I'm Lizzie, designer/creator behind Connie & Joan wedding invitations, stationery, wall hangings and templates.Design and being creative has always been something that keeps me busy and holds my interest - whether it's interiors, soft furnishings, graphic design, illustration or keeping up-to-date with the latest computer design technology and how it can be used.
A few years back, working as web designer for the Press Association in London, I designed and maintained websites for the Royal family - including their online magazine 'Royal Insight’. Having web design knowledge and this experience has been greatly beneficial in understanding the visual differences between print and web, and the advantages of having been involved in browser testing has helped a great deal with software problem solving. All of which has prepared and enabled me to design, create (and help where needed) digital templates that can be customised by the user before turning them into unique and personal stationery items.
'Connie & Joan' came about when I started providing brides & grooms with affordable yet professionally designed invitation templates for their weddings and it has progressed from there. I now offer a wide range of stationery templates for weddings (and am slowly adding other occasions). These templates you would customise with your own wording and change colours where shown (to compliment your colour theme) before having them printed at your local print/copy shop, online or instantly in the comfort of your home!
I am continually adding templates to the shop... and love hearing all about your ideas as it helps me in providing something a bit different and unique, while also keeping up with trends. So if you can't find what you're looking for, please message me!
Each of my templates come with clear, easy to follow instructions on how to create the final product, whether it's a wedding invitation, folded program or signage. But if you find you need extra help or you're having a computer problem, please let me now as I'm always happy to help out! The goal is that you will have beautiful stationery on your special day!
Making your own wedding stationery is really quite fun and fairly simple to do... Start with a professionally designed template and bring your vision to life :) . You might like to try one of my free wedding stationery templates / printables
Some of you may wish to know that more recently I have been making printed wedding stationery, based on my most popular designs... I've realised that some people just prefer to have everything made for them. So if you're one of those, please do get in touch. I will customise, print and deliver to you - all at an affordable price.
I hope you enjoy browsing my shop.
Should you have any feedback or questions, or even ideas for me, please do drop me a line! And remember, if you're needing a bit of help with your template, please just message me here!
Oh... and if you're wondering, Connie and Joan were my dear grandmothers.
