Our senior designer Steph has been hard at work creating the graphics for the van, using our new re-vamped branding. We wanted it to be eye-catching and deliver all the important information you need to know about Firpress including how to contact us and the services we offer. We handed our design across to First Image Signs who worked their magic, creating the vinyl graphics to cover the van. 

We have some snapshots of the work in progress as the van was covered from top to bottom in vinyl graphics, we will be sharing them with you very shortly!

We would like to say a huge thank you to First Image Signs who provided a first class service from start to finish, we would highly recommend them for any signage or vehicle graphics you may need in the Workington or Cumbria area.

Wedding Table Plan: Tulips & Lace

We created a beautiful bespoke range of wedding stationery for Marielle & Kim, which included wedding invitations, menu cards, rsvp cards and also matching table name cards, place cards and finally the matching table plan for the big day. Table plans are an essential element to any wedding, allowing guests to take a look at which table they will be sitting at during your wedding reception and informing them of who else they will be spending the afternoon chatting too. Table plans can be produced in any size, but for an average sized wedding (up to 120 guests) we would advise opting for an A2 size. If you have a larger wedding (120+ guests) we would advise opting for an A1 table plan. 

Marielle & Kim opted for an A2 sized table plan, printed onto 190gsm semi gloss and mounted onto foamex. Foamex is a lightweight display board, that creates a sturdy, thick yet lightweight backing for your table plan. All you need to do is pop it on the easel at your venue and you’re ready to go! Marielle & Kim’s table plan was styled to match their wedding stationery suite. We used textured paper backgrounds combined with lace and floral elements to create a unique vintage design.

Table plans do not need to be laid out as per the layout of the room, usually you will have the top table across the top and then the rest of the tables organised in rows underneath. Design wise, they can look however you want them to. We do usually advise that you match them with the rest of your stationery suite, to keep the theme of your wedding stationery consistent.

The Bride & Groom were thrilled with all the stationery they received from Firpress Printers:

“The staff at Firpress printers were very friendly and helpful. Stephanie knew exactly what we wanted and created a unique design for us. Lots of people commented on the invites and how lovely they were. We ordered invitations, rsvp cards, order of service, place cards, table name cards, table plan and will be returning shortly for thank you cards. We would not hesitate to recommend Firpress for wedding stationery.”
