Style & Inspiration
Paper Arrow Press was set up in 2012 by designer Rachel Russell, a Yorkshire girl living in East Dulwich, London. The creation of Paper Arrow Press came into being after Rachel designed her own wedding invitations.
Aimed at design-conscious couples who are looking for something more than the usual hearts and flowers for their save the date cards and wedding stationery, Paper Arrow Press works closely with each client to produce personal, stylish designs at an affordable price.
Paper Arrow Press offers two services; choose between a fully bespoke service, working with Rachel to design and create stationery to your specifications or if you're a couple on a tight budget, choose a pre-designed wedding collection which can be customised with your details.
Two customisable design collections are currently available Big Top, inspired by old time circus posters and designed to add a carnival atmosphere to your day and Bookish, to help you get your geek on, inspired by librarian chic! More pre-designed stationery collections are planned for later in the year.
Recent bespoke projects have been fully inspired by the couples themselves, taking their style and interests and translating them into cool, modern print pieces. These include a laid back beach wedding, a multilingual wedding in the Swiss lakes and a vintage Canadian wedding.
"My other half and I had a clear idea of how we wanted our wedding to look but had a small budget. We were lucky that we could create print pieces just as we wanted them. Not everyone has the time, ability or inclination to do this.
With Paper Arrow Press I want to offer the next best option; creative, affordable design combined with a fun and stress-free process. As a freelance graphic designer and illustrator I want to bring the same design aesthetic and attention to detail to wedding and event stationery as to any other design project.
Planning any big event is stressful but Paper Arrow Press can help you get one big tick on your list with a minimum level of fuss and maximum level of style," Rachel Russell, Designer at Paper Arrow Press.
