If after viewing the portfolio and pricing you are interested in unique Wedding Stationery being created for you, then we would love to hear from you. Due to the time and care taken to create our custom stationery, Katie partners with a limited number of clients each year on fully bespoke wedding services.
Before we can begin, we need to know some details about yourselves and your big day. When enquiring, please include as much information as possible.
- When the big day is
- The location & venue
- What pieces you are interested in discussing - Save the Dates & Invitations only, or On the Day pieces such as Place Settings, Order of Services or Table Plans too
- Any other deadlines (to get wedding invitations out by, for example)
- Quantities required
- Which designs you are interested in, as a starting point.
Nice to know:
- A little about yourselves
- Your Pinterest boards (we keep your secret boards secret)
- Colours / designs of anything purchased already (Bridesmaid dresses, for example)
- Styles and products you love (this can be anything, from food packaging to an old record sleeve)
- Styles and products you hate (so we can steer clear of any design touches you dislike!)
Once we have all of this information, we aim to get back to you within 3 working days with a quote. Due to the bespoke nature of the work, it is not possible to provide an exact quote until designs and materials have been finalised, however we provide visibility and honesty with costs throughout the processes; we understand weddings are expensive things.
Upon receiving the quote and some more details from us, please take your time to think it through, and if you’d happy to confirm we will work in one of two different ways, depending on your location.
If you’re based in London, or able to travel, we love to have clients over to our studio, located just behind Alexandra Palace in North London. Appointments are scheduled for approx one hour, and we go through the portfolio of previous work and discuss your requirements.
The studio is a creative place rather than a dedicated showroom, and we really feel it gives a good interpretation of what we’re about. All stationery is printed and handmade within the studio; we don't outsource any part of the process. We love to welcome clients to get to know us a little before making this big commitment on the most important bits of paper you may ever purchase!
Appointments tend to be during office hours, but can occasionally be scheduled for evenings or weekends.
Around half the clients we have worked with we have never met, so if you’re not able to make it to the studio for an appointment, we have lots of creative ways of sharing ideas and involving you in the design process.
We can discuss your requirements via email or telephone, and post samples out to you. Due to the busy nature of the studio, we prefer to schedule telephone meetings for bespoke stationery.
What Happens Next
Once you’re happy to confirm that you’d like to work with us, we ask for a deposit of 50% of the initial quote before starting on any design work. Once this is received, we aim to have will have samples with you within 1-2 weeks. From the first set of samples, we make changes and tweaks, aiming to go to production by the second set of samples.
In terms of timescales, from first meeting to you receiving your stationery, the process takes approx 1 month, however this may vary pending on your requirements, and how many bookings we currently have.
After the Invitations
Once we have designed your Save the Dates and/or Invitations, we will know you both well, and have your style down to a tee. This means that the design of your On the Day pieces will flow organically from your other Wedding Stationery, tying everything together beautifully. If you would like to book On the Day Stationery too, please get in touch to secure your booking at least 3 months before it’s required. Please visit the FAQ section for more information about this.
