Quirky, alternative, charming and beautiful hand drawn invitations and stationery
Who are we...
Hollyhock Lane is run by owner Julie Annis, who works on all the designs and stationery illustration, and is constantly scheming up new invitations and ideas. New to the team is Faye, who’s important role is getting all the behind the scenes admin jobs done!
Hollyhock Lane is a small stationery studio run by artist and designer Julie Annis based in Lewes, East Sussex, providing services nationally and internationally. She creates beautiful and unique, hand drawn and hand painted designs that can be personalised for your wedding, but also offers a custom service, for couples who want something truly unique and hand crafted for their big day.
Having studied fine art at art college in Edinburgh, and then working as a graphic designer for 10 years following that, in 2012 I felt it was time to combine my two talents and create a wedding stationery company that specialised in artistic and illustrated invitations. My vision is for each couple I work with to have an invitation suite which is an artistic expression of their day, a work of art to cherish and keep.
I love to give my clients the best service I can, so I will happily adapt all my 'off the shelf' designs to match their brief (fonts, colours and layout), often free of charge. Just get in touch if you have something specific in mind and I'm happy to chat through your ideas to help you create your dream stationery.
Hollyhock Lane actively chooses suppliers who’s business methods and practices strive to be eco-friendly and green. We are able to provide customers with a choice of paper stocks, giving them the option to print their wedding stationery on to either 100% recycled card or card which is FSC certified and only supplied by sustainable forests. And in the case of the 100% recycled card, this choice is combined with a quality printing system which uses eco friendly vegetable based inks. At our own studio, we always recycle all waste paper either through our own packaging materials where possible or through the local recycling system.
