Let’s work together to make your calligraphy vision come true

Taking inspiration from your wedding story and the life you’re creating together I will work with you and your vision to design a unique suite from scratch – from sketches to the final wax seal detail. Marrying that perfectly imperfect handmade touch of calligraphy with elegant timeless design and delicate details. I aim to create effortlessly beautiful keepsakes for you to reminisce over for years to come.

 Each bespoke invitation suite starts with hand drawn sketched concepts.

How it works

Immerse yourself in the bespoke design experience —

 

Step 1 – Inspiration

The sky is the limit! Complete my bespoke stationery form, share your overflowing Pinterest boards (I adore Pinterest so don’t be shy with your ideas and inspiration) and let’s start by chatting through your ideas.

After you’ve shared your big dreams, wedding vision and potential needs and no-no’s I will share a proposal and pricing based off your priorities and budget.

 

STEP 2 – Design

Next, it’s time to turn that inspiration into your dream suite. We’ll go through sketched concepts, printing methods and gush over the details that bring it all together. Don’t worry if your initial ideas have evolved, we’ll work through all of that to make sure your suite is perfectly tailored to you.

After you have approved the concept I will get into all those flourished details and calligraphy strokes that will make your wedding suite frame-worthy.

 

Step 3 – PRINTING & ASSEMBLY

You’re in love with your proof and it’s time for some printing magic. Whether you’ve opted for elegant letterpress, eye-catching gold foil, dramatic white ink or flat printed watercolour effects your suite is getting ready to enchant your wedding guests.

Oh, and if you need some thoughtfully assembled details or  calligraphed envelopes to make your invites stand out amongst the usual bills and banking letters I’ve got your back.

 

Step 4 – Celebrate

Pop the champagne and do a little dance as the excited RSVPs are coming in. And if you need some unique memorable calligraphy touches to add to your special day I’ve got you covered there as well. Let me serve you up with some lovingly crafted details that goes delightfully well with your bespoke suite. Wrapping it all up with a perfect silk ribbon.

Frame worthy printing options

Are you as obsessed with paper and printing as I am? Here is an overview of the methods I offer. But if you have other methods you’re keen to explore don’t hesitate to ask. I’m always keen on trying new ways of making wedding paper extra special and personal.

Ps. Don’t worry if all the options are making you dizzy, that’s why I’m here. I’ll help make suggestions for printing and paper based off your preferred aesthetic and budget.

 

Digital printing

Cost: £

Texture: Smooth

Ink colour: Unlimited

This is the most common type of printing, think of it as your home printer but much better quality. If you’re looking for those dreamy watercolour effects or more than two colours this is the option for you.

Letterpress printing

Cost: ££ - £££

Texture: Impression

Ink colour: 1-2

Letterpress is beautifully luxurious and leaves an impression where the inked surface is pushed into the paper. It’s an old form of printing and can be expensive as it involves designing a special plate per colour for your design. Each plate is printed separately and it’s also this plate that leaves the stunning printing texture.

Hot foil printing

Cost: £££

Texture: Metallic 

Ink colour: 1

Traditionally used to create the most stunning metallic effects. Think gold, rose gold, copper, silver etc. But nowadays you can also get beautiful and fun effects with neon and pastels. This is a great method if you’re looking for those popping shiny effects that can’t be achieved with digital printing. As with letterpress this is a luxury printing method requiring a more advanced setup, making it more expensive than digital printing. But the result is simply magical.

FAQ

What other couples have wondered

 

How long does it take until I have my invites?

The bespoke process typically takes around 8 weeks, sometimes a bit longer. It will all depend on design complexity, your preferred printing method and if you want those extra mesmerising calligraphy details such as bespoke wax seals or envelope calligraphy. I encourage you to plan ahead but don’t be afraid to reach out even if you’re cutting it a bit close to the deadline. I will do my very best to work some magic for you.

 

How many invites should I order?

Think of invites per household rather than per guest as a starting point. Then I recommend adding at least 10-15 extras to give room for last minute additions to your guest lists. And don’t forget about the beautiful keepsakes these will make (I’m all about the keepsakes). For envelopes I require 20% extra. I put a lot of love and detail into my work but I’m only human and ink splatters do occur! 

 

How does the design approval process work?

You will get your own personal space in my Dubsado workflow. This makes it easy and accessible for you to add your feedback right next to the designs. Up to three rounds of revisions are included in the design fee, which is usually more than enough. But don’t worry if you still feel like there’s some little tweaks that need to be perfected. Further adjustments can be requested for a small fee to ensure you’re completely head over heels in love with your invites.  

 

I absolutely adore one of the suites on your site. Can I have it as it is? 

Of course! If it’s one of my semi-custom suites that you want to make your own you can simply choose that design as the starting point. I can then update it with your preferred colour and printing options to make it perfect for your wedding. If it’s something I’ve designed for a shoot simply share the photo with me and I can design a suite based on that for you. 

 

How do I get started?

Yay, I can’t wait to get to know more about you. Complete my contact form or send me an email at hello@mathildalundin.com. And please feel free to share any overflowing Pinterest boards you may have. I will be in touch asap about how we can make your dream wedding paper reality.
