As a wedding stationer and I think there are many advantages to choosing handmade weddings stationery rather than shop bought stationery.
With shop bought stationery, whilst you have a great selection of quality products, there is no opportunity to personalise or have a bespoke design. If you’re buying from a shop, chances are, many other couples will have chosen the same design as you.
So, what are the merits of handmade stationery? Here at Yours Occasionally, I offer a one-hour consultation to all my couples. We sit down together and talk through the couple’s ideas for their wedding. This helps me build a picture of what they’re looking for, what sort of style the want and how they are as a couple. All this information helps me put together a bespoke design for the couple. I can incorporate the chosen colours, or a specific design, or even a bespoke illustration of the venue.
You will have had the opportunity to choose which colour card, what font style and colour you want for your stationery. With handmade stationery, you get the opportunity to approve the design and text before the items are made and make changes right up to before they are printed. It also means there is no finite number of items you must have, you only order as many as you need. I work to couples’ deadlines, so they know when they can expect to take receipt of their stationery. I help them work out RSVP dates and plan out when each item of stationery should be made.
Once production starts, each item is individually printed and finished, either with embellishments or ribbon. Every piece of card is cut to size, and only high-quality products are used to ensure a professional, clean finish.
Handmade items always feel special. They show your guests that you care about them and your wedding day, and quite often can become a great ice breaker or a talking point on the day.
No order is too small or too big for Yours Occasionally, why not book a consultation today and see for yourself what we can do for you.
