Let's chat about Bespoke Stationery

What is bespoke stationery design?

Bespoke stationery design is something that is tailor made, just for you & your event. It can be really hard to find stationery that matches what you are trying to convey. Finding the right colours to match your colour scheme, finding the perfect style, and also finding something that helps you create the vibe you are going for. How long have you already searched for the perfect stationery that feels perfect for you, and excites you enough to get ordering. This is where having a bespoke design made for you, can help you achieve all those key things in one go, and save you a ton of time too in process.

Why should you choose bespoke design?

We have already discussed how choosing to work on a bespoke design can help you match your event perfectly. It can help you set the tone with an invitation, or it can help you complete a design with on the day stationery pieces. It helps you make your whole event, from start to finish feel cohesive. I absolutely love working on new stationery designs, whenever I have a new idea for a styled shoot I choose bespoke, or when I am working with clients one to one, we tend to lean towards this way of working. This is because it will be especially made to match all the design elements for that event, which makes the whole thing completely unique. I do have a gorgeous 'off the shelf' collection in my shop that I am very proud of, but let me ask you, why have something someone else can choose, when you could have something no one else has had at their event.

What is involved with bespoke design work?

When working on a bespoke design I carefully select colour card & envelopes, colour foils, fonts, illustrations and finishing touches based on all the design elements of your event, to make it personal and meaningful. Which includes the type of event and venue you're hosting, style, colours, vibe and personality. It's as simple as us chatting about what you're looking for and I can suggest lots of ideas that I think will work for your event based on what you tell me.

What kind of thing do you like to work on?

As with all my work I love to design with botanicals. This is the stuff that lights me up and I will confidently produce my best work when I am in this zone. I have a wide selection of botanical illustrations to work with but if there is something I do not have in my hoard I can easily source what I need to bring your design to life. I have a wide collection of plants, greenery, succulents, cactus's, foliage, leaves, trees and much more to get the creative juices flowing.


Does it have to be a whole collection?

Not at all, I appreciate every event is unique, therefore the stationery pieces needed to bring it alive will differ. It could just be an invitation set, it could just be 'on the day' stationery items. I am very open and flexible with the way I work.


Is bespoke expensive?

No it isn't expensive, I charge very fairly for the extra time I take to produce your one of a kind stationery items. I charge a flat designers fee of £100, which covers my design service. You can look at my off the shelf stationery to get an idea of how much the individual products cost on top of that. 

Do you have any examples of bespoke?

Yes I do, here are a few examples of stationery I have created in the wild.


Here I created fun table numbers, drink name tags, arched menus and a table plan for a tropical oasis theme, which was for a concept I designed for wedding open day. I used a mixture of light gold foil and copper to compliment the warm tones used in the colour palette.

As I chose busy tropical patterned leaf napkins I kept the menu quite simple with a arch shaped and a single palm leaf to tie into the theme.

How does the process work?

Here is the step by step process mapped out below for you so you get an insight into what working with me on bespoke design will look like. Bespoke design is for anything you fancy, from invitation sets, to menu, place cards and signage.

Step One- Fill In the Form

It all starts with a questionnaire that I ask you to fill in first. Here I can gather all the details about your event that I need. You can also email me a mood board or inspiration photos if you have any, so I have an idea what you like. I will get in touch by email within 1-2 working days to arrange a consultation to discuss it further.

Step Two - Consultation

We hop on a arranged video call to discuss what your after in more depth, evaluating what stationery you need, including quantities, discussing colour combinations, discussing what style and vibe will suit your event, and I can show you examples to get the creative juices flowing.

Step Three - Quote

I provide you with a quote based on what we have talked about in step one, including quantities you require for each stationery product. I charge a flat designers fee of £100 upfront to start creating your bespoke design. (this fee may increase depending on the complexity of the work) 

Step Four - Let's Begin

If you are happy to go ahead I will ask for the designers fee to be paid in full then I will then start creating your bespoke design, and send you digital proofs within 1-2 weeks. This is your chance to ask for any changes to the design. You will also be offered the opportunity to purchase samples to check you are happy with the finished stationery items, which is encouraged.

Step Five - Full Creation

Once you are 100% happy with your proofs and samples, I will send you an invoice for the remaining balance which must be paid in full before your bespoke stationery is created. By this stage I will provide you with a timeline of when your stationery order will be completed. 

Step Six - Wrap it Up

Once your order is complete, it will be packaged beautifully and sent out to you using a Special Delivery service so you receive the very next working day. 

Step Seven - The Next Step

Once you have received your bespoke stationery design, and you get further into planning your event, you may want to continue with your theme with additional stationery items, so that everything is cohesive.
Please note: Payments can be set up so you pay as you go through the process, depending on how you like to spread your budget out.

I hope you would love to work with me this way and work together on a bespoke design that is especially for you and your event. If you have any questions that have revealed themselves whilst reading all about it, your can get in touch with your enquiry here >>
