May 2023 Update: New Website, New Sample Packs, New Collections and more!
It has been a long time since our last update back at the end of January - this year has really been flying by. We’ve been extremely busy since then, working with so many couples on their invitations and on the day pieces, and Anna has been posting some amazing photography of our work on our blog here as well as on Instagram. With everything that has been happening, it is surprising we have managed to get so much done - but I wanted to run through all of our latest changes and updates!
You might have noticed but back in March we launched our brand new website. The new design is faster, smoother, easier to navigate and find the items you’re looking for. It also has a bunch of new features that we’re still in the process of rolling out and will build on as we go.
We still have more tweaks to come to this (websites are never finished!) but we hope that you enjoy browsing and seeing the new pages. We also have updated all of the content on the site, so please make sure to check out our updated FAQs section, our About us, and also the new sustainability page where we detail everything we have been up to lately.
New Sample Packs
This was a project that we have had in mind for a couple of years now, but hadn’t had the time or bandwidth to tackle until recently. We’ve been listening to customer feedback for some time, as well as thinking about what we want the sample pack to be when you purchase it. With this in mind, we went back to basics and built out a more luxurious pack, one that will help you build the exact stationery you are looking for and demonstrates everything we have to offer.
The new pack comes in a brand new luxury box and sleeve, with the pack featuring our amazing stationery as usual in the collection of your choice. We have added some new items in the pack which will help in choosing your wedding stationery, including a swatch pack with every colour we offer, and a booklet outlining the order process and what you can expect from us after purchase.
This new sample pack format has been shipping since late March, and you can view all of our sample packs here.
This quarter we wanted to work on two brand new collections with a more traditional look and feel, yet still have the hallmarks our brand is known for - a wide range of options for invitations and on the day pieces, with customisation choices that makes your stationery feel custom. The new collections are called Verona and Bordeaux, and we’re excited to share them with you.
Verona is a traditional serif collection, with hand drawn floral illustrations in a variety of options. Elizabeth spent many hours creating three different sets of floral illustrations that can be chosen to be added to your pieces, featuring sweet peas, orchids and roses. Each can feature amongst a personalised monogram, on printed vellum jackets, stamped into wax seals, and more. My favourite pieces are the wax seal and the vellum jacket, as well as the place card coasters.
You can view Verona here.
Bordeaux is a traditional calligraphy suite - a romantic collection featuring one of our favourite calligraphy fonts yet - paired with a monogram and all of the pieces you have come to expect from us. Again, Bordeaux works beautifully across all of its invitation suite and on the day pieces, and I love the jackets and signage with flowing calligraphy - perfect for a traditional event.
You can view Bordeaux here.
I’m excited to see all the new pieces and work going out to customers with these launched, and rest assured we already have some new ideas on the way that are going to be our biggest launches yet (more on that later this year).
We’ve also added in pieces for our older collections that needed some love - you can see these now have more options for on the day pieces and invitation items than ever before.
We’re proud to announce that during the last quarter we planted an additional 302 trees bringing our total to nearly 4000 trees since we started our campaign! We’re looking forward to planting even more over the coming year, and it feels great knowing that we’re giving back.
I hope everyone is having a great year so far - if you're looking to organise your stationery for your wedding at the end of the year please get in touch, we can't wait to work on your event with you.
