Uniquely Crafted Hand

Painted Wedding Invitations


Design |  Technique |  Timing |  Design Packages



To create your uniquely crafted hand painted wedding invitations, the designer Rubana works best from visual images or any picture you have that best represents your optical inspiration. The creative designer Rubana, would love to hear from you, whether you’d prefer email, Skype, Facetime, or even schedule a weekend call or an out of office hours call in the evening.

Contact her by email  at rubana@crimsonletters.com and have a quick chat. Perhaps you’re inspired by some tiles, a printed fabric, or a place like the beach, a visit to an exotic country, or maybe it’s a Japanese kimono. The more inspiration, the easier it will be to draw a strong design concept that you will love.


Uniquely Crafted Hand Painted Wedding Invitations
Perhaps you’re bowled over by some wall tiles, maybe it’s blue skies or velvety orange flowers, whatever it is, designer Rubana can shape your stationery using your vision.




You can create a secret Pinterest board to collaborate and share your vision for colours, images, illustrations and the overall look and theme that you’d like to incorporate.

In order to create your uniquely crafted hand painted wedding invitations and exclusive range of stationary, Rubana will enjoy finding out about you as a couple and how your love story began. How did you meet? What are your interests? Where will your event be held? What are the colours that will be used throughout your wedding event? Every idea can be used as inspiration point to create a distinctive design tailored to the ideas for your special day.




During the first few weeks of your order, Crimson Letters will work closely with you, noting each of your ideas to put into your designs. Detailing what is needed and expected from your opulent suite package, the master copy of your design is then digitally copied and printed onto fine paper, then hand-painted to help give an authentic fine art look.


Calligraphy can be printed from the master copy, however if hand calligraphy is required with your uniquely crafted hand painted wedding invitations, this will be at an additional cost.




Timing is determined by the quality and complexity of your order. If you will be selecting a design from the portfolio and stationery requires minimal design alterations, light painting and only 20-50 cards are needed, your order can be expected within 4-6 weeks. Again, if you desire a design from the collection displayed in the portfolio and only wish to alter a name or text change, it can again be expected within 4-6 weeks.

For large bespoke order with various intricately painted pieces and detailed designs, or when Crimson Letters will outsource gold foiling, letterpress or acrylic designs these can take anywhere from 3-5 months. For those who have a specific deadline that they would like their order ready for, make sure you leave plenty of time to help prevent any stress or worry up until your required date.
