Maria did a fantastic job designing and printing our wedding invites. We had very specific ideas about what we wanted and we found Maria great to work with because she made as many changes as we wanted until we were sure we were happy with the design. The quality of the printed invites did not disappoint either and we got lots of complements on them from our guests. I would highly recommend Maria to anyone thinking about ordering wedding stationary!

Maria recently designed our wedding invitations. I outlined to Maria I would like whimsical autumn themed stationary and she delivered perfectly. Maria was so easy to communicate with and took each of our ideas on board and turned them into something fabulous. I would highly recommend Maria especially if you are looking for something unique and creative.

I first met with Maria over the summer to talk about our wedding invitations and immediately knew she was the right person to work with. She had so many fantastic ideas and was interested in creating something special for us. I gave her a rough guide as to what we wanted and after that she presented us with some samples, we chose our favourite, added a few details we liked and that was it!Maria was so easy to communicate with and the whole process was incredibly simple. We're over the moon with the finished product and have already recommended her to loads of couples. Thanks a million, Maria!

"We would like to highly recommend Creative Edge design company for any branding or material to be designed.  Posters, business cards and flyers were designed for a helpline as well as beer mats for support services.  The design really stood out and Creative Edge were able to target the material to e.g. young people etc. "
