What is Bespoke Print?
Bespoke printing is the art of bringing your specific and creative print ideas to life using expert skill, traditional techniques, and textured print methods. We create unique business cards, personal stationery, and event invitations on our two 1960s Original Heidelberg Windmill printing presses. These two beasts create beautiful, textured print, so your print project will impress and be remembered forever.
We pride ourselves on being an utterly bespoke design and printing service, meaning if you have an idea for a print project we can make it come to life. With our expert knowledge of design, print, and stationery etiquette, our meticulous team will guide you through each step in the process from the initial idea right through to completion.
While we prefer to meet you in person to discuss your project, we can happily work with clients remotely if you are based further afield. Get in touch below to discuss your requirements.
How we can help
If you have something specific in mind, only have the faintest glimmer of an idea or have no idea at all we can help create something unique that will reflect your big day as elaborately or as simply as you’d like.
We specialise in Letterpress and foil printing, though can also provide die-stamping, embossing, and high quality full colour printing. We can guide you through which print methods work in harmony together.
As well as the invitations we can create all the stationery for the day in a complimentary style. Everything from order of service booklets, menus, table plans and even signage. The more unique the better.
THEY'VE ARRIVED AND THEY ARE PERFECT!!! I just cried a little bit. Thank you so so so so so much
Thank you so much for the incredible invitations!! They really are so amazing, we’re absolutely thrilled with them, and messages are coming in thick and fast from friends and family - the common theme being that they are without doubt the best wedding invitations ever!
How does it work?
Ideally an in person consultation at our store with Athena, where we’ll show you lots of examples, discuss your ideas and put together a quote for you. To proceed with your project we take a 50% deposit which will secure your place in our art working queue.
2. Artwork & Proofs
Once your order is placed we will create your artwork. This might include custom illustration, monogram creation, typography and calligraphy. We issue proofs by email as a pdf so you can see the layout and colours. We’l update until everything is perfect.
When we have final approval from you we’ll proceed to creating your beautiful invitations on our presses. We can take care of as much as you need, including printfinishing, tying bows, origami folding and calligraphy addresses. We can even post them for you!
