Today it is my pleasure to introduce the Wedding Stationery of Invitations by Helen.
Helen designs and creates beautiful wedding invitations and other items, all hand cut with a specialism in diamond fold invites.
I hand over to Helen Gillespie to tell you about her blossoming Business…
Who are you, and what do you do?
“Hello, I am Helen from Invitations By Helen – I make wedding stationery from invitations to name place holders and everything in between!”
When and why did you start your Company?
“My small business was set up after I got engaged myself in February, and found myself seeing the same invitation designs over and over again.”
“The only ones I like were totally out of my price range, so I set about creating designs of my own!”
“I’ve been making cards and invitations for friends and family for as long as I can remember, but finally took the plunge and set up my Facebook business page.”
What inspires you?
“The idea that a wedding invitation sets the tone for the wedding – its the first thing that your guests will see, and hopefully it will be kept as a momento of the day itself.”
Do trends influence your work?
“They can do – if I don’t have an existing design to suit a brides request I’m happy to design something new just for them. That’s how our Anna, Elsa and Valentina designs came into being.”
What is your greatest achievement?
“Getting my small business started and taking orders (from all over the world!) within just a few months.”
What do you see as the future of your Company?
“I’d love for this to become a full time job, making beautiful wedding stationery affordable to everyone. With more and more designs being added to our portfolio, we’re getting really busy which is great.”
“My designs all feature ‘cut out designs’, and can be tailored to suit any colour scheme or budget.”
“Although I’m based in Cheshire I can post anywhere – I’ve even had an order go to Puerto Rico!”
“Below are some the designs I’ve created, the prices range from £1.25 to £3.70 (that’s my most expensive design with ALL the extras). Most are £2.50-£2.70, and all come with an envelope.”
Thank you so much to Helen for sharing her lovely work with us.
