We recently chatted to the team at Classic Wedding Invitations, they make amazing laser cut wedding invitations that we LOVE. Laser cutting invitations are really unique, and fairly new to the wedding market though laser cutting has been around for quite some time. Want to know more………
What is laser cutting?
Laser cutting is a technology whereby a powerful laser beam is mirrored onto a bed and creates intricate detailing through cutting projects. We can cut many different materials such as acrylic, plywood, a vast array of cardboards, acrylic, leaves and so forth.
We love your clever design work, especially the push out wooden rings, tell us more about your invitations and the design process!!
We work closely with a design team called Shades of Green Design who we have worked with in the design process. To start the range we did a lot of research and found a gap in the current offerings for something a little more fun and interactive. We spent many afternoons laser cutting new designs, tweaking and also taking customers feedback onboard. We are constantly working on new designs with Shades of Green. We are also looking at collaborating with other business and techniques, such as letter pressing. The opportunities are endless!
What kinds of things should couples think of when it comes to wooden invitations? Are their any tips you can give them?
We have had a lot of requests for our wooden invitations and also custom design options. I would suggest keeping the content simple. Pick an invitation that resembles your personalities, interests and an invite that sets the tone for the day. We often have clients providing us with their own jpeg that they want etched onto a wooden invite.
What do you love most about making wedding invitations?
The endless opportunities in what you can create and definitely happy customers. There’s something nice in knowing you have been apart of creating someones special day. That probably sounds corny but it really is nice.
Invitations are not the only thing you do, tell us a bit more about your awesome business!!
Classic Wedding Invitations is quickly expanding as we are having clients request more services. We are always increasing the offering that we have. At the moment we offer placecards to match, menus, wooden thankyou tags and custom outdoor signage.
What’s your favourite wedding memory?
A lot of my family is based in Czech Republic, so unfortunately I have missed a few family weddings. However my favourite wedding memory was definitely when a good friend of mine was married in Sri Lanka this year . It was so amazing to see the cultural difference and also meet so many lovely locals.
