When I first saw the Bridal Shower invitation, I instantly fell in love - it was perfect and fitted my theme in every way. I sent an enquiry and the turnaround time was almost instant. I had to make 2 rounds of edits (sorry Bec) and she was only ever so happy to help. Looking forward to doing the wedding map – it's such a unique and brilliant idea! Thank you so much. x

About

Hand crafted illustrations & calligraphy for artful homes, weddings & celebrations.

Berry and Peg is all about celebrating how beautiful life can be, with a firm nod to the traditions of yesteryear and a plethora of beautiful handmade crafts under my belt, my aim is encouraging people to appreciate hand made and the old fashioned way of communicating, which is rarely appreciated in today’s world!
Hand illustrated invitations help you to herald the loveliness of the occasion in a unique way, it is your opportunity to reflect who you are as a couple. It’s so important to let your imagination and personality shine through in your event, after all, it’s these thoughtful little touches you and your guests will remember. You and your lucky friends and family will agree no body loves anything more then receiving a beautiful package all tied up with love in the mail.

The name Berry and Peg came about from my grandparents, My mother’s mother was Berice (Berry) and my dad’s mother was, Margaret (Peg). Their vintage is my dream time where people wore gloves and a hat to go to town and time was taken for beautifully crafted things. So it just seemed to make sense naming the business after the people from the time it was inspired.

My childhood love of story books helped me realise that my passion lay with using my watercolour illustrations and calligraphy to tell stories and paint maps of wonders to come. I like the challenge of capturing the essence of a place and a couple. There is nothing more exciting than a map featured at the start of a book, you know you are in for a good time, and so it is with weddings. There is no better way to herald an event.
Celebrating life isn’t just all about the big events (weddings etc) but all the little bits in between that make up our lives. Everything used to have such ceremony about it, even the afternoon cup of tea was an event in Victorian times. Try having your tea in your favourite bone china tea cup and ‘poof’ instant whimsy and jollity. You only live once so it seems like a pity to not have dessert AND use the good china to eat it.
Being a small business means I can work personally with all my lovely customers to ensure you get what you love. I offer what I am best at – a creative and reliable service with a smile! (I only take on a certain number of clients a year, so be sure to book quickly) I am passionate about adding handmade details to my work, evocative of rare arts and traditions. I use a combination of traditional processes finished with digital techniques, with my vintage inspired hand illustrated designs to create a day which is truly unique to you. Let’s create a whole suite together.
I work in a home studio in Brisbane Australia, smothered with inspiring pretties. Each of my handmade/illustrated goodies is a labour of love, effort seems effortless if you love what you are doing.
If you have a special request such as personalised wedding maps, illustrations or invitations, please contact me and I would love to help.

It’s important that you leave the Berry and Peg shop happier than you came, so please make sure you read our frequently asked questions, shop policies and shipping information before making any purchases.

I hope you enjoy owning Berry and Peg prints as much as I love making them!
Thanks for visiting, come again soon to see my new ranges.

It is the policy of Rebecca Eddison that the balance be paid in full for the design work, upon receipt of your final invoice, before any development work begins. Further invoices for the project must be paid in full before printing commences.

When your order has shipped expect another email to let you know to watch the doorstep.

Late payments

Berry & Peg reserves the right to postpone the project to my next availability or cancel a project, without refund of previous payments, if a payment is late. Please note this may increase the project cost to current rates if applicable.

Berry and Peg always ships registered post for Australian and International orders to protect both the buyer and seller. If you would like a reduced shipping rate and feel comfortable with Berry and Peg posting unregistered, please convo me and I will work you out a new shipping rate. Pick Up Collection can be arranged by appointment if you are in the Brisbane/Gold Coast area.
Please feel free to convo me if you have any special shipping needs like express post, just make sure you do this before you go to the check-out so I can work out your new shipping rates. For instance if you are buying a number of products-it’s easier and cheaper for you if we ship them all together.

All orders are made-to-order so a processing time is required. Unless otherwise stated, orders are shipped within 2-4 weeks of receipt of payment (you will receive an email when it has shipped) Larger orders (over 130) will require additional time for creation. Customized orders require additional time.

Please note that buyers are responsible for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred.

Orders are wrapped very carefully, in a plastic bag them into their shipping packaging, to prevent damage and bent corners. Berry and Peg is not responsible for packages damaged or lost by shipping.

Additional policies and FAQs
REPRESENTATION OF PRODUCTS
I do my best to photograph my products and to provide thorough information in my listings so that the sizes, colors and materials are represented accurately. Colors, textures and sizes may appear different on screen. If you are concerned about the size of our items or are concerned about matching colors, please purchase a sample in advance of placing an order.

Revisions & Amendments:
Bespoke designs include up to three rounds of amends. Additional amends or changes to your stationery outside of this will be charged at my hourly rate of $40.
For Collection stationery – a maximum of two rounds of amends are included in the total cost; anything above this will incur a charge of $20 per amend.
You are responsible for the proof reading of all text and copy in the pdf proofs supplied. I will not begin print production until I have received written email from you referencing the correct proof to proceed with and full payment of the final invoice.
Please note that we cannot accept returns due to customer input or typographical errors. When your final proof is approved you accept responsibility for any errors. If mistakes are discovered after final printers proof approval, I will charge for any reprinting.
Printing Variations:
I spend a great deal of time on photography to ensuring I as accurately as possible represent the colour and detail in each piece.  Keep in mind however that monitors display colours differently. Please note that samples may not exactly match the finished product due to variations in the print production process. Press set-up, plates, ink and paper can all result in minor variations. Minor differences in texture, colour, size and positioning can sometimes occur and do not constitute a fault or a refund.
If you are directly colour matching your prints to something specific, I recommend a Printers proof to check colours, available upon request at an additional cost of $30 per proof. Or if you can find the pantone swatch number I will be happy to match to this.
Wear & Tear:
Berry & Peg accepts no responsibility for the effect of ageing and wear & tear on the materials used. All original illustrations use archival quality ink.

Copyright:
All designs and illustrations are the copyright and property of Rebecca Eddison. Neither you, nor a third party, may copy any part of the design or reproduce it in any way, without permission of Rebecca Eddison.
It is your responsibility to obtain permission for any copyright material, for example portraits, hymns or poems that are to feature in your stationery.
The Client acknowledges that Berry & Peg is able to reuse any invitation options that do not progress past 1st stage.
Copyright of all illustration, artwork and/or design remains with Berry & Peg unless otherwise agreed. Berry & Peg retains the right to use the work for self promotion, including placement in portfolio and online after the date of the wedding.
Artwork / invitation / design usage must be strictly limited to agreed purpose unless otherwise agreed with an additional fee negotiated. Please contact us if you would like to enquire about buyout fees. Berry & Peg will release high-resolution artwork for use of project only once final payment has been made, no original paintings will be sold.

The work must not be modified, changed or altered in any way without prior written consent from Berry & Peg.

Rebecca Eddison shall not be liable in any way for late delivery on the part of the courier.

Any items returned without prior consultation will not be compensated for postage/delivery charges.

Items that are damaged after delivery or after use will not be refundable or exchanged.

FAQ


I am a small hand made business, I believe your stationery is the perfect way to illustrate the beauty and unique loveliness of your day to your guests, being their first contact with your event. I want your experience working with me to be a happy one and just as lavishly personal as the invites I create, therefore I have a limited number of custom jobs I take on per year. So book in your time so we can create something just perfect for you.

Ordering Stationery is one of the most exciting things to organise for the wedding, it is the bit guests treasure as keepsakes. So to make this a joyous task, please read through my most Frequently Asked Questions below for guidance. If you have any further questions, never hesitate to ask. Call for a chat on 0438 750 503 or email berryandpeg [!at] gmail.com.

♥ What is the process for ordering my invitations from your shop?

It's easy! The process is as follows:

You contact me with any questions that you have or purchase the listing and you send me your wording and details for the invitations or purchase and your shipping address and email.

I then create your proofs, email them to you and place a custom listing in the shop just for you. You then look them over and let me know if you have any changes or edits. Once I make those changes and email you an edit to approve the proof, and your shipping cost, then purchase the listing for the prints and I print and post it to you.

How long will it take to design?
Because all of my designs are unique, the time it takes to complete them differs too. Bespoke illustration and design takes a little longer as we strive to make it perfect for you. Remember we will need time to brainstorm and design your suite, illustrate by hand, which takes time, then proof, print, assemble with love and deliver to you so a good guideline is to allow at least three months for your stationery. It can be confusing but here is the formula for working out when to send your stationery.

Date of your wedding
- Date the venue needs last notice for the number of guests (usually 2 weeks, but do check with your venue when you book)
Make your RSVP date a week before this so you have time to chase up any guests who struggle with promptness.
Allow your guests 6 weeks to RSVP by sending the invites around about 2 months before the wedding (depending on when your venue needs final numbers)

=So if you are getting married in September, plan to have sent your invitations by the end of June, so you will need to book my for three months prior in March-April.

If you have a lot of out of town guests or a destination wedding, where more elaborate plans will have to be made, you might consider sending the invitations a little earlier again. Accommodation lists and local information illustrated pieces can really finish off your suite in this case too, and is a kind touch for your guests.

If you’re not sure whether there’s enough time to have your stationery designed, please do get in touch and we can chat through the options, Berry and Peg has a ready to go collection with a much shorter turnover. It is important to me that I lavish the time and resources you deserve for your wedding, this means I allow up to 3 weeks for the creation of your artwork. Something to keep in mind… a major component of timing is in your hands, so a speedy return of the information I need to get started, approval of design and payment makes for a faster order. Rush orders are available, see below.

♥ How do I determine the number of invitations to order?

•Send one invitation per couple.
•If the couple has children under the age of 18, include them in the invitation (if you would prefer an adult-only event, do not include the names of children on the invitation).
•Send separate invitations to people over the age of 18, even if they are living with their parents.
•Send invitations to single friends and note on the inner envelope only whether they may bring a guest.
•Include 10 extra invitations with your original order to cover last-minute guest list additions or addressing mistakes. It's much more cost-efficient to order 10 extras initially than to place a new order for 10 invitations and pay for extra shipping. Extra invitations can become keepsakes for your memory album and for your parents and grandparents.
I would love your positive feedback – all smiles and warm fuzzies welcome!

♥ What if it is a custom order?
I love designing new things, so please convo me with your ideas and requirements and make a design work payment, then on receipt of payment I begin illustrating and designing, send you a proof to edit and approve. You check the spelling and approve the proof, check your timeline and our shipping, then purchase the listing and I send them off to be printed.
I am a little behind on plannng, are rush orders available?
Depending on current client demands, rush order are available upon request. Just email me and I will let you know ASAP so you can get organised. There is an additional fee for rush orders of 35% of the total order. Side note: Rush order doesn’t mean the order is actually rushed, the standards are still high! It just means I juggle around me queue of work for the month.

How does the bespoke process work?
You contact us with your idea for your package, or get us to make some suggestions (you can either come in or call for a chat or we can do it all over email). I have a list of easy peezy questions for you to answer to give me a creative direction. If you live around the Brisbane area, I love meeting for coffee (*cough cough* and cake) then we can really get the ball rolling, and I have a lovely vintage picnic basket of samples, ribbons and papers I am always thrilled to bring along.
Then I will send you a quote for approval. You pay 50% to book my time for the design and send me your text for the invites etc. I come back to you with some artwork options and sketches or a combination of the concepts. You choose one for further development. I get creative with my watercolours and after a little tweaking on my laptop I send you the digital proof of your artwork within 4 weeks. This is the part where you check everything SUPER CAREFULLY and make sure you’re happy with size and overall look.

Bespoke orders include up to three sets of amends and one set of amends is included free of charge with semi-custom orders. Any additional changes will be charged at my hourly rate of $40. Unfortunately, errors or mistakes on your part that aren’t picked up at the proofing stage won’t be eligible for refunds. Additional fees will be charged to Client for revisions made that reflect a new direction for the assignment or new conceptual input. If the work exceeds what is outlined within this quotation the Client will be charged at negotiated fee. No additional fees will be charged to bring final artwork up to original specifications.

Colours may vary from screen to screen so we recommend a printed proof if you want colours to be matched. Printed proofs are $35 and include postage. Changes can be made at this point but once you’re happy with your final proof it’s time to email us your approval and pay the final amount. Upon receipt of payment we get printing and assembling. I use small local Australian printing firm so I have control over quality and work conditions. Your order is then posted out to you, protected and beautifully packaged with brown paper and string.

When should I book?
Honestly, as soon as possible, I lavish as much time as I can on each personal invitation I create, therefore only take on a certain amount each year, so get in touch to book my time. If you’re marrying overseas, most of my destination couples contact me a year before their wedding and those in Australia usually get in touch 6-9 months before their wedding day. At the very latest 3 months from the date you want to send a bespoke invitation.

From the ready to go collection, I suggest a month from the date you want to send it to your guests.

How long will it take for calligraphy work? When should I book it in?
Berry and Peg takes a limited amount of calligraphy bookings per month so to avoid disappointment please get in touch as early as possible. Depending on the size of the job turn around time varies, but to avoid a rush fee there needs to be at least 3 weeks between order confirmation and delivery date.




I love the invitation from one Collection but the program from another… can I mix and match?
Certainly, it is your wedding! You do as you please, just let me know on the email that you want a range of items from separate collections. I can certainly do my best to incorporate them into your perfect stationery set! Please note it may involve an extra custom design fee, but get in touch and we can find out how best to cater for your needs!

Can you make matching accessories for on the day, like wedding programs, table numbers or thank you cards that aren’t pictured on this website?
Absolutly! I just love getting creative. You can mix and match what you want but the options for a wedding suite in your design are; Wedding Invitation, Save the Date, Wedding map Insert Card (accommodation card,special requirements card, etc), RSVP card, Wedding Program, Menu, Table Numbers, Thank You Cards, Belly Bands, Engagement Party Invitations, Bridal Shower Invitations and envelopes.
What options do you have for the finish and trims of my invites?

I have a large range of ribbons, gross grain ribbon, twine, coloured bakers twine, material and other trims you can choose from, if you have something in mind let me know and we can work together to finish your suite with belly bands and matching envelopes.

Paper wise I have 3 options for my trusted paper stocks.
A luxurious 300gsm eco-linen card stock, a 300gsm slightly off-white extrude paper (feels like water-colour paper), both suit invitations and hand crafted illustrations with their textured surfaces. Or 300gsm kraft card stock, a natural looking card which is perfect for rustic weddings.

Can you organise all the printing for us?
Of course we can! We work to take the hassle out of the printing process for you. We select fine paper stocks and manage the whole process for you, finishing with delivery to your door.
Can I organise all the printing myself?
