everything you need to know

From initial enquiry to receiving your stationery...

We love to get to know our couples. Understanding who you are as a couple and what you’re all about is imperative to creating something totally unique for your wedding day.

Whether it’s taking inspiration from a suite we’ve created historically or starting from scratch, we’ll set up a call or a coffee chat ‘all things you’.

Sit back and relax whilst we work our magic, printing, producing and hand finishing your beautiful stationery. All you have to do is wait for it to arrive on your doorstep.

Send a Save the Date card...

Sending Save the Dates ahead of your wedding invitations is a really good idea if you’re having a destination wedding, a wedding weekend or if you’re just in one of those families or friendship groups that are always busy! 

They’re also just a lovely thing to do and if you can’t contain your excitement, then send a save the date… Nothing wrong with screaming about it early! 

The best bit about sending a Save the Date is being able to tease your guests, just hinting about what to expect…

our type of couple

We don't really have a type

Certainly one thing we can say about our couples is that they’re all definitely magpies! Hot foiling is kinda our thing and it’s very rare that it’s not the luxurious and eye-catching nature of our hot foiling that every one of our couples are initially drawn to.

Be it bold and beautiful, subtle and soft or a perfect combination of the two; we’re the girls for you. Timeless elegance is our forté.

For all couples

LGBTQ+ & inclusive

Retro Press welcomes every kind of couple

All in the details

Wedding stationery that makes a big impression

Invitations need to achieve two things; telling your guests everything they need to know; destination, accommodation, timings, dress code etc. 

Good Invitations will also allude to what your guests can expect of your big day.

We’ve been designing and creating wedding stationery for over 10 years so we’re confident in the knowledge that we know everything there is to know about getting it right.

So for us, your wedding invitations are super important.

wedding stationery costs

Lets talk budgets, costs & what to expect

As with any bespoke service that varies in both quantities and finishes, it’s impossible for us to have a ‘price list’. Our bespoke design fee starts from £200, with print and production in addition to this. We encourage everyone to send us as detailed an enquiry as possible so we can create an accurate quote to build upon.

Most importantly, there won’t be any surprises, we keep costs transparent and should there be any additions or luxe extras you want to add as the design process goes on, we keep you in the loop.

What our couples think

Sometimes it’s better to hear it straight from the horse’s mouth

Striving for absolute perfection is our goal here at Retro Press

"Retro Press were phenomenal! Despite a slightly short planning time frame they were able to design and create the most beautiful stationary for our wedding which beautifully matched our flower theme. The team were incredible to work with - great customer service and quality work!"
"Just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you for all the INCREDIBLE stationary we had at the wedding! You guys literally took my vision and made it a reality and everyone was complimenting it all day! The table plan, the weekend packs, the menus, the order or services it was honestly so beautiful to look at! "
"I can’t believe our wedding stationery journey is over… It felt like you were always there, cheering us on! Your personal touch definitely made me feel like I was your only customer – even though I know you are sooooo busy! So thank you for that and your attention to detail."
Frequently asked questions

Any burning questions?

See our list of FAQs for what we get asked the most, but if you have a question that you don’t see an answer to, get in touch and we’ll be glad to help.

We personally wouldn’t recommend this. You want to avoid any awkwardness in case they’ve arranged time of work only to realise they are evening only… avoid that at all costs!

Yes we do… We embrace all types of design and understand that some people would like the more traditional style invite.

Absolutely! We have an abundance of past work in our archive so hopefully we’ll have a copy of what you want to see! A bespoke sample pack is £10 and you’ll get 3-4 samples within this. Hopefully the ones you want, but if we don’t have them, we’ll send the nearest to it.

Nope! Naturally, in printing, the higher the print run the cheaper the cost per unit, so the smaller the print run the more expensive it can seem. But that’s the nature of printing sadly. But if you need 5 invitations, we can do 5!

Sadly no we can’t, we don’t offer a print only service. Historically we have and it always ends up needing a lot of time taken for print set up and art work reconfiguration and more often than not would need to be started from scratch to have the best end result.

Mmmm not so easy to answer! So, a price depends on what you want, quantities, finishes, turnaround time, so many things, hence why we can’t give you a number. We have however tried to demonstrate a typical value of suites in the budget section of this page to act as a guide.
