Our invitation collections
At Elle Bee Design one of our main goals is customer choice; below you'll find each of our invitation styles, each of which has multiple design collections and configurations so you can easily find and build your perfect invitations for the best first impression.
Our suites combines multiple printed items in a configuration of your choosing, with an array of elegant "finishing" options such as paper belly bands, vellum jackets and wax seals.
The classical pocketfold provides an array of choices, from our 30+ digitally-printed designs, multiple pocketfold colours and a configurable suite of items built to your requirements.
Similar to our concertina invitations, our trifold option folds into three panels rather than four and is printed double-sided by default. Ideally suited for when you like the concertina style but require a little bit more room for content.
The concertina invitation is a unique, all-in-one solution for a simple invitation option. The design features a detachable RSVP postcard and is perfect for invitations with minimal information.
Quality materials need to be held to be fully-appreciated - you can order samples from any of our invitation collections,
with the option of a colour and card swatch to assess to make sure you get the right materials and colours when it comes to your full order.
Our Day Stationery Collections
When it comes to the day itself, we've got you covered with stationery for the tables, larger scale signage and accessories.
Available as flat or tent-fold, our classy place cards are fully-personalised and have the option for menu choices printed on the reverse, too.
Our table numbers match each of our invitation and stationery designs, with simple 5" x 7" cards ready to be framed or used in a holder.
An iconic centrepiece for your big day, our table plans are professionally printed in either A2 or A1 sizing and a fully-customisable layout.
Simple and elegant wedding welcome signs that can be used for the main event and / or for the evening reception too - with the option of double-sided printing.
Wedding Guest books
Our new wedding guestbooks are made entirely in-house using traditional book-binding techniques. Match your stationery and choose from 20, 30 or 40 pages.
Wedding Thank You Cards
The big day may be done but there's still time to thank your wonderful wedding guests with our matching range of wedding thank you cards, either flat or folded like a greetings card.

News from Elle Bee
Meet the team
We're a tight-knit unit, running the business from our home studio in Worcester.
Here's our extended little family that makes it all tick.
Laura & Ian
This is us - a wife-and-husband team that runs Elle Bee Design. Laura is the brains behind all things papercraft and everything that requires a handmade touch. Ian takes care of the digital domain, covering designing, proofing and digital marketing.
When the spare time comes (which isn't often!), Laura likes to bake, tend to her fancy nails, and take frequent dips in the jacuzzi. Ian's mad keen on all things audio-visual, guitars, gaming, and is a fan (for some reason) of perennial football disappointers, West Ham.
We got married in Kenya in 2011 and travel is one of our favourite joint passions, with our absolute favourite place on the planet being Koh Samui in Thailand.
She doesn't make the largest of contributions, granted, but this old girl is not shy of letting us know of her presence. We've tried to get her to help with bookkeeping and admin but she's a bit too long in the tooth for all that, so she sleeps instead. Sadly on 4th June 2021 Lily passed away, aged 19 years. She will be terribly missed.
This handsome devil constantly keeps us on our toes and has been known to bond with our couples that visit for consultations (we don't use this as a sales technique, honest). If he's not chasing the local wildlife, he's eating us out of house and home.
Or Teddy, for short. This little bundle of fluff is the newest addition to our team - a dwarf mini lop!
Loves charging around the place, hopping about, cuddles - we'd really love to get Teddy doing some admin for us but he hasn't yet taken to spreadsheets. Give it time!
Bertha & Betty
We're probably showing our age here but we nicknamed our first commercial printer "Bertha", after a kids' TV show that featured a massive packing machine in a factory. We did this because Bertha weighs around 100kg or so and nearly killed us getting it into the home studio.
We enjoyed the process so much that we also adopted "Betty", who takes care of all our white ink printing. And so continues our trend of giving names to inanimate things...
Our newest addition for 2021 is Florence. Florence is a Hot Foil Printing Press that uses heat, pressure and foil to create stunning debossed foiled text and decoration. This machine weighs in at 77kg and we are proud to say that she is 100% made in Britain! Florence's job is to create eye catching and shiny stationery and greetings cards using an age-old method.
