Meet the Team

Lets put faces to the names. We are the energy powering Now & Forever with our quality range of Irish Wedding Invitations.

Irish Wedding Invitations by Paddy & Jan

My name is Paddy White and my beautiful wife Jan is my trusted assistant and confidant!! Together we design, print, cut, fold, glue, glitter, tape and staple our way through a range of Irish wedding invitations and stationery.

Our stationery range includes

All aimed to cater for a wide range of brides and grooms and their personal choice and tastes. We are always available to answer your questions so feel free to contact us at any time buy phone or email.

With a background of over 12 years in graphic design I love to create new design ideas for our wedding stationery range. Equally, I love getting brides and grooms input to work with them to create new ideas that they have.  We recently created our first scratch card save the date card. This save the date allows guests to scratch off the circles to reveal the date of the couples big day.

By day I am designing and printing the stationery and by night we are a production team for folding, collating and stapling the likes of our 12-16page  wedding ceremony mass booklets, packaging orders, even handwriting guests names to take the work out of it for busy couples (this is Jan’s forte as my handwriting suggests i should have been a doctor  🙂

Family Life

With two small kids we try to take turns looking after them. Consequently, this creates the opportunity to allows us both to get some quality time with them. In light of this, we also get time to really get through the work load that inevitably comes with producing great stationery. We are firm believers that family is very important. Therefore, we hope to keep growing our family business and perhaps down the line the kids will be at an age where they could begin to help with some areas of the business.  At the minute, our 6 year old, Skyler loves to help in any way she can. With this in mind, we enjoy finding jobs for that can involve her that wont affect the quality of the products we offer.

Keep Up To Date

Well that is enough about us for now! However, we will keep you up to date with everything through our social media channels.  We showcase all our new designs there as we create them. From time to time, be sure to pop in and check out some of the new and interesting designs we come up with!!

Matching Your Colour Theme

On the majority of invites you can choose from any of our standard colours, or any standard Pantone spot colour. If you have a special colour you would like to match send us a swatch and we can endeavor to match it as closely as possible. Additional charges can sometimes apply for extra colour matching.

You Have The Final Say

We will send you proofs of the text for all your stationery items via email in the form of a jpg or a pdf document for you to view. We will not proceed with printing until you are 100% happy with the proof. We can also arrange a hard copy of your proofs if you would prefer. You would just need to inform us if you would like a hard copy when you are placing your order.

Are You Wondering How Many Invitations You Should Order

Before ordering your invitations be sure to finalise your guest list and remember that your guests may come as couples so you only need one invite between two or even one per family. We recommend ordering extra to allow last-minute additions to your list or the odd spelling error. It is much less expensive to order addtional invitations on your initial order than to pay for a second press run.
It is advisable to order your main invitations and your evening invitations all at the same time as this will help with designing and checking proofs.

When To Send The Invites Out

Boho Invitations Blue & Gold

You should send your invitations out no less than 8 weeks before your wedding day to ensure your guests have enough time to make any necessary arrangements.
We personally recommend though sending them out 3-4 months in advance so that as many guests as possible are able to organise time off work, babysitters etc.
If your wedding is planned near Christmas, Seasonal or Bank Holidays or is a destination holiday we recommend sending them out even earlier to give guests enough time to book hotels, flights etc
To be totally sure many couples now send out ” Save the date” cards 6-8months before the big day as it encourages people to pencil it in to their diaries and keep the date free.
