Social Stationery

A date to celebrate

16th September 2015

Red inlay paper has been scattered across our work benches after the amazing success of the Ruby Wedding Anniversary cards. Its been truly amazing how quickly they just took off. We couldn’t cut them quick enough at one point and we were down to just the one last lonely card, sat on the shelf wondering where the stock we’d made had gone to so quickly! So with wedding anniversaries on our minds we rushed to create Silver, Golden and Pearl Anniversary cards too. Silver and Golden Anniversary cards are now a little storm too and we just have Pearl left to…

Venetian Mask Invitation

4th July 2013

When challenged with creating a Venetian style masquerade mask invitation for a joint 21st & 50th summer birthday party by Peri Peri Events we jumped at the chance to come up with a design! Masquerade masks lend themselves perfectly to laser cutting so with pencil in hand & ideas from the customer we sketched some designs & started to create the perfect invitation. The invitation had the front part of the mask opening up to reveal the invite inside. Working closely with Natasha from Peri Peri we presented the final design to the customer. Then came the fun part & we…

I just couldn’t help it, I just had to share these wonderful, unique invites with you. We get asked to do so many different ideas for invitations so when we were approached to create a Christening Invite with a bespoke quote we just adored the idea as soon as we saw it! ‘So let it out and let it in, Hey Jude, begin’ (The Beatles, 1968) For of course, Baby Jude! How lucky is he and he’s got a pretty amazing name too! Hot off the press, the invites arrived in the studio today & we immediately knew we just had to…

Baby Shower Invitations

1st November 2011

Although wedding stationery is what we’re really passionate about here at Hummingbird we also love to make other social stationery. Recently we made some beautiful baby shower invitations which I thought would be perfect to share here on the blog. They featured a vintage pram design,  printed on textured ivory card in a cornflower blue font. As a perfect finishing touch all of the guests names were written in elegant calligraphy. We’re always happy to create stationery for other social occasions or events. Just give us a call in the studio on 01530 411 288 or drop us an email to info@hummingbirdcards.co.uk.
