I often have brides trying to describe their colour scheme to me; this can be tricky as ‘taupe’ can mean 100 different things to 100 different people. This simple app may just make our lives a little easier as it allows you to pick your EXA…CT colour. Or if you are still stuck on what colours to incorporate at your wedding you have to check out this link. You can easily view colour combinations that have been created by others or why not create your own unique colour scheme – have fun!

Okay, so like most other designers I have a font fetish… I find it difficult not to post about every beautiful font I stumble across; however this one deserves a huge mention. I think it may just be the most beautiful font in the whole world. And, just a couple of days after its online debut, it has officially been added to our font arsenal. I honestly can’t wait for that very special project to come along where we can use this amazing font.

A great idea for the ‘DIY’ bride – Your wedding monogram or logo is usually designed very early on during your wedding planning journey and often the same design would be used throughout your stationery from your save the dates to your thank you cards.

If you are planning on printing your own invitations and other stationery items, getting a rubber stamp designed and made would be a great way to personalise each item and have a common thread running throughout all the stationery. Imagine your logo stamped on the back of your invitation envelopes, on cocktail napkins and thank you tags.

These stamps are something that you can keep and use for your own personal stationery, long after the wedding is over. Contact us to design your unique logo and to transform it into a useful little tool, giving your stationery it own exclusive edge.
