Stationery Design Bespoke

The Social Ocean team loves working with individuals and organisations to create bespoke events. The first part of organising a special event is setting the tone with your stationery design to tie in to styling and/or theming. It’s the stationery that lets the world know all the important details and lets your guests in on the secrets to come!

The process of designing bespoke stationery is very creative, and often uncovers the need for unexpected elements to design. It also helps to identify further event logistics, making it integral to the success of your event.

Our bespoke design service means we’ll work with you to design unique elements to set the tone. From invitations to thank you cards and everything else you’ll need for intimate gatherings to corporate events.

We work with you to create your dream stationery!  There’s lots to think about when it comes to stationery and we’re here to help you through the creative process.

In addition to traditional print items, we create lots of digital stationery designs. These are used to create digital tickets, ticketing platform visuals, email campaigns and much more. If there’s a unique place for your bespoke design to be published, we’ll customise the files to fit for cohesiveness.

Working with Social Ocean on your stationery design project starts with a client meeting to discuss your needs in more detail.

That meeting can occur in person or via video link.

We determine a design brief from this meeting to include branding or colours, style or theming, timelines and publication requirements.

After discussing your stationery needs, our team presents options for the first phase of the design.

From here the client/business and our staff take direction to refine everything until we’ve got it right.

Depending on the type of event you need bespoke stationery for, there will be lots of additional elements you may need. Social Ocean can assist you with anything!

  • Invitation Sets: invitation, RSVP cards, Save the Date notices
  • Cards: Thank You cards, Seasonal cards e.g. Christmas Cards
  • Table ware: menus, place cards, table number cards
  • Envelopes
  • Magnets

Imagine your guests receiving a beautiful envelope in the mail that indicates your colour theme?

Did you know you can take your customers on a journey of understanding who and what your business does by selecting on recycled products?

Think how wonderful it is to slip out an invite that’s like a work of art, it will never be taken off the fridge!

This and much more can all be achieved with professional printing for your bespoke designs.

Social Ocean understands the need for modest printing budgets and therefore work with you to help select the best printer, with the right stocks, perfect embellishments, who can work wonders for your event.

The cost of printing should never stop you from having the design of your dreams. This is why at Social Ocean we charge for design separately and help source printing with you.

Costs are relevant to the type of stock selected, size of items, embellishments chosen, number of items printed and many more specification options. Social Ocean works closely with our print suppliers to assist with finding the best solutions for your budgets and organisation of quotes.

 

 

 

The world of printing has progressed so much in the last decade. Not only are there thousands of card “stocks” to choose from (this is what we call what the paper product you print on), you can add special inks to create embellishments to make your bespoke stationery design shine.
