Guidance and examples for the wording on your invitations and cards.



Exclusive resources to make planning your wedding a breeze!



Yes, we did! We were Lala Design from 2003 until 2022, when we decided it was time for a brand glow-up and became Paper and Ink Studio (but we're still the same owner and awesome team!)

Yes, we sure can! This is very common, so don't be afraid to get in touch and chat with us. We love nothing more than working with you to create your very own unique design. We also have a very skilled printer who does all types of foiling and letterpress for us, so you’re not limited when it comes to your dream wedding stationery. Contact us via email, phone, the form at Custom Design Quote, or book in a personal stationery consultation. We can’t wait to create for you!

Yes, we service all of Australia and International. We can post your order wherever you are in the world! For consultations we can use Skype, Facetime, email, carrier pigeons - whatever we need to make this easy for you. 

Yes, we can! We know that this part can be hard, so we're here to help with guidance and wording examples to use for your invitations, RSVP cards, and more. Find invite wording help here.

We suggest getting in touch for invites at least 4-5 months before your big day. We take anywhere from 3-6 weeks for stationery orders, depending on what you order and the time of the year you order. If you're not sure, send us an enquiry and we can let you know when to order. 

Absolutely, we do!

Our online design collections have all of the matching stationery items you could need for your wedding or event.

If you ordered invitations elsewhere, that's okay too! We can help make it all flow and come together. Allow 3 weeks ordering time, plus postage. 

We offer an amazing sample pack, chock-a-block full of assorted samples and very useful extras.
Unfortunately we don’t offer one-off samples of specific designs, as all our work is made to order with minimum quantities. Order your sample pack here!

Absolutely! We have a magic, very skilled printer who does all types of foiling and letterpress for us - they're the bees knees and talented artisans who are tried and tested in the world of foiling and letterpress. Head to the Print Finishes section for more information on the different ways we can make your wedding stationery special.

Yes, we can! We only ask that you make sure the text you provide is free from spelling and grammatical errors. 

You also need to keep in mind that some fonts do not have alternative languages available, but we'll advise you on your options. Email us or fill out our custom quote form to start organising your multilingual wedding stationery today!

Yes, we offer custom website services that guests can RSVP through as an alternative to sending physical RSVP cards. Your website is built to match your custom invitation set and includes a customisable online form for guests to enter their response, dietary preferences, and other specifications you may want to include. Please email us or fill out our custom quote form!

Unfortunately not! We are a bit of a pedantic bunch and like to make sure that our files are set flawlessly, so that we know your final printed stationery will be perfect in every way.

However, we can use your design as inspiration and set the entire thing up from scratch ourselves. There are extra fees involved in this as it classifies as a custom order, so please email us or fill out our custom quote form to get a price. This way you get the invite design you love, and we can make sure it's perfect from initial layout to the final printed item.

We can create beautiful invitations and stationery for any event! Any of our beautiful online collection designs can be easily adapted to milestone events, corporate parties, birthdays, hen's or buck's nights, baby showers, christenings or baptisms and more - and if you have something custom in mind, we would love to create something unique for you. Just fill out our custom design form or email us to get the ball rolling!

Whenever we say 'minimum order' or 'minimum quantity' - either on our online collection products or in a quote - we're talking about the very smallest amount of invitations or stationery items that our printers will print in one go/for an order. For certain specialty print finishes like foiling or acrylics, our printers won't do anything smaller than the minimum order or minimum quantity that we've listed or let you know about - this is because it makes the price super high, and in some cases is impossible to create less than that minimum amount.

Have a question?

We're here to help! Ask us any question at all - you can even ask our favourite places to eat, cocktails to drink, and any weird shenanigans we get up to.
