Custom-Designed Wedding Invitations & Stationery
Tell Your Love Story
What makes us different?
In addition to our expertise and core values, at Curious Pencil we like to get creative and think outside of the box, with original ideas, which will stun you and your guests. Your wedding invite will be the first insight to your big day, and a keep sake. So, why settle for something lifeless, when your wedding invitations and stationery should be full of life and personality to reflect you. We believe all brides and grooms have their own love story and it deserves to be heard. That is why all of our designs are custom-made just for you, in order to compliment your personalities, vision and theme of your day, so you can be sure every detail will be loved by you and your guests.
Hand-drawn Bespoke Designs
Whilst we have a range of illustrative options such as watercolours and digital illustration, we have found our hand-drawnings to be the most popular, we believe this is because it gives a more personal touch. With over 10 years of experience in art and design, we use pencil crayons and our creative vision to come up with designs, which best suit you. Whether it is an image of you as a couple, your favourite pet or the place you will be tying the knot, each design is custom-made as a piece of memorabilia of your wedding day.
Here at Curious Pencil, we have an eye for detail. Each individual item is finished with sheer precision and accuracy. We also have a range of quality finishes such as gold foiling, envelope liners, hand-applied embellishments, pocket-fold envelopes, wax seals, stickers, bellybands, as well as a range of card textures including luxury pearl and much more.
Creative Writing: Story Telling and Poetry
Really want to wow your guests? How about a custom written poem? Or even your own love-story book? Though a picture can say a thousand words, there is nothing better than the perfect words accompanied by a beautiful picture. This is why unlike many wedding invite suppliers; we not only focus on the aesthetic design but also on delivering creative writing with excellence to pull on those heart strings. Our storywriter has a wealth of experience and is a published poet, so you can be assured your love story will be captured beautifully.
Original Creative Ideas
Our creativity is what makes us stand out. In our creative studio, we bounce ideas off each other until we find the perfect ones. We do not stand for the norm… because the norm is pretty boring! We always aim to give you more than one rough sketch idea before developing the final piece. This is to allow you to be apart of the design process, assuring you are 100% happy. We are utterly passionate about wiping the cobwebs off standard wedding invites and stationery and coming up with designs with their own flavour. Whether it’s quirky, fun, simple, sophisticated, classy, earthy… We make your wedding invites and stationary completely and utterly special.
How Does It Work?
Step 1 – The Consultation
We start with a free consultation. Whether it’s face-to-face, over the phone or on Skype, this is a chance for us to get to know you. We want to know the love story between you and your fiancé. Tell us your ideas and wedding theme, throw anything at us and it is our job to create the most unique wedding invite / stationery that will impress all of your guests and reflect both of you. The consultation is also a time for us to understand if you have a particular budget, so we can work out the best suited package for you, whilst showing you some samples. Over the following days, you will then be sent a bespoke quotation based on your needs.
Step 2- Creative Design Process
At the stage of creative design process we will require 50% deposit and it’s time for us to get creative. As everything is 100% bespoke to you, we estimate 2 -4 weeks from start to finish depending on the complexity and how many designs and / or poetry pieces. We will send you scanned draft versions of our progress and layout via email and talk you through these to ensure you are happy with everything.
Step 3 – Approval for Print
Once the design process has been completed, we will send you a finalised version of the layout, words and designs. This is the time to make sure we have all the details correct and check the spellings of names etc because once printed, there is no going back.
Once approved, the remaining 50% will be payable before print. The printing process will take about 7 -10 days (Dependent on if there are any hand-embellished items) before they are received in your hands and cherished by friends and family.
Can We Meet?
We love to meet our Brides and Grooms, whether it’s face-to-face, over the phone or Skype, this is a chance for us to get to know you. If you would like to meet face to face, we can come to you (within 30 miles from Birmingham, UK) or if you prefer we can specify a nice relaxed cosy café instead.
Please fill out the ‘Book A Consultation’ Form or contact us via email on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will contact you to arrange a suitable date and time.
What's The Cost?
Every bride and groom have their own love story, vision and budget, so we treat each bride and groom as individuals. This is why the initial consultation is so important, as we get to know you and can discuss your budget and formulate a bespoke quote suitable for want to achieve within that budget.
What makes us different is that we have various options and price points due to the sheer flexibility we have on style. Varying from paper type, texture, folds, size, embellishments, envelope liners, gold foiling not to mention the options you have with the amount of drawings, pages in a love-story book and / or length of poetry.
So, if you would like to stick to a particular budget, please let us know when you fill the Book A Consultation Form and once we have had the consultation, we will send you a no-obligation breakdown quote.
With that being said if you have an enquiry about a particular product you are interested in, please email us and we will give you an estimate based on numbers: email@example.com
What's The Turnaround?
As everything is 100% bespoke to you, once the deposit has been made, we estimate 2 -4 weeks depending on the complexity and how many designs and / or poetry pieces. We then expect another 7 – 10 days for the printing process, again dependent on the complexities, for example if there are any hand embellished items.
If you have a specific time scale you are working to, please let us know in advance, so we can assure it is achievable.
