The paper pretties we peddle often provided the first glimpse of our clients’ impending pledges and parties. They begin the story, they build all kinds of anticipation and they form the first impression that their guests have of the perfectly marvellous merrymaking they have to look forward to. When it comes to the kind of mood you want to create, the type of venue you have chosen and the style and decorative elements that you’re incorporating, we believe it’s important that the stationery you choose will trigger the right response and do all of your hard work and tireless planning justice. Whether we gather your ideas and whip up a truly original piece or whether we turn a pre-existing design sample into a Lines and Squares creation of your very own, our mission is the same each and every time; to inspire thoughtful creativity for announcements of note, which tell the stories of each of our wonderfully unique clients through our love of all things paper and ink.
Dating back over 570 years to the invention of moveable type in 1440, letterpress is the oldest form of printing available. It is a true labour of love that involves skill, patience and finesse and reflects an era of quality craftsmanship that the Lines and Squares team is proud to uphold centuries later. As with all of our products, each of our letterpress creations are individually designed in consultation with our clients. Negatives and steel backed photopolymer plates are created from our digital designs, which are then inked and pressed into the surface of the finest and fluffiest of imported cotton rag stocks, creating a highly tactile, marked impression. In this modern day and age of off-the-rack things made on the cheap, letterpress allows us to honour the traditions of days gone by and hold a little bit of history in our hands.
In an attempt to fulfil our constant need for something new and exciting to keep the paper world on its toes (and to do our part to preserve this world in which we live), the team at Lines and Squares have launched our own line of custom designed recycled papers and prodcuts. Preparing paper pulps using the masses of offcuts generated when compiling our creations, each individual sheet and eco-friendly artefact is made by hand to order, making each piece unique, special and personalised; just the way we like it.
Lines and Squares offers clients the opportunity to choose from a range of different services and our team has worked hard to design our stationery packages to suit a broad range of budgets and specific needs. Below is a layout of the standard packages on offer, which have been created to give you an idea of the different options possible; however, the only rule is that there really aren’t any rules. Packages can be easily mixed and matched, allowing clients to do as little or as much work as their hearts desire.
