Ordering bespoke items
Do you offer bespoke or custom items?
Yes, I can produce custom designs which are based around my existing illustrations or I can create completely bespoke designs for your printed items. Think unique Christmas cards, personalised stationery sets, the perfect stationery for your wedding or some impeccable invitations for the party of all parties you're planning.
I can also create custom one-off illustrations for your wall.
Please contact me with any requests for bespoke or custom items.
Unfortunately I am not able to take custom orders for fabric items at this time.
How much will a bespoke order cost?
This will depend on the complexity of the design, paper size and the number of items you want. I will provide a quote once I have all of the details.
Is there a minimum order size for bespoke orders of printed items?
For many paper items, there is no minimum order size, but the price per item will be higher for small orders. Gift wrap, red packets and notebooks all have a minimum order size of 300 items.
