Today I am thrilled to spotlight on the utterly fabulous Hip Hip Hooray and their ground breaking approach to Wedding and Celebration stationery.
This brand new British brand know the thought that goes into planning a special occasion, and they know you’ll want paper goods which complement & bring together all the little details.
So with Hip Hip hooray they have created a one-stop-shop where you can choose entire stationery suites to match.
Their Wedding & Celebration stationery collections each have 14 coordinating items, so you can achieve complete cohesion without having to shop around.
I spoke to the lovely Jenny Adjene about the business she runs with husband Emiko….
Who are you, and what do you do?
“We’re a small, family run company based in Devon, UK.”
“We have big ambitions and a brand new website providing a ground-breaking approach to wedding & celebration stationery.”
“We offer beautiful designs that Brides & Grooms can customise themselves online, so they get to see exact live previews of how their order will look.”
“We’re also different to other companies in that all our products can be printed from home or taken to a local print company.”
“Alternatively, our customers can have their stationery printed by us and shipped for free within a few short days.”
“We’re determined to keep our prices super competitive, as we don’t believe that providing great style in stationery should take an age, or cost the earth!”
When and why did you start your Company?
“I am very experienced in the world of wedding stationery, having previously founded another boutique stationery design studio In the Treehouse.”
“Through this experience I came to see first hand how as a Bride-to-be, on average you’d need to spend a small fortune and wait at least 3 – 6 weeks to have an order completed.”
“We set about to change this by offering the same great design standards, but all the while building a great brand, and a clever website that allows clients to edit the stationery themselves.”
“Not only does this make the order process much quicker for Brides, but means we can keep our costs down too and in return, offer great prices.”
“We also offer lots of great little extras, such as free printable (fully customised) place cards and escort cards in every single collection.”
What inspires you?
“I could spend hours browsing blogs and magazines of all kinds, and am very inspired by striking design, be it retro, floral, typography, whimsical – I’m drawn to quite an eclectic array of styles and hope this shows throughout our portfolio.”
Do trends influence your work?
“Creatively, we love keeping up with the ever emerging trends in fashion, film and culture.”
“Ultimately these filter through to the wedding & party industry, and we love playing a role in translating such themes into beautiful and accessible design.”
“It’s a challenge as nothing stays still for very long, so we have to keep our eyes wide open and plan our collections to make sure we are offering what people want.”
“We’re also really excited about our Designers Programme, whereby we’ll be selling carefully curated stationery collections from leading UK and worldwide designers and illustrators.”
“This will allow us to offer such a great range of styles and themes all under one roof, while giving designers a great opportunity to earn from their work without the responsibilities and admin headaches that can come with running your own stationery company.”
What is your greatest achievement?
“It’s hard to pick a single greatest achievement.”
“In terms of business – as we are constantly striving for more, and find that over time, our ambitions and expectations grow.”
“We’re a very new company and I like to think the future is bright, but for now – I think just getting to this point, having launched our website gives us a great starting point from which to grow.”
“We spent over a year intensively planning, finding funding, designing and testing our brand, concept and website – so it’s great to finally say, we’re here!”
What do you see as the future of your Company?
“We aim to be the leading brand in wedding, celebration and Event stationery both in the UK and in many countries abroad.”
“At the heart of this is providing great products, great customer service and the commitment to keep ourselves relevant, on trend and offering the design standard that today’s very discerning brides and grooms seek.”
Thank you to Jenny and Emiko for sharing their incredible Wedding and celebration stationery range with us.
Its so lovely when your receive something gorgeous in the post, and what amazing stationery to be able to send your friends and family as an insight to your Event.
From personal experience I can testify the beauty of these wee paper pretties.
The colours, textures, design and look are just divine and would be a beautiful accompaniment to any celebration.
