There seems to be a lot of wedding-realted stuff occurring lately... I was commissioned to design and print some fine, monogrammed correspondence stationery as a wedding present - the couple's first 'Mr & Mrs' ephemera and something just for the two of them.
Mr & Mrs Morris' set is letterpress printed in three colours - Pathalo Blue, Ice Blue and Raspberry, and includes: 36 calling cards // 36 square postcards // 36 sheets of ivory writing paper // 36 sheets of coloured writing paper.

The whole thing is printed by hand on the Adana letterpress and comes with appropriate envelopes, all wrapped up in a cloth bound presentation box. I sourced paper, enveloped, box and printed the whole thing to order, so it really was a special gift, and it looks ever so smart, even if I do say so myself. 

If anyone would like a quote for some personalised stationery or anything similar, then I'll happily oblige. Just email me at: alexhiglett@hotmail.com.

A few weeks ago, Louise & Steve commissioned me to design and print their wedding invitations. They're having a 1940s rock'n'roll band playing at their reception, and wanted me to highlight the dancing + village hall element of their day. The classic red and blue are a nod to a kind of village green vintage and the subtle gold brings it up a notch for the special occasion. I screenprinted the invitations on Saturday (120 x 3colours = shoulders a bit sore) on some good stiff 100% recycled card and we decided on brown recycled envelopes. So they're all packed up and ready to be delivered to the happy couple - Thanks to Louise & Steve for a lovely commission.
