Paper Veil was created in 2015 by illustrator and graphic designer Laura Vann, working from a small studio based in Nottingham. Laura was working as a designer at the time when she was asked by a friend to design wedding invites using an illustrated bluebell design and from there the business really started!


Not that much has changed today. Laura is still designing and likes to spend a lot of her time working on illustrative projects, but now does it alongside her husband Theo and guinea-pig Harley. 


It’s this small team that operate Paper Veil day-to-day and that’s just the way we like it. We work on everything ourselves and are proud of what we create.

Our Ethos

We pride ourselves on being a mindful company when it comes to resources and the environment. Understandably, printed stationery can be considered a massive strain on paper resource but we still think that a physical set of beautiful printed stationery for your big day is just unbeatable. Beautiful things shouldn't cost the earth, so we do our best to find the middle ground so you can have both. 

We use a trusted printing company, based in the UK that has gained the ISO14001 certification. Meaning they have been monitored and evaluated on how they manage and process waste and efficiently use resources to ensure it's as responsible as it can be.​ We didn't just choose them for their excellent environmental practices, but they also passed our own quality tests; Against their competitors they produced the best quality prints that were the closest match to our original artwork.

We also operate as mindfully as possible. All of our own admin is paperless, and where possible we'll used recycled packaging materials to send out your prints and will only ever order exactly the amounts of prints we need.
