⚡️ The Highlights from Retro Press in 2017

retro_press-01.jpg

Wow! Where did that year go?! And what a wonderful, jam- packed, exciting one it was too! I've had invitations coming out of my ears, from rustic to glam and everything in between, I've designed and produced lots of different and unique day stationery, from do not disturb signs to huge welcome signs, and then there has also been a lot of business stationery on the go and new brands that I've been working with... It's been crazy! Did I mention that there has been several collaborative photo-shoots, wedding fairs, meetings and relationships formed with wedding suppliers and wedding venues AND a re-launch of the website too?! Oh and I've moved studios/ house and got a little fur baby too- Lewi, a very naughty miniature dachshund!

WEDDING VENUE PARTNER : ECKINGTON MANOR

A beautiful venue in the lovely village of Eckington (near Bredon). I have collaborated with the team at Eckington and created two different bespoke wedding invitations. Looking forward to working more with them in 2018.


THE LAUNCH OF THE TAILORED COLLECTION

A small collection of Wedding Invitation Suites designed to make it easier for my clients. These are tailored to suit my clients, colours, fonts, wording, etc, thus still very much personalised; it's not like ordering off Etsy or NOTHS for example. Hopefully, there is something for everyone, if not, we go down the Bespoke route. Have a look for yourself.


SAVE THE DATE TAGS

A similar concept to the Tailored Collection, Save the Date tags, designed here at Retro Press, making it easy and affordable for my clients. View more on by clicking here...


WEDDING VENUE PARTNER : KINGSCOTE BARN

I'm delighted to be working in association with Kingscote Barn, where I shall be exhibiting at their Wedding Fair at the beginning of this year; Sunday 18th March 2018, which I am very excited about! Lots of good things to come...


CHRISTMAS CARDS

There was a high demand for personalised Christmas cards this year, from newly wed bride & grooms to families to other suppliers, such as Vanilla Pod Bakery (Exquisite wedding cake specialists based in the Cotswolds). Here a few below...


AN OFFICIAL SUPPLIER FOR ROCK MY WEDDING

Being asked to feature on The Love List of Rock My Wedding at the end of 2017 really topped it all off and I can't wait for more to come with them...

Christmas Wedding Stationery Shoot with Aqua Florist 💐

christmas wedding stationery

So with the Christmas countdown being very much ON, it was a fantastic opportunity to work with Jo from Aqua Florist on a little festive inspired photo shoot. Jo has been busy busy busy with weddings all year round but at Christmas she finds the time to make these beautiful wreaths, which are filled with bows, ribbons, dried fruits, pine cones and they are just exquisite. I went to visit her at the Aqua Flowers HQ along with my little helper Lewi (the sausage dog- who actually didn't help at all!!) and had a full on day of fun, Christmas and photos!

With Christmas Weddings getting more and more popular, it's a crazy time here at Retro Press- what with doing bespoke Christmas card orders to Wedding Stationery and I just love it! When you think of Christmas inspired wedding stationery, think deep, warm, dark colours with touches of metallic tones running through them. Colour combinations that work very well together: Emerald Greens & Golds, Dark Greys & Silvers, Deep Reds & Golds, Navy & Rose Golds and actually the Brown Kraft paper is very indicative of this Christmassy feel.

Enjoy the photos and please do get in touch, I'd love to hear from you!

Personalised Christmas Cards & Invitations 🎅🏼❄️

I don't mean to Alarm anybody... but it's only 77 days until Christmas! The fact of the matter is,  it's only 11 weeks away & that's going to FLY by. Time to get your Christmas caps on. Whether you're planning a Christmas Party at the office, a Christmas drinks soirée at the house or just some good old fashioned Christmas cards. Let's get organised.

As always here at Retro Press, I pride myself on unique and bespoke design... Christmas is no different and the options are vast. Just as my invitations come with many finishing options & styles; be it foiling, embellishment, paper stocks and sizes. You name it, I can do it. Safe to say my Christmas cards this year will be featuring my newest prized possession (Lewi the Sausage Dog, with a tiny little santa hat on). Yours can feature anything you want; a photograph, a famous family phrase or just something cute and Christmassy.

Get in touch for more info and let me take your stationery reindeer by the horns...

Brown kraft Gold Foiled Personalised Christmas Cards

Matching stationery... For me, there is nothing better! After doing a couples wedding stationery from start to finish, including the invitations, orders of service and thank you cards, it was a pleasure designing their Christmas cards to match! 
When offering such a personal service like we do here at Retro, it's just so nice to be involved with every aspect of the couple's journey together. We thrive on anything design, from wedding stationery, party invitations, Christening invitations, bespoke prints, cards... The lot!
So if you've got something special in mind but you can't quite articulate it yourselves, please do get in touch with any stationery requests...

Gold foiled Christmas cards!

It's been a very busy Christmas thus far already.... What with lots of wedding stationery and christmas stationery also. We have designed many bespoke Christmas cards/ invitations this year which has been great fun. 
I'd like to showcase these wonderful gold foiled cards, printed by Retro Press but designed by the lovely Tash at Culpepper & Co. 
Please do get in touch if you've got an idea in mind that you need help in executing.

Bespoke Christmas Cards with Retro Press

It's definitely the right time to start thinking about Christmas preparations... So if you're looking to have personalised cards printed or designed, you have landed yourselves on the right page. Whether you want some made up for your business or personally, now is the right time to order them.

In the past we have printed letterpress christmas coasters, cards and vouchers for a wide variety of clients.

I know a lot of people send digital cards nowadays (which we can also provide) but for us here at Retro, we believe that there is nothing more personal than to receive a postcard or a card; something physical that someone has made the effort to choose, write and send.

Services:

  • Bespoke design service

Be unique this Christmas... Here are a few designs we have created this year. You can purchase these random delights straight away- just get in touch (minimum quantities of 50)!
