What about your business are you most proud of?
Special Moments started as a few handcrafted cards just over 4 years ago and it has blossomed into a successful online business providing for hundreds of wedding every year. I couldnt have done it without my wonderful couples who are always so generous with their kind words.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
START EARLY! The worst thing for a stationer is having to turn a couple away because they have left it too late and you are either fully booked or there simply isnt enough time to make what they need. Handcrafted stationery takes planning and time, there are often multiple rounds of proofs and samples, it isnt something that can be turned around overnight. As soon as you have your date get in touch and secure a production space with a deposit then the sky is the limit!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Typically most of my orders start with a couple finding me on Etsy, Instagram, Facebook or Google and either sending me a message or going straight ahead and ordering a sample. Once they have their sample and are happy to go ahead they contact me to either place an order or put down a deposit. If we are going straight ahead with the order I will then send a form to complete requesting wording and text for their stationery. This information is used to produce electronic proofs which the couple are then asked to approve prior to printing. If an advanced booking with a deposit is made this process will take place during the month of production once the final balance has been received.
What is the most important piece of stationery for a wedding and why?
Invitations - Without invitations or save the dates your guests wouldn't know when or where your wedding is!
What is your best seller?
