PEN & FOLD | Celia Evans
Please get in touch for your free consultation and moodboard.
I am SO happy that you've come to see what we do!
Pen & Fold specialises in luxury laser cut and foil-pressed wedding stationery. I’m Celia and I’ve been running Pen & Fold with my husband from our workshop in the Cotswolds for nearly two years. We are wood-walkers, shire-dwellers, doodlers and thing-makers. We love to make beautiful creations out of paper and draw a lot of inspiration from our beautiful rural surroundings.
We enjoy playfully side-stepping the norms of wedding designs through experimentations with shapes and colours. The collection created specifically for the Most Curious Wedding Fair was inspired by recurring patterns found in nature. Examples include designs based on leaf veins and rock striations, the intricacies of which lend themselves perfectly to the precision of laser cutting.
Please get in touch if you'd like to receive some samples.
However, if you're interested in working with us to fulfil a design brief, take a look below at our previous design work.
Hello, I'm Celia.
'Celia is the absolute dream - we are getting married on Saturday and have just picked up all the stationery from her. It is all perfect - stunning designs, amazing quality and always beautifully packaged! We can't wait for everyone to see it.
Celia is wonderful to work with - cheery, thoughtful, flexible (with our multiple last minute requests!) and most importantly super artistic. We would recommend her to anyone - a real gem!' Liz Pollard, September 2017
'Celia and I collaborated on designing a custom laser cut wedding invitation suite and each of the pieces turned out even better than I could have imagined! She is among the most professional designers that I have ever worked with (and I am in marketing so that is saying a lot). She was extremely accommodating, always addressing my feedback promptly while offering solutions and recommendations to meet my needs. Her positivity and sense of humour is contagious - she made the whole creative process a breeze. Celia worked within my budget to produce the most beautiful Pinterest-worthy stationery at an outstanding price. I have already initiated another project with her and will keep Celia on speed dial!'

Brief 2 Event, created Precision. Passion. Perfection. a Corporate Event for Miele. They wanted to invite designers to the event to demonstrate the high quality of their products and their passion for design.
I was asked to design an e-invitation that linked to a website to set the scene and provide all of the necessary information for the event. I was then asked to create various on the day graphic products, such as a Miele bag, wine label, vinyl graphics, stencils and a window display.
Following the event, I designed another e-invitation and website to sum up the event.

'Straightaway Celia came across as a very passionate and attentive designer. She created a really excellent and imaginative first draft of samples, and her subsequent versions were always precise and relevant to what I was after. She was also very efficient at making the required changes and delivering new drafts. It's been a real pleasure working with her.'

Alex is a qualified Barber, she needed a simple, sophisticated logo that would draw the attention of her clients. The business cards have been printed in white ink on Black card, to improve the quality of the print and the of the completed business card.
'Celia's unbriefed style was so beautiful. It was so nice to work with someone who doesn’t just need a strict brief for everything and could put her own flair on things.
She was SO quick. Time was of the essence and she just cracked on with everything I sent.
I’ve found her personally absolutely lovely to work with. I felt like nothing was too much trouble.
