistic complements.
The renowned artist’s distinctive style, which took years to develop, employs intricate flourishing, infused with elements from various calligraphic styles and eras. The signature Maisner calligraphy style—some call it “Maisnerian”—is an adept modernized fusion of the 19th-century American Spencerian and 18th-century European Copperplate styles, updated by Maisner’s modern aesthetics. In addition to his signature script style, Maisner offers his Italian, French and Americana lettering styles.
Bernard also enjoys creating splashy, colorful, and riotously splattered motifs in playful counterpoint to the more classical themes he offers.
All lettering and decorative garnitures are hand-rendered by Mr. Maisner, who introduced his social stationery collection in 2000 and was deemed by W magazine “the New York calligrapher” soon after.
The hands-on bespoke stationery process begins with a consultation, then wends through creation and design, and concludes with printing. Mr. Maisner personally oversees each step with a discerning eye for detail and a personal passion to provide the best. He also offers the addressing of envelopes, lettering names on place cards, etc., in his elegant scripts.
Celebrated among connoisseurs worldwide, Mr. Maisner has graced the pages of a variety of luxury magazines and was lauded by Town & Country as a “renowned virtuoso.” Tastemaker and media personality Martha Stewart, who welcomed him as a guest on her television show Martha Stewart Living in 2001, called his work “the most beautiful calligraphy I’ve ever seen.”
