I'm Clare and in 2005 I set up this business from my dining room table. Just myself and a desire to create beautiful things. I spent the last 10 years working to create this website to provide beautiful personalised greetings cards for the moments in life that we cherish, personalised gifts for loved ones and luxury invitations for weddings and events. Because family, friends and homelife is everything. The beautiful moments that make up our lives such as Birthdays, births, Christenings and love should be celebrated. Day in and day out.
I still work day to day in the business as Creative Director but instead Made
With Love is now a leading design studio in the UK with a team of 4. We're based in a beautiful 19th century old cotton mill, based in Stalybridge, Cheshire, North West of England - about 6 miles outside Manchester.
From our studio we hand blend and pour our luxury soy wax candles, which we then foil and personalise in house too. We hand make every single personalised card and finish them with feathers, crystal brooches and silky sashes. We individually gold foil every single wedding invitation by hand to create that all important luxe factor. We produce, manufacture and pack all from our busy studio in the Northwest. It's in this studio where we also meet lovely Brides to be and offer consultations (by appointment only) for our weddings and events invitation clients. It's a large studio, bustling and busy. A creative hub of design, whirling of printers and the snapping of a camera somewhere in the background. When we're not on location shooting our personalised gifts in a forest for example, we shoot all of our products in house too, which makes it handy for journalists who can request hi-res themed images fast for their print deadlines.
Our goal is simple: we aim to be the best luxury wedding invitations and personalised greetings card design company in the UK. We never stop innovating and designing and welcome bespoke design work wherever we can fit it in.
For our customers shopping on this website we hand make luxury greetings cards that are personalised to order online, luxury stationery for weddings and beautiful personalised gifts to celebrate life’s most special occasions. We also do more simpler greetings card ranges for wholesale which we sell to retail and shops in the UK.
Our stationery is not like anything you would find on the
high street in most shops and we don't use materials used
by corporate publishing companies. For something a little
bit different that's a bit special and unique to you. A little bit fancy pants. Proud to be British, we are proud to support UK business, and use local suppliers wherever possible in our products. We use unique printing and paper techniques such as Thermography, Hot Foil, Foil Stamping on fine boards from 120-600gsm.
Our luxury wedding stationery, greetings cards & furniture has featured in
the best bridal magazines & worlds media (itv, channel 4 etc),
and have a clientele of discerning brides, celebrities & heads of state. We have shipped wares & makes to Kensington Palace, The Shard, luxury hotels around the world and Governments. Which still makes my belly jump thinking about it. Our cards are now also available for sale in shops across the country.
