Our love has travelled with us ...

Very excited to share one of our latest designs with you. I have posted the cover of the invite a couple weeks ago but here is the full invite. Its a hard covered leather passport style invite. Vintage feel with antique map lining. Cover has been laser engraved but could look really nice in a shiny foil or alternatively embossed with a personally designed monogram. We have a number of different coloured leathers as well as range of other materials that could be used to match your theme

At Crystal Print we like everything vintage, so here is some of our favourite finds from gifts to decor to give your wedding day that vintage flair :

Rhubarb Room is the latest edition to Bree Street, a lifestyle store specialising in furniture and gifts. Through the red door, this old mining cottage is brimming with old world stationery; quirky quaint prints; bath and body products, clothingand jewellery; reels of ribbon; nostalgic toys; retro antiques plus charming lifestyle and homewares.

Moi (French for "me"), a unique French-inspired home and gift boutique based in Pretoria and Johannesburg, provides that same feeling of French charm through its selection of precious imported French goods, handpicked treasures, quaint d├ęcor accessories, vintage gifts and shabby chic furniture.

Whether you are looking for a special gift for someone who appreciates attention to detail, or want to add an extra touch of elegance to your own home, lapoplap has something for you. Napkins, table runners and more ....

I am a qualified graphic designer with a flair for more than just graphic design.

I refuse to just design on screen. I want to create.

This started years ago, growing up surrounded by the process of designing and manufacturing all sorts of interesting candles in my parents’ Kapula Candles factory in Bredasdorp.

In 2010 I teamed up with a Bredasdorp ceramist, Martin Swart, to experiment by transferring my designs onto ceramics. ceramics can be ordered via email or found at MILIEU shop in Stellenbsoch as well as Caramel & Co in Parlmayra Mall, Claremont

The Wedding Dress

Elbeth Gillis's couture designs blow me away!!!

Timeless design meets sophisticated style; the Elbeth Gillis brand is the hallmark of all that is feminine, as eternal and inspiring as the union of marriage itself. Now the bridal couturier is taking the next step, bringing together the classic tailoring and attention to detail of bridal wear to the world of ready-to-wear fashion.
Founded in 1997, the Elbeth Gillis brand has emerged as the preeminent house of bridal couture. Driven by an unrivaled degree of quality and subtle sensuality, each dress is a journey; from fabrics sourced internationally to original designs to the personal touches, every dress is as unique as the bride who wears it.
As the head of her eponymous brand, Elbeth embodies the same virtues that her brides find in their dresses — style, charm, and uncompromising class. With a three-year fashion diploma from The Cape Peninsula University of Technology behind her, as well as twenty years experience in the industry, Elbeth's work is testament to her talent in creating the perfect garment.
Encouraged by the overwhelming support of the industry and her clientele, Elbeth Gillis is expanding her brand beyond bridal to the world of luxury ready-to-wear and evening couture. Opening with a cocktail collection, as well as collaborating with luxury industry partners, the Elbeth Gillis brand will be expanding like never before.
Yet, even in these times of change, Elbeth Gillis will never forget that the real triumph is, and will always be, in producing the finest quality hand-made garments that dreams are made of.

Wedding Invitation Designs

New wedding invitation designs -
head on over to  and let us know what you think?


The Wedding Ring

How cool are these!!!

Brent and Jess created the first fingerprint wedding bands in the early 2000s. In 2007 they finally had the opportunity to pursue their dream of starting their own business and began listing the Original Custom Fingerprint Wedding Band in sterling silver on the fine craft website The idea was picked up by several wedding blogs, and customers quickly began asking for the rings in finer materials.
Master Jewelers with more than 15 years experience, Brent and Jess were certainly qualified to begin crafting their rings in precious metals. While the Original Custom Fingerprint Wedding Band is still offered in sterling silver, Brent and Jess have expanded their line over the years to include many fingerprint jewelry creations in bronze, gold, palladium, and platinum.
What better thing to keep with you than your partner’s fingerprint? Our custom jewelry features the fingerprint of your loved one in its exact image. It is not etched, it is not engraved, and it is not the reverse view like it would be with an ink stamp. We use a patented process–one that none of today’s jewelers use–to create an exact replica of the ridges and valleys of your finger. We do use the art of lost wax casting which is an ancient process.  Though the process of casting the rings is ancient, our rings are cast using state of the art techniques to give you the best product. We buy our new raw materials from American manufacturers who boast responsibility and use at least  1/2 recycled material.
