Thank you for your support and help throughout the months leading up to the wedding, you truly are a genuine person. Your professionalism is outstanding and completely flawless and for that you should be commended. 

Katarina & Zeljko

 I would like to thank you for your excellent work in creating and making the beautiful invitations, bomboniere tags and thank you cards for my eldest daughter's wedding earlier this month. Your incredibly prompt, professional and friendly manner has made that part of our wedding arrangements so much easier to organise. I have now used your services on the occasion of both my daughters' weddings and without hesitation I would highly recommend The Invitation Studio. 

Kind regards, Susan

 A huge thank-you to Virginia for producing our amazing wedding stationery. We got lots of comments on how impressed people were with everything - from the invitations ("like a work of art" was one comment), through to the menus and place cards. The diamantes went down especially well with the ladies...! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend your services to anyone else. 

Kathy and Chris

 I wanted to write you this note to say thank you for everything you have done. You have been by far the best support in the preparation for our special day. Jessica and I have never come across anyone who has gone out of their way as much as you and more times than not, you were ahead of us in terms of what needed to be done next. You have produced the best quality and best looking invitations we could have hoped for. And our place cards definitely made the day - everyone commented on how good they looked! 

Daniel & Jessica

 The wedding stationery was superb! … We truly feel you were the best comparing you to the rest of the vendors we used. You were great to work with, had beautiful work and there were never any hidden fees (which is appreciated). 

Kimberley and Adam

 The invitations were so beautiful and I got SO many compliments from people - so thank you so much for all the effort you put in!" :) 

Let's break it down!
4 months before you get married come and see us! Here's why:

  • Let's say your wedding is mid-Sept
  • RSVP Date is Mid-August  (4 weeks before the wedding)
  • Invitations need to go out Early July (4-6 weeks before that)
  • You need to come and see us by mid-May to early-June (but no later than that!)

Some things to consider!

  • Depending on the time of year (December/January), there's lots of Christmas parties, and people go on holidays, so you want to give them enough notice - the sooner the better (before they book to go away) 
  • Same with DESTINATION WEDDINGS - give your guest's ample time! They might want to save for your wedding and include a holiday, so booking flights and accommodation - give them plenty of time (upto a year isn't a bad idea!)
Depending on the invitations you've chosen.
Foil printing: 3 weeks (Rush jobs can be done in 2 weeks, but may incur a surcharge)
Laser cut stationey: 4 weeks minimum.
From October and up to the end of January, delays can be expected. To avoid disappointment (or surcharges), please don't leave your order to the last minute.
Not at all!  All designs are interchangeable! Every invitation is available in any colour eg:  if you've seen an invite on our website in a square design, but want it in a business size - we'll do it that way for you.
The same goes with the colour of an invite or ribbon - if you see it in black, for example, but want it in ivory, - you can have it in ivory!
Not at all!  We design and create everything from invitations right through to your thank you cards and EVERYTHING in between! In a nutshell, we can design and create your:
  • RSVP's (incl matching envelope with yournominated return address)
  • Wishing Well / Accommodation Information / Map
  • Order of Service / Church Books
  • Seating Chart
  • Place cards
  • Menus
  • Seating Chart
  • Welcome signs
  • Bomboniere tags
  • Thank you cards (incl matching envelope)
  • Tri-fold - menu/table number/guest names/thank you message
...whatever other requirements you have, we are happy to accommodate your needs and requirements.

Consider it done!  If you see a design with a flower/bow/ribbon etc, and you don't want it there, it doesn't have to be there!  On the other hand if you see a design that doesn't have an embellishment, and you'd like it on your invitations, we'd be more than happy to incorporate it into your design.
We're located in Blakehurst (a suburb between Hurstville and Tom Ugly's Bridge that takes you to Sylvania). As we work from a home-based studio, we're don't publish our address, however, upon confirmation of your appointment on the day, we'll TXT you and give you our address on the day.
Don't let distance be a problem!  We have successfully worked with couples that we've never met in Qld, WA, NT, and VIC.
We can send you a whole lot of photos and discuss your options, if necessary, we can mail you sample swatches of papers and ribbon colours.
Thankfully invitations are not fragile, so they travel easily in the mail without getting damaged.

Absolutely!  We've made invitations in Greek, Croatian, Italian, Hebrew, Vietnamese, we recently did some invitaitons in Mandarin! You just need to provide the wording to us in a .doc format and we'll do the rest.
A rough estimate is HALF of the amount of guests you plan to invite.
If you plan to invite 150 guests, you'll need about 75-80 invitations. (This allows for families and couples). Don't forget to calculate between 5-10 extra invites to accommodate any last minute guest.
With letterpress invitations, and custom-laser invitations, we can't get an extra 5 if you're short! Double/triple check your guestlist.
It depends on what you order - letterpress/foiled and laser invitations we recommend a minimum of 50 (we have done less - 30 - but from an economical point, we recommend 50)
But come and have a chat with us and let's see what we can do for you! We recently completed an order for someone who only needed 8 invitations!
We don't want to railroad you into purchasing items you don't need.  You only pay for what you need.  However you can expect a discount when you order all your stationery from us.  Our "Pocket Style" invitation includes the invitation, and 2-3 inserts of your choice (this can be the RSVP, Accommodation Info, Kitchen Tea, Tea Ceremony or something of your choice that your guests should be informed of).
Of course you can!  A sample invitation is $25 and will have generic wording.  
When you go ahead with your order, we will deduct this $25 from your order.
Because we work from a home-based studio, you'll appreciate why we work by appointment only - we're happy to make your appointment for after work (Monday-Thursday's usually around 7:30pm) and on Saturday's (2pm), provided we don't have family commitments ourselves. You can call (0421 01 44 46) us or email us to book an appointment with the details on our Contact page.

Virginia emerged from an artistic family, with her father dabbling in oil painting, and her professional graphic designer brother, clearly she was surrounded by artistic inspirations.

Her first career in the corporate world provided direction and insights into the serious side of business and the provision of fine quality products and service. Raising a family of three beautiful children, alongside Primo, her husband of over 30 years, Virginia dreamed of designing and creating exquisite wedding stationery and greeting cards. Virginia's creative flair was finally realised, 22 years ago, when a dear friend commissioned her to create her wedding invitations. (Cheers to Christine!).

Virginia now lives her dream of providing gorgeous wedding stationery and cards to enhance her clients treasured moments and occasions. Virginia delights in the many varied wonderful friendships she has made with so many valued clients, knowing she has surprised and delighted many of them with her creative talent and artistic flair, not to mention her sense of humour.

Since that time, over 20 years ago, Virginia is the sole designer of her business where she continues to work from her busy home studio and for 13 years held a very popular stand at the renowned Paddington Markets, which boasts tourists from all around the world and regular loyal locals along with visitors looking for unique cards for special family and friends to mark important occasions.

Virginia extends warm gratitude to her many clients new and old for their continued support and patronage.
