  1. I wanted to write a short blog post to talk you though the different personalisation that I offer - Hand written, modern calligraphy and digitally created vinyl lettering.

Slightly more cost effective due to fewer materials being used - just acrylic paint and my hand! I offer a range of colours for you to choose from. Hand lettering is best suited to items with a smooth surface, such as acrylic, glass, mirrors, chalkboard etc.

     Vinyl Lettering - crisp and clean, available in a HUGE choice of fonts and colours too. Vinyl can be applied to items that I may not be able to hand write on due to their texture - pallets and Oak slices are an example of this. Slightly more expensive due to the extra time needed preparing each design, and of course the materials used to create the finished pieces. There will not be a variation between pieces due to the vinyl being machine cut.

     

    As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch. I am more than happy to offer advice as to which method may suit your theme and help you achieve the look you are dreaming of for your big day!

    So… here I am, sat writing my first For Keeps blog, with so many things to say, I am not even sure where to begin. But here goes!

    You may have already had a browse through my website, and maybe spotted the ‘About Me’ page, but if you haven’t - Hello! I am Amie. Founder, designer, creator and face behind For Keeps.

    I am based in Norfolk, but one of the wonderful things about my products is that they can be posted to wherever in the world you might be.

    There are four sections to the business - Acrylic, Chalkboards, Wood and Custom! I am able to supply items for the first three, but Custom? Well, that is up to YOU!

    If you have items that you have sourced for your wedding, and need them jazzing up, get in touch! From pallets and crates, to sash windows and mirrors, I can sign write by hand, or design and apply vinyl lettering to personalise them for you big day.

    Both methods of personalising work better on some items than they do on others, but that is what I am here for. I will guide you and talk you though the benefits of each, advising what I feel would physically work the best but also suit the look your are wanting to achieve.
