Ethical Code

Graphic Embers is an award winning wedding stationery business in Northumberland and Newcastle Upon Tyne, in North East England, offering a wide range of stationery styles and types as well as bespoke design, wishing trees and vintage hire. We provide our  wedding stationery and hire services in Northumberland, Tyne & Wear and County Durham, as well as offering stationery throughout the United Kingdom. Established by Matt McGurk in 2011 and taken over by Angela McGurk after her maternity leave in 2012, Graphic Embers won the stationery category of the North of England Wedding Awards within its first year. We've already made stationery which has been put in front of Knights, Ladies and royalty.


The Graphic Embers ethos is centred around providing high quality wedding stationery, which includes offering a bespoke design service as we want your wedding invitations to be as individual as you are.  Although we do have a wide range of 'off the shelf' designs to choose from as well, if you prefer. All of our standard designs can be customised to suit your colour scheme and individual needs.


We can also provide corporate stationery design and have provided graphic design and branding services to small businesses. We provide the same high quality and ethical standards for corporate work as we do for individual clients.


"Graphic Embers have simply been superb. They have gone to great lengths to ensure that our ideas were met. They have supported and suggested designs, exceeding all expectation."

"Amazing customer service, quick response to emails, kept me up to date with how my order was progressing through each stage of manufacture, extremely helpful with recommending complimentary products, their care and passion for each product they create really shows in both their emails and their work, they have been by far the best supplier I have used during planning our wedding. The finished products I ordered were truly amazing"
