How we work...

Welcome to Papers By Mae - where love stories unfold on paper. Every love story is unique, a whirlwind of emotions, stories, and shared dreams. From the time you announce your special day with an invitation to the moment you express gratitude with a thank you card, each piece of stationery we create is designed to resonate with your unique love story.


Our Products:

  • Wedding Invitations: Set the tone for your special day with our bespoke wedding invitations, tailored to your theme, colour scheme, and personal style.

  • Wedding Signage: Welcome your guests and guide them seamlessly through your venue with personalised signs that match your wedding's vibe.

  • Menus: Elevate the dining experience with elegantly designed menus that not only inform but impress.

  • Place Name Cards & Table Numbers: Ensure that every guest finds their seat with ease with our beautifully designed place name cards and table numbers.

  • Thank You Cards: Convey your heartfelt gratitude with custom thank you cards that leave a lasting impression. Weddings are more than just ceremonies; they are stories that deserve to be told and cherished for a lifetime.


At Papers By Mae, we don't just create stationery; we craft memories. We invite you to be a part of our story as we become a part of yours.

Submit an enquiry


Once you have completed the online questionnaire, we will contact you with a quote. The quote will provide a detailed breakdown of the costs based on your requests. Please note that the quote is subject to change as we make edits and customise your package to best suit your needs.

Digital Proofs


Once you have submitted your specifications form, our team will begin working on your designs. You can anticipate receiving digital proofs within two weeks.



You will receive the final invoice six weeks before your desired date of receiving the Wedding Stationery, unless you have chosen a payment plan. It ' s important to note that any delays in providing feedback on the final proofs or making payment will result in a delay in processing your order. Please keep this timeframe in mind and plan accordingly. Once the full balance has been paid, your stationery will be processed, printed, carefully packaged, and sent out to you. Expect a turnaround time of 4 weeks from receipt of payment.

Complete a specifications form


Once you have approved the quote, you will receive a specifications form to complete. This form will ask for specific details that you would like to include in your Wedding Stationery. Please feel free to include any images you have come across for inspiration



You will also have the option to request samples. We provide two types of samples: generic samples, requiring a deposit of £30 plus postage, or custom samples, which require a deposit of 25% of the total cost plus postage. Any additional samples requested, will be charged appropriately and are non-refundable.

Payment Information




If you prefer to make a full payment closer to the delivery date, this is the most suitable option for you. Once you have placed your order, you will receive an invoice with a specified pay-by date. Typically, the payment is requested 6 weeks before your stationery is scheduled to be delivered.


Payment Plan

On larger orders, we offer 3-month or 6-month payment plans. This involves scheduling monthly payments until the full balance is paid. The full balance will need to be paid 6 weeks before you are due to receive your stationery.



We understand that your ideas and materials may change throughout the process. Therefore, quotes are subject to change as we work through and adapt your package.
