FAQ
(7)
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Classic, traditional, contemporary or quirky!
What about your business are you most proud of?
As husband and wife, we're very proud to be running a letterpress studio together (and this year sees us celebrating 15 years of marriage)!
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Have a good idea of your budget.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
We get an idea of the style and the budget before proceeding to the design service. We work closely with each couple to achieve the design that they have in mind. Once the design has been approved, we move onto the print process and supply proofs at every stage.
What is the most important piece of stationery for a wedding and why?
The invitation. It sets the tone for the day and gives your guests an idea of what to expect, whether it's camping in a muddy field, dancing in a castle or having a good old shindig in your favourite pub.
What is your best seller?
All designs are unique to the couple. Sometimes previous designs can inform a new design but inevitably designs reflect the personality of the couple and the day that they have planned. Our illustration service is very popular and there's nothing I love more than creating a pen and ink drawing of the venue to adorn the stationery.
What is the most innovative delivery method you have come across?
Our clients can be very creative! The most innovative delivery has to be between an origami crane attached to each invitation and a literary themed suite of bookmarks and bookplates.
