Little Dove Designs

Welcome to Little Dove Design. Let us create something beautiful, timeless, and memorable — just for you.

Little Dove Design was founded by Monika Natius, a graphic artist, illustrator, art director, and design director. For years her job took her all over the country, seeing the many ways people express themselves through print and paper. One of the most stunning was letterpress.

Letterpress is, quite literally, the act of pressing letterforms into paper. Highly individual and almost sculptural in its results, letterpress printing is the epitome of elegant correspondence. It was the country’s predominant form of printing until the 1940s. Today, only a small number of high-quality art and hobby letterpress printers remain.

After seeing the classic feel and finish of these elegant pieces, Monika decided to start a couture design studio with a focus on letterpress printing. Originally called Chauhie, the studio has recently expanded and taken on the name Little Dove Design.

Our goal is to make your message as beautiful and unique as you are, whether it’s a birth announcement for a cherished child, commemorating an event for the most important person in your life, or a wedding invitation that will become a cherished heirloom. You can choose one of our existing designs, or contact us to discuss your ideas. We offer custom illustrations and are happy to work with you to bring your dreams to life.

Little Dove Design believes that love is love, in all its beautiful forms of expression. We welcome all customers, regardless of gender or orientation.
