Our designs


We have worked on a variety of designs for weddings and events. Click here to see our portfolio.  


The Design Process

Our process begins with a discussion with you about your themes, colour schemes, or any other ideas you might have for your stationery. Pinterest boards are great, or any other visual references or descriptive words that give us an idea of your taste and style. If it suits you, we would love for you to pop into our Edinburgh studio for a coffee and we can have a chat and show you some samples. If not, we could meet you somewhere convenient, or do it via email and phone! 

Following this initial chat, we will work to the agreed brief to design something completely unique for you. We will provide digital proofs for you via email, and we can then offer two rounds of amends or changes. Any further changes, or a new design would be charged accordingly.

We can provide samples of your chosen paper stock, however regrettably we cannot provide printed samples of your design, due to high print costs for a single item.
Once final digital proof is approved, we will send the designs to print, after which point, amendments cannot be accepted and any reprint costs would be payable by the client. 
 


Payment

 For bespoke designs our standard design fee is £150, and this is payable as a non-refundable deposit, prior to work commencing. Then the invitations, or other stationery items are priced individually, dependant on size, paper stock and printing method. The final balance of your order is payable on collection or delivery. Any delay in payment will unfortunately result in a  delay on your order. 
 


Prices

For bespoke stationery prices can vary greatly, dependant on the size, paper stock and print process you choose. It is very helpful if you can give us an outline of your budget at the outset and we can work within this. All prices will be fully communicated throughout the order process and options can always be provided for cost-saving. 
 


Timings

For bespoke stationery, we ideally need 8-12 weeks dependent on your specific requirements. If you are running short of time, please get in touch, in some instances we can speed up the process! 
 


Delivery

Printed stationery can be delivered to any UK address for £4.95. Alternatively, you are welcome to collect your order from our Edinburgh store free of charge. If you prefer, 'on-the-day' stationery items can be delivered directly to your venue, provided they are willing to accept deliveries. Large or heavy items, such as table plans and chalkboards are likely to incur excess postage charges. Please enquire for details.
For international orders, please enquire for postage charges. 
 


Items for hire

Items which we provide on loan, such as chalkboards are subject to a refundable deposit. To receive your deposit back, they must be returned to us, in the condition they were provided within the timescale agreed. Any damages to these items are payable by the client.
