CLIQX and Watermarx’s work is award-winning in its own right, so we’re not surprised clever printers choose to work with us, to help make their jobs shine…literally. Our foil stamping and edge gilding find a way onto some lovely print pieces. Likewise,  CLIQX embossing and debossing, blind embossing, and letterpress have all been recognised in print industry awards around the world.

So, be a winner! If you are looking to get some trophies under your belt, or would just like to take your print work to the next level, let’s work together to craft pieces that stand out from the crowd and showcase what fabulous, fine print is all about!

WOODEN YOU KNOW IT? | Invitation with wood paper from KW Doggett

To celebrate the wonderful, Wood FX Birch, a KW Doggett stock that is really rustling the leaves of the design community, we recently got to do one of our favourite things – collaborate!

Our brief from KW Doggett was “wood” and – wooden you know it? – we had some bright ideas about what we could do with that!

Wood FX Birch is real wood that prints just like paper and has a white reverse. It’s a beautiful, printable wood veneer that lends itself to everything from eco business, vintage-themed projects, to outdoor weddings, and flexible enough for presentation folders, business cards, menus, and, of course, invitations.

We foiled stamped the names on the wooden front in a gunmetal foil. Then, we mounted the reverse of the card to cotton stock and letterpress printed it. The bride and groom used the same front mounted to black white paper for their thank you cards.

Woof FX is a unique and versatile stock, that can be letterpressed. It comes in both Birch (used for this project) and Cherry. We don’t want to get sappy (get it?) but we’re pretty excited about this innovation, that brings a lot of personality to print, and we can’t wait to work with more of it.

Talk to us about how it can be used in your next creative project. We wood love to work with you on something amazing!

VA-VA-VOOM | Khouzame Group bring together a WOW invite

We have printed stationery for the events and catering company, Khouzame Group, many times over the  years and appreciate their attention to detail and quality they insist upon, going always above the call of duty on behalf of their customers. They realise exquisite occasions, putting in a tremendous effort to bring to life the vision of their clients for their special events, and make dreams (and dream days) a reality, with style and panache, and a lot of hard work (that they make look effortless)!

So, you can imagine how excited we were when they reached out to us for input into a special job for their client. They asked us to recommend a designer for a suite of wedding stationery, and we didn’t hesitate. We recommended Heather Hawkins of Hawk Creative. Heather always produces such stunning bespoke design for event stationery, and she delivered as always with this challenge.

Happy were we to unite these two talented businesses to collaborate on a beautiful piece of work. It bought together the best of all of Watermarx’s capabilities too. The result was a luxurious suite.
