Introducing the Hummingbird Card Company
Today, we introduce the lovely ladies at Hummingbird Cards. Offering an excellent service and a quality, unique product, your wedding stationery will be the talking point of your big day with this fabulously creative company.
Here’s the ladies to tell us more:
Who are you and what do you do?
Hummingbird Cards is a quintessentially British stationery studio. We’re a small, friendly, creative company and we love all things papery! We make what we love, and what we believe is a truly desirable range of covetable wedding stationery, featuring whimsical, vintage and even quirky designs. Our main collections are laser cut (which allows us to create the ‘paper cut’ feel in larger quantities!) but we also create printed designs, to coordinate with the collections!
We make everything from your save the date cards, invitations (of course!) and RSVPs, seeing you through to your orders of service and then onto your function with menus, table plans, place cards, decorations and bunting, table plans, names and numbers, message trees and then finally your thank you cards.
Our latest additions to the collection are our ‘Will you be my bridesmaid?’ cards which are a wonderful way to surprise and ask your chosen girls to be with you on your big day. We also make cards for flower girls, maids of honour and matrons of honour. They’re so popular that we’re adding new designs soon.
Also hot off the printing press are our Hen Party invites with cute and quirky hens; we call them the ‘Pink Ladies’. They’re great fun and you can personalise them with all the details for the fun ahead!
What do you feel makes your service stand out from the crowd?
Our laser cutting, which we love as it is truly stunning and ever so eye catching. Lasers create the most amazing and beautiful effect, where the artwork is literally burnt away from the card, leaving the most delicate lace-like design. It’s becoming more and more popular but we’re always trying to stay ahead with trends that work for us.
Our style is hand drawn with irresistible nature-inspired pieces to whimsical and quirky designs. All our stationery is hand crafted and made in our Leicestershire studio, and we love this fact. We’re so proud to be making entirely in the UK!
At Hummingbird we also offer a bespoke design service, so if a bride & groom want to create something unique for their big day, we can help! We’ve been asked to do some amazing projects and we love the challenge of creating something special.
What are your predictions of trends in your industry for 2014 / 2015?
Lace is becoming a big trend and we love the old fashioned handmade doily’s, which have inspired our newest design the ‘Doily Gatefold’. A lace-look invitation, which is so new it’s not on the website yet but it will be very soon…
We’re loving everything Boho or Bohemian and Festival Chic too! For us this means flowers and lace, lots of natural card and colours. Organic, recycled eco craft card and string instead of a ribbon is becoming more and more popular.
Finally, what do you love the most about being involved in the wonderful world of weddings?
It’s such an exciting time for every couple and we love helping and guiding them through the minefield of customs, traditions and complexities of planning their big day.
