Just wanted to show you one of our latest bespoke designs!

We were to commissioned, by a lovely couple call Lisa and Tom, to create a completely bespoke wedding stationery range especially for them. The design is a pocketfold invitation, but unlike lots of competitor pocketfolds, these are a little different as we have actually printed onto both sides of the card!

Our stylish couple had searched high and low for a supplier of printed pocketfolds and drawn a blank each time, so when they approached us, they were a little despondent to say the least. We love nothing more than a good challenge and were delighted to help! Caro worked really closely with Greg and the print-team and came up with something that we're all really proud of!

The majority of pocketfold invites, on offer in the UK, are produced from simple coloured card which can then be personalised by sticking flat card invites inside, but other than that, they are fairly standard. We are over the moon with our version - as were Lisa and Tom : ) - as we have created a gorgeous pocket fold format that can be printed in any design our customers choose!

Unusually, the pocket of our design has been formed in the inside front cover of the card - and can contain matching RSVP and info cards - whilst the main invitation wording still appears on the inside right of the invitation. This means that your guests will receive the perfect little pack of wedding stationery - no loose maps or extra bits of paper to lose!

We're just discussing plans to launch the pocketfold invitation as a regular feature of the mooks wedding stationery range... the possibilities are really exciting! Looking forward to posting more pics of different designs to show you! Watch this space....

the painted playroom and other news...

Such a long time since we last posted! Been really busy at Mooks HQ - the wedding season is in full swing and there simply aren't enough hours in the day!

There's lots of exciting things afoot - we're already gearing up for this autumn's National Wedding Show, at Birmingham's NEC, where we'll be exhibiting. It's always lovely to meet our brides - and grooms : ) - and it also gives us a chance to meet possible new clients too!

We spent the Easter holiday exorcising our creative demons and getting up to some (legal) graffiti! Whilst we work mainly on a computer these days, the illustrative skills are still there and given half the the chance, we like nothing more than to put them to good use and get the paints out!

When we were commissioned to paint a little girl's playroom... this, coupled with a very loose brief was all it needed for us to dust down the paintbrushes and get cracking!

Had a tiring, but absolutely delicious time and the results were definitely worth all of the effort! Our little client was absolutely bowled over by her new room. Lying on the day-bed gives you a real sense of being in a secret garden, underneath a magic tree... oh to be 4 again!
