In order to create her breathtaking bespoke ciphers—a combination of letters woven into a personal mark—Nancy Sharon Collins begins with a consultation, either in her by-appointment New Orleans studio or remotely. “It’s something between going to a shrink and to an architect,” she says. Ultimately, the process yields a custom emblem designed to last a lifetime. As well as arranging for social stationery through Collins, clients have embroidered their ciphers onto everything from linen napkins to sweaters.
Bespoke packages start at $2,350 and include personal cipher design and 120 regular sheets of personalized notepaper; by appointment only; 917-392-1417; nancysharoncollinsstationer.com.
