Stationery Week – Golden Apple Designs

Name: Leah

Stationery style/what you can offer? My stationery is unique, quirky, interesting, funky and fun with a sprinkling of vintage! The majority of the designs include my hand drawn illustrations so are totally unique – you can even have a bespoke design created uniquely for you! I offer everything from the save the dates and the invitations to the on the day items such as table plans, banners and favours.

Where does your inspiration come from? My general doodlings – I made my first ever invitation after sitting with a pad and a fine liner and seeing what came out! I’m also a hopeless romantic, so am inspired by love,  fairytales and magic! I also love chatting to my customers and being inspired by their ideas, excitement and enthusiasm.

Any tips on wording etiquette?
They’re your invitations so they can say whatever you like!

Any tips to those thinking of DIY stationery If you’re creative and want to express yourself then go for it! Your invitations should represent who you are as a couple and what better way of doing this than making them yourself? If not.. then give me a call 😉

How far in advance should you order? Depends on what you’ve ordered and how many! Luggage tags with four page booklets can take ages to make, whereas flat Save the Dates are quick. Each order is individual and I do my best to give the closest time frame to each couple and keep you updated with pictures and progress along the way.

Trends for 2011? Cadbury purple is so on trend at the moment – I’ve had so many requests for designs in this colour recently! I think that the best trend to follow though is YOU – think about what you’re both into and be inspired by this!
