What is Bespoke Stationery?
We design and print stationery using your words and choice of typeface & colour. We create birth announcements, invitations, personalised gift tags, thank you cards and more. We have our own signature style, commissioning illustrations from our talented in-house illustrator.
OUR TYPEFACES, COLOURS & ILLUSTRATIONS
Please do note that all screen are different and the colour chart you see on your screen may not be exactly what is printed on your stationery.
Nearly all our illustrations are done by our wonderful in-house artist (& Josie's sister!) - we have many more available than those on the website, please do ask if you have a specific illustration in mind.
Please note that our illustrations are our property and may not be used to form part of, or all, of a business identity.
All our cards are 216gsm white card with a smooth matte finish.
What card colours do you offer?
We only use smooth white card, as it gives the perfect surface on which to print our designs.
Do you provide envelopes?

Can I have a sample?
Unfortunately we cannot send a physical design proof before an order is placed, however we are very happy to send card & envelope samples for colour matching and for you to feel the card quality, please note these will not be full size.
I need to address my envelopes ahead of time – can you send them to me before my cards are ready?
Yes, although we would require pre-payment.

REFUNDS, RETURNS & CANCELLATIONS
What happens if I’m not happy with my order when it arrives?
Personalised bespoke stationery is made to order for each customer, as such refunds can not be given after it has arrived with you. This also applies to phone cases & stamps, unless they are faulty.
However, PLEASE NOTE, that we will review each item before printing, if we feel that the design is incorrect for any reason, we will get in touch with you to discuss an amendment.
If we make a mistake during printing we will of course rectify the situation as fast as possible at no additional cost to you.
What is your returns policy?
We regret we cannot refund personalised stationery unless we have made a mistake. When you have approved a proof, we are not responsible for any subsequent changes. If we have made a mistake, we will of course rectify this and send you the corrected cards as soon as possible! If the wrong product has arrived (in cases where it's come straight from the manufacturer, eg. Phone Cases) please send us a photograph, ideally with something next to it for scale, so we can get the correct item resent to you as soon as possible.
Regrettably phone cases cannot be returned unless faulty/incorrect, as each case it produced to your specification, even if it's not monogrammed. Thank you for your understanding.
