Wolf & Ink is a London based Letterpress studio specializing in wedding stationery. Founded in 2013 the studio pairs contemporary design with the age-old Letterpress print technique that creates a beautiful textured finish. For those new to the letterpress method of printing, its main advantage over modern digital (flat) printing is the range of indentations that can be created. A plate is made up with the design and text, which is then pressed down onto the cardstock, creating that distinctive style of indentation.
Here at Wolf & Ink we love to combine this traditional hand-craft process with contemporary graphics and colours and explore unique new ways to print letterpress. Key to the ethos behind Wolf & Ink was to create a sustainable business that was part of the revival of traditional crafts and trades. All the materials and suppliers are recycled and sourced within the UK. Each item is handmade on antique equipment, a vintage guillotine for cutting, and the printing press itself is over 100 years old.
Customers can choose from our “Ready to Go” collection where we have a number of different designs to choose from or our “Designed for you” service which is a totally bespoke option where the invitations are designed for you and your wedding only. Julia works closely with the couple and offers a personal, friendly service and commitment to creating designs that our clients are 100% happy with. There is no limitation to the number of designs created as we know how important it is to get it right!
“We were pretty much sold on Wolf and Ink having seen their ‘look and feel’ on their website which we really liked. The experience from first contact to final delivery was super professional ,efficient and very friendly. The hardest part was trying to decide which of the fantastic designs to choose from. Julia really ‘got us’ from the start which from email communication alone is quite remarkable and demonstrated great talent. We finally chose one design which we really didn’t want or need to ‘tweak’ that much it was so good. The quality was amazing. We were chuffed to bits with the ‘save the date’ , wedding invitations and ‘the plan’ for our wedding day. Our guests loved them too, some asked for extras to have as keepsakes. Could not recommend more.”
“We selected Wolf & Ink for our wedding invitations without any prior connection, based on the beautiful designs they showed on their website. Julia was incredibly helpful and responsive during the design process (including bespoke colour mixing), and delivery was faster than they originally estimated. The invitations, RSVP cards and envelopes were just as lovely as we had hoped, and elicited many compliments and kind words. The tactility of letterpress is always such a joy, and these were wonderful prints on wonderful card. We would wholeheartedly recommend Wolf & Ink to anyone looking for a very special touch for their very special day.”
“Julia of Wolf & Ink made both my wedding invitations as well as our thank-you cards. The quality of her work is unlike anything you can find nowadays. Wolf & Ink provides classic, high quality cards with beautifully indented letters. We have received so many complements on the quality and design. Highly recommend for if you are looking for a hand-crafted, artisan, quality product.”
