what we can offer

Luxe extras for every occasion

When we say ‘luxury extra’ we mean the details beyond simple digital print. 

Luxury extras give the wow factor to your wedding stationery suite.

Nothing says luxury like hot foiling; sparkling, shining metallics are a perfect way to enhance your wedding stationery.

Or go one step further, add a bespoke wax seal stamp, a venue illustration or envelope liners for the ultimate luxurious feel and look.

This ones for all the magpies out there!

Same technique as hot foiling, just without the foil. A deep impression in the paper.

hot foiling

Hot foiled names, monograms & venues

Hot foiling is a handmade, hand pressed, hot process involving a plate; that combined with a layer of foil, creates a debossed impression in the paper. 

Foil comes in metallic finishes and every colour of the rainbow. We can hot foil your names, a venue illustration, a bespoke monogram… actually the entire invite can be hot foiled!

Venue illustrations & Bespoke Table Names

Venue illustrations are the perfect way to lift your wedding stationery to that next, elegant level. We hand draw your venue, then this can either be digitally printed or hot foiled.

Our bespoke illustrations have fast become our most sought after service. You give us a list of places or items, and we draw them. We do this digitally on the iPad adding watercolour effects for a unique finished style.

Classic techniques with a modern twist

Calligraphy & Wax Seal Stamps

Kate’s the calligraphy Queen here in the studio, perfecting her own style and enabling it to be added to several elements within your stationery suite.

Wax stamps; think rich golds and silvers, or bright greens and pinks, and couple that with modern monogrammed initials.

Seeing is believing...

Luxe extras can feature in every element of your wedding stationery.

And the rest

Envelope liners, vellum wraps, gilt edges & addressed envelopes...

Gilt edging gives that subtle air of sophistication to your stationery.

Envelope liners are a total luxury, but one worth considering if you want that wow factor.

Printed names & addressed envelopes, the luxe extra for the messy hand writers out there.  Save your time and get us to do it. 

Vellum belly bands and silk ribbon finish off your wedding invitations. Functional and decorative; they’re a great way to hold the invite together in terms of your details and rsvp sheets.

We most certainly can; we will make suggestions throughout the process that we feel will elevate your stationery to the max.

They vary greatly and are all dependent on quantities but we will do a detailed, itemised quote for you once you let us know what you like.

Ideally yes, especially if there’s a certain angle you would like us to capture. However, as long as google images has one, we’ll find it!

Nooooo. Just pop us an email after the wedding when you’re ready and we’ll get to work on these for you.

Absolutely! When all production relating to your wax stamp is complete, we will send this to you to treasure.
