I'm pleased to announce that we have a limited number of Christmas card packs available for purchase.

The cards are 145mm sq with white envelopes. The cover design is letterpressed in dark purple on 300gsm soft white cotton card and finished with a single crystal diamante and satin ribbon spine tie. I have several ribbon shades that particularly suit such as dark plum, gold, wine red, even bright pink but if there is a particular colour ribbon you would like let me know and I can add it instead (subject to availability). They are available in packs of 5 for £9 (£1 p&p).

If you would like to buy them please email me at
Payment is via Paypal- I'll email an invoice link if you wish to purchase.

In the Pipeline . . .

Ok, I admit I've been a bad blogger. I have had good intentions to update this blog and Flickr gallery regularly but it has been the busiest of summers and I have neglected to do so due to work load. But as we enter into Autumn I have lots of plans . . .

Firstly we are working on a beautiful new website relaunch - so watch this space! I'm so excited!

I've also recently discovered Twitter which has opened a whole new world of wedding professionals, and we're looking into launching a fan page on Facebook. I have yet to be persuaded to use Facebook - a mere look has always been enough to frighten me away so I invite you all to explain to me the advantages to joining the Facebook community fully! Please?

The Letterpress work is coming along well - some special designs will be debuting very soon.

And we've had lots of exciting enquiries and bookings for bespoke stationery suites - Prettywild hearts the challenge creating something new!

Bridal Soup

I'm delighted to be featured on one of my favourite wedding websites this week!

The piece is a "No nonsense guide to modern wedding and civil partnership stationery". I hope it will be of help to couples taking their first look at suppliers. I will be preparing a piece for my own blog and website (when it's relaunched) expanding on this.

Hope you enjoy it -

I love the beauty of words and experimenting with typography. . .

I thought I'd show a few items we recently devised and completed for an imminent wedding in our very popular "Arboris" style.
To save money and space for a couple's reception, we combined 3 items in 1 - a place card, menu and favours and came up with this dinky little wallet for each guest, suitably sized to hold a lottery ticket favour . . .

Incorporating the couple's reception theme of their favourite movies, we were asked to come up with a special quiz card for each film named table. These are slider quiz cards - each question of 10 is shown in a window at the front and the corresponding answer in a window on the reverse side. The finished size is approx 30cm x 10cm. It was certainly a design challenge as we needed to ensure the windows and text fitted comfortably and lined up equally on each card but still within a uniform and elegant style . . .

Following the invitations I designed and produced for this wedding, we were recently requested for a post box, guest book and Wedding Souvenir booklet keeping in the same spirit of the original booklet style invitations but with a slight colour change to black and teal. 
I thought it would be a nice idea to incorporate as much information as possible but in a slightly unusual page format. The booklet was divided into 16 pages between 3 sections - welcome information, the church service and the reception. Each section's pages were different sizes to make a self tabbed index. 

The design on the cover was developed from the invitations and the monogram I created from the couples initials (they both shared the same initials single and married!) The L's were positioned back to back like a little mad hatter hat.
