Personalised Wedding Presents & How To Order Yours!

This week we've had lots of lovely new orders for our bespoke typographic artwork (and for a few of our limited designs too!). I love to share our special creations as they always offer design inspriation...so wanted to take a moment to share a couple of recent framed prints that I have created as wedding presents for Brides and Grooms.

600 x 400mm Black Framed Print
green, grey, teal and black in a contemporary font

600 x 400mm Black Framed Print
white, black and grey, in our classic 'wedding' font

As always, all words, fonts, colours and print mediums were chosen and submitted by the customers online at http://www.morethanwords.uk.com/.

Completely Bespoke

We are very proud that More Than Words offers a totally unique service in terms of its customised online ordering process. All design details can be entered via our website. Rather than having to wait patiently for us to contact you after placing your order, our cherished customers know exactly what they are buying before parting with payment.

So how does the 'bespoke' process work?

  • First of all, select your desired layout (landscape, portrait or square), size and panel type (vintage framed canvas, gallery-wrapped canvas, diamond-polished acrylic or a redwood pine framed print).
  • Once you have entered your words you can then then have fun mixing your very own colours, using our 'Colour Picker'. Select one background colour and up to four word colours.


  • When you are happy with your colours you can then select a font from our list (although if you have a favourite we're always more than happy to use this!). to complement your style.
  • Finally, if you have any special requests then you can enter them too, otherwise leave the design process to us!
  • You will receive a proof of your design via email within 5 working days and only once you are completely happy with this will it be printed onto the panel of your choice. Our printing process takes a maximum of 14 working days.

"I loved the fact that I could be so involved in the design, even mixing my own colours. What a fantastic concept and a super-easy to use website! I'm so glad we found you. Such a personal service." C Hargreaves.

We have a number of bespoke themes (memories, weddings, babies and children, poetry, quotes and lyrics, favourite things and destinations) that fit most typographic design requests but always LOVE to work on commissions. Please contact sales@morethanwords.uk.com with your design ideas.

The Scent of Memories

Almost all of our bespoke typographic designs centre around capturing memories - a wedding keepsake for the happy couple, precious new babies, favourite family times throughout the years, the lyrics from that 'first dance' song...

When a couple came to us recently and asked if we could commission an acrylic design to capture the scents that reminded them of their special moments together, we couldn't wait to get started.

Scents, after all, are suggested by scientific research to be the strongest memory trigger of all. Whether it be the sharp smell of freshly mown grass reminding you of the sunny days you spent climbing trees as a child...or, like me, catching a whiff of the perfume or aftershave you wore on your wedding day and suddenly reliving those moments again (I keep mine only for special occasions and whenever I wear it memories of our special day come flooding back).

This commissioned design was inspired by the couple's absolute favourite smells, using their chosen words to create two iconic bottles.

The design was printed onto our 8mm diamond-polished acrylic, supplied with four aluminium spacers. We print onto heavyweight professional photograph paper, using archival inks, and then apply a heat seal to the rear. Produced to Fine Art standards.

Another example of the broad range of totally unique typographic designs that More Than Words can offer.

Please feel free to contact us if you have something quirky in mind...we're up for anything. sales@morethanwords.uk.com

We Love Ben Eine - 'TWENTY FIRST CENTURY CITY'

If you know More Than Words then you'll know that we're serious fans of quirky unpretentious typographic art. And we just love Ben Eine.

You may have come across prolific ex-street artist, and typography obsessive, Ben Eine's shutter art in many a news article. Or perhaps you've been lucky enough to spot some of his designs whilst taking a stroll down Middlesex Street in the Spitalfieds area of East London, where Eine spent a very long time persuading shop owners to allow him to spray paint each of their shutters in his trademark vibrant colours. The result was this.... ....Alphabet Street
Eine is the man behind the printing of some seriously iconic art over the last few years. His sought after screen printing and spray skills sit amongst the ranks of the elusive Banksy.

Prime Minister David Cameron today, on his first trip to Washington DC as PM, offered US President Obama one of Eine's creations as an official gift in an 'Art Swap'.

This 3ft x 2ft Twenty First Century City canvas is the design that David (well, we hear it was actually his wife, Samantha) chose to make his statement...how very cool indeed. You can find out more about how Eine opted to offer this design, here.

Keep your eyes peeled for designs by Ben Eine (real name Ben Flynn). He has also taken his lettering to the streets of Paris, Stockholm, Hastings and Newcastle upon Tyne. In his commercial work he has produced numerous typographic styles, including 'shutter' and 'circus' fonts. In fact, it's very likely that you have come across his work already without even knowing it. His screenprints sell for as little as £100, but we're sure he can expect a considerable improvement in his income after this recent recognition.

A few of our 'Favourite Things'

Today More Than Words waved off another, rather funky, custom 'Favourite Things' typographic design. The customer selected their bespoke colours and noted their special requirements via our website and the result was this....
...and from the customer..."My print has just arrived and I absolutely love it!!! Such a fabulously personal piece, made better by the excellent customer service you have provided. I shall be raving about you for ages!!"

Totally Typographic....

It's been a busy few weeks creating bespoke 'word art' for our lovely customers. I haven't had time to share any but today I have a few delights to illustrate the varying requests that we get every day....

I have to start with another beautiful vintage framed wedding canvas in classic grey.





I love it when a customer has something very specific in mind. The below light wooden framed 800 x 535mm wedding print was designed to the exact requirements of the bride-to-be, as a gift for her mother to say thank you for all of her help with the wedding.




Another one of our custom destination blinds...more amazing places...Cannes, my favourite!




More Than Words also offers personalised flag designs via Gift Wrapped and Gorgeous and Swings & Pretty Things (Not On The High Street), the most popular being the Union Jack of course but I have to share a recent Scottish flag design, created as a leaving gift for the company's Scottish Chief Information Officer...using all of the sayings he was well know for! How unique....

Creating memories from words in a real array of designs....as we always say, the opportunities are endless. Commissions always 'More Than' welcome!

Thy Love

Introducing the first typographic artwork design in our Unlimited Collection - 'Thy Love'.

The word 'LOVE' has been created using the entire script from Shakespeare's famous Romeo & Juliet - the oh so romantic "balcony scene" (Act II, Scene II), when the pair pledge their love for each other.

This beautiful script is known to all, dating back to 1594. What better way to declare your love than by offering this personalised typographic 'LOVE' design to your other half, or as a unique wedding gift?

The design can be personalised with up to six words, perhaps to commemorate a special occassion such as a wedding date. We are also able to alter the colours if you have something specific in mind. Once we receive your order we will contact you to discuss your requirements.

Available as a framed print, on our signature vintage framed canvas (it looks amazing in our black ornate frame), on standard canvas or acrylic. For a larger image, click here (more images coming soon!).

We hope you like it!

Typographic LOVE for our new Unlimited Collection

As of today you can spot an Unlimited Collection section on our website. Pride of place sits our new typographic design, 'Thy Love'...read all about it in the next post.

We have so many new design ideas which have been waiting for their special place on our More Than Words site and now we have it! Each design will simply be unlimited in the number of prints produced.

Keep your eyes peeled for new typographic designs which we will slowly launch (in between our influx of bespoke orders!) via our blog, Facebook page and of course Twitter (@MoreThanWordArt).

From the Bride to her Groom

Wet your Whistle....'Time for a Brew'

Introducing our latest typographic design 'Time for a Brew'...

Limited Edition - 'Time for a Brew'

This gorgeous little vintage teacup is solely composed from the words of a beautiful 17th century poem about tea:
When the world is all at odds
And the mind is all at sea
Then cease the useless tedium
And brew a cup of tea.

There is magic in its fragrance,
There is solace in its taste;
And the laden moments vanish
Somehow into space.

And the world becomes a lovely thing!
There's beauty as you'll see;
All because you briefly stopped
To brew a cup of tea.

Tea helps our head and heart
Tea medicates most every part.
Tea rejuvenates the very old
Tea warms the hands of those who're cold.

J.Jonker

Our new piece is so special that we've limited it to only 250 prints. Available on canvas (including our statement vintage framed canvas), acrylic or as a framed print. Please visit http://www.morethanwords.uk.com/ for size and price details here. Starting from £75.00.

We hope you like it! It complements our fancy china teapot perfectly. 'A Nice Cup of Tea'...composed using the words from George Orwell's essay in which he offers tips on how to make the perfect cuppa.

And never forget, in the words of English dramatist Sir Arthur Pinero, 'While there's tea, there's hope'.

Catch up time....Baby Show...Destination Wall Art...Weddings...

Well, once again I have been so busy that this lovely little blog has had to wait patiently for an update but that just means that there's plenty to add to this 'catch-up' post.



We had a great day at Brighton's BabyExpo last weekend. The hard work that Mr MTW put into building our little stand paid off and it looked great, showcasing our beautiful bespoke children's designs. We also took along some of our other themes (a bespoke Memories typographic design (for the prize draw!) , Custom Destinations Scroll and a personalised Union Jack) which were very well received.


More Than Words has also been featured in a few lovely blogs recently, including PiddleyPix.com who recommend our typographic art as the perfect anniversary gift, and wedding blog I.Wed.Style which offers another recommendation our vintage framed bespoke wedding canvas.

Our 'personalised Destinations wall art', available on canvas or as a framed print (in a range of sizes, colours and fonts), and based on vintage bus and tram scrolls, has been very popular over the last couple of weeks. Also sold via our stockists Lily and Lime, and recently featuring in a Not On the High Street email as their pick of the best travel-inspired designs. What special places would you choose to capture? I've had some amazing locations this week!


We have also spent some time updating our website with recent customer feedback....make sure you check out our Testimonials page.

And finally, we have recently had our very own wedding featured in one of the UK's top wedding blogs, Love My Dress. Annabel also recently featured our vintage framed canvas. You can read all about our special day here. We were very excited to find that it was also #6 out of 100 top 'wedding tweets' on Twitter!
