For a unique wedding invitation, give your guests a snippet of your big day to come, and incorporate hand-drawn illustrations of your own wedding venues.
Included in these are illustrations of the bride and groom- all coloured characteristics of which (hair colours, corsages, bouquets, waistcoat & tie colours or any other element that you wish) can be completely personalised to your specifications in order to complement the theme of your wedding.
As standard, the bundle is supplied with matching recycled manilla brown envelopes, but in its fullest form can include RSVP cards including matching envelopes for a hassle-free response from your guests, directions/illustrated map and accommodation cards, order of events timelines, and header/swing tags to complete the bundle.
All supplied with matching twine to tie the bundles together. Please choose your options from the drop-down lists.
Full personalisation details regarding both illustrations and wording will be confirmed with the customer once the order has been placed. Click 'Submit an Order Enquiry' to upload a digital photo of your venue(s) or we can work from an image on a website, just send us the link. Alternatively you can use Google street view to grab a good view and click the link icon to copy and send it to us.
Bundle items (such as directions, gift list, accommodation etc) will be tailored to your requirements and printed on to the same quality card stock. These too will be confirmed following confirmation of order when you will be sent a request for this information.
If you have two venues, i.e. a church and a reception venue, one will be printed to the front and one to the back (see photos). However, if you have only one venue for the day, this is no problem, we can do either two views of the one venue, or use a sketch of something else (bride and groom with wedding car, or bride & groom sitting on a bench under a tree etc etc).
The choice is yours and the sky is the limit. As each sketch is bespoke to you, just let us know your thoughts/requirements and we'll do our best to fulfil your wishes.
All of our invitations are printed onto the highest quality 300gsm GFSmith Callisto card stock
About the illustrations:
Your illustrations will be hand drawn black and white sketches of the location, not a computer generated image, so we can add/remove things you don't want eg lamp posts or bins and add things you do eg your wedding car. We will sketch the view from the photograph and add some key accent colour using a computer.
A PDF proof will be sent to you within 15 working days for you to approve the information and design. This gives you the opportunity to make any changes to the wording and correct errors if needed. We will then provide you with a final PDF file to approve before we proceed to print. Once approved, your finished stationery will be delivered within 15 working days. This 3 week turn around (following approval) on orders, is due to demand. However 'Fast-Track' orders (proof within 7 days, and following proof approval, delivery within an additional 10 working days) are available on request at an additional cost of £150.
Please do not hesitate to contact us for more information or with any special requirements (via the "ask the seller" button ).
Please note, once artwork is approved and printed, no changes can be made or refunds given due to customisation of the products.
