Diy-invites.co.uk and how it began
My name is Cally and I started Diy-Invites what feels like a long time ago. I never intended to start my own business though!
When I was looking to get married, I couldn’t find wedding invitations that were just right for me, so I decided to make my own. After my wedding, friends of mine started to ask me to make their invitations. Next thing I knew, their friends were asking me to make their invites as well. By the following year, word of mouth had spread and I was making invitations for people I had never met before. This is how the main company of ‘Cards by Cally’ was started.
In 2015, Diy-invites.co.uk was born. I wanted to make it easier for anyone who found themselves in my original position of feeling the need, or desire, to make their own invitations. With some people wanting to be hands-on, and others wanting to be more hands-off, Diy-invites seemed like the natural way forward. Our aim is simple. To help you make your own invitations as professionally as possible.
Still a family-run business, we are delighted to be going from strength to strength. What we really want is for your special day to be absolutely amazing. Whatever the event you are celebrating, you should have the freedom to have everything, exactly as you would like it. We just want to help you on the way.
Wishing you all the best, Cally

T he environment is at the front of our thoughts. We understand the impact that using paper products has on the environment. It is not just the trees themselves, but also the wildlife that lives on and around them, and even the oxygen that we breathe. As a Mum, I want my children to grow up in a beautiful world.
We pride ourselves on sourcing as many of our products as we can from recycled materials. Cardstock that isn’t recycled comes from paper-mills that use carefully managed forests, where new trees are replanted for every one felled. We even try to use eco-glitter wherever possible so that we minimise the world’s problems with micro-plastics. Even our packaging materials are either recycled or reused wherever possible.
