Please can you tell us a little bit about your business?

My name is Joanna Harwood and I run Sentio Wedding Stationery. We are a boutique design and print wedding stationery company based in Oxfordshire, but work with brides from all over the United Kingdom.  Our company is all based on service; we meet each bride personally to make sure we fully understand their requirements.

We have a wealth of knowledge with paper and print and have worked with the top paper suppliers from around the world.  We pride ourselves on a personal service to our clientele.  Our passion is beautiful design, in print, on paper.  We love to help our brides realise their dreams in print.

Sentio Wedding Stationery offers a personal and confidential service to our clients.  We let each bride choose from a wide range of papers and print techniques, advising on what will work on the different papers.  We look at colours, and have a large range of coloured papers to suit all weddings.  Our papers are made from silk, wool, jeans, beer and of course wood pulp!  We provide a full design service and can use a coat of arms, family crests and wedding logos to create the special look for the wedding stationery.

With regard to printing we offer the following techniques, but we are not limited to this range:

Our print techniques include:

Metallic and coloured foil blocking;
Digitally enhanced UV printing;
Laser printing;
Lenticular print;
Digital print;
Litho print.

Once the design has been created, we print a full one off set of proofs for our brides so they can see the print on the paper.  It is only after this process, and the brides are completely happy with these proofs, we then we proceed to print and deliver the wedding stationery pack to the destination of choice.

How do your products appeal to the modern bride? 

Our products and service appeal to modern brides as we offer state of the art print techniques coupled with new and creative papers sourced from the top paper mills from around the world.  We use a great deal of papers from the United Kingdom but have papers from Germany, Italy and United States of America to name a few.

We design the stationery to the exact requirements of the bride and we are tireless with that process creating the design and making amendments as requested. We never use the same design twice – all our wedding stationery is bespoke.

What advice would you give a bride when selecting wedding stationary? 

Our advice is to think about the colours carefully.  Have an idea of what you like; collect ideas from other weddings that you have attended.  Print is very tactile so make sure your wedding stationery stands out.  It is your big day; the wedding stationery sets the tone of what is to be an exciting and momentous day in your life.
