UNIQUE CUSTOM CAKES AND STATIONERY
Cake Ink. love to work with you to create custom cakes and stationery to complement your special day.
Our custom service is pretty simple and we are completely flexible to fit in with you. Our jobs are taken on a project-by-project basis and no two custom jobs are the same. We are happy to work with our clients in person or via email, we can chat on the phone or you can come visit us in our studio in Keysborough.
The first step is to get in touch with us and we can discuss your requirements. We will then email you a detailed quote that outlines as much information as possible. If we look to be on the same page, then we require a 30% deposit before commencement of any work – this is 50% refundable if things don’t work out but we have started working on stationery design, or 100% refundable if no work has been commenced and it is 21 days or more away from your event date.
The design process is the fun part! We will discuss your day in detail – everything from your dress, venue, florals, décor, colour scheme, bridal party, home town, how you met, your favourite place to holiday – it is all taken into consideration while working on your design. We pride ourselves on creating stationery and cake that ‘work in’ with everything else and truly tell a story about you and reflect your personalities. Once we have a good idea of your event, we then work with you to put together a mood board with lots of visual inspiration and ideas to inspire where we are headed with your project.
We will then email you some proofs of your custom design, and we can then work together to get it right. We offer up to two design concepts, and within these we can make as many changes and revisions as necessary to get the design just right. Perfection is important to us!
At this stage if we are working on stationery, you will receive PDF proofs via email to approve before print to ensure everything is perfect. Printing and delivery of custom projects takes up to three weeks to be completed (often sooner). Wedding day stationery and items, plus of course cakes and other sweets, can be delivered to the venue.
We also offer a styling and set-up service - for a small fee we will arrive at your venue alongside your other vendors to help set up for the day. We will ensure the cake and stationery are all perfectly in place, and that all elements work well with the décor, place settings, floral arrangements, etc. We are also happy to work alongside other preferred vendors like florists, wedding stylists and photographers, to ensure a cohesive and seamless look right throughout your event.
Final payment is invoiced and due one week prior to your event date.
We offer a complete custom stationery design service for all types of events. This includes bespoke design and illustration that is unique to you and your special day, or we also offer customisation of any of the designs available in our shop – if you see something you love but would like to tweak it to make it your own, just send us an email with your requests.
Custom stationery items available include invite suites, reception stationery and décor including table number signage, menus, signage and framed prints, seating plans and welcome signs, place cards, cake boxes and bags, gift tags or favour packaging, ceremony booklets or programs, thank you cards – the list is endless! Cake Ink. can also offer unique solutions to your needs, so any ideas you might have we would be happy to discuss.
If you would like to see some of our stationery in person, you can order a sample pack (email us for details) or make an appointment to meet with us in our studio. All of our stationery is printed digitally, but we do offer specialised print services like letterpress, metallic, embossing or raised print and laser cutting – we would love to chat with you to discuss your ideas.

Your cake design process begins via email, phone or a private consultation with Janelle at our studio. We offer a sample tasting box of flavours for a fee $30 (redeemable off your final invoice). Tasting boxes are beautifully packaged and shipped from our studio on a bi-monthly basis, so please let us know if you wish to place an order.
