A Life in Print
Everyone loves to celebrate, and throughout our lifetimes there are so many opportunities - big and small... to do so.
From new additions, birthdays and graduations to engagements, weddings and anniversaries - there is no limit on the ways we celebrate life with friends and family!
"To the world you may be one person; but to one person you may be the world.” - Dr Seuss
Finding that special person to spend the rest of your life with is a huge milestone that deserves to be celebrated and commemorated.
Whether you are looking to announce your engagement, invite friends and family to an engagement party or would like to immortalise that extra special question in print, I'm available to assist.
Wedding stationery can encompass all aspects of your wedding; before, during and after. From save the dates and invitations, to on-the-day items such-as menus and order of services - to the thank you cards sent after the day itself.
I understand that with so many stationery options available it can be hard to choose what will work for you...
If you're considering bespoke stationery for your special day and have no idea where to begin - I'm here to help!
The best place to start is on Pinterest - 'Pinning' everything you like or are inspired by; until a pattern starts to emerge of styles you like.
Next, workout rough numbers of guests and sort them into couples and families. This will guide you on the amount of save the dates and invitations required.
At this point, begin to think about the information your guests will need to know - in addition to the basic details like the date, times, ceremony and reception venue locations, etc...
Once you've collated all these elements it's time to arrange a meeting with me.
Examples of stationery items my clients have ordered include:
Save the Dates | Invitations | Order of Service | Order of the Day | Table Numbers/Names | Place Cards | Table Plan | Favour Tags | Menus | Thank You Cards | Games | Stickers & Temporary Tattoos | Date-Night Cards | Signs - for items such as your Guestbook, Blanket Box, Photo Booth...
Every anniversary is special - whether you have a big celebration with friends and family, or something low-key just for the two of you.
In each case there is a unique opportunity for print items. Be that invitations, menus, venue decoration - or even bespoke paper gifts for that traditional 1st anniversary.
I've had the pleasure of creating invitations to many different anniversary parties over the years, but my favourite has got to be the 70th Wedding Anniversary Party Invitations I designed for Frank and Irene.
Births & ceremonies
A new life joining your family is a moment to rejoice and recognise with loved ones; regardless of whether it's your first child or 5th!
From baby showers to christenings, humanist ceremonies, naming days and dedications - however you choose to memorialize a new child, bespoke print items such-as invitations can make the event extra special.
If you are announcing the birth of your latest addition I can create a timeless, bespoke design as unique as the occasion itself. This could also be tied into previous design work (your wedding artwork for example) to create a complete picture of your life in print.
Winnie the Pooh, A.A.Milne, author
"How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard."
Life in its many forms, is beautiful. When ones story reaches its end there is no right or wrong way to behave. I personally believe that whilst loss should be mourned, a life's spark should also be remembered joyfully for the rare moments in time it created.
I consider myself a compassionate, considerate person and I put this into my work when designing stationery for funerals and end-of-life announcements. Whether you wish to pursue a traditional design or more contempory take, I can be of assistance.
