Cool, creative and affordable, Paper Arrow Press are ones to watch in the wedding stationery market. Read on to find out more …
Paper Arrow Press offers super cool stationery for weddings and those other important events in life.
Aimed at design-conscious couples who are looking for something more than the usual hearts and flowers for their save the dates, birth announcements and party invitations, Paper Arrow Press works closely with each client to produce personal, stylish designs at an affordable price.
Paper Arrow Press was set up in 2012 by designer Rachel Russell, a Yorkshire girl living in East Dulwich, London. It came into being after Rachel designed her own wedding invitations. Paper Arrow Press offers two services: choose between a fully bespoke service, working with Rachel to design and create stationery to your specifications or, if you’re a couple on a tight budget, choose a pre-designed wedding collection which can be customised with your details.
Two customisable design collections are currently available: Big Top and Bookish. The former inspired by old time circus posters and designed to add a carnival atmosphere to your day and the latter designed to help you get your geek on, inspired by librarian chic!
More pre-designed stationery collections are planned for later in the year. Recent bespoke projects have been fully inspired by the couples themselves, taking their style and interests and translating them into cool, modern print pieces. These include a laid back beach wedding, a multilingual wedding in the Swiss lakes and a vintage Canadian wedding.
At launch, designer Rachel Russell said:
“My other half and I had a clear idea of how we wanted our wedding to look but had a small budget. We were lucky that we could create print pieces just as we wanted them. Not everyone has the time, ability or inclination (!) to do this. With Paper Arrow Press I want to offer the next best option: creative, affordable design combined with a fun and stress-free process. As a freelance graphic designer and illustrator I want to bring the same design aesthetic and attention to detail to wedding and event stationery as to any other design project. Planning any big event is stressful but Paper Arrow Press can help you get one big tick on your list with a minimum level of fuss and maximum level of style.”
Leanne, Bride said:
“I loved working with Rachel on our wedding invite as she isn’t restricted by what is traditional and ‘the norm’ for wedding invitations. She is incredibly creative and will strive to come up with something that is very personal to you and your partner, that makes it very special. We have had so many compliments since we sent them out.”
