Placements are conventionally either single with the name on one side, or folding cards with the name on either one or both sides. They are a perfect companion to our table plans, so you can make sure your guests are quickly seated. Whether you are looking to hand-write your own, have your guests’ names printed or perhaps scribed in calligraphy, we can help you make your choice. We can print your friends’ names on placement cards if you wish.

Blind Embossing

Blind Embossing
Blind embossing is the process by which text or an image is stamped using a metal die, pushing the surface of the paper or card up, creating a raised image to the front. Although very similar to engraving/die-stamping the blind-embossing process is done without any ink. This way of embossing is popular on wedding stationery and is often used to emboss the initials to the cover of wedding invitations, menus and service sheets. It can be applied to almost any type of stationery. To discuss your ideas please contact us.


Adding a border to your invitation or stationery will add a coloured frame to enhance the printing.

Edging including gilding


Strictly speaking, gilding is the addition of gold foil to the side edge of a piece of paper or card. The thicker the stock, the more the gilt edge is noticeable when the sheets are separated. A bevelled edge gives maximum effect. As well as the traditional gold and silver, different colour metallic and non-metallic foils can be used.


Colour edging

This can be done in any Pantone® colour. Please contact us for a quotation.

Stock Items

We stock a range of pre-edged cards in gold and silver.


We can print or foil a motif if you want to add something to the top of your paper or invitation that is specific to you.

Panel Sinking

This gives a subtle and stylish border to your invitation or card.



We have specialist calligraphers who can write the names on the invitations, placements and escort cards in beautiful script handwriting. This gives an elegant finish to your stationery.

Envelope Tissue Lining (Hand finished)

Tissue Lined Envelopes

We can line envelopes with coloured tissue or paper to match your invitation or ink colour. This is done by hand. We can line any type of envelope, although the diamond-flap sort lends itself well to lining, as the opening is wide, giving the best visibility of the lining material. We have a wide range of coloured tissue to choose from.

Provide your own lining material

If you wish to provide your own tissue or paper for envelope lining, please contact us.

Italian Bordering

Italian Bordering

Italian bordering came about to add a very fine “coloured” edge to the top surface of a piece of paper or card. As guillotining is not an accurate process, cutting through a printed border precisely to achieve a border of about a millimetre, especially on thick card, is a real challenge, and you run the risk of ruining the order. Adding a border by hand skilfully is a way round this. It is not perfect either, but really enhances the look of a job.

We can now italian-border in any Pantone colour. Please visit us to view our Pantone swatch.
