We believe paper is an intrinsic part of our finished product, and not just a vehicle for our design, therefore, a huge amount of thought has gone into our paper choices.
We have found that various papers take our print methods differently. There are therefore two separate paper options, depending on whether you are looking at letterpress printing or hot foil stamping.
Our house letterpress stocks are 100% cotton. This is pretty much as good as it gets in the world of paper geekery. Its soft, textured nature takes the impression of letterpress beautifully. It really is the epitome of luxury printing.
We offer a gorgeous 330gsm, as well as a stunning, super thick 500gsm board. Both are the same, gorgeous shade of warm white, so if you choose to have your invitations printed on 500gsm, but would like the rest of your suite printed on 330gsm, they will match perfectly.
Our beautiful, standard letterpress boards are milled right here in the UK.
Our house stock for foil stamping is available in over 40 (yes, 40!) delicious shades. Its smooth, compressed surface is the perfect base for our pretty foil goodness to be printed onto.
This coloured stock also takes the impression of letterpress beautifully, so works well if you’re looking to inject both foil and letterpress into your suite.
Available in a couple of different weights, our coloured stock is super luxurious. The 540gsm is perfect if you’re trying to be budget friendly but still look super sexy, while the 800gsm really grabs the attention of your guests when it lands on their doorsteps.
For the ultimate in swoon-worthy paper goodness, we can combine board colours, with one colour on the front, and one on the back. Or, if you love a liquorice allsort (erm, who doesn’t?) we can create a paper sandwich, with a coloured middle and contrasting front and back. Duplexing, triplexing…the options are endless!
Our envelopes are custom made for us in the UK, out of a sumptuous 135gsm English stock.
These are manufactured especially for us, to our specific item sizes. As standard, a gorgeous diamond flap, warm white envelope (the same colour as our cotton letterpress boards) is included in the price of the order with all of the items that need them.
While our standard envelopes are pretty wonderful, for an even more luxurious finish, we can add a handmade, coloured envelope to your order for an additional charge. These have a sleek and stylish deep, square, ‘wallet’ flap, giving a sophisticated look to your suite.
To accompany both our plain, and coloured envelopes, are our very beautiful envelope liners – a great way to add a pop of colour or pattern to your stationery suite. Available in over 40 shades, along with a selection of digitally printed patterns, these are a lovely finishing touch.
For the ultimate co-ordination, we can finish the invitation envelopes with a rather delicious digitally printed address label. These will be printed in fonts that will perfectly complement your chosen stationery suite, and really are a lovely finishing touch. (Not to mention time saver…when you have lots of invitations to address, writing these neatly really can take a while!)
If you’d like us to stamp the envelopes too, this is no problem – this means as soon as you receive them, all you have to do is pop them in the post on their way to your guests.
When it comes to receiving your RSVPs back promptly, we have found the easier you make it for your guests to reply, the quicker you’ll get them back! With this in mind, we can letterpress print the RSVP envelopes with your return address, and even stamp the envelopes too if you’d like us to.
We can also add your names, monogram or date of the wedding to the back of the envelope – the ultimate way to make it your own.
