We are both friends working as designers and the foto-fusion partnership started after Suzanne’s wedding in 2003. There was nothing on the market for very special thank you cards using a picture from the wedding . Yes there were plain printed cards around, but your wedding day is the best day of your life! It had to be superb quality but most of all personal and special.
Nicola took a great photo that really captured the day for Suzanne and James so the two designers set about designing something unique and special.
We wanted to bring the photo to life and they did this by printing the image onto a transparent film to allow the light to shine through the image like a window. This concept made foto-fusion cards totally unique.
We wanted a superb archive quality product, so we sourced a recyclable hand felted card from a mill in Italy. The mill have made paper since 1715 and use a lot of innovative alternative and recycled fibres for its paper– including Recycled Paper, Cotton, Wool, Silk and Milk! For every tree harvested for production another 3 are planted.
The cards also had to be stylish, and stand the test of time as well as personal for each client so we designed the cards along the ‘less is more’ principle making the photo the main element of the card. We compliment the photo with any font any colour so each card is unique and special to that customer.
Working together for 13 years now the style has pretty much stayed the same.
We have always listened to our customers and when they said they wanted bigger cards with larger photos we added the large square cards and have expanded the range. When we first started we mostly did just wedding thank you cards but now we do all kinds of baby cards, Christmas, invitations, orders of service and funeral cards. We have even done recently cards for pets! Our cards are as unique as our customers and we love the fact each one is so different.
We have created this new site ourselves as we want to give our customers ideas and feedback on the latest work we have created.
When we are asked what most surprised us about the business we both say;-
“We are always amazed at the really lovely e-mails and feedback we get from our customers and an overwhelming appreciation for the care and time we take to make them perfect. “
Our clients very often keep coming back to us so over the years we see them get married, have children celebrate birthdays. Its so lovely to be part of our clients special events making them so personal.
We make your cards look FABULOUS!! If you can give us a flavour or theme of your wedding we can create something to really capture the feel of your event. Your cards will be treasured by your friends and family something to cherish.
We care about the products and service we provide and go out of our way to make them as special as we can. We are only a very small business just the two of us so we do have great attention to detail for every order.
We don't just create something special we make it personal too!
