Patricia and Rachel Mumau Primele is the lettering studio of sisters Patricia and Rachel Mumau. Begun in 2009, Primele continues to be a home for contemporary calligraphy and hand drawn lettering. Our work has received kind nods from the people at Martha Stewart Weddings, Town and Country Weddings, Brides Magazine, Design Sponge, and Oh So Beautiful Paper, among others.

In 2011 Primele released Fawnsberg, a designer stationery collection dedicated to quality paper for everyday occasions.


Patricia and Rachel live together with their family in New York’s orchard country, on the ridge of Lake Ontario. The farm is shared with a couple cows, too many ducks, thirty chickens all named Helen (yes, all of them), a pair of milking goats, a dog because every farm needs a dog, and cats to play in the hay.
