New Zealand Pride In Print Awards

The New Zealand Pride In Print Awards is a industry print award that is a extremely difficult and prestigious award to earn based on print, handcrafted skills, design and quality. It is where the “who’s who” in print and advertising go to see the “Best of the Best” in the print industry. 

Alyssandra Skerrett of alyssandra – Striking Stationery is proudly a multi-award winning Stationer, who has earned 13 Gold Medals and 9 Highly Commendeds since 2014. “It sends a clear message that my product is seen as quality that is recognised by the industry. It instils confidence in a potential client about the quality of my craftsmanship – which is truly an honour and I am so grateful. Every year gets tougher, but the work throughout New Zealand is absolutely amazing to see!”

Sue Archibald, Manager of the Pride In Print Awards, said Alyssandra’s win is remarkable. “She has achieved a huge level of recognition in her first attempt. The standard of critique by our panels of judges is exacting, so for her to reach the gold standard is a massive compliment to the quality of her work. It also shows that the ‘small’ personal design company can compete with the best. That is the essence of Pride In Print.” By Dave MacIntyre 2014

A Few Testimonials

Modern Peonies - Chloe and Shaun

NZ Pride In Print – Gold Award Winning

We were so lucky to have Alyssandra as our wedding stationer.

She is a long time family friend, and she was like my fairy god mother throughout my whole wedding process.

Alyssandra is not only amazing, creative and dedicated at creating unique stationery for your wedding, but she has so many ideas of how a wedding is run and things you might of forgotten about.  We had so much fun designing our wedding stationery with Alyssandra right up to the card names on the tables to our candy bar.

Everyone who received our wedding invites said they were the most beautiful wedding invitations they had ever seen.

I was on cloud nine the day I opened up the New Zealand Bride and Groom magazine to find my wedding stationery design inside.  It’s an absolute honour to have it shared once again.

Amisfield - Lyn and Richard

NZ Pride In Print – Gold Award Winning

Alyssandra you are so talented and creative. We were thrilled when we received our invites for our wedding at Amisfield. Your attention to detail was exceptional, down to including our precious cat Tom. We loved the fact that you incorporated our colour theme throughout the invitation. The three dimensional pearls were a perfect finishing touch. The font was an ideal size and easy to read. We were impressed with the overall quality of the invitation. The booklet which people could take out and carry on the day was a great idea. With the wedding celebrations spread out over two days the map in the centre of the book proved to be invaluable for many of our guests who were new to the Queenstown area. The invite, which so perfectly matched the venue, will always serve as a reminder of our precious wedding day at Amisfield.

So many people commented that our invite was the best wedding invitation they have ever seen. Amisfield have a copy of the invite, which the manager said he would be sure to pass onto their marketing team.

Thank you for a wonderful piece of artwork.

Enchantment - Rebecca and Thomas

Alyssandra you are wonderful!

We would like to thank you for the beautiful stationery you created for our wedding. From the invitations right through to the thank you cards everything tied together perfectly.

Aly, you were a pleasure to work with and somehow had the ability to know exactly what we wanted even when we didn’t know ourselves.  Being involved in the process all the way from design to the assembly of the final products made for a very unique experience.

We loved our stationery and so did our guests, thank you so much. We cannot recommend your creativity and enthusiasm highly enough to future clients. 

Enchantment - Peter & Bernice (Parents of Rebecca)

The whole experience in developing the stationery was wonderful. You made everything so very easy for us all.

We enjoyed being able to do some of the finishing touches ourselves with Rebecca’s future in-law’s. It made it special to all be able to be involved in the process. To see Thomas’s dad tying the bows was a great thing. The fun and laughter that surrounded this was a great memory for all of us.

We don’t know of anyone who threw the stationery away after the wedding and one family friend used it as inspiration to design a stunning platter for the bride and groom.

Your attention to detail right down to the design of the fans for the order of service was excellent as the tiny Central Otago church was going to be very hot in the summer and the fans were put to great use!

The Menus on the tables were stunning with gorgeous shots of the Central Otago area with descriptions of every place our guests were blown away by it. The stunning acetate butterflies you produced for the church and seating plan were delicate and beautiful.  The priest used this touch in his sermon as it all tied in so beautifully. I can tell you that these butterflies’ are now still adorning walls and were used afterwards by some little school children for special cards at Rebecca’s mother in laws school. Your constant attention to detail for Rebecca’s Wedding was wonderful and beyond what we expected, so thank you.

We would have no hesitation in recommending you for wedding stationery, as it isn’t just stationery it’s a stunning gift to give your guests to remember as well.

Taranaki Tattoo - Maz and Dean

Our entire journey from beginning to end while organising our wedding stationery with Alyssandra was thoroughly enjoyable. Alyssandra’s personal touch, extensive experience and attention to detail took all the stress and worry away from us. 

Not only did she take on board, visualise and design our personalised stationery, she also gave us valuable advice to do with other areas of our wedding planning. 

By coming across her stand at the 2013 NZ Bride and Groom Show not only did we find the perfect person to work with on our stationery we found with Alyssandra a complete wealth of wedding knowledge and information.

Writing this has brought back memories for us as this time last year we found you and were on the home straight to planning our special day.

Fantail Design - Michael and Imelda

NZ Pride In Print – Gold Award Winning

Imelda and I used Alyssandra for our wedding stationery, and are both so pleased that we did. 

Every request we made was never a problem even when we wanted to change something Alyssandra had spent many hours on. The fact that every thing is hand made and drawn from scratch gave us the feeling it was truly ours knowing that no one else had anything the same added a little more magic to our occasion. 

To have people now, months after the invites went out, still talk about how beautiful they looked again tells we made the right decision.
