"We came to Claire late in the day for invitations! We foolishly thought that we could make them ourselves (because of cost and we didn't want something traditional), but when it came to actually making them, we realised that we were out of our depth. Our friend recommend Claire, so we decided to go and talk through our ideas, which were very vague as we didn't know what we wanted, but knew exactly what we didn't want! Claire spent ages with us talking through ideas and came up with 5 samples a week later. The samples were great, with one being PERFECT, unlike any I'd ever seen and at a great price too. We then asked Claire to do our place cards, table plan and orders of service, which were amazing too!

"Nothing was too much bother for Claire and we were always offered a cuppa when we went round. Claire even helped us choose our 3rd hymn! I would recommend Claire Blake stationary to anyone!"

- Katie & Stephen

"We could never thank you enough for all of the hard work and effort that went into creating our beautiful wedding stationery. You helped to both create and capture our theme and it couldn’t have been more perfect. Your designs received glowing comments from our family and friends and now we have the most beautiful keepsakes from our day. I look forward to working with you for whatever our next event will be! Thanks again and best wishes."

"When we set out to plan our wedding, we decided early on (after many trips to wedding fairs) that we would find the people we wanted to work with rather than looking for specific products. When we first met you at Newcastle, we found you very friendly and approachable; you explained your service well and had some great products on display to give us a taste of the sort of things you had produced for others.

"When we met you at your home, you listened to how we wanted our day to go and how we wanted our stationery to be a key theme that tied all of the elements together, with the colour scheme matching the decor of the day and the flowers, and particularly the element of tying the tartan theme from my highland dress. You took this all in and suggested options that might suit, sharing your experience of providing a bespoke service. You had a lot of options and choice, and even though our requests might not have been 'off the shelf', you were open to all of our suggestions.

"When we suggested we would like a 'logo' unique to us to run through the theme you kindly had this designed for us (it turned out exactly as we wanted) and incorporated it into all of the products. You also went the extra mile to source tartan ribbon to frame our seating plan and room sign.

"Your pricing was very competitive and fair, and you were happy to talk through options over the phone to make sure we got exactly what we were looking for.

"All in all, we felt very at ease with your manner and experience, and we were over the moon with the designs and products you provided. Your suggestions and experience helped us to get exactly what we wanted, you had a huge range of options and nothing was too much trouble.

"We would have no hesitation in recommending you to others and would certainly be coming straight back to you if we need similar services in future.

"It was a pleasure dealing with you and we wish you all the very best in the future; I'm sure all your customers will be as happy as we were.

"Thanks again, and kindest regards"

We would definitely recommend you to anyone who is planning a wedding - thanks again!"

"Impressed by the quality of her products and workmanship, I introduced Claire to my son, who was organising his forthcoming wedding.

"Recently I was delighted to receive my invitation, produced by Claire, and was immediately struck by her vibrant use of colour and attention to detail.

"In the design of the card, Claire was able to encapsulate the couple's personality and set the mood for what will undoubtedly be a wonderful occasion.

"Many of the guests have refered to the invitation as 'a work of art'."

"I am having a Masquerade Ball to celebrate my wedding and wanted my invitations to mirror the elaborate nature of the event. I couldn't find anything in the shops, so asked Claire as I was confident she could design something different and special. After our design meeting, she created several different designs. We chose our favourite, added a few extra ideas, and I can simply say they are absolutely perfect, everything we wanted. Everyone has commented on how unusual and eye catching they are and I have recommended her to anyone I know who is planning a wedding or a function."
