Established over 150 years ago, HR Stokes provides both traditional  and  contemporary personalised stationery and invitations.

They are U.K. agents for Crane and William Arthur and are now working with Gee Brothers to provide a comprehensive service for all kinds of personal stationery.

Please contact us for a quote on any printing requirement including wedding and party invitations, letterheads, visiting cards and correspondence cards.


We specialise in a variety of printing processes.

Die-stamping and hand engraving engage the most skilled techniques and produce the finest result. The process, which has been with us for hundreds of years, can still be supplied. We employ traditional craftsmen to create the very highest quality stationery.

Thermography produces raised text by heating the ink. This technique, at its best, is an excellent modern alternative to engraving and is suitable when the quantity required is fairly small.

Letterpress, a traditional technique now used mainly for wedding invitations, adds a hand-made effect to your stationery, allowing the use of freer designs, such as florals.

Lithography and digital printing, used for most of modern print products (magazines, books), are an effective and inexpensive way of colour printing.

We are happy to advise customers as to which is the most suitable process for their orders and show illustrations of the various options available. Please refer to these guidelines.
