Wedding Invitations: Peter & Belise

Our talented designed Christie produced this gorgeous invitation set for Peter & Belise. They wanted to incorporate the leaves of the Eucalyptus plant, keeping the design natural, simple and elegant. We designed and printed the Invitations, Information Card, RSVP Card, Printed Envelope and also a Tag to tie onto the front of the invitations. The invitation set was printed onto 300gsm Conqueror card.

Short Run Foils are Here!

It’s an exciting day in our design studio today! We’ve been experimenting with some new foils which will allow us to add foiling to short run digital print work. Foil adds an extra special touch to wedding stationery and invitations, but it can also be used to make your printed promotional material that little bit more luxurious and help you to really stand out from the crowd.

Foils-Blog

We’ll post another update as soon as we have some finished samples for you to have a look at, we’re all really looking forward to seeing what the design team come up with using this new finishing technique.

If you’d like a price for foiling on your short run digital print work please give us a call on 01900 68141 or contact us.

Congratulations Mr & Mrs Wallace!

We’d like to wish Claire & Mark congratulations for their wedding on Saturday 25th June 2016. The Firpress staff were delighted to celebrate and share their special day with them. We were on hand in the weeks leading up to the wedding to design & produce all the wedding stationery required for her big day. This included an A1 table plan, order of service cards, wedding postbox, personalised individual place cards and children’s colouring books – all designed to match in with her wedding invitation set.

We are in love with these watercolour, floral wedding invitations! They are perfect for any summer wedding! The A5 Z-Fold design is ideal for weddings where you need to convey a lot of information to the guests, such as menus, accommodation and transport information. We added a faint watercolour texture as a background to these invitations, which gave them a really nice finish.

Make It A Night To Remember…

School proms are a special occasion for both teachers & students, it’s important to pick a suitable venue that can provide both the space and the service to make the night an extra special one. Lucy wanted to promote the Prom Nights packages that Energus offers, we discussed the options available and decided that an interesting approach would be for the leaflet itself to have an invitation like feel to it. We wanted them to feel like an invitation that you may receive to a formal event, a little more luxurious that your everyday A5 handout.

We decided that a gatefold design would be an interesting approach, it has the ‘doors’ that open on the front to reveal the leaflet information hidden inside. A luxurious pattern was added to the background to further add to that invitation feel and a purple bow completed the design for the front of the ‘invitation’. Inside, we laid out the details in an easy to follow format, adding a collage of photos to show previous Prom Nights that have been held at Energus.

Lucy wanted the promotional invitations to make an impact as soon as they were delivered to the school, she didn’t want the envelope to get pushed aside with all the other white & brown envelopes that are dropped on someones desk. Personalised envelopes are the perfect way to grab attention as soon as the post is delivered. We utilised the same pattern from the invitation itself and included the Prom Nights logo in the bottom right corner. The envelopes were printed in full colour from edge to edge and really added that professional finishing touch.

Lucy was delighted with the final product, we are looking forward to working with her & Faye on the new Energus brochure in the coming weeks.

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. 

Marielle-Table-Plan

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.”
