Personalised, made to order invitations and stationery is expensive right? - WRONG!

Sometimes the first question we get asked is
 "How much?".



Our answer is
 "It depends on what you are looking for!



All our Invitations and Stationery 

are priced depending on the following factors.


1. The QUALITY & THICKNESS OF THE CARD
we use a minimum of 250gsm card. too thick for most home printers. But some of our stationery is a whopping 330gsm. So remember, when comparing prices, compare quality too! 

2. The SIZE of the item you are buying. Obviously the larger the item the more materials are used in creating it.

3. The FINISH of the item. We laser print and foil our stationery. Foiled items are first laser printed and then processed again through a foiling machine. 

4. The FORMAT of the item. If we're talking about invitations here, a flat card style invitation not only takes less materials, but compared to a folded card with an insert, takes less time in the making up. 

But ALL our prices allow for the on-to-one consultation, personalisation, the proofs and the final making up of your order. 


In order to give our couples a wider choice and prices to suit every budget, our invitations and stationery range is now available Laser Printed as well as our speciality service of foil printed.
All our prices include a full design and personalisation service and all items are made to order. Here’s a guide to how little these items can cost you… and of course you are dealing direct with the maker… from the initial consultation and advice session, right through to your finished on-the-day items… and all this comes included in our prices.

FEATURE FRIDAY! - Those Little Extras

I HEAR YOIU SAYING......

So..... what do you mean by 
Little Extras?

We have been asked for and made, 
many different items over the years. 


This page shows just a few of them :-)


Our tags are great  for people who want
 to make things themselves and add a bit of 
personalisation to their WEDDING FAVOURS or

anything else you-may have in mind.  



The quotation reads
"All because two people met,
and fell in love"

But you can have any quotation printed that floats your boat.

Here they are being used on mini buckets, 

filled with love hearts ... cute aren't they?



Probably the most popular quotation I have ever come across....
 I have lettered this on paper, canvas and greeting cards that many times I've lost count.


'Two souls with a single thought,

Two hearts that beat as one'


And here it is used on a mini candle favour. Light a candle, make a wish....

Candle_favour

Now..... these I just HAVE to share with you. A client came in having an Easter Wedding and wanted me to make some egg cups, so that she could use them as both her Wedding Favours AND her place cards. We first tried wood.... but they didn't turn out so well.... then we found some china pens... this is the result...And I have made many more since then. The Bride added a Kinder Egg, bought in bulk from a wholesalers. FAB IDEA!


WEDDING SIGNS in paper, wood and card are increasingly popular. These signs below are made from MDF. The size of the board and therefore the cost is determined by how many words you want on them. Prices for these start at just £7.50


WISHING or BLESSING TREES are largely taking place over guest books these days. There's something magical about writing out a *WISH* and tying it to a tree for the happy couple to be....


I made these tags which can be personalised 

and a message of your own choosing can be added. 



Here's a close-up with some brightly coloured stuffed hearts. You could hang MDF or wooden hearts if your Wedding is more VINTAGE or SHABBY CHIC.

I hire the Wishing Trees out, but the tags look just as good hanging from twisted hazel or willow, available from most florists, popped in a jar :-)

A word of caution though, which might be a blessing or a bind... the willow will root pretty well in water.... as I found out when I tried this at the shop!

Strewn with battery powered fairy lights these look magical! 


I know a lot of Brides are into DIY these days to save a bit of money wherever they can... these personalised Wedding Tags can be glued to larger more colourful pieces of card and a cut out paper butterfly can look pretty cool! 


You can make them any size you want.


We produce all kinds of printed and foiled items. 

The only limit is your imagination 

Prices are based on size and not quantity 
Wishing Tree Tags for example
Start from as little as 45p each
Even less if you are 
using your own ribbon.


WE ALSO PROVIDE.....
Table name cards....
Gift ideas..... 
Table number cards.....
and LOTS MORE!


So.... if you are looking for something entirely different
and have an idea or 2... give us a call and we'll see what we can do.

As always.... contact us for further details.

Music Themed Wedding Post Box

Ohhhh.... how I have loved making this!

Music themed Wedding post box....


I was contacted by the Auntie of one of this couple...
"They're hiring a jukebox....and their wedding invitations 
were sent out made out of old 45 rpm records"

Straight away I got pictures in my head of how this would end up,
and fortunately Christine gave me free reign to do whatever I wanted.
She said she trusted me to do a good job after seeing the
she knew I was the one who could make something just that little bit different! 



First I found, printed and cut out some records.
I had to laugh when my little 4 year old Granddaughter came to the studio.

"Hey. Daisy.... what are these?"

"Umm... Grandma... they are CD's!"

"No Daisy... they are records"

"Grandma.... what's a record?"

EVER FELT OLD?

Anyway... I digress... where was I?
Yes... first I found the records....



Printed and cut them out....


 And then some Black Music symbols.....

Then there's the calligraphy/hand lettering to be written for the plate.
The artwork for this is always done in Black as
 it reproduces the best, and the foil will give it colour.

Then the plate is made for the front..


And today... I pieced it all together



Pretty cool dontcha this?

Don't forget, if you have an idea for a special kind of postbox you want making,
whether it's for a Wedding, Christening,Anniversary or even Birthday,
give us a call... and we'll see what we can do :-)  The number is 01609 776 866

The beauty of personalised tags

There's no two ways about it.... Tags can make a real difference to your Wedding Favours, Jars on your Candy Cart, Wishing Tree.... or in fact, any other use you can think of. 

More and more people are coming to me for personalised tags. 
Nothing sounds better than a Bride that says...
"I have an idea..... can you make".
The answer is simple... if it printed and on paper or card... YES WE CAN!

I'm sure by now you are familiar with our 
Personalised Wishing Tree Tags....


But over the years we have made tags 
for a wide variety of clients... including Yahoo Inc.! 



All tags are made to order.... from the very simple and stylish


To cute and funky


You come with the idea... we will make it!



Whether it's Wedding Gift Tags..... with stars.....


Hearts.....


Daisies......


Or double hearts....


We are happy to print any colour...


to match your theme....


These were cards made to add to Good Stuff Jars
an idea I talked about here



Of course we can make mini tags.....


And here's some we made to tie up some 
Wedding Scroll Invitations (Which we also made)


And this Bride wanted hers more 'Rustic' looking


Finger prints taken from the Bride and Groom and
 turned into hearts are very popular 
at Inspired by Script. Very personal....and fun too!



These are hearts printed from the couples finger prints, foiled and then cut out....


And this couple used their finger prints for their gift tags....



We even made these hearts with the couples names on them....

FEATURE FRIDAY! - Wedding Albums & Guest Books

Looking for a Wedding Album or Guest Book?

As well as training to become a fully qualified Calligrapher and Lettering Artist 
I also took courses in Creative Bookbinding.





The Wedding Albums and Guest Books
below are all made by me and I made 
them to each clients requirements .

No 2 books are exactly the same! 





Matching albums to colour themes
is all part of the job...
and makes it a little different from the 
usual, shop bought, Ivory or White





Some couples, prefer to have white with coloured accents.
such as in the ribbon or behind the name plate



This one was very different, but as the 
Bride and Groom chose Green and Black 
for their wedding and found it impossible
 to actually find a book that wanted, 
they were delighted to find I could
 make one to their specifications.






The book below was made for a couples 
SILVER Wedding Anniversary! 
They had never got round to actually 
having a proper Wedding Album, 
but  promised themselves they would 
get round to it someday.... 
that 'someday' was 25 years later lol 



Hand made Indian petal inclusion paper
 was used for the binding. 





IBS__Wedding_Album_Cover



I have made hundreds of books over
 the years and not just for Weddings either... 
Here's one for a Birthday.... 'It's all about Steve!'




And one of the great things about being 
a qualified calligrapher is that I can 
personalise the inside pages BEFORE
 I sew up the binding.




Here's a close up of the inside wording....



Here's a pretty pink guest book  
showing some really sweet hanging charms. 
It's great to personalise them in this way :-)

A_Guest_Book_5


Prices: Fully personalised 
Guest books from £20
Honeymoon and Hen/Stag Albums from £50
Wedding Albums from just £65


Prices vary depending on the paper used and the simplicity or complexity of the book


So.... if you are looking for something entirely different
and have an idea or 2... give us a call and we'll see what we can do.


As always.... contact us for further details.
If you live in North Yorkshire, you can call into the studio
