Wedding Stationery & Custom Maps

Drawberry Jam offers unique wedding stationery and personalised maps that are 100 percent tailored to you and your day. Using digital illustration, I create custom designs that will delight your guests, packed full of fun and interesting details. All invitation and map designs are created from scratch to meet your specification, and you will receive several drafts along the way to make sure everything is just right. If you’re looking for something out of the ordinary for your wedding, christening, anniversary or birthday party, I can help you create beautiful designs that are fun, memorable and all about you.

Wedding sets and one-offs

Whether you’d like a complete wedding stationery set with everything included, or just a one-off map illustration, the choice is completely yours. I am always happy to offer a discount for several items ordered together. However unusual your event may be, together we can create a very special bespoke stationery package for your guests to receive.

Of course, it doesn’t have to be wedding stationery. I will happily cater for all kinds of events, including parties, birthdays, christenings, anniversaries, baby showers, engagements and more. My illustrations also make lovely personal gifts, and can initially be drawn up at a much larger size to be printed and framed.

What’s included?

Here’s what my customers are usually looking for. But don’t be afraid to ask if you need something more specialist.

  • Save the dates & RSVP cards

  • Orders of service

Professional copywriting

With years of professional copywriting and editing experience under my belt, I also know a thing or two about wedding invitation wording. If you need help getting your marital message just right, I can provide a range of options to suit the tone and personality of your day. Looking for a fun wedding hashtag? I’m your woman.

How are the maps made?

Drawberry Jam offers a freelance illustration service based in Bristol. However, I can create a personalised map of anywhere – all you need to do is provide a Google Maps reference. In the gallery you will see examples from the UK, Ireland, Germany and Ukraine. All of these were made using Google Maps as a guide, with input from the couples involved.

Although simplified, the aim is for the final result to be as accurate as artistically possible. Local landmarks, accommodation and other relevant or historical sites will be included, and you will be asked questions about yourselves and your day in your free initial consultation, ensuring that the finished map is totally perfect.

I work through a series of drafts that allow you to check things are progressing smoothly, starting with a roughly sketched outline. Once confirmed, I draw everything out in detail and add colour. In addition to the list of locations you give me, I also do some of my own research to factor in local wildlife, points of interest and seasonal themes. Some couples also choose to have a portrait of themselves included in the finished design. This is not compulsory, but it’s a nice touch.

How long does it take?

This is a hard question to answer as every job is so different. I work at a creative agency here in Bristol, and so I make time for my own freelance illustration work during evenings and weekends. I usually ask for approx. one month to create a detailed wedding map – from consultation to completion. If you have a particular timescale in mind, I will work very hard to meet that deadline for you. I understand the importance of getting your wedding invitations and save the dates posted in good time.

Testimonials

I’m lucky to have worked on personalised wedding designs for some truly lovely people. Here’s what some of them have to say about working with me.

Printing options

Want your wedding stationery designs printed and sent you? No problem. I work with an excellent local printer here in Bristol who will print and ship your finished artwork to you, so all you have to do is address them and pop them in the post. They provide a global courier delivery service that must be signed for on arrival. I always check a print proof of the finished work.

The designs are printed on good-quality 300 gsm paper stock in brilliant white, ivory or cream. More specialist stock is available if desired. You can also opt for plain white envelopes included, or you can source your own for something a little more fancy.

If you’d rather handle your own printing, that’s fine too. I will provide a print-ready PDF to your printer’s specifications on completion. This can sometimes be cheaper if you are not based in the UK.

What does it cost?

To make things easier, I offer three pricing tiers, depending on how many items you order and what level of time and detail is required. Because my custom maps and invitations are designed from scratch, a lot of time and love goes into them.

  • Tier 1 – for one item only: starting from £200
  • Tier 2 – for up to three items: starting from £400
  • Tier 3 – for more than three items: starting from £600

Please bear in mind that every job is different, so please get in touch for an accurate quote. If you’d like printing included, this is added on top once we have agreed quantity and size, etc.

I ask for a 25% deposit upfront and the rest of the payment once the design goes to print. Payment is usually made via bank transfer or PayPal: whichever you prefer.

Jenna was a pleasure to work with and conscientiously incorporated all our requests into her designs, working through several drafts with us until we found what we were after. The end result is totally unique and all thanks to her care, attention and talent. Highly recommend if you want a colourful and welcoming invitation to communicate the authenticity of your wedding!

Jenna totally understood mine and my fiancés vision for our wedding invitations and produced a near perfect draft of what we were after right from the start. In fact it was better than what we could have imagined! I can highly recommend using Drawberry Jam for any aspects of your wedding that require personalisation and fun creativity!

Emma B

We have loved the process of getting our invites and maps done. Jenna is not only a fantastic illustrator but she’s lovely to deal with and very organised. The invites look amazing, and our friends and family have really enjoyed receiving them. We highly, highly recommend Drawberry Jam.

Lindsay W

Working with Jenna was just great and seeing the map-invitation grow was fun. We’d never thought we would be looking forward so much to sending out our invites as we ultimately did, when the artwork was done. Now, the first reactions from our guests are in and all said they had a smile on their face when getting the card – what a nice way to set the tone for your wedding.
