What's New for 2013?

I'm currently 38 weeks and 5 days pregnant, so I thought I should get the new for 2013 post done now, rather than wait for the arrival of baby.

Website & Product Photography:
Firstly, the website has been updated and we have a beautiful selection of new product photographs taken by Matt McGurk Photography, who is well worth a look if you're after some product or portrait photography, especially as he's trying to build his portfolio meaning photography through him is a really good deal at present.

New for 2013 - The Signature Range:
We've also launched our Signature Range. This range is laser cut into wood with the table plan then inlaid with mahogany. It's a real keepsake range and well worth a look if you want something really special. We can provide a bespoke design for you too.

2013 Range & Prices:
We've also released our 2013 Brochure & Price List which you can download from our website. The brochure documents our current 2013 range, as well as 'Original Print' items which are from our 2011-2012 range but are still available on request. We hope you find the brochure comprehensive and helpful.

Our prices are based on the cost of the quality materials we use and the time we dedicate to each invitation. The time we spend on invitations varies between fifteen minutes and an hour or more for more complicated designs. Graphic Embers is not a hobby business run around another job, we are a full time business operating 5-7 days a week depending on workload. This means we can offer a truly dedicated service, being able to answer queries at most times (unless we're in consultations). Our prices reflect this dedicated service and the quality of our products.

In 2013 we are also making an effort to support our local economy, we already use a local card stockist and have just started using a local printing lab as well. Our aim is to use local suppliers for the majority of our products and only use our national suppliers when a couple wants something specific that we cannot source locally. All of our suppliers are already based in the United Kingdom or Ireland.

We also aim to continue our award-winning customer service, offering a truly bespoke design service alongside full customisation of standard designs and a dedicated service. We want to do our best for all our couples and look forward to another year of working closely with more unique brides and grooms.

Christmas Working Hours:
We are not taking any more orders, consultations or sample requests this year due to the imminent arrival of our second child. However, I will be around working on some more new 2013 products and existing orders. You can still contact me via email at although my response times may be a little slower than normal. We appreciate your understanding during this time and hope to be back up and full speed in January!
