CALLING ALL ALTERNATIVE BRIDES-TO-BE!

It’s Wedding spritz hour with our Flora and Limone wedding invitations

We’re all unique, with different tastes and strong opinions on what is tasteful/cool/appropriate, never more so than in the run up madness that is planning your own wedding. You will have ‘said’ strong opinions, thrust upon you from all sides, almost entirely undesired and not requested, but you battle through, because you’re a Bridal Warrior! Thankfully selecting your wedding stationery is usually a decision you are (blessfully) allowed to make yourselves….and breeeathe. But what if, when you come to search for your dreamy yet bold, hip, fashion-inspired wedding invitations, you are met with reserved pastel cuteness, which doesn’t reflect you as a couple at all? It’s a problem we found ourselves when planning our wedding last year, we wanted edgy, bright, bold wedding stationery with a strong design/fashion aesthetic. Frustrated by all the prettiness, we embarked on our own printed stationery company, including a diverse and eclectic wedding collection.

Our Limone with Victoriana type, Flora, and double-sided Flora with Classic type wedding invitations

While we have designed the above Limone and Flora invitations with an element of occasion and delicateness, they will also announce your big day with a bit of punch and fun with our vibrant prints. Inspired by holidays in Sicily, and English country gardens, they are perfect for Spring and Summer celebrations alike.

Our Tropicana wedding invitations come with a choice of 3 different type designs, and co-ordinating envelopes with sticker seals

We have created fun, quirky exciting wedding stationery, for fun, quirky exciting couples; this is not for lovers of the shy and retiring aesthetic! All of our wedding invitations come with our new co-ordinating sticker seals which can be personalised with your names, as well as a choice of 3 different typography designs-as we know how important it is that your wedding stationery feels ‘like you’.

So many options…our Azteca design made to suit you

Ou range includes co-ordinating designs for save the dates, invitations, envelopes, thank-you cards and notebooks. The possibilities really are (almost) endless, whether you’re having a full on Mexican theme, or subtle geometric accents, giving you creative control even if you’ve never picked up a paintbrush in your life. So come along to CL.AM and have a play, it’ll be so fun, you won’t realise you’re wedding planning! We will be exclusively unveiling our wedding stationery range at The Quirky Boutique Wedding Fair, in Brighton on Sunday May 11th; a must for all you betrothed quirks 😉

PEN & INK DAY

Image

It’s already day 3 of National Stationery Week which means it’s ‘Pen & Ink Day’. One of the days I was most looking forward to, and a chance for us to introduce our new LIMONE design, perfect for a lovely sunny Wednesday; arriving at CL.AM soon!

There’s no better way to show someone whom you may have been slightly neglecting, that you do honestly care, and you are thinking of them, than a beautiful handwritten note, on equally beautiful stationery. It goes so much further than a dismissive text or email, it shows that you’ve taken time out of your busy life to not only select luxurious, note-worthy stationery, but also to select your words carefully. A luxurious handwritten letter can’t contain the usual LOLS, OMG’S or old school PTB’s that often pepper our everyday digital correspondence, and it’s all the better for it. I think we could all do with taking a step back from online communication now and then, and get back to basics with a  bit of old-fashioned pen and ink. You may find it becomes addictive and offers a little respite in an otherwise media saturated day.

We have a range of unique fashion-inspired, printed stationery just waiting for you to snap up, and adorn with meaningful words. Even better, to celebrate NSW14 it’s 20% off our entire handmade collection, all week with code NSW.

So this Wednesday, and this Sunday which is official ‘Write a letter day’- why not take a pause, and make someone smile you haven’t seen in a while. After all Correspondence is Cool! x

AZTECA RANGE AND INSPIRATION

Image

 

As print/graphic designers, geometrics have always been ‘our thing’-particularly with a tribal, ethnic edge to them. After our honeymoon travelling around Mexico this summer, we both fell in love with the gorgeous textiles, weaving and handicrafts of Oaxaca; as our stuffed flat of global treasures prove! The use of colour, pattern and technique was truly inspiring and overwhelming when it came to designing the range, and in particular ‘Azteca’. Another constant source of geometric print inspiration is Mara Hoffman; her S/S 14 RTW Catwalk show, (as always) was a gorgeous, dramatic explosion of tribal prints (http://www.style.com/fashionshows/complete/S2014RTW-MHOFFMAN), as was Valentino’s exquisitely beaded maxi-gowns in horizontal aztec patterns, in his S/S 14 RTW show (http://www.style.com/fashionshows/complete/S2014RTW-VALENTIN).
