BESPOKE INVITATIONS

If you are looking for something that is completely unique and tells your story, something truly special that you will cherish for years to come, then choosing to go bespoke is for you.

My goal is to make the creative process as seamless and fun as possible for you and to bring to life a wedding suite that reflects both your personalities and the essence of your wedding day.

How it all works

My process always begins by getting to know you better. I will first kindly ask that you fill in the Bespoke Stationery QuestionnaireA creative consultation will follow to discuss your ideas & inspiration and I will send you a design proposal together with a tailored quote shortly after that.

If you're happy with it, then we're on!

There is obviously a lot more to this, so head to the Design Process page for a more detailed breakdown of each step.

The investment

My bespoke design fee starts at £250. This is for creating an original design and the quote will be tailored to reflect how elaborate a concept is.

 

In addition, your stationery quote will include the production & printing costs which again can vary greatly depending on the type of paper and the printing process chosen.

All you need to know, no hidden costs, is in my Design & Pricing guide.

Time is of the essence

The turnaround time for a custom suite is between 6 and 12 weeks depending on how intricate your project is. This is the time needed to ensure that your stationery is exactly the way you had envisioned it.

Your invitations need to be sent to your guests 8 to 10 weeks before your wedding day. So make sure you secure your spot in my diary early enough so that I can start on your bespoke design at least 5 months before your day.

Designing your invitations

Printing your invitations

Digital printing

This full colour process will make your design pop and works on a large selection of papers. It is the most budget friendly option.

Digital foil

Add some metallic accents to your print without blowing your budget. This print is smooth with a mirror finish.

Hot foil

Your design is stamped with a foil colour of your choice onto the paper, creating a luxurious finish with a slightly debossed texture. Foil comes in a vast choice of colours, from your classic gold, silver and rose gold to some exciting holographic or neon.

You can mix & match the printing method across your suite. Learn more by consulting the guide below.

Every piece is custom designed for you with great attention to details and brought to life with care using high quality materials.  You and your guests will never see anything like it anywhere else.
