Congratulations, you’re engaged! As you start to receive cards from friends and relatives to celebrate your happy news, it’s time to get planning. Wedding stationery is a special part of the preparations as it creates an opportunity for personalised items that can be kept as keepsakes. To help you test out some design and print ideas, you could start with engagement party invites.
The digital printing service at Sherwood Universal enables us to produce a range of wedding stationery from small to large quantities. With our team of graphic designers, we can work with you on personalised ideas to make your wedding unique and memorable.
Where to Start
For most weddings, one of the most important details to start with is the guest list. This information is crucial for venue arrangements and the budget. Once you have an idea of the guest list and budget, you can begin to get creative.
Some couples have a clear idea of the style and themes that they want for their wedding. You may enjoy working on a wedding style/mood board together.
You could do this as a paper collage using wedding magazines or a digital version on Pinterest. If you are struggling to know what you want wedding fairs and Pinterest can help you discover what you like.
Wedding Stationery Options
From save the date cards to table plans, there is a long list of wedding stationery that you could have. At Sherwood Universal, we can print the whole range to ensure consistency and work to your required budget and time scales.
To help you decide on the wedding stationery you need for your big day here is a list to select from;
• Engagement party invites
• Save the date cards
• Wedding invitations
• RSVP cards with envelopes
• Guest information
• Place settings

This list covers the main parts of wedding stationery and is not complete. If you would like any bespoke wedding stationery, like direction signs or personalised decorations, our team are here to help.
The Creative and Print Process
If you already have a clear idea of what you would like, we can work with you to make sure the designs are in an artwork format and are suitable for printing. For couples that need a little help with the creative side of things, our team of graphic designers can develop some options for you to select from.
To help you manage the budget, it’s a good idea to have all the wedding stationery designs ready at the start of the process. This would the time when you are sending out the save the date cards or the wedding invitations. You may want to print the place settings, table plan and order of service about one month before the wedding to be able to make last-minute amends.

Whether you need complex wedding stationery or opt for something more simple, our wealth of experience can make sure the whole design and print process runs smoothly ensuring everything is ready for the big day.
