About Ashlyn Hung

Based in sunny Los Angeles, California, Ashlyn Hung is the Owner and Creative Director of Copper Crane Design.

When Ashlyn was a child, her father's calligraphy mesmerized her. She was always intrigued with his handwriting and she consciously practiced different styles herself, hoping to be more like her dad.

In fall of 2016, Ashlyn started doing small calligraphy and card design jobs as an artistic outlet and a creative service. It became a hobby at first, until she got engaged and decided to take on the role of her and her husband, Myron’s Wedding Calligrapher.

Doing their wedding calligraphy while planning their wedding was a true test to her passion. She ended up designing their Wedding Save the Dates, Invitation Suite, signage, and Thank You cards. Ashlyn and Myron also folded 1,001 origami cranes, mixed with white cranes and copper cranes. During this time, Ashlyn was still deciding on what to name the company. Myron suggested "Copper Crane". Because of the clever mix of personal and creative, it is now part of the company name.

Since then, she rebranded her business, redesigned and relaunched her website and created a variety of Wedding Invitation Suites and Save the Dates for clients to choose from and edit for a more personal touch. Although she specializes in card designs for weddings, she also loves making the occasional Thank You card, Baby Shower card, or whatever special event card that comes her way!

There is so much thoughtfulness in cards. It’s an intimate way to tell people that they’re thinking of them.
