Stationery Options

Templated Stationery

Much the same as buying a birthday card from a store, templated designs are completely unchangeable. You buy it as-is and physically write in, by hand, your details for the event. There’s no individual consideration for you or your event and you’ll probably never talk to the designer.

On the bright side, it’s cheap and easy.

Personalised Stationery

Similar to templated products in that the design is usually established without consideration of your input but some details of your event will be included (such as your name, date and venue etc.).

This is a smart move for people who don’t want to write, by hand, hundreds of pieces of detailed information or the involvement of working with a professional designer to fully customise their stationery.

Personalised Stationery is the standard choice for weddings and the quality will range from amateur to expertly designed. It’s moderately priced but you might one day receive the same wedding invitation from one of your friends as you had on your day.

Customised Stationery

The result of a collaborative process working with a professional designer to produce your ideal stationery. It takes into consideration your specific likes and dislikes to introduce the tone of your event the moment people receive it. It’s the most expensive but least common option and means you don’t have to compromise with what might be the only time you invest in wedding stationery.

Like Peonies? Custom stationery offers you the choice to include them. Hate dandelions? You can exclude them completely.

Customising your stationery is equivalent to a tailor made suit, it’s the highest quality and fits you just the way you want it to.

At Jolly Edition we’re known for our custom work. We talk frequently with our clients to form the best result for them. Every one of our custom suites in sketched, inked, hand-painted and digitised for that specific event. We don’t cut corners and we make every client feel like the only client we have.

There’s no right or wrong type of stationery for your wedding. Everyone’s different and they make the choices that best suit them. We’ll soon introduce personalised options for those clients that prefer them but we will always pride ourselves on making personality-driven stationery for weddings and events.

February 6, 2020

Starting the year off with some personal projects. Working with clients pushes me forward and keeps me on my toes. To keep up that momentum, sometimes I need to clear the cobwebs with projects that are unconnected with the expectation of client work to focus on play. Below are a handful of projects I’ve made Read the rest.

December 2019’s Projects

January 7, 2020

The last month of the year deserves a brief retrospective and if there’s one thing that sticks out to me about 2019, it’s the increasing demand for crests that depict the nuances of the combined personality of each couple + each wedding. I’m featuring a collection of standout crests from the past year.
