- Folly & Gander is business born out of a love for paper and a modern approach to wedding stationery. We offer an affordable variety of 'customisable collections' which we personalise with your content and colours. For those with a strong vision for their wedding stationery we also offer a bespoke design service, giving your the opportunity to create the perfect suite you've always dreamed of. We can create all of the pieces for your invitation suite, as well as a wide range of pieces for your big day, including orders of service, tables plans, favour tags, signage... the list goes on. We also believe that special touches can really go along way to making a stationery suite feel unique and personal to a couple. So, alongside our hand-lettering and calligraphy services we also design personalised stickers, rubber stamps and wax seals (and most anything else you can think of!) for you to finish your invitations in style.

That I get to be a small part of a couple's biggest adventure.

Describe your typical process with a couple.
For a customised collection I usually converse directly via email, and I'll ask you for all the adaptations you'd like to make to your chosen suite; colours, size, addition of metallic foil, letterpress printing, coloured envelopes, as well as all the information to include. I then produce digital proofs, and with a bit of back and forth tweaking words and layout we finales the design and send it off to the printers, the have it delivered to you. For bespoke suites, we'll have a chat either face-to-face or by phone to get an idea of exactly what you want. I then usually make a mood board of images so that we have a set of shared reference material to work from. Step 1 is to sketch up a few designs; Step 2 is to select 2 or 3 which I will design the invitation for; Step 3 is to select a design and I will then make any changes, and apply it across all the elements you require. We'll also discuss printing methods, as well as any additional finishes you'd like to include. Ultimately, this will all to printed and delivered to you for you to send out.
What is the most important piece of stationery for a wedding and why?
The invitation, hands down. Not only is it really functional in that it gives your guests all the information they need to know, it sets the tone and personality of your big day.
What is your best seller?
Foliage in general, there is a big love for leaves at the moment!
How do you add romance to any wedding stationery you do?
I think the words actually do most of the romance. Whether super traditional or simple and stripped back, the right words do so much to convey the couples love for each other.
