I Want To Design My Own Stationery

Alea Lovely

If you’ve already decided on your overall theme and want
this to be mirrored in the look of your invites, there’s plenty of
inspo in our stationery
galleries.

Elizabeth Edwards has seen thousands of stationery
designers in her 16-years heading up the Brides art team.

DIY DECOR IDEAS

Up for learning a new skill? Why not book onto a course? If
fonts are your thing, The Letterpress
Collective in Bristol hold workshops for beginners, or www.checkoutmyprint.com
in London create bespoke artworks using lino and block printing,
while www.hotbedpress.org, in
Salford, offer courses in skills from photo etching to stencil
printing and my favourite – typewriter artworks (yes,
typewriters are back in vogue!)

If you want to hand-draw your stationery or sketch out your
designs, then any high street printer like www.prontaprint.com or www.kallkwik.co.uk will
transform it into wedding invites and supply matching
envelopes.

more – all sorted at the touch of a button!
