  • Helllllloooo!

    Hi to everyone! A great forum you have here!
    My mom and I are slowly setting up a business creating wedding stationery. In the past we have made cards for friends and family but recently we have received alot of interest and so started to sell them further afield! We currently sell handmade cards in a few local shops...nothing large scale and on a part-time only basis!
    About six months ago a friend asked for us to produce her wedding stationery, the whole collection, from invites to the table plan! She absolutly loved them and we very much enjoyed producing them. We had a few problems along the way, particularly with the table plan as she wanted round tables! It all worked out in the end however and we decided to concentrate on the wedding stationery side of things. My mom works in the bridal industry so we have a huge advantage where publicity and advertising is concerned. We have produced very basic business cards along with a sample book which is ongoing.

    anyway........ Hello!

        Hello Stacey and Dawn
        Welcome to the forum. Great to hear that you are getting some success with your wedding stationery. I have to admit I have kept away from it in the past because all the brides I have known have become psychos whilst organising their weddings!! I decided it was best to keep away! I make cards but mainly design backing papers. Looking forward to hearing more about your business and getting to know you.

              Thats what I do too - well I'm branching out into the wedding side of it very slowly. I did a friends wedding too - made and designed all the cards which I was quite proud of. It would be great to see some pics and, by the way, welcome to the forum

                  Thank you all for your kind welcomes! what a friendly lot you are!

                  seahors, I would advise you to get all of your card stock for the invites from your nearest papermill shop! They sell beautiful hammered card in a pick and pack box £3.99 for A5 size and £6.99 for A4. You can mix any papers and cards for that price! It is a truly fantastic price! I travel all the way to chester for mine. Their envelopes are also of great quality and very cheap! Make sure to invest in a decent creasing board with a bone creaser too!

                  and pics......I will post some up for you shortly!

                  thanks again for your lovely welcomes.
