Hooray it's another Wee Bit of Wonderful blog post today. We caught up with the lovely Charlotte and Jonny from The Old Market Printing Co. They produce the most exquisite wedding stationery which makes me just want to get married all over again! I first met them when they lived in Leeds. Jonny screen printed all our baby grows for us and Charlotte was always there to touch up our artwork :-) It's lovely to be back in touch with them and seeing their new business grow.
Hello, we are the Old Market printing Co a small print and design studio in Bristol run by husband and wife team Charlotte and Jonny. We specialise in screen-printed Wedding Stationery (also know as silk-screen printing) all of our stationery is lovingly designed and printed by hand. This traditional print technique allows us to create unique products of the highest quality, not to mention the specialist inks we can use such as metallics and neons!
The Old Market Printing Co came about after we designed and printed our own wedding invites, we got great feedback from our guests and friends started to ask us to create their wedding stationery for them. Charlotte is a hand-lettering artist by trade and Jonny has been a successful screen-printer for many years now, so it made perfect sense to team up together and make it official!
(Charlotte here!) I am a total Instagram and Pinterest addict! I love how you have so much access to such a wide variety of inspiration. Our design process always begins with a mood board, whether it is for an in-house collection or a bespoke design. I love working closely with our couples and finding out all about what they have planned for the big day. Once we have a mood board in place to set the scene I then get sketching. I’ll also work closely with Jonny to bounce ideas around about how we can use the screen-print technique to create something really special and individual.
So there we have it. The old Market Printing Co. Absolutely beautiful wedding stationery and we can vouch for total attention to detail.
