CUSTOMISING YOUR STATIONERY

 

PRINTING METHODS

  • Flat / digital printing: Simplest method of printing, it creates a simple finish. Great if you are on a budget as it is the cheapest when compared to foil and letterpress printing.
  • Foil: Creates a metallic finish, available on card stock or handmade paper
  • Letterpress: A subtle imprint with matte inks on card stock or handmade paper

PAPER SELECTION

  • Handmade paper: We source the most divine handmade papers on the market, available mostly in neutral shades. 
  • Card Stocks: We have many card stocks available in many different colours and textures, please get in touch to discuss the card stock recommended for your stationery needs or budget requirements.

ENVELOPE COLOUR

We have lots of colours available to suit your event, ranging from the popular black, navy blues to blush pinks and greys. Only neutral colours are available for handmade paper envelopes.

CALLIGRAPHY

Calligraphy can be digitised or handwritten depending on the paper chosen, timeframe and your budget. Digitised calligraphy is recommended for handmade paper invitations as the handmade paper can be very difficult to write on by hand and therefore can be a slow process. If you are limited on time or on a budget, then digitising the calligraphy is recommended.

OPTIONAL ADD ONS

  • Envelope addressing: Guest name and addressing on the invitation envelope is often handwritten, whereas the reply address on the back of the invitation and the address on the RSVP envelope is often printed. Please be aware that calligraphy for addressing may look beautiful, we highly recommend handwritten block letters or a typeface font for the address as post office machines may have difficulties reading handwritten calligraphy addresses.
  • Watercolour washes: Adding watercolour washes to your stationery may enhance the beautiful of it. The effect of watercolour on handmade paper is absolutly stunning!
  • Foiling on paper edges: Definitely adds interest to your beautiful stationery. Seen mostly on handmade paper.
  • Wax seals: comes as an adhesive sticker for you to stick onto your envelopes after assembly of your invitations. Currently available in 6 designs and different colours (Copper, Gold, Antique Gold, Black, White, Champagne Gold and Custom colour)
  • Silk Ribbon wrap: Ribbon available in 1, 2, 4, 6cm wide and available in most colours.
