If supporting small and independent companies during your wedding planning is something important to you, then I’d love to introduce you to wedding stationer Emma Jo. Obsessed with all things paper from an early age, Emma has taken that passion and formed her own boutique wedding stationery company. She offers a diverse and ever-expanding collection of beautiful invitations, save the dates and paper goods for weddings.
Wanting nothing more than to provide a relaxed and enjoyable experience for her clients, Emma launched her company in 2009 in response to seeing way too many ‘ordinary’ wedding stationery around. She wanted to design things that were anything but ordinary! She loves nothing more than listening to her couple’s stories and designing their stationery around them.
“I am so proud of the diverse styles we offer”, Emma told me. “My company may be small but I have big ideas and am always exploring new concepts to give our couples more and better options. For example gold foil printing is super popular at the moment, but many of my couples only require small numbers of invites, are tight on time or simply don’t have the budget to go all out. So I designed the ‘Little Gold Heart’ range with all the luxury of a specialist print with a metallic gold foil heart, but the option to have personalised, and printed in small quantities. This is also a great affordable option compared with fully foiled or letterpress stationery, and these invitations start at £3.40 each including envelopes.”
Coming from a design background, the quality of the designs are really important to Emma. “My stationery features original artwork and a distinct typography style, printed to the highest standard on the finest card stock. Wedding stationery doesn’t have to be full of frills and fuss, it can be fun, stylish and cool, just like you and your life!”
“I’m a printer too (I have a degree in Surface Pattern and Print) so I handle the stationery from design to print room, so I offer a truly personal experience. I offer a huge choice of print techniques from digital, flat printing to letterpress, foil as well as laser cutting to name a few!”
So if you’re after a boutique, high end experience and finish, at a fraction of the price that you might expect, you simply have to check out Emma Jo. And if none of her off the shelf designs suit you, she offers a completely bespoke design service from just £200!
