10% off wedding stationery sets

 

After running our hugely successful competition to win up to £250 worth of wedding stationery, to show our huge appreciation to those of you who showed an interest in getting your wedding stationery with us, we are now running a new offer to get 10% off your wedding stationery sets between now and Christmas!

For those of you who know Kaizen but don’t know about Kaizen Weddings, we thought this week we would give you a full run down of the full services we can provide for brides and grooms to be for before, during and after the wedding day, and indeed what you can get 10% discount on. 

Let’s start with your planning before the wedding day, and even before the invites go out. Some items you might already be thinking of, should you be newly engaged and have set a date, are save the dates and perhaps items such as be my bridesmaid cards. We can both design and print these items for you in a variety of designs and beautiful cards that are sure to make a first big impression of your wedding day to both your wedding party and guests! 

Once your wedding guests know the date and you’ve got your wedding party organised, wedding stationery items that you may then be thinking about that Kaizen Weddings can help you with include:

- Wedding day and evening invites
- RSVP Card
- Information Card
- Gift cards 

After you’ve sent all your beautifully designed and printed stationery  out and have received your rsvps back and have final numbers, you will then be starting to plan any printed items for the day itself. 

Sometimes venues may provide some stationery for the day, but we find a lot of our clients like to put their own stamp on their wedding day stationery. Items we include in our stationery sets for the actual day include: 

- Welcome signs
- Place Card
- Table plans
- Order of services

After the big day is over, the last item of stationery you will have to think about will be your thank-you cards. We can also include thank-you cards in our stationery sets, which can either tie in with the rest of your stationery design or photos designed with in keeping fonts are also extremely popular for our thank-you cards. 

Here at Kaizen Weddings, we can create bespoke stationery sets, so if there are items you perhaps don’t need or items you do need that you can’t see listed,  we are always more than happy to make up unique sets for our clients. Every bride and groom and wedding is unique and we pride ourselves on the bespoke elements of our work. 

If you are starting to plan your wedding - get in touch for a free consultation! Either call us on 028 9002474 or email us at weddings@kaizenprint.co.uk. Our studio is also open 9-5pm Monday - Friday and we welcome any walk-ins.

Happy Wedding Day Aileen and Damien!

28 September 2016 14:30:00 BST

This weekend we see one of our brides to be, Aileen, get married to her fiancee Damien in Sacred Heart Church and celebrating at Mill Park Hotel, Donegal after. Here at Kaizen Weddings, we pride ourselves on the bespoke styles of wedding stationery that we can create for our clients and we loved working to Aileens unique brief, as indeed it was a design style that we hadn’t carried out before. 

Aileens initial brief to us was that it was really important to her that we incorporated the coat of arms from both herself and Damien’s families into the main design of the invite. This was something that was personally significant to Aileen, as the coat of arms that would be shown throughout her wedding stationery was to show the coming together of their 2 children and families, so we tried to reflect this as much as possible throughout the design. 

Our first task was locating suitable coat of arms images that could be designed together and that Aileen was also happy with, and after a lot of searching, we got the perfect combination that Aileen was delighted with. The coat of arms on the design for Aileens invites was the main feature, as it was so personal for her. We printed these with black design on a beautiful textured cream card, which printed great. Black design on kraft and cream cards are really simple yet effective and lets the special card types really blossom whilst your text and images still stand out strong. 

We have many clients coming to us who think things aren’t possible to be created for their wedding stationery or have something a bit more unique and personal and we would strongly advise to give us a call or email and we are more than happy to advise, if you don’t ask, you don’t get!

Should you be preparing for the big day and are starting to consider wedding stationery, why not call in and see us in the studio or give us a call or email on 0289002 2474 or weddings@kaizenprint.co.uk

choosing your wedding wording

You’ve finally chosen your design and print options for your wedding stationery and now have to send over all the information to your wedding stationer and suddenly realise that you don’t have a clue what you actually want your invites to say!  This is a common problem and this week at Kaizen Weddings we look at some of the choices and obstacles you can come across when choosing wording for your wedding stationery. 
 
Like many things that crop up when planning a wedding, this may not have been something that you have even began to think about when selecting your wedding stationery, however it’s something that you may like to keep in mind when going to your wedding stationer. Having all your wording and details prepared should also make the process a bit smoother for both yourself and your supplier. 
 
Lets start with the easy bits, some essential information that you may want to have on your invites will include: 
 
- names of your parents or other hosts
- first name and surname of yourself and your partner
- Wedding venue/s
- date, month and year of the wedding 
- address to which guests should reply
- a reply date
 
If you want to go down the traditional wording approach, some things we would recomend would be: 

- The Bride's name should come before the Groom's name and be written in full
- Numbers are spelt out as words and not the digits e.g 2 should be two
- If you are having a religious ceremony you should have phrases such as 'the honour of your presence' and if your are having a civil ceremony you can use terms such as 'the pleasure of your company'
- Dates and times should not be abbreviated e.g 12pm should be outlined as twelve o'clock
- When it comes to your evening invitations, you can simply change the wording to 'Mr and Mrs... request the please of your company at their evening reception'
 
If you are going for a modern invitation, some wording approaches we would recomend as follows: 
 
- You can include fun and inviting sayings such as "dinner, drinks and dancing to follow", "invite you to share in the festivities'", "What song would you like to dance to?" on the RSVP Cards 
- Adding icons or love quotes to personalise your invite
- It is quite common for couples to start their invitation of with 'together with their families'
- The evening invitation can be informal by adding the text such as 'come and party with us and we celebrate our marriage'
 
When it comes to your evening invites, we would recommend you send them at the same time as your day invites, this allows guests not to wonder if they have been invited to your wedding day or not.
 
Should you be starting to plan your wedding stationery, please feel free to drop us a call or email on 028 90 022474 or weddings@kaizenprint.co.uk for a chat about what you are looking for. Alternatively we are always more than happy to meet you in person and accept walk in appointments, our studio is open 9-5pm everyday!

Choosing card for your wedding stationery

7 September 2016 14:30:00 BST

wedding-stationery-card

One of the most frequently asked questions we get here at Kaizen Weddings is ‘what can you print my wedding stationery on?” This week we look at the various different cards and materials you can print your stationery and wedding day items on!

For products such as your save the dates, invites, order of services, menu prints and table number and place cards, these should always be printed on a heavier card, usually a weight ranging from 270gsm – 350gsm.  A heavier card means that your items will be durable for both postage and your recipients receiving them and for printed items on the day such as menus and table cards, a heavier card will sit up nicely should it need to be placed within anything on your table.

Now that you know that you should be printing on card and what type of weight of card, the next thing to think about is the colour and texture of card you wish to go for. Some of the most popular card types for weddings often have an uncoated feel to them, however if you are going for more of a modern design then you may wish to choose a silk card, which will provide more of a nice sheen on the stationery.

Your colour and type of card will largely tie in with your wedding colour scheme and theme, should you have one. Some of the most popular colours and types of cards to think about when deciding include:

-        - Frosted White Card

-       - Ivory/Cream Card

-       - Pearl Card

-       - Kraft Card

 
Once many of our clients have decided on their card types for print, then the next commonly asked question is what should I print my table plans and any venue signage on?

Any table plans standing on an easel are most commonly printed on a rigid foamex board, ranging from size A2 to A0, depending on how many tables and guests you are having. If your table plan is going to be placed in a frame, then you will print your table plan on a paper material, as a thinner paper weight will be easier to place into the frame and sit perfectly flat for you.

In terms of venue signage, an increasingly popular trend is putting a strut card on the back of a foamex print – which means that you don’t have to prop any of your signage against anything and allows the sign to stand alone, be it outside a church, or within a hotel.

Should your wedding be fast approaching and you want to put out reminders of the date, invites themselves or decorations for the wedding venue, why not call in and see some of our brilliant samples and take away our paper swatched to look at in the studio!

Winter Wedding Stationery Inspiration

17 August 2016 13:30:00 BST

winter wedding stationery

Having your wedding during the winter months from September to December gives you so much scope to use different types of designs and materials for your stationery than you would in the summer months. We’ve noticed the increasing popularity of the winter wedding and have put together some ideas and inspiration for your dream winter wedding!

Your design and colour scheme will be one of the first things you are thinking of when choosing your wedding stationery. When we mention winter wedding stationery, people often assume a Christmas themed invite. We’re here to say that’s not always the case and there are many subtle ways you can incorporate this beautiful season into your wedding stationery set.

 

Alternatively, if your wedding is right in the middle of the festive period, you may want to celebrate this fact and incorporate some Christmas themed items into your stationery! Nothing wrong with a hint of Christmas Cheer!

 

If you are going for the subtle approach, one way of doing so is to use a hit of greenery in your design, which can often create a nice winter theme, without going too Christmassy. We have also found around this time of year that silver and grey is extremely popular with our brides and grooms to be, once again giving that subtle undertone of the season.  These types of designs and colour schemes can be complimented by being printed onto pearl, frosted white or kraft card (All of which Kaizen Weddings of course hold in stock!)

 

Alternatively, if your wedding date is closer to Christmas and you really want to go that extra mile and mark the season and occasion in style, then you may want to consider designs with red floral or perhaps a wreath design, which will really emphasise the season. These types of designs can also really stand out with a silver or gold foil print, making your winter invites truly sparkle with your guests!

 

If you are currently planning a winter wedding and need some inspiration with your wedding stationery, get in touch! We love to meet all our brides and grooms to be and welcome anyone to call in for an initial free consultation and which also includes complimentery paper swatches and samples. If you would like further information on our winter stationery sets or would like to discuss the stationery for your big day, please also feel free to drop us a call or email on   028 9002 2474 or weddings@kaizenprint.co.uk

halloween invites

This week at Kaizen Weddings, we've been working on a range of seasonal wedding stationery. First up, some eerily great Halloween themed designs!

We’d normally recommend sending your wedding invites out around 6-8 weeks before the big day, so if your stationery has slipped to the bottom of your to-do list, don’t worry, you’ve still got time!

If you’re having your wedding around Autumn and Halloween time or even Halloween Day itself (an increasingly popular wedding date), an idea for the design of your wedding stationery is to base it around the season. Who doesn’t love a themed invite?

To make things a bit easier for our clients, we’ve come up with some great Halloween based designs.  If you have a specific design brief in mind, we are also more than happy to work to this and create a bespoke and custom made design for you. Once you have chosen your design, next step is to choose a nice card for this time of year. We think our cream card or a spooky uncoated white card looks great with an autumnal or Halloween themed card!

If you are on the other end of the spectrum with your wedding planning and your wedding isn’t until October 2017, why not start thinking about themed save the dates. Having your wedding this time of year gives you so much scope for a fantastically themed seasonal design, which can be carried throughout your wedding stationery from invites to table plans and spooky wedding signage!

If your wedding is fast approaching and you are panicking about your stationery, let us help you out! Call or email us for a free consultation with one of our Kaizen Weddings Team on 028 9002 2474 or weddings@kaizenprint.co.uk

wedding stickers and bellybands

Here at Kaizen Weddings, we have an exciting new addition to our wedding stationery sets for that perfect finishing touch, bellybands and stickers!

As many of our clients now choose to go with more than one piece of stationery, such as rsvp cards, information cards and sometimes an order of the day, a bellyband is both a practical and sophisticated way to keep all your stationery items together when hand delivering or posting.

Your bellybands can be stuck together or, an increasingly popular addition to the bellybands with many of our wedding clients is a customised sticker to hold them together. You may perhaps choose to have yours and your partner’s initials or date of the wedding on the stickers. Alternatively your sticker design can be a pattern or colour inkeeping with the rest of the stationery.

When choosing the paper for your bellyband, you may wish to go with the same paper as the rest of your set; the other option is to choose a different texture or card to compliment you stationery paper. For example, if you have a nice frosted white textured paper for your stationery, we have had some clients then choosing a pearlised style card for their bellyband to give it that extra special touch!

If you are getting your invites personalised by your wedding stationer or your invites are generic and no writing is required on them, then getting your wedding stationer to package these all up for you is also a great time saver amongst so many tasks and planning you are already carrying out for your big day.

Should you already have your stationery designed but require some extra touches on the design front and want something to package your set together to really set it off, get in touch with us for a free consultation with one of our Kaizen Weddings team on 02890 02474 or weddings@kaizenprint.co.uk
