At Akimbo we believe weddings should be a reflection of the couple and their unique style, interests and personalities. The stationery is no exception.
That’s why I offer a Couture design service.
Is Couture stationery for me?
Do you and your fiance have a unique love story to tell?
Do you and your fiance have particular interests you’re dying to include?
Do you want to knock your guests’ socks off with something one-of-a-kind?
Are you having a destination wedding or a unusual venue?
Do you need bilingual stationery?
Are you having a mixed-faith or -culture wedding?
Are you having an offbeat or themed wedding?
Do you have really specific ideas on what you want?
Do you have more than four months til the big day?
Do you dig Akimbo’s style but none of the off-the-rack invitations are quite right?
Do you not want to settle for something you don’t love?
Do you want a custom illustrated design?
Do you want the full kit and caboodle of matching paper goodies?
If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, Couture stationery is definitely something you should consider!
The first stage is getting to know all about you and your wedding plans, as well as the practical things like your budget, timeline and number of guests. I’ll then come up with a concept that will work for you and provide you with a quote. From there I will get out my drawing pad and doodle away. Once the idea has taken shape I’ll work it up on the computer and provide you with a proof, to which you are entitled to two rounds of corrections. Once it’s all approved, I send it to one of my trusted network of specialty printers.
I recommend starting this process no later than four months before your wedding. You can read more details about the process here.

Prices are in Australian Dollars and exclude GST and shipping (these will be added at checkout based on your location). All prices are subject to discussion as more complex designs may incur additional design fees. These are the design fees and are in addition to the printing costs, which will be dependent on the quantity, printing method, paper choice, number of colours, embellishments and other variables.
Yes! I do cater for other celebrations apart from weddings. I don’t believe in charging more more just for the ‘w’ word, so the prices are the same as above.
