I do all my printing in my home studio in xxxxx, Western Australia.
I don’t live in Perth, can we still work together to print my wedding stationery?

I want to design my own invitations; can you print them for me?
Absolutely, I would love to print your designs, give me a call and we can talk through design specifics and getting started.
How soon should we book in for our wedding stationery package?
To give yourself plenty of time its best to book in as soon as you decide to proceed with your invitations. Consider this as a rough guide to wedding stationery timing.
Save the Date Card6-12 months before the wedding date
Wedding Invitations2-3 months before the wedding date
RSVP Card2-3 months before the wedding date
Thank You CardImmediately following the wedding date or on return from your honeymoon
What’s the difference between 1 and 2 colour printing?
Good question, each new colour printed on your invitations requires a new printing plate, new ink colour and has to be hand printed on each individual invitation, this means that printing two colours takes twice as long as one colour. Please note that blind printing (no colour, impression only) and printing in transparent ink counts as a second colour as it requires its own printing plate and run through the press.
Do you have a minimum order print run?
No, contact me and we can discuss prices.
I want a full stationery package for my wedding, can you print extras?
I sure can, we can add on coordinating save the date cards, gift registry cards, maps, RSVP cards, thank you cards, menus, order of service, table numbers, drink coasters, basically if you can dream it, I can probably print it. I am also a hand letterer and can hand letter wedding signs, place cards, table numbers and envelope addressing.
I love one of your studio invitation collections; can I use it for my invitations?
Definitely, we can even personalise the text, font and colour scheme for your invitations, contact me for pricing.
Can I visit your studio to watch my invitations being printed?
Sorry no, due to work place health and safety regulations its not possible for you to visit my studio.
What sort of paper will my invitations be printed on?
I use beautiful silky soft Cranes Lettra 300 or 600 gsm. The paper is available in crisp white and off white, I can provide you with paper swatches during our consultation(or by mail if you live further afield). I can also source other papers, please contact me with your plans and I will do my upmost to help!
I have a specific colour theme in mind, what ink colours do you have available?
I have a wide selection of ink colours available and will do my best to colour match to your theme.
What is letterpress?
Letterpress is a traditional printmaking method that harks back to a time of handmade, when things were done slowly with love and care. It is a technique of relief printing using a printing press, where the printmaker composes and locks moveable type into the bed of the press, inks it and presses paper against it to transfer ink from the type to create an impression in the paper. Though I have a substantial collection of moveable type and can print text invitations and business ephemera in this method I usually print in a modern letterpress method that employs the use of custom made photopolymer printing plates.
