{ Wedding Paper Parlour } Phancy Phylecia

Posted by Abbey on Dec 7, 2011

Good morning! as you read this I am whizzing down to London, think of me, its an early one there and late one back.

Onto business..

Well my love affair with this independent designer started 2 months ago when my lovely boy bought me this . see it sitting prettily on my desk here.

All you need is love.

So true. But a good blow dry, manicure and shopping trip or two, cocktails, puppy cuddles {think you get the idea} certainly help too.

But enough of my habits..and back to Phylecia. So I got this lovely card and fell in LOVE. as you will know by now I am hopelessly addicted to letterpress printing, and love finding new companies {or not so new but new to me}. So I got straight on the case for finding out more about this talented lady.

"We are a small letterpress boutique based in Otley, West Yorkshire.

 I Come from a career in Public Relations and Social Media, so a move to the 'creative side', especially with old-fashioned printing, seemed a step back in time, but that's exactly what drew me in.

Taking a few graphic design courses at university sparked my love for typography and design. That, combined with a long-time love of all things paperie, has slowly guided me down my path today."

So lets have a look at this move to the creative side...{these images are hot of the press as it were! and have not yet been featured on any other blog, exciting!}..

Pretty gorgeous? I adore the Cameo.

What is so brilliant about this design house is although a bespoke {small} studio, they design and print in house {I die of jealousy} this is what Phylecia has to say..

"I love everything about letterpress: from the luxurious cotton papers to the sound of the gears on my old Victorian press.{swoon}.

There are people who speak of the good ole days when things were made "properly" and to a high-quality standard. Printing is no different.

In our studio we combine old-fashioned printing with contemporary design and the results are exquisite."

Indeed, what's not to love?

Whether you are looking for something traditional, classy, vintage, modern or quirky, invitations designed and produced in house by a small team then this is your gal.

Also on offer from this talented design studio is bespoke design and printing services for all other occasions. Cards, stationery and other paper goods {available through their shop}

You can also follow Phylecia's adventures on her blog.

And I am just hoping for more {via the boy} from Phylecia.
