Hand-Held-Designs Wedding Stationery

.

.

Morning all!  Let’s all give a warm its-nearly-the-weekend-and-payday-thank-goodness welcome to Brides Up North Featured Supplier, Deb of Hand-Held-Designs, who is here to tell us all about her range of beautiful cut wedding stationery. 

.

.

What is the story behind Hand-Held-Designs?

.
My love of card design was re-awakened, whilst studying for a degree in Textiles and Surface Design at CCAD.  I had spent the previous 20+ years in the Hair and Beauty Industry, mostly running my own hairdressing business.  As a hobby I had made cards over the years and sold them at craft fairs, and I had always sold out, but it wasn’t until the card and gift assignment at University that I realised how exciting it was working with paper again. I love having a flat piece of paper, and a craft knife, and cutting out a design I’ve created, and how magical it is seeing it appear little by little, and how beautiful the shadows are when the light catches the design.  I knew then that my heart was with card and paper design, and paper-cut design, and I knew that I wanted to create beautiful stationery, that would be something special and different for a couple’s special day.

.

.
Who is a Hand-Held-Designs bride?

.
A bride who wants a beautiful, contemporary, striking design and loves to add a splash of colour.

.

.

Hand-Held-Designs Wedding Stationery

.

.
Where are you based? Do you work by appointment /online?

.
I am based in Darlington, Co. Durham, and currently work from my small studio based in my home. I work online, via email, and by telephone, and exhibit my stationery collections at selected wedding fairs, where it’s always nice to speak to people face to face.

.

.
Who is a Hand-Held-Designs dream client?

.
My dream client is any couple who falls a little in love with my designs, I have a passion for what I do, and if clients ’feel’ the design as I do, that’s just perfect.

.

.

.

.
Tell us more about your Intri’cut service. Are your designs all bespoke?

.
All the designs are created by myself, and are ‘Intri’cut’ – I call it this as the products are intricate in design and nature, starting with a design that I sketch and develop, then turn into a digital outline that is then sent to my cutting machine for the design to be cut out. It’s not laser cut, it is cut with a fine-detail blade, so has no burnt or scorched edges to it.  I have a ‘core’ range of designs, which I am always working on adding to. These can be adapted to make them more personal to each couple, by adding their chosen coloured inserts to match their theme, and, if required, choosing a coordinating/contrasting foil, which comes in a large range of colours, (metallic and matt). If the bride wishes, some of the designs can have text of choice added to the invitation front, and though I suggest fonts that compliment each other, with an extensive range of commercial fonts and pantone colours available to print with, I’m sure the couple will find something to make their chosen design unique to them.

.

.
What products are available in each design?

.
Most of the designs start with ‘Save the Date’, and go through to all of the wedding day stationery, including table plans and post-wedding ‘Thank You’ cards. Anything I haven’t covered I am working on, so please ask, I don’t want to take a single design and put it on everything. I try to mix it up to make it more unique.

.

.

Hand-Held-Designs Wedding Stationery

.

.
What stationery designs do you think will be popular for next season?

.
Print and patterned stationery will feature with geometric patterns, chevrons and stripes proving popular.
Stationery can be mixed and matched within this theme, providing there is a common colour running throughout and this can look stunning with a real contemporary edge. The ‘Gemini’ range of invitations offers a geometric pattern, that is proving a real favourite and depending on which colours are chosen, it can look contemporary or classic.

.

1920’s glamour, and the ‘roaring 20’s’ theme will influence a lot of design. Art Deco stationery looks amazing, and ties in with the geometric prints and patterns. I have been looking at 1920’s architecture for inspiration for new designs, so watch this space! 

.

Cut wedding stationery will grow in popularity; it is stylish and detailed, it works with any colour scheme and offers something different to the usual printed stationery.

.

.

.

.
What would be your top five tips for Brides up North when choosing their wedding stationery?

.
The wedding day is all about the happy couple, and the stationery should be a reflection of the couple’s taste.

.

The stationery gives the first impression, and sets the tone of your big day, so invitations are very importation. Think carefully if you are planning on having co-ordinating wedding-day stationery, it’s worth thinking about this in the first stages, so everything looks gorgeous on the day. Mention it to your stationer, even if you don’t need it now, ordering it in advance avoids possible disappointment later.

.
Think of your budget – it’s so easy to get carried away with all the accessories and wedding-day stationery. Discuss with your stationer how much you have to spend and your requirements, they should offer advice and recommend solutions to keep within price, e.g. only putting one menu on each table, or supplying place cards left unprinted for you to hand-write.

.
If the invitations you love are a little more expensive, then don’t buy ‘Save the Date’ cards as well as Invitations – just send your invitations out earlier.

.
Book your stationer early – better to have time in hand, you will have plenty of other wedding topics to think about!

.

Order a few extra invitations, at least 5 of each, day and evening, ( I always add in a few extra envelopes), because we all make spelling mistakes at times – particularly when we need to get it right!

.

.
Does all of your stationery have to match?

.
Not necessarily, no. Matching stationery looks beautiful, and you know everything goes together, but mixing and matching can look amazing, as long as there is a common element that ties it all together. Mixing and matching patterns or florals work well, as long as the colour theme runs throughout.

.

.

Hand-Held-Designs Wedding Stationery

.

.
What are your prices/ price range and are you doing any special offers?

.
The range of invitations are divided into two price bands, namely £4.90 each and £5.90 each. This includes two inserts, one coloured and one white with text.  For a small additional cost they can be individually accessorized with Swarovski Crystals, which really finishes them off.

.
I am offering all Brides up North readers, free Swarovski Crystals on all invitations ordered by 1st March.  Please quote Brides Up North when placing your order or enquiry. 
.

.

Which designs are your best sellers?

.
The ‘Flutterby’ range is always a popular favourite, it’s a pretty range and very romantic. The ‘Gemini’ is also proving equally as popular, it can look very classical, but then choose a strong colour behind it, and on the foil detail, and it looks totally different and has a real contemporary look.

.

.

Hand-Held-Designs Wedding Stationery

.

.
What sets Hand-Held-Designs apart from it’s competitors?

.
All Hand-Held-Designs’ intricate collections are individually cut on a cutting machine, which cuts with a blade, producing a nice, crisp edge, without the burnished or scorched edges associated with laser cutting. Hence on the pearlescent card I use, the edges are the same crisp clean finish on the outside and the inside, making it perfect for wedding stationery. Hand-Held-Designs offer beautiful intricate stationery, which can be further enhanced with foil detailing in a range of striking complimentary or co-ordinating colours. As the designs are created by me, the range is unique and original to Hand-Held-Designs.
I offer a professional, reliable service, where customer care is paramount.

.

.
How long does it take to turn around an order?

.
I usually quote 6 weeks from receiving full payment and the final signed proof, but please contact me if you have a more urgent requirement. The insert paper is ordered especially for each order, and this can take up to 4 weeks for delivery.

Love Letters! Supplier Showcase: Amelia Lane Paper PLUS 10% Exclusive Discount For Wedding Blog Readers

Bespoke Wedding Invitations by Amelia Lane Paper

.

.

As a worshipper at the altar of all things resembling new pencils and notecards, this afternoon I am very happy to be delving back into the world of beautiful penmanship, bespoke detailing and pretty paper as we meet Brides Up North Featured Supplier and super talented craftswoman Chanel of the gorgeous Amelia Lane Paper.

.

Heaven.

.

When did Amelia Lane Paper begin and what’s your story?

.

Amelia Lane Paper is nearly one (birthday cake at the ready!) and it’s already been a massive year – working with couples around the world on stationery designs for weddings in a castle in Scotland, private villa in Bali, vineyard in Australia, barns in the countryside and everything in between!

.

I set up Amelia Lane Paper as I have a ridiculous obsession with stationery and I’m also a huge romantic who is overly sentimental about celebrating weddings and other special events – I’m that person who has a Christmas tree up as soon as Halloween is over…

.

{Editor’s note: you are not alone Chanel, not at all!}

.

.

.

.

Do you supply to the North of the UK?

.

I’m based from a home studio in London, overlooking a beautiful garden square and distant rooftops – it’s very Mary Poppins! From here, I work entirely via email with all my clients which means I have worked with couples based all over the U.K. and the world – from Singapore to Sydney. I find email communication works great as it’s quick and my couples are able to communicate with me outside of work hours whenever it is most convenient for them.

.

.

.
How would you describe your style and what products are available in each design?

.

I would describe my style as contemporary and personal to the couples I work with – from whimsical and fun to minimalist and elegant. I love that my designs appeal to modern couples who are looking for something a bit different from the norm that truly reflects them and their wedding day. In my designs, I mix unusual layouts and striking typography with some hand-drawn elements such as custom illustrations or hand lettering and all orders are hand assembled by me in my studio.

.

All of my designs can have coordinating save the dates, day invitations, evening invitations, information cards, rsvp cards, gift inserts, menus, ceremony programs, place cards, table numbers, thank you cards and favour tags. Other items can also be designed on request so really the sky is the limit!

.

.

Do you have any new stationery designs coming up for next season?

.
There are so many new designs due to launch in the next month or two! I’m exhibiting for the first time at the National Wedding Show in London on 28-30 September and will be debut lots of new designs. To give you a hint, there will be new invitation suites featuring watercolours, hand lettering, patterns, nautical elements, woodland creatures, quirky favour tags and so much more.

.

.

.
Can you do bespoke/personalised designs?

.

I absolutely love working on bespoke designs! I do a combination of adding small personal elements to my existing designs and completely custom suites that highlight the couple, their theme and/or location. I have been lucky to work with couples having some really exciting destination weddings as well and have done quite a few variations on my Sydney, New York and London suites for other locations. One of my recent favourites was a destination wedding in hipster-central Portland, Oregon for an American couple that included an illustration of their venue, a tandem bike, two very cute owls and fairy lights so it can be very varied!

.

What would be your top five tips for Brides Up North when choosing their wedding stationery?
.

Leave plenty of time. I always advise my couples to reserve their production start date as soon as they know they want to work with me even if they are still waiting to confirm their wording, colour scheme, guest list etc. I take a 50% deposit to reserve a start date but being a small studio I limit the number of couples I work with to ensure the best possible service and during busy months I get booked out.

.

Order a sample. This is definitely the best way to see the quality of the card, envelopes and printing method and also how the colour will appear in print as it can be different to how it appears on your computer monitor.

.

Ask for what you want and get personal. I love working on orders where there is a personal element which is unique to the couple – for example I recently illustrated two interlinking flags, one American and one French for an expat couple getting married in London and it was a lovely way to bring their cultural backgrounds into their wedding. I am often able to add a small illustration or change an element of one of my designs for free or a nominal fee and so it doesn’t hurt to ask if there is a small thing you would like to change so that the design better fits you and your partner.

.

Choose something special. This kind of relates to Tip 3 but why go bland with your stationery when you’ve got gorgeous flowers, a rocking venue and a kick-ass DJ? You’ve worked hard to make sure the wedding day is going to be awesome so why not get your guests excited about it from day one when sending out your wedding invitations.

.

Count them up. Ordering the right quantity of wedding invitations isn’t actually as straightforward as it seems – you need to factor in one invitation per couple or family, with separate invitations for adult-aged children, then add in some spares in case of addressing mistakes, last minute invites, invitations that get lost in the post and one to keep for yourself! It is also a good idea to start thinking about your ‘day-of’ items from the very beginning – you might not have the information you need to order them but booking your stationer in advance can ensure they will be free to work on your order and you can finalise your quantity and wording closer to the date as these items often get left till the last minute.

.

.

Does all the stationery have to match? 

.

I don’t think the stationery all has to match but I do love when the theme has been continued all the way from the save the date or invitation to the thank you cards, so I guess coordinating would be a better description. Stationery is a great way to set the style of your event as together with the flowers and sometimes the favours, it really is all over your tables – as menus, place cards, favour tags, table numbers etc. so it’s a great way to convey your theme and add colour and interest.

.

.

.

.

.

.

What are your prices?
.

My prices start at £2.40 for an A6 save the date or small wedding invitation (often used as an evening invitation) with envelope and then vary depending on size, extra layers or the level of illustration or hand lettering involved. There is a minimum order quantity of 40 suites and shipping is extra charged at the exact rate. I offer discounts on quantities of 100 or more.

.

The colours can be customised for free on all of my designs and I offer a range of card stock and envelopes as standard, including the increasingly popular kraft recycled card stock and envelopes that are being used by a lot of my couples having rustic or outdoor weddings.

.

Can you offer a special discount to Brides Up North readers?

.

Absolutely! Any bride that books a production date with me (can be up to six months in advance) from visiting Brides Up North will receive 10% of the order total not including shipping. Just book by 30 August 2012 and mention Brides Up North!

.

.

Bespoke Wedding Invitations by Amelia Lane Paper

.

.

.

.
How long do you take to turn around an order?

.
I normally advise around a three-week turnaround as I find it takes about a week to go through the proofing process (and it is also dependent on how quickly the couple can get back to me with any revisions) and I like to leave up to 10 working days for production before shipping. I’ve completed orders a lot faster than this when time has been tight and I always try and accommodate everyone but it is not always a guaranteed option so it’s best to book as soon as you know.

What A Do Weddings Is Not On The High Street (If You See What I Mean!) Plus Limited Edition Wedding Blog Tote Bags Up For Grabs!

January 26th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

Brides Up North Featured Supplier Helen of What A Do Weddings, and the designer of the amazing limited edition Brides Up North tote bags (watch out for a very special hot pink version coming soon!) has some exciting news which will make her range of fabulous wedding stationery and screen printed bags so much more accessible to brides planning their big day. 

.

Helen says:  I’ve been designing stationery for years but recently found a passion for screen printing. A combination of this and a love of all things wedding led me to produce a few ‘wedding themed’ screen printed bags and kids wedding day favour bags.

.

Following good feedback from other wedding suppliers and couples planning their weddings who I’ve met at wedding fairs throughout  2011, I started selling them on Etsy.  They went down a storm, so I decided to try my luck landing an even bigger fish – Not On The High Street.com – where I am now trading under my business name Solographic Art!

.

I know others who’ve failed  and know that over half of applications fail but I believe I have something unique and during December I applied.  I put together a scrapbook of images very loosely and sent them over and to my amazement I was accepted. I wanted it to be right so I commissioned a photographer I love who specialises in product  photography and works with others who sell on the site and she produced some great shots of my work.

.

.

What A Do Weddings

.

.
The product I believe won the application for me is the kids personalised gift bags. They can be coloured in with fabric pens, washed and coloured again and again. They have been bought for a number of occasions but were designed originally as children’s wedding favour bags/activity packs.

Let Them Eat Cake! A Marie Antoinette Styled Wedding Inspiration Shoot In The North West

January 23rd, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

Alex Davies Photography

.

.

Er… WOW!  Lets get this week off to a mighty fine start on the wedding blog, with this fabulous Marie Antoinette styled wedding inspiration shoot by a collective of North West wedding industry suppliers on location at The Belle Époque and sent to me by Brides Up North Featured Supplier Laurel Weddings and her photographer friend Alex Davies Photography

.

If you like your pearls, ribbons and lace – you, my friend, are in the right place!

Lets hear from Alex Davies: Laura (of Laurel Weddings) & I met back in October at a social evening and chatted about collaborating on a shoot together. We wanted to do something innovative and involve quite a few different suppliers. We decided on a Marie Antoinette theme, which would have lots of fresh flowers and the pastel colours would be perfect for Spring. It would also allow our make-up artist to be really creative.

.

Almost at the same time I got in touch with Collette at The Belle Époque in Knutsford. I had always wanted to shoot there and never had the pleasure. We thought that the French theme and décor would go perfectly with what we had chosen to do. I was totally over the moon when Collette agreed that we could shoot there.

Laura knew Nicole from Pearl Bridal Boutique and asked if we could borrow some dresses to which she very kindly agreed. I knew the hair and make-up artist I wanted to use as I had met Fatimah Vadia for MakeupBase at a wedding last year. She works for MAC so she really knows her stuff and is very creative. Laura also asked Francesca from the Cheshire Cat Cake Company to get involved, as we couldn’t have a Marie Antoinette without cake!

I cast for two models on Model Mayhem and we got the lovely Steph and Darcy on board.  Whilst searching for models, Eleanor from Elouise Designs approached me about doing some stationary which I thought would be fantastic.

.

Now it was just a case of organizing for the big day and making sure everyone knew what they were doing!

We shot for most of the day and I was just amazed at all the beautiful flowers, cakes, stationary & dresses. Fatimah did an outstanding job on the models’ hair and make-up. We had an amazing day shooting, everyone worked so hard and it all came together beautifully and worked in so well with the venue. We are looking forward to more collaborations in the future as it really gets our creative juices flowing!
