Hi, I'm Lizzie, designer / creator behind Connie & Joan wedding invitations, stationery and downloadable templates.
Design and being creative has always been something that keeps me busy and holds my interest - whether it’s interiors, soft furnishings, graphic design, illustration or keeping up to date with the latest computer design technology and how it can be used.
A few years back, working as web designer for the Press Association in London, I designed and maintained websites for the Royal family - including their online magazine 'Royal Insight’. Having web design knowledge and this experience has been greatly beneficial in understanding the visual differences between print and web, and the advantages of having been involved in browser testing has helped a great deal with software problem solving. All of which has prepared and enabled me to design, create (and help where needed) digital templates that can be customised by the user before turning them into unique and personal stationery items.
'Connie & Joan' came about when I started providing brides & grooms with affordable yet professionally designed invitation templates for their weddings and it has progressed from there. I now offer a wide range of stationery templates for weddings (and am slowly adding other occasions). These templates you would customise with your own wording and change colours where shown (to compliment your colour theme) before having them printed at your local print/copy shop, online or instantly in the comfort of your home!
I am continually adding templates to the shop... and love hearing all about your ideas as it helps me in providing something a bit different and unique, while also keeping up with trends. So if you can't find what you're looking for, please message me!
Each of my templates come with clear, easy to follow instructions on how to create the final product, whether it's a wedding invitation, folded program or signage.
But if you find you need extra help or you're having a computer problem, please let me know as I'm always happy to help out! The goal is that you will have beautiful stationery on your special day!
Making your own wedding stationery is really quite fun and fairly simple to do... Start with a professionally designed template and bring your vision to life :)
You might like to try one of my free templates / printables on my website: connieandjoan.com
Some of you may wish to know that I am now creating my templates in Corjl. This is really exciting as it means you can personalise the templates directly in your web browser using your mobile phone, tablet or computer! And each of the listings will have a free demo link... so you can try the template out before you buy it! Corjl is fantastic, and I'm sure you will find the whole process so much easier too!
I hope you enjoy browsing my shop.
Should you have any feedback or questions, or even ideas for me, please do drop me a line! And remember, if you're needing a bit of help with your template, I'm just an email away!

Oh... and if you're wondering, Connie and Joan were my dear grandmothers.
