Meticulous Ink

Athena Cauley-Yu, owner of the well-loved stationery shop Meticulous Ink based in Bath has had a career in stationery and calligraphy after completing her studies in Arts & Media in Farnham.

Specialising in Fine Art Print due to the abundant space in the print studios, she went on to work at two private stationers in London before embarking on her creative business venture in Meticulous Ink.

Meticulous Ink is a small, women-led team of lovely, diverse, creative folk that really care a lot about creating beautiful, unusual, tactile stationery.⁠ Their 1960s presses are what they use to print greeting cards, stationery box sets and printed matter that they sell in the shop area of their studio. Meticulous Ink also uses them to produce bespoke print projects – from business cards and wedding invites to packaging and bookmarks. ⁠

Behind the counter, you can see their printworks and machines. They proudly create bespoke designs and stationery printed the old fashioned way – using beautiful papers, time, patience, and a deep-rooted passion for being meticulous. ⁠

At the very back of the studio, Meticulous Ink teaches lettering and calligraphy workshops. The space is calm and friendly, full of creative inspiration and tactile, analogue trinkets.⁠
