We are really pleased to be able to announce the next few weeks will bring you the release of our handmade card bundles. These bundles will include a selection of cards, sometimes on a theme (for example; birthdays, weddings, Christmas, etc.) and sometimes just a random mix of all sorts. Each bundle will be unique though some cards may appear in several of the bundles. If you like what you see but want something a little more special you will be able to get in touch and have a chat about what we can do for you.

Though our first lot of bundles are not quite ready to be released in the shop we thought we would share some examples of the types of cards that will be appearing in them.

 

As always if you have any questions or just fancy a chat about cards or stationery, you can catch us on 07802724899 or by email enquiries@wishfulinkingltd.co.uk

 

Making a good first impression.

Here at Wishful Inking we aim to create the wedding stationery that you truly want to complement your special day. Your invitations or save the date cards are the first impression that your guests will have of your wedding. This means that you should choose which elements of your wedding you want your guests to get a sneak preview of.

 

Making the right first impression is vital and you don’t want your wedding stationery to feel cheap and flimsy. Luxury

Red, gold and white pocketful wedding invitation available in our online shop.

heavy weight cards and papers are the first step to that feeling of quality. Your guests will be holding your stationery in their hands as they look at it and you want them to know this card, that has dropped through their letterbox, is obviously something important and special.

You may choose to share the elegance and splendour of your wedding day with your guests. This can be achieved using rich colours for your stationery or by enhancing elements of the images and text by using foiling. The metallic lettering can really create a focal point for your whole invitation and capture that feeling of elegance and grandeur in the finished look. Our ‘Time Flies’ invitation uses a rich red colour to create a striking contrast to the white of the main card. To really give it that next level of splendour, the gold foiling is used on the Bride and Groom’s names as well as other key elements of the information.

Summer pocketfold wedding invitations now available from our online shop.

Perhaps you’re having a fun summery wedding and want to give your guests a taste of the sunshine. This can be achieved by using vibrant colours and fun floral motifs. Move away from those traditional calligraphy fonts and bring in something a little more quirky to show off the more playful side of your big day. You can even bring these features in right from your save the date cards too. The soft watercolour feel of our ‘Summer Fun’ magnetic save the date cards really adds to the warm and fun effect of a great day at the beach.

There are so many ways to make a great first impression with your wedding stationery. Why not drop us an email at enquiries@wishfulinkingltd.co.uk and find out how we can help.

Alice In Wonderland Bespoke Wedding Invitations – Feature Friday

So this week our feature Friday post is telling you a little more about the beautiful Alice In Wonderland bespoke wedding invitations we created.

The concept is quite simple. The clients wanted invitations with a pocket on the inside and they wanted it to fit their purple Alice In Wonderland themed wedding. We spent a while playing with a few different concepts for the front of the invitation before deciding on this playing card. The ‘D’ and ‘K’ in the corners are the first initials of the Groom and Bride respectively. As a secondary colour at their wedding will be gold we decided to incorporate that colour into the invitations with the little gold letters and hearts. The three gold hearts across the front of the invitation flow quite nicely and link the two initials together visually.

The inside of the invitations (more pictures can been viewed in the bespoke creations gallery) feature a beautiful embossed clock motif that was added to fill a big expanse of purple that was too distracting. We also used the clock embossing on the backs of the RSVP cards. The inside of the invitation has a panel on the left inviting all their guests to the wedding itself and then a reversable panel on the right tucked into the pocket with details of the reception on one side and information about local taxi firms and hotels on the other. Also in the pocket you can find the RSVP card and its matching envelope.

The RSVP cards and envelopes were created using custom stamps that we also produced for the couple. This meant it was a much quicker process to address the RSVP envelopes. Although you can’t see the front of the envelopes for data protection reasons they had the RSVP address stamped on and then they were embossed in gold.

The couple had a lot of positive feedback on their invitations and have told us that a few times they have been to visit friends and spotted their invitations up on bookcases or mantelpieces.

Alice in Wonderland Sneak Peek

So we thought we would share a little sneak preview of a set of bespoke wedding invitations that we have been working on.  This silver wax seal (although they were in gold in the end) was used to finish the envelopes. The White Rabbit and letters motif was based on a playing card using the initials of the couple getting married.
