A bit about us | Award Winning Stationers
Welcome to I Do designs and thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and have a look through our website and for your interest in our designs and business. My name is Louise O’Neill and I am the proud owner and founder of I Do designs – multi award-winning Wedding Stationers in Stockport, Cheshire.
I started the business back in 2009 and since then it has grown from year after year and I now into a work from a lovely office in Hazel Grove, Stockport – near Manchester. I Do Designs is expanding all of the time though and rapidly becoming one of the leading providers of wedding stationers in Manchester and Cheshire.
How it all began
David and I got married in September 2009 at the Deanwater Hotel in Woodford, Cheshire and at the time I really struggled to find the “perfect” wedding stationery design so I designed and made all of the stationery for my own Wedding.
I enjoyed the process and work involved so much that I decided to help others find their perfect wedding stationery.
Not just any wedding stationer
I began working on a business concept that embraced a flexible, mix & match approach to design where options and choice were almost unlimited (within reason…). I Do Designs literally means I do designs – new ones all of the time infact! I don’t work with restrictive “collections” or random design names and I am constantly looking for fresh, innovative designs.
Despite having so many options I try and keep the ordering process as simple as possible and cater for any clients with fresh and exciting ideas. Whether you are looking to order a fully personalised sample online or having something unique with our bespoke design service, I am only too happy to help.
Meet the Team …
Anj has over 20 year’s experience in the design and printing industry.
Corporate clients include Gino D’Acampo, Individual Restaurants Chain, Whirlpool, a variety of Cheese manufacturers and some other rather random and interesting businesses inbetween! Anj has decided to side step into the wonderful world of weddings and, as co-director of Thinking Out Loud, we are excited to have her on board.
In her spare time she loves to spend time with her family, friends and Labrador Molly .. which usually involves the occasional glass of gin!
Creative Administration Assistant
Katie joined us in May 2017 and is working in the office with us alongside completing her illustration degree. Despite only having been with us for a short time it’s like she has always been here. Her passion for art and illustration is a great asset to the business and we’re really excited about what designs we can create during her time with us.
In her spare time Katie enjoys sketching and she has a passion for stationery (ofcourse!). If you would to see more of Katie’s work you can visit her website: www.behance.net/kcartstudio

Cally has been working with I Do designs since January 2014. Before working with us she studied Art & Design and she also spent some time studying Fine Art. Most of the day Cally will be found working on orders and ensuring they are perfect before being sent out to couples. Cally loves photography and has recently taken over our instagram and facebook accounts.

Office MascotLast but not least there’s Hurley! He is my ever loving and happy cocker spaniel. He never fails to bring a smile to our faces and is a joy to have around .. although we keep him away when couples come to visit as he is a little bit bouncy!
Hurley spends most of his days chasing balls, jumping in muddy puddles and swimming! I spend most of mine updating his Instagram account: www.instagram.com/hurleycocker/
Nationwide & International Coverage
I have built up a very strong reputation and client base in the Manchester and Cheshire area of the UK. However, operating an online business these days has meant I have been able to work with many couples from all over the country and even overseas.
The free sample and colour matching service works really well no matter where you live. All wording proofs will be sent via email which helps speed up the process too.
